My Winter Essentials

On days like today when it is below freezing outside here in Ohio, there are a few things that I feel are essential to surviving the cold...

-C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve: This salve is my new favorite. I use it on my lips and have used it for my cuticles as well. It smells amazing and I have been using it constantly!
-Trader Joe's Sipping Hot Chocolate...just trust me, you need this. It is divine.
-Warm, cozy gloves and a matching hat (I got these arm warmers for Christmas and I'm obsessed!)
-Camellia Hand Cream: My hands have been getting so dry with this winter weather we've been having so I needed a nice lotion to lather on.
-A good book to curl up on the couch with. I just finished Divergent by Veronica Roth and started The Storyteller by Jodi Piccolt.

Here are a few of my favorite cold weather recipes:

Stay warm out there!

I just got the rose salve a couple months ago and I love it!!! I find myself putting it on all the time. I could not believe how cold it was this morning, my car has a brand new battery in it and it took a little more umph to start this morning. Did you like Divergent? I have been thinking about reading it but have a couple other books on my list right now.

I love Camellia hand cremes and the rose salve!

The Storyteller was excellent, I thought, one of her better books. I hadn't liked her last few, I will admit.

I made a steak and potato pie last night...love pot pies, perfect winter food!

Hot chocolate is a must. Divergent is next on my list. Did you like it?

My hands can not get enough lotion these days! I would definitely call these essentials. :)
Hot cocoa? Of course!

I wouldn't survive through the winter without a good chapstick. And sometimes that doesn't even help. What did you think about Divergent? Do you plan on reading the rest?

Did you like Divergent? It's on my Goodreads list...

I'm addicted to chapstick in the winter. I'll have to check out the rose salve.

PW's meatloaf is the bomb! I made it once for family (who had a negative perspective on meat loaf in general), well, they loved it and ask for it every time they are over for dinner!
