Synonyms are weird because if you invite someone to your cottage in the forest that just sounds nice and cozy, but if I invite you to my cabin in the woods you’re going to die.
Funky nature-made faces by stylist-designer-blogger, Justina Blakeney. Check out the whole set on her blog and if you’re feeling creative, why not go outside and try it yourself. I will be doing the same! :)

Bright Living Room with a Huge Picture Window
This looks kinda like a public library rather than a living room - not very cozy. But the window and fireplace are definitely something to remember!
A thought on books.
I have come to a conclusion recently. To make a book real and to taste all the flavours of a book you must read it alone.
You must allow yourself to feel all the emotions that the book gives you. If you want to cry, then cry. If you want to laugh, then laugh, if you want to throw the book across the room in anger then do so.
This is not always possible when reading a book in the company of others. Even more so if you are from a British culture where the norm is to keep your emotions to yourself, to only express them in private.
To immerse yourself fully in a book you should run the words over and over in your mouth, taste them, feel them, make them come to life.
So next time you read a book try it. Feel all the emotions the author meant for you to feel, imagine all the things the author meant for you to imagine. Make that your reality for a while.
Hmmm is this what they call escapism?
