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.

Creating the Perfect Home this Autumn

As the air gets colder and the leaves start falling, Mother Nature is readying herself for Winter – and you should be too! 

We all know there is no better feeling than being snuggled up on the sofa with a hot drink and some scrumptious snacks, so why not create yourself the house of dreams this season with a few of these tips 

Consider Colour 

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about Autumn is the crisp, bright orange leaves signalling the change in season – it is these colours that you should be incorporating into your home. 

Deep orange tones will help bring out your Autumnal spirit and will also get you in the mood for Halloween! These shades are often well paired with copper or cool silver tones, which can easily be incorporated into any style of home.  

If you are feeling a bit shy, then make the tiniest of changes to your décor by adding a pillow or blanket, or even just swapping your art or prints over. Natural, earthy tones could be added to give more depth to your space and can be less intimidating to style. These typically blend well with brassy, gold shades and deep blues. 

The smallest of changes can make the biggest of difference when it comes to transitioning your home throughout the seasons. 

Texture, Texture and more Texture!

Texture is the simplest way to update your home this Autumn, as this season pretty much just consists of cuddling up in blankets. You can easily throw a blanket over your sofa or armchair and immediately change the look and vibe of the room.  

Adding a variety of clashing textures in your home can help break up the up space, whilst still complimenting each other perfectly. I’d recommend mixing and matching with tartan, faux fur, velvetpom poms and metallic tones like gold, copper, and silver to flatter and brighten the colourway of your choiceThis could be done with metallic ornaments, picture frames, vases, candelabrascandles, and hurricane candles.  

Accommodate the Senses

People often overlook how a scent can affect your home, but it’s one of the first things that people pick up on. There are a variety of ways in which you can alter the smell of you homeYou’ve typically got scented plug ins and air fresheners, but what really makes your house a home is the presence of candles (and reed diffusers!). 

Some good scents to get you feeling warm and cosy this Autumn are mulled wine or cider, pumpkin spice, brown sugar, oak, fig, apple, ginger, and vanilla; Mixing both fruity and sweet scents is the perfect way to set the mood in any home.  

There are so many great brands to choose from when it comes to ‘Autumnal scents’, but a few I would recommend are Yankee Candle, The White Company and Molton Brown.  

Making these changes to your home will certainly help you transition into the new season comfortably and help create a calm, cosy and comforting haven for Autumn 2020.
