I’m always cold; no matter what time of year it is, you can bet that I’m shivering at some point during the day.
I don’t know why, but I’m not complaining – it’s much easier to warm up than it is to cool down, so I think I’ve got it pretty sweet!
I guess you could say I’m some kind of expert when it comes to getting cosy. Because of my constant coldness, I’ve perfected ways of feeling toasty without even putting the heating on!
Don’t Underestimate Hats
I love hats. Not only can they be extremely cute and awesome (see picture below of me wearing a woolly tiger hat at Download Festival which takes place in June), they also help keep heat from escaping your body, ultimately keeping you warm.
In fact, during the winter months, it’s very rare that you’ll see me without some form of hat on my head – even indoors!
Wear Warm Colours
Now, I’m not one for wearing colours – I much prefer wearing dark colours- but if you read my Autumnal Clothing Haul blog, you’ll notice that my tastes change once autumn arrives.
By wearing warm colours such as oranges and reds, I start to feel warmer somehow. It’s probably all psychological – much like how if you see a fire you automatically feel like you’re warming up, even if you’re nowhere near it.
Use Candles (Carefully!)
I absolutely love having a candle or two in my room when autumn comes around – especially if they smell like cinnamon. It’s a combination of fire and autumn related smell that seems to make my body temperature rise!
Couple this with a delicious hot apple tea – you’re sure to cosy up in no time!
Get Your Read On!
I know for a fact that reading is one of the best ways to get cosy; there are plenty of people that I know who grab a book before bed and give a few pages a read to get them feeling relaxed and ready for sleep.
As I mentioned previously, I start to read more when the temperature starts to drop. I love covering myself in a blanket and delving into a good story – a definite cosy feeling activator!
