Whether you’re a one shade mani kind of person, or favour a nail art design, here’s some of the top nail trends for 2021. Don’t forget to take a cute nail selfie!

Negative space

We don’t need anymore negative vibes in 2021 but we’ll make an exception for this cute nail trend.

2. Brunch With The Girls

Already booked up? Here’s some day and night outfit inspo for those warmer climates…

Linen Beachwear

5. Support Small Businesses

Visiting your fave small independent shops hasn’t been possible throughout lockdown and now it’s more important than ever to support them! So, grab a few friends and make a day out of it, you’ll be helping the economy!

If you don’t already have these small businesses on your radar then you’re missing out…

8. Have A Day Trip

Is there really anything better than a day trip? Visiting a popular nearby seaside spot or even visiting a different city for the day has to be the best way to spend time with your besties.

From checking out new shops to eating at new restaurants, day trips are an all-round fab day out. This is definitely worth putting down on your bucket list! And yes, we definitely think you should start at Brighton Pier…

9. Go To A Theme Park

Oh how we’ve missed screaming at the top of our lungs on the scariest rollercoasters. Theme Parks are ALWAYS worth a visit and definitely worth one of the thrill-bursting things you need to be doing after lockdown.

So, which one are you visiting first? Alton Towers or Thorpe Park?
