It is so cold outside, that I don't even feeling like eating the peppermint-stick ice cream in my fridge tonight. Whenever I was forced to venture outside today I bundled up with ear muffs, a down coat, leather gloves, and wool socks. Unfortunately, it doesn't look as though the weekend will be any warmer. But you can fight against the effects of winter with the tried and true remedies listed below, and of course be sure to bundle up!!
1.) Maribelle hot chocolate is the perfect wickedly rich winter drink to cuddle up with. Tip: Spike it with Amaretto and you'll be feeling the warm glow of the holidays in no time.
2.) Originally created for outdoor enthusiasts like ice fisherman, tiny hand warmers are ideal for keeping your hands and feet toasty while you go about your winter shopping or wait for a bus.
3.) Don't be fooled by it's drugstore-ish packaging, Yu-Be Cream, which is used by Japanese mountain climbers, is serious stuff. Hands down, it is the best remedy for combating winter dryness. Apply it to dry lips, cuticles, knuckles, and elbows for maximum comfort.
4.) Now these may not be the prettiest nightwear ever, and yes wearing these might make you feel like a child in a Norman Rockwell painting, but trust me, flannel footed pajamas are the way to go! Seriously, they even come with a trap-door flap! How authentic is that!!
