We Vancouverites are not as savvy in the cold weather as our fellow Canadians to the East. If the Temperature gauge slips below zero it strikes panic in the hearts of the west coasters who are more accustomed to the uncomfortable feeling of wet ankles than of frost bitten noses.
So what can I say? Stay indoors; make your home into a cozy den with clever accessories to keep you warm. Or head out into the frigid outdoors. There is sun out there! It’s not every day we get to walk outside without an umbrella (just remember to bundle up, and look cute too!)
Make your home cozy with a few key elements.
