Life Hacks for those Snow Days ❄️⛄️

Happy FriYAY!

#FF is a bit hit on Twitter every FriYAY! Casually having a conversation with Helen
who I’ve met through the blogging community. May I point out she’s super supportive! Thanks 🙌🏻 I had this idea spring to mind.Why not write a short Top Tips guide for surviving  in this awful cold weather, that’s hit us here in the UK!

First of all, us Brit’s aren’t used to it. Everything goes caput. Businesses close. Accidents increase, it’s absolutely awful.

Facebook is covered in stories, the majority being bad. The main message currently is ‘Only Travel if necessary!’ Now, I’ve still had to go to work but “luckily” for me, I live close to where I work *rolls eyes* Wahoo 😩

So, today on my day off, I classed this as my “Snow Day”. The Beast from the East has caused a lot of disruption when it met Storm Emma for a cuppa, but I wanted to try get some nice photos. So, we went out for a little while today when it was calm. My face felt like Jack Frost was eating me alive. It was So cold! -3 but it felt like -11 so the weather reports say.

So with my fellow Bloggers ( click on the photo to view their Blogs)

I asked what’s your Top Tips to survive these conditions and you said:



I absolutely agree!!! Some great tips here!


  1. Stay warm – wrap up and layer up
  2. Have hot drinks throughout the day
  3. Use your hot water bottle, neck warmers, hand/feet warmers
  4. Wear fluffy socks
  5. Waterproof footwear
  6. Earmuffs, hats, gloves, scarfs – Don’t forget!
  7. Eat tasty food
  8. Find all blankets you own and use them all at once
  9. Watch a movie
  10. Only travel if necessary. Keep up to date with the latest travel information around you in your area.
  11. Be Safe! Help who you can at this time. Whether this be a friend, family member or someone who is homeless.

What’s your best tip??

  1. Love this post! The whole country definitely goes to ruin when we have a bit of snow! Taking a hot water bottle out with you is such a good idea though, I haven’t braved going out in it today to take pretty pictures though I feel the cold way too much!

      1. At least you got out for a little while, I think I might go out tomorrow not to take pictures just to get out of the house for a bit as I’m going crazy staying in! I’ll definitely have about 7 layers on if I do go out though! I’ll try my best, you too!!xx

  2. Great post, us Brits sure do know how to make a mountain out of a ‘snow-molehill’ but I too enjoyed the delights of snowday. Me and my boys waited for the blizzard style weather to die down; and in the parts that it did then we ventured out and dived around in the snow. Even our little Pug, Harry liked it. 🙂

        Would it be ok to post a link here? Or instead, contact me via my blog ‘contact page’, as this maybe seen as commercial.
