10 Ways to Cozy Up for Fall in YXE

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 22, 2014 14:52

After several days of beyond beautiful weather in Saskatoon, looking out my rain drop spattered window this morning was a little bit of a downer. Within a few weeks that rain is bound to turn white, and the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a colder and snowier winter than usual. Dang. But then I remembered how much fun it can be to embrace cooler temperatures! Warm blankets by the fireplace with a hot cup of tea after a hearty meal- its these sorts of things that make the first snowfall a time for celebration. The change in season also brings forth new opportunities to support amazing local Saskatoon businesses. I’ve put together a little list that I hope will inspire coziness as we head into sweater weather in Saskatoon. 

1. Tucking into one of these quick and cozy meals at home. 

2. Staying warm with an adorable knit headband from Twisted Goods. 

3. Cuddling up in front of an electric fireplace from Warm & Art

4. Picking up a bottle of wine at Ingredients and sharing it near said fireplace. 

5. Enjoying the luxury of an Equipment cashmere sweater from Era Style Loft.

6. Installing a Dynamic Bath massage tub for the ultimate at-home warmth and relaxation experience. 

7. Trying this cute felted elbow sweater DIY. 

8. Sampling the seasonal delicacies on the fall menu at The Hollows or Leyda's

9. Rocking a DIY faux fur vest, with a vintage brooch from Back Then & Again.

10. Taking a friend for a creamy latte from Collective or City Perks.


What are your favourite ways to stay cozy during the colder months?
