My Life in Isolation: Chloe Lloyd

Chloe Lloyd is a British model and influencer. She lives with her husband Josh Cuthbert in a village in Surrey, just outside of London. We caught up with Chloe to find out about her life in isolation…

Where do you live? What does isolation look like for you there? How has your local community been affected?

I live about 40 minutes from London. I feel so lucky to be able to have open spaces to explore as I know some are not so lucky. I’m missing all of the lovely local pubs and restaurants, our local pub has started delivering fruit & vegetables which I’ve been ordering to try and support. I’d hate to see any of our local businesses closing down. 

Can you talk us through your daily routine in isolation? 

 Every day is different depending on if I have any work to do or not. In the first few weeks I really took the situation under my wing and enjoyed learning new cooking skills and being productive. However recently I’ve been itching for this to be over and had such a lack of energy. Every day is different though! My favourite part of the week is my trip to the supermarket for supplies! (Wine)

How has your life changed since being in isolation?

A lot! As I’m sure everyone’s has. I miss my friends, family, restaurants & job! I had a very exciting project that was meant to be coming out right now but has of course had to be postponed which has been gutting. However we are doing this for the greater good and to save lives! It is way more important than a small break in programming and something we’re all going through. 

What has been the biggest lesson you’ve learnt during this time?

I think I already knew that family and health are the most important thing so maybe for me it’s how much I depend on and enjoy being independent and doing the things that make me, me! Staying creative in isolation has definitely helped with that. 

What are your self-care tips at home?

 Lots of hair masks, face masks. Copious baths. Wine. Food. You don’t need to be a work out queen if it’s not your thing – but if it is do that! Oh and don’t spend too much time on social media it’ll drive you crazy. 

What advice would you give to others that may be struggling?

That this too will pass. Always ask for help.
