Why I Won’t Complain about the Weather

There’s nothing worse than waking up to overcast skies and rain smeared windows, is there? Leaving hair flat and frazzled, roads blocked with traffic, and the best laid plans in ruins, the Great British weather has a lot to answer for.

That is, unless you have no business being outside. So having woken up to a typical British scene of puddled streets and darkening clouds just yesterday, I decided to cuddle up at home and pamper myself. It’s not all bad, is it? 😉 Here’s 5 more reasons why I won’t complain about the weather:


5. Wet weather days are a great opportunity to try out new beauty trends at home – where no one can judge your handiwork! 😉


4. Anyone for a movie marathon? Feet up. Netflix on. Tea in hand. Bliss…


3. The sound of rain against a window must be seriously the most peaceful sound there is. Don’t believe me? Turn the volume up on this when you’re feeling stressed.


2. Rain is like a get out of jail free card. No one’s going to force the issue if you decide to skip your commitments today.


1. But if you do decide to do some work – you go, girl! – there are zero distractions, and your efficiency rate is sky high. Look – my entirely scientifically sound graph below proves it.

      Sounds like a day well spent if you ask me…

  • This is true, I love a rainy day as long as I don’t have to leave my flat, otherwise it’s not my cup of tea at all!

    I really don’t like rain as for the same reasons they sometimes kinda cancel out your plans but I like to seeing it from my balcony. Watched your snapchat lol UK got the breeze going on. Anyway watched this movie interstellar it made me cry if you find time you know you can go for it. Xo death Before Disco
