It's coming, Midwest.... the snow is coming :( Along with the freezing cold for the next six months, so not ready but there's no denying that it's coming. Saturday and Sunday here in West Michigan are calling for a high of 35 degrees and an 80% chance of snow each day. The only thing that makes it slightly okay is that it's finally time to bust out the cold weather gear! Cute hats and mittens, colorful scarves and comfy coats and boots do make me happy while the weather sucks. Here are a few of my current faves and a couple of babies on my wishlist:
+ I'm a big fan of Kiehls products and this Ultra Facial Cream is perfect for protecting your skin on those blustery, cold days. Ps. I have a post coming next month about how to cure the terrible dry skin that comes with winter.
+ I wear my Hunter boots all.winter.long. They're just so easy to slip on, especially for quickly taking the dog out or grabbing the mail. While they aren't the warmest, I'm thinking a pair of the fleece welly socks should help with that.
+ I desperately need a pair of nice gloves - these Halogen Touch Tech cashmere gloves look heavenly AND you can operate your phone with them on! They come in tons of different colors, too.
+ Something I never thought I would say again... I want a pair of Ugg boots. I'm loving the look of the new Kara boot: a slimmer profile and a bit of a wedge. So. Cute.
+ I picked up this Old Navy brushed flannel scarf this week and LOVE it! The online picture just doesn't do the bright colors justice. It's huge and warm and for only $20, I want to get all of the colors.
