Spending a weekend solo...

I didn't have a good picture so I chose the first thing I had on Google Drive... 
Being single is relatively new to me, I've been in a relationship since I was 17 so I've never had to think about doing things 'solo'. 

After spending most weekends home, alone, in my Bridget Jones pants, feeling sorry for myself I eventually ventured out into the world... by myself. 

Here's my tips/ some things I like doing when I have a weekend by myself. 

Netflix is Life
Spending an entire weekend binge watching my TV shows is one of my favorite things on solo weekends. Load up with snacks and put on your coziest PJ’s and take up residence in front of your laptop. Some of my favorite shows at the moment are Switched at birth, Pretty Little Liars and Criminal Minds. 

Go to the Gym
The Gym is pretty much a no judgement zone... unless you fall of the treadmill. It's also one of the least sociable places to go. Who wants to make friends with a sweaty stranger? Also I'm told exercise is good for you and makes you happier so wins all around! 

Solo Shop 
No judgmental looks as you pick up that hideous sweater that screams cat lady? Solo shopping is pretty cool. 

I love shopping with friends, but it's also pretty damn OK to go on your own. 

Read Something Inspirational
I love going to coffee shops and spending a few hours drinking lots of coffee, treating myself to a cake and reading a good book. 

Go to to the Cinema
Yep watch a movie on your own, get a large popcorn, some nachos for good measure and enjoy a good movie. It's pretty weird at first, and I kept questioning if it was socially acceptable to go on my own? But then I remembered there's actually not a rule book of things you can't do solo.

Sometimes a weekend doing things for yourself solo is pretty liberating. 

There are so many things I could add to this list and I may do another in the future if you guys want more things to do on your own! If you have any ideas of things others can do on their own this weekend then do leave them in the comments as I would love to know!


  1. There's no life like the solo life, and I mean that in the best way! Netflix is hands down the best way to spend it, in my humble opinion.

  2. Going to the gym is both healthy and fun when going solo!
