Warm up at this winter with something other than a typical cup of coffee.  Why not reach for a nice hot cup of hot chocolate that will thrill the sweet toothed child in us all.

To start with, get your ingredients ready. Fresh is always best and this is a simple concoction, where not many ingredients will be needed. A fine cup of hot chocolate only needs  milk, sugar, salt and bittersweet chocolate or cocoa powder.

After creating  a simple mug of hot cocoa, add something to step it up to rival the best. The possibilities are literally endless and here are some of the best options to add to the perfect cup of cocoa.

One of the must have types is the mint cocoa which paradoxically both soothes your throat and heats up the insides. This type is very easy to make; while the chocolate is cooling down in the cup, pour in a generous portion of peppermint oil and stir it for a few moments.

But if you’re not into mint in general, perhaps a cinnamon spice cocoa is more to the liking. To make it, simply add ground up cinnamon and a pinch of chili powder.  

There are many more options to take, such as placing in a drop peppermint oil. Whipped cream or the traditional marshmallows can be used if desired, so don’t be afraid of taking the initiative and trying out new variations.

Carry a variation on the arm with an authentic Louis Vuitton Multicolor Monogram Eliza Bag. This will serve a multiple of purposes for making any season just the right one for its use.

First of all, the pre-owned Louis Vuitton with its half moon frame features a bombardment of brightly colored LV monogram canvas that is truly eye-catching.  These hues are the stars against its black background designed exclusively for Louis Vuitton by Japanese pop artist, Takashi Murakami.

The used LV Eliza  is enhanced further by natural cowhide leather trim and edgy gold tone brass hardware that shouts stylish and sophisticated. A flap exterior pouch pocket with a gold tone adjustable belt buckle secures extra contents.

The strap is a single top handle and can be worn on the shoulder.

The interior of this pre-owned Louis Vuitton Eliza bag opens via a top zipper.  It is lined with dark chocolate micro fabric, and contains one inner wall pocket.

An authentic Louis Vuitton Multicolor Eliza Shoulder Bag is the perfect match to make a yearly statement. Leave the hot cocoa for winter only.
