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.

12 things I love about Autumn

As much as I am, and always will be, a summer girl at heart I do like to try and embrace each season as they come! I think every season holds it’s own special piece of magic to it. I have created a list of my favourite things about Autumn, see if you agree with them? Hopefully, this post will get you in the mood and excited for the Autumn months ahead!

1. Autumn Colours: The sheer beauty of the colours in nature has to be my absolute FAVOURITE thing about Autumn! The reds, oranges, golds, greens and browns all together are just magical. Let the leaf throwing photos commence!

 

2. Woodland Walks: I enjoy a woodland walk with crisp fresh air, the sunlight dappled through the trees and multicoloured leaves crunching under my feet. I like to take my camera out with me to capture the beautiful colours and if I’m lucky a scurrying woodland creature!

 

3. Pumpkins: Did someone say Pumpkin Spiced everything?! This is definitely the time of year when the world goes crazy for everything Pumpkin related especially when it comes in the form of a pumpkin spiced latte. I always enjoy going to my local pumpkin picking farms to see the massive variety they grow and of course get some photos!

 

4. Knitwear: I do love a cosy knit, preferably with some kind of woodland creature printed on the front! I usually pair mine with a skater skirt and ankle boots or my favourite skinny jeans. Perfect for snuggly days on the sofa or for keeping warm on those woodland walks.

 

5. Boots: I love my boots! They are comfy, toasty and support my poorly feet and ankles yet they always look so stylish! Whether they’re ankle or knee-high (I don’t own any thigh high!) I love wearing them with skirts/dresses, tights & leg warmers or tucked into my skinny jeans.

 

6. Autumnal Makeup: This is the time of year to put the nudes/brights to one side and add richer tones in your make up! The colours we wear in our clothing in the autumn really lend themselves to deeper lip colours and plum or copper-toned eye shadows. I really lover a berry lip. They will brighten up your face on those stark cold days.

7. TV Show Premieres: Autumn usually means the start of the new TV season and I settle down to watch a new series of my favourite shows like The Great British Bake Off and Strictly Come Dancing.

 

8. Lighting: Along with the colours at this time of year the low lighting levels make the outdoors look even more golden and beautiful, perfect for dreamy photography sessions.

 

9. Halloween: I didn’t do much for Halloween this year except burn my Halloween scented candles and watch the Strictly Come Dancing Halloween Special! However, I usually love Halloween for the pumpkin carving, spooky decorations, fancy dress and the excuse to bake sweet treats.

 

10. Baking: Due to the increase in rainy days during the Autumn I look for more indoor activities and my love of baking is reignited! There is nothing I love more than the smell of freshly baked cakes, cookies or bread in the oven and the proud feeling of “I made that!”

 

11. Candles: Whether or not you’re a candle nutcase like me this is the time of year when a lot of people will burn candles. The nights are drawing in and it feels cosy to have some lovely candlelight flickering in your home. The best fragrances are available during autumn/winter too ranging from sweet and spicy pumpkin, frosted berries to those crisp and fresh outdoors scents!

 

12. Bonfire Night: Holding sparklers in your gloved hands, the scent of toffee apples and watching multicoloured fireworks exploding in the sky – that’s bonfire night to me.
