Baby, it's cold outside.
Lately, the weather's been a bit…deceptive. It's mid-December and I don't have to trudge through snow, find balance upon icy sidewalks, or shield my face from the biting cold. Sometimes, I even find myself walking down the street with my jacket unzipped like an amazing bada** mocking the absence of cold weather. Despite the 40- and 50-degree weather we've experienced thus far, be warned: winter is coming. Mother Nature will catch us off-guard and pummel us with snow, sleet, and ice and she will laugh the whole time she’s doing it. It's going to get frigid and you're going to have to find someway to stay warm.
Be careful, though. Some things just don't cut it when you're trying to stay cozy. The radiator shuts off on its own volition as if it owns your homeostasis, the gloves you wear actually isolate your fingers and can thus make them colder, and, let's face it, your coat just doesn't cut it unless it's lined with an electric blanket.
"Then how will I stay warm during the imminent cold?" you ask? Well if you've got a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, fiancé, or even a friend with benefits (wouldn't recommend this, but that's another story), then you've got a way to stay warm that's better than that measly blanket on your bed. Whether you guys play hooky this week, or get close on the weekend, these seven sexy activities are sure to keep you warm.
Duh. If you're looking for things to heat up fast, this is the go-to option!
Sharing body heat is a great way to warm up. You and your beau can get close and comfy—plus, I'm sure he makes a better coat than your actual one.
3. Make A Romantic Fire
If you have a fireplace, then get that fire roaring! Snuggle up with your guy among blankets and pillows and let the romantic flames flicker.
Who doesn't like seeing their partner get in shape? It’s a very attractive attribute to see a person care about their health. You'll definitely stay warm working up a sweat and let’s be honest; a sexy six pack never hurt anyone!
5. Make A Blanket Fort
This is such a playful, fun activity. Think about it. When was the last time you made a blanket fort? It's probably been a while. Unless you have kids. Then you might have one in the living room right now. Construct a stellar fort with your guy or gal and cuddle up in this cozy, intimate space!
6. Warm Oil Massage
Warm oil + massage = a fantastic time. Treat yourselves and buy massage oil that warms to the touch. It'll be the best decision you make this winter, and your back muscles will thank you.
7. Bubble Bath
Skip the shower tonight and instead, fill up the tub with hot water and suds. A bubble bath is the perfect cap to the day, and it's even better with company! Light some candles and relax together in the warm, heavenly mix.
