The next time summer storms surprise you unexpectedly on your day off, try these Rainy Day Relaxation Ideas perfect for when you need to stay snuggled up inside. These tips are inspired by the June POPSUGAR Must Have Subscription Box.
POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try but all opinions expressed are my own.
It turns out summer in Ohio is even more surprising than I expected. The sheer greenness still overwhelms me. Plus we get so much RAIN! The moisture is a welcome change after 16 years in the dry desert heat. At the same time the weather occasionally derails my outdoor plans.

I have been working and traveling non-stop for the last few weeks. Our two-car status has given me my freedom back after 11 months of downtime so I’ve been making up for it by running all over the place. I was so happy to find my June POPSUGAR Must Have Subscription Box waiting for me when I returned from my recent trip to Illinois. I peaked at a few spoilers online before it arrived, which means I knew it was full of beachy goodies like this Billabong Aloha Forever Trucker Hat. It will come in handy next month when I road trip to Nashville to see the kiddo!
This weekend I wanted to enjoy a sunny day by the pool working on my nails and my beachy blond waves. Then the heavens opened with a torrential downpour courtesy of Mother Nature herself. No joke folks, it was a lot of rain! My solution was to make the best of the situation with a few Rainy Day Relaxation Ideas.

Curling up with a good book is always my idea of a good time though. It can be poolside, fireside, or bedside. Anyway you look at it I lose track of my surroundings. It was really easy to lose myself in ‘The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo’, by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Would you hate me if I told you I finished it in less than 24 hours? I’ve already passed it on to a friend so we can dish about it at a later date.
What goes better with a good book than creamy coffee and cookies? Not much in my opinion. These Meri Meri Blue and White Party Straws are the perfect addition to my iced Caramel Starbucks® Frappuccino® Chilled Coffee Drink. I’ve been a little addicted lately to the SB app, but who wants to brave the elements when you can have a coffee treat at home!
And those Belgian Boys® Mini Cookie Stash, they were just wanted I needed at about 2am as I started the second half of the book. It was 3am before I tore myself away and finally crashed.
Books, sweet snacks, and beauty products. I’d say those are some pretty simple summer Rainy Day Relaxation Ideas just about anyone would like. Use the code SHOP5 (which never expires) for $5 off your FIRST #MustHaveBox!
