8 Things that make me happy in winter

Monday, 4 June 2018


As winter dawns on us here in South Africa, and it seems to we will have a cold one this year, I love to surround myself with things that make me happy. Don't get me wrong, I love winter. It is my favorite season of the year. Below are a few of the things that make me happier in winter.

The Winter Sun

I know the sun in Summer is hot, but it comes with humidity that drives me insane. The Winter sun has that way of warming you up and making you feel all fuzzy inside. 

Blankets and Pillows

Is there anything nicer than surrounding yourself with lots of pillows in Winter? I have one too many throws and blankets on my bed. I love to feel comfortable.


Waking up to cuddles on a Winter morning is the best. Early winter mornings, my son runs to my bed and we cuddle till late in the day. 


Coffee makes the world better, enough said.

Fluffy Socks

I can't wear these socks any other time of the year and only around the house. They always tend to slip around in my shoes and that is just the worst.

Layering Clothes

One of the reasons I hate summer is because as girls you can't walk around without your shirt on. Not like guys. In Winter you can layer as many items as you want. 

Warm vegetable soup with freshly baked bread

My grans homemade vegetable soup can make any winter's day better. Lots of fresh veggies served with fresh bread. The best ever.

Binge watching series

Yesterday it was so cold, that after cleaning the house, I spent the rest of the day under a mound of blankets watching 13 reasons why. There is nothing better in winter.

What are your favorite things that make you happier in Winter? I would love to know down below.
