My favourite summer makeup looks

Makeup has always been a love of mine but I've found myself, probably over the last 6-9 months (pre-lockdown) repeating the same makeup looks for ease and to save time. I got lazy with experimenting and trying new looks was a thing of the past. However, thanks to lockdown, I have had a lot more free time on my hands and so one of my favourite things to do has been to practice makeup.

I'm lucky to have had some amazing friends that have kept me sane, organising regular house party video calls and group quizzes, so I've had a reason to dress up a bit and make myself feel good. I've given myself extra time to get ready for these calls and have spent the time trying out new makeup looks I've found on Pinterest, or that have been inspired by some of my favourite makeup artists on Instagram.

Here are 5 of my favourite looks!

My favourite healthy evening meals (pt. 1)

Cooking has never really been an interest of mine. I've always considered it to be tiresome, long and - honestly - pretty boring. However, during lockdown it's like someone has flicked a switch in me and I'm suddenly obsessed with cooking. I don't mean the type of cooking where you take the frozen food and throw it in the oven, rather fresh, homemade meals from scratch. I've found myself a new-found Pinterest addict, constantly looking for new recipes that I can try.

It's been a long 12 weeks but cooking has really helped to give me some structure and routine within my days, as well as a new hobby! Here are 5 of my favourite evening meals that I've cooked over the last three months. I hope you enjoy!

SHELF LOVE: 5 books in (just over) 48 hours

Keeping myself occupied during this lockdown has been a challenge, at times, with boredom creeping in quickly some days. I've found reading to be an amazing escape from reality and so I've spent a lot of time soaking up the nice weather (one bonus) with my Kindle in hand.

I used to think I could read quickly but I've found recently, with reading more, I've sped up even more. I've found I can read a good book in around 3-4 hours (when a book averages around 300-450 pages). So, with A LOT of time on my hands, I decided to set myself a challenge...

5 books in 48 hours

I know this sounds a lot but without much to do to pass the time at the minute, and being a quick reader, this didn't feel impossible to me.

My 5 favourite healthy breakfasts

Cooking is one of my recent passions and, with trying to eat healthily, it can be a challenge. I find that eating clean can be tedious and without variety, difficult to keep up. I'm a real foodie so I can't eat the same thing over and over - I like trying new recipes and different flavours.

Breakfast is by far one of my favourite meals of the day. A good breakfast can start your day off well and be the first positive action you make. Here are five of my favourite healthy breakfasts (in no particular order)..
