Winter is most definitely upon us. (Okay, not technically if you listen to those people that say Winter doesn’t start until January because of-what is it, daylight saving?-but if you’re one of those people I say AHEM GLOBAL WARMING and I’m already wearing my Christmas slippers as I write this post. So ha.)
New opportunities are fun, but old traditions are just as important. I have a few Winter traditions that I adore, and I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourites…
Dinner in a Slow Cooker
If you’re searching for Slow Cooker recipes, look no further than my Pumpkin Spiced Latte recipe here! There is nothing better than coming in from the cold to a warm house and an amazing smelling dinner. Plus, if the cold weather/darkness/ is getting you down, it helps to not have to worry about cooking once you’re home. There are so many things you can make in a slow cooker that you would never even realise, either!
If you haven’t heard of Hygge, you’re missing out, because it’s the technical term for lazing about. Well, not quite. It means to take time to make even simple moments meaningful and beautiful, to savour every second. It’s so important to me in the winter months, because having a guilt free lazy day is hard for me. I have to be productive in order to feel any kind of confidence, and obviously this isn’t always possible after a long day at work! Ensuring that you take the time to appreciate that down time and making it special-so important when Winter comes around.
Revamping my wardrobe
This is more of a problem than a tradition! I love revamping my wardrobe, finding excuses to go shopping, investing in millions of jumpers…but this is a basic requirement, right? I can’t go through winter without a matching hat, jumper and scarf set.
Watching Vlogmas videos
Similar to Blogmas, a vlog every day until Christmas. For a not so subtle announcement, make your way to my YouTube Channel…
