Cozy Must Haves for the Second Coming of Winter

As I sit down to write this, snow is falling slowly and serenely outside my window. I say serene because I'm not out in it. Instead, I am cozied up in my house, thanking my lucky stars that I don't have to venture out in that mess.

I love being cozy, but really, who doesn't? Especially in the month of February, when the Christmas and New Years glow has worn off and all you can think about is enjoying a Pina Colada on a secluded beach somewhere. 

Though the beach sounds nice, it's not possible right now. So instead, let's talk about the essentials for coziness during winter's second, and more brutal, coming.

Tea


The first thing I do on a chilly morning, and the last thing I do before bed, is pour myself a nice big cup o' tea. What is it about tea that seems to warm you up to your core? I love it. Right now my favourite is David's Tea. I love the assorted boxes, there's a flavour for every occasion! 

Socks

I know what you're thinking: is she really going to talk about socks? Well yes, I am, because they can't be underestimated in their coziness factor! I don't know about you, but if my feet are cold, my whole body is cold. I could be wearing ten layers on top, but if my tootsies are bare I'm a shivering, chattering mess. Enter Smart Wools socks. I'm telling you, these guys make me warm, and cozy! 

In Bed.. All Day, Everyday

Doesn't that sound fantastic? If I could do everything from bed, I totally would. Work, exercise, conquer the world, you name it, I'd do it. There is nothing better after a long day of work than coming home and crawling into a perfectly fluffy bed. Lately I've been admiring Parachute's bedding sets... I think it may be time to switch it up! 

Candles 


Dim the lights, strike a candle. I swear, as soon as October hits, you can bet I have a candle burning in my house. Not only does it add much needed warmth to a room, it also just makes the atmosphere overall more cozy. 

Sleepwear

Now we come to the Holy Grail of being cozy. The ever-so-essential sleepwear. Remember earlier when I was gushing about my love of bed, well sleepwear goes hand in hand with that. Now, I'm a firm believer of going with absolute comfort when it comes to my pjs. I don't need anything fancy schmancy over here, just so long as it's smooth against my skin and doesn't get all knotted up during the night. 

Right now I'm swooning over Joe Fresh's line of pjs. Really, what don't I love about Joe Fresh? It's stylish, affordable, and comfy! A+ in my books.
