The alternative blog for cruelty free skincare, veggie food and alt/geek culture

6 bonus things that have happened during quarantine:

  1. I’ve not washed my hair for two weeks (there’s only a bath where I am) and it feels and looks so naturally healthy, in shiny defined waves.
  2. I’ve not impulse bought food with wheat or dairy in so my nose, chin and tummy aren’t puffy/bloated. I have more energy and feel more upbeat and I love my features now!
  3. My skin is so healthy because I’ve been sticking to my skincare regimen.
  4. Me and the bloke have not killed each other.
  5. Meal planning doesn’t suck. It takes the stress of decision making away (a supermarket full of food yet you still come home with random shit that doesn’t make any recognisable dishes, sound familiar?) and isn’t boring or restrictive. As long as you plan enough meals to give you a choice and don’t have specific days where you have to eat them, it’s just like choosing from a menu.
  6. If you make a curry too hot and don’t have any yoghurt or cream (or dairy free versions) to swirl in it, you can add mayonnaise, so creamy!

What have been your positive quarantine effects?

    That’s amazing that your hair has improved so much by *not* washing it. I would’ve never thought to put mayo in curry to make it creamy. Interesting!

      Some kinds of hair just don’t like the chemicals that are products and it prefers to be left the hell alone, ha! Yup but very plain mayo though, not burger sauce or yoghurt and mint mayo etc. 🤢

    I like your frames, Chrissie! Glad to hear you’re doing well! So far we are doing ok too. Eating through our pantry. One thing I’m wishing for is a bread maker. And ingredients for baking.

      Thanks hon, I got two for one ages ago from Boots. Glad you and yours are all well. I miss baking with my Ma as a kid (cheese straws lol). Well, you can make flat bread with just flour and a sweet potato!

        Part of the problem is the cupboard is getting thin. Need to get out there and restock. Cheese straws sound delicious and flat bread too! Comfort foods. Stay safe.
