My Winter Essentials.

Monday, 19 January 2015

Hey guys, Today I decided to share with you some of my Winter Essentials. So, this is everything I need to have during the winter. And since It’s been getting REALLY cold here lately, and the snow has finally fallen, I can’t live without these things.

First up : Obviously, since it’s been cold, All I have really worn lately are sweaters and cardigans, literally. I love this oversized cardigan because It’s really warm and comfortable, and I love the pattern. I would not be able to live without it, or any other sweater I own lately. A good, warm sweater or cardigan is very important.
When I go outside, I get cold so quickly. I have to be bundled up as much as I can. You would think my body would have adapted to colder weather where I live, but for some reason, I still get the shivers like mad. I’ve been wearing plenty of cozy scarves to keep me warm. This one, especially, I’ve been loving so much. IT’s SOOO Warm, and so big. And it has a really nice colour. 
Continuing on with keeping warm, I would not even attempt to go outside without gloves and a warm hat. My hands always go numb after a minute. So, yeah, gloves are essential. I love the pattern in these ones. Also, these kind of fingerless gloves are my favourite. I own a bunch because regular gloves do not seem to keep my fingers warm at all. My hands still go numb. So, I like these kind to keep my hands warm and cozy. ;)
My Ears also get really cold, so I need a good hat or headband to keep them warm. This white hat has been my favourite for SO long. It fits my head really comfortably and it looks so cute. It also goes with everything because it’s white. This was the best thing I ever bought when it comes to my hats. It's defiantly a one that I use every winter.
Literally, With all the snow lately, you really need a good pair of snow boots. Even just for walking in. I bought these a few years ago and I still wear them every winter. They’re big and warm and I just love stomping through the snow in them. Some mornings, when the roads are horrible, these have helped me so much. So, yeah, A good pair of boots are a good thing to have during the winter.
Seriously, how could you go through the winter season without a pair of cozy socks. Sometimes, it gets very cold and you want to keep your toes nice and warm. ;)
Moving on. My skin gets really dry in the winter. So, it helps to have a good moisturizer. I don’t have a particular one that I really love. This one is a new one I’ve only just begun using because I really needed one. But, yeah, moisturizers in the winter are a definite must for me.
I like to keep my lips moisturized as well and my favourite lip balm would have to be mabeline’s "baby lips". The Aquafina one works nicely as well, but I prefer the green “peppermint” baby lips one over anything. I buy so many of them. Out of all the baby lips collection, that one and the “Oh! Orange!” one is my favourite. I Literally can’t live without them.
I know this post is getting pretty long but I’m almost done, I promise. Hot Chocolate is one of my favourite things to drink in the winter. Especially after a cold day, I love a good hot chocolate to warm me up. Plus, it taste really good. I would consider this a winter essential. :)
And last but not least is my happy jar. I’m not really sure why I call it that, I defiantly need a more unique name because it deserves it. But, yeah, I like to have a huge jar of sweets in my room to eat throughout the winter. Plus, nobody else complains as they are always eating them too. I put all of my favourite chocolates in there so that’s why I call it my “happy” jar. I know, i’m so clever. 

So, there you have it. These are my main winter essentials that I like during the winter. What is one thing that you absolutely have to have during the winter? Let me know in the comments below. :)

  20. I totally understand you. I never was good with the cold and I haven't been going outside without a scarf for a while one. The only exception was that one really warm and sunny day (featured on my last post) that happened about a week ago:)

    Love your happy jar...
    I came up with my own recipe for powder chocolate, I must really remember to write about it and post in on my blog.

    I really like the first outfit...so feminine...that long cardi is so cute and it kind of looks like a blazer which is really cool.

  21. Noooo, not the baby lips! LOL! I hate those things, made my lips dry, ugh! On a more serious note, I too have been loving long, oversize cardigans these days. It's surprisingly stylish and yes, it keeps me warm too. I am still trying to get used to wearing gloves, I have two pair from Ralph Lauren that looks pretty but ugh, it feels so weird to bundle up my hands. There are moments where I miss the warm sunny Malaysia and then I remembered how hot, humid and sticky I was back there....sigh, can't have it all. LOL!

      And, woah, how could you not wear gloves. I wear gloves even if i'm only outside for a minute. Otherwise, I wouldn't ever be able to feel again. :P

  23. I hear you on getting bundled up before heading outdoors as I'm so sensitive to the cold. I'm never without a hat and scarf of some sort during the winter.

  26. So cute! My winter essentials are pretty much the same as yours. I have a similar pair of gloves but they are pink and a similar hat and I just love wearing it! Those boots look really good for winter and for snow and they looks nice as well. My winter drink is actually green tea. I haven't had a hot chocolate this winter, oops!

  43. Those socks! I have only ever experienced winter once on vacation. I had to slather Squalene oil all over my face and body to moisturize. Btw, I think the name "Happy Jar" suits it well. No need to change it. Sometimes the simplest name works. :)
