Men’s Folio’s top picks to uplift yourself during MCO

With the outbreak of COVID-19, things are no longer be the same, or at least, there are changing. From Saint Laurent sleeping mask and Foreo Bear Set to Ruby Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Uraga and Animal Crossing Game, these are what we can’t live without during social distancing, something that will definitely uplift your mood too.

“I surround myself with things that inspire me – and give me comfort. And I prefer them to be in black, white or both. Black makes everything appear powerful and elegant whereas white is fraught with tranquility.”

“I realised that despite being an extrovert, I suit well as a homebody. My go-to coping mechanism includes lots of simple cooking, a good beauty routine (both facial and bath) and Netflix all the way.”

“Being surrounded by greenery, be it olfactorily or auditorily, is not only good for unwinding, but it also gives me a feeling of being outdoors. Aesop shower gel and Louis Vuitton perfumed candle fulfil the needs.”

“Since I am spending too much time at home like everyone else during these unprecedented times, I just want everything to be as cosy, practical, effortless and minimalistic looking as they can be. Also, the reason being my place is high above the ground, a little green in the room helps to keep myself calm.”
