We are limited by our budgets. We can’t afford to jet off first class, go shopping for designer clothes or travel around in a town car.
But there are little ways that even ordinary folk like us can make ourselves feel like glamourous. And they don’t have to cost much money either.
1. Dress up
Even if there’s no particular reason to do so. It’ll make you feel confident all day.
2. Get a manicure
Manicures are usually not too expensive, ranging from €10-20, but they will make you feel fancy for days. Here are five good places to check out.
3. Buy a large, fancy looking wine glass
Then use it when you’re sitting in front of the TV drinking €4 wine.
4. Light all your candles
They do this in the movies, and now is the time to do it in real life.
5. Buy fancy tissues
They’re slightly more expensive, but the box adds a lot to the room and they’re usually very soft.
6. Go for bubbly
Spring for the extra €1-€2 for some prosecco or cava instead of your usual glass of wine.
7. Cook something tasty
Put aside the usual beans on toast for a night and cook something instagrammable. Check out our recipe section for some ideas.
8. Chill in the lobby of a fancy hotel
Curl up with a book and order a pot of tea.
9. Buy some macaroons
Ditch the usual chocolate and take things up a level. You can get them in Marks and Spencers and Dunnes Stores among others.
