Lately I have been jamming to Against the Current, Camila Cabello, and Bat for Lashes through this winter weather. It finally did rain and I danced in puddles a little too much. I am seeking warmth in oil burners, lavender, and lit candles. It’s nice to have a shift in décor to remind you of wildflowers, honey sweet birdsong, and warmth on your skin. While I am truly enjoying the cold air and winter sun, a growing part of me is looking forward to springtime.
Still I have been making moon-milks (Moon Juice protein powder + raw cacao) and crocheting until the dawn (oops) I am making the most of winter. With a new year, I think of bloom, growth, and new beginnings. This January has been a mix of gatherings, rekindling friendships, and honestly – after long work days, ll you want is a bit of a rejuvenation (especially in the home!) I partnered up with Photowall to decorate my space and here’s the reveal of my reading nook + bed.
At the beginning of the year (roughly so) I select a word that will serve me through the year, standing for something I wish to invite and guide me. This year that word is rooted. It serves a purpose on a physical and metaphorical level.
I am truly motivated and enamored by passion. Feeling the spark, the fire of desire. However, it requires balance. It requires honing in with your voice and aligning with what makes you feel passionate, what lights up your spirit.
Rooted: 1. cause (a plant or cutting) to grow roots.
- establish deeply and firmly.
It’s all cozy here in November. Low temperatures and dusk sets in around 5. There is a calmer atmosphere to the days and a desire to go inward.
Hygge is the Danish concept of coziness and mindfulness. Embracing the season you are in an making the time to care for oneself. When it comes to the mindset of cold autumn nights, transitioning to winter light – I reach toward an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.
October is my preferred month. It’s when the colors change into vibrant hues: the yellow & red of tree tops, soon to fall leaving behind a dance of leaves and whispering branch-song. The temperatures drop as we seek to find warmth in cozy knits + by the fire.
There are still a few days before October ends. I added some new pieces to my room in honor of fall + gathering. Like crunchy leaves and the lovely sunsets permeating you to wake. I wish Octobers were endless. Nothing beats being curled up in a blanket watching Hocus Pocus with a slice of pumpkin pie + cider.
