Tue. | Dec. 20 – 5 Must Haves for Winter Survival – shout out your favorite brand or stores or favorite items
Living in Mississippi, winter is not nearly as bad as it is in other states (I’m looking at all the snowy states!) However, when it does get cold here, it’s cold. And we’re not always prepared for it. Side note: I was wearing FLIP-FLOPS at Christmas last year!
Currently, Mississippi is suffering from a cold snap. I had to pull out my winter overcoat, my head wrap, and my gloves last night when I went to see Canton City of Lights. Today, while Christmas shopping with my mom, I said BRRR several times!
So, when I talk about winter survival, take it with a grain of salt (I’ll take my grain of salt with a large margarita, please 😉
T’s Winter Survival
1. LOTION. Starting around mid October, my hands start getting dry. It’s like they can feel the changes in the air and begins to get dry and cracky (is cracky a word?) I love Josie Maran’s lotion (Vanilla Apricot is my fav smell!) Other faves: Philosophy (lemon custard is my current fave!) and Bath and Body Works ( the coconut-y smells!)
2. Cuticle oil. I urge you to strongly invest in some oil. I use Essie Apricot oil and sometimes Burt’s Bees cuticle cream. I prefer oil, because the cuticle cream container can be a pain to open!
3. Warm relaxing pants. I sometimes wear yoga pants and other times wear fleecy pi’s. These are the pants I wear when it’s a messy hair, don’t care type of day (I usually can be found on these type of days, on the couch with my kitty cats nearby.)
4. Warm slippers. I used to never wear houseshoes. Then my mom got me a fuzzy pair of hot pink Jessica Simpson ones a couple of years ago- I LOVED them. My feet were warm and comfortable. Santa brings me a new pair every year 🙂
5. A great coat! I have a couple of fleece coats, one white overcoat, and some light gym like jackets.
6. A good book. While not just appropriate for winter survival- it’s always a good idea to have a good book nearby.
