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.

Three Staple Shoes You Need this Summer

If there is one thing that can lift any girl’s mood, it’s shoes! As Marilyn Monroe once said: Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the worldDuring this testing time, it is important we find things that make us feel normal and excited about the outside world again. Throughout isolation, air pollution has fallen drastically, so why not continue supporting our planet in other ways. 

So if you’re ready to create a big impact and leave a small carbon footprint, these are the 3 summer staple shoes you need 

The flatform!  

The elegant sandal that gives you the platform you needFor those of you seeking comfort while keeping your feet cool, consider your prayers answered. This practical pair ties all your summer outfits together. Nasty Gal has a strong option with a cork platform, combined with faux suede black straps that elegantly wrap around your ankle. The mix of neutral cork with dark fabric creates the perfect contrast and provides the ideal casual shoe this summer while using vegan resources such as faux suede and alternative materials like cork. 

The strappy heeled sandal is a must.  

This summer staple can be used to dress up any comfortable outfit. The simple barley there heel is a timeless classic, so to stay environmentally friendly, make this your summer staple for many years to come. 

Nasty Gal also has the perfect pair to get you through summer. With a low block heel, you can stay comfortable whilst looking the part with these lavish white lace straps tying around your ankle. These heels will quickly become your go-to and can look upscale tied around your baggy bootleg jeans or with your dainty summer dress. The white staple ‘strappies’ can go perfectly with this year’s UK tan (if the sun decides to stay for a while)… 

White trainers always 

A pair of white trainers are always needed for your casual throw on outfit days, where you still want to look your best. Aiming for the effortless ‘I didn’t try today look, whilst still looking great? We got you. They are the easiest summer shoe to style, making any outfit look chic and comfortable. The Adidas Stan Smith Trainer is the perfect summer trainer, originally made and inspired by tennis, the summer sport, these crisp white trainers can be thrown on with your mom shorts and baggy cardigans for that effortless look. A perfect sustainable example is their collaboration with Stella McCartney, which is entirely made from vegan leather and recycled materials. The distinct McCartney take on these classic trainers is refreshing. 

Which will be your summer staple? If it’s an option for you, then why not this summer to invest in some more sustainable shoes and take that large step to keep our carbon footprint small. You could support a small, sustainable business this summer such as Momco and Verney, both who are certified by PETA and aim to create vegan, sustainable shoes including sandals 

Small businesses still need you now more than ever, so why not support one who supports our planet?
