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.

Banging Plant Based Alternatives to Try Out This Veganuary

It’s Veganuary and what better way to try the plant-based lifestyle than with these incredible Vegan alternatives!

Oatly Creamy Oat Fraiche; delicious spooned onto curries, on nachos, in soups, just about anything and everything. I stock my fridge up with six tubs at a time as they usually have generous expiry dates.

Violife Original Grated; the best melty cheese for topping jacket potatoes, adding into quesadillas or melting onto spaghetti bolognese. Equally tasty is the smoked version.

Oatly Barista; if you’re looking for a plant based milk that works well in coffee and tea, look no further. Oatly Barista works with frothers so there’s no need to give up lattes and cappuccinos.

Gardein Golden Fishless Filets; every vegan fish alternative I’ve tried up until this point has ended up straight in the bin. Believe me when I say Gardein have nailed it with these crispy, tender filets that recreate a chippy meal cooked at home.

Nutritional Yeast; a great source of B12, nutritional yeast gives a cheesy umami flavour to dishes. I use a few tablespoons worth in pasta sauces, ragu and lasagne.

Vego Hazelnut Spread; who knew Nutella has a more decedent rival that just happens to be vegan. Try this on a freshly toasted crumpet and thank me later.

Tyne Chease; by far the tastiest vegan option for a cheeseboard, Tyne Cheases are bursting with flavour and come in options such as truffle, Ethiopian spice, garlic and smoked. I finish a wheel of these off with the exact same delight that I used to feel when scoffing camembert with back in the day.

THIS Isn’t Bacon; I’ve searched high and low for the best vegan bacon and boy, oh boy, have I found it. Crispy, chewy, smoky and perfect in a white roll with a dollop of ketchup or brown sauce. I’m a big fan of the Waitrose Smoky Streaky Slices to go with cooked breakfasts too.
