We’ve been talking about many things for A Month of Faves- mostly bookish- but today is all about winter survival. I live in the South where we do have cold weather- but nothing like many states. I have to recall a comment that Wesley at Library Educated said regarding a post of mine about the temp being 19 degrees for a few days this past February. She was all “19 degrees- that’s cute that you think that is REALLY cold!” Of course, for me it was cold- but for Wesley, land of unending snow and where the wind chill gets negative temps- I realize that 19 degrees probably felt like a summer day. But still.. I stand by the fact that it was VERY cold during those days 🙂
But enough about that- I’m sure you are dying to know exactly what T uses in her winter survival kit! Be sure and link up here- and then check out Estella’s Revenge!
1. Cozy warm blanket. I wrap up in this blanket and sit in my chair and stay all warm and relaxed while I read my book.
2. Yummy smelling candles. When I am at home, wrapped up in my fave blanket- enjoying either a glass of wine or a delicious hot chocolate- 9 times out of 10- a candle will be burning. I’ve been digging these Swan Creek Candles- made with soybeans and INTENSELY fragrant. But sometimes, I want to hear a fire crackling. Enter the Woodwick Candles. Even better- that particular one has these cut outs that shimmer and sparkle as the candle burns. LOVE.
3. Fetch Hats. (Yes, I’m still trying to make fetch happen!) When going out in the cold is unavoidable, I wear a headband wrap.
4. Lip Glosses. I can’t cruise the aisles at drugstores without checking out the lip gloss area (which is a good thing since I misplace more darn lip gloss than anyone I know!) These are just a few current faves (minus my Burt’s Bees Mango since it’s currently AWOL)
5. Lotions. Again, I have a lotion obsession. I keep them in my purse, at my office, by my chair, one in my car- I must have lotion. Especially when it’s cold. My hands crave the comfort that lotion gives me.
There you have it. A few of my winter survival kit things.
It should be noted that while I don’t list any books- books are a MAJOR portion of my winter survival kit. But then they are a major part of my summer, fall, and spring as well 🙂
And now it’s time to LINK UP!
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
