Winter Inspiration Board

What is your first reaction when I say the word "Winter"?
Do you rejoice for the moody days and cozy outfits, or do you lament the cold and refuse to surface from a grumpy stupor until Spring? I personally fall in to the latter category. I've always been a Summer gal; the months of June-August are by far my least favourite and it's all because those are the Winter months here in Australia. We've experienced our first bought of Winter weather over the past week or so and I can already feel a sense of dread taking hold of me.

At the start of every new season, I like to create a sort of mood board. The Winter board is always the most important. It helps to cheer my up somewhat and set the tone for the colder months, reminding me that although Summer is quite long gone, Winter can still hold the promise of beautiful things if I let it.

  1. I literally thrive on sunshine. I don't know why, but the weather can drastically affect my mood, and I much prefer it when the sky is bright and sunny, but there's still so many great things to Winter that I try to keep in mind.

    Hot drinks, electric blankets, watching movies in front of the heater - these are the things I cling to whilst I'm (not so) patiently waiting for that sunshine to come back! 😊

  2. I forget that it's winter down under! I actually love the winter, but mainly for the fashion and makeup - like these picks you've chosen. Those smokey eyes are on point! And that lip! Still need to find the perfect shade for me!

  4. I'm actually happy it's summer right now because winter is long in the midwest of the states. lol

  5. You and I are exactly the same, girl! I'm always so glum during the Winter. There'll be a whole lot of watching movies while drinking hot drinks in front of the heater on my part this year. That's for sure. :P x

  6. LET'S SWAP! You can come like in Australia for the next three months and I'll take your place up there. :P I do agree, though. Winter make-up is much more my style than Summer. I like a dark, bold look. :) xx

  7. Oh man, I feel ya there! Even though it's literally day 1 of Winter, I can't wait for warmer weather. An inspiration board definitely made me feel slightly less ugh about the season, though. Definitely give it a try if you need a pick-me-up. :) xx

  8. Oh man, I could imagine! D: Here I am complaining about Winter, when our "cold" weather is nothing compared to how it is over there. Enjoy that sun for me! :) x

  9. Nice. That oatmeal looks so delicious. I could also go for a white russian.

    I prefer the warmth to the cold!

    Winter all the way! I'd definitely rather be cold and have to warm up than be hot and have to cool off:-)

    Here in India, summers are really too harsh when the temperature in May - June soars as high as 45degrees.. I'm rather a winter girl who loves to soak the wintery sun, enjoy eating out & travelling during those months.

  13. I got confused as to why you were talking about winter when summer is just setting in but then remembered Australia and UK are opposite weather wise. I love your mood board

  16. Oh wow, we are literally moving into the summer here on the east coast of the US so I totally understand being a summer gal myself. I love the sun and all signs of spring and summer. Your mood board looks very nice. Winter reminds me of big cozy coats and hot chocolate or tea.

  17. I like how you think! I actually DO have family in Australia! Near Sydney, Shepparton (?), and Perth!

  18. Winter makes me think of ice and the color blue as well as fire places and comfort food. BTW that onion soup looks so delish! I am here in Texas USA and Summer gives me an entire different thought and emotions! Can you say HOT?!?!?!?

    It was sweltering hot in India and winters seems so far far away! My winter board would have toasted marshmallows, hot chocolate, grey cardigans and fluffy slippers :)
