4. ART WITH THE FAMILY
For my stepson Jaiden’s birthday in August, I had the idea to put together a surprise party with painting, nature, and wine. The party company @fettiandfizz helped me come up with an amazing art party in nature! We worked with Daralyn from Palette & Chisel. The art party turned out to be fun for the whole family, and so cool to create art in nature, two things my family loves!! I’m positive we will be doing it again!!
4. WINE CLASS
My sister @orlyfitness fulfilled a long time dream and finally registered for a wine making class in Israel! Unfortunately they are not virtual but it got me thinking about virtual wine tasting classes… It sounds super fun, a great way to break up the quarantine routine, plus you have an excuse to drink wine!! This article lists 17 great virtual wine classes to take at home. Let me know which one you are singing up for, and cheers!
5. EXPERIMENT WITH HAIR & MAKEUP
I always have wanted to try new makeup and hair looks for myself, but I am usually so busy I never have the time!! I am so excited to make some time to learn how to apply make up and do my own hair… with Tracy Ftacek, founder of Pretty Convenient App and her team! They have been offering virtual classes so you can really nail your beauty routine and have fun doing it. I am taking my class soon, I can’t wait and I will come back with updates!!!
6. TRY NEW VIRTUAL WORKOUTS
I was working out regularly with Lift Chicago and Yoga 2.0 before quarantine, so I definitely struggled with nailing a workout routine at first. After a few weeks, I learned to love working out at home and I got really good at keeping a routine! Since most gyms are closed, a lot of fitness programs are stepping up and offering free at-home virtual workout options. Personally I just discovered and have been LOVING @remykam! She has amazing Instagram videos that are super fun and easy to follow. I also really enjoyed Barry’s bootcamp virtual classes and Dana Method workouts.

7. FIND A FAVORITE PODCAST
if you havent started that this is the time to find new favorite Podcast, my current favorites: DopeAssMom, GoalDigger, The Morning Toast, SimplyBe., the GaryVee Audio Experience, and Online Marketing Made Easy. I am always listening to a Podcast when I drive and during walks. It’s incredible how much you can learn in just a 5 minute drive!!
