Five Essentials To Stay Warm & Healthy This Winter


Good Morning Lovelies, 

Anyone else wondering when the spring sunshine will be making an appearance? Don’t get me wrong, I love the rain when snuggled up inside, but when faced with going out, I miss the warmth. 

With two health conditions that affect my body a lot when it comes to the cold, I have learnt many ways though to keep warm however. Ways that I wanted to share with you all, in case you were on the look out for some new bits and bobs to help you. 

Everyday, you can find me wearing or using the following to help my mind, body and health stay as best as it can be…

Fluffy Socks: Head to Primark lovelies and get yourself a whole host of these socks! I always wear two pairs of socks. Even when I have my slippers on! One pair of ankle socks and then some long fluffy ones on top. My feet, which suffer badly from Raynaud’s, stay toasty warm throughout the cold weather by doing so. 

Touch Screen Gloves: I almost always walk around with my hands in my pockets. God I love a pocket! However, in the winter, I protect my hands further with touch screen gloves. These allow me to check my phone without having to suffer from the frosty temperatures. Perfection! 

Vitamin D, C and B Capsules: Mostly every day, I take a number of vitamins to help keep my immune system built up. My ED has meant that I am more fragile when it comes to cold and flu season. Taking these vitamins allow me to stay protected. I truly believe that they have stopped me from getting seriously ill since I started them. 

A Beanie or Head Scarf: During the warmer months, I like to protect my head from the sun with light head scarfs. In the winter, I protect it further from the cold with a classic beanie. Forget ear muffs or over the top fancy hats. The beanie does it all and doesn’t cost very much at all! Currently, as I write this, I’m wearing a Typo x Friends one. My head has never felt better! 

Cosy Sweaters/Cardigans: Winter is all about layering up! Grab a fluffy jumper, sweatshirt or cardigan and wrap up in it. I love a sweatshirt or cardigan best, as they make me feel a little bit fancy. Odd I know, but when something makes you feel good lovelies, go for it! 

These probably all seem like quite normal winter essentials lovelies, but I wanted to share them in case someone needed a bit of help finding a new way to stay toasty and cosy this season! Oh, and another little thing lovelies, fluffy PJs for the win! 

How do you like to stay cosy during the colder months lovelies?
