Hooray for making it more than halfway through the winter! Winter can be a bit of a drab, but I’m here to share with you a few of my favourite things I’ve been loving this season that has helped me get through these dark, short days.


The Body Shop Body Butter in Shea

I’m sure you’ve all heard of (if not tried) body butters from The Body Shop. I personally dislike lotions that have really strong scents, so I’ve stayed away from the body butters for a while. However, the Shea scented body butter is perfect. It has just a gentle lotiony-scent, but nothing overpowering. Body butters are sooo moisturizing (just look at the consistency!) for the winter and are perfect for massaging into your skin right after you come out of the shower.

Pixi Glow Tonic

I’ve been seeing Pixi’s Glow Tonic around Youtube and social media for a bit now and have heard great things about it. After a couple of visits to my local drugstore, I finally found one in stock (it was the last one left, hehe). I have only used it for a week, but am really loving it so far. While I haven’t seen a big difference in the ‘glow’ of my skin, it definitely makes my skin softer and less flaky! I apply a thin layer of the glow tonic with a cotton pad after I wash my face/before I apply moisturizer at night.

Sloane Heavenly Cream Tea

If you’ve been hanging out with me in the last few months, you’ve probably heard me rave about this tea. Sloane’s Heavenly Cream Tea is a black tea that is infused with a sweet, creamy flavour. This tea smells SOOOO delightfully good; if you ever come by the tea you have to give it a sniff! Add a bit of maple syrup (or any other sweetener you want) plus a dash of milk and you’ve got yourself a fiiiine cup of tea. Plus, can we just talk about how cute the packaging is?

Squish Froyo Gummy Candy

I am honestly not a huge candy lover. Other than chocolate, I rarely ever crave candy. But I tried these froyo candies at the Squish store and was instantly sold. It’s categorized as a ‘decadent’ gummy candy because it’s really soft and almost melts in your mouth. I have a few friends who find it too soft, but I personally love it so much that I already bought my second bag. After I devour this bag, I’m excited to try out other ‘decadent’ candies from the Squish store!

Nike Rally Fleece Sweatpants

When I’m at home, I basically live in these. I actually got them last summer when I was in a bit of a retail therapy mode (oopsies) so the exact one I have is no longer available, but here is the latest version of the Rally sweatpants! Honestly, they aren’t the cheapest (especially for sweatpants), but I have deeefinitely got my cost per wear out of them. They are super baggy and comfortable, making them the perfect pants for lounging around in.

Urban Outfitters Flip Mittens

I know these look like super basic mittens, but I honestly love them so much. They have a slit on your thumbs which is PERFECT for turning on your iPhone screen with touch ID and texting outdoors without having to take your mittens off. Plus, the insides are lined with a soft, plush fabric which keeps your fingers warm without being too bulky. Unfortunately, UO does not carry these anymore but if you ever find gloves with slits in the thumbs, I definitely recommend trying them out!
