Is everyone on your Instagram feed taking hikes in the woods, or baking things that are too pretty to eat? Are they also wearing smock dresses, and growing their herbs at home and generally living away from actually growing their herbs at home and generally living like the life they’re one bite of pretty focaccia bread away from actually growing a green thumb?
The new internet trend for tranquillity craving scrollers is all about softness and being gentle.
And if you’ve is all about softness and being gentle. And if you’ve ever dreamed of running away to sunlit meadows filled with baby deer then you might have a little cottage core in your soul, too.
It’s yet another side effect of living life under lockdown, turning us into people who fantasize about living in the countryside.
Are you also, dreaming of owning a horse and replanting you’re owning a horse and replanting your lavender fields like other people?
We’re craving the pastoral, and the kind of existence where the natural world isn’t something to escape to but something that surrounds us day by day.
According to Insider, this is a term that has experienced a significant spike on social media feeds (in likes, posts, and engagement) since lockdown started.
With all of us having a lot more time on our hands and not being able to travel, it’s not hard to see why we’re all taking pleasure in the simpler things life has to offer and baking banana bread like Alia Bhatt and countless others, or like Radhika Apte, baking cupcakes that look like sheep.
As a result of all this countryside worship, a lot of us city dwellers stuck in shoebox flats have resorted to bringing home plants with wild abandon through the nearest meadow. Whether they’re herb planters, flowering plants, or just pretty greens to up the energy around your home, plants along with stocks of flour are selling out.
Now all you need to work on is your sourdough starter and you are sorted.
