Get Cozy for Fall with JRC

When Fall arrived at JRC in the flavourful forms of pumpkin spice and ginger crinkle, the weather was still on the warmer side. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, our days are becoming increasingly shorter and the weather definitely has us feeling like winter is just around the corner.

Fall is basically the season to prepare you for winter. It’s time to stock up on candles, tea, good books, and get yourself ready for the inevitable deep freeze that comes each year in Manitoba. Below are our best ways to get cozy for fall!

 

Sip On Something Warm

We all know there’s nothing like sitting at home with a cup of tea while watching Harry Potter as the days creep closer and closer to Halloween. We love anything Chai and Pumpkin… obviously. One of our favourite places to grab a tea from is our neighbour down the street from our Academy Road location, Cornelia Bean! A Winnipeg original, Cory and her team blend their own unique teas and they just received a facelift at their shop, too!

Get Lit

Light up those fall scented candles and fool everyone into thinking you are brewing some hot cider or baking sweet treats. Nothing quite gets you in the fall mood like the ambiance of a wooden wick and the warm glow of the flame. We love Coal and Canary‘s Sweater Weather box set. Each candle is the perfect size so you can burn all your favourite scents of the season.

Dress The Part

‘Tis the season for warm sweaters, cute coats and adorable beanies. The perk of fall is that you aren’t in full ‘protect-every-piece-of-skin’ mode that comes with Winter so you’re free to play with more options. Another neighbour of ours, Margot + Maude, has the cutest coats and accessories to get you ready for fall. Just pop-in and take a peek. You’ll leave with something, guaranteed!

Give Your Skin Some TLC

The air is dry and suddenly your skin is in need of more moisture and extra love. We give our skin some extra TLC this time of year to prepare it for the seasons to come. The best way we know how to do this is to leave it to the professionals! Ten Spa is one of our new go-to places for our treatments. A little exfoliation, a little massage and whole lot of relaxation are what we are after this time of year.

Flow It Out

Fall is basically the best time of year for Hot Yoga. The hot room feels cozy, you can still easily get to and from the studio without worrying about snowy road conditions, and the detox and clarity that come from a yoga practice pair nicely with the ‘letting go’ of fall. Moksha keeps us coming back for more cozy flows all fall long.
