How to Become a Cozy Adventuress⚔️🍂☕️
Updated: Sep 26, 2022
The Cozy Adventuress style is hiking boots paired with linen dresses & cups of tea while reading after slaying dragons.🐉 It almost has a feminine Lord of the Rings feel wrapped in coziness.☕️ It’s cozy rainy evenings spent by the fire & venturing through the forest on crisp autumn days.🍂
Whether it’s time spent exploring the wilds of the world or escaping into the pages of a great book with a burning candle at hand, this aesthetic is all about the soft savouring of cozy adventures.🌿⚔️
I'm so excited to share more about this project that is so dear to my heart! The Cozy Adventuress is someone who savors all the comforts of home yet still yearns for the wild wonders of adventure. It blends the best of both worlds in art and items that are cultivated to remind you that you are the heroine or hero of your own story and you have the power to create your own happy ending.🏔🏹🍂
Read below to see a variety of ways you can become a Cozy Adventuress or Adventurer!⚔️🌿
You don't have to know me for long before you realize I am obsessed with the delights of tea. Here are a few of my favourites that evoke the sense of cozy adventuring!
☕️ Honey Vanilla Chamomile Tea
☕️ Blackberry Sage Black Tea
☕️ Chai Tea with a healthy dash of Pumpkin Spice Creamer
☕️ Salted Caramel Tea
Nothing is quite so comforting as the warm smell of a freshly baked treat. Here are some that are perfect for soft evenings after grand days of adventure.
🍞 Seed Cake (A personal favourite of Bilbo Baggins)
🍞 Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips
🍞 Savoury Scones
🍞 Shortbread Cookies
Reading is a great and grand adventure all in itself and these books are some of my personal favourites for escaping into wonder.
📕 The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
📕 The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
📕 The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
📕 Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldee (Do note, that this book contains strong language)
📕 The Autumn Woodland Tea Party by Elle Steward (Yes, this one I wrote and illustrated myself! I hope you enjoy it.)
👒Dressing the Part
One of my favourite ways to be the heroine of my story, is dressing for occasion. Whether I'm spending the day at home, going to a Renaissance faire, or just running errands, adding a touch of whimsy to my everyday wardrobe reminds me that I'm made of magic.
Here's a few items and accessories I recommend you keep at hand incase any wizards come calling and ask you to join in an adventure:
Short or long, these are always perfect for adventures!
🥾 Arm Warmers
Arm warmers are the new vambraces, after all.
🥾 Elven Dress
Anything flowy and ethereal will do.
🥾 Hobbit Corset
Layer it over a cute dress or a blouse and skirt!
Flower crowns are perfect too if you're more of a hobbit at heart.
No self-respecting adventurer would be caught without their sword.
If you have long hair, elven braids and twists are always beautiful.
🥾 Hair bows
The perfect touch of cozy while keeping your hair out of your eyes while wandering.
🕯Setting the Scene
To me, ambiance and aesthetics are all about creating a space that is comforting and inviting. Here's a few in-theme ways to cultivate a cozy and adventurous atmosphere.
🧦 Light Candles or Diffuse Essentials Oils
Warm scents like vanilla and musk are great for culivating coziness.
Woodsy scents like vetiver, pine, or cedarwood are perfect for feeling adventurous.
Combine warm and woodsy scents for that cozy and adventurous feel!
🧦 Wear Fuzzy Socks or Slippers
🧦 Open the Windows to Let in the Fresh Air
🧦 Snuggle Up with Soft Blankets
🧦 Create a cozy corner in your space where you can rest after slaying your dragons.
Ideally by a fireplace or window.
