Winter Essentials!!

Here are a few things that I love to have for Winter!

Yummy warm drinks (in super cute cups of course)! I got the gold mug during our National Lampoon, I mean, family Christmas Vacation ;) & my/D's cousin found the Alice & Olivia tumbler I was looking for!

I love a good manicure! Here are some of my favorite polish colors of the moment: Essie-Power Clutch & Essie-Beyond Cozie. I recently found Revlon's scented nail polish line. I'm such a sucker for fun new products! I bought it in the color/fragrance Spun Sugar (the gold color). I can't wait to try it! Nail polish is a great way to add some color & vibrancy to life during the more dreary days.

I'm loving some faux fur!! My parents got me this vest for Christmas.

I also love lots of faux jewels to go with my furs (& all my winter coats for that matter). The beauties above are from ellandemm.com

Another great winter thing is a beach trip. It's not really a "must," but it's great to have some sunshine time thrown into the winter cold monotony. I've been fortunate enough to have 2 small beach trips this season. 

We got a tin of gourmet popcorn during Christmas & the cheddar popcorn is my go-to snack of choice. (My men love the plain & caramel, so it works for us.) I might order some more as a treat after the Daniel Fast.
I just love a warm, crackling fire on a cold night (& a warm, snuggly husband)! D got me a fire pit for Christmas for the backyard. I LOVE it!! We have a fireplace, but the boys are loving playing outside in the cold & the fire pit makes the great outdoors a little more bearable for me. :) 

Finally...a planner is absolutely an essential! I think I say that every year. I like the handiness of my phone calendar, but nothing beats a good paper calendar! For the fourth year in a row, I have an Erin Condren planner. I wanted to try out something new, but nothing compared. Plus, I picked the collage cover for this years' planner & put some of my favorite pictures on the front & back of it. You can't beat that! It has almost EVERYTHING that I need to manage my household.  I also keep a small planner in my purse. This year I got the small planner from JCrew during a Christmas sale. I love pretending to plan out my year! (For God to completely change my plans :))

What are some things you love or can't do without during these cold months?
