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.

Sustainable Knitwear Brands You Need in Your A/W Wardrobe

It’s no secret that sustainability is something that gets everyone feeling like they’re doing a little something for the environment. However, greenwashing is everywhere and sometimes, when we think we are supporting sustainable businesses and brands, it just isn’t so. So don’t worry, I’ve listed my top sustainable knit wear brands that not only do good for the globe but look chic on the streets too... 

Navygrey: 

A jumper brand focused on neutral colours and essential items. With knits starting from £145, the wool is handpicked and superfine, Woolmark certified and mulesing-free. The knits are finished by hand and the brand waste very little yarn, using any leftovers for future jumpers. Even the packaging is organic and uses FSC certified recycled paper – we love! 

babaa: 

A brand that’s core value is sustainability, with only natural resources and local materials used to create their pieces. The brand uses a single Spanish factory and the latest technology to ensure that toxic byproducts are a thing of the past and only the best is produced. With knits starting from around £90, you really are investing in quality. 

The Knotty Ones:

From craftswomen in Lithuania, not factory workersThe brand employ women in job scarce villages, paying them fair wages and allowing them to work from home in a safe environment. The knits start from £285 and are sustainable and contemporary, whilst empowering the women who make them. They state that the quality will last multiple seasons, as they contain natural fabrics and reduce their carbon footprint.  

&Daughter:

Lastly, I bring you &Daughter, a modern brand with a sustainable craft and high-quality pieces. With knits starting from £285, the entire brand is focused on sustainability and all pieces are made for longevity, with the yarn being sourced locally and made at home in the UK and Ireland. The knits are hand finished and each one is focused on one at a time.
