Things We Love When the Weather Gets Cold

Things We Love When the Weather Gets Cold

It never bothered us anyway.

So the weather is getting colder as the days go by, and we can't help but get a little excited about what it brings us! Here are all of the things that make us happy when colder weather comes!

1. Wearing a coat without sweating

We all hate those warm days when it's raining and we have to wear a jacket but we hate to because we're just as soaked inside from sweat as we are on the outside from rain. No worrying about that when the weather gets colder!

2. When your breath makes a cloud for the first time!

I always get really excited when I can see my breath for the first time! I'm not the only one, am I?

3. All the best in shoe fashion.

All of the different kinds of boot options you have are just amazing! I love having a variety to choose from!

4. Sweaters.

Cozy knit sweaters and cardigans are the number one thing to wear when you want to stay nice a warm and super comfy!

5. Hot Drinks!

From a soothing cup of hot tea, to a rich mug of hot chocolate, it just doesn't feel the same in the summer! (Be careful not to burn your tongue!)

6. This one's for the ladies--SHAVING OUR LEGS!

Let's face it ladies, shaving our legs can become quite a hassle. But when the weather gets cold and we wear pants all the time, we get to shave less often and that is such a wonderful thing!

7. All of the soup!

Whether it be the classic chicken noodle soup or an over-the-top recipe, soup is the perfect food to warm us up and keep us full!

8. Getting cozy and reading a good book.

Nothing is better than reading one of your favorite books while it's raining (or even snowing) outside. Makes for a perfect day indoors!

9. Enjoying sitting by a toasty warm fire.

This is seriously the best thing to do on a cold evening. Just relax and stay warm!

10.Frost does look pretty magical...

Just look at it.

11. And it just looks simply enchanting outside!

Whether it's the leaves changing or a winter landscape, the scenery is undeniably beautiful!


These are one of my all-time favorite things to wear when it's cold outside! Give me a nice warm pair of wooly socks with a fun print on them and I'll be happy as can be!

13. The first snow of the season!

Admit it, unless you really hate it, you can't contain the excitement that comes with the first snow! (Even if it does melt the moment it hits the ground).

14. Counting down to our favorite holidays!

We can count down to our great Thanksgiving feasts, or get excited over how many Fridays are left until Christmas! Either way it's time to get excited about being able to spend time with those we love the most!

15. Layers upon layers of blankets!

Especially flannel sheets that are so soft and cozy that you never want to get out of bed!

Yes, we can complain about cold weather, but remember: none of these things we love would be really satisfying without it!

12 Gifts To Give Your Girlfriend On Valentine's Day

All of these gift ideas will for sure win over your girlfriend's heart this year!

To all the last-minute gift givers of Valentine's Day:

Don't panic. While I know how stressful it can be to get the perfect gift for your significant other, there are so many gift ideas that people always forget as an option. The best part about Valentine's day is not the gifts you get, but rather the romantic time you get to spend with your loved one. So don't worry about how expensive the gift is, just worry about how much thought you put into it. If you are still stuck on a gift to buy for your girlfriend, here are 12 ideas to get the ball rolling for you:

1. Chocolate

Chocolate is every woman's best friend. It also can be your wallet's best friend for this Valentine's Day season. A box of chocolate can warm your girlfriend's heart for a low price.

Buy a box on Amazon.

2. Flowers

Flowers. Another common, but romantic gift for your girlfriend. Get creative with it. Throw rose pedals all over the bed, or hand her a giant bouquet all at once. Either way I am sure she will love it.

Buy them on Amazon.

3. Giant Teddy Bear

This is a gift that I always found so adorable. While it can be obnoxious to purchase and carry around, the look on your girlfriend's face when she sees it will make it all worth it. She can cuddle the bear when you're not around. ;)

Buy one on Amazon.

4. Wine

Again, another luxury that is a woman's best friend. You cannot go wrong with buying your girlfriend a bottle, or bottles, of wine. The only question you have to ask yourself when buying it is, red or white?

Buy a set of glasses to match on Amazon.

5. A Couple's Massage

Um, hello. Who wouldn't love this gift? Not only is it a gift for her, but it is one for you as well. This gift can also be surprisingly cheap. Many places offer amazing deals during the Valentine's Day season!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with just taking your girlfriend to a romantic dinner on Valentine's Day. Dinner can be expensive enough as it is, the important thing to remember is to make memories that will last a lifetime during the meal.

7. A Movie

Again, nothing wrong with just going to a movie for the night. Sometimes a movie can set the level of romance you need for Valentine's Day.

Buy an AMC gift card on Amazon.

8. A Necklace

I know what you're thinking, too expensive! Don't throw away the necklace idea just yet. There are so many stores that sell such elegant necklaces, and they are decently priced as well. Check out stores like Alex and Ani, or Pandora for great deals, or just order from Amazon!

Buy one on Amazon.

9. A Ring

While this gift may only apply to a select few, imagine how memorable this day would be for your girlfriend. Do not think it is too cliche to propose to your girlfriend on Valentine's Day. Who cares how many other people do it, think about the joy it will bring her.

Buy a diamond ring on Amazon.

10. Clothes

Plan and buy your girlfriend's outfit for the night! It saves her time figuring out what to wear, and you just bought her clothes that she will absolutely adore!

Buy a sweater she will love on Amazon.

11. A One Night Stay at a Hotel

I don't think I have to say anything about this gift. You all know how romantic this is.

5 Things To Look For Before Signing A Lease

"Does it have a hallway closet?"


Spring is an exciting time of year. The trees are starting to get leaves again, flowers are blooming and the weather is starting to get nicer. Spring Break seems to be right around the corner. However, Spring also brings the dreaded apartment hunting season. Once your lease is up you can either renew it or find a new place. Finding a new apartment can be stressful but that shouldn't take the fun out of it. So, here is a list of things I wish I had known to look for before signing the lease.

Check for hallway closets

Once moving in you realize how much you miss that closet in the hallway and how much stuff you really put in there. That closet was the perfect place to stash those pesky cleaning supplies, the vacuum, and the broom. Those odds and ends like the extra paper towels and water bottles so nicely fit into that hallway closet you took for granted. Living without storage for these items has made our living area and kitchen look a mess and a nuisance when having to move it just to use the table.

Noise levels

Noise levels are something that is often forgotten about when walking through an apartment. You shouldn't be able to hear your roommates Netflix binge through the wall. What about the floors do the creak? Does the door make an annoying screech when opening it? What about the traffic outside does it bother you? Remember once you sign that lease you're stuck until it is up. Living with creaky doors and floors makes going to your 8 am class so much worse knowing you might wake your roommate by accident.


Damages are something most people notice before moving in but is there water damage? Water damage often means a leaking roof or dripping pipe that could become a worse issue later. Taking note of these damages before signing can prevent you from having to pay for them later.


It's college everyone parties it seems, but living by the parties can be annoying especially if you're trying to study. Partying usually happens a couple nights of the week but those couple nights seem like every night when attempting to study for an exam on Thirsty Thursday. Studying feels nearly impossible when you hear a raging party going on next door.

Kitchen storage

Storage in general as mentioned in number one is important. A place for your food in the kitchen makes a difference in how much you actually cook. When having a place for cans or boxes of pasta you feel less overwhelmed when you do cook them. Cooking with stuff on the counters isn't only annoying but it makes a mess to clean up. Storage for all your kitchen gadgets and dishes makes for an easier life and not just piles laying around.
