I don't know about you, but the snow in Boston is really coming down and the forecast says it's not going to stop anytime soon. What do I do on snow days? Well I used to pray for them every night and go through the typical rituals of course. You know, spoon under your pillow, pajamas on inside-out, and your boots under your bed. Now that I'm a working adult, snow days aren't as exciting, but working at home can have it's perks! Regardless of your situation, follow these tips for a successful snow day:
If you're going to be outside:
* Wear hats and mittens - I can't tell you how frustrating it is when I see people without these items. Hats are so crucial to keeping body heat and if your excuse for mittens is because you can't use your phone then you have been living under a rock. They make finger-less gloves and gloves with special tips for texting.
* Scarves - Scarves are such a cute way to layer and accessorize a winter outfit. I'm still crushing on infinity scarves because they look effortless and you don't have to worry about figuring out how to tie them. A definite must for any outdoor snow day activities.
If you're going to be inside:
* Find a cozy blanket - There is nothing better on a snow day than curling up in front of the TV or fireplace and relaxing. Make sure you have a great blanket to keep you warm and cuddly. I find that the softer the better on cold days. The softer it feels the more luxurious your day off is right?
* Mugs - While you're at it, you should invest in a quality mug. I'm talking something really well-made and decorative. Hot coco, tea and coffee have never tasted better.
*Books- It doesn't matter if you're reading a book or writing in one, you should always have one for a snow day. Movies are great but for big storms, you'll want to stimulate your brain. Get creative and write a poem, or get lost in a book full of great characters. Either way you're sure to be entertained.
