We’d just all been out for dinner to celebrate my youngest brother’s 20th birthday and I thought the sky looked so pretty as the sun was setting over the water. 🌅
Little did we know the sun was setting on life as we knew it and this photo was the last I had taken, before beginning a long period of isolation without seeing my family or friends.🙇🏼♀️
Those few months were really hard. Don’t get me wrong, I love living alone, especially after years of flat/house sharing, but a lot of the things I would normally do to occupy and enrich my time were taken away from me thanks to the lockdown. 🚶🏼♀️
Putting this out there is a little out of character for me, as I’m normally quite private about personal stuff and I put a huge front on when I see people in person. But I wanted to get real for a second; life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. I’m not going to sugarcoat it - I have been really struggling ☔️
As you may have seen from a previous post, despite my isolation efforts, I became really ill with COVID, which in itself was quite a traumatic experience. To add insult to injury, I was treated like some form of leper and uninvited from the first social occasion in weeks that I felt up to attending (notwithstanding the fact I was no longer positive for the virus). I felt super alone and like I could have dropped off the face of this earth without anyone other than my family giving a damn. And then the worst thing to come out of this year: we lost someone close to us.💔
I’m trying to remain hopeful that the sun will set on this whole chapter and a new dawn will eventually come. Until then...

I once took an eight month long break from art. I used to believe that whatever I create has to EXACTLY match my thoughts. What ended that break was a realisation that creative art needs practise. An artist trying to create is like a baby trying to walk. First, you gotta fall, topple, hit a few roadblocks and yet, keep trying. Only then will come a day when you'll learn to walk. But you've got to crawl your way to that point.

as we get older, ownership becomes more complicated, and our relationship to stuff more elaborate.”

🍷➕🤯: WHEN YOU’RE SELF ISOLATING IN THE WINE CELLAR 🤩
If you had to choose the ideal location for your covid-19 self-quarantine, where would you go? Give me the 3 star Michelin wine cellar of @delibrijezwolle please ✨
I realized I haven’t updated you guys on my feed yet 😬
A girl is back to work full time... the whole get up and leave your house work 😂. I’m so grateful because I like the change of pace amongst other things. It’s a whole new field and I have a lot of learning to do.
It mostly means I gotta find a way to make it all work - balance content creation with everything happening behind the scenes. Which in turn means you will see less of me for a while but I’m not going anywhere for good. I love this corner of our web and I appreciate you guys so much 😘❤️
On another note, I had to steal this from @adanna_david’s caption because I connected with it a lot.

New Zealand’s run of 102 days without community transmission ended Tuesday with the announcement that 4 new cases had been detected in an Auckland household.
It is now trying to stop the virus spreading and avoid the fate of nations like Australia, Japan and Vietnam, which after early successes in containing Covid-19 are now battling its resurgence.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Wednesday put Auckland, a city of 1.6 million people, into lockdown for an initial period of 3 days as authorities try to trace the origin of the infections.
Social distancing rules and limits on gatherings have also been reimposed on the rest of the country.
New Zealand had been the envy of the world after it eliminated local transmission of Covid-19 with a strict nationwide lockdown in April and May, and its economy bounced back strongly once restrictions were lifted.
The 4 people who tested positive are now in isolation and the government is racing to find all of their close contacts.
Some work colleagues of one of the people are showing symptoms, Ardern told a news conference. Before testing positive, 2 of the people traveled to the North Island last weekend and visited tourist attractions.
