Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

5 A/W trends you need this year

It might only be September but Autumn is fast approaching, therefore an Autumn wardrobe spruce up is well overdue. AW19* is a balance between minimalist styling, bold colour contrasts, power suits to combat boots. What will be your first buy of the season?

 

THE WORKING WOMEN

The last few years suits have seen the return of the power suit. The way you wear this trend is completely up to you. Stay stylish for work with a fitted suit and shirt or add some edge with an oversized co ord. The suit doesn’t always have to reflect the initial power suit (Thank you Yves Saint Laurent) making you feel like your about to enter a business meeting. Feel youthful, feminine and fresh by adding a blouse underneath, a crop top on weekends or even an oversized white T. Or if you are feeling more daring be seductive and show some skin shown on the Alexander McQueen. The suit can be completely versatile, dress it up and down for any occasion.

MONOCHROMATIC COLOUR CODING

A personal favourite from the AW19 trend forecast, colour blocking. Wearing an outfit in completely one colour is one way to stand out. The choice is yours, you can go for any colours – they don’t have to be the same shade! Pull on those blue trousers you bought years ago, a blue T shirt and a navy jacket. Rework whatever you have in your wardrobe to fit the new trends. This trend was popular on the AW19 catwalks as seen on Chanel, Max Mara, Missoni and Dolce and Gabbana to name a few.

LAYERING

A reoccurring trend from AW18 is back – layering. Everyone in England is of course happy as we all don’t have a choice but to layer anyway in the winter weather. At least we can layer, be warm and look on trend. Have a look in your summer wardrobe and drag out your pleated midi skirt or your satin dress from SS19*. Grab an oversized, turtle neck jumper and add it on top. Pair with your favourite boots and if it is really cold, add your oversized fur coat – easy. You are warm, cosy, fashionable and on trend.

MINIMALIST CHIC

Again, minimal colours are in, paired with youthful tailoring. A camel trench is an essential staple for the minimalist trend, add with a cream jumper, beige tailored wide leg trousers and black leather boots. An easy trend to follow if you love minimal styling and want to create an effortlessly cool look. The minimalist styling is perfect no matter the occasion; family meal, drinks with the girls, a first date or a day in the office. Versatile sophisticated styling every women needs to follow. To shop the minimalist style for an affordable price Zara and H&M are ‘go to’ on the high street.

CHUNKY BOOTS

A new trend this season, the chunky boot is back, as seen on Prada, Bottega Veneta to Polo Ralph Lauren. A boot considered a niche is now popular for the masses. Pair your black chunky boot with a pleated midi skirt and satin cammi top for a juxtaposed feminine look or add with jeans and patent leather trench to create an autumn edge. A super comfortable boot which can be styled as you please for whatever occasion. Maybe it is time to put the chunky trainer down and make way for the chunky boot this season …
