As international media lights up with summer fashions and longer days, back in the southern hemisphere we're getting cozy. How, while the sun turns away, can you bring a little magic to the winter in Melbourne?

Melbourne is notoriously changeable - four seasons in one day, as they say. The winter, however, is pretty much all one colour - grey. Try these tips and events to bring a bit of sparkle to the months of monochrome.

1. Whip out the old Singer and try your hand at some crafts, getting inspiration from the many cheap fabric stores in the big city.

2. Find someone to share your hot chocolate with by checking out the single scene from the comfort of your own house with online dating.

3. Grab some tickets to the Melbourne International Film Festival and stay warm and dry in front of the big screen.

4. Get snug with a hearty meal and some live music at The Snug Public House in Brunwick.

5. As the weather finally breaks, it's time to let the sun bring a bit of creativity to your mind and your pen with the Melbourne Writers Festival from August 26th.

6. Daydream - or go right ahead and plan - your next big bucket list holiday!.

7. Say hello to Norma Jeane with a quick day trip to Bendigo for the Marilyn Monroe exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery.

8. Save your skin and your wallet with a Low Tea Party.

9. Before you miss your chance, get back to childhood with tickets to the renowned Tim Minchin musical Matilda.

10. Switch your brain on with a course from Melbourne's Free University.

11. Rather than get lost in a minefield of negativity and trolling, refresh your internet and stumble upon something new to catch your heart.

12. It may not be the festive season, but that doesn't mean you can't pretend a little! Try your hand at some home made mulled wine from the chap who does it best.
