Danie-Jade Column: Lockdown made me do it

Danie-Jade talks fashion, heated rollers and becoming a fur mum!

Lockdown is still in place as I write this and many of us are feeling bored, irritated and wishing for
some kind of normality again, myself included.

Whilst on furlough from work, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands which has given me the perfect excuse to try a lot of beauty hacks I’ve never had the time to try, and plenty of opportunities to order new clothes to keep my wardrobe up to date.

I never need an excuse to online shop because I’m always on the look out for new pieces, but when Missguided dropped a new loungewear collection in collaboration with Playboy, I knew I had to grab some pieces.

Loungewear is ideal for lockdown because I couldn’t think of anything worse than wearing jeans round the house as I like to be comfortable, so I got a couple of loungewear dresses/oversized hoodies and I’m quite concerned I’ll never wear normal clothes again.

Super comfortable, ideal for lounging or looking cool for Instagram and they were really affordable. This tie dye oversized hoodie is really on trend right now and ideal for little 5’2″ me because I can
wear it as a dress with trainers for a really casual look.

Now, the beauty hack I thought I’d try was heated rollers. As someone with naturally frizzy/curly hair, I’ve never felt the need to try heated rollers because if I wanted to enhance my curls I would just
use a heated wand – but with lockdown I thought I may as well give it a go.

I washed, brushed and dried my hair before adding the rollers and found them surprisingly easy. I followed a step by step tutorial on YouTube, left them in for 20-25 minutes whilst I did my makeup and they turned out really cute!

They didn’t last terribly long, maybe 2-3 hours max, but they were perfect for my morning of taking new photos for Instagram, which saved me the two hours straightening my hair – a good investment, in my opinion.

Lastly, my cutest lockdown decision was to finally get my fur babies. I’ve wanted bunnies for
ages and when lockdown happened I knew it was time.

As soon as I saw these two in Pets at Home I knew I was walking out with them. Elsa, Aria and I have been inseparable ever since.

Unless you’re an animal lover you’ll never understand this feeling but they’ve honestly completed my life.

They’re a million times better than a new pair of shoes, especially when they jump up for a cuddle in the mornings.

Definitely the best lockdown decision I’ve made!
