Winter is a time where people get a bit more negative, and I’ll admit there are some things about the colder months of the year which I hate. A lot of people say this is their least favorite time of year, but this is my rebuttal. I choose to celebrate the goodness of the season. Here are my favorite things about Winter…
- Endless cups of hot beverages
- Burning candles
In my opinion everyone looks better in winter clothing. Layer upon layer with a tiny bit of skin showing, nothing is more stylish than that.
- Sweater weather
- Sleep ins
- Lazy weekends
- Footy season
- Scarves & beanies
- Sitting in front of the heater or fire
- Less bugs around
- Green landscapes
- Cold air makes it easier to stay awake
- Snuggling up in a quilt
I will admit, I am semi attached to my quilt. Even in summer you will see it wrapped around my body at bedtime. So you can imagine that when winter comes my quilt is my best friend.
- Easier to get to sleep
- Wearing socks to bed
- Long showers
- Defrosting in the sun
That feeling when you’re absolutely freezing and no part of your body feels safe, and then you find a spot in the sun that’s protected from the wind. The greatest feeling ever. (having to move afterwards, not so much.)
- Long walks
- Vivid lights festival
This is one of my favorite events of the year. At this time many areas of Sydney are lit up. It’s so beautiful and an inspiring thing to be around.
- Having the beach all to yourself
One of my favorite things to do is go to the beach in winter for a walk or simply just to stare out at the ocean and listen to music or a podcast. You can often find a time where it’s just you on the beach. Peace.
- Whale watching
- Not having to shave or wax as often
Any female who says they don’t shave or wax as much in the colder months is a liar.
- Wearing jeans every day
