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 Be Positive About The Rest Of 2020

With such a crazy, unexpected year upon us it is difficult to see the positives sometimes, however we can choose to focus on this year in two very different ways. We can all feel sorry for ourselves because we didn’t get to go on holiday, and we can get frustrated with new guidelines in shops or we can be grateful that our family and friends are healthy. Embrace that this year has taught us to appreciate the little things we once took for granted like being able to nip to the shop, seeing our family regularly or having a normal work routine. 

However, it is important to acknowledge that this has been a challenging time for everyone, especially those struggling with their mental health. Isolating with no work or normal life to focus on, the mind can wander into a dark place. This year has taught us we are strong enough to face anything and a bad day, week or month is never forever 

There is still time to get the most out of this year. 

The first thing I encourage everyone to try is the no complain challenge. You can do this alone, with a partner or family member. Start ofsmall, for example for the next 24 hours you cant complain about anything whether that is bad service at your coffee shop on the way to work or your computer being slow. Once you begin to stop yourself every time you complain over the small things, you begin to realise just how often you complain and how much negative energy you are constantly creating that you weren’t even aware of. This small change can seriously uplift your daily mood and help you become more grateful. 

Another similar step to make is to train your brain to learn to look for the positives in everythingIt sounds silly at first; like what would be the positive of me rushing home to just end up stuck in the nightmare motorway traffic? Well at least you have got more time to listen to your music, maybe you needed some time to reflect and not feel so hectic. You might just put on a podcast that changes your life that you wouldn’t have had the time to listen to before. At least you have someone to rush home to; you should feel lucky. What about the fact that you are sat in a warm car and not a cold damp bus? Once you have trained your brain to focus on the positives and not the negatives you will soon see how much happier you become.  

A good morning and night routine are so important for a healthy mindset; it ithe foundation of your day. Eliminating social media for half an hour when you wake up and before you go to sleep can really help, but the best tip I can give you is journaling. This is great for those with busy minds, just write everything that comes to mind with no pressure. Get it all out of your head, it gives you a huge sense of relief. Here is an excellent guide to journaling!

I also believe it is great to include a small journaling trick of writing down three things your grateful for whether it is what happened in that day or what makes you smile when you wake up. This sets you up to already be feeling grateful and positive. 

By 2021 you could have a whole new outlook on life.
