Today is “National Snow Day”. Hundreds of schools and businesses across the country are closed; towns and cities are blanketed in snow. Numerous flights have been suspended as Britain is very much gripped by this late winter blast. With weather forecasters predicting some further disruption over the next few days here’s a few simple ideas to keep you warm and have fun.


  1. Something warm to drink

Hot chocolate, tea or a really rich coffee is always nice, but if you want to really kick your drink game up a notch, try these recipe form the Guardians “best warming drinks” There’s a wonderful choice of spicy teas, beetroot milk and mulled wines to warm the cockles of the chilliest heart. Yum.


  1. Truly winter-up your wardrobe. 

Purchase some top-notch jackets and fleece sweaters, sweat pants, leg warmers and socks. Even with the heat on, it can still be cold inside the house, so invest in some warm clothes. This Original Montgomery Duffle is SUPER warm, comfy and cute. Layers always seem to work better than just one heavy coat, so get nice warm wool submariner sweater. Cotton absorbs moisture and heat, leaving you feeling cold and damp, which is the worst. These ridiculously snugly scarves are just brilliant for wrapping up warm and snug, so you’re ready for anything this last blast of winter has to offer.




  1. Order in some spicy food.

Don’t feel like leaving your house to brave the Arctic winds? Yeah, I don’t blame you. But since you gotta eat somehow, ordering in might be the most convenient way to go, and one of the best ways to work up a sweat is to eat some old-fashioned spicy food. Curry and coconut soup are some of my favourites, but a lovely spicy Indian or Mexican would work well too. Too much effort? Be a bit savvy, and just pop some red pepper flakes or chilli sauce dip to whatever you’re eating!


  1. Practice your dance moves.

Just because it’s blowing -15 outside doesn’t mean you should bundle up on the sofa and stay there for eternity. Make yourself a playlist and dance the cold away! YouTube old Britney videos and try to memorize the “Oops I did it again” dance. Okay, maybe not Britney but you get the idea. Have fun, throw some crazy shapes and stay warm.


  1. Do some baking.

Winter is the best time to whip out all those Pinterest recipes you’ve been eyeing all year. Not only does the oven keep you toasty, but some warm brownies will also do the trick. Win-win?


  1. Invest in some quality boots.

I know if my feet are cold, then the rest of me is freezing. If you leave your house, make sure you’re wearing boots that are made from good material that are not only warm, and will go with everything.


  1. Get warm, wear a hat.

Heat escapes from your head. Wear a hat you will really help protect yourself from the brunt of these arctic blasts. This is probably a little bit dramatic, but it’s still important to wear a hat. Wool Beanies from Original Montgomery Duffle are really cute, come in a lot of colours, and will keep your head warm and you looking great.


  1. Cuddle up

That’s pretty self-explanatory, right? Toasty fire, warm drinks, good food and maybe a great film. #gottoloveasnowday #snowday #originalmontgomery #dufflecoats #warmup
