How's your life been treating you lately?
I hope you are all OK and have started this week on a good note.
Me? I'm feeling kinda bad about not updating this blog for a week. Therefore, I would like to extend my apologies to all the readers. Yes, all two of you ;).
Today I'm going to discuss different ways in which you can protect yourselves from the cold in the winter time. I know what you are going to say: there is still loads of time before the winter starts, but trust me – it's going to get freezing before you can say Quidditch and didn't your mum always tell you to wrap up well way before December anyway?
1. TRAPPER HAT
This is my favourite type of winter hats. Wear it to show others that it might be cold outside but you are the one who is the coolest.
If you are not a woolly hat kind of person, at least consider wearing earmuffs or a headband.
3. HEADBAND/ EAR WARMER
4. INFINITY SCARF
This is not a regular scarf. Why? Because it never ends. Wrap it around your neck as many times a you can and you are bound to look more stylish than if you wore a regular boring scarf with two ends.
5. GLOVES (MITTENS, FINGERLESS, GLITTENS)
If you like trapper hats, you will love mittens. These will keep your fingers warm and snugly.
If you insist on tapping away on your phone while outside, you might want to invest in a pair of fingerless gloves.
However, you will have the best of both worlds if you wear glittens. You can text when you want, and if your fingers get cold, just put on the retractable part.
When it comes to clothes, layering is putting on almost everything you own in order to keep yourself warm. You start with a simple spaghetti strap top and finish off with a big sweater.
7. CHUNKY OVERSIZED JUMPER
Those can be very fashionable too. Just make sure your look is more BOHO than HOBO-inspired ;).
8. LEG WARMERS
Although I associate leg warmers with fitness exercises and fashion victims who wear them in the summer, I think they may come in handy in the winter time. Plus they look cute and girly.
9. SKI SOCKS
Even if you don't really know how to ski, you can still wear them.
10. LINED/ THERMO-PADDED BOOTS
Make sure that your winter boots are not only stylish and fashion-forward, but they can also keep your toes warm.
11. HOME-MADE COCOA WITH MARSHMALLOWS
If you have seen the Holiday (please, don't judge) starring Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz, you might remember the drink that the Cameron Diaz character is offered when she visits her lover and meets his daughters for the first time – home-made cocoa with marshmallows. It was that or hot chocolate. I can't remember now. But there were definitely marshmallows there and the right portion seems to be five marshmallows per serving!
12. OVERPRICED AND OVERRATED COFFEE
Just kidding ;).
Because you can drink coffee all year round!
Hope you enjoyed.
Stay warm! ;)))
