Hello and welcome to a COLLAB for day 5! Today I have partnered up with gracedoesblogs who has a wonderfully aesthetically pleasing blog, which she recently updated, with quality, beautiful posts and some lovely photography!
So if you haven't already, go and check her out!
Today I will be going through 5 tips to help you stay warm in winter (which is especially helpful for after school when you stumble in after a chilly walk home), and 3 warm drink ideas to keep you oh so cosy! I can't wait for you to read Grace's post, so here's mine to get you in the mood...
Get yourself some reusable handwarmers and wrap them in cosy socks or even your gloves, this traps in that ever-escaping heat whilst giving you a soft and fluffy feeling for your little hands!
Hot water bottle
To prepare yourself for a comfy, cosy and deep sleep, pre-warm your bed by filling a hot water. bottle with boiling water and let sit while you perform your night routine. This way you can guve it a warm cuddle when you get tucked up into bed.
Invest in a cosy scarf or bobble hat
Wearing a scarf/Bobble hat and keeping your neck/head toasty is one of the most efficient ways to warm yourself up when out in the cold, bobble hats and cosy scarves are also a subtle but lovely way to spice up your winter outfit.

Heat up your cosy socks
If you're having a shower, bath, or are busy doing something before you're ready to get cosy, put your fluffy socks or slippers on the radiator or by a heater to make them extra toasty before you put them on. This is also a cool trick to use on gloves, hats, coats or clothes
Have a million baths
Winter is the perfect time to soak in a warm and wonderful bath full of silky smooth bath cremes and fizzy bombs. Not only does this warm you up in the evening, but it also graces your skin with sweet smelling moisture throughout these colder months.
