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.

How To Practice Self Care At Home

With us all spending more time at home than ever, I’ve got some great tips for practicing selfcare in every room of your home. So if you’re not ready to get out and about just yet, here are the tips for you… 

Turn your bathroom into an at home spa 

If you love a good spa day, you can always treat yourself to some pampering at home. If you’re lucky enough to have a bath, take advantage of it and throw in a bath bomb or lots of luxurious bubble bath. And you can’t go wrong with a face mask too, so whether you opt for a sheet mask or a bit of a messier face mask, use the time to completely chill out.

Bake! 

You don’t have to be a Bake Off or Masterchef contestant to get baking; all you need is a simple recipe, some bakeware and a few ingredients to get started. Why not join the masses and try baking a banana loaf? It’s not too late and it’s pretty simple to make, and so delicious! If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you could try making a vegan cake or flaky pastries to take to a summer picnic. This is the time to try anything! 

Keep on movin’! 

From doing some simple stretches to taking part in an online class, getting your body moving not only improves your physical health, but can do a lot for your mental health too. I love to get out the house for a walk outdoors for at least thirty minutes every day, if the weather permits. I find that I feel a lot better for it, particularly as someone who works from home. 

Get into a routine 

Sometimes, something as simple as getting dressed for the day, instead of spending it in your pyjamas, can make such a big difference. Doing your hair and makeup as if you’re going out, can also add a bit of normality to a day spent at home. It’s also a great excuse to try out some new makeup looks or hairstyles on yourself. Getting up at the same time everyday can also be a great way to get yourself into a routine, but don’t deny yourself a long lie every once a while either.

How do you typically practice selfcare? And which one of my tips would you be up for doing first? Let us know @cohorted!
