10 Fun Spring Break Ideas

Activities that are fun to do over spring break.

40

I don't know about you but I am looking forward to being done with the inconsistent weather- cold then warm then cold again hopefully by spring break it will be a little warmer. Not only am I over the weather but I am in need of a break. Spring break can't come soon enough. I am excited to just to relax and enjoy some family and friend time. Over spring break I plan to be outside reading a book or maybe even just the slightest bit of sunshine. I am also hoping to see a movie or go on a fun adventure. What are your plans over spring break? Here are 10 inexpensive ideas to enjoy this break.

Go outside

Take advantage if it is nice out to get some sunshine, it feels like we haven't seen the sun in five months. But sit and enjoy a book or take a walk. Go play baseball or soccer with friends. Just be outside (If it's not snowing out. Let's hope that won't be the case.

Treat your self and go get your nails done

It is always feels good to go get something done, whether that be nails or hair done.

Go see a movie

There are tons of good movies coming out around March/April. If it is a rainy day this is the perfect thing to do!

Take a road trip with friends

I have always wanted to do this. It's a way of not only having fun with your friends but getting together and making memories that will last a life time.

Spend time with family

Make sure at least some of your spring break is spent with your family, as spending time with your friends are important so is family. I want to go see a movie with them or just hang out and play board games all day.

Go shopping

This is my favorite thing to do during spring break because one all the winter stuff will be on sale and two the spring stuff will be out. It's very exciting.

Take an unexpected adventure

Rather that be take trip to the city or try a new food place. DO IT. I think it will be so worth it. Try something you haven't done before. Think outside the box this spring break.

Spend the day In the city

See what's in town, maybe there is monuments in your city or fun things to do. I live near St.Louis and there are tons of places here that I love to visit such as the Arch, the St.Louis Zoo and the famous Fitiz's!

Go out with friends

It's always good to enjoy some time with friends over break rather that go be see a movie, go out to dinner or something that you and your friends enjoy doing together!

 Relax!

It's a week-long break, you don't have to do anything but sleep and watch movies. That's perfectly acceptable! I like to sometimes chill after a long couple of months at school. A break is sometimes much needed.

These are just some ideas that you can do that are simple and cheaper than going to the beach or a large vacation. Being on break doesn't always have to be about going somewhere it's about how you spend the time you have and who you spend it with! Make it count.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
