These past few weeks, as the sun sets earlier and the nights get colder, I am always looking for the best ways to keep my mood and energy up.
Make a fort with pillows and sheets as your spiked apple cider or pumpkin spiced lattes brew in the crockpot.
One of my favorite activities is a boho sleepover. If a road trip in the fall or winter months seems like too much, opt for an amazing staycation instead.
You may be asking yourself, what in the world is a staycation? It’s simple and can be one of two things. One, you stay at your own home and pretend you’re on vacation or two, you stay at a hotel within 30 minutes of your home.
Then you go and have FUN as though you’re on a real vacation! If you’re at a hotel, you can go swimming in their indoor pool or partake in dreamy room service. At home? Make a fort with pillows and sheets as your spiked apple cider or pumpkin spiced lattes brew in the crockpot.
Don’t forget your essentials:
• A Bohemian playlist (with covers of your favorite songs). Think Don’t You Want Me sung by The Bahamas or Latch Acoustic by Sam Smith
• Tons of funky yoga leggings, long sweaters, scarfs and mala beads to doll yourself up. Maybe even a fabulous floppy hat!
• Money for a fabulous brunch (even if you choose the at home option, brunch is a must).
• A travel guide. This may be the city you grew up in, but viewing it from the eyes of a tourist will entirely flip your perspective. Bonus points if you ask someone on the street their favorite restaurant or tourist activity!
• Plenty of time for catching up.
• Healthy snacks. Think homemade cocoa granola, pumpkin bars and dried fruits.
• Goodie bags. You may not be driving, but who doesn’t love a goodie bag? Add in your favorite EOS lip balm, dark chocolate with sea salt, essential oils for your water and an invitation to play ultimate truth or dare.
I hope you have a blast! Leave a comment below and let me know where you’re going or if you’ve ever been on a staycation before.
