Winter Insanity

In the dog days of winter, it’s a feat to maintain any semblance of the sanity that you take for granted the other three seasons. Although on December 21st, you may convince yourself that this year will be different, by the end of January, you’ll most likely be flipping off snowmen and telling anyone who will listen how long it takes you to thaw out your extremities. And don’t even get us started on how greasy your hair will become once you stop washing it because it’s “too damn cold.” Insanity brought on sub-zero temperatures is its own special brand of crazy. Here’s what you should expect: Keep reading »

winter blues

This time of year is tough. These cold months between the holidays and the first day of spring are like one giant, perpetual Monday staring you in the face. I’m generally a pretty happy-go-lucky person, but when the chilly months roll around, my personality changes. I get down in the dumps over just about everything.

This time last year, I was living on the Florida coast, where I experienced my first sunny winter in over a decade. I’d always known I tended to fall into a funk each winter, but experiencing a January without snow made me realize just how tough a time I had each year. That Florida winter, I had plenty of energy and optimism — just like I do in the warmer months. When I’m living up north, a typical January for me usually means sleeping late, feeling hopeless and getting close to nothing accomplished. When I saw how good life can be year-round when winter blues aren’t part of the picture, I knew it was time to change how I approach the cold, slushy season. Keep reading »

Dear Fleece Leggings,

I wasn’t planning to buy you when I walked into a cute little boutique in East Nashville. In fact, I wasn’t planning to buy anything for myself. I was Christmas shopping for a few friends and had sworn on my rapidly dwindling bank account that I wasn’t going to buy myself any gifts in the process. (I have this terrible habit of buying myself 2 things for every 1 thing I buy someone else. Oops.)

But then, as I browsed the racks, earnestly looking for gifts for friends and family members, my hand brushed up against your waistband. Scandalous, right? You were so soft that I must have audibly gasped, because the store clerk looked up from the counter and said, “Those are fleece-lined leggings. Just wait until you feel the inside!”

So I felt your inside (double scandalous!) and immediately started moaning and groaning like an Herbal Essences commercial.  Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Super-Warm Coats, Gloves, And Scarves To Get You Through This Winter

It’s been a pretty mild winter so far here in New York, with temperatures rising above 50 just last week … so it seems only karmic that just when we were thinking we could deal with winter at its best, we’re about to get it at its worst. Rumor has it (I go on Weather.com, sometimes) that temperatures are dropping, and a big chill is coming in a big way. If you haven’t invested in some crazy-ugly, crazy-warm winter outerwear and accessories, well, you might want to hit express on that shipping. I know it’s $15. Just do it. The good news: because we’re technically moving into the next season (spring!), tons of these items are on steep sale. The bad news: you’ll have to get your hands on them quick, before a) they sell out and b) the second ice age arrives. Okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but still. I just hope that when it comes, you’ll have had the foresight to wear these …

Makeup Bag: Keep Your Icy Cool This Winter

It’s always around this time of year that we notice our skin has taken a turn for the lackluster. We don’t know where to point fingers: the colder temperatures, the food, the drinks, the activities, or (most likely) some combination thereof? As it happens, it’s also around this time of year that our shimmery bronzers tend to seem a bit, well, out of place… so we’re taking a cue from the weather this season and abandoning the golden glitz in favor of icy touches and pearly glimmers. We’ve got the details on how to get that glow back: gentle exfoliation, heavy-duty moisture, and a few key products will help you look every bit the ice queen this winter.  Keep reading »
