Anoraks are making a comeback. They’re functional and stylish at the same time. Add a few gold accessories to make it more chic than sporty.Via Ol Green Eyes
We love this outfit idea by Ol Green Eyes. The pop of red and tan will cozy up any dark outfit.

Also loving this outfit idea by Curve Design. Yellow will make a smooth transition into the springtime. Try a colorful tunic that will keep you warm in the winter with a jacket, but can also be a great piece when the weather gets warmer.

The holiday season may be over, but this doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy our favorite holiday drinks! A popular drink for the holidays (beside the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte we posted about last year) is the eggnog latte. This yummy drink is served during the cold winter months, and perfect for the chilly January.
This drink is actually easier to make than you think! We’re going to share with you a quick and simple recipe to make at home. It may not be as fancy as ones from a coffee shop, but it is equally as delicious!

- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup eggnog
- 1-1/2 oz of brewed espresso (depending on how strong you want your latte)
- ground nutmeg (fresh preferred) for garnish and tasting
- whipped cream
Brew the espresso, and set it aside in a cup. In a saucepan, heat up the milk and eggnog on low-medium heat. Once it reaches a slow boil, remove from heat and pour it into the cup. (Be careful, it’s piping hot!) When you are ready to serve, top with a generous helping of whipped cream and sprinkle on some nutmeg on top to taste and garnish.
It’s as simple as that! Enjoy this cozy drink by the fireplace, and don’t forget to invite friends and family! We hope everyone will enjoy this quick recipe. Adjust it in any way you want to personalize it to your taste!
