TODAY I WANT TO...CURL UP

Hit snooze. The best part about snow days? Guilt-free sleep-ins. Turn on your twinkle lights, grab your fluffiest blanket and drift back into dreamland.

Tackle your TBR list. Toasty fire in the fireplace? Check (thanks, Dad). Cup of cocoa? Check. All that's left to do is cuddle up with a wintry page-turner.

Go for a retro game sesh. Chances are you've got an old console or PC hanging around, so grab your sibs for a vintage video game marathon of instant classics like Mario Kart, Dream Life and The Sims.

Cook up some comfort food. Grilled cheese and tomato soup is a classsic, but why not whip up a snow-day casserole? Chicken enchiladas or veggie pot pie for the win.

DIY a stitch craft. Whether you go for a simple scarf or level up with a beanie, crocheting is the ultimate cozy activity. Check out Bella Coco on YouTube for easy-to-follow tutorials.

Create a comfy haven. Settle in for the night by transforming your living room into a snuggly sanctuary. Blow up a queen-sized air mattress, then pile it high with all the throw pillows and blankets you can find.

Reminisce over nostalgic movies. End the day with old family vids. Pull out those clips Mom took of you sledding in second grade and relive the memories with your OG crew.

TODAY I WANT TO...GET AHEAD

Salute the sun. Kick-start your morning with a mood-boosting flow. From beginner workouts to core conditioning, YouTube's Yoga With Adriene is your go-to girl.
