March 30th - April 2nd

Our next few days off were in Vermont after Slow Magic played a show at a venue in my hometown called Higher Ground. Having a show there was super exciting for me because I had never been to a show there before and because a lot of friends and family who had never seen SM play live were able to come and see what we do exactly. After the show, we had a few days off to relax at my parent’s house, which was so needed. We went on walks, had home cooked meals, and baked (even Anton baked bread with my Mom). It was the best ♡

Christmas in Vermont

I wanted to share a few pics of our Christmas tree before it is too late! If you want to see our other Christmas trees, you can see them here and here :)

Out of all of the Christmas trees I decorated this year, this one is definitely my favorite. My dad picked it out and I think he did such a good job…it is like my dream tree! Anyways, before we came to Vermont, I began looking for a fake fur garland for the tree. I couldn’t find one that wasn’t super expensive, but I did end up finding this end piece of fake fur at Joann’s for around $2. I cut the fabric into four inch wide strips, folded them in half lengthwise and then secured them with a hot glue gun so that the back side of the fabric wouldn’t be visible. In addition to the ornaments that we already had, I ordered two more sets of ornaments (one set bigger than the other) in pink and blue, and picked up a few extra big baby blue ornaments at Lowe’s. I think having many different sizes of ornaments helped to add dimension making the overall appearance of the tree more magical.

On Christmas Eve, it started snowing, which was so exciting…having a snowy Christmas is the best! For Christmas Eve dinner, I taught my dad how to roast a chicken. I never really get to do anything like that with my dad (I usually cook with my mother, but she had a really bad cold and was unable to help), which made it one of my favorite parts of Christmas.

On Christmas day, the sun came out and it was so dreamy. After we all woke up, we opened our presents by the fire and then we had our Christmas brunch. Afterwards, Slow Magic and I went on a walk before heading to my cousin’s house.

I know it isn’t thanksgiving yet, but as I mentioned before, I am somehow already in complete Christmas mode so this will be my last fall themed post of the season. The leaves have fallen off the trees and I find that they only way to not be sad about it is to just focus on the upcoming holidays. My head is all like 🎄🎁🎵❄️🎄

Here are a few photos from VT (both before and after the leaves have fallen) : Playing in the leaves, Slow Magic stacking SO much wood for the fireplace to get ready for winter, and pics from when I went with my dad and SM to a sugar house to refill my mother’s gigantic thing of maple syrup (so Vermont lol).

Right now, we are in the middle of packing for a short trip to Aspen to celebrate our anniversary (it is where SM proposed) as well as Thanksgiving. I am hoping there will be some snow there, I’ll let you know! xx

I have been looking for the perfect cream cable knit sweater, and while I have not yet found one, I did find this cream cable knit cardigan while we were in Tokyo. It is so cozy and fall…I love it.

Anyways, we took these pics when there were still leaves on the trees and now that they are almost all gone, I am suddenly in such a Christmas mood. Seriously…Hallmark movies, Christmas music and everything. Does anyone else feel like this lol?

Cozy Essentials

1. Diptyque Thé candle

Although I do not like having too many scented candles around, I think that having one good quality one is important for making things cozy (regardless of the season). Diptyque candles are my favorite and even though I love getting their holiday candles, I feel weird burning them after the holiday season. Their Thé candle is a warm candle that I think makes sense all season (other good winter ones are amber and orange!).

2. Weleda Skin Food

In my opinion, being cozy is about being comfortable and having dry skin is not comfortable. That being said, Weleda’s Skin Food, is my go to lotion. It is organic and I love the way it smells (Slow Magic does too)!

3. 100% pure silk scrunchie

I think silk is a curly hair essential and after searching for quite a bit I was so happy to finally find these.

4. cable knit blanket

I love this blanket!

5. Davines hair mask

For me, self care is an important part of being cozy and I like to do hair masks literally all of the time. I picked this one up when we were in Tokyo and I really like the way it smells (SM thinks it smells like axe body spray but idc haha).

6. candles

I always buy unscented white or cream ones in different sizes.

7. Over-the-knee socks

I am very into over-the-knee socks (maybe you have noticed lol) and I think they are essential for coziness.

8. Ugg Women’s Mini Bailey Button Boot

I love these, I have a similar pair that I keep in Vermont and I have worn them so much that they are getting worn out (I look forward to wearing them every time I come home)!
