Happy Birthday Pisces!
1. A Happy Playlist for a Sad Pisces
Lets be real, just because you're a Pisces doesn't mean you have a sad playlist that you constantly listen to. But in case you do, I just want you to know this is a judgement free zone! Coming from the Virgo who's writing this, Pisces have the skill of really feeling all of their feels, something most of us struggle with. With that being said, if you want to cry your heart out listening to sad music, do that! But, might I suggest a happy playlist, when you're ready, to listen to instead once in a while?
If you still want to listen to sad songs, might I suggest, "The End of The World" (1962) by Skeeter Davis, on repeat? That's what I do anyway...
2. Relaxing Products
While you're listening to the playlist, how does a snack infused with CBD sound?
CBD has been trending all over the Beauty, Health and Wellness, Food industry, and more in recent years. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is an active ingredient in the cannabis (marijuana) plant. CBD is used in medical marijuana, but CBD itself does not make you "high" like marijuana. CBD comes directly from the Hemp plant, "a cousin of the marijuana plant".
CBD comes in the form of oils, gummies, lotions, and so much more.
The Benefits of CBD:
For more information about CBD, refer to this blog from Harvard Medical School.
Now that you know a little about CBD, here are some cool products!

3. Home, Bath, and Beauty
Is it a self-care day if you didn't put on a sheet mask? I don't know. Either way, here are some self-care essentials to complete this package.
An Essential Oil Diffuser
Diffusers are great because they come in all shapes and sizes for different room sizes, some change colors like this one does, and you can choose whatever essential oil you like to put in them. My favorites are, Lavender, Orange, and Clary Sage, which smells like a clean spa.
Unfortunately, these are sold out but there is someone on TikTok who makes Froot Loop, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Lucky Charms candles.
This was named Best Face Mask from Popsugar. It comes with a solution of Hyaluronic Acid serum (very moisturizing), which you apply first, and then you put on the sheet mask. They suggest putting it the fridge before use for maximum effect, and I second that.
Gold Eye Mask
These "Baggage Claim" Gold Eye Masks from Wander Beauty, "brighten, hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark circles". Perfect after a good cry, lack of sleep, or if you're just feeling glamorous.
Bath Bombs and Soaks
Lush is known for their "fresh, handmade cosmetics", but their bath bombs are where they shine.
Lush's Intergalactic Bath Bomb was named Best bath bomb by Byrdie beauty (try saying that 5 times fast). Lush's bath bombs smell as good as they look, and they come in so many fun styles.
This Peachy Bath Bomb and Goddess bath bomb are just a few of the ones Lush offers.
If you're not a fan of bath bombs, Dr. Teals Epsom salt is a fan favorite not only in my family but in the beauty world in general. This stuff is relaxing, smells great, and is affordable. Put some of this in your bath and you're set.
Comes in Eucalyptus, Lavender, and more. Available on Amazon.
Alright, I've given you the tools, now go and take care of yourself! This list doesn't (and shouldn't) only apply to Pisces. If you're in need of a self-care day (or week, or month, or year), you should take it.
