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.

Why You Need To Get Over It

March 9th is National Get Over It day and whilst the sentiment may sound rather blasé, perhaps there are some things on your mind that are getting in your way… If so, read on.

What is it?

Most of our problems stem from different areas of our lives: work, relationships, friendships, self image and so on. What one needs to do is assess the ‘it’ and if it is worth fighting for. Fallen out with a friend? Make up. Or maybe it signifies the end. Is it time to get closure and move on? The same may go for a relationship you haven’t quite got over. The other person may have moved on, but have you? Assess the feelings, find a focus and start the healing process.

Social Media

Social media sometimes feels like the digital elephant in the room. How many of our problems and issues stem from social media? If it’s not the pressures of image from Instagram, it’s the milestones on Facebook making us feel less that. That’s why here at Cohorted, we implore you to get over it. No one cares as much as you. Didn’t get the promotion you wanted? Get over it. Find a new job, go somewhere that will treat you right. The same goes for Instagram. Jealous you’re not on that person’s trip (you know the one from high school who you never really liked anyway)? Unfollow them. Delete them. Block them. Book your own vacation and go for you.

Sometimes we like to keep things around that hurt us. We’re not sure why but sometimes it takes opening up and admitting your feelings to begin the ‘letting go’ journey.

Will this matter in the future?

At the end of the day, whatever your going through – your feelings are valid. But feelings are just that, temporary emotional states. Sometimes you need be rational and think to yourself ‘will this matter in the future?’. If it won’t matter in a week, month or five year’s time, it’s best to get over and move on. As ‘they’ say, there is no point harboring negative energy anyway.

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.
