9 Ways To Get Cozy This Winter

It doesn't matter if you live in Los Angeles of Toronto, it's always time to get cozy!

Do you feel that? Of course you do, it's freezing! Fear not, for the following is a list of 9 simple things you can use to cozy up and warm those goosebumps.

1. Cozy Blankets

Of course. The classic case of a bundle of blankets, layered on top of you wherever you perch. I find a nice checker pattern to be a comforting and calming look, plus they're definitely the softest. No contest.

2. Many Pillows!!!

When you look at a bed, do you see a space taken up just by the comforter or blankets? Absolutely not! Pillows are freaking EVERYWHERE, and yes, I also mean those ridiculous decorative pillows that end up tossed to the floor because they're too small or awkward for comfort. But that isn't to say having a nice pile of large, warm, fluffy pillows doesn't add to your coziness.

3. Socks?

The age old question of "do you sleep with or without socks" has no business when it comes to being cozy and keeping warm. Never let anyone tell you that wearing fun holiday socks that are extra-fuzzy-thick is a bad idea. You can never be too comfortable. Never. So allow yourself to be swallowed by the near pounds of fluff you decide to sandwich yourself in between. You deserve it.

4. Hot Cocoa!

If you search "cozy by a fire" you are bound to see some images of a cup of hot chocolate with that enticing steam rising, beckoning you to share in its warmth. This is a two-fold success choice, assuming you love chocolate. Right? If not, or there's a better reason you can't drink it, fret not, for there exists. . .

5. Coffee!!!

Or really any espresso drink. Mochas, cappuccinos, lattes, and Americanos are all in the ballgame this winter season, and your favorite coffee shop definitely has some exciting flavors of each to try. Though I'm not a fan of mint (because of toothpaste, of course), peppermint flavored drinks are always flooding out of Starbucks doors. So if you're feeling really wintry, go out and try that peppermint mocha you hear so much about.

6. Mittens

Or gloves. Or hand coverers (does anyone use this word?). Whatever terminology you prefer, we're all talking about the same thing. Style your snowy look (or just because its really chilly out--LA) with well-chosen mittens that compliment your outfit and your mood! Snowflakes are iconic, reindeer and Santas are hilarious sometimes, and even those colorful lights ones that can light up at the press of a button. Maybe that last one doesn't exist, but still, mittens are so important to upping your cozy.

7. Hats Galore!

Pom hats! Ear-covering hats! Hipster beanies! The limit does not exist! Well, only for production it does, but that doesn't take away from the importance of covering your noggin. Should you feel like venturing out into the tundra, equip yourself with the most effective, yet stylish as always, hat that will keep your head warm and give you cool points.

8. Fire!

No, don't run. I mean fire in a happy, controlled way! Like a fireplace! As the main photo exemplifies, having a place to sit in front of and warm up is essential to cozy living. You can even dry your wet hats and mittens that you were wearing simply because you read this far ahead in my article (thank you)! But the most important thing for ultimate coziness is. . .

9. Friends

Not the tv show. But grab a few of your best buddies and gather 'round the fire. Tell some fun winter stories or listen to Michael Buble, or really whoever you want, your choice. Your friends are the people who make you smile and feel all good inside, so why shouldn't you include them on your journey towards pure coziness. Whoever you add, just make sure you have a wonderful holiday time!

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
