Winter Items You Can’t Live Without
With the ice and snow from the Polar Vortex beginning to melt, it?s easy to look forward to spring. Unfortunately, warm weather is still a few months away, and now is the best time to score discounts on winter apparel. While the items are still around, stock up on a few of these winter necessities for both this season and next year?s winter. A Scarf For Warmth ? Not Fashion Okay, it doesn?t have to be hideous or anything, but fashion scarves made from satin, silk, linen, jersey, and other lightweight materials are not meant for warmth. Grab yourself a nice alpaca or wool scarf and learn a few fun ways to tie it to make it fashionable. A scarf is always a fun accessory for men and women?s winter coats, cardigans, and sports jackets. Once it warms up a bit, you can turn to those beautiful fashion scarves once again. Waterproof Boots (Galoshes) Sure, they might not match your skinny jeans that well but with the Polar Vortex melting, you?ll do anything to keep your feet warm. There are tons of different styles and shapes of boots, but make sure they?re lined with warm fabric on the inside and coated with waterproof material on the outside! Keep the fashionable boots at home for next fall. Go-To Hot Chocolate Recipe We?re not talking about Swiss Miss here, although, if that?s your favorite, then your job here is done! There are so many more ways to make rich and velvety hot chocolate, from maple-mocha syrup to rich Valrhona cocoa powder. One thing everyone seems to agree on is that it?s better on the stovetop, so find yourself a whisk and a sturdy pan and whip up a batch for your family. The winter is hitting its peak right now, so if you want to relax and let your fingers thaw, hot chocolate is a must! TV Series on DVD The holiday season is over, and you can finally get a little me time with your couch and television. When you?re stuck inside without access to the outside world, you?ll be so thankful you bought the DVDs for Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad. Nothing says winter quite like a snowy outdoor wonderland and a cozy indoor comfort zone. Grab a blanket and your steaming mug of hot chocolate and take a few hours off, getting lost in your favorite TV series.
