Snow Day? Okay! | The Yellow Spectacles

Snow Day? Okay!

February 19, 2018




Snow Day? Okay! The way I see it, you either love a snow day {stuck indoors all & all night} or just the thought drives you to stare-crazy. Me, I fall in-between--I hate it when the weather is so severe that I can't go outside for a brisk walk or anything else---let alone venture out to get the mail.

My shirt can be shopped here!
However, snow days are magical in a sense that simple daily pleasures--an extra cup of morning coffee, catching that one talk show you can never see, organizing that drawer which has been on your to-list since last year, & catching up with other odds n' ends suddenly becomes a welcomed {refreshinging} possibility.  Yes, that's a snow day.




Still looking for things to do on your snow day? Here's how I keep busy & try to be productive--even if it's for the first few hours!



Projects/Creative Activities 


Tackling 1-to 2 hour activities such as organizing a drawer, cleaning out my makeup holders, & crafting something for spring are all little things I like to tinker with on a snowed-in day. For instance, this ore {yeah, for some reason I wanted an ore, lol} was navy & red--I took a snow day and turned the red stripes pink!

Aspen--my Christmas present--I asked for a Dalmatian & well, next time I need to be more Specific! 

Motivation & Reads 


Blogs & other online magazines come in pretty handy on snowy afternoons. Here, it's fun to browse recipes, spring outfits, & crafts you'd like to try. Need a place to start? I wrote a 'Hygge' cozy decor essentials article for Teen Vogue--all items/ideas are spot-on for a snow day! {see Here}

Watching Sex & the City The Movie

Re-Visit Friendly Faces--TV Shows 


Netflix & HULU are no-brainers in bitterly cold weather--however, I recommend re-visiting shows that you once loved, but haven't been on the air in years. Recently, I did this with my {ALL time} favorite show, Ugly Betty. It's been kind-of eye-opening to watch now as in high school/college  {when I originally watched} I was an 'aspiring writer.' However, now, working as a writer watching Betty's journey means something entirely new to me. Yes, Ugly Betty is on HULU.  Oh, & here, I am watching SATC 1 which I always feel makes a good winter movie as it starts off it the summer & ends in the springtime!



Hot Chocolate 


This is probably the second no-brainer, but hot chocolate. Today is the day for a warm, frosty, whip-cream infused cup! I like this recipe from Epicurious as it's relatively healthy.

  1. I love to spend my snow days with cozy tea and hot chocolate and a good book. I especially love it when they end with a walk in the snow! Also, pajamas all day are a must. Enjoy your day! xAllie www.theallthatglittersblog.com

  4. So much envy! I'm in Canada and we've had so much rain the past few days that all the snow is gone. I'm dying for a snow day!
