Baby, it’s cold outside, which means it’s time to find ways to keep warm from the inside out. Lit fireplaces, hot cocoa, and warm blankets are grand, but adding a little something will do the trick.
The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting longer, which means that winter is officially here. Keeping warm may be a hassle for many, but the trick is to create the right ambiance to cozy up to.
