  • Hello lovely people,

  • I actually did that first time, hah!

  • I'm one-armed and I still did it!

  • Welcome! If you're new to the channel, hi, I'm Jessica Kellgren-Fozard. I know, it's

  • a tricky surname to pronounce. I make videos about life with a chronic illness and disabilities

  • but sometimes... I don't.

  • Like today's video! (which is sponsored by Surfshark)

  • Today we're going to be studiously ignoring the rising sense of panic we may or may not

  • be feeling-

  • - and if you're feeling like you're 'totally over' this entire thing and just don't

  • care enough to panic any more because you've reached the end of your emotional bandwidth

  • then that's a completely valid feeling too.

  • I haven't left my house in over a month with the exception of some fun car journeys

  • around the neighbourhood andback to my house. So I thought I'd throw together a

  • list of things that I've been enjoying and in the comments you can share your own lists

  • and we'll help each other out by spreading some joy

  • [Disney princess sigh]

  • - wow, sometimes I'm like a parody of myself

  • Moving swiftly on and in no real order despite the fact that I've put them in numerical

  • descending order:

  • 10. Having my best friend around to hang out with every day! I'm a very fortunate human

  • in that I'm married to my BFF and she lives with me so we get to have fun together every

  • single day and don't ever have to be in different rooms or more than a meter apart

  • because she used to go to work and that sucked because we don't really like being away

  • from each other for more than five minutes and yes that is the most lesbian thing ever.

  • - but did I mention she's really cool…?

  • So number 10 is just 'codependency' and I'm okay with that.

  • 9. Making IGTV videos.

  • - Who knew?!

  • I completely poo-poo-ed IGTV when it first came out and there are still many things I

  • find annoying about it (it still doesn't have integrated captionswhy?) but since

  • lockdown started I've found it much easier to work up the creative juices to make short

  • form, fun, cute little videos on IGTV

  • - if you're not already following me on Instagram my handle is @jessicaoutofthecloset

  • I think it's partly because I feel more pressure when it comes to long form video

  • content like this. I want to talk about the current situation but at the same time I don't,

  • I just want to carry on as normal, but then wouldn't it be weird to carry on as normal

  • and not reference anything…? Like the fact that I'm wearing a sling?

  • I dislocated my shoulder a lot in the last week.

  • And at the same time, there is just so much going on in my head right now, it's hard

  • to be creative and have the bandwidth to make things. But also this is my job so I can't

  • tell my boss that I want to miss one of my twice weekly uploads, even though my boss

  • is me, but also you, but at the same time creating things makes me happy and gives a

  • structure to my week.

  • So making cute IGTVs sparks my creativity for longer things like this, which is pretty

  • great when you think about it!

  • 8. Watermelon Gloop. I amnot a super make-up obsessed person. I think we all know by now

  • that my grasp of skincare routines is slim. And I've seen lots of IGTV make up videos

  • that feature gloop in pipettes and never once wanted to have my own but then Becca Cosmetics

  • sent me this glow nectar and I am in love.

  • - Not just because it's sparkly gloop. I swear I do actually have more nuance than

  • a magpie.

  • It's really lightweight, it smells delicious and my skin loves it.

  • Also it means I get to say the word 'gloop' over and over, which is excellent.

  • Gloop!

  • See...

  • 7. Grey's Anatomy. Have I mentioned Grey's Anatomy enough in recent videos? Yes? Well

  • that's okay then because I'm going to talk about Private Practice. Private Practice

  • is a spin off from Grey's Anatomy featuring Addison Montgomery,

  • formerly Addison Montgomery-Shepherd,

  • who was a pretty kick ass neonatal surgeon on Grey's Anatomy but then got her own show

  • Private Practice, where she was also a kick ass neonatal surgeon. That's the kind of

  • thing they say on the show:

  • 'kick ass', because they are American.

  • She's one of my favourite characters AND apparently there are a lot of character crossovers

  • so it's really important that I watch all of Private Practice so it can feed into my

  • Grey's Anatomy addiction. BUT unfortunately Private Practice ended in 2013 which means

  • it's pretty difficult to find online

  • Happily though I have a solution in today's sponsor, Surfshark.

  • Surfshark is a VPN app and browser extension that allows you to access the internet safely

  • AND without barriers. A Virtual Private Network encrypts your data when you log on to public

  • wifi, meaning that hackers can't gain access. It also hides your IP meaning you can set

  • your location to anywhere in the world and thus watch videos that are available in those

  • countries but aren't in yourslike Private Practice on American Netflix.

  • - Because we all need Addison Montgomery in our lives.

  • You'll also be able to unlock some great content that's here on YouTube, no matter

  • which device you're watching from because Surfshark's VPN because it's the only

  • one that lets you use one account across unlimited devices. Meaning I can watch Private Practice

  • on my phone, my ipad, my laptop AND my desktop!

  • As great as it is to have access to my favourite TV shows, a VPN also adds an extra layer of

  • security when you're online: keeping all of your passwords, photos and videos safe.

