Hello, Winter

Here we are again. As all of you lovely people on the other side of the world start taking advantage of the nicer seasons, I’m stuck in wind and rain. Since getting back from our Japan trip, winter has officially greeted us. Wind, rain, hail has been pretty consistent these past few weeks. Its harder to get up in the morning since it’s freezing. It’s dark as we get up for work, and then it’s still dark when we get home.

I made a post last year about What I Like About WinterΒ and after reading through it, I figured I should bring it back to remind myself that winter isn’t all bad!

Fuzzy Socks and Cute Slippers

With the arrival of winter comes all the cute and fuzzy footwear. I had fun picking out some new slippers for myself. I settled on these unicorn ones, because unicorns.

Hot Baths

Don’t get me wrong, I love hot showers too, but I live for baths. I have been trying out new bath bombs practically every week again and I have been loving them!

Sweaters and Layers

I will miss wearing dresses and shorts, and if you know me, you’ll know I love sweaters and cardigans. Knitwear is my favourite kind of clothing, and I keep buying them. EspeciallyΒ as the cooler seasons roll in again.

Hot Drinks

Okay so I still prefer iced drinks most of the time, but I do love a good hot chocolate. I need to get some mini marshmallows.

Scented Candles

scented candles

Okay, so these can be used anytime, but lately I’ve been enjoying them quite a lot. I’ve been buying a few, like coconut and sandalwood. I’m keen to try find some more ‘wintry’ ones, cause I like having the house smell nice.

What’s something you’re enjoying about whichever season you’re in?


Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. YESSS to bath bombs! I love these even in the warmer months πŸ™‚ These (https://amzn.to/2LGETPq) are my favorite at the moment, I have 5 or 6 stocked for those moments when you’re craving a good soak!


    1. Those look good! I always enjoy going into Lush and picking out a new one to try πŸ˜€

  2. I am enjoyig the air conditioning right now because it is 84 degrees outside, and a lightning storm is blowing through at the moment πŸ˜‰

    1. That sounds like intense weather out there haha! Our summers are a lot more tame, although I wouldn’t mind borrowing some of your weather at the moment πŸ˜€

      1. If we could just share a happy medium that would be great. A little cooler for me, a little warmer for you hahaha πŸ™‚

  3. A hot bath sounds perfect for the chillier temps; feels like I was just commenting on your summer posts- time is flying for sure!!

    1. It definitely is the best part of having cooler weather. Haha, 2018 is definitely starting to fly by already, it’s crazy!

  4. Okay now you are kinda selling me on the merits of Winter after reading this πŸ™‚ I love baths! And aside from Starbuck’s cold brew and frappuccinos I ADORE hot lattes. And I love layers. Okay I guess Winter isn’t ALLLL bad:) <3

    1. Haha, it’s all about looking for the little things! Sure outside it may be freezing and raining, but winter definitely has it’s perks πŸ˜€

  5. Oh this makes my heart yearn for winter! Enjoy (:

    1. Haha, I always do my best to look for the positive things even in the coldest season! Enjoy summer on your end πŸ˜€

  6. I always forget we have different seasons! I love to layer, it’s one of my fave looks! 😊

    1. Haha, just remember that whatever season you’re enjoying, I’m in the opposite lol! πŸ˜€

  7. As I live in the UK and there’s like 30 days of sunshine if you’re lucky, I truly appreciate summer – right now it’s cloudy! But just being able to wear dresses and sit outside and do my blogging in the sunshine with a smoothie. I do love my hot baths in winter though and it seems like the perfect time to grab coffee and pumpkin latte’s at a cafe.

    1. Haha, that sounds kind of similar to our summers down here. But still, it’s nice to be able to go outside, wear a dress and not freeze πŸ˜€
      Ooh yes, being inside in a nice cafe with some coffee while it’s gross outside, is another bonus of winter πŸ˜€

  8. Those slippers! 😍

    1. Haha, I love them so much!

  9. Loved this post!! All these thihgs about winter are great especially hot baths 😊 xx

    1. Thanks Amelia! Hot baths are definitely one of the best things about winter πŸ˜€

      1. It’s okay xx

  10. I love those slippers. Too cute! I love hot baths and candles too in winter. Atm I love just being outside in a park, beach etc x

    1. I immediately had to get the slippers when I got them haha! Baths and scented candles are so much better in winter! Enjoy your warm weather!! πŸ˜€

  11. Your slippers are so cute!! It’s too hot here at the moment for me, would love to wear some slippers again xx

    1. Haha, I love them! I’ve begun developing a habit of buying cute slippers at the beginning of winter then wearing them out by Spring lol. Enjoy your warmer weather though! Soon enough we’ll swap seasons again πŸ™‚

  12. It’s getting warmer here but we’re still getting rain, and recently hail, it doesn’t seem like summer is on its way at ALL! πŸ˜‚
    I miss bath bombs but my tub is too small for me unfortunately, so I’ve had to pass on those now 😞

    1. Haha, that sounds like typical spring weather. It can never make up its mind πŸ˜‚ aww that’s a shame. Maybe you can bring one when you guys go travelling somewhere with a big bathtub πŸ˜„

      1. Yeah I did that in Seattle and while their tub was longer and just a tad wider, it wasn’t deep enough lol

  13. This post def reminds me that I’m out of bath bombs. Also those candles sound amazing!!!

    1. Haha, I’m out too at the moment! We both need to go get some more πŸ˜€
