Everyone has a lazy day

Lazy days for me and most people I know are on Sunday. You aren't really doing anything, you know very lowkey. My favorite thing to do would probably have to be cooking something amazing or watching a really good movie. Don't worry! I have some ideas just for you!

Mug Cake Recipe

If you are vegetarian, no worries, this is safe for you too! Serving for 1.


  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (lightly packed)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp low-fat milk
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips



  1. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a microwave-safe mug. This is a small cake so you can use an 8 oz mug and it should just reach the top when finished cooking. You can also use an oversized mug, but the cake will be lower in the mug. Mix with a small, sturdy whisk until smooth batter forms and no lumps remain.
  2. Stir in half of the chocolate chips. Sprinkle remaining half over the surface. Cook in the microwave for about 1 minute. Let cool a few minutes before eating.


I just recently watched a movie called Wonder. This movie is sad so if you are a cryer, be prepared! I don't want to give away the movie but to sum it up a young boy with a facial deformity goes to middle school for the first time and battles some bullies and makes new friends. I suggest you make your mug cake for yourself and rent this movie!

One more week!

Spring break is one week away, are you excited? I sure am! Now, here's the real question, do you know where you're going? Or what you're going to do? Well, no worries I can sure help you if you're stuck on that.

What to do?

This depends on what you LIKE to do normally. For example, do you like staying at home reading a good book,  going out with friends, or traveling maybe? Well, look down below for what you think is best for you.

Staying at home- I get it staying at home can be the most relaxing thing out there, just chilling by yourself with no one judging you. Here are some ideas that would make your staycation even better.

  • Find a new recipe and make it! 
  • Make or buy a bath bomb, there are plenty of bath bomb recipe's out on the internet but you can always buy one ahead of time.
  • Find your favorite book, a fire, and some amazing smelling candles.
  • Order a pizza and get your Netflix on! 
  • If you feel like inviting some friends over, have an outdoor/indoor party.

Going out- You can either go out with just yourself or invite your favorite people. Here some ideas on where to go to excite your night on any occasion.

  • Go to a new movie! Movies never disappoint.
  • Shopping could never hurt, especially in a cute, fun town!
  • Go out to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
  • Drive to a new city in your state. Day trip!
  • Go to an arcade/gaming place, those can never bring you down.
  • Roller skating or ice skating, skating always brings out some good laughs.

Traveling- Now this can be a day trip, road trip or taking a plane somewhere. Where should you go or what should you do? Good question.

  • Visit family nearby or far away, always good to make someone's day. 
  • Hear about somewhere fun? Go there and take whoever you want!

Thank you for checking out the TLCF blog! Hope you found something that interests you and I hope you do it!

Want to improve your weekend? Read the article down below.

  1. Cut Back on Chores
    "I know, that sounds crazy -- when else are you supposed to do them?" VanderKam says. "But chores expand to fill the available space. If you have to do them in bits of time on weekdays, you'll spend less time on them (and that's a good thing!). And look for ways to hire help for the biggest time consuming chores -- which is smart for working parents who want to spend their weekends enjoying their children (rather than putting them in front of the TV so you can mow the lawn)." Think about hiring a housekeeper to help with extra chores.

  2. Make a Plan
    The best way to get the most out of your weekend, or any day, is to have a plan. As VanderKam says, "I think being productive on weekends means doing all the rejuvenating things you'd like to do. So make a plan."

    What's at the top of your to-do list? Go for a run, have lunch with a friend or volunteer as a family? It's all possible.

    VanderKam suggests planning how you can make the logistics work. "Make your arrangements, and put these activities on the calendar, and more than likely, they'll happen. Having a plan massively increases the chances that you'll look back on your weekend memories fondly, rather than having no clue Monday morning where the time actually went."

  3. Prioritize Your Schedule
    At the same time, there are some things you have to get done. But remember that you're only human. Don't try to squeeze every last errand, party or activity into one weekend. "Try not planning everything," Marino suggests. "Sometimes we over-schedule ourselves and our children." Give yourself permission to do nothing one weekend a month.

Focus on 3 things that make you happy every day

Analyse what it is that comes naturally to you during the day. Maybe you simply have to go to the gym to feel good and you get edgy when you don’t. Or you find that cooking is where you spend most of your time. Or you may find yourself dreaming up stories all day which could mean you love writing fiction.

Find those things, write them down and evaluate why they make you happy, and then try to put those findings into other things.
