Ladies and gentlemen, this is Lockdown Number 5!

Well here we are; the Melbourne weather doing its darnedest to keep us inside, the Premiers throwing shade in Pressers and a lot of extra time on our hands. I’m choosing to see it as an opportunity for a Hot Girl Winter Bootcamp. Can you use it for the greater good too?

“From now on, we’re alternating Cindy Crawford’s ‘Aerobicise’ and ‘Buns of Steel,’ and reading one non-school book a week. My first book is “Fit or Fat”. Cher Horowitz: Clueless.

While we’re still waiting on Cher’s wardrobe technology from the film, we can follow her sound self-improvement advice. I am alternating Action Jacquelyn’s Ballet Body Bootcamp with Move with Nicole’s Pilates videos. My first book is, “Rich as F#ck: More money than you know what to do with” by Amanda Frances.

“Bow your head but move your feet”. Amanda Frances

It’s important to do the external and internal work simultaneously so I’m exercising and reading and also journaling and listening to subliminal soundtracks.

Subliminal (audio) messages are affirmations that bypass your conscious mind and go straight into your subconscious. These hidden positive affirmations are embedded in the music, just below your hearing level. Because your conscious mind is not aware of the subliminal suggestions underlying the music, it can’t put up barriers against it. That’s why subliminal affirmations avoid any resistance, which would usually hold you back.

I’ve been enjoying falling asleep to ’10 Hour Rain Sound Sleep Subliminal Sessions” on YouTube with topics like, “Law of Attraction-Get what you Want”. At the very least, they are relaxing but they could also be pepping me up. I’ve started to listen to some other playlists in the background while I’m working etc. and there are many to choose from including “Glow Up” and “Hour Glass Figure”. They mostly have nature sounds or instrumental music underneath so are just like having the radio on. Watch this space to see if it helps me become Slim Thick!

What are you enjoying this lockdown dear reader?

Much love and Happy Hot Girl Winter xoxo Yvette

Hi guyz! I’m Yvette. I love to write about all things Minimalism, Mindfulness and Melbourne. The woo-woo makes me go woo-hoo! Much love xoxo @ me at


  1. Bestest luck down there Elsie/Yvette!!! Tis bitter cold up here too. Snow feeling in the air. I’m currently livin on the ‘rock n roll’, reading my gay history and self help books (I’m up to speed with Will Young and his travails thanks to his brilliant memoir), journalling my ground breaking, profound thoughts ala Helen Garner and running for my life through the terraced hills of Paddington and the grassy knolls of Centennial Park. An expert said on the ABC this morning that it (our lockdown) will have to last till THE END OF BLOODY AUGUST!! Meanwhile we wait, patiently, for our Glad… Dave xx

    1. Oh wow! The weather keeping us all housebound even in usually sunny Sydney. I’m happy to hear you’re using your time well to get a monkey grip on gay idols whilst jogging the moors. Poor old Glad…Dan tells us Melbourne is going to do it hard and fast ☺️. Stay strong 💪 and sign on xoxo 💋 Yvette


  2. Great post Yvette! I’m enjoying Basque Cheesecakes from Gertrude St this lockdown, which will surely assist with my “hourglass figure”?!
