5 THINGS WHY I LIKE WINTER

1. TRAVEL.-We love to travel, it has been our passion for years. It is travel that drives us through our busy summer months. Given that we are both photographers sometimes it’s really hard to balance both work and travel. Especially for hubby as he is always on the go to photograph this new happening and/or that new festival. Hence the winter is our time off. It is time when we re-charge our batteries. We don’t take any jobs on as we try to escape from the dull & grey Britain. As I write this we are on our way to Spain & Morocco…and our captain just announced 22 degrees Celsius.

2. CLOTHES- I’m a summer girl, born and raised on the beach and parading around in just bikinis represent no problems to me. However there is something charming about winter clothes. Maybe it’s because I grow up in really hot climate with average of 15c in winter. We really don’t have any winters in Dubrovnik! All of that however changed when we moved back to UK and I suddenly discover my new love for hats, scarfs and gloves.

3. WINTER COSY- well this is more a state of a mind than a thing. Getting into your warm slippers after a cold day out is just priceless? Isn’t it? How about burning a fire in your log burner? Catching up in your next door local with some mates (yes, we live next door to a pub) J over a warm cider? These are the things that matter to me and make me one happy bunny even if it’s -3 outside.

4. CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR- Oh the joys of getting into yet another year and thinking, yes I survived! And how many New Year resolutions do I make this time? 10? 15? 100? Make them last until the end of January anyway…and don’t forget the presents, a lot of presents. Having a Christmas dinner with the folks while chatting with Nan over a glass of mulled wine? My favorite! Watching bad telly? Yep! Singing Christmas songs on the radio…eating…there is too much to add…

sale

5. SALE-s – Yes. You read correctly. Its sales that get my weak heart scream with joy, especially the ones after Christmas. Most of my bargains are from those sales. I hope you hit them already  Unfortunately sales don’t mix well with travel so this year my love for travel wins.

Big Merry Christmas to all,

Xoxo Ines

Winter Cosy

I have a confession to make. I’ve started buying Country Living & Country Homes & Interiors. I even asked my other half for a year subscription the other day. A perfect Christmas present. I mean whats the point of buying me something I don’t like? So this year I decided to ask for my presents in advance. Don’t get me wrong trough. I’m still really into my Vouge & Glamour and the joys of walking into shop spotting them on the shelves it’s beyond indescribable. However we have a house now, a home and its getting cold out there baby!

I’ve noticed this lovely duvet set in Country Living magazine the other day and I’m seriously considering to spend some monies. I just love the warm neutral colors and all the  patterns. I think it would look beautiful in my bedroom. I want it. I am always on a lookout for something new to buy and add to my home. Some cosy snoozy warm textiles to fill the space up & empty the wallet. Oh, the joys of spotting & SHOPing.
