Storm Emma/Beast from the East is in full force…it’s freezing…it’s snowing….it’s a blizzard…it’s chaos…I love it. If you’re planning on having a snow day and hunkering down then this is the post for you, here are some snow-day-essentials to have a wrapped up wintery day!
I absolutely love curling up with a good book (I feel as though that is pretty obvious by now) and a snow day is the perfect excuse to crack open a new one! Here are some recs…
Eve Babitz – Eve’s Hollywood
Andrew Sean Green – The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells
Scott Galloway – The four
Gary Vaynerchuk – Crushing It
Dr Carol Dweck – Mindset
Sadly, not all of us have ‘a Russian’ to give us foot massages and make us hot cocoa when we’re snowed in.
Sex & the City (Season 6 if you want some sno-spiration)
Gilmore Girls (the OG snow show….”I smell snow”)
Friends (The one with Phoebe’s wedding)
Serendipity (the best snow scenes…brb gonna go watch this now)
Get yourself some icy tips
Smith’s Cult – Regret the Moon
Sally Hansen colour therapy – Well, well, well
Moisture, moisture, moisture
Obviously, it’s freezing and your skin is going to get chapped! Prevention is k e y. Oh and yes, you still need SPF, fun fact; snow (because it’s white) reflects the sun back onto your skin so even on a snow day you can get sun damage (skin ageing). Luckily this lip balm has built in SPF 30….you’re welcome.
Supergoop – Acai Lip balm
Ortiga – Hand Cream
This is just a must-have. You lose the majority of body heat through your feet and your head so a soft and warm fluffy pair of slippers are perfect for days like this. Mine are from UGG (similar linked below) and they are the absolute dream, highly recommend but if they’re a bit above budget, I’ve linked some other options below
UGG – Scuffette Slipper
Zara – Floral faux fur slides
NEXT – Grey faux fur buckle sliders
Superdry – Premium mule slippers
First things first, what time of day is it? Before 5pm? Grab yourself a hot tea (green with a bit of lemon for me) or a hot cup of coffee. (P.S: These gloves are so chic and warm AND they were only £12…seriously. Sadly I can’t find the exact ones but here are some similar)
After 5pm? You can’t go wrong with a moscow mule (recipe linked below) or a glass of warming red wine (Malbec thank you). Finish off this snow day right.
Stay warm babes!
