All of the New York woke up to snow today. AGAIN?!? Looks like we will all be spending tonight inside. What to do? Here are a few fun ideas to keep yourself busy during the storm.

Organize your closets. How many times have you said “I’ll get to that closet this weekend”, only to find it overflowing with winter coats, scarves and boots. Using baskets and bins is a great way to organize and be able to see what you have. My favorite place to buy these is The Container Store. West Elm also has funky woven baskets. New York City is notorious for having tiny closet spaces, so I’ve become a real pro at organizing in small spaces.

Plan a fun meal and invite friends over for a snow storm party. Dust off those cook books or go online and pick an exotic or difficult meal to cook. Put everyone in charge of preparing one ingredient for the meal. Cooking can be relaxing and you will feel a sense of accomplishment when you conquer that hard recipe. And if all else fails just order in!

Give yourself an at-home body or hair treatment. Take some Coconut oil or your favorite lotion, rub it on your hands and feet, put on gloves and socks and let the hydration begin! Your hands and feet will be silky smooth. Coconut oil is also amazing for your hair. Apply to dry hair and leave on for 30 minutes. Then shampoo and condition as usual. Your hair will thank you! If you don’t have Coconut oil around, Olive oil works just as well.

Let us know what fun things you do when you’re stuck inside during a storm. Have a safe, fun and safe weekend!
