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.

National Siblings Day 2020

The relationship between siblings is truly unique, something only people with siblings would understand. 
 

From the rivalry to the teamwork, siblings will have each other’s back through thick and thin.  

Unfortunately, 10th of April, aka International Siblings Day, isn’t recognized as a government holiday – so work and school will still run as per… But that doesn’t mean you can’t still ponder over the wonder of the day and send a nice message to your siblings or have a get together. 

 

The Story Behind National Siblings Day

The idea was initially conceived by Claudia Evart to honour her brother and sister who both died tragically at early ages. To further the advancement and recognition of this holiday, the Siblings Day Foundation was established in 1997. Two years later, it then became non-profit organization. 

April 10th was chosen as it was the date of Claudia’s late sister Lisette’s Birthday. The holiday has been around in the USA for quite some time now but only came to Europe and England during 2014.

Siblings Day takes its inspiration from Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The whole purpose is to appreciate, honour and celebrate the beautiful bond between siblings – a gift in itself. 

The foundation also ‘seeks to unite and reunite siblings who may have been separated by distance, by circumstance, by birth and adoption or interpersonal familial issues’. 

National Siblings Day is most commonly celebrated online and with almost everyone using social media in this day and age, nothing shouts appreciation more than a dedicated most and honourable mention to your siblings. This year on April 10th, you can get involved by using the #NationalSiblingsDay in your tributes on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. If you prefer to stick to more real interactions, you can have a lovely get together and reminisce over your childhood with your siblings: share some laughter and tears over a good meal (our favourite is Pizza!)  

However you choose to celebrate, have a good one! Siblings truly are the best of the best, a lifetime friend and someone you should always be able to lean back on. Reach out to your siblings, ask them how they are and rekindle an amazing friendship that you once shared in your childhood. 

To those of you who have lost siblings, I sincerely hope this day brings you peace when you remember the amazing souls of the ones you’ve lost. You may lose the person, but never the wonderful memories they left for you. 

Happy National Siblings Day!
