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.

A Guide to The Perfect Galentines

The perfect Galentines night in! There’s nothing better than celebrating Valentine’s with my girls, even though I’m married… Oops. It’s just the perfect excuse to get the girls together and appreciate one another. Not all my friends are in relationships, so it’s nice to distract the ones that aren’t.

This year, we’re opting for the ultimate girls night in. I’m hosting and I’m so excited, it’s going to be such a fun evening! Who said Valentine’s is just for lovers?!

Decorations will make or break a venue. For me, they are massive. I love making somewhere look extra special, cute and in theme for the relevant celebration. No one is expecting a 5* date situation, the Pound shop do the best little decorations, plates, cups and trinkets, helping to create the perfect Galentines atmosphere.

For food, I’ve planned to cook a variety of tapas style dishes, different foods that we can pick at and share between us. It makes things easier on the night and takes the stress of cooking for a group of you. Pair the tapas with lots of yummy treats and you’re well on your way! Another great idea is to suggest everyone brings a plate each and that way, you have a huge variety and the stress and costs are off you a bit.

To drink, I had to do some funky cocktails. My go-to for a homemade cocktail has to be Candy Floss, Prosecco and Gin, topped with lemonade. It’s SO good and such a fun one to make. There are so many online, homemade recipies that you can find for inspiration, or if you’re feeling super cheeky, hire a sexy bartender who will make drinks for you all night. Why not?

And what would a girls night be without a pamper? We will be getting the foot spa out, doing facemasks, nails and chilling while watching films and gossiping. This is the life.

This isn’t to say that Valentine’s will be amazing for everyone. We know that it can be a tough time of year for some people, making them feel lonely and unloved.

Don’t forget to check on those around you, the ones you love everyday of the year.

Remember, Valentine’s is only a bit of fun, don’t let it get to you.

I hope this has given you a little guide for what to do with your gal pals this Galentines! x