  • And it's not just malicious data stealing that you'll be protected from, Surfshark

  • will also defend you from tracking, surveillance and commercial targeting! No malware, no phishing,

  • no insecurity when you're online banking, lots of medical related dramas.

  • - not sure you'll find one about dentists but let me know if you do!

  • Just click the link in the description of this video and use code JESSICA for 83% off

  • plus one extra month for free! AND Surfshark offers a 30-day money-back guarantee so there's

  • really no harm in trying it...

  • 6. This Tree. It's a really cool tree. We haven't lived in the new house for 12 months

  • yet so it's lovely to see the garden going through all of the seasons. Plus the garden

  • is really important to us when we're on lockdown and our house looks like this

  • The end of the garden means a lot to us right now and this tree in particular is very special.

  • I've always wanted to own a tree, particularly one that's older than I am, and this one

  • is a beauty. I loved sitting in its shade last summer and watching the leaves go brown

  • in autumn. I waited all winter for it to come back to life and this spring I've learned

  • that it has blossoms in this funny yellow-y colour.

  • I would like to put a circular bench under the tree and turn the space behind it into

  • a special area for my roses.

  • The garden is our next project!

  • Obviously.

  • Once everything is out of it.

  • 5. This cape is finally getting an outing. My good friend Jenny gave me this vintage

  • nurse's cape because she knew I would give it love and I've been waiting for just the

  • right time to use it. And now it has been given a chance to go to work as you saw in

  • my Coronavirus Myth Busting video! Congratulations cape, you've made it.

  • 4. Besame highlighter. I'm not normally a highlighter person. I may be such a 'not

  • highlighter person' that you can't see the highlighter I've put on my face

  • It's not a lot of highlighter okay but is there, just believe it;s there

  • Can you see it? Can you see it?

  • Can you see it?!

  • It's there, ok.

  • Highlighter scares me a little and so I only put a tiny bit on.

  • But I've decided I like highlighter

  • now and I like this one the best. This little beauty is from Besame's limited edition

  • Mermaid Lagoon collection. They make really amazing ranges based on vintage Disney properties

  • like the Sleeping Beauty palette I showed you in December but this is one of my absolute

  • favorites.

  • It's so cute!

  • 3. Having a really good excuse to order takeaway. I get weird about foodand it's cost

  • sometimes. It's- it's a thing.

  • I will waste my time working out which box of apples

  • is 0.003p cheaper and then go for that one even though I actually like the other one

  • better.

  • But hey, there's a massive global drama going on and I have much bigger things to

  • worry about so apparently I'm just really appreciating an excuse to put this one hang

  • up on hold! [relieved sigh]

  • Also this is what my kitchen looks like right now and getting groceries is a little eh AHH

  • But definitely better than before, thank you to everyone who helped us with solutions) so

  • I really don't have the space to be choosy about where my food is coming from or panic

  • too much about the cost. I can just focus on looking after myself and if I'm too stressed

  • about potentially getting ill to cook and my wife is too stressed about me potentially

  • getting ill to cook then yay there are many restaurants currently delivering.

  • Self-care is important.

  • - But a tiny bit of me deep inside wants to yell 'First World Problems!' and then

  • run away

  • It's just a tiny bit though soprogress?

  • Please order often from your local Chinese owned businesses because they are not doing

  • so well right now. Thanks.

  • 2. People respect our healthcare professionals more. As someone whose continued existence

  • is very much thanks to the National Health Service and comes from a medical family and

  • is married to an NHS worker, I have a deep respect for those in the medical field especially

  • at times like these. We often hear politicians talking about cuts to the NHS like it's

  • just something tiny and insignificant and we have to get over it

  • but it's a vital part of the UK and we're

  • very lucky to have it.

  • If there is one sure good thing to come out of the coronavirus it's a renewed appreciation

  • for healthcare professionals and those who support them.

  • As such, on the 30th April I'm going to be taking part in a huge fundraising livestream

  • with many other YouTubers to raise money for the NHS. It will be available to everyone

  • for free on the YouTube Originals channel. There will be lots of challenges, performances

  • and surprises from 4 until 8pm!

  • I'll keep you updated on Twitter but make sure you subscribe to the YouTube Originals

  • channel and turn on notification so you don't miss it.

  • 1. Walter and Tilly. Thank you to my dogs for doubling the number of souls living in

  • my house right now and being a great source of inspiration andcomic relief. Mainly

  • that. Sometimes I'll just be standing there brushing my teeth, and I turn around to see

  • Walter (who moves completely silently) standing there glaring at me from the dark like a furry

  • waxwork Dobbie the Houseelf. And then I scream in surprise! But then I laugh so

  • - I guess that's more of a horror movie than a comedy.

  • But they are also really, really cute. So please enjoy a montage of my dogs

  • [happy jazz music]

  • Thank you so much for watching this video, even if it was essentially a glorified favourites

  • video. I hope you've really enjoyed it. I release new videos on Tuesdays and Fridays

  • so I'll see you in my next one.
