The after christmas sales have all been picked over, coats are barely left and whats new? Flip flops, shorts and white jeans! What?! Yes, the fashion calendar is twisted and just trying to keep you ahead. If you live in a hot state like Texas then you don’t mind seeing a sleeveless sun dress or linen blazer a little early. Imagine living in a city with icy conditions with the hilariously ironic “Resort” season on your stores shelves. Well, I’m here to help crack the code and help you find those winter must haves you may need in your life. Whether its skin care or cold weather accessories, I GOT YOU!
I will be the first to tell you, when GlamGlow came out I was NOT on board. I was already faithful to a similar product and was not about to shell out the big bucks ($70) for a mask that seemed so…..trendy. After almost a year now the hype is as rapid as ever and I recent decided to grab a travel sized jar ($19) which is good for about 3-4 uses. My skin has already started to get a fleming looking dry look so it was the perfect time to try the “YouthMud”. This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing while exfoliating and getting rid of skin debris without striping the skin of essential oils. While I haven’t got to try out the “ThirsyMud” mask ive heard great things. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin and is also available in ($19) travel size!
Because texting, duh. and don’t start with me on the texting gloves because I hate those. Every pair I have owned has failed. Plus fingerless is so much more bad ass. Love this red pair or her (Or him with small hands) and black for him!
My tried in true. These super-creamy balms from L’Occitane penetrate the skin quickly to protect, moisturize, and replenish dehydrated hands. Each formula is enriched with 20 percent shea butter and other naturally nourishing ingredients like honey, almond, grape seed, and coconut oil for soft, beautiful skin. I carry about 4 of these around at all times and at $12 a pop their hard not to turn into your next obsession! I use the Lavender at night before bed and the Almond Milk during the day! Keep those knuckles from bleeding!
I told you in the beginning of fall that capes and ponchos were making a HUGE comeback this year and that they have! The poncho cape is perfect for keeping warm in the office, at the grocery store, at the movies or just for chic simplicity. Guys, dress it up with a white button down and jeans, ladies wear it over jeans and a fun sweater. Surprisinly I often get compliments on my capes from non fashion oriented guys….if you know what I mean.
It’s so cliché to say but out there somewhere is a young guy or girl that doesn’t know what they need in a moisturizer or what it even does or when to put it on! I WAS THAT BOY! Moisturizer should already be a huge part of your daily skin routine ESPECIALLY this time of year. Cold weather makes skin miserably dry. Dry skin turns to wrinkles and even the most skin care ignorant know they don’t want wrinkles. I love and live by the religion that is Kate Sommerville, however I understand her products are very expensive. One of my favorite affordable moisturizer is Dew Over by Olay Fresh Effects. I tried out a handful of their products this last summer during a project with Olay and I loved it all! Feel free to pick up any of the products from either of these brands with confidence.
The gate way trend that paved the way for the poncho revival. The blanket scarf has been shutting down sidewalks all over the world and is just so easily attainable. These are perfect for chilly weather because you can over your face and keep your neck and décolletage warm while staying effortless chic. This look is perfect for guys and girls!
Now hear me out. This is not your Climax. If there was ever a product I have 100% success rate of converting friends to, it is this one! I live by Jack Black lip balm all year round but especially in the winter. It’s an SPF formula that soothes and relieves dry, chapped, irritated lips. It’s enriched with superior skin conditioners and antioxidants and, unlike waxy sticks, it penetrates quickly to provide instant relief. For only $7 you can’t afford not to try it.
You have your combat boots for the snowy slush, your Uggs for lounging and errand running but what about those Icy days when you literately have to face reality and turn the Netflix off to do something productive. (This one is for most of my norther followers. If it snows in Texas the city is shutting down).
Yes, were going there today! Long johns haven’t been around forever because they don’t work. Forget what you thought Long Johns were and get into some modern times. Most retailers sell these warm necessities in their lingerie or mens underwear dept. I have a whole collection and love them so hard. They are especially great to wear to bed then in the morning roll out of your chilled slumber and throw on your street clothes over them! Comfort 24/7. You win.
Now I don’t know if Butter socks are the official name of these cozy babies but that is what I call them so ….BUTTER SOCKS! You know that baby material they make like everything for babies out of. Well incase you didn’t know they make adult versions that aren’t just for cozying by the fire in. My favorite thing to do at night is lotion up my feat, stick them in these babies then fall asleep. It leaves my feet so warm and refreshed. They are perfect for bundling with your boots or find a low pair for tennis shoes, flats and booties! Happy feet, Happy me!
