What it means to me <3

I see a lot of bloggers talking about the coming of Spring. Spring is my favourite weather =D I can’t blame them, but here, down under, we’re heading into the darkness that is Winter!

I actually used to really enjoy Winter, but in the last few years. I do not enjoy the darkness that Winter brings, but this year I want to change my entire mindset to Winter! There are many things to enjoy about Winter, it’s all about the mind. I think what I dislike about Winter the most is the darkness, how when you leave for the day it’s dark, when you go home, it’s dark.

But there’s nothing stopping me from bringing the light inside. I don’t mean the lights in the house.

I mean like, what’s stopping me from wearing light colours? Like your yellows, pinks, rainbows =D It’s not “stylish”, but I’m not stylish, lol

Make a plan a couple of nights to sit on the couch, watching t.v., reading a book. All snuggled up with a blanket, and I have a lot of those!

A lot of planning meals. Sometimes the weather is way to horrible to go food shopping after work. So planning in advance, means that there is less chance of needing to go to the shops.

And now that I have my Grans fake log heater. I can just put the light on that, I don’t even need to put the heating part on. Hot chocolate. A lot of the time, by Easter, it’s cold and a little chilly. We have the bigger heater on. It sounds so cozy already.

Long baths…with a hot chocolate.

Writing by fake log fire…with a hot chocolate, haha


Winter Question Tag … Blogmas Day 7

Thank you for this Know Your Worth Own Your Life! ❤

It’s a bit weird doing this, since it’s Summer in Australia, ,haha! But I love doing these things.

 Winter Question Tag … Blogmas Day 7

Here’s the list of questions
  1. What’s your favorite Winter sport?
    I LOVE watching ice-skating, winter or Summer. There’s something really beautiful about ice-skating.
  2. What’s your number one self care priority during colder weather?
    Trying to make sure that I don’t get a cold/flu. You know something? It usually works out pretty well, except when other people are involved (lol). I like my temperature comfortable, but during Winter, everyone wants to put the heater on full blast. I have actually gotten heat stroke during Winter once.
  3. What do you place at the top of your tree?
    At the moment it’s a red star, but it’s very “Russian” looking. So I am going to get something a little more ‘pleasant’, haha.
  4. Any Christmas Eve traditions?
    My family have quiet a few!
    + We have a secret santa with the adults, and we wrap the presents in newspaper
    + Well, my mum and I put up our Christmas tree on the 1st of December, and then take it down 12 days after Christmas.
    + Always a Turkey and a Ham
    + My mum makes the Christmas pudding and cake
    + You have to wear the hats.
  5. What is your definition of Christmas spirit?
    Anything that brings you Joy. Genuine Joy. You all know what I mean. Even if it’s just the food, haha.
  6. What is one thing you’ve always wished for?
    World Peace…I am completely serious! The last couple of years especially so. I know that I am very lucky and privileged, and honestly wish there was more I could do.
  7. What would you say in a Grown Up Christmas Letter to Santa?
    Hey dude, where’s the world peace I keep wishing for (haha)
  8. One object you’d think would be in every mom’s purse during the Winter?
    Tissues? I’m not a mother, but I can imagine that tissues would be very handy during Winter.
  9. What 3 movies do you watch every Christmas?
    1 Nightmare Before Christmas, of course
    2 The Muppets Christmas Carol
    3 Normally Jim Carrey’s “Grinch”
    In all honesty, they are usually the only ones I like to watch. The rest, if I get around to watching them, I watch them. So if I remember like Home Alone, I’ll watch it. I just don’t have many “must watch” Christmas films. I normally watch all my favourite tv shows Christmas specials.
  10. What’s you absolute favoritest part about this time of year?
    Even though, it’s completely stressful, I always have really lovely Christmas’s. Even though, at the moment, I’ve blocked my Dad. Still happy, haha. I just can’t deal with his poop at the moment.


That horrible time of year is really starting to make it’s entrance here. I am not a Winter fan, the only thing I don’t mind about it though. Is that people are much more likely to believe you when you say that you’re sick and you can’t come out. Oh but I do despise thee Winter. 6pm feels like 10pm, it’s much to hard to get changed in the mornings and before bed. Winter has the highest rate of suicide per season.

Oh, the horribleness of it all. So is there anything that you actually enjoy during Winter?

I suppose there is more of a excuse for chocolate, hot and luke warm,lol

I do look good in a jumper/sweater.

The Winter Solstice

As the Northern Hemisphere goes into their Summer Solstice…We, here, in the South…Are heading into our Winter Solstice.

The winter solstice, hiemal solstice or hibernal solstice, also known as midwinter, occurs when one of the Earth’s poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere.

