For those STORMY nights in
by Gabi Anderson Courtney
Let me tell you, women my age love stormy nights that we can spend in without any fuss. Long gone the days when I was going out to have fun, rain or shine. Don't make a mistake, I love going out, I love the whole process of glamming up and socializing, but nowadays I am quite selective of what invitations I accept or when I decide to go out just for my own fun. And if it's thunder and lightning, most likely I will opt for a long hot bath with some candles and a glass of wine, or cuddling under a fluffy blanket with a good movie.
So what can you do at home when the weather is terrible?
Cook up a storm and put on a candle lit dinner. It doesn't matter if it's just you, you and your partner only, or the whole family, trust me, it will be well received.
Relax in a hot bath with some scented candles, champagne and strawberries, and just listen to the thunder. You'll feel rejuvenated and stress-free afterwards.
Catch up on some reading, browse through your favourite magazines, and if you get inspired, you can always go through and rearrange your closet.
Use the time to study. There is always something you can learn more about. Make a cup of tea and enroll in an online course that you have always wanted to do.
Put on a movie, get some snacks and enjoy. Get some cuddle time in.
