Just 12 cute, comforting things we're treating ourselves to in self-isolation.

As we’re all adjusting to our new normal with different daily routines during self-isolation, many of life’s little luxuries are no longer possible.

Things like getting our nails done or spending hours trying on clothes are on hold, at least for the time being.

And while none of us are spending on a big scale right now, it’s still important to find ways to treat ourselves, because those small pick-me-ups can help make this strange time that much more enjoyable.

Here’s what the Mamamia team have been ordering online this week (excuse us while we sit patiently by our front doors.)

“After seeing these sheepskin slippers on Instagram, my credit card was out and ready. They are by far the comfiest shoes I now own and my feet are obsessed. They come in so many colours so I will probably be buying more. But a word of warning: they run small so I’d suggest sizing up.” – Charlie.

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, $64.

“It’s the only face oil I’ve ever used that sinks in almost straight away and I wake up with the softest skin! I have oily skin so was kind of hesitant to use an oil but this one has helped balance my skin out. Absolutely love it.” – Caitlin.

"These are some of the best quality trackpants I've ever owned. They have a beautiful fleece lining inside to keep you warm and apparently the cut makes your leggings look longer. #Winning." - Charlotte.

"I'm obsessed with this jumper, I wore it three days in a row. It's lovely and fleecy on the inside, and so soft on the outside. It feels a little bit retro too which I love." - Lily.

"All the Palm Beach candles smell amazing but my current favourite is the 'Wellness' one. It's scented with rosewood, gardenia and musk, and I hope by burning it, I am becoming just that little bit more zen. (I'm not, but at least it makes my work area smell fancy.)" - Amy.

Reliquia Jewellery  Top That! Gold Hoop Earrings, $119.

"Gin is my favourite liquor and I'm enjoying making a lovely G&T in a fancy glass at home on the weekends - which may or may not also include Thursdays now. I like to support Aussie gin makers, my go-to drops are Poor Tom's, Four Pillars and Adelaide Hills Distillery 78 Degrees." - Amy.

"After seeing these pink shampoo and conditioner bottles precisely EVERYWHERE over the last few weeks, I drove to a Coles for my weekly shop and picked up a set. I've only used the sulphate, silicone and SLS-free products twice but so far, I'm really impressed with the results. I even forced my partner to stroke my hair to validate how soft it felt." - Amy.

"I have a silk pillowcase from this brand and swear by it for a good night's sleep, so when I saw their eye masks I knew I needed one. With my star sign embossed on it. Because how bloody fancy is that?" - Tamara.
