Hello everyone! I thought this would be a good post to write as it may give you a few ideas what to have to eat during your days at home, as many of you will be used to going out to work in an office or wherever, so now that you may be working from home and have a little more time during your lunch breaks to make food, this may give you a little inspiration on what to eat! I do also just want to say, I haven't changed what I would normally eat just because I'm shooting it for a post, I don't eat this everyday and it does vary day to day on what I fancy to eat. Everybody eats different things and have different diets, so this is just what I ate on this particular day. Nobody should be judged for what they choose to eat or choose not to eat. I hope you enjoy looking through what I ate on this day. This is something a little different to the usual stuff I do but never the less, I loved doing it.

BREAKFAST - Two pieces of toast, a strawberry yogurt and apple juice.
I've really been reaching for this breakfast quite a lot lately, I tend to give myself more of a chilled morning lately and start work around 10-11 so this is a quick breakfast for me to grab. I love eating something fresh with my breakfast in the morning, like a yogurt and strawberry yogurts have been my go-to for years!

LUNCH - Houmous and Ham wrap, packet of salt and vinegar French Fries.
I totally forgot to shoot my lunch but this is what I had. I remember once having houmous that was going out of date and I thought 'Oh, I'll just wack it in a wrap' and it was amazing. One of the best lunch ideas I've ever discovered and it is so easy and cheap to make!

SNACK - Chocolate Brownies. 
I have saw so many people doing this during this weird time we're going through right now and I decided to do it myself. I love brownies and I was craving them so bad seeing so many people make them lately so I decided to make my own. I made 12 brownies and froze half. Baking is such a fun little thing to do when you are stuck in and you could literally have a baking day with all your fam that you live with and batch freeze them for when you fancy it.

DINNER - Chinese Chicken curry.
Again, I've been loving these meals that I've been picking up from my local Tesco and I crave Chinese food so much and this really cures my cravings. I usually have these with some gyozas but I couldn't find them in any of the shops (story of everyone's life at the moment I know). I also forgot to shoot this too (I am the worst blogger hehe!) but I've searched it and linked it here for you because it is THAT GOOD. It is worth trying!

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY WHILE SELF ISOLATING

Hello, Happy Sunday! So if you've been following me for a while, you'll know that I moved into my new flat a few months ago and I've been organizing little drawers and stuff since and finding something that works for me now I have all this space that I haven't ever had before. And with that, I have finally finished my bedroom (I think... for now!) and I wanted to share it with you. I've also linked everything that I could possibly find at the bottom of this post for you (or something very similar as a lot of items were brought quite a while ago so chances are they may not be in stock now!), if you are interested in anything that is featured. I hope you enjoy this week's post.

Hello. I thought I would share some light on this topic as I feel as I've been in the dark and to be honest, I didn't take this seriously until now. Coronavirus is a new virus that has came about and is spreading very quickly. I know some people that are currently self-isolating themselves, which includes staying in as much as they possible can without having contact with anybody else.

I'd just like to share some tips that I've saw and that I'm doing myself to put you all at ease. This is the last time I will be discussing this as I want this platform to be a happy place where you can take your mind off topics like this as I know it's all we've been hearing about lately.

Wash your hands. This is the biggest thing that everyone seems to be saying. Carry around hand sanitizer and if you can't get any, as a lot of you know the supermarkets have been massively affected by this and there isn't a lot of stock left. Victoria has done a Youtube video where is includes a home recipe for a hand sanitizer (which starts at around 8:20) that is very easy and cheap to make.

Only take what you need from stores. Just don't be selfish, don't take all the toilet roll, don't take all the soap. We are all in this together and if you buy all the soap then that isn't going to make a difference, we all need to be using soap for this method to be effective. If you've took all the soap and someone else hasn't then they can still transmit the virus (if they have it).

Just be cautious when in public places, I know that 'we should all be washing our hands' and of course we do but it's just about being a little bit  more cautious right now. I know this is a very scary virus but don't stress. Look after your loved ones, if you have vulnerable family members then make sure they're okay. I've also saw that some people are leaving notes under their neighbours' doors to see if they need anything from the shops - I think this is a lovely idea. Of course, just to be careful I would just make sure you wash your hands before writing a note, just be careful about things. I think that's what I would like to stress. Just be extra cautious.

If you are working from home due to what's going on, from someone who works from home and has done for a while now. If you're used to working from an office then don't work more than you usually would, set yourself up as you would normally and work your usual office hours. It's important to set yourself a lunch break and have the same routine.

How to get your mind off what is going on in the world right now? My advice is to just do something you enjoy. Cook yourself your favourite meal, re-watch your favourite films or series' and binge on netflix. Just relax and do you. This is such a scary time right now, especially for those who have anxiety. Have a bath, relax and if you do find yourself still worrying then get your words out weather that's writing them down or calling a family member/friend and letting them know how you feel. Talking to someone can make a huge difference.

You can find more info about the virus here. I hope you found this comforting. We are all going through this together so please be cautious and look out for others. If have a bulk of toilet roll and you've noticed people looking for it and there's none left then share some generosity with them.

SELF-ISOLATION TIPS

Before you start reading this post, I'd just like to say that this is very imprompt and this isn't planned (enjoy an old picture of me that I've never posted online before) but I feel like with recent events that have happened, it's only right that I address a few things that have been on my mind. Having doing this for years, I've built up an amazing audience and I have the ability to reach out to thousands of people and I feel as it would be wrong and disrespectful (in my eyes) to carry on as if nothing has happened. This is partly a tribute to Caroline Flack. I just want to say that people can still disagree with someones actions but are we that cruel to say that someone deserved to take their own life? No. We can't be. This is probably the most serious blog post I've written to date but we can't ignore things and neither do I want to. Things need to change.

Social media plays such a big part in our lives in this era. We communicate on it, we can share our feelings and concerns and it's so glued to our hand that it's almost screaming at us. But it also has such a dark side where people can vocalize their opinion without any moderation or consideration for others and that is crazy. I know so many people personally and even myself that has been commented about online by complete strangers that 'know me'. It's a huge reminder that you only see such a small percentage of someones life and no money or fame can take away feelings and emotions because it doesn't matter how much money someone has or how much they are perceived to have a 'perfect life' there is no such thing. We're all human and we all have our own things that we're battling.

I find it so important to reach out to people that I know. I have such a 'banterous' type relationship with my closest friends but I love them all dearly and would drop absolutely anything to make sure their okay because you never know someone is going through and you never know the last time you might see someone. It's the truth. Always value your time with the people you love. I was having a chat with my friend recently and we got onto the topic of things about friendships (who I've known for the longest time) and we were saying how we couldn't imagine what would make our friendship break but it's so true. Yes, we get on each others nerves but god. We wouldn't be dramatic about that. It's something that I've learned as I've got older and something that I generally think about more but making effort is such a huge thing for me to do for people have the most care for.

I'm not saying we're not allowed to be annoyed because gosh, we subconsciously don't think. But some things aren't worth being annoyed about. We are so privileged to be able to walk out our homes feeling safe, to be able to go to work and earn our own money for things we want and being able to go out and buy them. Some people aren't as lucky as you and that's something to remember. That top you have? Someone has been saving weeks to buy that. The school you go to? There are unfortunately countries where children don't get a free education or an education at all. The argument you had with your Mum? Some people don't have a Mum to argue with or a loving family with a safe house to go back to. Always appreciate what you have and never take anybody or anything for granted. We can all take something from this.

Always be kind.
