A Way to Relax with April Showers

Although this rainy weather might not be everyone’s cup of tea, there are still ways to enjoy it. With just a few items, you can make the most of this gloomy weather. All you need is:


A “nature-smelling” candle. I like meadow dew or rain.

Flowers. There are plenty of wild flowers available this time of year, but I purchased mine for only $5 at Giant!

An open window and ledge

The smell of the candle and flowers, along with the sound of the rain outside is both calming and relaxing. Next time it’s raining and you’re stuck inside, try it out! 


And remember- April showers bring May flowers!

Major: Multidisciplinary Studies with concentrations in marketing and public relations.Graduation: Spring 2015I have been a writer for Her Campus since the beginning of fall 2014 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have a passion for fashion and cosmetics, and although I like to keep up with current trends, I also like to stick to classics that never go out of style. I believe that less can be more, and it is always okay to wear red lipstick- no matter the occasion. I lived in England twice, and that culture has influenced many of my interests and lifestyle. Like most brits I love drinking tea and eating fish n chips. Rainy, gloomy days are not my enemy, but rather provide a sense of nostalgia. When I lived in Europe I was able to travel to many countries which has left me with a desire to travel the rest of the world.I lived on a horse farm for several years, which has given me the knowledge and passion for working with horses. I volunteer once a week at a sanctuary in Manheim that rehabilitates abused and neglected horses, and would like to eventually volunteer with exotic wildlife. I love all animals, and currently own a pet hedgehog, named Twix. My career goals would be to work as a marketing or public relations professional in entertainment, sports, or fashion. I have many dreams, some bigger than others. In the meantime I plan on taking small stepping stones that will one day lead there.
