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.

Accounts to Follow for Social Media Day

Social media can be either really great or really toxic, depending on how you use it. It can be a great way of keeping up with celebrity’s, following the latest trends, connect with people globally and keeping in touch with friends who we are currently, unable to see.  

However, social media is knowto have damaging effects on some peoples’ mental health. If you are seeing what your friends are doing every day on social media, it can cause you to forget to check in on them and see how they are actually doing – all because assumed they were fine from what you have seen on InstagramFollowing the rise in the influencer industryhaving gorgeous individuals everywhere you look on Instagram, can often cause issues with self-esteem. It can create doubt in your mind about things in your personal life.  

What you must remember is that Instagram is a highlight reel, people showing off all the best bits of their lives. That’s what social media is about, sharing moments with people who are interested, connecting with others, learning, creating; there are so many opportunities in social media, you just have to protect yourself when using it.  

Influencers and celebrities will also have down days and personal insecurities, but some may simply choose not to show them. If someone makes you feel awful about yourself then unfollow them. This is the easiest way to protect yourself and control your anxieties going crazy with self-doubt. If you feel bad about unfollowing someone or just want to see less of them, then you can always mute their account. 

I want to share some of my favourite people to follow on Instagram; some of the many accounts that use this platform to share positivity and empower others: 

@lucygann – the editing and filters she uses on her photos are to die for and she always accompanies her photos with a meaningful caption, which is always lovely to take a moment to stop and read. 
@thegoodquote – the username speaks for itself! This is another page that is all about inspirational quotes and advice. You best believe I have almost every single post saved or screenshotted! Great for when you need a little pick me up.  
@aliceoliviac – she is the true minimalist style queen! Her pictures and outfits are always incredible and give so much inspiration our lockdown fits! 
@themantraco – not everything on instagram is fashion/blogger orientated. This account is great to follow for some feel good, motivational quotes and also some really relatable horoscope posts – if you’re into that kind of thing!  
@inthefrow – one of the first influencers to establish themselves in the industry, this multi awardwinning fashion blogger gives all the luxe inspiration, alongside the newest designer must haves and how to dress so elegantly. She’s definitely worth a follow!
