Cozy places, warm clothes, heat at hand

Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston as John and Jennifer Grogan in "Marley and Me" (2008)
"Granny fashion is definitely in this year. Cable knit, oversized, warm and snuggly jumpers and cardigans are a comfy-clothes lover's dream. Paired with skinny jeans or a dress and tights, this relaxed and dressed down look was seen a lot on the Fall/Winter catwalks.Katherine Heigl is renowned for her love of a chunky cardigan and stylists for Jennifer Aniston's new film Wanderlust had her wrapped-up warm on the Los Angeles set in a long grey knit jacket with pockets".

"A longtime knitter, she fantasized about a cozy spot where knitting was the backdrop and visitors could take it from there. When she opened Knit Cafe, little did she realize it would become a pit stop for some of the town's grooviest players.Many of the folks who write and produce the television shows ''Friends'' and ''The Gilmore Girls'' are regulars. Clients of Ms. Hershberger's salon sidle in through the back door -- sometimes with foil and chemicals in their hair. Which perhaps helps explain why, whether you are packing chenille or Baby Cashmerino, knitting at Knit Cafe feels hip. Ms. Greer, who visits daily when she is not out of town on a movie set, may have something to do with that. The actress -- knowing the mousy stigma that can attach to those who make their own woolen goods -- has come up with a rule about knitting in public. ''You can do it, but only if you look really hot'', she said". Source:

If you warm your hands by holding a cup of hot coffee, you will have “warmer” thoughts about the people you meet. Even more importantly, you can train your hands (and other parts of your body) to become warm and/or relaxed with people.

"One of the effects of global warming in the sci-fi film is a totally ice-packed New York City and 20th Century Fox thought we warm West Coast journalists deserved a little taste of a what the East Coast has been suffering. Not too sure what to expect, I pull up and wonder why there is an urn of hot chocolate outside on a table. Jake pulls up in a Mercedes wearing a short-sleeved white tee and asks. "Do you think I'll need a sweater?". Uh, yeah, think so, Jake. The actor was given a long-sleeved sweatshirt and a heavy parka.

Me, my big fur-lined coat and hot chocolate joined Jake and others inside a huge icebox room like a meat locker without the meat, where a big block of ice will act as the screen. We sit on carved blocks of ice topped with some anti-slip material and Jake stands up and looks around.
  "I'm in this movie with Dennis Quaid, Sela Ward, Ian Holm and a great new young actress named Emmy Rossum".

TeenHollywood: Was it actually cold filming it?

Jake: When we filmed the movie we were on a pretty warm stage and faked a lot of cold. You guys are getting it worse here than we were when filming. Source:
