10 Things To Do This Weekend

July 15, 2016


I typically try to fill my weekends with 50% fun and 50% functional. Don't get me wrong, I love to go have a blast and relax, but there's always some sort of chore, home project etc. included in the mix. Am I right? Well, today I have 10 fun and beneficial ideas for your weekend and you don't want to miss it!




1. DIY Candles in pottery, teacups or ANYTHING! Check out this tutorial and get your candle on.




2. Reorganize one section of your home and pick up the book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I'm doing the same!



3. While you're at the bookstore, pick up a good coffee table book AND read. I suggest Emily Henderson's book (pictured here): Styled: Secrets for Arranging Rooms from Tabletops to Bookshelves. This book is hands down my favorite because of how she breaks down her stylist/interior design masterskills in relatable and fun way - you can learn a lot from this book! It's not every day I find a coffee table book that is equally visually appealing and informative. Go get you some!





4. Watch/read a flower arranging tutorial, pick up your own stems and create your own bouquet. This is something I've wanted to do for a while and never take the time to. It's fun to brush up on your skills + flower arranging is totally therapeutic in my book.




5. Bake a messy/pretty Naked Cake. Another one I've had on my weekend to do list for months. You know, those really pretty yet really messy and imperfect looking cakes with flowers on top? Yeah, those. Here's an awesome recipe (complete with flowers + berries on top!) 

6. Get your girls together for a boozy brunch. Drunk mani/pedis or blow outs optional!


7. Master 1-2 beauty tricks you've been putting off

8. Give yourself a spa night at home (with wine, duh). I have listed my favorite pampering products below:




9. Make these gorgeous (and I'm sure delicious) strawberry white chocolate popsicles.

10. Re-style/decorate one small area/piece of furniture in your home. Whether you chose your mantle, coffee table, console, or even nightstand, be sure to take it one small area at a time. I've definitely been in the situation where I started one small area and before I knew it, I spent the rest of the day restyling 2 out of our 3 bedrooms and more. So just know your limit.



What are your weekend plans? Fitting any of these in? Let me know in the comments below :)

  2. Such a cute post and great ideas! I love spending some time pampering myself at home, reading a good book, testing a new recipe or reorganising my home are things that I do pretty much almost every weekend. :)

  7. I love your blue couch!!! Such a great colour! The 50-50 idea is great too- I always wonder how much of people's weekends are brunching and watching Netflix vs getting the chores done. :)
