What are you favourite ways to stay in touch with friends and family right now?
It has been a real mixture. At the start of lockdown, I downloaded the House Party App and did a lot of groups and individuals video calls with family and friends via the app. As the weeks have gone by, it has been more group video calls and direct voice calls with people.
What’s the best virtual party/Zoom call you’ve been to recently?
Every Friday night since the beginning of lockdown there is a virtual pub night on zoom that I have been attending. We have a mixologist and every Wednesday he sends us the ingredients list, as well as a step by step video on how to make the cocktail of the week, so come Friday we can all sip our cocktails together. Let’s just say, it’s just as well we are all already at home - there have been some messy Friday nights!
What can we do if we’re feeling lonely?
I would recommend giving someone a call, or text someone and find out if they are free for a chat. If you do not have anyone you can call, there are lots of organisations you can contact that can help. The only way we can all get through this is by connecting with people, talking through your feelings.
How are you having fun with your Social Media accounts during lockdown?
I am really enjoying the Instagram live content especially the ones that brands are doing. From quiz nights to parties and yoga, the lifestyle content is great! I hope it continues after normal life resumes.
What are you most looking forward to when normal life resumes?
Going to the hairdressers and getting a haircut, visiting family and going to one of my favourite restaurants and bars. In that order LOL!
