5 Things To Get You Through Lockdown



As England is now into its second lockdown for at least the month of November, I wanted to write a lockdown list together of little things that have had a big impact on my day-to-day happiness during my time spent at home this year.

SHEEPSKIN SLIPPERS


At the top of the list, it has to be my sheepskin slippers. They've seen me through working from home so well this year and I religiously shuffle around in them every single day, hardly ever taking them off.

LOUNGEWEAR


I think we've all had a greater appreciation for loungewear this year. Not only is it comfortable, loungewear now has a place within fashion in its own right. Whether you're a knitwear lounger or a fan of the comfy sweat co-ord, loungewear has certainly been an essential during this lockdown period.




SELF CARE BEAUTY


Next up isn't just any old beauty product, it's beauty that makes YOU feel good. I despise that downward feeling of sloppiness. It's that feeling you get when you've not made an effort in a while - perhaps you've left your hair wash a bit longer than usual; not worn makeup in months; or maybe you've not bothered to fix that three week old nail polish that is chipping all over the place. We've all been there and my favourite way to fix that sloppy feeling is to use some of the most feel good beauty products. It's surprising how good a coat of fake tan, a face mask and a freshly painted manicure can make you feel!



TV ON DEMAND


Did someone say I can get Netflix, Amazon Prime films, and TV catchup hubs all in one place on my TV? Yes please! I'm not usually one to write about technology but this couldn't not be on my lockdown favourites list, it's the Amazon Fire TV Stick. As a couple, we've stormed through many Netflix series this year. It may be way overdue but we finally got to appreciate the genius of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad. If lockdown gave me one thing, I'm thankful it was that.

HOME WORKOUT KIT


Now more than ever, exercise has aided my wellbeing. In the first national lockdown, I went through an obsessive stage with my yoga mat and skipping rope. This time around, I've ordered a pair of pink boxing gloves and taken up jogging. I'll do whatever it takes to fill that gym sized hole in my life and these affordable home workout options have been a life saver.
