A few days ago, I posted my winter to-do list filled with all of the fun things that I’m looking forward to this month. But you know one thing I’m not looking forward to? Winter skin. During December and January, my skin definitely tends to be drier and duller. Chatting about how to avoid winter skin woes in today’s post using four simple tips and the new Olay Whips moisturizer. My skin has literally been drinking this stuff up!
Last Friday was CRAZY y’all – we had an unexpected snow storm blow right through Baton Rouge! It was pretty cool waking up to a winter wonderland, and because Louisiana isn’t used to icy roads, most businesses were closed for the day. No complaints from this girl for getting to spend the day in our pajamas and slippers! (It was so nice having Jordan at home for the day too!) The snow might have already melted, but I’m still living my best fuzzy slipper life and dreaming of these cozy gift ideas from Nordstrom in today’s post.
Sometimes blog post ideas come from the most random places! The idea for today’s spiked hot chocolate bar post came about after one fated trip to World Market. I came home with 4 different hot chocolate types, snowflake marshmallows and – Kringle Kream. I didn’t know what it was at the time, it just literally sounded like liquid icing. And after documenting this trip on Instagram Stories, I got SO many responses and questions in regards to my hot chocolate supplies!
Not only did you have expert hot chocolate advice, you had recipes and tips for perfecting the perfect cocoa consistency and heat. And you proved that I’ve been drinking hot chocolate ALL wrong my entire life. Sharing my spiked hot chocolate bar cart and YOUR cocoa tips and tricks in today’s full post!
Our Louisiana winter can be a little unpredictable – last year it was 80 degrees on Christmas! But this year, we’ve had a pretty consistent cool front making it actually feel like December! However, it’s still nothing close to say… Philadelphia and New York, where we will be heading for actual Christmas this year! Luckily, Nordstrom has a selection of winter clothing options that work for Louisiana winter and our snowy Christmas plans! I’m already planning what to pack like my Ugg boots and cozy thermal socks. Keep reading to see my full winter to-do list!
