Let’s face it, lockdown is kinda like Groundhog Day.
You wake up every day only to do the same thing over and over. But it doesn’t have to be like that. Instead, you should find things to enjoy during lockdown.
We’ve gone through 12 months of restrictions, and everyone is feeling the pain. Some more than others. My friends in Melbourne have been in lockdown so many times, I can understand if they feel the need to break free and rebel.
I consider myself very lucky. Here in QLD, we haven’t had too many restrictions. We are staying safe and taking precautions of course, but we are lucky to be living a near-normal lifestyle.
Here are some of my favourite things that I found during lockdown. I like to call it my Lockdown Lust List!

One thing that kept me sane during this craziness of Covid-19 is coffee. Good coffee is absolutely necessary for my sanity. Without my morning (and sometimes afternoon) brew, I can become angry and difficult to be around. I feel sorry for my partner during those days.
A decent at home coffee machine means no more visits to the coffee shop.
I’ve been spending a lot more time doing some online shopping. I like to call it “research” of course, but when I find the perfect item for my home, I’m gonna buy it! I’m thinking cozy blankets and cushions, a comfy chair, a soft rug… you get the picture!
During early lockdown, I was able to nurture my love of gardening by buying gorgeous plants online. I might live in an apartment, but I am lucky enough to have three balconies where I can enjoy some sunshine and fresh air.
I invested in some beautiful plants that have given me so much joy.
So, tell me, which ones did you love the most?
Also, I’d love to know, how have you been spending your time during lockdown?
