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 Steps to Happiness

S
ometimes life can be so stressful and complicated due to multiple different reasons for instance your relationship, friendships, worry about the future, bad choices you made, etc. The list goes on! Sometimes, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel and you might be wondering if you could ever be happy.

The good news is there are a few things you can do to instantly feel happy and improve your mood on an everyday basis. But don’t forget that you have the key to your happiness and it’s all about your mindset.

  • Focus on yourself

We spend a lot of time trying to make our loved ones and people around us happy, to please them with our accomplishments, our work and actions leading us to often forget to focus on ourselves in the first place.

At the end of the day, it’s all about your well-being and mental health. You need to prioritise yourself! Take the time to do things that make you happy and stop trying to please everyone around you. Focus on your dreams, goals, plans and passions.

 

  • Accept that you can not control everything

Accepting that some situations are out of your control will make you realised that worrying won’t help you in any shape or form. Accepting and realising that take a huge weight off your shoulders. Instead of focusing on things you can’t control for example on things you’ve done in the past or don’t have – focus on the things you have.

There are so many things to be grateful for and you’ve probably achieved so many things in life! Focus on the things that make you happy, proud and grateful.

 

  • Let your feelings out

Most of the times, the reason why we are down is because we keep lot of emotions inside us and by time, you just have all those negative feelings built up inside you. To be completely honest, it’s one of the worst things you can do.

Talking about how you feel, emptying your heart out, can instantly change the way you feel. Talk to someone you trust for instance a family member or friend. If you do not have anyone to talk to, write. Take a notebook and write down everything you feel or start journaling. Write everything you would like to say to a person. It will instantly relieve you!

 

  • Spend less time on social media

Social media are a great way to express and share your creativity. So many people have created businesses and careers based on those platforms but on a day-to-day basis, they don’t really have that many positive effects on people.

Using social media platforms on an everyday basis can have a negative impact on yourself. Thinking that people whom you follow have a better life, are much happier in their lives and are more successful will bring negative energy into your life thus negative feelings & emotions.

Social media is only a highlight of people’s best moments in life. They only show what they want you to see. In reality, they lead a very normal life and face the same problems as us.

 

  • Get away from negative energy

We all have people around us who are full of negative energy. They are always constantly feeling negative to the point it becomes unbearable. But you have to understand that you aren’t obliged to accept their negative thoughts or even themselves into your life. What matters the most is your happiness is and that should be your priority.

If there are people in your life who are not there for you when you need and do not make you happy or feel loved, then do not feel guilty about getting away from them. You don’t need these types of people in your life.
