Another year down, and whilst there’s a lot to be said about how the world has got us all feeling right now, there’s no doubt a bit of self-care wouldn’t go amiss. Of course, however that looks for you may vary, but getting into the habit of protecting your well-being should always remain a priority. As you “#newyearnewme” yourself into your healthy practices of choice and settle into this new season, we’ve picked out a bunch of items perfect for those “me time” moments. From positive affirmation cards to fruity bath bombs, here’s our list of personal KMI faves to keep our heads above the water.
Zig Ah Zig Ah! Print Cushion
If the sheer brightness of this cushion isn’t enough to inject some vibrant energy into your life, take the road best travelled and have a nap instead. Nothing screams self-care more than a quick snooze. Lay your head down and make room for some guilt-free rest at your own leisure. Alarm clock optional.

90s Cats Colouring Book For Adults ft. 90s R&B Classics
Okay, so you might be wondering what the connection between Cats and R&B Classics is, but it’s not every day that you get to see two cats tussling The Boy Is Mine style in a colouring book! Colouring has a profound ability to settle one’s thoughts and prompt mindfulness through the quiet and still nature of the activity. With the rise in colouring books for adults defying the assumption that it’s somehow only for kids, transport yourself back to those relaxing moments and get lost in the pages in the process.

Durable, compact and refillable too, our pump bottles are small enough to fit into your bag and big enough to make a difference. Self-care for you, self-care for everyone.
