When I was younger I always hated getting into warm clothes, because I felt like bundling up was hardly stylish. I would pile on layers until I felt warm enough, but refused to wear sensible winter boots, and coats. Which probably explains why I've had frostbite on my poor little ears. It wasn't until I discovered Swedish and Finnish style blogs that I realized staying warm could look good. The girls of Tjesajten give the best description of Manitoba cold, and how to make it work.
I can't remember where this one is from, sorry.
Therefore, the first of my gift guides (why not!) will focus on the gift of warmth.
