We've asked one of our favourite creators/bloggers Camelia Farhoodi 11 questions to get an insight into how she is dealing with our 4th lockdown in Victoria & how to keep a positive mindset.
Run us through a typical day in the life of lockdown in your household
Coffee and breakfast first! Breakfast is my fav meal of the day... so I really love to cherish morning time especially in lockdown! I’ve been taking some extra time in the morning for myself to relax and chill out as I don’t usually have this in my ‘normal’ everyday schedule. For the rest of the day it could be anything from uploading depop items, chilling with my boyfie or planning outfits for my Instagram! I’m usually quite intuitive with my outfits and like to throw on what I’m feeling on the day, but this extra time to organise has been a nice change.
How are you feeling generally and what do you do to keep a positive mindset?
It’s been so tough for Melbournians.. going through 4 lockdowns takes a toll on every bodies mental health! I’m generally feeling okay. I’ve been super tough on myself on the past lockdowns to try and better myself and do as much and everything I can in each day. This lockdown I’ve really tried to tone it back and actually take this time to relax. It’s been different, but I think I will go back into my normal routine with a more positive and creative outlook!
What do you find are your biggest challenges not being able to leave the house other than for the 5 exemptions (groceries, exercise etc).
Doing my job for sure! I love my job so much, so not being able to do it to its fullest extent is definitely hard. Also seeing family regularly.
Being a blogger/creator how do you find ways to stay motivated with content creation?
Listening to music always helps me get into a creative flow! I usually find a mood behind an outfit through a song I’m listening to. I also love going through magazines and photography books.
Name your top 3 self-care products and why?
A good face and hair mask always makes me feel fresh!
Coffee body scrub
Red wine to wind down at the end of the week always (a self care product for me)
What are your go to outfits in lockdown?
I’ve pretty much been living in my SOUTHST chocolate sweat set but other than that just cosy outfits, active wear, knits, slides all day! I try to get dressed some days to help me feel a little bit more ‘normal’
Favourite comfort food?
Nothing I love more than gnocchi with a red wine on a cold night.
Name a bingeable tv series we need to watch
Breaking bad, my favourite show ever!! if you haven’t watched it… you need too!
How do you keep your body moving?
I love walking! I usually walk everyday for about an hour. I also do HIIT workouts 3-4 times a week
