5 things to do solo this weekend


Doing stuff solo shouldn’t be something you're scared of. But as a millennial I feel like its something we all feel a little bit weird about doing. There is nothing wrong with being on your own or choosing not to go out with your friends at the weekend! I think that we should take a few hours or a whole day at least once a week to ourselves to refresh, recharge and spend some time getting to know yourself better. Being independent and learning to love being with your own company will help you tenfold so here are 5 things to do solo this weekend.

Netflix is Life
Spending an entire weekend binge watching my TV shows is one of my favourite things on solo weekends. Load up with snacks and put on your cosiest PJ’s and take up residence in front of your laptop. Some of my favourite shows at the moment are Penny Dreadful and Vikings. If you have any recommendations of series to binge watch then suggest them in the comments!

Take Hike
When I was in America I realised how refreshing and mind cleansing going on a hike can be. Experiencing nature can really calm the mind and the soul and make you feel at peace with the world around you. A short 1-2 hour hike around a local wood, park or if you’re more adventurous then attempt a mountain climb! Feel the wind in your hair and the birds chirping around!

Solo Shop 
I personally love shopping with my friends  but I do also love going on my own. When Im alone I can take as much time as I like trying on things and experimenting with my look without having a friend comment on things. Hurray to being under no pressure and no judgemental friends side eyes!

Day Tripping
Hop on a train and take a visit to the coast or to a brand new city you’ve never been to before. The beauty of travelling solo it means you can go wherever you want, do whatever you want and in your own time! Stay overnight in a fancy hotel and pretend your in Gossip Girl!

Read Something Inspirational
Curl up under a duvet on your couch with and get fully engrossed in a good book. Try a motivational book to inspire and motivate you to try something new in life. Or maybe a recipe books to get you trying some new foods next week. Or even a YA novel, which are still great reads even in your mid twenties!


There are so many things I could add to this list and I may do another in the future if you guys want more things to do on your own! If you have any ideas of things others can do on their own this weekend then do leave them in the comments as I would love to know!

Truly Lord Alika never failed me,my husband who left me for good a year come back to me.

  3. Love this post! I, for one, definitely feel that I need to go out and start doing things by myself rather than just waiting for my friends to be free!

  4. Aha I've ended up spending the last week solo for most of it, just taking little adventures. It's been great and kind of what I needed after a week of 24/7 with friends <3

  17. I am one of those people that can't stand the thought of doing anything alone in fear of judgement, even though I know really no-one is going to be thinking badly of me for being alone. I need a day one day where I can sit and do absolutely nothing but binge watch a tv show, I still need to see OITNB and GoT! I like the idea of taking a hike or something though, walking and then finding a place to lose yourself in a book or just take in the place around you and I'd love to explore more so maybe I will find the courage to take a trip to a new place one day

    ReplyDelete
  18. I need to start learning to do things solo, frequently everyone is busy. The shopping I've done alone & enjoy it just as much with friends. Thanks for the ideas, great post! Please do more :)

  23. at uni recently, one of my seminars was delayed by two hours. it wasn't worth me going home, so instead i wandered around Cambridge by myself. at first i hated it - i felt like everyone was looking at me, but i ended up in a cute little bookshop/cafe with a cup of tea and a book! i ended up really enjoying myself!

    your ideas are lovely. and such pretty photos!

  24. Great post, I love to solo shop, I agree no judgemental comments on what your buying. Plus no one is there to shop you from splurging the cash or put you off buying that product! :)

  36. I love doing things by myself, I like to take my time and do/watch/eat what I want - that might make me a bit selfish sounding though haha! I've even been the cinema a few times alone where I've just fancied seeing a film on a whim and it was no where near as embarrassing as I thought it'd be x

  43. This is such a great post and has made me realise I should really do more by myself. I usually get caught up in always going places with my boyfriend or friends, but it's quite nice to go out by yourself once in a while!

  44. I used to be terrified of doing things alone, especially shopping. I would feel like people were looking at me and feeling sorry that I didn't have anyone to go with. When I got past high school I stopped caring so much what people thought, I would look around when I was out by myself and realise how many people are doing the exact same thing!

  53. How To Get Your Lost Husband Back

    “LOVE is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr Ukaka when I consulted his powerful Love Temple. I married the wrong man; I realized that after four years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr Ukaka from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via freedomlovespell@hotmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr Ukaka. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr Ukaka told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr Ukaka is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank you great Dr Ukaka and your Oracle for helping us via freedomlovespell@hotmail.com and I will keep spreading this message to people in need of help. also contact him for help.website address: freedomlovespelltemple.yolasite.com ;

  58. Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http
