This post is in partnership with Mirum but the opinions are my own.
The holidays are a great time to show all the people in your life how important they are. We spend tons of time shopping for gifts to express to others how much they mean to us. We spend so much time and money making sure everyone else knows they matter yet we forget about ourselves. No wonder the holidays can leave you feeling depressed. Seriously, something I’ve learned over the past few years is that I’m important too.
When someone asks me what I want for the holidays I’m guilty of saying ‘nothing’. The truth is there are things I want, but I feel bad asking for them. I can’t ask for a new computer, because I feel like I’m being selfish. Rather than taking actions and thoughts for granted and feeling sorry for myself I’ve started to include myself in my holiday lists. It’s not in any way selfish because moms sometimes get taken for granted and at the end of the day if you’re not happy it’s hard to make anyone else happy. Sometimes we have to just stop and realize we are just as important as our loved ones.
Here are a few great ways you can spoil yourself this holiday season. You deserve it.
Get your hair done
I love getting my hair done! Everything from the scalp massage to getting my haircut and colored I love. Paying a professional to color your hair and a new style is a great way to treat yourself around the holiday season. Plus, it’s a nice pick me up and feel good during what can be a stressful time of year for many of us. It’s a great way to do something for yourself without feeling without breaking the bank.
Do something to your home
The holidays typically mean more visits from family and friends so why not gift yourself with a little home pick-me-up? Whether it’s purchasing a new rug for your front room, adding a pop of color with new throw pillows or just buying a few plants, there’s no better time to spruce up your home. Do it for yourself and you’ll enjoy the new look long after the holiday madness is over.
Consider purchasing a new PC
I work online and also need a reliable option for connecting with family over the holidays so now is the perfect time for me to get a computer upgrade. Sometimes you need to splurge a little on yourself. You can get a HP Laptop with Intel® Optane™ Memory on QVC! This computer is ah-mazing! It’s 15” and it came with Microsoft Office for only $649 (Without Office it’s $599).
Intel® Optane™ Memory is an adaptable system accelerator that adjusts to my personal needs making everything I do faster, easier and smoother. Thanks to the intelligent software it automatically learns my behaviors (no idea how it does this, but it works) so it can accelerate frequent tasks. Plus, it includes Windows 10, a touchscreen, backlit keyboard, and 8GB RAM, and 2TB storage!
The touchscreen is awesome for looking up holiday recipes and I’m in love with the backlit keyboard, it’s super cool! It comes in handy when I’m in the kitchen because the light isn’t always great because I have no darn windows in the kitchen. I know, who builds a house and doesn’t put a window in the kitchen?!
Oh, and the 2TB storage is one of my favorite features. I can keep as many pictures and videos of my kids as I want without fear that I will run out of storage. I’m sure my kids aren’t going to love the idea of mom following them around with the camera snapping photos and taking videos, but it’s the holiday season, I’m allowed to and they have to let me, haha!
This laptop takes responsiveness to a whole new level! From the super fast startup of this PC to searching and savings large files without any lag. Oh, and faster launching of email apps, responsive browsing, and extraordinary gaming makes this computer the one everyone in my house wants to use.
Now I can spend less time waiting for the computer to boot up and more time getting stuff accomplished!
This computer is the perfect combination of affordability, large storage capacity and high speeds acceleration. Intel ® Optane™ Memory is a game changer!

Having an HP PC with Intel® Optane™ Memory will not only make life working online faster and easier it’s something I can feel good about because it gives me more time to spend with my family. I’m able to keep in touch with family and friends, work faster and better, and keep track of my family’s schedules better. I know it doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but when you consider how many minutes you spend waiting on your computer to startup, apps to open, browsers to load and so on, it adds up fast. Plus, there is nothing wrong with spoiling yourself too!
