How to overcome winter blues

When I think of winter, I think of shorter days, dark gloomy skies and dreary mornings. My mind is flooded with images of never-ending rain, bitter cold, whistling winds, pale skin, bright blue veins, layered clothing, thick woollen socks, colds and flu, dull faces and early nights.

However, I have realised that perhaps winter isn't so bad after all. Although summer is undoubtedly my favourite season, winter is a good excuse to drink hot chocolate with marshmallows at any time throughout the day, curl up with a hot water bottle, go shopping for cashmere sweaters, admire the Christmas light displays, smell the roasted chestnuts along Oxford Street, go ice-skating, drink from Starbucks' seasonal red cups, visit Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and indulge in candy canes and gingerbread men!

Morning stretches
Green tea
Breakfast with my best friend
Cereal :)
Uni lectures in French, Spanish and Portuguese; constantly learning new things
Fresh kiwi-pineapple-banana smoothie
Spoke to my brother on the phone
Sweated in the gym
Listened to songs that resonate with an aspect of my life
Washed my hair with coconut shampoo
Let it dry naturally
My ASOS order arrived with my first pair of New Balance trainers
Got a load of washing done
Lit my favourite Dyptique scented candle 
Ticked some things off my "to do" list
