Guest Post: How to keep sensitive skin happy when travelling


Travelling can be hard going for even the calmest of skins - a sudden change in climate, very hot or humid conditions, the sun's UV rays and the plane journey itself to get there can really throw your skin off-balance.

I've travelled pretty extensively, so I've picked up some hero products along the way which keep my skin calm, hydrated and protected.

So whether you’re planning a weekend away, a week in the sun or going backpacking, here are my hero skincare products that I recommend you take with you.

Colosseum


Ever fancied a trip to Rome? Samantha from Coco Travels talks about 10 things you must do on your trip!

Colosseum

The Colosseum is top of my list for a reason. You know how sometimes tourist attractions can be overrated? Not this one! The Colosseum is absolutely incredible and I actually felt emotional when I rounded the corner and got my first glimpse of it. Do NOT miss it!


Trevi Fountain


The famous Trevi Fountain is usually packed with visitors and is apparently best seen at night time. We went in the day and it was pretty spectacular. You need to throw a coin in to ensure your return to Rome.


Guest Post: 3 Barry M Favourites


Hi everyone, I’m Tiffany and I’m a lifestyle blogger at Food and Other Loves. First of all thanks so much to Emma for letting me guest post today, this is only the second one I’ve ever done so I’m really excited about it! I thought I would do a beauty review for you all today and I’ve decided on ‘3 Barry M Favourites’. Barry M is one of my all time favourite beauty brands and my go to one for all things nails so I wanted to talk about the 3 nail polishes I always find myself going back to!

The first one I absolutely love is the shade ‘Dragon Fruit’. This is such a perfect Spring and Summer colour and one I always reach for as soon as the warm weather starts! It’s just the perfect pastel pink and looks even better on than it does in the bottle. It goes with so much as well and it’s one I get a lot of wear out of.

#MondayMotivation - Changing your life with a positive mindset

Changing your life with a positive mindset

Last week, I spoke about feeling like a failure, which focused a lot on trying to cultivate those negative thoughts and find a way to overcome them. But sometimes, that is easier said than done. These thoughts will not only continue if you don't do something about it, but they can really affect your outlook on all situations and your mood.

It might all seem a bit airy fairy to say 'You just need to be positive!' but the sentiment is totally true. It's not easy, and you don't have to be perkier than Elle Woods, but it's definitely a starting point. Here are some ways you can change your mindset, and get a grip on life when it's feeling out of your control.

1. Challenge your thoughts


I spoke about this in my earlier post to an extent, but when you have negative thoughts you need to stop and challenge them.

Guest Post: What's a Tagline and Does Your Blog Need One?



Ask anyone to name a tagline or slogan for a big name brand and bet they will be able to come up with a few.  Nike with their ‘Just Do It’ and Apple’s ‘Think Different’ are two of the first that comes to my mind.  But these are mega companies who can afford to create a tagline that has a higher purpose.  For bloggers, a tagline has a more practical purpose – to instantly tell visitors what your blog is about.

What’s a tagline?


Unless you are a blogger of the stature of Melyssa Griffin or Neil Patel, there’s a good chance that people won’t know who you are when they arrive on your blog.  They might have come across an article you have written or a social media update so there might be some idea about the content of your blog.  But what is your blog about?
