Light a candle

We show you how to cosy up in style and be ready for a glamorous, yet warm winter-we don?t want you to freeze your proverbials off!Light a candle: in fact, light a few, and put them everywhere; in the kitchen, windowsills, bathroom and of course by your bed. If you do have a fireplace and aren?t allowed to use it because burning of woods in Australia is considered a pollutant, then stack a whole host of candles in it instead. Not only does it look fantastic, but creates a very cool, bohemian chic ambience as well.

It?s all in the senses: The Lebanese grow orange blossom and jasmine outside their toilet windows and anywhere there are drains to keep the air smelling sweet. It?s a fantastically good idea and one we should employ here. It not only looks pretty, but this floral display will make your house smell divine

It’s all in the senses

and look like something out of Vogue Living.The Throw: Snuggle up with warm, soft and furry throws. Have one on standby in front of the telly or as an extra warmer while sitting at your desk. Throws look great on your bed, sofa or armchairs. Our favourite is definitely the Flou range. Flou offer the most extensive range of beds, bed linens and accessories. You won?t go past their oversized polar fleece throw rugs. It?s a great way to add a bold splash of colour. Our favourites are camel, turquoise, olive, burnt orange, fuchsia, golden yellow and apple green. They are machine washable and we can assure you they will last for years and years. For further information on Flou designs head to 188 Chalmers St, Surry Hills, Sydney or head to www.flou.it

Warm your toes: Make sure you get out of bed and step into something extra toasty. Our tip? Wear woollen or cashmere socks around the house or head to China Town in your nearest city and purchase a pair of boho chic Chinese slippers. They not only look slick but are incredibly comfy as well. Oh, did we mention they are a bargain as well? Even better ? they shouldn?t cost you anymore than around $20.

Tub time: Not everyone has one, but if you are one of the lucky ones jump in the tub armed with a glass of wine. We suggest adding a few drops of lavender and peppermint oil for the ultimate sensual haven. Or try Jurlique?s Rose Shower Gel (www.davidjones.com.au) or Kiehl?s shower gels from meccacosmetica.com.au they are both pure bliss and a brilliant way to relax.
