Staying Sane in Isolation
It’s now been – ahem – a while since Boris announced the country-wide lockdown, with the entire of the U.K.’s non-essential workforce suddenly working from home full time.   After the initial giddiness at the prospect of an extra half an hour in bed, not having to battle the rush hour Northern Line twice a day, and a new work wardrobe comprising mainly loungewear and sliders, the reality of the situation settled in.

Fashion Week and It’s Lockdown…
While we all thought we’d soon be planning our Summer wardrobe and adding those holiday buys to our basket, I think we can all agree that life doesn’t half surprise you. If you’d have told me at the beginning of the year that I would be spending the first bank holiday of the decade in PJ’s, cradling a bottle of wine in front of Disney+, I never would have believed you... yet here we are.

The Importance of UV in Skincare and Beauty

Quite simply, protecting yourself from Ultraviolet Rays is single handily the most important thing you can do for your skin. SPF is the cheapest cosmetic surgeon around! If you are not using SPF, then the rest of your skincare is deemed pointless. Prevention is key here!  So what is UV? The sun naturally emits UV radiation, while sunbeds give out artificial UV. Both forms are incredibly damaging to your skin so protection is vital. ...

How To Host a Virtual Wine Tasting Event

Live digital communication has never been so hot right now- and the best thing is, we’re finding that it’s been used to stream just about every event imaginable. What started out as online workouts or business meetings has now spread globally to cover live cooking demonstrations, beauty masterclasses, reiki and energy healing, and even live ‘how to cut your own fringe’ streams!   The beauty of virtual events is that you can use everything from Facebook Live or Facetime, Instagram Live to Zoom, to watch live content. ...

A Minimal, Vegan Haircare Routine

Frizziness has always been the bane of my life and up until recently, I didn’t do a great deal about it. I have always used oils, but never spent the time to properly research what is best for me and my hair. I accepted fate and that there was no product on this planet had the capacity to fully tame my super thick, crazy hair. What inspired my need for change? A spontaneous one way flight ticket to France the following month. I decided to travel for the foreseeable future and knew that I wanted (and needed) to minimise my hair care routine to a few vegan products that I truly loved and trusted. Natural ingredients were...

How Reading Can Help You Find Solace During Anxious Times

There is no point understating the effects that this global pandemic has had on our mental health—we’re all anxious, uncertain and overwhelmed. As someone who suffers from general anxiety for a majority of the time anyway, I’ve had to lean on a few techniques to help me navigate the discomfort of social distancing and isolation.

The Curly Hair Products You Need In Your Life

These are the best products that I have tried, and trust me, I own half of Boots.   I have an extreme love-hate relationship with my hair. As anyone with curly, coily and frizzy hair knows, no hair days are the same. One day my curls can bounce beautifully around my face, the next day, my curls can spiral in seven different directions, resulting in a flat mess. So, if anyone knows how to tame some curly locks, it’s us curly girls. ...

Are You Ready for a New Normal?

Self-care and kindness have become increasingly big topics in recent years. We welcomed the mindfulness movement as it saturated our overworked brains with tools and techniques to help calm our frantic lives. We couldn’t keep up, and we didn’t know how to slow down. But despite the much-needed advice, were we really listening? Something tells me we perhaps weren’t. We were then given no choice, as our once normal lives crashed into a universal road block.  ...

5 Amazing Vegan and Cruelty Free Nail Brands

A couple of years ago, it would have been a little difficult to put this round-up together. There would have been around 3-4 key brands that jumped out when it came to selecting quality vegan nail polish brands, involving a lot of scratching around on the internet.  But today, the hardest part was whittling down the super long list. It was pretty easy to find quality vegan nail polish brands that don’t test on animals, giving us a huge hotlist to cut right down.  ...

Equal Pay Day: How To Move On If Your Pay Rise is Refused

As Equal Pay Day is coming up on April 15th, it’s time to discuss a topic that many people struggle with: having the confidence to ask for a pay rise.  Let’s face it, asking for a rise isn’t an easy thing to prepare for. For most of us, it makes us feel awkward and scared. It’s a daunting task, almost like selling ourselves to those in superior positions. Putting ourselves on pedestals and having a strong backup case to support what we’re trying to put forward. ...

Self-Care and Immunity on Lockdown

For beauty lovers internationally. On lockdown and in the confines of our own homes, our most-loved beauty and self-care secrets have been compromised and our go-to pick-me-ups are, for now, out the window. Across all nations, people are experiencing sickness and so right now, the notion of beauty may be of a lower priority than usual. For those of us recovering from milder symptoms, feeling the FOMO, anxiety or simply just locked inside for safe measures, we are hoping this soon will be a distant memory. In this time, it's important to remember the healing powers we can unlock by optimising our inner and outer mental health and immunity....

However, there’s always something positive in each negative situation, so here are 5 reasons why we should not hate Monday and start embracing it!...

Be Your Own Hype Man

I think we can happily say that the discussion of Mental Health is more encouraged and widely spread than around 10+ years ago. A large part of promoting a positive mindset, whether it be for yourself or others, is to surround yourself with kind, likeminded people in times of need.  Some may favour chanting ‘love yourself’ like a mantra, as unfortunately we often have to be reminded to do so. ...

5 WFH Lunch Ideas to Boost Food Inspiration

Af you’re anything like me, you’ll be getting bored of your daily work-from-home lunch by now. I mean, I’ve never been one to buy the most exciting lunches, or rustle up something ‘wow’ during the week, but it was nice to be able to switch it up a little and visit bakeries or those city centre lunch spots when I wanted to!  If you’re stuck for inspiration outside of your basic salad or sandwich, then look no further - I’ve been researching some ways to mix up that midday meal.  The below recipes are super easy and quick to make at home! This way, you can throw a plate together when you have a few minutes spare, either in the morning before you head off to work (if you’re still going to the office), or at...

Around the World in 6 Fine-Wine Experiences

If you’re anything like me, you are both a travel and wine enthusiast, and I enjoy combining the two as much as possible. I am a sucker for a good wine tour, a great wine bar and I always try, if possible to enjoy, for better or worse, trying out locally produced wines everywhere I visit.  Over the past seven years, I have spent time exploring the world, city by city, drinking in both the culture, and the wine, learning as much as I can about both. To prevent you from bad wine and making a ‘pour’ decision - because no one got time for that, I have compiled below 6 of my favourite wine experiences from around...
