Project Club will return next week (although you can certainly still report on any progress you’ve made here). I thought we could shake things up a little, because my friends, winter is coming.
I never look forward to it, and I’m dreading it even more than usual this year–the cold, holiday madness, driving in the snow, pitch darkness at 5 PM. Yuck. I thought it might be nice to help give each other ideas for beating the winter doldrums. I’ll start:
For dry, itchy winter skin: Peter Thomas Roth’s Cucumber Gel Mask
It’s a little pricey, but if your skin turns to pure dust, sandpaper, and sadness in the winter, like mine does, this stuff is AMAZING for soothing and moisturizing, and it will make you feel very fancy. I got a sample at Sephora and never looked back. (Sephora samples: very dangerous.)
For faking that cozy log cabin feeling: Fireplace For Your Home
Yes, I’m serious. This is playing on my TV right now. It’s super silly, but also adds the perfect amount of soft, warm light that makes my apartment feel less like an underground bunker in the evenings. And I have allergies and couldn’t handle a real wood fire even if I had a fireplace, so it’s perfect.
I don’t need to explain wine, do I? Bota Box is cheap and good and lasts forever in the fridge. I especially like their Shiraz, Malbec, and Nighthawk Black blend.
What about you? Please share your tips and products for getting through the dreary winter slog ahead, whether they’re for specific problems the cold weather brings, or just general things that cheer you up when the weather gets gross.
And for everyone in the South/California/etc, SCREW YOU, YOU JERKS. (Just kidding, I love you. Please share your holiday survival tips too.)
