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.

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.
