American model Devon Windsor stars in the next instalment of our new series of self-isolation diaries, where friends of Bazaar share what they’re eating, reading, watching and wearing at home right now.
“I think this is the perfect time to take care of your mind, body and soul – meditating, working out at home,” Devon tells us. “I’ve also been doing a lot of face masks, body exfoliations, hair masks… I think this is the perfect time for that, and I’ve been loving that aspect of it.”
Alongside focusing on self-care, the 26-year-old – who is currently isolating at home with her husband and sister – has been keeping entertained by playing board games, doing puzzles and cooking, as well as regularly updating her YouTube channel.
“I’ve also been using this free time to not only cook, but I’ve really stepped up my YouTube channel – my vlog game, if you will,” she explains. “I’ve been posting a video almost every other day, whether it’s beauty or my routine, workouts, recipes… I’ve just had a lot of fun filming that.”
Cooking and video-making aside, the model adds that she’s also been using mindfulness and distraction methods as tools to deal with any anxious feelings that have been triggered by the pandemic.

“I have waves of anxiety about the situation and everything going on, especially because I have a swimwear business of my own and it’s a small business – we were supposed to launch our new collection now – so it does give me a lot of anxiety. But I think distracting yourself is the key; not just staring at the news and watching it all day long. It just depresses me. So I like to surround myself with my husband and sister, or chat with friends and play games, and just try to enjoy this time, talking to people and hanging out with your family, as much as you possibly can.”
