Hey my loves,
Winter means a lot of things – cozy sweaters, time with your loved ones, festive music and so much more. But it’s also the season of cold, rainy and snowy days and sometimes you don’t want to get out on those days, because you rather stay inside.
But what could you do to brighten up those days? Well, let me tell you what I do.
Get into the comfiest clothes. Make some hot tea or cocoa.
The first thing I like to do on those rainy days is to speed clean my apartment. I know, sounds not so fun, but honestly starting your day with a task like this will make you feel like you accomplished something that day.
Hearty Breakfast or Brunch
After I like to make myself some hot coffee or tea, whatever I fancy that day and most likely will even spend a little more time on my breakfast. I’ve been loving oatmeal with a banana and cinnamon lately, so I will likely make that.
Spending quality time with friends
If I don’t have anything to do for the blog or Uni I like to call up friends and ask if they want to hang out, because let’s be honest watching a movie or cooking food with friends is just so much more fun. I love playing board games with my friends and am currently building an awesome collection of games.
Festive movies or TV shows
I put on a Christmas movie or a show I am currently watching. Recently I’ve been loving Somewhere Between and V Wars, really into both for some reason. Or Virgin River. But, if I am being honest I am just waiting for the next season of You. I freaking love that show. What are some of your favorite TV shows at the moment? Let me know. I’m always intrigued to try something new.
If I have put something on I have already seen I most likely paint my nails or do some light brain storming or spend my time on Instagram. At some point or the other I get bored so I will switch up what I am doing, I love reading so I sometimes will read a couple of pages of the book I am reading. But, I also love doing an extended skin care routine. Check out my latest entries: My Skincare Routine and Best Beauty Buys in Winter
Baking and Cooking Comfort Food
I love baking, especially around Christmas time.
I’ve recently started a new thing on my Instagram called Monday Cravings where I share my favorite recipes. Check out my first two IGTVs for some inspiration for some great cookie recipes. @thedawnofinspiration
After baking and cooking I always end up on my couch watching a movie I haven’t yet seen. Sometimes, when I am not in the mood to watch anything, I just love to watch YouTube videos or learn to play the guitar.
What are some of your tips to make the most of a cold day? Let me know in the comments.
I wish you all a wonderful day.
