How to create the *ultimate* stuck-at-home beach vacation
Got the travel bug from all this time in the Q? Us too! That's why we've put together the *best* tips and tricks to totally transform your home into the *most* relaxing beach spot possible.
Turn on a *beachy* flick
Turn on a sun-splashed movie like Teen Beach Movie or Holiday in the Sun to get in the summer spirit. Watching your fave actors having fun at the beach will lighten your mood and remind you that next summer's not *that* far away.
Zen out in a summer themed bath
There's nothing that says summer more than stepping into a hot n' soothing bath with a bunch of sunflowers, citrus fruits and a *glitsy* bath bomb.
Whip on a tropical sheet mask
Applying a tropical sheet mask will *def* set the summer mood, and make you forget about all the homework and online classes you have todo. Instead, you'll tots *zen* out by closing your eyes and picturing palm trees, sun rays and all the beach babes.
Light a summer-esque candle
Your fave sun-soaked scent will give you all the laid-back summer feels so it's like you're really lounging at the beach—even if you haven't left your room.
Make a summer smoothie
A summertime staple is *def* a fruit smoothie. Creating a fresh strawberry banana smoothie is a *must* for planning the ultimate stay at home beach vacay.
Turn on your best summer playlist
Playing beachy music in the middle of winter will definitely put you in a summer mood. Pop in your earbuds and relax with chill tunes like "Do You Believe in Magic?" or "Here Comes the Sun." Or stream the High School Musical 2 soundtrack right from your speakers for some serious throwback vibes.
