What I Don’t Want to Miss in Winter

Winter is finally here and, most importantly, Christmas time is here. Now you can’t deny nor escape from it.

Today is December 6th, Nikolaus, as we say and celebrate in Germany. An dieser Stelle einen schönen Nikolaus an alle Deutschen Leser. 🎅🏼

There are certain things I connect with the colder season and the holidays and whenever October turns to November I get that burst of excitement to get out everything Christmas and winter related.
There are very few things I love more than chains of lights. I got this amazing chain from Depot last year. It has prisms on it and I instantly fell in love. Though I didn’t hang it up last year (because I didn’t know how and where), I decided to hang it on my bed’s headboard this time and I’m so obsessed. It makes my bed look 10 times more cozy and festive and I love having these lights on while laying in bed on my laptop or phone.

You know what makes laying in there even more cozy? Having a hot chocolate next to you. I love love love love hot chocolate, especially with marshmallows (but no whipped cream) on top! 🤤
It instantly puts me in the most wintery mood and there’s no better feeling than being warmed from the inside by something so delicious.

Christmas markets (duh). This makes me so glad I live in Germany, particularly in Cologne – even though it’s on my bucket list to visit other country’s Christmas markets as well. Everyone loves them for obvious reasons. The atmosphere is unbeatable but especially the ones in Cologne are often so overfilled, but for me, it belongs to the whole Christmas market experience because I don’t know it any different.

Along with that, I love Christmas songs so much. I don’t know why, but I can’t listen to All I Want For Christmas, Last Christmas etc. enough for me to be over them.

Check out my Christmas playlist here.

There’s nothing I reach for more often (okay, maybe my phone) than hand lotion and lip balm. They’re must carry items in the colder seasons and I always have them around somewhere. I don’t have a favorite hand lotion, which is why I settled for the Balea Olive hand lotion for now (I’m open for recommendations!) but my all time favorite lip balms are EOS, even though most people won’t understand this. They moisturize my lips so well and I love the scents, especially the vanilla mint one. 😍

    Currently listening to your Christmas playlist! I tried to click it and it opened up my spotify app, but for some reason your playlist didn’t pop up so I had to manually search your name. Just wanted to let you know! Otherwise, great post!!
