Of course one of the things I enjoy most about Winter is the fashion, it's time for boots, hats and scarves and it's great to indulge in sumptuous fabrics like velvets and furs. Of course, these fabrics also make lovely soft furnishings too. We have the most divine cushions and throw rugs in the boutique, perfect for snuggling up into on a cold, dark evening.

Something else to look forward to is the snow season. While Australia's ski villages are not quite the same as those found in Europe or America, there is still a lot of fun to be had and hopefully with the cold prelude to Winter, it will be a great season. If skiing or snowboarding are not for you, then why not try my favourite activity to do while at the snow; consume some warming winter beverages like mulled (spiced) wine or a hot chocolate with schnapps- yum!
