Ah Wednesday, the middle of the week at last! I swear, the week flies in after Wednesday, and soon Monday comes around again. Normally by now we’re basking in the sunlight and trying not to burn. However this year the weather seems to be conspiring against those of us looking to get a bit of natural colour. That being said, I’ve been changing my skincare setup over to my summer skin routine, and decided to share my skincare saviours of 2021 with you! Please be aware, this post contains affiliate links.

As yet another month begins, I can’t help but think back to April 2020 and how unsure life was. If only things were more certain waking up today! Well, that’s maybe a little unfair. I mean, things are beginning to look up if you’re living in England, Scotland, or Wales! Tell me, Wales, what does it feel like having had your hair cut? But rather than being down about it all, let’s look back at March before looking ahead to April 2021. Please be aware, this post contains affiliate links.

You have no idea how strange I find it sitting here writing a post one year on from the start of lockdowns in the UK.
