So let’s say…You’re on spring break, all of your friends are vacationing in warm tropical places, and you’re stuck at home, alone. Ugh! What are you going to do for a week?! Don’t worry, I got you covered. 😉
Finally dive into that hobby you’ve been dying to try. Photography? Hand lettering? Scrapbooking? Blogging? Whatever it may be, a week to yourself can be the perfect time to try out that one thing you’ve been wanting to learn how to do for so long. Just grab a laptop, maybe hit up a library with a yummy drink in hand, and get researching!
Treat yourself to a full room makeover. That’s right, go all out with furniture rearrangement, dusting/vacuuming, and new matching accessories. If your room makeover isn’t worthy of a reality TV show, then you’re not doing it right. Maybe this one isn’t for everyone, but I personally LOVE doing room makeovers (it doesn’t even have to be my own room). Gotta love that interior design. 😉 You deserve a clean, stylish bedroom to call your very own!
Catch up on that one really popular show on Netflix so you can stop being the loner who doesn’t know what’s going on. <– I’m always this person! I don’t have Netflix, so I never know any of the popular shows (hello, “Stranger Things” and “Game of Thrones” [and yes, I know that’s on HBO and not Netflix]). Anyway, five days off of school sounds like the perfect time to binge watch your favorite show and develop a couch sore and dreadlocks in the meantime.
Pick up an instrument. As I sit here typing this post and listening to Ed Sheeran, I wonder if I can play “Kiss Me” on my guitar. I am not a musically talented person in any way, but I’m taking a guitar class at my school this semester. Ever since starting, I’ve been trying to learn all of my favorite songs! I encourage you to teach yourself a song or two this spring break. Even if you’re musically challenged like me, it just takes time, patience, and a lot of YouTube videos. It’s always so cool to be able to play your favorite song, plus it’s a fun party trick. 😉
Go shopping. This one is self-explanatory. Retail therapy should always be on your list of things to do. 😉 Plus, it seems like there have been a lot of sales going on lately, so now is a great time to update your spring wardrobe. Today’s outfit is vibing on the spring neutrals, and I love this outfit for a casual day running errands or just hanging out—it screams “desert” to me, anyone else?
Work out. Okay, I know this sounds weird. I mean, who ever wants to work out? But for some reason, I feel more motivated to be active when I have nothing else to do, ya know? As in, I’m just sitting around and am bored, then all of a sudden a run sounds really appetizing. Strange, I get it. This spring break, I’m actually really looking forward to doing lots of sit-ups and squats. I can’t explain it, but I have an urge to work out! (Just give it a day though. Then it’ll be gone and I’ll be back to chocolate on the couch.)
Host your own spa day. Get some mood music, draw a hot bath, throw in one of those fizzy bath balls that are super popular on social media right now, and just relax. Grab your favorite book, paint your nails, add a face mask, light some candles. Mmmm, I feel relaxed already.
Try a new recipe. Okay, for me, any recipe is new because all I know how to cook is microwave corn dogs. Sad, but true. I really want (and need) to learn how to cook, which can be so difficult to do during a busy school week. That’s why you have to take advantage of your time off. Any spring-y foods you’ve been craving lately? Just make sure not to burn down the house, whatever you choose to make. 😉
Catch up on blogs! Haha, shameless plug. But honestly, since starting my own blog in 2016, I’ve really gotten behind on all my favorite bloggers. I love supporting other fashion gals and gaining inspiration, and reading/commenting on my favorite girls’ posts is a great way to build community.
What are your plans for spring break? Are you going anywhere, or just chilling at home? Which one of these ideas would you try? I love hearing from you gals, so leave me a comment below!
Have a great day. 🙂
