I'll be completely honest with you - I'm no beauty expert. In fact I'm still learning a lot about skincare. I only started a proper routine two years ago after years of just a make-up remover and an occasional moisturiser. My routine is now three times as long with Nivea's micellar water, The Ordinary's hyaluronic acid and La Roche Posay's cleanser, toner and anti-blemish moisturiser.

The amount of beauty products available and their ingredients can be overwhelming at the beginning and it's difficult to know where to start. But sites like Cult Beauty and Deciem easily explain the science behind how everything works and the end results you can expect.

I realised quickly how much of luxury and a treat it is to look after yourself in this way. To take the time to exfoliate, moisturise, wear a face mask or relax in a bath can have such a positive effect on your mind and your skin. That was the most important lesson I learnt.

The brightest style of the season, the next trend in the SS20 report is green! After years of predominantly only khaki options, we've now been given a broad spectrum of shades to wear. Victoria Beckham ensured no-one missed her vibrant 'highlighter' midi dress on the runway, Sies Marjan made their vinyl and taffeta designs looked like sweet-wrappers from a Quality Street tin while Dion Lee kept it 'down to earth' with a moss green braided dress.

This really is a trend you can have fun with as the vidid shades radiate happiness and confidence. The colour is best worn as a head-to-toe look - from the simplicity of a midi dress, to the mix and match of singlets, to the sophistication of a two-piece suit. Don't forget to play around with abstract shaped footwear, textured bags and stacked jewellery too.

It's the ride or die item in your wardrobe that never lets you down. A dress is the piece of clothing to live in! Pull it out of your closet, slip it on and you're good to go. When it comes to dresses there's so many options to choose from and they work for any occasion. A smart tie-up midi dress is perfect for those scheduled Teams meetings while French-inspired ditsy floral mini dresses are a must-have on those sunny days. For the ultimate luxurious experience, spend the day lounging around in a scrumptious silky gown for complete at-home-glamour.

Up next in the SS20 trend report is one of my favourites - minimalism. The runway was awash with minimal designs taking inspiration from the 90s. Helmut Lang demonstrated the beauty of simple lines, Givenchy delivered simples staples and Bottega Veneta combined classic and relaxed tailoring. Colour palettes are also stripped back with The Row, Nanushka and Bec + Bridge using monochrome and neutral colours.

This trend is part of an overarching theme of wearability and covers all aspects of your life with tailored trousers & oversized blazers for work and silk separates & corset tops for play. Accessories can also play a large part in wearing this trend with strappy sandals, square front mules, soft clutches and leather shoulder bags
