It’s one of those wintery mornings after a week where everything was covered in snow. The only thing I’d love to do today is to rest by a lovely window, cozy up in warm knitted cardigans and indulge in a tasty cream tart. I think Sunday is the perfect day for some light-reading and to take the time to unwind for a little bit.

  • There is nothing more comforting than a hot cup of cocoa (or a glass of mulled wine) during the festive season. December is never as cold and snowy as I wish it was.

However, there’s plenty to enjoy this time of year, like a hot dulce de leche (with some tasty chocolate!).

But if you find yourself being stressed all the time, it might be time to do something about it. The inspiring blog Into Mind shares the best stress-busting tips for everyday. It’s time to unwind and enjoy the most magical month of the year!
