Snowed In? Here Are Some Things to Keep You Busy.

Depending on where you live everyday isn’t going to be perfect weather… especially if you live in Connecticut.  This time of year things can get pretty nasty and snow storms can leave you stuck at home from school or work alone with nothing to do.  A few things we like to do when we’re stuck at home…

Make Cupcakes!

Okay maybe this one was pretty obvious considering who it’s coming from <3  The good thing about making these tasty treats is you can be creative when decorating them {which is the best part!}  Use candy, sprinkles, fruit, or whatever else you have laying around the house that’s yummy!  Share them later on with your friends or family<3

Pamper yourself!

Why not enjoy and treat yourself to a spa day at home?  Give yourself a mini facial!

What you’ll need: A deep cleanser, towel, bowl of hot water, a face mask and a face moisturizer.

  • First you’ll need to cleanse your face with a deep cleanser to clear the pores.
  • Pat face dry with a towel.
  • Next use the towel and dip it in the bowl of hot water and wring out…place towel over face to open up the pores to allow for the mask to penetrate deeply. Sit for a few minutes.
  • Apply mask all over face and wait for time directed, and clean off with warm damp towel.

Clean house!

The space you live in has an impact on how you feel… {considering you probably spend a lot of time there}.  If you’re looking for something to do while the cupcakes bake ;) then organize your living area.  Tidy up your closet, organize your music, decorate your room differently… whatever makes your space more comfy.

Curl Up & Watch Movies!

We looove movies — all kids of movies. Thriller, Action, Comedy, Chick Flicks… So snow days are an excellent excuse for us to cocoon ourselves in warm, fuzzy blankets, make some hot chocolate and popcorn, and pop in our favorite movies. Snuggle up with your boy/girlfriend or a pet, or invite your best friend over and have a movie marathon!

Relax.

Try lighting some candles and meditating for a good hour or so, just to clear your mind and de-stress. Try some Yoga stretches, even if you’ve never done Yoga before. You can easily find hundreds of videos on YouTube showing you how to do some basic Yoga stretches, though they work best if you already have a Yoga mat.

Most importantly, have fun on your day off!
