My name is Ilka. And I’m a Homebody!
Maybe it’s old news. But I’m slowly turning into a granny. A 25-year-old granny. With a cat. Yap. That’s actually how it is. It would be absolutely understated to call me a homebody.
(noun.) ‘somebody who enjoys being at home
Don’t get me wrong. I love to travel. Go out every once in a while (for dinner). Or visit my friends. Also, I’m not a couch potato. I love to do things when I’m at home.
Watch The Office
This is, by far, my favorite thing to do at home. It’s my all-time favorite TV show and I can watch it for hours straight without feeling the need to do something else. When you never saw an episode or had even heard of The Office, then what on earth is wrong with you. I mean, seriously. There isn’t any better show. I’ve checked it, trust me.
Probably one of the most important things to me is self-love and self-care. Especially in the evening, I like to spoil myself with a homemade facial, manicure, pedicure or relaxing spa time. Depends on how much time I have and in what mood I am. My usual pamper time is Sunday evening. It’s so relaxing and refills my batteries for the upcoming week.
Rearrange & tidy up
Similar to pampering myself, I love to give my home a little love too. Different to most people I met, I really enjoy cleaning. It has something really relaxing plus your home is pretty and fresh afterward.
As I have a huge crush on nearly all things interior related I wish I could afford to buy new homeware every once in a while but as I’m on a budget I just play around and rearrange all my furniture and decorations.
Other Homebody things I do lately
- Reading. I’m not a bookworm either do I read a lot. But lately, I came across a few really good books.
- Meditation. More frequently I find myself releasing stress through meditation. It’s a great way to find inner peace and let go of too many thoughts.
- Crafting. I lost my enthusiasm for creating but slowly got it back. Especially knitting is one of my favorite things to do. (I told you, I a granny)
