3 Reasons to love Winter

You know, the blogs I follow are mostly from America and all of them are bragging about the arrival of Summer and what it means. So I thought about it.. and why shouldn't we, in the Southern Hemisphere, celebrate the arrival of Winter?

Here's my list of what we can enjoy in the winter months:

1. It is extremely unlikely you will have any run ins with Parktown Prawns (if you're not sure what these are click here .) or any other weird bugs which the rain and heat bring. And you get to save on doom.

2. Great fashion - I don't know about you but I love winter fashion. Boots and scarfs are my favourites. In fact,  I've just come back from shopping where I picked up some really cute grey ankle boots which you can see here. Also I love the idea of layering clothes. Mr Price has some really pretty scarfs.

3. Soups! My mom makes the most delicious beef and vegetable soup, I'll post the recipe soon enough. (It's actually my late grandfather's recipe) However, if you feeling lazy, you can always opt for Woolies soups, I'm a huge fan of the chicken, sweetcorn and noodle soup :) Do you have any favourites? I am searching for a good homemade chicken noodle soup, do you have a recipe to recommend?
I found this really nice picture, and I hope it's true.. I could always do with more wisdom

And for those of you who are not crazy about the frosty mornings, layers of clothes or lack of sandals here's a song which you can sing along too
