What I Love About Winter

I am so excited that winter is finally coming closer! I really do hate being cold more than anything, but I love dressing for the cold! Does that really make any sense? If it doesn't, oh well. There's nothing more that I would rather wear than tights, scarves, gloves, oversized sweaters and boots. Here's my FAVORITE things about this time of year though....

1. Boots!

2. Bread bowls at Panera Bread. Yumm.

3. Oversized Sweaters!

4. Lighting candles.
 (preferably bath & body works candles, "caramel vanilla" and "homemade cookies" smells so good!)

5. Scarves!

6. ANYTHING Christmas related.
Christmas music, christmas sweaters. christmas decorations, christmas cards, christmas candy, christmas trees, christmas, christmas, christmas!

7. SNOW!

8. Hot drinks from starbucks
(ecspecially gingerbread lottes and peppermint hot chocolate. Mmmm.)

9. Cookies!
And basically every other kind of dessert. My favorite dessert during this season? Egg custard pie!

10. My heater
(seriously. I love how warm that thing makes my room! We have central heat yet I still use my heater. Haha.)

  4. Not to bite your style or anything but I think I can safely say 'ditto' to everything on this list! Maybe add in wearing thick scarves and having hot chocolate in the evenings for me~

  5. you seriously just mentioned about 10 of my favorite things. I would add cheesy movies, like a boyfriend for christmas :) so sappy, so seasonal... haha


  6. I love all things u love! I would tell christmas gifts and holiday with a perfect cup of coffee! ^____^

  7. Haha! I think everyone can agree on most of these things. Winter is such a perfect season sometimes! Other than ice and having to scrape your car and all of that.. haha

  20. The ONLY good thing about the approach of finals is the excuse to drink really, really insane amounts of Starbucks. And I also am so ready for anything even slightly Christmas-related!
