Favorite Winter Essentials 2014

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. Mine was filled with lots of family and food. I got some pretty awesome presents that I would love to share with you all another time. This post is some winter essentials that I love during this time of year. New York winters are cold and involve a lot of wind, and the temperatures drop to 20 degrees in the dead of Winter.

1. Lip Balm

My favorite lip balm is from the brand EOS (evolution of smooth). I call them eos eggs because they are circular and come in a lot of colors. They are perfect to keep in your jacket, book bag, hand bag, and pockets. They are about 5 dollars and are long lasting. Lip balm keeps your lips from getting chapped and dried out and is a necessity in the Winter.

2. Scarves

I have really been into wear scarves because they are warm, stylish, and work` as an accessory to any outfit. I have recently been wearing infinity scarves also known as circle scarves. This is one of my winter essentials because since it gets really cold in New York I need something to keep my neck and face warm when I am walking the streets and taking the train.

3. Dark Lipsticks

In winter I think of gray, black, white, dark red and purple. Those are colors I like to wear in the Winter and match my makeup too. In the Winter I would wear dark red lipstick with no eyeshadow and a bit of mascara. Remember, when you are going for dark lips, do not make drastic eyes, it's better to have one feature stand out than putting a ton of makeup on.

4. Boots

Boots are my favorite shoe during the Winter. In the Summer, it's way to hot to wear boots so Winter is the perfect time to get out your cutest pair of boots. Brands of boots I recommend are Steve Madden, Ugg, Forever 21 (cute boots, really good prices!), H&M, and Doc Marten. Every year I talk about boots but they are my favorite. I usually wear my Ugg boots when I am in more comfortable clothes like sweat pants or leggings. I would wear boots with a heel if I\ I am wearing jeans or a skirt. Knee high and thigh socks look super cool with Doc Martens or black Steve Madden boots.

5. Movies, Books, and Music

Winter is the time of laying in your bed in comfortable clothing watching movies. Lately I have been obsessed with American Horror Story, and  Divergent. Over my holiday break I plan on finishing the third book in the Divergent series (Allegiant), and Papertowns. Winter is also a time to start something new, for example, I am going to try to be healthier and work on getting a Summer body. But, speaking of comfortable winter nights I am currently watching a Harry Potter marathon and sipping a Green Smoothie.

It's so great to be back blogging. I hope you guys had a great Christmas. Comment what your favorite thing about Winter. See you soon!

  2. i definitely agree with all these essentials, especially boots and dark lip colours!! great post :) xx

  3. I am so happy I found this blog! I can't stop reading it! I love the dark lipstick but I don't know if bold lipstick necessarily looks great on me but it would be helpful if you could show how to style it for an everyday look. :)

  4. Please do a "People who made my 2014 special" post! I love these because you get to see who has changed you into the person you are today. I love looking at who is still by side and who has gone their separate ways. To make it easy I also do month by month a handful of people and wrote about them.
