Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a great day so far. This Holiday Season is my first one completely on my own and it’s really the first time I have been able to do things my own way. It’s been really fun to decorate my apartment and do all the Christmas things that I want to do. And one thing that I have really loved is finding new things that help me feel cozy and help warm up my apartment and just make me feel good. So today I thought I would share some of the absolute essential items that are keeping me nice and cozy this Holiday Season.
I have so many candles now and I can’t believe I was ever living without candles. I love the way they not only make my room smell nice, but they also bring a warmth that is very inviting and relaxing. I love having a candle burning while I am working, while I’m relaxing, and pretty much any time that I’m not sleeping. Without candles I just don’t feel like my room is nearly as comforting as it is with candles.
Mugs are really important because that’s where you put your warm drinks. Hot chocolate, coffee, and tea are all perfect for the colder months and you can’t really enjoy them without mugs. So I find that having a really good collection of mugs helps being the cozy feelings and it’s just super fun. And there are a ton of really inexpensive mugs that you can find just about anywhere you shop.
Throw blankets are essential not only to staying warm, but also for comfort and coziness. I love having several throw blankets around to provide the warmth and comfort I need this time of year. Blankets are soft, fuzzy, and just overall essentials to have on hand during the colder months. You can’t go wrong with gifting throw blankets and having several around your own house for yourself and others.
I basically live in leggings, especially since I work from home and see no point in putting on jeans everyday just to sit in my bedroom. So I really love leggings and the ones I got at Walmart are fleece lined on the inside. This is really great because they are thicker, softer, and help keep me warm. I love these leggings and the fact that I got two pair for $10 makes it even better. I highly recommend fleece lined leggings if you love leggings.
Who doesn’t love to cozy up with a nice book and a warm drink this time of year? It’s just the perfect setting and really sets the mood for a few hours of relaxation. A nice blanket also adds to the party and makes it even better. I love reading when it’s chilly outside and I have some time to just curl up in bed with a warm blanket, some hot chocolate, and a really good book I have been wanting to read.
It’s not really the Holiday Season if you aren’t playing and listening to Christmas music. So I think it is absolutely essential to have a Christmas playlist that you can have playing in the background for whatever you are doing. You can make one yourself or find one that someone else has curated that you love. Regardless, having a Christmas playlist makes everything seem a lot more magical this time of year.
Or bath bombs if that’s your jam. Regardless of your choice in bath accessories, having a nice bath to look forward to after a long day or week is essential to being warm and cozy this time of year. It really helps you relax and unwind and with the right bath bomb or bubble bath it can really help cleanse you from and negative feelings you might have. It’s always something I have on hand during the Holiday Season.
Winter fashion is my absolute favorite. I love all the layers, the sweaters, the jackets, the boots, and everything else you can wear in the Winter. It’s my favorite season for fashion. And one thing I think is essential no matter what and something everyone should have is at least one favorite chunky sweater. It just makes things so cozy and also fun and is just a good thing to have on hand for when you are cold.
And those are all the essentials that are helping me stay cozy this Holiday Season! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did.
