A Brave Winter
Yes, it's March and I'm talking about winter. For many of us on the East coast in America, it's still very much feels like winter. It snowed just this weekend!Now, I occasionally enjoy a bit of snow or hell, even a lot of snow because I'll just slip into my Hunter boots and stomp around without a care in the world. But the freezing cold temperatures? Nope. I'm out.Except I can't get out. I'm sure other people farther north have had it worse but I've never been this cold all the time before. The almost daily dive into -1 degrees has made winter very hard and long for me.So, here are three things that have helped my survive this excruciating winter.
Obvious one, of course, but I've been layering like mad this season. I don't leave the apartment without at least two layers of clothing covering my body above my torso and below. Then, a jacket to top it all off. I even do the same layering inside the apartment because the heat cannot match the freezing temperatures.I actually enjoy testing out which different combinations of clothes though. It's interesting finding out what layers of clothes are both fashionable and warm.Layering sweaters with a plaid shirt underneath is my favorite stylish layering technique.
2. BRING SOME COLOR TO WINTER WITH YOUR NAILS
I love having nail polish on everyday but especially during the winter. There's something so satisfying about seeing everything covered in white snow and then looking down and seeing my colorful nails.Throughout the winter, I've definitely been leaning more towards the bright pastel colors and berry reds. My nails remind me spring is coming! In here, I had Julep's gorgeous Blakely (or Essie's For the Twill of It) on for a cool holographic effect to distract me from the bitter cold.
3. PIZZA AND TV WILL MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER
Pizza and television always makes things better. Even more so when I have no choice but to enjoy it cocooned up in my bed.On cold nights, my favorite TV shows to turn to enjoy people with are Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Blackish.
HOW DID YOU GET THROUGH WINTER?
Seriously though, spring needs to get here already.
