Style blogger and content creator based in London. "Taking one day at a time, trying my best to stay positive and enjoy the slower pace and time at home over the next few weeks and months. Having time to think straight, read, take afternoon baths and do everything on my to-do list feels pretty good!"


What are you doing to stay positive in this current climate?

I'm taking each day as it comes and trying not to think too far ahead. Also really appreciating the little things and enjoying creating content at home.

Do you have any uplifting book/music/podcast recommendations that you can share with us?

I love Dolly Alderton's book - Everything I know about love and I'm currently reading The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan. I'm a big podcast fan and regularly listen to Fearne Cotton's Happy Place, So lucky by Dawn O'Porter and Things you can't ask yer mum by my blogger pals Lizzy and Lindsey - would recommend them all!

Are you working from home, if so do you have any advice to stay focused?

Yes, and as someone who already works from home quite a lot, it wasn't a massive change for me and I'm used to having to self-motivate. My number one tip is to get up and dressed and create a workspace outside of your sleep/ relax space to get yourself in the zone. I also like to set myself break markers/ incentives, for example, respond to emails for the next hour and then you can make yourself a cuppa and have biscuits - It works!

What is your working from home attire?

Loose-fitting basics and cashmere knits

Upbeat playlist recommendations?

A bit of Motown always makes me feel better! And I'm obsessed with Leon Bridges - Texas Sun at the moment.

How are you staying connected with those around you?

Lots of House party and Face time calls!
