45 Ways to Maintain your Happiness while Quarantined

Updated: Apr 2, 2020



Hey yall! I have officially been in #QuarantineandChill mode for about 3 weeks now and this ish is REAL! I've been on the fence all week about whether or not I should keep #WorkforceWednesday going since I'm not physically "going" in to work at the moment. I am however, lucky and thankful to be working from home.


I've prayed about it. Talked to my family and friends about it and even had a talk with myself. The conclusion: Fashion doesn't stop so why should I? Today's post features my favorite color, yellow. It represents happiness which I thought would be a perfect representation of what I wish for all of you during this time. I appreciate all of you for allowing me to be a part of your day!



It is critical that we choose to maintain our happiness during this difficult time. Below find 45 ways to maintain your happiness while quarantined. Keep it cool, full of happiness and positive energy! See outfit details below and leave me a comment! I'd love to hear from you.
