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.

4 Little Acts of Kindness to Brighten A Stranger’s Day

Let’s face it, the world can be a horrible place – if it’s not the state of world politics, it’s climate change, natural disasters or the dregs of the past dragging us down. Social media has a way of making us feel isolated even if we’re connected 24/7. So, for this years National Random Acts of Kindness Day, join us in making a difference. Here are five little acts of kindness you can do to brighten a stranger’s day… in real life.

Compliment Someone

How good does it feel to be complimented? Someone saying something nice about you can really brighten or make your day. If you regularly travel on public transport to work why not compliment someone’s outfit, makeup or simply say “You look great today” or “I hope you have a great day”. Words have power, use them wisely.

Pay It Forward

Ever heard of the phrase “do good for others and good will come back to you”?

Paying it forward can be as simple and inexpensive as buying the next person’s coffee on your next visit to Pret. Or if you’re feeling particularly generous you can pay for someone’s meal on your next restaurant visit. 

The same goes for buying coffee or a hot meal for someone you see sleeping rough. It can make all the difference to their day.

Talk

We spend so much time tapping on our phones, tapping at a keyboard or staring at a screen watching Netflix. The real-life conversation is replaced by instant messaging and frankly when was the last time you spoke to a stranger without asking for directions?

It may sound odd but why not strike up a conversation with someone, it doesn’t have to lead anywhere but human contact and being social is important for our wellbeing. Some helpful starters:

–   “How is your day?”

–   “The weather is nice, isn’t it?”

Smile

Smiling is free. Just don’t be creepy and start smiling like The Joker.

I have been in and out the Bloggersphere since the days of LiveJournal and when Tumblr was the originally ‘cool’ blogging platform. Over the years, this industry has changed so much, I do question if I am actually part of it or if I’m on the outskirts looking in. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flat lay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced makeup. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
