The city of Melbourne has been forced into a seven-day lockdown due to a population spread in Covid-19.
And on Saturday, former Melbourne resident who became Bryon-Bay’s beauty Madeleine West shared a handy trick to use during the lockdown.
‘HEY MELBOURNE! My UK partner just shared her favorite lockdown hack and I want to share it with you guys, ” the 40-year-old began in an Instagram post.

“ Dress up like you’re going out to lunch / dinner / show / club, put on your favorite dress, slap on your favorite lippy / perfume / cologne, ” she advised.
“Jump in the car, pump up your favorite tunes … then decide,” No, I think I’d rather stay home “and eat noodles on the couch for 2 minutes. “
According to the mother of six, the goal of the hack is to make sure you have some control over the matter and can make your own decisions despite such strange times.

“Sometimes telling yourself you can CHOOSE anything but not do it can be the best,” added the Playing For Keeps star.
Madeleine also shared an inspirational message with Victorians, writing, ‘You got this! Send lots of hugs, warm thoughts and dazzling emojis to all of you. ‘
The former Neighbors star is mom to Phoenix, 13, Hendrix, 10, Xascha, eight, Xanthe, seven, and twins Xahlia and Margaux, four, who she shares with celebrity chef and former husband Shannon Bennett.

In December, before moving to Byron Bay, she confirmed that her mother, Jules, had come to Sydney to spend time with the family after spending months in the fourth stage of the Melbourne lockdown.
Posting a few photos of her mother on Instagram, Madeleine revealed that her daughters had already enjoyed a bond with their grandmother.
“Real proof of the impact of long-term social distance and border closures … when Grandma finally arrives after a whole year away, the six-year-old twin granddaughters will turn her into a human hair salon,” she wrote.
