My dressing table seems to get cluttered so easily, and its often easy to forget what I own, amongst my ever growing collection. I've sorted through all of my Muji drawers, cleaned them, organised my perfumes and put away skincare that I don't often pick up anymore.
When it comes to clothes, if you're short of 3 friends willing to wait around and vote (a la sex and the city), then you're going to have to be brutal with yourself, especially if you're a horder like me! This guide should help you decide what to keep, and what to get rid of!
I've got quite a few unloved bits for a blog sale/eBay, some bits to give to my mum, and some to give to charity! Win win all round really.
Spring Clean //
Usually, I only really seem to clean when I have lots of important work to do, and am desperately searching for anything to do but face the looming deadline of that dreaded essay. Well exams are over for now, and whilst theres been 'nothing to do' for a while, I've put some loud music on and given the flat a bit of a spring clean. That way, when I have work to do, theres less to distract me!
Play Games //
I live with 2 other people (Well 3, but our other housemate is almost never here, weird), so I pulled us all together for a good old game of Bingo. CostaBingo were kinda enough to send us a fun-time kit, complete with a Pizza Hut voucher and dvd! We managed not to argue, once, and we genuinely had a good laugh! We definitely need to make more of an effort to get off of our computers and have a bit of cosy fun in the lounge.
Get Social //
Call a friend that you've not spoken to a while, who you love dearly but seem to have lost touch with amongst the hustle and bustle of daily life. You might make someones day, and cheer yourself up with a good natter, too!
Watch DVDs //
Grab a bowl of popcorn, a duvet, and a selection of your favourite films. You don't need to feel guilty!
I never feel like I have the time to read. I have a huge stack of books that I'd like to read, but I know how relaxing it can be getting stuck into a book, and how dangerous it can be getting sucked into it - I'm scared I'll get addicted and it'll turn into a huge distraction. But seeing as you're not going anywhere anyway, you might as well read that book you've been meaning to read for ages.
Before I started University, I used to spend so much time watching vlogs and experimenting with new looks. These days I seem to have got myself stuck in a make up rut! If this is you, take some time to have a look whats out there and try out some new looks, you might find that you do suit purple eyeshadow, after all! (I never will).
So, if you've not noticed already, its been snowing quite a lot recently, in some areas, and in some cases, public transport has been cancelled and 'snow days' have been on the increase. Rather than sitting in all day watching Jerermy Kyle and Bargain Hunt - Here are a few ideas that are guaranteed to make you feel better for taking the day off of work.
What do you do when you can't afford to go out, or you're snowed in?
