Easy Ways to Add Luxury to Your Day

It's a busy world we live in these days, and finding the time to unwind is a challenge in itself. A tight work schedule and that Groundhog Day feeling can sap the pleasure out of anyone's life - so it's important you can add a touch of flair to the daily grind.
There's nothing like the taste of simple luxury to perk up your routine and that VIP feeling is closer than you think. A few simple upgrades can help you fly through the day, in first class style, without breaking the bank.

Lather up in luxury
This 'unfreakinbelievable' showerhead from Siroflex has a stream of glowing reviews on Amazon.com. A hot shower is widely regarded as a daily essential in the UK, but not all showers are equal. Feeble water pressure or a shoddy showerhead can kill that feel-good start to your day, but the Siroflex turns even the weakest shower into a spa-like jet of luxury.
If your water pressure is pumping fine you can still luxe up your shower with a filter to enjoy softer hair and skin every day. No more scale and almost 0% chlorine means you can step out of the shower feeling like silky smooth, brand new you. Get yourself some luxury soaps and gels, like chocolate or coconut scented shower scrub, and those early mornings don't feel quite so difficult.

Kick start your day with extraordinary coffee
Britain has an interesting love affair with coffee. Although we rank amongst the lowest consumption rates in Europe our thriving coffee house culture dominates the high street. Espresso shots and creamy lattes aren't fuel for us like many other nations, but rather an indulgence of luxury - and one we're willing to pay good money for at that.

We may not be absolute caffeine addicts but morning coffee is the nation's favourite way to kick start the day. So why settle for a coffee house when you can brew your own cup of luxury at home? These days, there’s a massive range of beverages for coffee lovers, including your favourite flavours from the local shop, many of whom sell their own lines. So the only way to top that luxury feeling after stepping out of the shower is with your favourite cup of no ordinary coffee.

Treat yourself to the simple pleasures
We all have our own feel-good things in life and you owe it to yourself to fill your day with these as much as possible. Naturally, you can't go out and splash the cash on a daily basis, but you can make an effort to treat yourself to the simple pleasures that keep you smiling.

Indulge in the gift of giving

A slightly larger tip here and there or a spontaneous gift to one of your friends makes life that little bit sweeter.
