I need a lighter post after yesterday’s heavy one, no?
A few months ago, I decided I needed new snow boots to replace the ones I’d had since college. (Hey, they held up really well!) I also decided then and there that this winter was going to be a doozy and I should replace my winter coat, too.
Like most winters in NYC, this one kind of sucks, but here’s a few of the products making it slightly more tolerable.
1.Â Maybelline Master Prime Illuminator:Â I read about this on Racked a few weeks ago and HAD TO HAVE IT. The article said it would give my face a lovely glow, and who can’t use that in the harst NYC winter? Done and done.
2.Â Clinique Repairwear Sculpting Night Cream:Â I got this one in a gift with purchase set. As long as the birthdays keep coming, I’m going to keep looking for great moisturizers. Or a reliable place to get Botox. Either one!
3.Â New Balance Windblocker:Â When the ground is dry (big when!), I’ve been trying to run outside when I can, unless it’s under like 20. This jacket is my jam baby. Paired with the NBx Minimus Long SleeveÂ from a few years ago, it’s the perfect combo to stay warm. It looks and feels like this Lulu topÂ for a fraction of the price.
4. Clarisonic Mia:Â I resisted this for YEARS, but I got one for Christmas, and I get it. My skin is as soft as a baby’s butt, and was more glowy even before I got the snazzy illuminator.
5. Sorel Jane of Arctic:Â These are heavy SOBs, but they are WARM and keep my feet dry.
6.Â North Face Arctic Down Parka:Â Notice a theme with these last two? Yeah…I’m all about staying warm. I’d had the big sleeping bag down coat but wanted something a little classier. The sleeping bag coat was warm, my ski coat is North Face, don’t mess with a good thing.
What’s keeping you sane this winter?
