The end is near, as soon as the clock hits 5pm I’m free to enjoy the weekend.
That Friday feeling hits as soon as I wake up, and the working day ahead doesn’t seem as daunting as I remind myself its the last day before I can let loose on the weekend. By that, I mean, have the freedom to do whatever I want without having to think about the consequences of going into work the day after. Here are my top tips to having a Fab U Lous Friday (and weekend) as in my eyes the weekend should commence Friday evening rather than waiting for Saturday morning to roll around.
The easiest thing to do on a Friday evening is to get home, run yourself a bubble bath, and have a lovely relax, winding down from the long week. Either with a cuppa or a glass of wine (or two). However sometimes you’ll want to make the most of your Friday evening whether its letting your hair down and going out for drinks, or going to the cinema with lots of snacks. The choice is yours.
As I go to the gym after work during the week, I tend not to go on a Friday night just to give myself a break and to make it really feel like the weekend! I like to plan my weekend so I know exactly what I’m doing, and can cram as much into my days off as possible.
Plan! Plan! Plan! Even if its meeting up with friends for a coffee or going shopping. Having a planned weekend means you can make the most of your time, and aren’t sitting at home binge watching Netflix waiting for Monday again. (Unless that’s what you want to do of course).
As I’m writing this, I’m currently thinking about all the things I am doing, or want to do this coming weekend. For example, tonight I’ll most likely go to the pub with my family for a few drinks and a natter. It’s an excuse to put some makeup on, some fancy clothes and catch up on our week. I’ll get home, slap some makeup on and head to the local pub. (I wont be drinking as I’m saving myself for Saturday night). It’s always nice to spend time with my family, especially after a busy week of dodging each other out the door. I’ll get in from the pub, shower, fake tan, cook a healthy dinner and make sure I have everything in order for Saturday. I’m wanting to film, so I’ll make sure all my cameras are charged and my room is tidy before having a good stretch and heading to bed.
If I don’t go out on Friday night it is a time to just relax and spend time with family and friends. Whether is is going to the pub or going into town for a meal. Saturday is when the real fun begins! I’ll try to get up early, I plan on vlogging so I’ll film bits and bobs through out the day. I’ll have my breakfast and head to the gym. I much prefer working out in the morning because it sets me up for the day, and gets the session out of the way early on. I also want to head into town to do a little shopping, so after the gym I’ll shower, have some post-work out food etc… then I’ll head into town to do some shopping before getting ready for my night out. If any of my friends are free I’ll meet up with them for lunch or a coffee! I’m out for my friends 21st birthday on the nighttime, going for a meal then cocktails. I’ll get ready and then head out the door once more. I always try to keep busy and active on a Saturday as its my proper full day off work with no need to worry about Sundays.
After this I’ll probably roll back in the house in the early hours of Sunday morning. Wake up feeling not so great, and either drag myself out for brunch, or cook up a storm to ease the hangover. My mam is extremely kind to me when I’m hungover and we’ll probably have our Sunday morning sausage sandwiches. I’ll either meet up with some friends or go for a walk with my family. We usually go to the Quayside or the beach to clear the cobwebs and get moving! I hate lying around the house when I’m hungover and I feel so much better if I do something active. I’ll edit my videos for the week, and schedule uploads. If I’m feeling particularly adventurous I’ll go to the gym in the evening so I can wake up Monday as fresh as a daisy for the week ahead.
