Likes & Favorites: Quarantine Edition

Hello and welcome to Likes & Favorites: Quarantine Edition. For those of you who are new around here, Likes & Favorites is a category of Ampersand where I round up all the things I’m liking (and, you guessed it, favoriting). You can find all my Likes & Favorites from over the years right here.

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these so it’s long overdue. I’m here to make your quarantine easier/more enjoyable with the roundup of some of my favorite things below. Every item on this list I personally love and have recommended to people (multiple times). Enjoy~

How to Stay Sane in Quarantine

Hey. I’m back. I know, it’s seems like forever since I’ve written. To be honest, it was so long, I forgot my WordPress password. I almost didn’t renew my Ampersandblog.net domain (& did at the very, very last minute). It’s not like I intentionally stopped blogging for any particular reason–it sort of naturally happened. I wasn’t feeling super inspired by anything & was doing a lot of writing (offline ;)). And I didn’t want to force it you know? Blogging has been a hobby and I didn’t want to feel stressed out by it.

But we’re here now! Amidst all the things going on the world, I’ve been drawn to comforting, easy, familiar things (as we probably all have), and I felt like I wanted to blog again. So thanks for bearing with me, for those of you who asked if I still blog, for reading anything I write at all. We’ll see if this becomes a regular thing!

We’re all in quarantine, doing the social distancing~ thing so figured I’d share some tips that have helped me stay (somewhat) sane during the past two weeks. By no means an expert (& always looking for new tips!) but hope this helps even a little bit!

Helllloooo. It has been a WHILE since I’ve done a Likes & Favorites (my last one was in November–I just checked). Between the holidays & my brief blogging hiatus, Likes & Favorites kind of fell through the cracks. But we’re back now & I have a whole bunch of good stuff that I’m liking & hoping you’ll like too.
