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.

Getting Your Life Back on Track with 3 Simple Steps

Firstly, this is just a reminder that sometimes you have to step back and take a moment to recollect everything that’s going on. Stop trying to force thoughts, feelings and actions that are not within your mental or physical capacity at that moment.  
 
Yes, we can often fall from the face of the earth at times and get caught up with life, and that’s OK. It’s important to embrace the journey you’re on and if that means you’ve fallen off track, then so be it! What does that really even mean? You’re just not living in alignment with your desires and values right now, but it doesn’t mean you’ve completely lost yourself.  

What is this teaching you? 
How is it making you feel? 
Has anything in your life been put into perspective?
 

I’ve assembled some simple steps on how to get your life back on track, without getting overwhelmed and stressed out by the thought of it. Life isn’t a race, it’s a marathon, so visualise it as part of the journey. You’re just not in it to power through, you have to go at a steady pace and take it for what it is. 

Step Number 1

First of all, strip everything back to basics. Figure out how you’d like your day to look and how you would like to feel at the end of each day. What are your days looking like right now? What habits do you have that are potentially holding you back? It’s all about asking yourself the right, relevant questions that will ultimately set you back on your path. Compare your reality to what you really want and create achievable goals, you’ll snap back in no time. 

Step Number 2

Refreshing your environment is a must. It might seem like it has a placebo effect, but realistically it does make you feel SO much better. When everything is organised and has its own place, you become much more prepared and decluttered. You can do this by having a total wipe out; get rid of the things you don’t want/need, clean every corner of your space and put everything in order. On the other hand, you could also re-decorate, up-cycle old furniture, add some new plants, photo frames and other accessories – spice it up a little. 

Step Number 3

Make plans as you usually would, don’t become a recluse because you’ve found yourself in a bubble. Speaking from experience, there have been times where I’ve fallen off track and I’ve allowed plans to pass me by, just because of my current mindset. It’s nice to have plans and it’s actually important to look forward to doing something, whether that’s with yourself or with friends and family. Give yourself time each week to have a coffee catch up, a picnic in a park, a dinner date or even a little movie night in. Plans don’t need to be lavish; they just need to be plans. Book something in and get it in your diary. 

Remember, slow down and embrace your feelings. Ask the right questions and be true to yourself. What are you learning right now that can help you in the future? Strip things back to basics, clear your space and make plans – three, very simple steps on how to get your life back on track.
