What new daily rituals have you introduced to get you through isolation days?
I make sure I get up and do an hour of yoga before I begin the day, it really helps put me in a positive headspace, as well as maintain a consistent skincare regime.
I also try to write a list of what I want to achieve in the morning so I don’t get overwhelmed and try to do everything at once. I’m finding lighting a candle before bed very therapeutic too.

What are you watching / reading / listening to?
I’m currently reading “The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming” by David Wallace-Wells however it can make me feel a bit anxious so I’ve temporarily switched back to James Patterson’s fiction books, as well as lots of magazines to keep me inspired.
Listening to: I always have Abi Ocia on repeat but a cool artist I found through @sophiaippoliti is Oatmello, their song Kombucha is my current fave (funny names I know)
Podcasts: Offline, Bobo & Flex, Beauty IQ

What are you missing most right now?
Just the freedom of being able to do what I want, when I want. I miss not having to think about how long I should be out of the house for and feeling so suppressed.

…and the first thing you’ll do when this all ends?
Everything — go out for a nice dinner, go on a café crawl (yes think pub crawl but with coffee), book a trip overseas, go visit all of the boutiques that have had to close. Try and do everything I can to boost these industries that have taken such a hard hit.

What wardrobe pieces are you spending isolation days in?
I’m staying comfortable in loungewear most days but switching to laid back suiting when I know I have a day full of Zoom/Skype meetings! The Eleanora Suit is my favourite for this as it’s tailored yet relaxed so is extremely comfortable to wear all day, from the home office to the couch!
