Winter 2016 Favorites

This post is a little late as the first day of winter was December 21st, but we still have a lot of winter ahead of us here in Michigan. Here are a few of my favorite things for this winter season:

Faux Fur Infinity Scarf ($59.50)

I am obsessed with the scarf, I pretty much never want to take it off. It is the coziest thing I have and I love it!

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s Polish

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite themes (it was the theme for my bridal shower) so I was thrilled when OPI came out with their own take on it. My pick for winter is the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” color – the perfect winter white!

Alfani Cape Blazer ($64.99)

I LOVE this blazer. I have so many sleeveless dresses that just don’t work in the winter. I like that this is loose and flowy. It also comes in black.

A Thousand Wishes Candle ($22.50)

I cannot have enough candles! For winter, A Thousand Wishes is my jam with a festive blend of sparkling champagne, crystal peonies & almond crème what’s not to like?

INC Embellished Cold-Shoulder Sweater ($38.99)

I love the embellishment on this sweater – great for going out when there’s snow on the ground!

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme ($1.99)

I’m sort of obsessed with the smell of coconut! Nothing says summer like a coconut, especially in the dead of winter. A little goes a LONG way with this foot creme. I slather it on at night and put socks on over it to help with cracked heels.

Vince Camuto High-Low Colorblocked Sweater Tunic ($99)

I like the colorblock style in this tunic! They do have a hot pink version that I’m not sure I could pull off, but I’m warming up to it!

Blowfish Shocks Bootie ($49.95)

I need some cute winter booties and I like the look of these!

RumChata MiniChatas ($12.99)

I recently saw this in the grocery store and thought “What an amazing idea!” I am not a coffee drinker, but they would be fantastic in hot chocolate!

Athleta Polartec® Power Stretch® Pant ($98)

When it’s at least 30 or above we will walk Sport in the winter months and these pants would definitely come in handy. It’s easy to layer up on the top, but not so easy on the bottom. Plus these would also be great for lounging…

Winter 2015 Favorites

It’s the first day of winter, which is fitting in Michigan because so far it has been unseasonally warm. I don’t expect it to last so as we prepare to bundle up for winter, here are a few of my favorite things to help you stay cozy!

FootNanny Chocolate Foot Cream ($48)

Endorsed by Oprah, this company has a cool story, but I am always on the lookout for a good foot cream and who doesn’t love chocolate.

Footnanny chocolate

Laredo Over-the-Knee Wedge Boot ($40)

These are definitely on my wish list, but I can’t decide between the black or taupe color.


CND Vinylux in Peacock Plume ($6.19)

I love this color, it is so fun to get you through the drab winter weather.

Kate Spade Somerset Cardigan ($198)

I need a new black cardigan so I can still wear all my sleeveless summer dresses in the winter with tights. I love the bow detail on this one from Kate Spade.

Martha Stewart Collection Luxury Flannel Sheet Sets ($88.99 for King)

You can’t go wrong with flannel sheets in the winter. I love that they have these in our colors and cannot wait to get cozy this winter!

Wake-Up Light ($99.99)

I’ve heard of these before, but have never seen one in action. As Sport and I get up early every morning to walk, this would be great to help me start my day. This video is pretty much my morning, haha! I can’t find an embeddable video, but make sure to watch it on Amazon, so funny!

Kate Spade Embellished Wool Sweater ($298)

I know this is pricey, but it really caught my eye and I just love it! A great reason to use up those Nordstrom notes!

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Steamer Solutions ($139)

This is amazing and the perfect solution to the dry winter weather! I would LOVE to be able give myself a full facial at home. The price isn’t bad either for what you get.


Mixed Media Sweater Dress ($89.50)

I got this dress on Black Friday and love it! I received a ton of compliments on the first wear.

Mixed Media Dress

Long Leather Gloves ($198)

I wanted these last year when they were part of The Limited’s Scandal Collection. These are a little pricey, but they are 50% off right now, so get them quickly!

Winter 2014 Favorites

Winter is officially here and it’s my job to make sure you are prepared to bundle up and enjoy it with some of my favorite things. After last year’s Polar Vortex I am hoping for a milder winter this time around. But if not, I am prepared to hibernate. Without further adieu, here are my favorite things for winter:

Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache Souffle Body Creme ($60)

Laura Mercier has a whole line of pistachio flavored body treatments and creme. This stuff smells SO good. I can’t wait to stock up on the body creme for the season.


