Essential beauty tips for 2018

OK, so we know it’s still rainy and cold outside, and those glorious spring days may seem like a long way off yet, but we’re almost into March (I know, how has that happened?!) and soon the evenings will be getting lighter and we will be bidding farewell to the de-icer, and warmly welcoming blue skies and sunshine on our faces. Yes, I am talking about the arrival of spring. Most of us all love a good spring clean and organising our lives after hibernating over the winter. Starting the season a fresh is a such fabulous feeling and where better to start with said spring clean than with our wardrobe. Every year when the seasons change, I love putting away those winter warmers and bringing out lighter fabrics. There is something so liberating about the first day of the year where you can step outdoors without a coat on, don't you agree?
Now girls, let's be real. We don’t really need much of an excuse to browse online through our favourite shops, but this time of year is the perfect time to treat yourself in celebration of surviving the winter. With a new season, comes new trends and hunting down some new pieces for our shiny, freshly organised spring wardrobe is something that just has to be done. You know, as a reward for enduring all those cold miserable days not long passed...

Style Tips For Transitioning Into Spring

Ever since ancient times, humans have kept pets and it isn’t hard to see why – pets are great! While we might probably not go as far as our ancestors from 12,000 years ago who were actually buried alongside their pets, but they still remain a big part of lives.

They provide companionship, improve health, listen to us and help us form relationships. Not to mention all the hilarious things they do - we’ve all gone down the rabbit hole of funny pet videos on YouTube when 30 seconds of procrastinating ends up being a four-hour marathon watching every silly video in existence of a laughing cat.

Six great things about owning a pet

Our style – and by extension, our personality – is determined very often by the clothes that we wear, and the accessories that we pair with our outfits. Being able to wear the right jewellery with the right outfit for the right occasion will show off who you really are, and highlight your clothes, your style, and the jewellery itself.

Self-esteem is a tricky part of life to keep on the straight and narrow. All too often, it can veer off course, affecting every part of our lives, from our friendships to our working habits. The trick when suffering from low or fluctuating self-esteem is to take the initiative and source your own extra confidence to reinforce against any growing sense of worthlessness. Here are some easy-to-remember tips for those experiencing flagging self-esteem, who feel ready to take the bull by the horns and boost themselves into a better mindset.


Five Ways to Boost Your Self Esteem

As we go through life it is easy to forget to look after ourselves the way we should. We eat the wrong things, drink the wrong things, go to sleep with makeup on and skip the gym because we can’t be bothered to go. Looking after yourself doesn’t mean that you have to treat your body as a temple, but you do have to believe that you’re a goddess and that you’re worth the effort. All of these things should be done for yourself and not for anyone else, the way you fell and the way you look is something that you should determine for you, and not because someone told you that you should be a certain way. When you spend time pampering yourself, putting makeup on and choosing an outfit to wear, you shouldn’t be made to feel like you’re not beautiful without it all, nor that you are any less beautiful for wearing it. If it makes you feel good, then why not? 


When it comes to your health, you need to speak up. When you feel ill, you need to see a doctor. It happens too often that people just don’t want to go to the doctor’s simply because it inconveniences them. It is also annoying that doctor’s surgeries always have a waiting list and close before half of the population is home from work. So look into things like GPs powered by babylon, an online GP app that allows you to chat to a doctor at any time. 

When choosing what to eat, you are more than welcome to all of the ‘bad’ food people tell you not to eat, just eat it in moderation. A healthy balanced diet is all you need to live a healthy lifestyle, and still have room for some treats now and again. Just think about introducing new recipes and ingredients into your diet - dark green veg is rich in iron, swapping cows milk for almond will help to reduce bloat and clear your skin, less carbs do the same thing. You don’t have to deprive yourself of the things you love, just make sure it’s in moderation. 

Again, exercising doesn’t mean you suddenly become a gym bunny or change your whole lifestyle. But introducing a workout routine will always benefit your body. If you want something out of the gym, then try running, swimming or yoga. There are workouts you can do at home and ones that only take ten minute a day. 

So many people lose confidence in themselves because of their skin. But there are many things you can do to help clear it up. The first is one already mentioned; changing your diet. Dairy, caffeine and sugar all contribute to bad skin so think about swapping for different products. A daily skin care routine will go a long way towards clearing up acne and evening out your complexion, just don’t forget sunscreen in your routine. You can also give your skin a deep cleanse with an exfoliating mask or scrub, followed by steaming your face. Fill a basin with hot water and lean into the steam, drape a towel over your head to trap the steam. You can add essential oils to the water to give your skin an extra boost.
