So the weathers pretty bad at the moment- I woke up at 7 and it was as dark as if it was 9 o’clock at night! It makes it pretty hard to get physically out of bed in the morning, even though winter is one of my favourite seasons (Fashion wise- I love scarves and beanies so much!) There are some things that help me get through a cold winters day- a must have. So the first one is a really good cardigan, I have several, all in grey- they are in varying lengths, and made out of different materials, these are super easy to wear under jackets, or rain coats- and they keep you warm enough. Another thing that you will need if you want to survive in the rain is, well, a rain coat! I have a yellow “Rains” raincoat- which is very easy to pack into small places, so its good if you need to put it in your school bag. A warm scarf, and/or beanie is also great, they are really nice and they keep your neck and head toasty! I think that another essential you should get are plan black opaque leggings- they are super basic to have but you can pretty much style them with everything! If you are into fitness, or you fitness levels drop over the winter, getting some long Nike/Adidas sports leggings are great as well, I’m wearing mine now, and you can also wear them around the house!
Things I also think that you need aren’t stuff you wear, but stuff that just helps me cope with being cold. So the first thing is getting lots of blankets! I have an electric blanket that goes on top of the mattress of my bed, and they keep you really warm, if you want a cheaper option, hot water bottle are seriously easy and they keep you just as warm as anything. Now I don’t know about you, but I LOVE tea, and I have several favorite teas that I love to drink when I get home, when I’m watching a movie, and when I’m reading a book, these include peppermint tea, liquorice tea (It’s black licorice, so you might not even like it, my mum doesn’t like it at all), another one I love is Peach and green tea, not only does it taste amazing, green tea has amazing health benefits. Something else I love about this particular tea is that you can use it with cold water as well, so on hot days it great as well, and I love just plan black tea (with cold water and two sugars). Thats only some of the teas I love- I could probably do a whole blog post on tea! Another thing that is good, but more of a luxury are bath bombs & candles, I can recommend lush, mainly because their bath bombs are so amazing, and also they are very well made- they don’t test on animals, which is something that we should be support!
So thats that, thanks for reading
