I was snowed in at home all of the last week, and while at first, I was super excited to have days off school, I quickly became bored out of my mind. Where I live in NC we've gotten mostly ice, so there's been barely any actual snow to play with. I'm sure a lot of you are as stir crazy as I am, so here are a few things to keep you entertained!

1. Start a New TV Show
I recommend Gossip Girl if you haven't seen it already, One Tree Hill, and Gilmore Girls. These are all shows that I've seen, loved, and re-watched. 

2. Read a Book
Whether it an oldie or a new recommendation (see mine here) reading is always a good way to spend time. Many states have digital public libraries where you can check out books for free with your library card, or there's always iBooks, Nook, Kindle, etc.

3. Organize your Closet/Makeup Collection
There's no better time to organize, than when you are stuck at home with no escape. Go through all of your clothes, toss some, donate some, give some to a friend, etc. Once you have only the clothes you are keeping, arrange them by color, type, season, whatever you prefer. At the end of it all, you will feel great and accomplished.

4. Discover New Music
Spotify and Pandora are two great ways to discover new music. Text your friends and ask for recommendations, or create a station based on your favorite song. The world is filled with so much that you're guaranteed to find someone you love.

5. Watch a Movie
Either a throwback to your childhood or the latest RomCom on Netflix, a movie is a great way to stay entertained for at least 2 hours. Personally, I had a Twilight marathon during my days off, as well as watched The Proposal and Valentine's Day.

6. Experiment with Makeup/Clothes
Being stuck at home is the perfect opportunity to play with makeup, maybe create a new everyday look. It's also a great chance to take a look at your wardrobe and put together some new outfits!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Leave me a comment letting me know what you did during your snow days!

Hello friends! Where I live we've gotten about an inch of snow, which means no school (I know, we have it easy). I thought I would take advantage of my days off and show you an outfit I've been loving.

Sweater: Old Navy (old)     Skirt: J.Crew Factory     Earrings: Kendra Scott     Vest: Old Navy     Necklace: ILoveJewelry     Boots: Hunter

P.S. Shoutout to my sister for braving the cold and taking these pictures <3

Book Recommendations

February 16, 2015
Hello! One of my goals for the new year is to try and read more. When I was younger I used to read all the time, I'd go to the library, check out 4 books, and be back a few days later. I've gotten so busy lately, that reading for pleasure has become less of a priority. In the past month and a half, I've read 5 new books, and reread a few old favorites. Today I want to share with you all some recommendations!

Warm Winter Days
