You’ll want to make the most of your weekends because they’re so valuable. You’ve undoubtedly worked all week with one goal in mind: to get to a fun-filled weekend and then do something productive with it! When you get to the weekend, though, it generally fizzles out and fails to live up to your expectations. After the Dalgona coffee, plantito and plantita craze, and one too many Netflix shows, what else is there to do?
6 Quarantivities you Can Do for a Fun-filled Weekend
Want a productive weekend, but struggling for ideas? Here’s a roundup of six fun quarantivities to try to help your weekend be something other than just time away from work.
1) Get Creative
Have you been wanting to get your creative juices flowing but don’t know where to start? Art Bar and National Bookstore have everything you need to begin your artistic journey. Paint, scrapbook, or journal your heart away with their collection of art materials and school supplies. A creative outlet can do wonders for our mental health. Plus, you’ll never know when inspiration strikes.
2) Turn Your Home Into a Gym
Does the lockdown make you miss going to a gym? We know the feeling. Fortunately, you don’t have to go outside to stay fit. Chris Sports has every kind of workout equipment to help you start building a home gym.
3) Immerse Yourself in a Book
If you want to escape from the world and all its stressors, there’s no better way to do it than by reveling in a good book. Immerse yourself in Fully Booked’s vast collection of fantasy novels, non-fiction books, young adult series, and more.
4) Have a Fancy Intimate Dinner
Who says you can’t have a five-star dinner at home? If you can’t go to a fancy restaurant, then bring the fancy restaurant to you. For those who have a knack for creating in the kitchen, this is the perfect weekend activity to bring your family closer than ever. Plus, you won’t have to wait in line or deal with traffic. The Metro Supermarket has just about everything you need, from fresh vegetables to delicious meats. To take it up a notch, try your hand at tablescaping with crockery and decorative pieces from H&M home, Metro Department Store, and Rustan’s. Add a few wine bottles, your most lavish looks — you’ll wonder why you ever had to leave the house for a fun night.
5) Bring Out Your Inner Beauty Guru
Raring to try out that eyeliner hack you saw on TikTok? There’s no better time to try out new makeup looks than now. Elevate your eyeshadow game or give yourself a fun makeover with Beauty Bar and Watson’s wide range of beauty products.
6) Be an At-Home Barista
Working from home has plenty of perks, and one of those is making as many cups of coffee as you like — or need. With Rustan’s Home’s endless options of coffee machines, french presses, and tools, and Starbucks premium coffee beans, you won’t have to go far for that energy boost. You can even experiment with different recipes and bring out that inner barista in you.
