When it comes to surviving the chilly months in the winter, a girl has got to do what a girl has got to do. By surrounding myself with some of my favorite essentials this month, I’ve beat the January blues and actually enjoyed a great kick off to 2012!
Hug Mug There’s no better month for a steamy cup of hot chocolate. Nothing gets the job done better than the Hug Mug. Because of its shape you can perfectly hug the mug with both hands creating the coziest hot chocolate drinking experience ever.
Goal Tracker I love to set goals. Especially when I have something as cute as this little diddy to write them on. I love that there is a place to check off a completed goal on each day of the month. Completed check marks are so satisfying.
Cozy Blanket Due to a drafty apartment, I’m wrapped up in a blanket 90% of the time at home during these long winter months.
Paper Source Planner I keep a calendar on my phone and a weekly datebook where I map out my days hour by hour. I’m going on my third year with a Paper Source Calendar and I’m a huge fan. Great design, just the right size, and spiral bound.
Eternity Scarf Although I grew up in a state that enjoyed big winters every year, nothing compares to the cold on the east coast. It goes through your bones and straight to your soul making you grumpy from January – March. (drastic? maybe) In addition to my sleeping bag coat, I can’t live without my trusty eternity scarf to wrap snugly around my neck keeping all the cold out.
Citrus Juicer It’s easy to gravitate to hearty comfort foods this time of year but I always like to implement a lot of citrus into our meals during the winter. It’s in season and really brightens up some of those heavier dishes that warm your heart. This lemon squeezer is one of my favorite tools for extracting fresh citrus juice.
