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.

Three Ethical Fashion Brands to Check Out this Autumn

Hands up who’s ready for cosy nights in with a hot chocolate and Sunday night Harry Potter? It’s time to dust off your coats and bring back out the scarves and gloves. Halloween and bonfire night are over, and Christmas is on the way.

With the start of each season, I invest in a few key pieces from ethical brands that I know will last for years to come. I no longer buy into fast fashion trends, opting instead to pick out clothing that will go with anything and everything. I still have vintage tops and dresses that I’ve been wearing for well over ten years!

 

Boden

Using ethically made and responsibly sourced materials, Boden focuses on full transparency of their supply chain and works closely with suppliers, building long-term relationships. With brightly coloured detailing and flattering styles, a brand is a great option for a seasonal wardrobe overhaul.

People Tree

People Tree have been a favourite brand of mine for years, particularly for their organic cotton basics and knitwear. Supporting businesses that use traditional skills such as hand weaving, hand knitting or hand embroidery, People Tree create employment in rural areas where work is often scarce. All clothing is dyed using low impact dyes, free from harmful azo chemicals which are frequently used in clothing manufacture.

Will’s Vegan Shoes

Will’s Vegan Shoes use vegan leather created with bio oil sourced from organic cereal crops grown in Northern Europe. All the materials used in deliveries are environmentally friendly, sustainable, can be recycled and are free of plastic packaging. Through investing in renewable energy projects such as wind, hydro, geothermal, solar and biomass, Will’s Vegan Shoes offset their carbon emissions to zero. I wore a pair of their sandals all throughout my holiday to Croatia, the quality of which far surpassed any leather sandals that I’ve owned before. My feet have never been comfier!
