You maybe know from this post that I love Autumn. Winter, however, isn’t my favourite season. It’s cold, gloomy, and raining or snowing most of the time. So I have to freeze during the photo shoots (like here for example) and am most of the time not in best mood. In this blog post I show you ten tips on how to stay happy in winter.


1. Mulled wine

I drink a lot of tea in winter (find my favourite flavours here), but on very gloomy days I prefer mulled wine or punch. Sometimes I even make my own mulled wine with the help of red wine, sugar and spices.

2. Christmas Accessories

I love wearing winter accessories during festive seasons! What about star earrings from Glitter Paradise or festive vintage brooches? Perfect to get in mood for Christmas.

3. Go sledding

In winter there are normally only very few sunny days. But when the sun is out, I love to go sledding. This is not only a lot of fun, but also good for your body. After that, I like visiting Christmas markets and drinking mulled wine.

4. Flowers

Fresh flowers are perfect to brighten up your flat or house. I usually choose pink roses – they look so pretty and always make me happy. I even drink them, as you can read here.

5. Candles

When it’s getting dark outside at 5 p.m. I light my candles and enjoy their romantic light.

6. A cosy Cashmere Sweater

Is there something better in winter than enjoying a delicious cup of tea in a cosy cashmere sweater? I don’t think so. A lovely cashmere jumper is also perfect if you might have to open the door since it’s comfy but still stylish.

7. Chain of Lights

I love chain of lights for the same reason why I love candles: They look pretty and are perfect when it’s getting dark outside so early.

8. Reading

If it’s cold and wet outside, it’s the perfect time to read. A wonderful book is “Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour” by Dita von Teese with a lot of beauty, lifestyle, and fashion tips. Perfect to calm down and enjoy life.

9. Vacation Photos

Going through my summer vacation photos is one of my favourite activities in winter. Here are some from my days in Croatia.

10. Spring Collections

While most of the people are getting crazy due to the winter sales after Christmas, I’m looking forward to the new spring collections. Furthermore, I normally only use pastel colours for makeup and the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet perfume.
