Another Month of Faves from Andi, Tanya, and T. and I skipped yesterday’s post about memorable books because I couldn’t remember any of them! Ha! Actually, I didn’t have time. Maybe I’ll throw it in at the end of today’s post.
Speaking of… today we are promoting our 5 favorite winter survival items. Being a Northern person, I know a bit about surviving winter. Here are some of my faves.
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion I suffer from eczema. I haven’t found anything that can conquer it. It’s much worse in the winter. One thing that helps a lot is this lotion. I’ve been using it for decades. Without it I think the itching would have driven me crazy ages ago.
The Body Shop’s Hemp Hand Protector This is one of the best hand creams I’ve ever tried. It goes on thick, but doesn’t leave a greasy feel. The scent is nice too. Not too strong. I rub it in my hands right before bed. (Dry skin is my winter theme!)
Burt’s Bees lip balm I know there are so many types of Burt’s Bees lip balm now: scented, tinted. But I like the plain ole original the best.
Insulated mugs Let’s get away from all things epidermis for a bit. When I was working, I’d like to start the day with chai tea during the morning commute. I had to have it in an insulated mug or it might not be very warm after I scrape the car windows. Contigo makes some fancy ones.
T-max Heat socks These are not the sexiest or cutest socks in the world but they are sooooo warm. T-max makes all kinds of thermal things: underwear, hats, handwarmers- for men, women, and children. The socks are my favorite. I pull them on first thing on a cold morning.
That’s my list! I hope you found it helpful.
