Staying in this weekend? With the American Thanksgiving just around the corner the start of the holiday season is upon us, what better way to prepare the to have a stay in weekend.
This weekend is perfect to just sit back and relax, the house is sparkling clean, I don’t have to worry about cooking, there really isn’t much that I need to get done- other than blog-related work, which I love to do and I really consider to be a pleasure, rather than a responsibility. Here is what you need to have the perfect stay in weekend:
If there is one thing that I wish I had more time to do, it’s reading. Reading is probably one of the easiest and simple ways to relax and unwind. I know the movie for this just came out but I have been dying to read this book and this weekend I intend to start.
When planning a staycation, movies are always a must. I love having long marathons of some classics. I also love the fact that I can rent newly released movies on my TV. And then, of course, there’s Netflix! A weekend in is a great time to start a new series.
Okay you guys know how I love my coffee, and especially on the weekend. Rather than drinking it in a hurry like I usually do during the week, I take my time and enjoy every sip. I’ll usually send my hubby to get us some coffee from my favorite local place.
With the holidays coming up I am sure we will all have tons of cookies and sweets so this weekend I am going to stock up healthy snacks. Since I plan on staying in I won't be as active so I am going to go for more light snack like, orange wedges, grapes, veggies and dip and this light flat bread and maybe a couple of treats. Avoiding all the sweets and junk food will help not to feel tired and sluggish by the end of the weekend.
A little weekend pampering always helps me de-stress. I love painting my nails and find it strangely soothing- I think it might because I can’t reach for my phone while I paint my nails and they dry so it is really a great time to disconnect.
And what’s a little pamper session without a face mask, am I right?
Because cozy weekend-in also calls for cuddles!
These days all my magazines are on my Ipad, I feel like I cant keep up sometimes with all the issues and magazines out there even though I love reading them all I don’t always have the time. Perfect weekend for catching up on the latest trends.
I can just picture t now, the fireplace is on and I am wrapped in the coziest blanket cuddled up by my hubby and a glass of wine in hand. Wine is a must have on any stay in weekend.
