The weather's abysmal, your bank balance is emptier than Joey Essex's train of thought and you're most likely on a 'life-enhancing' detox comprised of wheatgrass juices in unappetising green hues. It's official: January is crap and don't let the optimist movement try and convince you otherwise. The best way to overcome the back to school blues? My seasonal formula comprises of trash TV (Celebrity Big Brother, you got me) cosy nights in, stodgy comfort food and the odd self-purchase. Of course there's still the issue of finances (or lack of) so I have put together my edit of 15 mood-enhancing buys, all £30 and under:
