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
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.

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.

Weleda Skin Food 

I use this in so many ways and will simply never be without it. As you can see it’s well-loved! This herbal scentedointment like thick cream is a saviour for dry depleted skinsbringing life back into your face. It can be used as a primer, highlighter, eyelid sheen, brow tamer, lip balm, cleanser and my favourite, a foot and hand cream – the list goes on! It is on the heavy side but only a dab is needed and oh boy does it nourish and soothe. A little tip, warm between your fingertips first before applying. This is a must-have and one of those products I would want if stranded on a desert island. It’s available at Look Fantastic and most beauty retailers from £7.95. 

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse 

This oil is summer in a bottle. Its famous scent is intoxicatingwarm and slightly sweetyet subtle at the same timeI just love the smell of this, I could literally bathe in it! It’s a dry oil that can be used as a body moisturiserperfect for adding a slight sheen to your collarbones and chest area. It’s also wonderful as hair oil, just coat your ends in this and wrap up in a towel. Upon release, I can bet your tresses will look shinier, swisher and silkier! For an understated scent, I sometimes wear this alone instead of perfume. This can be purchased from many beauty retailers such as Cult Beauty from £18.50. 

Ilia Color Haze Multi-Matte Pigment 

This brand has taken over my makeup bag! Natural makeup made easy. This creamy formula works brilliantly as a cheek and lip tint, it’s an absolute staple. Only a tiny bit is needed to perk up your skin as it is pigmentedas the name would suggest! I love the cool metal applicator, which allows for easy and controlled applicationsIt’s a worthy investment, lasts well on the skin and the intensity can be built up easily.

This can be used as a body moisturiser, to calm razor burn, as a face cream after treatment or if you’re suffering from imbalanceIf it’s good enough for Elle Mcpherson, then it’s good enough for me! It’s a favourite behind the scenes at fashion shows, where it’s used as an allover multipurpose ointment and as a burns treatment. I’ve also heard it’s fantastic at treating hyperpigmentation, helping to fade those pesky scars left behind after a spot has exited the building. This is one you want in your stash and it can usually be found on Amazon for around £10.  

Heritage Store Rose and Glycerin Spray 

This is an inexpensive, highly moisturising, water-based mist that can only be best described as a liquid comfort blanket on your skin. It hydrates beautifullyrefreshes and soothes.
