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.

All The Summer Shoes You Need This Year

With being at home quickly becoming the new normal, you may have traded your beloved shoe collection to a one-item staple, slippers. This has got to change, especially as lockdown starts to lift slightly! When we decide to leave the comfort of our homes and return to whatever the outside world will bring, you will need a collection of new footwear to wear immediately – and no, not your old dusty trainers! 

So, let’s paint those toe-nails as you hit up these gorgeous 2020 shoe trends – even if for now, you are only going to wear them for the gram. 

A new take on a classic 

Posh flip-flops! Who knew that a shoe as classic as this would be made over? I suppose it is 2020 – the year where anything can happen. This reinvented shoe is the polar-opposite of swimming pool vibes. With a variety of different variations from the simple toe-thonged design to multiple strapstoe-strappedflat or heeled, this classic shoe has got it all, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Oh, and they’re so comfy too! 

Forget about jewellery and instead get some shoellery 

Chunky gold chains have made a comeback this year however, a necklace is just not enough. From sandals to pumps to boots, chain straps are all over 2020 shoe trends. So, you don’t need to find an anklet this year, just dazzle your feet in chain strapped shoes. Perfect for adding some sparkle to your summer shoe collection! 

 

Out with the old and in with the new, shoe 

Stiff, boyish loafers have had an upgrade and been replaced with a new wave of loafers. From chunky squared heels to slingback styles, this timeless classic has finally had a well-deserved makeover. Upgrading your cute top and jeans look has never been so simple.  

 

All about the logos 

I think I speak for us all when I say that we all love a designer shoe and 2020 has been no stranger to the rise of obnoxious yet luxurious, big logos being thrust all over shoes. Whether it be a Chanel slider or a Dior canvas shoe, these shoes are the epitome of high fashion and I am living for it! Don’t think my bank account is though – oops! 

The summer boots 

Don’t think for a second that boots are just for the colder months, as boots dressed up or down with a dress or skirt make a fabulous summer statement. Whether it be a classic ankle boot or a more daring, over-the-knee boot, summer 2020 has got it all. Summer boots don’t need to be boring, so brighten up your summer boot wardrobe with shades of brown and oranges to upgrade your neutral ensembles, blues and greens to add a soft touch of colour to your wardrobe or go all out with red and yellow boots. The colour mix-ups are endless! 

 

Chunky yet comfy 

Wave goodbye to kitten heels (finally) and say hello to the return of the chunky platform heel. Offering a height boost and still being stylish, perfect for when we can all start returning to normal. Chunky shoes are going to be everywhere, whether they’re sandalsmules or boots – so embrace the platformed lifestyle. Short girls, your prayers have been answered.  

 

All tied up 

Say hello to 2020’s ultimate sandal trend, the gladiator sandal. Enriched in rope for a chic flat to wear at all times. Yes, we do recommend these can be worn if you are working from home! If you want to be even bolder, lace the sandals around the bottom of your trousers/jeans for the ultimate catwalk, risk-taking look. Take it from us, you need a pair of these sandals in your summer 2020 wardrobe! 

With all this shoe madness, there’s an extra reason to want lockdown to end. We suppose Instagram will have to do… For now!
