Currently in Australia, we are transitioning from warmer weather to the cool change of winter. With this transition, comes a lot of comments of disappointment and sadness that the cold is now upon us.
I don’t necessarily agree. Personally, I love winter, and everything that comes along with it (okay, maybe not everything). So, I thought I would boost the spirit of doom and gloom and share 5 great things about the cooler weather!
Whilst us living in the Southern Hemisphere don’t get to experience the joys of a white Christmas, or waking up to snow, there are many great things that come along with winter this time of year.
1. Layer Up!
I strongly believe that it’s easier to warm up, than it is to cool down. In winter, you can wear cute fashion items such as scarves and boots – not ideal in summer.
2. Warm beverages
Is there anything better than a warm cup of tea on a cold winters night? I don’t think so. I love snuggling up watching a show or movie while sipping on a cup of tea or even a hot chocolate, if I’m feeling fancy.
3. Makeup that actually lasts
In winter, my makeup doesn’t melt off my face after 20 minutes! Enough said. Also, I love a gorgeous berry lip during frosty weather, testament to my extensive collection.
4. Snuggle up!
Let’s be honest – it’s not fun trying to get to asleep in summer. The best thing about winter is the fact that you can snuggle up with a mountain of blankets – how cozy.
5. Fluffy socks
A little fact about me – I love collecting socks! Not boring white socks you were forced to wear at school, though. Colourful, fluffy, printed socks that make my heart smile. Winter means I can break out my collection and get some use out of them, something I can’t do that often during summer.
