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.

Still single? How about some self-love instead…

Sure, being in a relationship has its perks, but so does being single. Your 20’s are all about finding yourself, figuring out what you want and spreading your wings. You can unapologetically focus on you. It’s also a lot easier to love someone else when you’re confident and proud of who you are as a person.

Being single could be the best thing that’s ever happened to you.

Firstly. Put down your phone and step away from those dating apps. It’s YOU time. Self-love doesn’t have to mean doing expensive things, but if you want to start by booking a spa day somewhere then please do. After all, it is Valentines and we’re treating ourselves. We deserve this. Although I’m just as happy slathering on my favourite face mask (I recommend: Rosy Cheeks or Oatifix from Lush), lighting some candles and getting in a hot bath. During this soak you can either think about nothing at all or start making a mental list of what you want to achieve in the coming months. Aim high and be ambitious. Don’t be scared to take a risk. If not now, then when?

If you can then vividly describe and write down your goals, and put them somewhere you can be reminded of them, then science says you are 1.4 times more likely to successfully accomplish them. It’s worth a shot.

Starting a new book can be a great way to expand your mind and improve your mood. Pick up whatever book takes your fancy. A good book should be able to transport us somewhere else for a while and an even better book should inspire! Recently I’ve been enjoying a more philosophical read (Walden by Henry David Thoreau, to be exact,) which has reignited my desire to travel and explore.

If you have the opportunity to solo travel, even just for a weekend, then take it! Not only will you feel so wonderfully independent but travelling is one of the best forms of education. And when I say ‘education’ I mean in a sense of educating ourselves about, well, ourselves and life. We can learn a lot from what is unfamiliar to us. Stepping into the unknown can seem daunting but it can be when we learn the most. You might just surprise yourself by taking the leap.

While you have the spare time, why not take up a new hobby? This can be anything from going to that yoga class you always wanted to join, starting a journal or learning a new instrument- it’s never too late. Life is too short to take a backseat. Becoming a pro-active person is only going to bring good things.

Once you learn to be happy and comfortable with your own company you’ll start seeing life from a whole new, more positive perspective.

 

Happy Valentines Day to Me, from Me.
