okay so my vacation mentality has come to a very quick halt … I woke up this morning to a thick blanket of snow as far as the eye can see. great.
I know, i know, “but jess, we thought you looooved the snow?!”. well friends, i’m biting my tongue now – can i take it back??? no no, snow and I haven’t quite broken up yet, it’s still beautiful and cozy and romantic, but i’d be lying if I said I haven’t been pining for spring.
That being said, what better way to enjoy my snow day then curling up and sharing some of my fav cozy things to do when the weather has me locked in ?! yay!!!
Try a new recipe
One of my fav things to do on a day like today is bake! I can’t say i’m the best baker in the world – quite frankly it’s all completely experimental when it comes to me and the kitchen, but it’s a fun and sweet way to cozy up. A Banana Loaf is one of my favourite winter treats to make!
This might not be everyones cup of tea, but something about snow days always gets me in a cleaning spree mood – it might sound odd, but something about organizing the physical things in my life (like my shit show of a closet maybe???) makes my brain feel so much less fuzzy. clean home, clean mind??? Not to mention organizing my social calendar seems to make me feel like I actually have all my shit figured out lols.
Harry Potter, Disney, and yes – even Star Wars, are just a few of my fav fav fav movie series’ to cuddle up and watch when the weathers got me down. Or perhaps you feel more like a Netflix binge? I’m currently re-watching Gossip Girl and lemme tell you – nothing could make me any happier
Sipping on Something Sweet
Homemade hot chocolate is super festive and the definition of cozy. Throw some milk and chocolate in a pot and melt melt melt!!! a dash of cinnamon and some (more like a giant handful of) mini marshmallows will do just the trick!
Cuddle up with a Book
I know i’ve mentioned this one in more than one post but I just can’t help it – i’m a closet nerd. Fallen, The House of Night series, Beautiful Creatures, Bitter in the Mouth and My Sweet Audrina are just a few books i’ve been absolutely loving lately!
So friends, whatever it is that you’re up to today, may your blankets be soft, your hot chocolate sweet, and your snow day cozy!
