Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Bingeworthy Boxsets: What to Watch and When to Watch it

If you’ve ever wasted hours scrolling Netflix for something to watch, only to be struck with FOMO and no time left to enjoy anything, worry no more. We’ve got three of our fave boxsets for you to enjoy when you need some time to kick back and put your feet up. So, whether you’re heartbroken or you’re on cloud nine after some good news, we’ve got something for you.

After a break-up

It’s never easy ending a relationship, whether by mutual agreement or a messy, angry screaming match. But there’s no greater cure for the heart than a blanket, a pint of ice cream and a Netflix binge. Grab your laptop and favourite stuffed animal and check out Netflix’s thriller series You. Based on a novel by Caroline Kepnes, You follows the story of Joe (Penn Badgley) and his unhealthy obsession with Beck (Elizabeth Lail). What starts as a somewhat cheesy love story becomes a dangerous game of cat and mouse that you’ll watch from the edge of your seat while fearing for Beck and everyone she cares about.

 

Why it’s great for post-break-up watching: You will remind that life can be better as an independent woman, and that sometimes, men really aren’t worth the drama. It’s also a great prompt to get all of your social media locked down, just in case that new ex doesn’t quite know where the boundaries are.

After a promotion

Nice work! You’ve finally locked down that hard-earned promotion you’ve been fighting for, and you want to celebrate with a glass (or bottle – we don’t judge) of wine and a good series to get stuck into. Well, you’re in luck. Check out Power on Netflix or Starz. Power shows the tale of James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) and his desperate journey to distance himself from the life of drug dealing and criminality that he once led. Filled with twists and turns to keep you gripped, there’s 5 seasons to get your teeth into, with a sixth on the way in August. So settle back, and begin to wonder just how far James will go to protect the life he’s built.

 

Why it’s great for celebrating a promotion: Not only is Power all about making moves to achieve success, there’s also some seriously powerful women to be marvelled at. Look out for Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughton) and Angela Valdes (Lela Loren), although maybe don’t follow their examples of how to achieve their goals.

Before your wedding

Hey, you’re getting married. That’s amazing! Chances are, you’re not stressed or in need of any relaxation whatsoever, because everyone knows a wedding is just a breeze to plan…No? Thought not. Take a few hours out of your crazy wedding schedule to chill out with your bridesmaids over a great series instead of agonising over centrepieces. Why not watch Don’t Tell the Bride (DTTB) on All 4, Channel 4’s catch up service. It’s a wedding series that shows what can happen if you let your man get too carried away with planning. Brides in DTTB let their partners take over and plan their weddings in just 3 weeks, with a budget of only £14,000. As you can imagine, chaos inevitably ensues, causing for some cringeworthy yet hilarious watching.

 

Why it’s perfect pre-wedding entertainment: DTTB will give you some great money-saving tips, cool quirks to consider for your own ceremony, and above all will remind you that no matter what happens, it can’t ever be as bad as when one groom made his bride get married in a bikini.
