Leap Day: Try Something New

There is something very special about today, as it only happens once every four years and that is because it’s a leap year.  The history about this extra day in February goes back hundreds of years and has to do with the Earth’s orbit around the Sun as once every four years it takes 366 days instead of the usual 365.  There is also the tradition in the UK that on this day that Women may propose marriage to their loved one on this day.

I think this is a perfect day to try something new, you could go for a walk and discover a new part of your town or city, try a new type of food or cuisine, have a duvet day and take some “me” time or go for my choice and try a new beauty product.

If you are going for my choice but maybe you don’t have any new products at home then I would suggest taking a look at QVCUK’s website as they have a 24hr event where everything is on four easy payments, giving you the chance to try something new.  Below is a selection of some of my choices.
