This Winter Night

There are two ways to enjoy the long winter nights: either pretend I don't live here where it's cold or embrace all the great things about the season with snow. Tonight I am...

...lighting as many candles as I want...


...taking a luxurious hot shower with L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil...


...pouring another glass of red wine...


...sniffing my dozens of unopened perfume samples...


...keeping warm in my fluffy socks...


...indulging in a wintery pale manicure...


...and engaging in mental discourse with five great minds on the topic of winter.


What are you doing tonight?

  1. <3 I love this post! Unfortunately, though, my winter night is consisting entirely of audios, notes, and studying, so I haven't anything charming to add to this wonderful, wintery list :(

  2. Sounds like a perfect winter night!

    Here in LA it doesn't feel like winter at all, but I do have a good night coming up - my girlfriend planned a surprise date :) I have no idea what we're going to do! I'll let you know tomorrow . . .

    1. Just remember that I left this mysterious comment! We went to dinner at a cute little wine bar - delicious food and wine, then went to see a play. A really fun night, and it was so fun to have her plan the whole thing!

  3. Sounds wonderful! At the moment it's 35 degrees celcius and we're all lying around in front of the TV, watching a Japanese horror film (the original The Ring) and sipping iced tea...

    2. Yeah, I'm back from the beach now. I've got one more week at home before I return to the real world and work!

  4. That sounds lovely! Love fluffy socks ;) Since it's S.'s birthday, we're having friends over for dinner (BBQ pulled pork, cornbread, beans, strawberry cream pie, booze :P) and board games! We're a wild crowd, I know.

    1. What did you eat and what did you watch? I snuck in Jane Eyre and really enjoyed it. :)

  7. I love this post. It made me want to light a fire ... except we don't have a fireplace.

    I'd get a glass of wine, but there's a kitty on my shins, which are propped up on the ottoman under faux sheepskin--cat magnet. So instead I am drinking ice water from my insulated Kleen Kanteen and looking for swatches of Suqqu lipstick online, hoping I hate all of it.

    1. Oh, Zuzu, you always make me laugh. :D I have seen and heard that they are lovely. But your faux sheepskin/kitty combo sounds lovelier.

    1. Awww...get that sleep and feel better, girl! NyQuil always helps (but do not take DayQuil as that stuff will knock you out).

  12. Your Winter night sounds just like mine tonight :) Wine, a Wintery mani (Nubar's Marble Tower), and soon kickin' back with a good book (re-reading HP5) - love it! We have to tough it out somehow, right??

    1. I've yet to begin HP. Too many assigned readings... *sigh*

      But yes! Tough it out. Whatever makes us feel good. I'm a little stressed lately and it's making me burrow and seek out the best comforts.

  13. I'm late to the board, but thought I'd pop in to say I loved this post--- it was so cozy :) After reading it this weekend I actually felt inspired to relax in the tub and watch some youtube videos. It was quite relaxing except for the part where the videos wouldn't stream fast enough!

    1. Lol! Dovey, you know technology is borderline unacceptable in those kind of relaxing environments. ;) But so glad you had a nice, enjoyable winter night as well.

  14. I think I may have to borrow some aspects of your winter night. I need a bit of solace (not solstice, not sure what I was thinking) myself. So fluffy socks here I come.

    1. Solace is just the right word. I was a bit stressed and needed comfort by all means possible. Fluffy robes and socks make it all the better! Hope you got the recharge that you needed, Danny!
