50 Things To Keep Busy With While In Lockdown

Helloooooo strangers! I know, I know, I’ve been so slack on the old blog, but I’m back and have a few idea’s for content over the next four weeks. Here in NZ we’re in lockdown/self-isolation for the next month, which means no work for this girl. We are currently day 3 of the 28-day lockdown, and I woke up this morning and thought “I should blog again!” So to begin this 4-week journey, I’ve compiled a list of things that you can do to keep busy and get productive!
