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.

Work From Home Beauty Treatments

The effects of lockdown still sees many of us working from home. Whilst you might not necessarily choose to wear a full face of makeup every day, there are lots of things you can do to still feel your best whilst working from home. If lockdown has taught us anything, it is to appreciate the little things in life and now more than ever, it is important that we are doing things that make us feel good about ourselves.

Here are five beauty treatments you can incorporate into your week whilst you WFH 

Feet Masks 

The perfect opportunity to soften and nourish your feet and the best part about it – nobody will even know you have your feet sheet masks on. I highly recommend the Seoulista Beauty Rosy Toes Instant Pedicure”. Pop them on and allow the serum to infuse for at least 30 minutes and end your day with super silky feet. 

Facial Massage 

One way to utilise those extra few minutes between zoom calls is making time for a little athome facial massage. With so many benefits from increasing circulation and blood flow, achieving a glowy complexion; improving skin texture and fine lines and just making you feel relaxed with indulgent aromatherapy oils. You can use any product you want, whether you choose to opt for a beautiful rose facial oil or just your everyday moisturiser. There are plenty of routines to follow on YouTube too. 

Body Butter 

With no commute to work, why not spend a few more moments indulging in your favourite body butter or oil.  Allow your skin to work whilst you do and leave the “office” hydrated. I love the ‘NUXE Melting Honey Body Oil Balm’ which has a beautiful transformative texture melting from a balm to an oil leaving skin super soft. 


…because we only wear SPF on days ending in y”. Unless you are working from home in a windowless room, remember to always wear sunscreen. UV Rays can still penetrate through glass so wearing high factor sunscreen as part of your everyday routine will prevent signs of ageing.  

Remember to Cleanse 

Skincare is self-care. You might not be wearing make up every day but when it is time to put the laptop away, wind down by pampering yourself, cleansing the day away, giving your skin the treat it deserves for making it through the day and it will thank you for it. 


Give the world the best of you and if you put yourself at the top of that todo list, the rest will fall into place.
