  • What got you through these past few months!? Share with us! Some people are still stuck in total lockdown (depending on where they live) so any and all suggestions will I'M SURE be welcome! πŸ™‚ Also, if you do the secret guided meditation, do let me know what you think! xxx

  • Coming back to this because we currently have stay at home orders in Wales for the forseeable future πŸ™ Feeling super anxious tonight and your channel always, always helps me feel better. Thank you Melanie <3

  • 8:32 are you kidding me! You are the only other chick that I β€œknow” that loves The Sopranos too, you just keep getting cooler haha πŸ’š

  • I can totally recommend Audible. They've got a lot of Doctor Who audiobooks, for fellow Doctor Who fans out there. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. I've been redescovouring The Eleventh Doctor, but they've got all sorts.

  • You're so unbelievably gorgeous 😍😍😍😍

  • Thanq 😍ur very beautiful. Good speech. I'm comfortable πŸ‘

  • Hi Melanie πŸ™‚ I'd enjoy you uploading more favourites videos again. Love the fact that you made a guided meditation as well!

  • I love your meditation video SO much!

  • I've found myself re-watching the same shows I watched for comfort when I was going through the worst time of my life, so that's comforting

  • Love Life on HBO MAX made me cry and warmed my heart right back up after ripping it out multiple times! I would check for triggers, just in case, as it deals with a lot of real world shit.

  • Some of my things:
    -have a loose schedule and keep to it(showering, REMEMBER TO NOT SKIP SKINCARE, eat 3 meals etc.)
    -doing a full makeup beat when bored for entertainment/trying new techniques/different color combinations
    -the body shop hemp hand cream is a THICC cream which helped my hands
    -stretching/walking around my house/exercise(simple and/or hardcore youtube exercises)
    -discord calls with best friends playing games
    -decluttering/reorganizing rooms

  • Orange oil and Eucalyptus is so nice! It's so nice to see a favourites from you again πŸ™‚ x

  • I just got surfshark last month! What a shame, I would have absolutely used your code!

  • Have you mentioned 'Derry Girls'. Love that series. The acting is amazing. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ίβ€

  • I haven't watched in forever and omg congrats on pregnancy

  • I missed this content so much Melanie and missed seeing you! This makes me so happy, thank you so much for this video πŸ™‚

  • when I look at your beautiful skin I'm like…….lemme go drink some water real quick

  • Not being able to buy clothes in these tough times has been horrible. My wardrobe caught on fire a couple of months ago because of a lamp i left in there unsupervised. I lost 90% of my clothes. It made me really sad and now i am only wearing mom's clothes to go to the supermarket and they don't fit me, makes me feel so uncomfortable and 'out of character' . Anyways i will survive.

  • Hi Melanie, I just wanted to say thank you so much for being you. I genuinely feel like you're my older sister and I'm so grateful for all that you share with us. I always watch your videos at night as I usually struggle to fall asleep because of anxiety, but your videos give me so much comfort and joy. Thank YOU for being YOU! We appreciate you so much

  • I LOVED normal people 😍😍😍

  • Ahh I always used to watch your favourite videos! This was perfect! You are glowing and so happy πŸ’ž

  • Hi Melanie, I am a man from the USA and I was offended by the Gillette ad (I realize I am late to the game). I felt it painted all men as"toxic." I just watched your video on toxic masculinity and it was brilliant! I think you did a very good job of explaining the difference between "toxic masculinity" and masculinity. Thank you for your view on this polarizing topic. I am sick of the women vs. men battle in societal rhetoric (and fueled by the media) and just want all of us to strive to be the best we can be. I'm sure you got a lot of hate for that video (as evidenced by your comments being turned off, that's why I'm commenting here) and that's a shame. Emotional/kneejerk reactions to uncomfortable ideas is toxic in and of itself. Thank you for being you and sharing your views.

  • I personally miss monthly vlogs πŸ’š It could be a whole month of you sitting on a couch and I’d still watch it πŸ™‚

  • Calling "The Sopranos" an oldie certainly makes me feel like an oldie!!

  • "I've lockdown hair , lockdown eyebrows …"

    Melanie your hair and eyebrows are still gorgeous and shining and you are glowing what are you on about 🀣 my roots are like 3 inches grown out and my hair is dyed mad red so it's so obvious and my shaved sides have grown out and are sticking straight out of my head LOL

    Loved this πŸ–€πŸ’š

  • Thank you so much for reminding me of hand creme! I am guilty of only taking care of my face, i ignore the rest of my skin. πŸ˜€ Dove is not an option for me, but I will go and look at ethical and organic alternatives. Also love the essential oils, Lavender is my favourite at the moment! Loved the video! <3

  • Melanie I also feel like a mouldy potato πŸ™ˆ Love from Maynooth ❀️

  • Normal people has been on my list and I need to start it!!

  • Monthly favorites are always one of my favs!

  • How’s toby now huh?

  • Melanie! What hi-lighters do you use?! <3

  • I really can't stress enough how lucky people are with partners during this crazy year. Being alone (after a horrible break up in March with someone I loved) this year is so lonely and scary. Hold your loved ones close!

  • Giving you that engagement wooo
