Wintry Delights

People seem to get a tad bit down on winter once the enchantment of the holidays passes, but here are a few things I continue to love about the season!

Hot cocoa WITH whipped cream! (or are those marshmallows? Either way will do!):


Crisp, humidity-free air=smooth hair with zero frizz!


Snuggling up in my warm bed all day with a great book because it’s too cold to go outside:


The opportunity to wear my favorite Anthro boots from last year:


Snow (which made it’s first appearance over the weekend!):


Cozy, cuddly blankets:


Chunky sweaters:



Eating what I want, because winter clothes are oh so forgiving:


Fresh, crisp, non-muggy air:


These are the things I’ll miss when winter’s over. Also, I don’t have a picture for it, but not breaking into a sweat every time I go for a walk. That’s maybe actually #1 on the list.

    LOVE the anthropologie boots! This post makes me wish I could stay in bed all day 🙂

    From Brooklyn with love,

    I agree with you- there are so many great things to cherish during the winter months, although I often forget. Thanks for the great reminder, dear!

    We actually have some weather here in So Cal! Breaking out the boorish and scarves is so much fun…for a few days. ;0) I also love soups in the winter!

    So true. There are plenty of times when I walk outside and curse the frigid weather, but in the end, I treasure each of the unique pleasures that every season brings. The chunky sweaters, comfort food, and hot cocoa are definitely at the top. And I agree…SO much better with whipped cream ;).

    I love this list, and definitely appreciate the happy reminder that winter isn't all that bad. 🙂

    Enjoy the snow! My boyfriend was so sad he missed it this weekend when he came down from NY! We got a bit of a dusting but not nearly as much as the city did!

  12. Laura says: January 23, 2012

    Great post! I love snuggly days in 🙂

    that stack of pancakes looks sooo good! one thing I like about the winter season is having a good excuse to eat a bowl of warm soup. I mean, who really wants hot soup in the summer?

    I love reading all day — considering I cannot put down the hunger games, this is the perfect season to do so!

      Me too, I love when I have a day free to just get lost in a book! Especially The Hunger Games, I couldn't put it down!

  15. Ashley says: January 24, 2012

    These are the perfect cozy weather pictures! Those pancakes and reading a book in bed sound perfect!

    I'm so jealous. Mother Nature seems to think it's time for spring here already.

    Beautiful choices! I could use a pick-me-up in this bleak weather 🙂
