Refreshing Yourself Throughout The Spring | Blog Simplicity in Vogue | @ByAndreaB - wellness, wellbeing, spring, refresh your life

It can be absolutely wonderful to take stock of your current situation from time to time and try to see what might be holding you down. Perhaps a recent difficulty has you feeling a little bit shaken, or you simply feel exhausted from the heavy amount of work you’ve had to do. Perhaps you’re quite comfortable, but still feel that you could be doing more. Maybe you have a difficult and quite large project upcoming, and you’re starting to quake in your boots worrying about everything going wrong.

It's Spring now in the northern hemisphere. This is often a season of rebirth, growth, and beauty. It’s a symbol of new beginnings. This means that more than any other season, there’s a freshness and vitality you may wish to step into and enjoy. This can also be a great place to draw a line in the sand and consider how you are right now in the present, not what the past might be demanding of you. With that advice, let us consider:

A Fashionista's Guide To Holidaying With Hand-Luggage

A Fashionista's Guide To Holidaying With Hand-Luggage / Blog Simplicity in Vogue / @ByAndreaB - travel tips, how to pack, travel light, fashion and style

For the style-conscious, getting away provides the ideal excuse to buy new pieces and have fun with fashion. By the end of our vacation shopping, most of us struggle to meet even the checked luggage weight of our flight companies. Ahh, the joys of trying to weigh a crammed suitcase onto bathroom scales. That’s why this post might send fear through you. How could you ever go away with just hand luggage? It’s madness. Why would we even suggest something so absurd?

In truth, though, rising prices mean checked luggage isn’t always a wise choice. It can end up costing more than your flights themselves if you aren’t careful. By comparison, one piece of checked luggage is free with most flight carriers. And, as can be seen from reviews like those on Veolia Cargo, most luggage options now come in hand-held designs as well. Many even state which airlines you can take them on. If the price isn’t temptation enough, consider that it’s also possible to look amazing all holiday with just hand luggage. All you need to do is make sure you take care of the following when you pack.

Mental health had somewhat of a taboo attached to it in the past. To some extent, many of us avoid talking about it still today. There are lots of people who have faked a physical illness in order to take time off work to deal with a mental illness and plenty of people who are missing out on therapy and treatment because they are reluctant to talk about their struggles and symptoms with their doctor. But the good news is that we are, as a society, becoming more and more open about mental health and mental illness. If you have found yourself facing mental health concerns at any point through 2018, you should take the step into the new year as an opportunity to actively improve your mental health as best as you can! Here are a few steps that you can take in order to get the ball rolling in the right direction:

Unless you’re a famous celebrity or happen to work in a position that brings in boatloads of cash, then you’re probably like everyone else, and wish you had a little bit more money to play with. While you can’t magically gift yourself more money (though do think about asking for a raise, if you think you’ve earned one), you can bring more money into your life by reducing your expenses. This doesn’t mean reducing the quality of your lifestyle; it means keeping things essentially the same, but making sure it doesn’t cost as much! Below, we take a look at a few simple changes, which will lead to significant savings. By the way, as we are at the end of the year, this could be part of your new year's resolutions, haha.

With each change of season comes a change in fashion trends. One day it’s all about the floral or geometric prints, and jumpsuits and the next, all of a sudden as if overnight, winter has arrived. It’s amazing how quickly the weather changes and with it comes a new season - now that it’s the end of October, it’s well and truly the middle of fall for all my friends in the northern hemisphere and soon enough it will be winter.

As the weather gets increasingly colder, it’s important to think about how you will change up your wardrobe this season. While some people opt to overhaul their entire wardrobes as each season comes around, this can be extremely expensive and isn’t doable for everyone, which is why another good option is to choose to update your wardrobe with a range of accessories instead.

Accessorizing with jewelry is one of the easiest ways to create more outfits and make use of old items in the wardrobe that you don’t really wear anymore. It’s also a great way to personalize outfits and inject a bit of your own style in there. Just like anything else in fashion, the trends in jewelry are always developing and changing and if you want to stay relevant, you need to keep on top of them. With that in mind, these are some of the most popular jewelry trends right now and how you can match them with your outfits properly.

Whilst there’s more to a country than its capital, that’s usually the heart of a nation’s culture and history. Or, at the very least, the capital is often an apt summation of the best parts of a country’s heritage. And if you’re limited in terms of money and time when it comes to travelling, seeing a country’s capital or its most famous city might be the best way to get a feel for that particular destination.  But which capitals are the best places to visit in the world?

Should We Be Talking More About Mental Health?

Should We Be Talking More About Mental Health? / Blog Simplicity in Vogue / @ByAndreaB - wellbeing, wellness, mental health, depression, anxiety, lifestyle blogger

Everyone feels anxious, sad, stressed or worried from time to time. But there are plenty of people who go through long, drawn-out periods of feeling these things - many of whom are in the disabled community, and many others who are not.

When you have a disability, it’s not hard for people to see the connections between physical and mental health. After all, with physical disabilities, there are a lot of challenges in front of you that can have a serious impact on your life. However, those with mental health difficulties who are able-bodied have a rough time of it, too, and there is still a stigma attached to the subject in more ways than one.

The big question is - should we be talking more about mental health? Given the impact it can have - not just on people but their families, too - it’s hard to see why this would be a bad idea. Here are a few of the challenges everyone with mental health problems - disabled or not - can have to endure for extended periods of their lives.
