Old Man Winter and Mother Nature seemed to have gotten together to give us one hell of a winter. We've finally had a couple "warm" days here in Chicago and I am ready to have more of the Springtime weather. But until we get there, I put together a little guide for some must-haves for surviving the rest of this dreary month.
1. John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo + Conditioner - my whole body has been dry as a bone all winter and I highly recommend trying adding this to your shower. It's so refreshing and actually makes my scalp tingle. I love that it moisturizes so well without making my scalp oily. And it's an inexpensive brand that I picked up at Target.
2. Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter - I recommended this back in my Gift Guide for the Jetsetter and for Stockings but it definitely goes onto my survival guide. My post winter skin needs extra moisture and this is a lifesaver. The body butter is part of my nightly routine that I never skip.
3. Maybelline Baby Lips - I grabbed one of these at Target when I was heading to 80's Prom (more on that soon!) because I wanted a bright pink that wasn't going to be too thick on my lips. Serendipity. It was like a super slick chapstick with a great pop of color. I am addicted to it now and will be picking up more colors.
4. Hunter Rain Boots - my Hunters have been with me since 2007 and they're still one of the best purchases I've made. Beating out all other boots I've ever owned, they always keep my feet dry and just what I need for these melting snow piles. Add in the welly socks and they're perfect for year round wear.
And so... is it Spring yet?
