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.

Get Laughing for World Laughter Day

I am convinced that there is no better feeling than laughing until your tummy hurts. Laughing releases endorphins, which is the bodies way of saying “this feels good.” As amazing as having a good laugh with your friends and family feels, there’s more to it than just chuckling to a point of pleasant pain…  

Humour lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, creates beautiful memories and eases anger and bad energy. 

Here’s some pretty cool benefits and facts about laughing in honour of World Laughter Day: 

  • Laughter can help relax the body… Yep sounds crazy but it’s true, it eases your mind of worries, but also helps relieve physical tension too. Quick yoga. 
  • Laughter helps you live longer 👀 A study in Norway showed results that people with a stronger sense of humour tend to live longer than their more regular peers! That’s definitely something to laugh about. 
  • Mental Refresh, nothing centres you more than laughing, it’s like pressing a little reset button that helps you focus again. Next time you’re sick or staring at your laptop and can’t seem to get any work done, reach out to the person who always seems to make you giggle and take a moment to refresh your mind with their humorous presence! 
  • Laughing makes you more attractive and not just to the opposite gender but to everyone. There’s no one that doesn’t appreciate a beautiful laugh or good sense of humour. Just make sure you know when to be funny and when not otherwise you might end up coming across as rude!  

The benefits to laughter are truly many. I could sit here and list them to you, but I’d prefer to tell you to enjoy your day, reach out to your funny friend or perhaps be the funny friend to someone who might just need it. Smiling is the 2nd best thing to laughter so even if you can get a smile out of someone today it will be enough to be proud of! With everything going on in the current climate, appreciating the little things in life will help us get through. 

 Happy World Laughter Day 💗
