What To Do On A Saturday Night With Your Friends

Summer is just around the corner and everyone is excited to finally get to the beach and take that well-needed vacation. During the summer we find ourselves constantly out, spending money, making the most out of every night, but after a while that stops. There is always going to be that one weekend where your friends decide to stay in or just chill around the house because you just went out the past three nights in a row and your paycheck is gone. These are some free-fun things to do on a summer night with your friends.

1. Store-Scavenger Hunt/ Town-Scavenger Hunt

What we do is pick a store of our choice, usually a Target or Walmart, or if you have a car, make it a town-wide hunt, and create teams. Teams of two or three are ideal, but you need at least two on a team. What we have done in the past is google search any list used for the scavenger hunt of our choice, whether it be a store, town, items around your house or a public place like the park or beach. The teams are usually given an hour or so to find as many items on the list and the team that collects the most items, wins. It doesn't seem like the most exciting game in the world, but believe it or nor, when my friends get together and play this game we make some pretty great memories.

2. Cook/Bake!

What we have done in the past, is pick a recipe of something we love or have never tried before, hoping you have all of the ingredients in your home, and cook or bake it with your friends. Again, this sounds boring, but if you are playing music and joking around, this can be a pretty fun night. Not only are you laughing and shapchat the whole ordeal, but you are getting food out of it--how great is that?

3. Movie Night

The typical movie night has been done so many time, but there are ways to turn an ordinary movie night into a memorable Saturday night wit your friends. From experience, I have found that reminiscing on old movies or tv shows that we watched as kids is always fun. We usually fight about which movies were better or who knows all the words to their favorite movie, but whether we end up watching these movies all the way through, or just bits and pieces of a few, it's always a good time.

4. The Last Resort--Going for a drive, Exploring a park, Playing a sport, or Going to Target

Now this 'last resort' has a few different options. Sometimes you aren't really in the mood to stay-in and you need to get out of the house because you can feel yourself getting cabin fever. What I have found, is that going for a drive and having a sing-along is a lot more fun than you think; rolling the windows down and screaming the words to your favorite song and telling stories in the car are some of my more memorable nights out with my friends.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
