My Quarantine Routine

My Quarantine Routine

Truthfully, I don't know how best to proceed with this blog. All I know is how vital it is to my sanity during a time when I've lost the majority of my work. Writing and creating in whatever way I can has always been so important for my mental health. I'm actually finding that confinement [...]

What To Wear, Cook, Watch, Read & Listen To While At Home

Like many of you, I've been feeling anxious and slightly panicked over the past days due to our least favourite c-word.
