8 Ways To Survive A Snow Storm In Style

(Via Paper Fashion)

If you haven't heard, Mother Nature is about to gift millions of people on the Eastern Seaboard with an amazing amount of snow. It's time to get prepared. I'm not talking about shovels and scrapers.  Instead here's a round up of things to do, to sip, to organize, and to buy. Each one is guaranteed to take away the Winter Blues and to survive the storm with style! 


Give Yourself a Facial
We all get busy, and sometimes just don't have the time to do what is good for us. If you can't afford a facialist, here are some of my favorite masks and tools. As pictured above, Sephora's new line of Sheet Masks, are a real treat for your complexion. They offer something for every of skin problem. Best yet, they are only $6 each. I loved the Pearl Mask.   

Other masks I can vouch for are: Kate Somerville Age Arrest Firming MaskErno Laszlo Anti-Blemish 'Beta' Purifying Mask  And you can buy them online and pick it up in store at 

Learn A New Skill
It's been many years since I picked up a pair of knitting needles, but at one time I really loved this hobby. Knitting is said to reduce stress and anxiety. It improves dexterity and even can improve your memory! I have recently found Wool And The Gang, a fabulous website for all things knitted.

" and The Gang pioneers fashion production that's made in a sustainable way, bringing back knitting as a viable means of production for generations to come." Buy a Knit Kit or buy unique fashion and accessories knitted by "The Gang" Take a peek what others like Vogue, Refinery 29, and The New York Times have been writing about. These Knit Kits, fashion and yarn will please the knit pickiest!

Wash Your Brushes!
Okay, this is a task that I need to do ASAP. Each time that I do clean my brushes, I notice a huge difference in how my makeup applies. Today I found these terrific tools for cleaning makeup brushes at the Nordstrom Beauty Blog. I think they are genius. Made by Sigma Beauty, the brushes look fabulous, too.

Download Some Music And Dance!
Nothing makes me feel better than music and dancing. It's super fun to dance when no one is watching. The sound of music transform your mind. The dance movement elevates your soul! Songs on my dance play list are Adam Levine's A Higher Place, The Commodores Lady You Bring Me Up, Michael Jackson's PYT, And no play list is complete without Bruno Mars and Uptown Funk.  put on those dancing shoes and dance away the Winter Blues!

Organize Those Pictures
I hate to admit it, but I have drawers and drawers and even shopping bags filled with photos. I got ambitious a few years back following the death of my precious little pup, Armani. Filling one of these gorgeous silk and linen books with pictures was great therapy. I searched the Internet for the loveliest albums I could find. That hunt lead here. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. You will never regret organizing your memories with style.

Make Some "Adult" Hot Cocoa
I've be jonesing for Hot Cocoa. What's better to drink on a cold snowy day than hot chocolate? To do a proper cocoa, you need to have the right ingredients.  This recipe is from the fabulous Half Baked Harvest.  It calls for Vanilla Beans,which are s much better than the extract. Find them at Dean and DeLuca. If you aren't into making your own cocoa, you will love the Hot Chocolate on a Stick (French Truffle, Peppermint & 3 Chili) at Food52. Finally, you need just the right cocoa container. You will love the marvelous Moon and Lola Quote and Monogram Mugs at The Zhush.  
Find a Barney's Warehouse Wonder
Shop the Barney's New York Warehouse Clearance Sale, and take an extra 70% off all Clearance items. It's my secret source for discount designer goodies. I found this fabulously fringed leather Barney's New York Tote Bag way less than $100. Pack these Embellished Milly Sandals  away for your next trip or to wear next Summer. Restock your gift closet with these Kosta Boda Votive Holders!
