    35 Ways To Keep Occupied During Quarantine…

    ♥ TIPS FOR NAVIGATING QUARANTINE ♥

    Things have been tough with everything going on. From being stuck at home to stress financially and health wise, now is the time to try and relax, reset + keep your mind busy during quarantine. That’s why I wanted to share some helpful activities to keep your mind off what’s happening in the world while being home! Hope some of these help you, your family + friends ♥

     1. DONATE

    Now is a great time to donate to those in need whether it is medical supplies, cleaning supplies or even food or clothes, there are so many charities accepting donations right now so you can feel like you are making a positive impact during this trying time. I did some spring cleaning and made donation bags of clothes and then cleaned out my pantry to donate to a local food bank! Plus organizing and decluttering will help you feel organized and efficient.

     2. PLAY A GAME

    My fiance and I have been playing tons of fun board games lately and even games on XBox + Wii to pass the time. To connect with his mom who lives far away we joined Words With Friends so you can keep in touch with those you love while social distancing!

    3. TAKE AN ONLINE CLASS

    Tons of Universities are offering free continuing education classes online or join Skill Share and take a class to learn a new skill to help you in your career! I am take a Skill Share class on web development!

    4. LISTEN TO A PODCAST

    I’ve never been a big podcast person but recently I discovered so many like Up and Vanished which is all about murder mysteries (perfect for Dateline or 48 Hours lovers), Gary Vee’s Podcast (great for marketers) + The Science Of Success (great for those who need a little motivation to reach your goals).

    5. WORKOUT AT HOME

    There’s tons of great at home workouts you can do on Youtube! I even found some quick, easy workouts on TikTok! Stock up on at home free weights or resistance bands and you are ready to go.

    6. GO FOR A HIKE OR WALK

    My fiance and I have been going for daily walks around our neighborhood to get some sun, fresh air + leave the house for a little. We keep our distance and wear our masks and feel so great after a nice long walk to feel the spring weather!

    7. MEDITATE

    There are so many great CEOs that praise meditation as key component to their daily success so I began trying it and I’m hooked! Download an app like CALM + experience what meditation can do for you (especially during such an uncertain time it helps settle your mind).

    8. COOK OR BAKE

    Now is a great time to get in the kitchen and cook something new or bake! We’ve been grilling, baking, trying new appliances, recipes and so much more! Find inspo on Pinterest, Youtube + more! One of my favorites is making Mickey shaped waffles or pancakes.

    9. DRAW, PAINT OR DESIGN SOMETHING NEW

    I love letting out my inner child with a fun coloring book or painting project! Stock up on coloring books or make a new craft to pass the time.

    10. ORGANIZE YOUR HOME

    I’ve been taking advantage of this time at home to clear out my closet, organize my kitchen and make my space feel clean + new! Order some storage supplies and get organized! 

    11. MAKE DALGONA COFFEE

    I’m not a big coffee drinker but I’ve been seeing this all over TikTok and had to try it – honestly pretty fun and satisfying to make. Tons of recipes out there giving step by step instructions so why not go for it.

    12. TIE DYE YOUR CLOTHES

    A big trend this season is tie dye so why not tie dye at home yourself! Whether it be a plain white tee or sweats, save some money + have a little fun by tie dying at home (plenty of tutorials on TikTok!)

    13. DOWNLOAD TIKTOK

    Probably should have started with this since a few of my recommendations mention TikTok BUT you’ve gotta download it! Even if you don’t want to post, I find it as a great resource for tutorials, workouts, cooking + more (besides dancing Renegade haha :p) Follow me on it – MISSYONMADISON

    14. BINGE WATCH TRENDING SHOWS

    Whether you are a Hulu, Netflix or Disney+ Fan there are tons of great shows to watch right now. Personally we binged Tiger King and are working on Ozark!

    15. CATCH UP ON SOME GREAT MOVIES

    16. LEARN A NEW DANCE

    If you are into the TikTok dance trend, now is a great time to learn some moves + test it out at home…plus it’s a great workout!

    17. CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES

    As we focus on washing our hands one thing we always forget is to clean our makeup brushes! ANISA Beauty has a whole Purify line dedicated to brush cleaning, the products are great plus the process is something I find soothing.

    18. TEST OUT NEW HAIRSTYLES

    Happy Easter…

    Tie Dye Dress || Pearl Handbag || Aquamarine Loungefly Bag || White Wedges 

     🐰 HAPPY EASTER  🐰

    I hope ya’ll are having a great holiday weekend. While it feels like the days are blending together, it’s nice to take a moment to remember the holidays taking place and to celebrate whether you are currently with your family or celebrating virtually. I always love Easter because it feels like the start of spring + ushers in fresh flowers, positive vibes + great weather. It also bring fun prints, colors + all the great spring styles.

    I am currently crushing on Tie Dye so I figured this dress would make for a great Easter option especially styled two ways – a Disney version AND a normal spring version. Let me know which you like!

    I am big into characters as you know so we snagged Mickey and Minnie Easter Bunnies at the Disney store before quarantine started and they are honestly the cutest. I paired them with this Aquamarine Loungefly Minnie Purse I found on sale at the Disney outlet store in Florida for only $29.99 originally $90! Such a great find!

    Another bag I am loving is this pearl handbag I bought last year as my modern day Easter basket – isn’t it so fun? I linked to a variety styles below along with my white wedges that are super comfortable and great for so many occasions.

    Are you guys doing anything fun for Easter? Painting eggs? Baking?!

    ♥ PASTEL FEELS ♥

    I don’t know about you but I’ve been in a strange funk lately. Even though it’s spring (one of my favorite seasons) + the temperatures are warming up, with everything going on in the world + stay at home orders in place it’s a little hard to not have all the days just blend together making you get a little stir crazy. I’ve been trying to stay upbeat + positive by sharing some bright + colorful content on my social, hosting giveaways to cheer people up, giving back to those in need, organizing around the house, playing with new skincare + makeup and overall trying to keep sane when in the house all day. One of the things that cheers me up is looking back on fun outfits / content I shot pre-quarantine and this look happens to be one of them!

    As you all may know by now I love a colorful look – especially pastel so when I spotted this rainbow striped sweater (now ON SALE) from REVOLVE I knew I needed it + I have styled it honestly so many ways (jeans, shorts + of course my favorite…a skater skirt).

    I added some of my favorite accessories that just add to thee outfit + make the colors pop even more…a white Gucci belt + pink YSL bag.

    I’ve been crushing on gray pumps for years now. These are actually from 8 or 9 years ago and I still wear them all the time to be honest because they are fun, match with everything + are a great alternative to just plain black. I’ve linked to a bunch of similar styles below since these were an exclusive collaboration from Nine West (hence the pink trim and pink soles). missyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, la blogger, pearl headband, revolve, lovers and friends, striped sweater, pink skater skirt, pink ysl bag, gray pumps, gray suede pumps, spring style, spring outfit inspo, spring outfit ideas, spring fashion 2020, revolve spring outfits,missyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, la blogger, pearl headband, revolve, lovers and friends, striped sweater, pink skater skirt, pink ysl bag, gray pumps, gray suede pumps, spring style, spring outfit inspo, spring outfit ideas, spring fashion 2020, revolve spring outfits,
