Hi, my name is Phoebe and I am down.
This gloomy weather and only enough light in the world… who am I kidding?! THERE IS NO LIGHT ATM. I am so over this dark winter thing that is going on at the moment! It’s really getting to me. Well it was, UNTIL YA GIRL GAVE IN AND BOUGHT A SALT LAMP. Ok bare with me.
I am such a sucker for amazon, less so that I was last year when I had a mailroom downstairs, so I guess we have that to be thankful for… Anyways, Lauryn Evarts (aka The Skinny Confidential) mentioned getting a salt lamp to get rid of seasonal depression and just like amazon, I am a sucker for TSC, anything she says, I do. So you bet your ass I gave in and bought one (and also my mum mentioned it, so I was like HELLO THIS IS A SIGN I NEED ONE!!!). This thing showed up and it was HEAVY. My friend Grace used to joke about needing one of those huge salt rocks that farmers give sheep, when we’d had too much sweet food and part of me wants to send one to her as a joke because that’s literally what this is like A HUGE ASS SALT ROCK - might still do that…
And let me tell you, there are so many more benefits than just getting rid of your moody ass.
Benefits of a Salt Lamp
Well let’s just get this out of the way, it makes you less salty. (I had to, I’m sorry). No but really, because I wasn’t so angry that I was feeling down, I just felt more fresh and happy.
You get WAY better sleep. I don’t know what it is but this baby makes me sleep like a baby, I wake up and I actually feel refreshed. I was up at 6.30… 6.45… ok, 7, I was up at 7 this morning and i was dawdling about my flat happy as could be, listening to my podcast, FOLDING MY LAUNDRY (WHO AM I?!?!?!).
It makes your room feel like a spa. I shit you not, this lamp paired with my diffuser, some lavender oil… Nights Out can kiss my ass with this setup I have going on.
Apparently, makes your air more pure, I’m not going to lie here, I can’t really tell a difference in the air. It’s London, so most of the air is pretty shit but you know if it is actually more pure more kudos to it.
All in all, I would highly rec this lamp if you’re feeling down and out because of the weather. I PROMISE you, this will help, it’s not some shitty gimmick. You can get this one off of amazon for fourteen pounds, its nothing short of a barg.
