Ways for you to spend a fun and relaxing Friday night at home

TGIF! After a stressful week, finally, it’s Friday night! You might think of welcoming the weekend by hitting the bar, going to parties or splurging on good food. After all, it’s a good idea to reward yourself from all the hard work you’ve done this week.

But other than going out, there are actually exciting ways to spend a Friday night without breaking the bank. You can do these fun and budget-friendly ideas to kick off the weekend at home.

  1. Watch and Chill

This is the best time to catch up with your favorite TV shows, online videos, and vlogs which you might have missed these past weeks because of your grueling schedule. If you’ve skipped viewing trending videos lately because you thought they are a distraction, then now is the perfect time to binge-watch those without feeling guilty!

Craving to re-watch your all-time favorite movie? You can relive the magical feeling, too! You have the entire night to relax and stay updated with all the trends.

2. Pamper yourself

Let’s face it, if you’re on a tight budget, expensive trips to the spa is not really a good option. But that does not mean you should skimp on yourself and miss out on a little indulgence to feel good.

You can recreate the spa vibes at home with these affordable and DIY ideas. Light some scented candles, turn off the lights and take a hot shower. If you have extra time, shake your worries off and play some chill music plus take a long bath.

You can also look good and feel good by applying homemade face mask and hair spa recipes that won’t cost you a fortune.

3. Catch some sleep

Adulting can be very demanding. Carrying out multiple responsibilities and meeting even the most mundane tasks may result to a sleep deficit. If you seriously need to make up for your lack of sleep, this is the perfect time. Sleeping is also going to be beneficial for your health rather than staying up on a Friday night. Studies show that sleep deprivation can have serious consequences.

So if you find yourself worrying about overspending or getting bored at home on a Friday night, consider these precious options that you can easily accomplish. Sometimes, it’s nice to have the evening all to yourself for some rest and relaxation.

Seeing my byline again after so many years

I was compiling old write-ups last week and for some reason, I remembered some articles I did for the Taguig City Government last year. Truth be told, I had completely forgot about it and I wasn’t really sure where it went after submission. I had waited for it to be posted on their official website last year. (U-huh, too excited.) I checked several times but I noticed that the site has been ‘under construction’ for quite a while. Until finally, I stopped checking and forgot about it entirely.

It wasn’t until last Friday night that I had visited the site again and was surprised that it did have a new look! Several clicks later, there it was! I found my name on it! A byline!! Admittedly, I was kilig much when I found out that the articles were actually published and they’re still up on their website until today!! Haha. 🙂 I cannot remember the last time seeing my byline. I just got so busy ever since I started my TV stint. So this actually got me feeling quite nostalgic. There was a time I thought I’d end up being a journalist. Whutt. Iba pa rin pala siya kesa rolling credits. )

Feels funny though to be writing about partying in Taguig when I myself have a different idea of what ‘party’ is, and i rarely go to Taguig to just ‘hangout’. Coz yeah true #NorthGirl problems and #TitasofManila

Anyway, thanks to Think Big Taguig! 😂
