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.

Where to Visit on the Norfolk Coast This Winter

Call me biased but there is nowhere else I’d rather be than the Norfolk Coast when winter rolls back around. Find me a roaring fire in a cosy pub that serves chips with garlic mayo after a brisk dog walk on shingle beach and I’m one happy girl. 

Talking of chips, my first recommendation goes out to my current hometown of Cromer for nailing it when it comes to providing the full British seaside experience. We’ve got arcades, sweet shops, cafes for a fry up or a slice of cake and a pier that has a theatre on the end.

Seal spotting at Blakeney always marks the end of autumn and the start of winter for me. At this time of year the pups have just been born and line the shores as cute mounds of white fluff. Should you not fancy the boat trip from Blakeney, you can spot them at Horsey Gap too.

If you’re planning a trip to Norfolk around Christmas time, Holkham Hall offers a variety of festive themed events, from wreath workshops to candlelit tours. Make a day of it and take a walk on Holkham Beach and stop off at The Victoria for an indulgent meal too.

For the best dog walks, head to the beach at Trimingham, Wells-next-the-sea, Brancaster or Cley. All of which keep me going back year after year. Though my all time favourite lands with Holkham Beach, said to be popular with the royals and a location of many film scenes too.

Should you be looking to stay in Norfolk, check out Congham Hall Hotel and Spa for a luxurious weekend away, The Fritton Arms for a couple of nights in a cosy pub setting or Sloe Gin Cottage in Heacham for a longer break.
