Creativity in the times of Covid

Hello again! Today I am covering the letter C in my lockdown alphabet series, and guess what C stands for? C stands for the joy of creativity we got from pursuing our hobbies during this stay at home period. Several people rediscovered their passion towards baking, reading, painting, blogging and other creative activities during this time. I would definitely say this was one of the biggest silver linings during the Covid lockdowns for everyone around the world.  Why creative hobbies spiked during Covid?  The lockdown resulted in the rise of two things – boredom and anxiety.

To celebrate my love for fall, I have put together a fall fashion mood board which will give you some ideas on how to update your wardrobe for the coming season.
