It’s been an intense and lonely week since I got tested positive to COVID. Instead of discouraging myself, I decided to make a list of 5 small luxuries I started allowing myself during quarantine. Those 5 things are not only cool, but sometimes even useful!
1. HAIR CLAW CLIP
IF you know me, you may know that I am sucker for trends! Everything that is on trend cannot not be missed by me.
During my COVID quarantine, I got into hair claw clips but only cute ones. Given the high temperature in Milan and the 1kg inherited hair, I thought that claw clips could be the only fancy accessory in order to give me a tone.
While surfing on my IG, I happened to find the below page and amazed by its offering, I bought this cute hair clip ! Their hair clips are extremely fashionable when it comes to details (as you may see)!
It seems an unnecessary purchase for a quarantining gal, but honestly, I felt that looking pretty even IF alone, helped me getting through this ever unwelcome virus.
2. FOAM ROLLER FOR STRETCHING
The only positive outcome of getting COVID on the 15th of July in a warming Milan was catching up again on the gym habit. Between work and house’s keeping, I barely had the strength to dedicate time to working out.
Even IF it takes a while to convince myself, it feels so liberating and relaxing doing home workouts again! My greatest ally during these intense workout sessions has been the foam roller.
Beyond being ideal for stretching after the session, the foam roller helped me to completely stress out any physical/psychological pain as well.
It’s a lil pricy (I took advantage of the Prime day) but totally worth it!
3. NATURAL INCENSE (PALO SANTO) WITH ITS HOLDER
Between COVID and a work stressful period, I decided to destress myself by opting for a very zen thing: the natural incense. I have read that this woody piece helps to remove negative vibes and improve your mood! Indeed, it enhances generating a pleasing fragrance, while eliminating bacteria spread in the surroundings (so welcome for a infected human being).
4. NATURAL DEHUMIDIFIER BAGS FOR THE FRIDGE OR THE KITCHEN
Another trend I bumped into has been the natural dehumidifier bag, which is filled with 100% natural bamboo charcoal and helps absorbing bad smells. Those totally natural bags can help purify every area you like, while keeping your food or storage or surrounding in the room preserved!
You can find it on Amazon in different size options and availability! Try to believe, it’s a trend!
5. TOUR CITY GUIDES BY LOUIS VUITTON
Since I was extremely bored during my quarantine, I decided to plan my holidays a little. I never have time during my working week and therefore, I decided to take advantage of these spare moments to schedule everything.
IF you are a frequent customer of Louis Vuitton, you may know that they offer super accurate city guides (new editions available now) at 30 euros both on their official website and on Amazon. Beyond proposing countless cool places to eat, visit and enjoy, there is also a explanation on how to properly pack your luggage, which I found mind-blowing (especially for me being an obsessed packer lol)!
IF you have been in quarantine lately, please share your experience and suggestions to beat boredom below! They would be more than welcome!
