Winter Warmers

Yes I know winter is slowly creeping up on us, but before you pull the duvet over your head and hibernate till March, here are some great reasons to embrace the season!

The clothes – Such an obvious one, but layering up is great fun and there are some heartbreakingly gorgeous knits out there right now. From cashmere cardigans to chunky jumpers, you’ll be able to find one for every mood to see you through the cold weather in style. And don’t forget all of the accessories on offer, from leather gloves to patterned earmuffs, you’re simply spoilt for choice.

Christmas – Ok, I know it’s a bit early, but as the nights get darker it’s hard not to pick up on the excitement in the air. Before you know it there’ll be secret Santa presents galore, Christmas nights out every week and hopefully a cheeky kiss under the mistletoe.

Food (and lots of it!) – Who can say no to a steaming bowl of delicious hot soup? Or a full Sunday roast? These things just don’t taste the same when it’s the middle of summer, but when it’s cold outside they are just the thing to warm you up.

Boots – Nothing beats a comfy pair of boots, or even a snazzy pair of wellies for the wet wintry weather. Warm toes and you don’t have to bother painting your nails. Who can complain about that!

Hot drinks – And what’s more, the extras that go with them. Hot chocolate and marshmallows, mulled wine and minced pies, even a cheeky Baileys coffee. All are more than enough reason to embrace the cold.

An evening in cosy nightwear – Don’t fancy hitting the town? When the weather gets colder you don’t have to come up with an excuse for a night in front of the telly, you can just don your fleecy onesie and snuggle down completely guilt free.

The X Factor and other guilty pleasure TV – You know you shouldn’t, but we love it! There’s no need to stray outside when the shows are this addictive.

Hot bubble baths – The summer is all about a quick shower to cool down, but in the winter you can spend hours luxuriating in the tub.

Not shaving your legs – No more having to skip wearing your favourite dress or scramble around for a razor. Just grab a pair of 80 denier tights and you’re good to go. Plus you can opt for some funky patterns and add plenty of personality to your look!

There are plenty of reasons to dress up – Halloween, bonfire, Christmas, New Year… Plenty of excuses to go all out with the fancy dress or get your glad rags on. And now you can purchase that gorgeous gown that you’ve had your eye on because you have plenty of reasons to wear it.

Now that you’ve shed your winter blues you can snuggle down, get comfy and embrace the weather! Enjoy! Love Aimee x
