Although it’s still winter, and I would much prefer it to be over already, the colder temperatures mean that we can hygge for a little while longer. Get cozy. Stay warm. And maybe treat yourself to something special this weekend.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
We are heading into puffy coat season here in Waterloo. Each year, I’m on the look out for a new winter coat (I get so tired of mine by the end of a season). Sometimes I get lucky and I invest in something new, but this doesn’t happen every year. Coats are definitely an investment. Now with the brand names and the high-tech fabrics, winter coats can get pricey. Here’s just a small selection of some of the white puffers that are in the marketplace.

Joinville, $1630, Moncler
*I’m just assuming that puffy coats are the warmest ones on the market. My own puffy coat is certainly the warmest option in my closet (though it’s not the prettiest).
Yesterday, I reviewed the Four Points by Sheraton in Kingston, Ontario. Today, I’m sharing some of the photos I took of places and spaces around the city.
brrr…just a tad chilly!

Oh my goodness. It feels like -30C this morning. What?! How do you stay warm during these days of frigid temperatures? Here are five of the ways I’m staying warm (or trying really hard to).
1. I wear layers of wool sweaters. This week I’ve discovered that wearing two wool sweaters is much better than wearing one.

2. My office is fairly cold, so I keep my space heater on for most of the day. At home, I keep my house at about 72F and it’s working out well.

3. I love blankets, so I make sure there’s always one (or several) within reach of my seat on the couch.

4. Tea. Coffee. Mulled wine. Warm drinks of any kind are a must.
5. Boots. I don’t think I can live without my Sorel boots and UGGs. Happy feet.¬†The. Best.
¬†Have a great weekend dear readers! And do send over any tips for staying warm, please!
