5 Things To Do At Home On A Snow Day

2.27.2018


If you're from England like myself, then you know that we don't get snow often. We don't deal with the snow the same way that Canadians do in winter, no, instead it feels like the world has stopped around us all because of a few inches of snow. But hey, I'm not complaining. I love how pretty the sky looks when the snow is falling and the ground is covered in a giant white sheet of fluffy ice, but if it stops me from being able to go out and do something, then yes I am annoyed. So if you're currently stuck indoors because school has been cancelled, you can't get to work or you just don't know what to do then here's five things to do at home to keep you busy!

Bake Some Goodies -
There's nothing better than the smell of cookies or pastries in the oven when it's cold and all you can think about is ways to make your house feel like home. So whip out your favourite recipe book, find some inspo on Pinterest and get your baking game on. If you have some relatives that live close by and in walking distance, why not throw on some wellies, give them a visit and share some of these delights with them whilst chatting over coffee? sounds perfect to me.

Make A Playlist -
If you're going to be trapped inside all day you may as well make it worth while right? Find some new artists or gather up some old favourites and make a giant playlist of good tunes and dance the day away. Better yet, throw this playlist on while you do some baking like I mentioned above and really have a good time. My favourite artists to listen to on days like today are most definitely Harry Styles, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Nesbitt. OH, and I'll also play "How long will I love you" by Jon Boden any chance I get.

Watch Your Favourite Movies -
and watch them back to back! I love watching my favourite movies on a dull day, so a snow day is the perfect opportunity to do so as well. I recently wrote a post about my all time favourite movies which you can read here, all of these are really cosy films so you're bound to love them just as much as I do especially on days like today.

Drink Tons Of Coffee - 
or tea, whatever you need to keep you going without freezing. Flavoured coffees are an absolute must for me, as I love experimenting with new ways to make my coffee as well as trying out all kinds of flavours that the coffee world has to offer. I've been loving Beanies coffee for a few months now and it's definitely made my coffee drinking during autumn and winter a lot more fun. My favourite of theirs is "nutty hazelnut" you've got to try it if you haven't already. Mix it with some hazelnut or almond milk and you have a dream cup of coffee waiting to be consumed. This also isn't sponsored by Beanies, I just really love their coffee. There's also a ton of different coffee ideas on Pinterest if you want to get fancy and practise your barista skills.

De-clutter -
Organize your wardrobe, clean a room in your house, or all of them! Throw out any unwanted things or just get the things done that you've been putting off for weeks. Now is the perfect chance to get everything sorted if you feel like getting productive. Even if it's something as simple as replying to emails or organising your weekly calendar. You've got this.

There's so much that you can get done at home without even realising and if you think you're going to get bored then now is a great time to find a new hobby and enjoy spending time at home. I'm currently feeling super cosy, sipping on some caramel flavoured coffee, sitting next to my boyfriend, writing this post for you lovelies and getting excited about even more snow that we're supposed to be getting. Although, if it sticks around too long I know I'm going to get annoyed as I'm not one for feeling cold, Summer where you at?

What's your favourite season?
Love always,
Shannon

  3. I feel like this post is so fitting for the majority of people in the UK at the moment, but I haven't seen even the tiniest bit of snow! Baking some goodies and enjoying them with the biggest hot chocolate does sound like the best way to enjoy a day of being snowed in!
