Life after Lockdown | June 2021

Hello lovelies, 

Its certainly been a tough couple of months but with the lockdown restrictions lifting there has been hope. We've finally been able to go back and support our favourite high street shops, have a drink in a pub (in the pouring rain at some points) and even hug our friends and family! 

With the latest announcement from Boris Johnson pushing back the lifting of all other lockdown restrictions it has affected so many of us including our Mental Health. It has had an impact on so much- businesses re-opening or going back to 'normal', travelling and of course those dream weddings. 

For me I am holding onto the hope and the fact that I have such an incredible summer with my friends and family lined up- a wedding, birthday and my very first stay-cation! Now that's of course not me saying I'm happy with the announcement and that I don't feel for all those businesses impacted just that my way of coping is holding onto the hope and positivity. There are some things we can't control! 

I will admit I am going to miss the 'calmer' way of life. The fact that my weekends involved a trip to Tesco, walks on a Sunday and grabbing a takeaway coffee. I love seeing all my friends and catching up over wine but sometimes having a quiet weekend is exactly what I need. 

My goal for the rest of this year is to focus more on my fitness and be more mindful about what I eat and try and mix up my workout routine more (another blog post coming soon). I defiantly want to make sure I see more of my local area and go for as many walks as I can and of course take lots of pictures for the blog!

I am going to aim to try and live a more balanced life both work and personal. 

I would love to know, what are your plans for when we return back to a new 'normal'? 

Lots of love Chloe 💛

  3. I like that you said you're going to miss this calmer stage of life. Honestly, I've been so conflicted. I've HATED being at home so much but now that I have so many plans and things to do, I'm completely overwhelmed! I need to transition more slowly, I think! x

  4. I'm definitely torn between being so excited to get back to "normal" and dreading how exhausting socialising will be! The smallest things seem to tire me out now so I think it'll just be a case of taking everything slowly and slowly transitioning to pre-pandemic life x
