Winter Favourites

Knits on Knits

Let's start off with the most obvious. I've been loving my knitwear the last few months, digging out all my winter clothes and layering up like crazy. I love winter for all the chunky jumpers and especially the roll necks this year which are great when it's really bitter cold and windy. 

The jumpers above are a mixture of Primark (fluffy jumper and dark grey jumper), River Island (purple jumper), H&M (patterned jumper), Topshop (light grey knit) and a random vintage shop in Nottingham (cream chunky knit). 

Loose Leaf Tea 

I started drinking loose leaf tea after coming back from China in October. I got so used to the fresh taste after drinking every day for almost 2 weeks and you really can tell the difference between it and tea bags. And in the winter tea is a standard right? I mean I could drink it everyday forever but in winter it just feels right. 

So far i've tried the Jasmine Green Tea, Cherry Rose Tea and the Vanilla Rooibos Tea. I personally prefer the Jasmine Green Tea and the Cherry Rose Tea, there very fragrant and have a sweeter taste? The Vanilla Rooibos Tea is still nice but the leaves are far smaller so you get some in your mouth when you drink it and it has more of an earthy taste to it? It's just different I guess. 

If you want to know more about loose leaf tea take a look at my Chinese/Herbal Tea post. You can find links to the tea I mentioned in this post if you fancy ordering some to try!

Comfort Food

I'm sure everyone's feeling a bit like this at the moment but I really am putting on my winter weight! At this time of year when it cold and dark a salad just doesn't cut it for me. All I keep craving it warm curries, stews and pies - proper homey food. And it's not the best food for your waistline but luckily where it's cold most of the time you're covering yourself up in layers or jumpers so I guess I can get away with it for the moment but i'm going to seriously need to go on a diet soon. But until then one of my all time favorite comfort food snacks is cheese, I honestly think I could live on cheese! A quick and easy snack for those cold winter nights has to be baked camembert, you can check out my post about it here.
