Winter Essentials

I'm a Southern girl, so I'm obviously not great with cold weather.
I have rounded up just a few of my essentials to help me make it through these cold days & nights that are coming up.

This long-sleeved tee is a staple in my wardrobe, I wear it lounging around the house, I wear it to class, I wear it everywhere. & I bought mine like, two sizes up so it covers my butt. It's great.
Plus, there is just something about the front pocket that makes me laugh, it says Chuck's Tee-Shirt Company: Established Last Week. It just makes me giggle.

Cozy knit blankets are a must have for any Netflix/Hulu binge session. C & I snapped up several hand-made crocheted blankets at a local estate sale a few weeks ago & they have been a God-send!

J.Crew camp socks are my go to, especially for when I'm just hanging out around the house all day. They are so cozy and comfortable, right now they're only $7 so you should snap them up while you can!

My lips & skin get so so dry during the winter, so of course there are EOS pods all over my house, in my purse, in my truck, literally everywhere. I'm never more than arms length away from one. They're so moisturizing and they smell so good.

Bath & Body Works is my go-to place for candles & if you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you should know that. When I forced asked C sweetly, to take me Black Friday shopping, we stood patiently in line for 45 minutes at B & BW to take advantage of their buy three, get three free sale where I stocked up on six of their big three wick candles! 
Marshmallow Fireside is one of my favorite scents to burn year-round, it's got the sweetness of marshmallow & the toasty smell of a campfire-the perfect combination!

When I tell you that my skin gets dry during the winter, I'm not joking.
The skin around my nails was cracking & my fingers were in serious pain, which is no joke for a blogger!
Cue the Sally Hansen "Healthy Cuticles Now!" cream. . .
This stuff is a miracle worker *and it smells so delish!*
I put it on before I went to sleep one night & by the next morning, my dry cracking fingers were smooth & painless. I recommend it to anyone!

I hope these suggestions gave you some ideas to make these cold winter months a little bit more bearable!

Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for a special Cyber Monday edition of The Southern Stylista-I'll have some big deals for y'all!

Until next time. . .
