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.

Be Mindful of National Garden Meditation Day

Walk into your garden. Take a seat and take a deep breath; as National Garden Meditation Day is the perfect time for a refreshing, well overdue, mental reboot. We’re a few months into self-isolation, so what better time to start your mindfulness journey than now. 

Being around flourishing nature and in the fresh crisp air can make each breath through meditation so much purer and more relaxing. Everything feels so much clearer being out in refreshing air – it’s the perfect way to clear your mind of any negative thoughts. 

Meditation? But isn’t that just some silly thing hippies do? Absolutely not. Adding meditation to your morning routine has been scientifically proven to change your life. Yes seriously! As someone who used to think it was all bogus, I cannot stress enough the positive impact meditation has had on me.  Exploring this annual day could be the start of your mindful journey! 

Surrounding yourself with nature is proven to help relax our minds, so where better to meditate than in our gardens? Being in a safe and private space will help you unravel your thoughts and reconnect with your inner self. Meditating allows us to observe our thinking/thought process, completely unwind and take control of our mindwhich as we all know can be a busy place sometimes. Let’s think of it like this, you wouldn’t leave the house without brushing your teeth so why would you leave the house with an unclean mind ready to take on the day?  

Meditation allows us to be more mindful and present during our day. Having the ability to be fully present in any moment relieves us off any stress or sadness, whilst also increasing our focus. It allows us to take a step out of the constant stream of thinking. Its also incredibly useful for anyone struggling with mental illness, as it allows you to stop overthinking and take control of your thoughts!   

Rochelle Fox, a meditation teacher and influencer has her own kind of affirmation… ‘Don’t be your brains bitch’ teaches us to be in control of our mind, as we create our own reality through our perception. 

It’s time to be the one in power of your thoughts, listen to Rochelle, you are not your brains bitch! 

It’s time that we all start living and being more present in each moment.  

So, are you going to use this National Garden Meditation Day to become the best version of yourself? I mean, there really is no better time than now, to consider what you can do for your mental wellbeing. All you really need is your garden or a open space (with no one around) to explore…
