1. Try Spa Water
Level up your water to **fancy** water. Not only does it change things up a little bit, but it adds flavor and can have some health benefits too! I like to add pieces of ginger, lemon, and mint to my water but the sky is the limit! Basically, just cut up some fruit, maybe a few fresh herbs, and put it in your water. It’s that easy. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Cucumber + Lemon
- Orange + Lemon + Lime
- Strawberry + Cilantro + Lime
2. Use a Silk Pillowcase
I love how silky smooth it feels against my skin. While I may not have a fully set of mulberry silk bedsheets, a pillowcase lets me add in a touch of luxury to my home. Plus, in addition to making your everyday lifestyle feel fancy, it’s also be reported to be good for your skin and hair!
3. Get a Manicure
Have you ever looked down at your hands while you were typing and gone, “Dang! My nails look niiiice.” Because I definitely have. Having my nails done is definitely one of the top ways that I make my everyday lifestyle feel fancy. It’s such a small thing but it’s so easy to do. It doesn’t have to be expensive either. You can totally go to a salon or just do it yourself! I personally have a gel kit I bought off of amazon and it makes it look like I got my nails done all the time but I actually did them myself! Or if I don’t do gels, I’m a sucker for the expressie nail polish line– quick drying, quality, and colorful!
4. Wear a Nice Robe or Kimono
I don’t know what it is about having a robe/kimono, but something about it just makes me feel fancy in the morning. Even if I’ve done nothing else other than put on a robe in the morning, suddenly I’ve gone from disgruntled human stumbling around the kitchen in her pajamas to a classy lady leisurely going about her routine.
5. Wear Matching Pajama Sets
Similar to the above, there’s something about having a matching set that makes you feel put together. Try wearing a matching pajama set! Bonus points if they’re silky.
6. Do a Face Mask
Now I love me some self care and face masks are one of my favorite ways to do it. Plus, while you’re relaxing with your face mask on, it kind of reminds you of the spa, which is fancy AF.
7. Get Yourself Some Fresh Flowers
There’s something about fresh flowers that just makes your everyday life feel fancy. Now, flowers can totally be expensive, but you don’t need to go to a florist for an arrangement. I love going to Trader Joes and getting a small bouquet that I then put on my desk. It’s a nice splash of color and looking at them makes me smile.
8. Have an Established Skin Routine
Look good, feel good, right? When my skin is nice, I feel totally great. Going through the steps of my skincare routine helps me feel fancy and helps me take care of my skin.
9. Use a Jade Roller
Maybe it’s all due to the beauty hype, but I think jade rollers are fancy AF. It’s a pretty little tool that you can use to massage your face and it not only helps with circulation but feels so nice. Is it totally extra? Maybe. But it definitely helps make your everyday lifestyle feel fancy.
Who said that nice jewelry was only for special occasions? Sometimes it’s just the act of putting on a cute pair of statement earrings or looking at your ring sparkle as you type, but I think wearing jewelry and accessorizing can make a big difference in feeling put together and fancy.
11. Do Your Hair and Make Up
Are you going anywhere? Maybe, maybe not. There’s just something about looking nice and dressing up that makes you feel fancy and confident.
12. Take a Bath
While it may sound super simple, taking a bath is a great way to make your everyday lifestyle feel fancy. The hot water soothes and relaxes your muscles and you can use your soaking time just breathe, have a glass of wine, watch TV, do a face mask, or read a book! Plus, once you add in bath salts, bubble bath, or a bath bomb (or any combination of the three!) it really does feel luxurious.
These are some ways that I treat myself. What other tips and tricks do you have that make your everyday lifestyle feel fancy?
