Looking back on my editorial plans for life in 2020, never (ever, ever) did I think that a list of essentials you need in the midst of a pandemic, would be a part of the blog!
Yet, here we are.
When coronavirus first became a part of peoples’ verbiage, and hand gel started to sell-out like Hoxton’s cinnamon buns (if you haven’t tried them yet, DO), options for ‘pandemic essentials’ weren’t readily available.
Fortunately, as the world and our needs have shifted, companies have been producing items which make navigating social distancing a little easier. And nicer all round!
Cue: hand gels which smell nice! Lotions which counteract those (now) dried-out hands. Masks in beautiful prints.
We have to make adjustments, but that doesn’t mean giving up on little luxuries, and things which make this time just a bit more bearable.
Over the past few months I’ve come across a handful of new ‘essentials’ which I’ve grown to rely on. Here’s my roundup! I hope that they’ll make the rest of 2020 a bit brighter for you too!
