These days, we could use a little glam, especially if you’ve spent the last couple of months in quarantine. But, even when things get back to normal, there are plenty of times when we end up stuck inside because of rain or snowstorms, and it’s the perfect opportunity to give yourself a little makeover. While stuck in the house, try having a spa day for yourself, and then get dressed up in your favourite outfit with your matching gold chain necklace and enjoy a little indoor party.
Have a Spa Day
Perhaps one of the best ways to treat yo’self while stuck inside is with an all-out spa day. Lather that face mask on, pluck those eyebrows, and give yourself a mani/pedi. But, spa nights aren’t just for the girls.
Guys, you can give yourself your own relaxing way to revamp your look. Suggest a spa night to your girl, and we guarantee she’ll be all in. Set the mood with some aromatherapy, candles, and even some comfy bathrobes. You can let her plan the spa treatments like an exfoliating scrub or mask, and be open! Everyone could use a little self-care, no matter your gender.
If you’re looking for a way to give yourself a makeover, change it up and dye your hair. Men and women are having a great time experimenting with different fashion colors like bright blue or pink.
If crazy colors aren’t your style, no worries. There are plenty of other more natural-looking colors that can give you a new, refreshed look. But, if you’re feeling nervous, you don’t have to commit to a permanent color. Why not have some fun and just try a washout dye or even a spray-on? It’s a great way to make yourself feel stylish and glamorous.
Put on Your Favorite Accessories
When you’re stuck at home, it can be difficult to find a reason to change out of those super comfy sweatpants. Putting on a sick new outfit can improve your mood and motivate you to get other things done around the house. Also, it can just be fun to have a mini fashion show with your cool accessories like a gold chain or bracelet or some big gemstone rings.
This is also a great time to go through your jewelry and give each piece a really good cleaning with mild household cleansers. It’s important to prevent grease and dirt from building up on your real gold and silver pieces in order to keep them looking their best.
Create a Reason to Get Dressed Up
After you’ve already gone through all of your sweatpants and you need a reason to feel charming and elegant, plan some kind of at-home event that you can get dressed up for. Call your friends and plan a time for a virtual happy hour over a video conferencing platform like Zoom or Google Hangout Meets.
Then, pick a theme and ask everyone to come dressed in their best with their favorite cocktail, beer, or wine. Everyone can get the chance to show off their getup, and you can catch up with the people you love most.
Clean Out Your Wardrobe
Being stuck in the house is the perfect opportunity to finally get around to that spring cleaning of your wardrobe. Pack away the winter gear and break out your warm-weather attire. As you unpack and put things away, you can spend time considering which articles of clothing you can probably ditch.
After you’ve gathered up everything that you’ve decided to give away, try selling some of your items online to build up a fund for a whole new wardrobe. Once you’re ready to swap out your old garb for a new wardrobe, you can do some online shopping and find your favorites styles for this season.
Have a Regular Workout Routine
Although working out may not sound very glamorous (lots of sweating), it can make you feel really good both physically and mentally. Figure out a workout routine that you enjoy whether it involves running, biking, yoga, or other at-home exercises. Make it a part of your everyday routine, even if you’re only working out for 20 minutes at a time. We promise it’ll leave you feeling like the most glamorous person in the world.
Eat a Healthy Diet
What we eat truly affects how we feel and, while it’s definitely tempting to devour all the junk food in your kitchen when you’re stuck inside, having a healthy diet can improve your mood and your overall physical well-being. This is a great way to also learn some cooking skills.
Look for recipes online that are plant-based or healthy-eating-oriented and try out something new tonight. The more you cook, the better you’ll get at it, and soon you’ll be able to whip yourself up the best dang veggie and rice bowl you’ve ever seen and post it on Instagram. Eating a good diet made up of the right foods can also improve your skin, hair, and nails.
Give Your House a Makeover
Sometimes the best way to glam up our lives is by redecorating the space around us. Many people have been diving into home improvement projects during quarantine like painting the inside of their house or setting up a backyard garden. If you don’t want to tackle too big of a project, you can simply rearrange your room, giving you a fresh, new space. Go through your decorations and get rid of some things that have gone out of style or just no longer go with the room. Then you can start shopping around for fun new ways to liven up your living space.
Get Your Glam On
You can feel glamorous even when you’re just at home chilling by yourself. Have a makeover night with some spa treatments and go through your wardrobe to pull out pieces that you’re ready to part with, so you can start building a whole new style collection.
If you’re looking for reasons to rock your coolest gold chain or show off that new shirt, plan a virtual happy hour or hang out with your friends and ask everyone to get dressed up. For other ways to add a little style to your life, you can redecorate your home—and be sure to stay on a regular workout schedule and healthy-eating routine to have yourself looking and feeling your best.
