DIY Spa Night
Okay so this one may sound like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be. Grab some face masks, manicure sets, essential oils, and throw in a flute of champagne. Put on some calming meditation sounds, light a few candles... and you’ve got yourself an at-home spa for an ultimate unwinding evening.
Calling all sushi-lovers! While treating yourself to a sushi night may be a weekend causality, actually making the sushi… well that’s a whole different story!
