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.

New Year’s Resolutions: 2 Months In

It’s the second month into the year. It might be chilly, but the evenings are getting ever so longer and Spring is officially on its way. But today, we’re addressing the elephant in the room (or the mouse, depending on your guilt levels right now…). It’s time to talk about New Year Resolutions…

Veganuary came and went. I for one, knew that giving up my milky tea was a tad too far, so opted for Veguary instead. 2 months in and… I’ve actually stuck to it! However, I do know many who haven’t.. But thats ok?

We put far too much pressure on ourselves, on keeping in line with these idealistic rules, so here are some little things to do, to help get back on track, with half the agg.


Buy a promotional gym pass, or one of those “try us before you buy us” passes. This is the best way to approach the gym, if you don’t trust yourself. You’ll save a lot of money before you decide to buy a year-long gym membership and you might actually find your groove. If gyms are not your thing, grab a hula-hoop, pop on some ABBA and channel your inner dancing queen. Sometimes exercise in the comfort of your own home works better, so let loose and have fun. It works wonders. Trust me.


To cut down on my meat consumption, I went cold turkey on January 1st (pardon the pun…). I want to focus on cutting meat out my meals once or twice a week, to ease myself into it. Try a stuffed mushroom instead of a heavy steak, it’s easier and yummier than you think. Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to approach a vegan/meat-free lifestyle, every little helps.


Another one of my main ambitions for the new year. With the January slump well and truly out the way, I can begin to focus my time on getting the job I really want. I gave up within the first week of the year, but now, I’m more ready than ever. I’m definitely ready to move on, and up, now – all it took was a little time.

Everyone slips up and resolutions (more often that not) are broken before they’ve even begun. BUT, it’s a new century and it really can be a new you. Take some time for yourself to outline some simple goals for 2020.
