Gosh, Winter is not coming, it is already here!
When I first began composing this post yesterday, it was just slightly cooler than the previous week. Then I woke up this morning, just to find out it had been snowing all night long and now I am apparently living in Winterfell.
Yes, I know it sounds like I am overstating the situation again (I tend to sound like that when I speak about the weather) but come on, we don´t have any snow at homeland AT ALL, so this sudden white landscape always makes me freak out
The thing is after one year living here, I am somehow starting to anticipate to drastic temperature changes. It is like suddenly developing some kind of Jedi sense, people.
I swear I have no idea how it happened, but a couple of weeks ago I woke up looking to the sky and thinking:
“Girl, you better jump from the bed and go shopping for Winter clothes right now!”
There was not even a reasonable cause for that, I simply KNEW weather would go awful soon. And it did. It went colder than a witch´s tit.
But ey, this time I was ready!
First thing on the list were tights, not only because they are pretty (and they ARE), but also because you never have got stocking enough.
This pretty are also far thiker than my regular choice, however I am sure they will be super helpful.
For me, ears are a sensitive area. Two Winters ago I got an ear severe infection as a consequence of cold and I swear it was the most painful thing ever.
So fluffy black earmuffs were on the top of the list.
Next stop on the shopping town trip was the beauty department.
It´s not like I need an excuse to buy cosmetics, is it? Nonetheless, this time I really needed some extra protection against wind and cod. My skin is really sensitive and as I mentioned, I am not used to extreme weather conditions and it tends to get truly dry.
Also, my lips can crack easily (hooray!).
I bought Chapstick Classic as a friend´s recommendation, and I am happy she gave me such advice. The texture is very creamy and lasting is quite good. Also, I love the smell and sweet cherry colour it leaves on the lips.
As for the skin, I went right away to Sephora (did I mention I am kind of becoming addicted?) in the search of some vanilla scented moisturising body lotion.
Don´t even bother to ask why I like to smell like a muffin.
I simply DO. A good 80% of my moisturising choices are vanilla scented. I might have a problem there. Anyway, I was about to try my favourite lotion, when I noticed this new peonies perfumed cream. GOD. You can´t imagine how good it smells.
I´ve got a new friend.
And just to finish, I bought two wool jumpers (I already featured one of them on the blog) and a beautiful pasmina scarf (it is the pretty red roses fabric I am using as a background in this post). I would love to learn hot to wrap myself properly on the cold season, as I´ve got little experience on that field.
Any recommendation about it?
So tell me darlings, how are you dealing with cold weather these days?
