When sheltering in place was announced over a month ago, I told myself I wouldn’t sit around and get nothing accomplished. Aside from writing, spending time with Billy, and working out, I wanted to touch on my creative side—something I rarely have the time to do. I began looking for DIY crafts and discovered 25 that are ideal no matter what your living situation is. From artistic projects and cooking kits to painting and tech, you can do these activities solo, with your significant other or roommates, or with your family. *This article contains some affiliate links.

There’s no doubt this is a challenging time and self-quarantining shouldn’t add to the stress. Whether you’re staying inside with your significant other, multiple family members, or you’re solo—here are 45 things you can do to make the most out of it. Taking A Moment For Yourself Keep a quarantine diary. Jotting down your thoughts can help relieve stress, and years from now it will make an excellent read. You can also use the time to reflect on your favorite childhood memories and write about those. Set aside time for yourself. If you’re home with multiple family members, find an hour a day to escape.
Last week we shared our recommendations on 125+ movies to watch while you’re stuck inside. This week we’re giving you even more options; we’re talking about our go-to TV shows and where to stream them. Plus, we took it a step further and devised a list of every (good) TV show that’s currently on Hulu, Netflix, HBO, Prime, and Showtime. These series are helping to get us through this nightmare! Xo.Kristie Kristie’s List I started watching Shameless on Showtime this past November, but perhaps I should have started sooner. Throughout the years I’ve heard so many things about the Gallagher’s and how this dysfunctional family
During this quarantine, I’ve been trying to keep busy and maintain my normal lifestyle as much as possible. My days consist of working, hanging out with Billy, going for jogs and exercising in my apartment (I’ll be sharing my favorite home workout videos and tips in the coming weeks). Each morning Billy and I choose a film to watch later on in the evening. We go back and forth between films we haven’t seen yet, and our favorite classics. As a way to help deal with boredom from being stuck indoors, Gina and I each came up with a list of ten movie recommendations. These
Like most people, when I’m bored, procrastinating, or in search of inspiration I’ll hop on Instagram and scroll through my feed. One theme that tops my list are images that represent living a bohemian lifestyle. Whether it’s style inspo, vintage shopping, travel, mindfulness, crystals, or decor—these 20 IG accounts are where I’ll head to get my daily dose of free spirit imagery, tips, and motivation which helps me live a more carefree lifestyle. In search of more Insta inspo? Here are 10 accounts worth following that feature style, decor, sunsets, and more. And for those obsessed with the 90s, here’s a list of 20 that
Whether you were a baby or a teen—the 90s were the best decade. Maybe I’m a little biased since I grew up at a time that was much simpler. When notes were passed instead of texts, and shopping meant going to the local mall or looking forward to the latest catalog of dELiA*s arriving in the mail. Summer days were spent outside roller skating and bike riding and not inside on the computer. Recently I wrote about my vacations at the CT shore which got me thinking about this time period and how much I miss it. I did some looking around and found a
We’re halfway through 2019 and I have to admit, for the first time in a while I’m addicted to the TV. It’s not necessarily a good thing, but I’m discovering so many shows that I’m absolutely loving. The kind where I can’t wait for the day to end so I can slip into some comfy lounge wear, grab some snacks, and tune in. I mean, Big Little Lies is back, and we’re getting a dose of nostalgia with the revival of Beverly Hills 90210 and The Hills: New Beginnings! Here are my recommendations on the best TV shows to watch this summer, along with the
Even though we live in Los Angeles where the weather is nice most of the year, during the fall we sometimes just want to stay in, prepare a cup of hot cocoa and do some binge watching. We each chose our five favorite TV shows of all-time and weirdly enough, none of us picked the same one. So when you’re searching for something to watch this season, you have 15 options to choose from! I didn’t watch Oz while it was on TV; years later I caught up with it on HBO GO. I’m a huge fan of The Wire, so when I found out
