5 Things to Try This Weekend

Happy Friday, LC readers! I think we can all agree on one thing: Nothing beats the weekend. And today I have something to help make your weekend even better. Check out these five ideas to try on your days off, and let me know which ones you like best…

  1. Run errands in bold lipstick. Give your dry cleaning run a glamorous twist this weekend by swiping some bright pink or coral on your pout before heading out the door. Even if you’re keeping the rest of your look casual, a little bit of lipstick will make you look chic and sophisticated.

  2. Book a massage. Break into your piggy bank this weekend and give yourself that well-deserved spa day. If you’re like me, you’ve been putting it off long enough. You’ll come back from the weekend feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the week ahead.

  3. Walk 20,000 steps. If you’re desk-bound during the week, the weekend is a chance to put on your chicest sneakers and track your steps with an app like MovesiTreadmill or JogAlot. See if you can hit the recommended 10,000 steps a day. If you have a cute pup to bring along, even better.

  4. Whip up a no-bake treat. When it’s hot out, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven. So instead of baking cookies, try making a batch of my famous guilt-free cookie dough bites or healthy no-bake fudge this weekend. No baking required, and bonus: they’re a lot better for you, too.

  5. Make a blessing bag. There’s no reason to wait until the holiday season to do something good. Spend a couple hours this weekend gathering non-perishable snacks, toiletries, and other necessities, and dividing them into Ziploc baggies. Keep them in your car or in your purse to hand out to the homeless.

How will you spend your weekend?

    I am so impressed that you help the homeless. I keep 20′s in my car to hand out to them with bottles of water. I am all about girlfriend time, outdoor activity, healthy foods, reading,movies, sleeping in and massage is always good for the soul.

  • Shelby Leonard

    I love the last one! That’s just another reason you’re an amazing role model.

  • Susan

    These are really cute ideas for the weekend. My nights are occupied this weekend but I could definitely try some of this during the day (I suppose the pedometer could be done anytime.)

    Go on a treasure hunt for GeoCaches! You can use an app to find what they call GeoCaches in your area! A geocache is a little tube that may have little trinkets inside along with a paper of everyone signing who has found it. Google it if you’re interested and have always wanted to find the X on a map!

  • Rebecca Kelsey Sampson

    These are some great ideas! I think it’s cool to have a weekend bucket list type thing going on. I’ll give it a shot with some experiences I’ve been wanting to try.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

    I love the idea of a blessing bag and I will most certainly take advantage of the bold lip idea ;)

    I love the blessing bad idea!

  • Ambi s

    Love the idea of trying new things out – I’ve been trying to be more experimental with my makeup recently and am loving the bold lip look

    I really like these ideas! Number one is fabulous, and I feel like Taylor Swift when I put red lipstick on.:) Walking with my dog sounds like a nice idea, too. Keep them coming, Lauren!

    I love doing the bright lipstick to lighten things up! Add a bun (like with the ballerina bun sponge) and it’s an even more classy look with no effort at all.

    I would highly recommend using The Massage
    Buddha for a quick, at home massage option. They offer affordable Thai
    and Swedish massages, with a focus on Eastern and Western massage
    practices. If you are in the Los Angeles area, I recommend checking
    them out: http://www.themassagebuddha.com
