Hi Yin! How would you describe what you’re doing in work and life right now?

As an Editorial Assistant at ELLE, I have a serving role. Depending on what my colleagues or managers need in that moment, I have to arrange it. It could be organising meetings, arranging travels or assisting at a shoot. Now, everything is slower. I don't need to rush for appointments, I do yoga and pilates at home, I can only see a few people — and sometimes it does feel isolated. Luckily the friends I am seeing are my dear ones, and I feel like the friendships are going to another level. I like to take long walks or do groceries together. The bright side is that the contact I have is very real.

What's your beauty routine like these days? Has anything changed now that all/most meetings happen on Zoom?

During the first week, I didn't wear any make up — but that didn't last long. I felt so blurry, so I decided to put my regular make up on. I love a bold lip, which instantly brightens up my face. I feel more energised. But it’s still low key: mascara, something for my brows, blusher. That's it!

What’s your favourite home office outfit — whether fully succumbed to comfy or going all out no matter if no one sees it?

I love my pants from The Five. They’re comfy and look so put together (I hope you know what I mean). I wear them with a t-shirt or sweater. When I have a more formal meeting, I wear my beautiful blue top from Maison Cleo pictured above. That blue is amazing. I think pairing it with my vintage Levi's 501s is the best combination. I do think I love to dress up a bit more for myself. I don't want to let myself go laughs.

What do you keep close to your desk to keep you focused (and sane)?

I use my Hay jug everyday. It reminds me to drink a lot of water and it is so beautiful.

And if you do venture out — whether for meetings or for the gym — what do you bring with you everywhere?

I hate using single-use plastic bottles, so I bring my pink Dopper everywhere. And I got a cute Haan hand sanitizer from my friend that smells really good. So, these two things are always in my bag.

What advice would you give someone that’s struggling with working from home — be it a lack of productivity or feeling isolated?

I am lucky that here in the Netherlands it’s not that strict when you compare it to other countries. Here I can see a few people, including one of my colleagues. We’re working together once or twice a week, and this way I don't get too isolated. Talking to your friends, colleagues or families can help a lot — they are also experiencing this. Speaking with other people can open your eyes and make you realise you are not alone.
