Ingredients for a perfect winter weekend



We are officially in the midst the coldest days of the year.

And while this weekend I’m going to be travelling and walking here and there (will tell you where at the end of the post), enjoy for this Friday the inspiration for a perfect winter weekend, in collaboration with LOVEThESIGN. To be spent home, with soft blankets, cozy pillows, stacks of magazines and hot chocolates.

Freezing weather makes us appreciate even more the home warmth: just a few ingredients to make small relax moments special.

Sono ufficialmente le giornate più fredde dell’anno.

E mentre io questo weekend me ne starò in giro (dove, ve lo dico alla fine del post), vi lascio con delle ispirazioni per un perfetto weekend d’ inverno in collaborazione con LOVEThESIGN. In casa, tra coperte soffici, cuscini, riviste e cioccolate calde. 

Il gelo fuori ha anche qualche aspetto positivo, ovvero quello di farci apprezzare ancora di più il calore della casa: bastano pochi ingredienti per rendere speciali dei piccoli momenti di relax.winter-weekend
