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.

Celery Juice: Worth the hype?

The celery juice craze started last year and certainly seems to be here to stay – I gave the two week challenge a go and on day 14 I have to admit, I have no plans to stop.

The Medical Medium, who you can find full of information and tips on Instagram, says celery juice is so powerful it strengthens your immune system and fights off viruses. I wasn’t really convinced, but with all this positivity surrounding something so simple, I had to give it a go.

I’m not the biggest fan of the taste and so was REALLY hoping I wouldn’t see a difference – but I have seen such huge changes in my skin and the way I feel. So much so, that I’m going to continue drinking it every day.

Advising you to take it in the morning before consuming anything else – you simply chop the celery and juice / blend it. If you only have a blender (like me) be sure to strain it so it’s smooth.

I tend to chop it a day or two in advance, and blend / strain it the night before so it can chill – this makes the taste a little more bearable in the morning.

Drinking it every morning for two weeks, I feel my skin is less grey and has a little more of a glow to it. I don’t feel as tired and the bags around my eyes seem to have become smaller, which is a huge thing for me.

The Medical Medium advises that celery juice flushes out bad toxins and cleans up ‘the mess’ inside your body. After a few wild weekends over Christmas and a fairly damp January, this was one of the main reasons for giving it a try and I do feel it has helped my body recover.

I also usually suffer with serious bloating issues and tummy pains – but since drinking this, my gut has felt 100% better and I’ve had no problems with it. I honestly think that it has cleaned me out and I feel so much fresher for it.

So when its benefits are this good, what are the downsides?

The only thing for me is you really do have to stock up on celery – but at 50p a batch at Aldi (70p if I pop into Booths and buy it near work), it’s not too pricey. The usual recommendation is one full pack should be blended for each day; I tend to stretch mine over two and sometimes add a little water (this also helps with blending).

It’s also tricky to remember to do it the night before, and if you don’t, the thought of getting out of bed in the morning to chop, blend and civ some celery, instead of having a nice warm cup of tea, is pretty excruciating. But I am a little dramatic.
