In case you hadn’t already figured it out I am quite the fan of winter. Christmas get’s me all kinds of giddy and I just LOVE getting myself set up in a cosy flat with a good Christmas film and a tin of Celebrations. I do however find that these months tend to fly by and before I know it winter is over and people are muttering words such as “BBQ” and “heatwave”. VOM. This year therefore I’ve decided to write myself a mini winter bucket list to ensure I really make the most of the most wonderful time of the year. *Disclaimer: these can also be completed post Christmas.*
I love a good book all year round but once the temperature drops curling up on the sofa with a page-turner seems even more appealing. My drawer is currently overflowing with books that are waiting to be devoured and these are the four that I’m planning on making my way through over the next couple of months.
While it’s vital that you still make an effort to get out and about over the winter time, sometimes nothing beats a cosy night in. If you’ve had a busy day at work or out Christmas shopping, or you are struggling to fight off a cold, there’s nothing better than snuggling up in your pyjamas and getting some all-important rest. It can give your body a chance to unwind and recover, help beat off bugs before they hit, keep you warm, help you to unwind and even help you to sleep better. Let’s take a look at everything that you need for a cosy night in this winter.
Sometimes you go out for a meal and you find yourself waiting for the dessert menu to be rolled out. You make your way through a perfectly tasty starter and main meal but you know full well it’s the pudding that’s gunna seal the deal. And then all of a sudden your dining partner drops the “I couldn’t eat another thing” line and the prospect of something gooey, sweet and chocolatey is looking less and less likely. Sound familiar? If so then the new Heavenly Desserts cafe/restaurant in Liverpool ONE could be the perfect location. After all, there’s no way of missing out on your sweet treat if you’re at a place solely dedicated to desserts is there?
When nights get darker, we spend more time indoors. Some of us will put on their PJ’s, straight after getting home from work and settle down in the living room with a book or Netflix. To make the time we spend home more enjoyable, you can change some things around your home, and make the most out of the dark nights. Here are some tips to keep your home warm and welcoming this winter.
As the nights draw in and you start to spend more time in your PJs drinking tea than, well, pretty much anything else, you know that soon winter festivities will be upon you. Sparkling dresses and prosecco with tiny entrėes, proper feasts with your whole family and festive fun with your friends will soon fill your calendar.
So you’d better get prepared!
