Virtual movie night

With the help of Chrome extension Scener, you can make movie night happen again while staying socially distanced. With both camera and microphone enabled, you can be together again through a screen. Scener works with Netflix, Disney Plus, YouTube, Hulu, Prime Video and more! You can host your own private room, or even join public theaters. Bring some snacks and sit down to watch a movie of your choice with a loved one or a big group of friends!


Valentine’s Day Baking

Looking for ways to make your Valentine’s Day a little sweeter? Try out a baking recipe! This easy and gooey one-minute red velvet mug cake is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. 


Red Velvet Mug Cake 



You’ll need: 6 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder, ¼ tablespoon of baking powder, ⅛ tablespoon of kosher salt, ⅓ cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 tablespoons of pure vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of red food coloring, 3 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar, and lastly, 1 tablespoon of room temperature cream cheese. 



In a 12-ounce mug, all you need to do is whisk all of the dry ingredients together and then stir in the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix your confectioners’ sugar and cream cheese until everything is completely smooth. Drop everything into your 12-ounce mug and microwave on high for 90 seconds. 


Valentine’s Day Cards

Writing personal Valentine’s Day cards is a good way to remind your friends and loved ones that you care about them. There is no better feeling than finding a handwritten card in your mailbox. By buying or writing a sweet card, decorating it with cute drawings and stickers, and finally sending it off in an envelope, the receiver will be filled with warm and happy feelings.


Valentine’s Day Playlist

The best way to get in the Valentine’s Day spirit is to put on some good music. From sitting in your room with chill love songs playing in the background to having a dance party alone, this playlist encompasses every mood. We’ve compiled a Valentine’s Day playlist to make your holiday feel a bit more special this quarantine!
