Winter Cold Survival Guide

January 6, 2014


So unless you are living under a rock {or in California} then you know that like everywhere is going through a major cold front. Here in Minneapolis the high for today is NEGATIVE FIFTEEN. Yikes. Cold temps like that call for some serious preparation {and I don’t just mean stocking up on Bailey’s and wine}. I’ve compiled a list of some must-haves to get you through the arctic temps.

1. Okay, can we just talk about how cozy this sweater looks?! {Similar here, and OMG what deal here!} Like some serious snuggled-up-on-the-couch-with-a-book-and-wine cozy. Sold.

2. Guys. The Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm is the ultimate in lip balms. It hydrates, plumps, soothes, nourishes, and contains vitamins A & E. Plus it smells just like fresh roses. What more could you ask for?!

3. I totally try to be a hat girl, but the effortless style is so much easier said than done! Beanies are my favorite way to pull of the low key/cool girl look {and I’m in LOVE with this one, and totally picking up this one} while really just hiding the fact that you haven’t washed your hair. Don’t tell me you haven’t done the same thing.

4. I got a checked scarf for Christmas and I literally cannot stop wearing it! It’s so warm, and is the perfect balance of classy and cozy. Bonus, it’s on sale now!

5. Bath and Body Works has the best winter scents, and the Hot Buttered Rum candle is so yummy. It fills your whole house, and with a scent description of “a comforting blend of spiced rum and warm caramel, with a touch of vanilla bourbon,” you know that it is going to be the perfect addition to a cold day!

6. There are some days {like days where the high is -15 degrees} where you need an extra layer while bundled up indoors. This North Face vest makes the perfect addition on top of a chunky sweater to keep you toasty warm despite the frigid temps.

7. Cold weather equals dry, cracked hands. And let’s be honest, no one wants to snuggle under a blanket with someone whose skin feels like an alligator. Grossssssss. This trio of hand creams from Trader Joe’s makes it super easy to keep your skin hydrated and smooth!

What are your winter cold necessities?! How are you staying warm during the freezing weather? Let me know!
