Perth is one of the windiest cities in the world. Even as the cold winds blow across our city, here are 9 ideas that will help you embrace winter:
1. Outdoor ice-skating
Grab your ice-skating shoes or rent a pair as you gracefully skate in outdoor winter ice skating rings at Elizabeth Quay’s Winter Wonderland, WinterWorld Fremantle and at Hillary Boat Harbour’s Frostival.
2. Indulge in hot chocolate
Hot chocolate cannot taste any better when sipped on a cold winter day.
3. Savour your favourite hot beverage
If hot chocolate's not your thing, there are plenty others to keep you warm - think apple cider, mulled wine, coffee, a wide array of tea and other winter-themed beverages to satisfy your craving.
4. Dust off your slow cooker
There are plenty of delicious and healthy slow cooker recipes to keep you warm throughout winters.
5. Light up your fire
It’s the perfect time to set your fireplace or fire-pit ablaze. Gather around it with family and friends enjoying the glow and warmth as special moments are created, punctuated with music and marshmallows toasted on an open fire.
6. Break out your favourite cosy sweaters.
If you want to stay warm during the winter months, there's nothing cosier than a classic knit sweater.
7. Rediscover your winter wardrobe
Welcome your winter wardrobe back. To go along with your cosy sweater, grab a cute hat, scarf, and gloves to complete your full winter look.
8. Just do nothing
There's nothing better than curling up by the fire with a book and a cup of hot cocoa, whilst being wrapped in a comfortable furry cover. Don't have a fireplace? Pulling up a video of a yule log on your TV will work almost as well.
9. The perfect excuse to sleep in
You have the perfect excuse to indulge in a few extra “Zzzz”s as you replenish your body with the much needed rest it requires.
