Dead of Winter Favorites 2018

If you get SAD in the winter, than you know how important it is to find joy in small pleasures. Here is what I am loving right now...

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick

My lips always feel dry in winter (along with my hands!), so I have to have something moisturizing on them, but I also like lipstick when I'm going out (to make me look a wee bit presentable). All of the lipsticks I've tried up to now, haven't moisturized enough. So ironic as it is (isn't Florida like the most humid place in the U.S.?), I picked up this Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick and adore it. It is super moisturizing and I love the colour I picked up! Of course, as my luck would have it, I don't think its available in Canada 😭

Old Navy Mesh Compression Leggings


I have bought many brands of compression leggings, and though these are the least expensive, they are also THE BEST! As a petite woman, I also love that the XS size actually fits me, and is the perfect length!! Oh, and I may or may not wear them to work sometimes...

The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden



I just finished this book and it was hilarious. I read so much heavy literature, that sometimes reading something funny is essential. This fit the bill perfectly. Its as clever as it is funny. I loved his first book too, The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.


Hot Lemon Water


I have already told you how addicted I am to drinking cold lemon water throughout the day right? Well its awesome hot in winter too! I discovered hot lemon water when pregnant with both girls. I couldn't stomach coffee or regular tea, so this was my warm beverage of choice and I really enjoyed it. Afterwards, I went back to drinking coffee and teas and kind of forgot about it. But lately I just find that aside from my morning coffee, drinking coffee or tea later in the day gives me a dry mouth and an unsettled tummy. Hot lemon water warms me up without those nasty side effects. The only trouble is, even in winter, I don't need much warming up. I am a human radiator, as always, and it seems to be getting worse as I get older 😱😅

If you can't escape the winter or you're feeling low, pamper yourself with little pleasures until the sun comes back out.
