My "Fall into Winter" Must- Haves

15 October 2013

I live in Canada, which even if you know nothing about Canada, the one thing you do know is that we have winter for about 8 months of the year. Typically we start getting very cold weather around this time of year, and it isn't uncommon for us to have snow on Halloween.

So in preparation for the upcoming winter weather that I'm anticipating in the next few weeks, I've comprised a list of some of my "Fall into Winter" must-haves.

Cold weather means chapped lips, and there's nothing that I hate more than cracked, chapped lips so I always carry one of these suckers with me wherever I go. My personal fave is the Sweet Mint. Yum!

A super cute (and warm) hat

Canadian winters are nothing to joke about, so I need to keep my ears covered. I also have an unruly amount of hair, and if the wind blows just a little this mane is going to end up a whole lot of hot mess. Having a hat on keeps it from going everywhere, plus I look adorable in it.

A long coat
Sticking to the outerwear theme, something I've wanted to invest in for quite some time has been a jacket that goes past my bum (and it's a huge bum, so that takes quite a bit of material in aaaalll the wrong places). But I finally found a coat that I think works great with my curves, is long enough to cover my butt, and is different enough that I don't look like every other girl in a black peacoat. ModCloth has just introduced two new private labels, and this Pier Before Your Eyes Coat is part of Myrtlewood's collection. Aaaand because the size goes all the way up to a 4X, just about any girl can get their hands on this gorgie piece of clothing. Love it.

(Soy) Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha
These things are dangerous for me. They are so tasty. White chocolate? Yum. Peppermint? Double yum. The best freaking espresso ever? Yum, yum, yum! This girl is lactose intolerant so she get's it soy, or lactose free. My suggestion is that if you haven't tried it, you're missing out. Big time.

A good book
Right now I'm reading, Let's Pretend This Never Happened... by Jenny Lawson. Sometimes when it's freezing cold out and there's like, 20 cm of snow on the ground, you just gotta pick up a book and have at 'er.

A soft, snuggly cat to cozy up to
I know, she's totally adorable.
You don't actually think I'd leave Leia out of this post, did you? In my experience, the best thing to do on a cold winter's day is to snuggle up to a warm, fuzzy pet. Whether it's a tyrant kitty like Leia, or another fuzzy pet.

Here's to a happy winter!

  1. Oh man I loooove Modcloth. Sometimes I want to move to the States just so I don't have to pay through the teeth for shipping. Ooh and handy to know you're lactose intolerant. I'm trying to keep my eye out for possible things that I can send you :)
