25 Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Seeing as we’re not likely to be seeing the sun until sometime next May, we need to make the most of being inside instead of wistfully looking out the window and hoping for a ray of sunshine. Or at least hoping for no rain.



1. Make cake

2. Have a spa day with friends

3. Have a girly night in with cocktails, pizza and chic flicks

4. Catch up on work or housework

5. Pamper yourself with a bubble bath and a glass of wine

6. Read a book

7. Organise your wardrobe (or floordrobe!)

8. Learn a new skill (musical instrument, crochet etc)

9. Work on one of your hobbies

10. Internet shop in your pajamas

11. Re-vamp your blog

12. Have a clothes customizing party

13. Have a clothes swap party. Bake some cupcakes, shake up some cocktails and get rid of some unwanted clothes

14. Catch up on your favourite TV show

15. Try a new workout video or exercise (I suggest skipping)

16. Plan an exotic holiday for the summer

17. Call or visit your family

18. Try a new hairstyle or different makeup. I recently perfected my winged eyeliner look!

19. Write a good old-fashioned letter to a friend

20. Christmas shop online to avoid the crowds

21. Give your home a new look by rearranging furniture, or making some homemade art for the walls

22. Try out new recipes until you find a new favourite

23. Clear out your makeup drawer. Do you really still need that bright yellow nail polish you bought when you were 15?

24. Learn about a new topic. Have you ever wondered how your TV works? No, me neither. But you know what I mean!

25. Play board games. We’ve all got them in the house getting dusty somewhere, so get some use out of them!


What do you enjoy doing on rainy days?


London Calling (Notting Hill)

August has been a busy month with 2 holidays booked and A Level results day (I’m off to uni in a few weeks!), so there hasn’t been much time for anything else. Our first holiday was a trip to London, and to make our way down to Plymouth to see family. We arrived in London in the morning, so we decided to spend the afternoon exploring Notting Hill, which has now become one of my favourite places. Now I’m just waiting to win the lottery so I can buy my dream house there. Anyone who knows what the numbers are going to be, drop me an email!

The Bubleology shop where I first encountered bubble tea




Hummingbird Bakery




A half day wasn’t enough to explore the whole of Notting Hill, so I’ll definitely be coming back to see more and eat more cake!

P.S This isn’t the last that you’ll be hearing of bubble tea…
