my perfect lazy day.
One of the hardest changes to accept when getting older is that you no longer get a summer vacation. To compensate for my 3 month vacation being taken away, I've created mandatory lazy days. Let me tell you, I am a phenomenal "chiller" - like I am a pro at doing nothing.
I believe it is my civic duty to help my lovely, but anxiety-ridden readers learn to chill out. So with that, these are my lazy day essentials.
1. Sweats are a must, regardless of the time-of year. This is not debatable.
2. A chill day is not complete without a quality "chill-ax soundtrack". Damon Albarn's Everyday Robots has been a favorite of mine for a few weeks now. He's the lead singer from the Gorillaz -- but his solo sound is mellow, slightly soulful, ambient, yet rhythmic -- I don't know how it works, but it does and I love it. And, if you have not heard of Sam Smith, you have been deprived and I am sorry. His EP is great. His album is great. Trust me, you'll be changed for the better.
3. Orange Is The New Black Season 2 comes out June 6th -- need I say more? And, I will admit I was slow to the Game of Thrones bandwagon for reasons outside of my control -- ie. I didn't have an HBO GO password to use. But, things have changed and I am ready to join the bandwagon. Starting with binge watching the seasons.
4. No chill day is proper or complete without the right food and drinks. You see the pictures, and I know you understand.
I know, I know -- this is the best list you've ever seen right? Well thank you for your kind regards. I just decided that my summer vacation won't be ripped from me and I just accept that. So you can thank my rebellious spirit and an innate fear of adulthood for this post.
Hope you enjoy,
