Five ways to add instant luxury to your life

After a long, cold winter, it’s time to introduce some of the finer things into your life – without spending a fortune. Here are our five favourite swanky treats.

Even if it feels like months since you’ve had a treat, and your budget is too tight too indulge, you can still bring a little everyday luxury to your life with these easy tips.

Treat your home to fresh flowers

You don’t need to spend a fortune – look out for end-of-the-day bargains from a street seller or supermarket, buy as many as you can afford without feeling guilty, then go home and arrange them prettily between vases, jam jars or kilner jars. It will add instant boutique-hotel chic to your home, and should last for days.

Wash your clothes in gold

If it was good enough for Cleopatra… Okay, we’re not talking about actual 24ct gold. But Bold 2in1 Silk Flower and Gold Freesia infuses your clothes with a rich, positively regal aroma of Silk Tree Flower, Gold Freesia and a delicate touch of almond milk. Created by Lenor’s perfume experts and widely available for the first time, it will leave your clothes feeling luxuriously soft, pristinely clean and deliciously scented.

Grate real chocolate on your hot drinks

Hot chocolate and coffee may be your daily winter go-to warmers, but that doesn’t mean they have to feel routine. Keep some good quality chocolate in the cupboard (hidden well away from greedy childish fingers!), and when you indulge in an evening cocoa, latte or hot chocolate, grate a sprinkling on top.

Wear posh underwear, just because…

There’s no doubt about it, wearing your softest, laciest lingerie can make you feel on top of the world – especially compared with those daily cotton numbers. If your nicest set ends up in the back of the underwear drawer waiting for the right occasion, then wear it once in a while. Even if no one else knows what’s going on under your normal clothes, you will, and it will make you feel full of confidence.

Fill your fruitbowl to the brim

Five-star hotel rooms always come with a giant fruitbowl filled with succulent fruit. Buy a bowl you really love, and pack it with fruit of different colours, arranged beautifully, ready to be snacked on (pure guilt-free pleasure!). If you really want to feel treated, put a small bowl in the middle ready for berries or grapes, the most decadent fruits of all.
