So we had our first snow this past weekend and it’s looking like New York City will have another day snow this upcoming weekend as well. So I thought I’d put together a little what to do on a snow day post. Because let’s face it, we are gonna go out in the snow for 15 minutes tops and then track slush back into our homes and spend the remainder of the day inside. Atleast that’s what I did most of the snow day we had. Y’all know I don’t care for snow too much but I actually enjoyed it this past weekend. It came, it fell and it was beautiful. The city was covered in a blanket of white and everything was just a little quieter. It’s that quietness that I really appreciate. So next time you’re snowed in or just bored out of your mind, here are a few things to do.

Binge Watch Fashion Documentaries
I’m pretty obsessed with fashion and pride myself on knowing everything there is to know about the industry. Some awesome documentaries to watch include: Iris, Inside British Vogue, The First Monday in May and In Louboutin’s Shoes. I binged watched them all in one day and it was GLORIOUS.
Plan your Next Big Vacation
I actually like doing this for fun. I peruse airfarespot.com for flight deals to foreign places. Then I search airbnb.com for stellar accommodations that are budget friendly. If I plan on balling out of control, I head over to Mr. and Mrs. Smith to see if they have any hotel deals. The best way to shop for flights is with Google Flights. Literally every flight in the whole wide world is at your finger tips. Here’s a little inspiration for where you should go.
Shop for Faux Fur Coats or Just Coats in General
I’ve turned into a coat person. No seriously, I’ve bought at least 5 in the past 2 months alone. I got this faux fur I’m rocking from ASOS and am 100% in love with it. Then I got a shorter more edgy version with a hood from Zara. Then I absolutely needed a teddy bear coat and this one from Na-Kd fit the bill. I also just received this coat from Kevin Techstyles which not only uses carbon fiber heating technology to keep me warm (for up to 12 hours) it also has a built in portable charging device and a high capacity battery. Life is officially lit.
Shop the Sales
Yes, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over but a few sales are still going strong and getting cheaper by the day! The infamous Net-a-Porter Sale is up to 50% Off. Boohoo.com is having a 50% Off Everything Sale and for the home Crate and Barrel has 50% Off over 400+ Holiday Items. You can also check out more sales here.
Oh…you can also catch up on some reading. Here’s the last issue of Fashion Steele NYC Magazine. (Just in case you haven’t read it yet). I’m working hard on the next issue which is why I’ve been a little absent lately via social media. But it’s so worth it!
