Cozy Corner

Is it fall or winter now?

I can't tell.
Last year was so mild that I didn't have to put on the marshmallow coat once. On the first chilly day this season, I had trouble remembering where any extra layers were stored. That being said, when I did recall the location of my winter duds, I found a used tissue and a couple of wadded up dollar bills in a coat pocket - score!

Whatever weather may come our way this year, some old standbys and new finds are listed below to help transition into hibernation mode.

This Lafco apple scented candle has been burning almost daily in my household. 

It's on the spendy side, but it is mega-sized and the hand-blown art glass vessel can be used long after the soy candle has done its duty.

I've had my eye on these reversible throws for a couple of years now. Maybe this will be my year?

When it has the word cozy in the title, it better live up to the definition.

This oversized cardigan almost is a throw.

Whenever I can get away with wearing pajamas and/or a blanket-like article as clothing, I will.

Along the same line, you can totally get away with wearing these slippers on your morning coffee run:

I feel like everyone needs an outdoorsy/athletic vest. This one will do nicely:
You will be especially happy with your vest when you try and get in one (or two) more hikes before heavy snows.
See? Happy.

Take a hike!

I mean that in the nicest possible way.

I'm finally joining the cool kids with my unusual purchase of modern technology - an ipad! But I can't be too George Jetson. Instead, I chose to disguise my tech in a back to school themed cover. 

With my newfound love of an ipad, I've been having some late nights streaming tv shows and documentaries on Netflix. So I'll need my coffee in the morning. If you don't feel like scuffing your new Cally slippers to head up to Starbucks in order to easily spend the crumpled dollars that had been hidden years in your pocket, then you are in LUCK!

I stumbled upon THIS super simple, super simple syrup recipe that will easily surpass your Starbucks pumpkin spice latte experience. And it is so cheap and quick to whip up. Thank you, Pinned Down Pinup!

You know what would be tasty with that fancy coffee you've got going? These:

I will also be making myself comfortable in a few movie theatres this month, with a slew of epic movies being released:

As you can see, I have no trouble finding ways to warm up, curl up, and hunker down during these less lit days. I hope you follow my lead.
