Winter Wonderland

Today was the first day of Winter for us Australians. It's not quite like the Northern Hemisphere Winter but believe it or not we do actually get snow in some parts of Australia. Unfortunately, we don't in Sydney but they do in the Blue Mountains in the really cool winters, which is only about 2 hours west of Sydney. I personally love Winter - the boots, scarfs, woollen coats, fur, hot chocolate with marshmallows, homemade soup and rugging-up by a heater or fire. I don't think I'll be hitting the slopes this year but I would sure love to. Even though I went snowboarding year after year at Perisher (one of the Australian snowfield),  and have been to Europe, America & Canada in the Winter, I still get extremely excited whenever I see snow! I especially love a white Christmas and the magical atmosphere that comes with it. Everything just looks so beautiful covered in fresh white flakes of snow :) 

 Oh I get so excited about rugging-up in fur whether real or faux!

 Sure the traditional winter fur boots & knit sweater may be a little kitsch but I can't help love them :)