Yule: The ancient Norsemen of Scandinavia celebrated Yule from the winter solstice through January. In recognition of the return of the sun, fathers and sons would bring home large logs, which became known as Yule logs. They would set one end of these logs on fire. Ancient Cultures viewed the Winter Solstice as a time of death and rebirth.

Some traditions hold that dark spirits walk the Earth on the Winter Solstice…So watch out tonight!

June Goals

  • Start making the candles.
  • Look into labels for candles.
  • Create something…That is something which I cannot tell you about yet, until it’s all set up…Watch this space for more…
  • Go for my drivers licence…At least my “L’s”
  • Go through my pants again and get rid of ones that don’t fit and aren’t not suitable/warm enough for Winter.

I find that the problem with Winter is that I don’t actually set up many goals for myself, because I am not a Winter person. My goals are mainly to stay inside for as long as humanely possibly to be honest. Which is why you’ll probably find a lot of my goals for the next couple of months, will be things I can do indoors most of the time.

Winter Favourites

Australia is now heading more and more into Winter…Never fear though! Now it’s time to crack out those Winter Time Favourites!

Winter Clothing:

I have a weakness for beanies. I used to really like ear muffs, but for some really weird reason, they make me feel off balanced.

Do you have any favourite Winter clothing, or accessory? 

Winter Food:

I have a favourite REALLY bad comfort food Winter dish, that I just love and I probably wont eat this Winter, because my cholesterol will go out the roof!…It’s two minute chicken noodles AND mac ‘n’ cheese.

Do you have a favourite Winter food?

Winter Drink:

There is nothing better than, well I think, a nice hot cup of tea on a cold Winters night. I can’t really drink coffee anymore, it heightens my anxiety. I hate drinking anything cold, but sometimes I get sick of drinking just tea. I also love hot chocolate or cocoa with marshmallows. I’m very much a kid at still really,lol.

What are some of your favourite Winter Drinks?

Winter Activities:

Of course above all my favourite activity is reading and writing. However this year I am (if you’ve been a regular reader of mine) I am planning on starting to make my own Candles. Who knows? Maybe this will become my favourite Winter activity! Maybe I’ll do this for Winter and Autumn, something else for Summer and Spring? Let’s see!

Do you have any specific Winter activities?

What did you or did not like about the first place you lived without your parents?

WELL…lol…The mistake I made was moving with a few friends whose one parents owned the house. Which meant they could do anything they wanted, and we could not. We also paid our rent on time (we paid our money directly to our ‘friends’parents, not through a landlord…BIG MISTAKE!) and yet the amount of times we had the water cut off was ridiculous! The thing that made us even angrier, I was the last person to move in. Instead of the rent being less for everyone, I had to pay the exact amount of money, and they had to keep paying the same amount of money…So they were getting MORE money and yet the water STILL kept being cut off. No one lives there anymore,lol.

Oh! Oh! Even if you were in a couple, we EACH had to pay $400 a month. So you couldn’t divide it between you. We had 6 people living there one time and we ALL paying $400 and still the water was getting cut off.

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

I have these black candles “Madison French – Moonlight Mist” They smell beautiful…I haven’t even burnt them yet! I buy some every time they have them, but they have them so few times, that I don’t want to burn them. I only have about 5 or 6 and I haven’t seen any of them for over year now.

Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?

I have never even seen a snow in Winter…I come from “Down Under”. So we don’t really get snow in Winter, up in the mountains in Victoria I believe they do…Not really anywhere else. So I cannot honestly answer, I’d probably enjoy a snowy day for that…a day,lol…I am no good with cold.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

49. Things you like about Winter

Even though it’s Summer here, it still actually feels like Winter is here still. It was literally reported on the news that over the pass week, at the start of the week. That there was going to be 3 months of rain in three days and it has most have definitely felt like it!

I am also not really a big “Winter” person, I tend to get very miserable and not being able to just head out when I want too can be frustrating (but this can also happen in Summer, just with a little heat). I find it can also be easier to cool down, then to warm up. Nothing to seems to ache in Spring/Summer either.

However, there are a few things that I do enjoy about Winter:

  • Having a hot drink, especially on a cold, rainy night. I like to just hold it in my hands.
  • It’s more of an excuse for cuddling!
  • Those long hot showers and baths.
  • I look good in a coat!
  • Wrap yourself up in bed with a good book!

What is your favorite cheese?

I LOVE Jarlsberg cheese (the yummy cheese with the holes in it). You can even buy it in slices and I do and I love it on my sandwiches.

Are you left or right handed?

I am left handed…I know, I know…Devil child,lol

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

I probably exercise my mind more than my body, but I definitely need to start exercising my body a lot more than I have been. I went to run for a bus, but I felt so stiff running for it and I as I was running for it, I realised I couldn’t even remember the last time that I ran…For anything,lol

Complete this sentence: Hot days are …

a long time coming! We are currently in the middle of Winter here and I am completely missing Summer!
