A weekend is a precious time to relax, recharge, and have fun. But how do you make the most of it? Joanna Goddard, the founder and editor of the popular lifestyle blog Cup of Jo, has some tips and ideas for having a sweet weekend. Here are some of her suggestions, based on her latest blog post.
Watch a Funny Show
One of the easiest ways to unwind and laugh is to watch a funny show. Joanna recommends Starstruck, a rom-com series that follows the adventures of Jessie, a millennial living in London who accidentally sleeps with a famous movie star. The show is witty, charming, and full of hilarious situations. You can watch the trailer here and stream the third season on Netflix.
Try a New Snack
If you’re feeling peckish, why not try a new snack that is delicious and easy to make? Joanna’s friend served her this Trader Joe’s snack that consists of crispy rice crackers, spicy peanut vinaigrette, and fresh cilantro. It’s crunchy, tangy, and satisfying. You can find the recipe here and whip it up in minutes.
Wear a Cherry Red Sweater
Fall is here, and that means it’s time to cozy up in warm and colorful sweaters. Joanna noticed that cherry red sweaters are everywhere right now, and she loves how they brighten up any outfit. She suggests this oversized one or this one with a sexy back. You can pair them with jeans, skirts, or leggings for a casual and chic look.
Read Some Funny Stories
If you’re in the mood for some reading, you can check out Big Salad’s comedy issue, which features humorous essays, interviews, and cartoons by various writers and artists. Joanna interviewed her internet boyfriend, comedian John Mulaney, who shared some funny anecdotes and insights about his life and career. You can also read some confessions of a preschool teacher, who revealed some of the hilarious things that kids say and do.
Go for a Swim
If you have access to a pool or a beach, you can enjoy one last dip before the weather gets too cold. Joanna and her family visited their friends in Connecticut, who have a backyard pool that was open for one final weekend. They had a blast swimming, playing games, and soaking up the sun. Swimming is not only fun, but also good for your health and mood.
