Small Winter Essentials
winter is fast approaching! it's starting to flurry some nights and get that bitter cold nip in the air. So now naturally you need to adjust your lives accordingly. here are some of my small winter essentials I go to right as the weather starts getting cold.
My skin is in desperate need of moisture in the colder weather. as soon as i step out of the shower i need cream on my face! I still use my water cream by tatcha during the day but in the evening i usually go for a more thicker moisturizer. I've been using the aveeno daily moisturizer for years now and I adore it! this one has spf in it so it kinda smells like sun screen and therefore reminds me of the warmer weather.
of course we need to keep our bodies warm. i have 3 different ways of doing that during the winter season. the first is the perfect oversized sweater! my new one by champion from urban outfitters is my new love. she's so pink and has the perfect 90's oversized fit. next is my saje bead body warmer. you spritz this with water and warm it up in the microwave until it's nice and toasty. i love simply having this with me under my sheets at night or as i cuddle up on the couch. I have a few of these bead things in different shapes. they are also amazing for sore mussels and headaches and stomachaches. the last is a cozy blanket! i have this massive brown one under all my sheets (becAUSE MY SHEETS ARE VERY COLD ON MY SKIN). I SLEEP LIKE A BABY.
I KNOW I'VE RAVED ABOUT MY AROMA DIFFUSERS LATELY BUT I STILL HAVE A LOVE FOR CANDLES. THIS ONE FROM VULOSPA IS SO CREAMY AND FILLS THE ROOM WITH A LIGHT YET STRONG VANILLA SMELL. BOURBON VANILLA IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SCENTS FROM THIS BRAND. I ENJOY CANDLES MORE SO IN THE WINTER BECAUSE IT JUST FEELS MORE HEAVY AND WARMS THE ROOM WITH THEIR CANDLE LIGHT. THE OTHER BEAUTY WITH THESE CANDLES IS THE PACKAGING IS SUPER CUTE AND YOU CAN REUSE THEM AS A PLANTER OR A HOLDER FOR OTHER THINGS LIKE MAKEUP BRUSHES OR PENS!
