My Winter Favourites

My winter favourites|Harassedmom

Is winter over yet?

I am really over being cold! There is a lot I do enjoy about winter – scarves, soups, comfy pjs – but there is a lot more I don’t enjoy – cold, dark mornings, trying to keep kids warm, dry skin, brown grass.

It is enough now. I need the hot summer days!

Even though we are a month away from Spring, I thought I would share a few of my winter favourites.

My boots – I love these. LOVE THEM. They are warm, comfortable and quick and easy to put on. They are the best thing I bought this winter.

I probably wouldn’t have made it out of bed this winter without my daily Vitamin B. It really does make a difference when you start taking it daily!

My scarves. I found this blue one at Pick n Pay – isn’t it such a great colour? I wear a lot of denim and this goes perfectly with it and it obviously keeps me warm. I have a few others that I alternate between.

I was given this Woolworths hand cream for my birthday and it is the best cream. I am a bit fussy about the cream I use, I hate runny creams or ones that are too oily. This one is just right, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling too oily and the fragrance isn’t too overpowering.

And my last favourite is the Pick n Pay Vegetable Soup mix. I have tried the one from Woolworths, Checkers and Spar and the PnP one is the best one. I am still struggling to make the perfect vegetable soup – the other night I did successfully manage to make a pot of what tasted like dirty pot water but with the PnP mix I get it more right than I do wrong.

Tell me some of your winter favourites.

    Ah, we have had some of the most divine soups this winter – between my mom and my MIL, they just have the magic touch for a hearty pot of delicious winter warming!
    We actually had sweet potato & carrot soup for dinner tonight. SO good!

    I agree with you about the dry skin. I hate that! And static hair! But my favourites are definitely soup and afternoon naps in the sun, right before the sun sets.

      AH yes the static hair. Awesome for me that has dead straight hair, my hair literally looks like a drowned rat!

      Cool and COLD are two very different things. I can handle cool, cold is my problem.

      The scarves and boots don’t make up for the cold though – even the super pretty ones πŸ™‚ It is definitely getting warmer now though

      I enjoy the cold for the first few weeks and then it just gets too much!
