things I’ve found solace in | isolation edition pt. 2

It’s hard to really write about how I’m feeling right now when to be real honest, I’m experiencing at least several emotions in each hour that passes by. I have found myself seeking solace in all manner of things but a few things have really struck a cord with me or have just eased my mind that extra bit; and I wanted to share them here.

This article from Vogue made me feel all the feels. I found it quite an emotional read as although I do still live at home, I felt a certain parallel with Bella Mackie was writing in relation to my grandparents. I have always had more of a sister/best friend type of bond with my mother and so, my grandparents are more like parental figures to me so it is quite a foreign feeling to not be allowed to see them. A lot of what Mackie wrote really resonated with me but it was also nice to have that moment of realising that their is another human being, and many more, out there who are experiencing the same emotions that I am.

On the topic of Vogue, I really enjoyed this video from their Vogue Paris Youtube channel. I have mentioned their home videos before, which I really enjoy, but I loved this video and wanted to quickly mention it here.

This article from Refinery29 has been the greatest and most relatable thing I have read during lockdown. I have found myself becoming a bit ratty at times with everyone around me and I honestly couldn’t say why, other than the fact that we may be getting in each others personal space too much; so reading this article was very much needed. I’d highly recommend that everyone give it a read. I already sent the link to my boyfriend and mom.

The fact that Scotlands Home of the Year has begun again just is amazing. Obviously I don’t live in Scotland but I love it’s scenery and I’m a huge fan of Kate La Vie (probably touched on that in other posts). I love interiors and find the whole topic of architecture just so interesting so I can’t wait to watch the rest of these episodes. If you like these types of shows too then I’d also recommend Amazing Interiors on Netflix and a newfound fave of mine The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes on Netflix also. I haven’t quite got through the entirety of the latter as there is multiple seasons and I’m desperately trying not to spend too much time on screens while in lockdown -which is insanely difficult when you find such great shows that you want to binge watch.

This post by Alice Catherine. Her posts are ones that I’m always so happy to see appear in my bloglovin feed but this one in particular really sang to my soul.

And finally, this video from New York Magazines YouTube channel. I have found a lot of their videos being recommended since taking an interest in their interior videos and this recommended watch definitely didn’t disappoint. There is something so inspiring and empowering about people who find themselves on unexpected, but beautiful pathways in life. Lyn Slater could be said to be one of these people. If you love Iris Apfel or the post I shared on her, then I’d definitely give this a watch too.

Stay safe.

Cheerio for now!
