Tastemaker Feed: Settling Cozily Into Winter

Groundhog’s Day brought it’s prediction last week: 6 more weeks of winter. That means it’s time to hunker down and learn to enjoy winter life. Instead of lamenting this chilly season’s resolve to stick around, try embracing what a cold, snowy day outside can mean for a cuddly-warm day inside.

For a little inspiration, let’s see how our VIP members are keeping things bright, warm, and cozy this winter.

Winter Tea

“One thing that is a must for me in the winter months, and is especially comforting, is a hot cup of tea There’s something so relaxing about cozying up on the cough or in bed with a good book and a nice, hot cup of tea.”
– Jennifer

We second Jennifer’s love of tea in the winter — nothing like holding a steamy mug, sipping on an herbal blend with a little lemon and honey, while the snow falls outside the window! See more of her winter wellness tips at Belle de Couture.


“Despite his puppy behavior, he has made a big impression on all of us and we love him dearly. He has a very special connection with our littlest, Ellie. They are the best of friends and it’s so beautiful watching them build their relationship.”
– Lynzy


“Bella is a mix of a Poodle and Golden Retriever and the mix is perfect!  She loves everyone, loves to play ball and uses her paws like hands.  It’s hilarious!  She’s also everyone’s favorite dog. Even our neighbors love her and spoil her with endless games of fetch and tons of treats and love!”
– Kasey

Nothing beats snuggling with your favorite little ones — human, canine, or feline! — when it’s cold out. We put these cute shots from Lynzy & Co. and All Things Mama together to reiterate that point. See the sweet smiles from the pups and their people alike, and start planning your day of snuggly relaxation with the family!


“Whether you’re trying to stay ahead of sickness or it’s already grabbed you, I think this Cara Cara Orange Smoothie is just the thing to add to your regimen. Besides looking appealing, it’s a quick and delicious fix.”
– Melodee

Boosting your Vitamin C intake keeps you healthier and more energetic during a season brimming with germs and sluggishness. Making this tasty (and pretty!) smoothie from Spaceships and Laser Beams is one way to keep germs out and energy in.

Now that you have some inspiration, go forth and enjoy these next 6 weeks of winter! Don’t forget to share with others, and comment with YOUR favorite way to embrace the winter chill.
