Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

What to wear: when you have nothing to wear

We’ve all been through those “I have nothing to wear” or “I can’t find anything” phases before an upcoming plan. I mean, how stressful is it?

Everyone’s got to that stage where our thumbs physically ache from the endless scrolling through online shopping looking for blazers, crop tops, trousers, accessories and god knows what else. From being a fashion fanatic, looking for outfits is my speciality, so I’d love to share my tips and tricks to avoid hours of searching for your perfect outfit.  

FIND INSPIRATION ON SOCIALS

The first place I start to look for inspiration is social media. This is a personal preference of mine, as I love getting ideas from influencers and am an active user of Instagram, the main hotspot for fast fashion! (Although some days I totally wish I could live without it).

I’ll have a stalk a few of my favourite influencers and then when I feel as though I have a vague vision of certain items I’d like to transform into a look, I do it. But the Instagram scene isn’t for everyone, right? An alternative to this first step is YouTube. Clothes hauls are amazing and informing as they give an honest review (most of the time) and it is easy to gather an idea as to what certain items look like on. Pinterest is the next best place to find inspiration. Not just outfits – everything! 

RELIABLE FASHION RETAILERS

The second step I would suggest is to pick reliable fashion retailers you know you can trust. There is nothing worse than it being a couple days untill a night out or a nice meal and the last-minute top you ordered is poor quality, or the trousers you ordered in your usual size are too small. There is a lot of trial and error in this, to figure out what brands work best for you. Everyone will have a personal favourite, I tend to stick to PrettyLittleThing or Missguided as I know these websites are true to my size, their delivery is reliable, and the refund system is incredibly easy.  

TRENDS

Another great place to start is by researching current fashion trends. What I like to do is to pick a recent trend and shop around this – a lot of online fashion retailers have categories on their websites for this. For example, if I knew I wanted a ‘milkmaid’ style dress or top after seeing their popularity on Instagram, I would go on their separate heading under “trends” and I could see everything that is in that style.  It makes shopping and outfit planning super easy! 

WISH LISTS

Everyone loves saving time, right? Have you ever found something that you weren’t too sure on yet and then when you go back to find it because you’ve finally made your mind up, it can take ages… Instead of this, just add it to a wish list! These are great as whilst you build them up, you can then look back next time, which can give you loads of inspiration. My PrettyLittleThing wish list is endless! But this means that if your constantly sat around waiting for your next payday like I am, all the items you liked from a few weeks ago are still there. 

I hope in a way this breaks down tips to make finding an outfit less stressful, even though I don’t think it will ever be completely stress free… Happy shopping!
