Keeping Cozy

Keeping Cozy Reading 1As late Fall sets in and the temperatures drop, I’m ready to get cozy! It takes a moment to get used to it getting dark at 5PM, but once you’re home and in your comfies, it can be very relaxing. A warm blanket, a beautiful candle and a great book (or show) is the perfect way to spend a November evening.

It’s almost the Holidays, which is such a busy time of year. I’m making the most of any downtime and enjoying cozy moments. I’ve rounded up all the lovely things to keep you warm and toasty as winter sets in, and give you some gift ideas as we kick off the festive season.

Keeping Cozy Final

CANDLES
Lighting a candle instantly makes your space feel more cozy.  Vancouver Candle Co has a new collection, house in beautiful black glass vessels. My favourite scents are ORTUS which features Red Current, Rose and Balsam and SILENTIUM which features Bergamot, Lavender and Musk.

BLANKET TRAVEL SET
Holiday travel plans? This Travel Kit from Nordstrom has an eye mask, warm socks and matching blanket. This set would make a great gift, or something for yourself if you have a trip coming up.

HOT WATER BOTTLE
If you’re feeling chilly, there is no better way to warm up than with a hot water bottle. This one in Fair Isle Print from Indigo is so cute and festive!

MUGS
These stoneware Le Creuset Mugs feature a minimal and sophisticated design and are perfect for tea, coffee or a festive drink. They come in a set of four, which is ideal for Holiday hosting.

LIP BALM
This Fresh Sugar Lip Balm is super hydrating for winter lips. It’s a sheer colour that gives lasting moisture and essential sun protection. My go to is the rose flavour. It’s smells delicious and leaves you lips super smooth with the softest hint of colour.

HEAD PHONES
How chic are there Happy Plugs?! They combine design and performance with a Bluetooth 5.0 connection and up to 14 hours of playtime. They’re also on Sale for Black Friday!

POM POM TOQUE
Blogger Rachel Parcell’s new collection for Nordstrom is super chic, and worth checking out. This cable knit Cream Toque from her line with pom pom detail will keep you warm from the crisp winter air.

TEA
Kusmi Tea is one of the best tea companies in the world. Earl Grey is my go to flavour, and I love this one by Kusmi. It’s a classic black tea with bergamot and lemon peel. It’s all natural with no added sugar and comes in this beautiful eco friendly tin. You can get other flavours of Kusmi Tea (and there are MANY!) on Amazon.

HAND CREAM
I always love the The Body Shop’s Holiday Scents.This season, they’ve launched three delicious scents; Juicy Pear, Rich Plum and Warm Vanilla. These are limited edition for the Christmas season and come in all the classic Body Shop products like body butter and shower gel. My favourite is the Warm Vanilla Handcream. It’s lightweight and will make your hands softer and smoother (On sale for $8!)

BLANKET
You can never have enough warm and cozy blankets! This cream coloured one from Indigo is made out of fleece and oh so soft. This would make a great gift for the Holiday season.

LOUNGE SUIT
Whether you’re relaxing watching shows or lounging around during the Holidays, this Top and Matching Pants will keep you comfortable and cozy. The fabric is a super soft stretch and easy fit.

ESSENTIAL OILS
A few drops of Vitruvi’s Lavender Oil will instantly make you feel more relaxed. It’s a very soothing scent that is perfect to use after a busy day. I will often put some in my diffuser before getting ready for bed to ensure a peaceful nights sleep.

SLIPPERS
Complete your coziness with these Slippers! I love how fluffy this pair is. I often get friends and family slippers as presents for the Holidays. Cute, chic and oh so cozy!

WATCH
A few weeks ago, I was introduced to HAYU, and I’m completely addicted! It’s a streaming service where you can watch just about every reality TV show. You can go back and watch early seasons of shows like The Real Housewives, The Kardashians or Below Deck, along with shows from different countries like Britain’s Made in Chelsea. Try it out with their one month free trial and binge watch all your favourite reality shows over the Holidays!
