Five Winter Survival Faves (#AMONTHOFFAVES)

The Desert

It’s a winter themed post so why the blue sky? Because I live in California and this IS winter for us. Sure, it might be a chilly 58 degrees but this is typically what the weather is like during the Rose Parade and probably the reason for all of our population woes! I lied about the temp, my weather app says 83 right now!

These guys, Tanya @ Girlxoxo and Andi @ Estella’s Revenge posted about their winter essentials so I figured I would too even though mine are not critical for survival in the balmy California air.

Satsuma Body Butter by The Body Shop. I love this stuff! I love the smell of it (smells like a freshly peeled orange) but I also love what it does for my skin. I use the body butter as a hand cream. It’s a crisp, fresh scent but I think it would be too strong if I covered my body in it.

Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rum Raisin. This color has been around for AGES! It’s the color I wear during the cooler months because of my pale skin! With paler skin, and the dark hair, I look a little sickly if I don’t have a pop of color. Too much color I look like a vampire but this color is just enough to make me look alive.

Charity Pot cream by Lush. They reformulated this product but you can still get the original if you ask for it. Anyway, this product (as a moisturizer) did not work for me. It actually dried my skin out which is why I then started to use it as a face cream and by doing that, I somehow blotted out my oily skin and now my skin is normal! No kidding! I smooth it on at night and somehow it balances my skin out and I no longer have oily skin complaints. Weird, huh? I love it. Plus, it smells like Tootsie Rolls which is a nice scent to fall asleep to.  A bonus, 100% of the price (minus taxes) goes to grassroots organizations which are listed on the lid so you get to choose which one to support.

Candles. Oddly enough, during the winter I like to smell beachy scents like Yankee’s Beach Holiday.

Jammies!! I live in the them. Victoria’s Secret Dreamer Flannel PJs are super wearable and get better with wear! I own three pair and they are well-worn and loved but it’s time for some new ones!

What are your faves for winter?
