Recipes, Books, and Activities to do at Home


Many of us are at home learning to navigate this new normal, and so I wanted to share some delicious recipes, fabulous books to read, and entertaining activities to keep busy. Enjoy, and hope you all stay safe and healthy!

Recipes to Try

Books to Read

  • I am starting “The Two Lives of Lydia Bird” by Josie Silver tonight and can’t wait. I read her first book, and fell in love – it’s funny, charming and lighthearted.
  • A dear friend gave me this book for my birthday, and I am so excited to start reading it.
  • Set in London, “Surprise Me!” is a book I couldn’t put down! It’s an easy read, and a definite “feel-good” story.

Activities to Do

  • Clean closets and organize – de-cluttering your space feels fantastic. The Neat Method has the best tips.
  • Retail therapy from the comfort of your home! There are so many great sales and gift card promotions right now in fashion, beauty and home – here, here, here, and here have some amazing offers.
  • Puzzles challenge your mind, and are a fun activity you can do solo or with your family.
  • Listen to a new podcast – Goop has really intriguing options.
  • Channel your inner artist and paint or color in a coloring book. I love this one about interior design! 
  • Host a family Game night – we’ve played Guess Who? and Candyland and needless to say the boys have loved both.
  • Treat yourself to a spa night, with a revitalizing mask and bubble bath, or give your self a manicure/pedicure and try a vibrant new polish.
