Well, we can officially turn the heaters on with no consequences! We’ve hit that stage of Autumn in Canberra where we may as well just say it’s winter anyway. The silver lining? This whole isolation situation means we have a very solid excuse to stay inside in the warmth!
Here’s our list of the 10 must-have items for this season’s isolation winter:
Oversized. Blanket. Hoodie. Need we say anymore? This ultra-soft wearable blanket (that comes in stacks of cute prints!) will keep you warm all day and night long. Get it here.
Weighted blankets are all the rage right now. Stay warm, decompress mentally and be cosy with the weight of hundreds of eco-friendly glass and glass beads over you. Get one here, or if you’re lucky, you might even be able to snag one from Harris Scarfe!
They’re an Aussie classic! No winter survival kit is complete without a cosy pair of Uggs to keep your feet warm (especially on a late night dessert run!). Did you know that Canberra has it’s own dedicated Original Ugg Outlet Store at our Canberra Outlet Centre? There’s nothing better than Uggs except when they’re on sale!
You’ve probably heard it from the “adults” in your life – it’s worth investing money into good bed linen. Not only do you need your bed to be comfortable to sleep in, but you want it to look good in your room too! Check out Adairs or Sheridan for some absolutely stunning velvet quilt covers, that will leave you wishing you could stay in bed all day to soak up that luxe feeling.
Nintendo Switch + Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Unless you’ve been under a rock, we’re sure you’ve heard of animal crossing! Live your ideal idyllic lifestyle designing your dream island paradise and home. The perfect game to get swept away in the stunnings graphics and forget the troubles of the outside world. Pick it up from JB Hi-Fi or EB Games.
A slow cooker is an absolute must for winter. You can throw everything in there from soups, full hearty dinners, bread and even dessert! Chop up your ingredients, throw it all in and forget all about it for 4-8 hours while the house slowly fills up with the delicious smell of a low-maintenance dinner. Check out Harris Scarfe or JB Hi-Fi for an affordable, quality slow cooker.
It speaks for itself! If you live in Canberra and don’t have a black puffer jacket or something similar you should definitely get one ASAP. It’s practically an initiation into being a Canberran.
Frank Body Brightening Vitamin C Mask
For some insane reason, isolation is making our skin worse than ever! There’s nothing better than a hydrating (and vegan!) facemask to repair the damage and make us feel a little more normal again.
Crystal infused bath soak
Set your intentions and relax at the same time, with a soothing crystal infused bath soak. This way you can look after your body and mind at the same time. Get your soak here.
We don’t know about you but we know how easy it can be to get distracted and forget all about your cup of coffee or tea only to take another sip and find out that it’s cold! Well now you don’t need to worry, with a simple USB plug-in, you can keep your coffee warm all day! Get it from Amazon here.
