How To Make The Most Of Your Winter

Winter & I have mixed feelings about each other. I love snow-- always have, always will. I even love the cold-- bundling up, warm drinks, & the like. But sometimes you just get those winter blues. A lot of time during winter, the sun isn't out much & you don't get a whole lot of fresh air. So since we're definitely still in the winter months (I feel like in Oklahoma, winter hasn't even really started yet), I thought I'd share with you all how to make the most of your winter.


Buy a new article of clothing that makes you happy. 
It doesn't even have to be expensive. I just bought this beanie the other day & I'm supposed to get it in the mail today! I'm convinced that just wearing something that you love & you feel great in makes you feel better.

Drink hot chocolate, coffee, or hot tea. 
I'm not a tea person, but I know that drinking coffee & hot chocolate just makes me feel all warm on the inside. So I'm sure if you do like hot tea, it will make you feel the same way.

Play in the snow. 
Here in Oklahoma, we don't usually get a whole lot of snow (mainly ice).. But the other morning, we had the prettiest snowfall. Obviously I had to take a picture to remember the moment. I think that making the most of the snow will make you appreciate it a little more.

Do a project. 
It seems like during the winter, I get the most stuff done in our house. The other day, we hung a lot of curtains, did a gallery wall & I've surprisingly kept the house clean. My mom & I are also about to paint a china cabinet for our dining room. Doing little projects keeps you busy & makes you feel accomplished.

Have a movie or Netflix binge-watching night.
Pop some popcorn, cuddle up with your love & turn off all of the lights to make the night feel like you're at the movies but in the comfort of your own home. If you're feeling extra crazy, blow up an air mattress or drag your mattress into the living room & sleep by the fire too.

Use your slow cooker. 
I love my Crockpot. It makes the house smell with a warm aroma & basically does most of the work for you. Slow cookers are also great for when you're busy or have had a long day.

Go on a weekend adventure.
Sometimes you just need a moment to get away. Pick a Saturday to drive to a town in your state & just explore. A lot of towns have activities & events during this time of year that you may have never done before. So go exploring & have some fun with your significant other or BFF.

What are you doing to make the most of your winter?


  1. I love my crockpot too! It makes me feel like a special chef of some sort. I find making my home fit the season really puts me in the best spirits!

  2. I totally agree! Crockpots are the best invention ever.

  3. Yes, I drink lots of hot chocolate and tea in the winter! I'm not a coffee person lol. And definitely yes to the Netflix binge watching! Winter is such a rough time. I feel like I just want to hibernate until it's warm again. Also, I must make a note to get a crockpot. I can't believe I don't have one.

    1. OH MY GOSH, GIRL! Crockpots are the best. So easy. Basically you just through everything in the pot & it does the work for you. I love them so much. Haha