Bamboo Chic Drape Front Cardigan ($90)

Many of my favorite bloggers have raved about this cardigan a.k.a. the blardigan and it would be the perfect way to stay cozy during winter.


OPI Thank Glogg It’s Friday

This color is from the new Nordic Collection. I would get the regular color as well as the gel. I did like the My Voice is a Little Norse sparkle color for a little extra on the ring finger or all of the nails for an extra bling.

Helan Women’s Faux Fox Fur Shawl Cloak Cape Coat ($38.74)

I got a luxurious looking fur trimmed cape at a small local boutique. I can’t tell you how many complements I’ve already received on it and it was only $80! Can’t beat that! It looks so much more expensive than it is. Unfortunately, it isn’t available online, but I did the next best thing and found a similar look for less which looks just like mine:

Wen Winter White Citrus ($32.82)

I can’t wait to try the newest Wen scent, especially since I just finished my fall trio. You can also try the Winter Cranberry Mint and the Winter Vanilla Mint. Check out my original post on the benefits of Wen.


Cable Knit Arm Warmers ($16.50)

I could use these as I am writing this post – I can’t feel my fingers at the moment.

Vanilla Bean Noel Candle ($12)

John usually doesn’t like candles, but even he commented on how good it made the house smell.


Verilux Happylight 5000 Energy Lamp ($44.98)

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is especially prevalent here in the cold Michigan weather. I thought I would try to combat it this year with 30 minutes under this special energy lamp. You can bring it to work or keep it at home, but I think this would be great for both John and I to keep our energy up this winter.


Ombre Faux Fur Vest ($69.97)

This is so much fun for winter. I need to get this and hang out in a winter resort destination.

MNG by Mango® Long-Sleeve Mon Chéri Sweatshirt ($39.99)

If you haven’t noticed a theme yet, it is cold in Michigan and I need to stay warm. I’ve been meaning to add a graphic sweatshirt to my wardrobe and this is just the cutest thing!

UGG Classic Short Sparkle Boots ($190)

I never used to like UGGs and then I got some knock off UGGs and loved them – they are SO warm. I think I would be willing to upgrade to the real thing and these sparkle ones are so cute!

Winter Favorites

Saturday was the first day of Winter, so I thought I would share some of my Winter favorites. In Michigan the weather is usually pretty snowy, wet and cold so you have to make sure to have the right gear.

Columbia Boots ($120)

I used to have a job where I had to stand outside in the cold and do media interviews. I had to have the right gear to keep my toes warm and these babies fit the bill. They are awesome for winter, whether you are at an outdoor sporting event or shoveling snow.

 Wen Winter Cranberry Mint ($29)

I’ve been a Wen girl for pretty much the whole year now and I still love it. You can read more about my journey with Wen here. This is the latest seasonal scent from Chaz Dean.

Kate Spade Amelia Coat

I have long been looking for a coat to wear when I am dressed up and this is perfect! It isn’t available at the store anymore, I have been watching on my favorite place, eBay! You can find the Amelia coat here.

Neosporin Lip Health Overnight Renewal Therapy

I am like the dad in My Big Fat Greek Wedding that sprays Windex on everything. Anytime someone has dry skin or chapped lips I just put some Neosporin on it. That’s why I love this overnight product from Neosporin!



JCrew Excursion Quilted Vest

Sarah wore this on Sean’s season of the Bachelor and I’ve had it on my watch list ever since. The hot pink version is my favorite. This is also another one I have been following on eBay, here.

Whoopie! Cream Shea Butter ($30)

I discovered this at a spa in Vegas and love it! It smells so delicious and I later found that it was featured on Oprah’s favorite things list in the past. It used to come in a jar, but now they have developed a new pumpable style.

Liz Claiborne White Cowl Neck Sweater on QVC ($29.86)

I originally posted this as one of my looks for less from The Bachelorette Week 4. I ended up buying it for myself and it is my favorite thing to wear this winter. I may have to get another color.

CND Shellac/Vinylux in Steel Gaze

This is a fun holiday color and it would be great to spice things up!


Kensie Embellished Sweatshirt ($24.97)

These sweatshirts are all the rage, and I thought this one with both leather and embellishments was double the trouble!


Cliffs by White Mountain Freewill Boot

I have never been able to find a boot that fit my calf, but these do the trick. I randomly found them on Black Friday and since I can’t wear heels yet, these have been awesome! For any girls with larger calves, these are the answer!
