Embracing Winter

Winter…oh that dreaded word! I’m not a fan of winter, and those of you that know me, would have heard me declare it about a hundred times.  Winter is however upon us and we have no choice but to embrace it, after all complaining about it won’t make it go away.  For this post I have compiled a list that is dedicated to the not so awful parts about winter, because let’s face it, it does have a few benefits, that will make this season a bit more tolerable and maybe even fun.

  • Curling up with a good book under thick blankets is one of my favorite things to do. There’s just something about being wrapped up in warm blankets that makes winter a little less awful.  For those bookworms (like myself), it is also an excuse to stay inside and catch up with your reading list.


  • Hot beverages

Having 5 cups of coffee or more per day and nobody can judge you, because it is after all winter, don’t overdo it though, 5 cups or more is probably not a healthy dose of caffeine.


  • Winter fashion and color combinations

This is the time of the year where some of my favorite fashion items make an appearance – beanies, scarves, boots, crazy cozy socks, you name it!


  • Binge watching series and movies

Let’s face it, we all laze around during winter (or at least I do) and winter simply makes us feel okay to binge watch series and not feel at all guilty about it, because what else are we supposed to do with our time when it’s cold outside?


  • Soups

Nothing beats the cold weather than a nice bowl of warm soup…yum!

  • Cuddle time

With it being winter there isn’t always much to do so you can enjoy some cuddle time with your loved one, that is if you’re lucky enough to have one) – Dear future husband now would be the perfect time to make your appearance!

  • Getting away with not shaving your legs


  • Summer bodies are made in winter or so they say.  I would not be able to confirm this, since most of my winters have been spend hiding under blankets and avoiding any physical activity at all costs, but I think I’m finally ready to try this theory out.


I’m going to try and embrace winter this year, hope you are too…until next time!

xoxo Lilanie
