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.

Don’t Put Yourself On Hold

When the odds are against you and you feel as though you’re not getting anywhere any time soon, don’t give up. This is a great time for growth, we just have to build a bit of courage and break through the barriers. This has been an incredibly hard time for us all. We’ve all had different coping mechanisms to deal with this (some much better than others but either way, we’re in it together) but with that being said, we’ve got through the worst of it. We can continue to move forward.  

During this pandemic, it is important that we are not losing ourselves in the midst of the madness. We need to use this as an opportunity to put our best foot forward so that when we start the ‘new normal’, we’re ready to hit the ground and start running at a steady pace 

It is imperative to your future self that you stick to a routine. If you have lost yours, then slowly try and build it back up. Having a dramatic change can have a negative impact on your mentality and can be physically exhausting. Make sure you’re setting your alarm as usual, schedule eating times, get changed and do things as you usually would. It’s impossible to make judgements on the next steps but having a routine in place will make it easier to adapt to the next stage.  

Stay healthy by eating regular nutritious meals, working out however works for you and making most of your time outside. Long walks are extremely effective for our fitness levels and mental health, so ensure that you are getting some fresh air and Vitamin D in order to avoid exhaustion and a major slump each day. 

Reflect and re-evaluate on what you really want for your future. We’ve had a considerable amount of time to gather our thoughts recently. It’s probably not the first thing you’d think to dobut considering we’re heading back to a ‘new normal’ we might as well take advantage of the opportunities that will arise.  

Be generous to yourself, rest when you need to and do all of the things that make you happy. It’s time that we are putting ourselves first and are focusing on our wellbeing during this uncertain time.  

Don’t stop making plans and aiming for your goals. It seems impossible right now, but it’s not! There are still plenty of opportunities for you to achieve your goals, but always ensure that you are putting yourself and your future first. It won’t be long until this is in the past and our lives will have returned to normal.  

We can either choose to view this as a negative experience, or we can say ‘the Covid-19 pandemic is where I put myself first and started to make life happen’.  

Don’t put yourself on hold.
