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.

International Coffee Day: Coffee 101

Coffee, everyone loves it. If you’re reading this article, you are most definitely obsessed. Let’s just pretend coffee haters don’t exist. 

Today is the one day we can have unlimited cups of coffee, guilt-free. Yep, it’s International Coffee Day, so here are a few coffee hacks to level up your coffee game.

Get Flavoured 

Bored of having plain, instant coffee every morning? Switch it up by adding in some natural spices. Vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin spice; the list is endless. Simply add a dash to your coffee for flavour that packs a punch. 

Starbucks Standard 

If you want to really take it up a notch, invest in coffee syrups. You’ll be making Starbucks standard coffee in no time. A few pumps of caramel or vanilla will sweeten your coffee and give it that barista-made feel.

Most likely you saw the famous “tiktok” coffee at the beginning of lockdown. If not, you can still join in on the trend because it is never too late for coffee; 

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp instant coffee 
  • 2 tbsp sugar 
  • 400-500ml milk (I use whole milk but dairy alternatives such as oat milk work a treat.) 

Method 

  •  Whisk the coffee, sugar and 3 tbsp boiling water in a bowl for approximately 5 mins until the mixture is thick and fluffy with stiff peaks. This works most efficiently using an electric whisk but can be done by hand. 
  • For hot coffee, heat the milk and pour into two heatproof glasses. For cold coffee, pour the cold milk into two glasses. Divide the coffee mixture in half and spoon evenly on top of the glasses. Serve and stir thoroughly before drinking.
