10 Weird Things All Girls Do When They’re Home Alone


Being home alone is the best! You can do whatever you want, eat whatever you want and wear whatever you want. Having the house to yourself is a sacred time, here are 10 weird things we all do when we’re home alone – don’t deny it, we know your secrets!

#1 Be the star you always knew you could be

You can’t resist putting on your favourite tune and dancing a sexy/hilarious dance in the mirror. This is your music video, and your time to shine – you always knew you were destined to be a superstar!

#2 Be naked

When you’re home alone, clothes are optional. You’re as happy in a baggy t-shirt and pants as you are completely in the buff, who says you have to wear clothes? Social norms do not apply here…unless the heating is off.

#3 Try out new looks

There’s never a better time to blend gold eyeshadow into your eyebrows and overdraw your lips to get the Kylie Jenner look, nobody will see you so there’s no danger of looking like a fool. Take a few selfies and pretend you’re actually going somewhere for extra laughs.

#4 Do karaoke

YouTube karaoke videos are addictive. Record yourself on Snapchat just to hear how great a singer you are or send it to your best friend. Only stop when you realise the windows are open. Did anyone say “Let it go?”

#5 Eat everything together

Chicken and chocolate trifle? It’s a combination we need to try out. Whatever food you have can certainly be sampled in one go, and you can eat like nobody’s watching – because luckily nobody is! Woohoo! Crisps and sandwiches and chocolate buttons all in one mouthful!

#6 Cry violently

Nobody’s home to be uncomfortable when you put on sad songs or movies and hug your pillow while you cry. There’s nothing really wrong, it’s just nice to have a good cry and think about the old times…

#7 Make the bed your hub

When you’re home alone your bed becomes your office, dining room, living room and kitchen. Why do you ever need to leave such a wonderful place? There’s no need to change the sheets after you’ve eaten nachos in them either, just distribute the crumbs to the side you aren’t sleeping on.

#8 Talk to yourself

Whether you say what needs to be done out loud or have full blown conversations with yourself, talking to yourself stops you from going crazy and keeps you entertained, but when you start thinking of yourself as a cool person to hang out with you need to take a step back and give someone a call!

#9 Freak out

You’re home alone. So naturally a murderer has chosen this moment to break into the house, he’s being super stealthy and will probably only show himself while you’re sleeping. Luckily you have a lamp that will stop him, right?

#10 Ugly selfie time

Take one hundred selfies from all different angles, the uglier the better. If any of them turn out good you might as well edit your face into oblivion and make it your profile picture on Facebook! Win.

    I love the unsure feeling when you’re trying new looks and then you get a small bit of courage to leave the house, as soon as a compliment is recieved you get this amazing feeling. My day gets a little better… x
