My goal this year for this blog is generally to encourage myself to follow through with the fun posts that I often start, but don’t make it to the published stage. I did a fall favorites forever ago, and I have one for every season, started, but not finished.
So, here I am a year and some odd months later to share with the world. Here are some winter favorites of mine.
face & body oils
Of course, I actually have a post started on why I prefer oils over lotion, but I think this will do for now. Over the past two years, I’ve almost completely transferred over to using oils as a moisturizer. This one is my favorite facial oil, it has a lovely smell and is very affordable. I don’t want to give you a solid favorite body oil yet, but I like using Rosehip Oil especially for stretch marks. It doesn’t smell all that good, but it works great! I also like using fractioned coconut oil as well.
We’re latte fans over here, and we steamed our milk a multitude of ways. And then, realizing it was something we’d use daily, we got a milk frother. I’m not one to have one use appliances, but this is worth it. Making a matcha latte has never been so easy.
Jordan treated me to new slippers this winter before having Margot. They made cozying up at home this winter so much better.
I shared my favorite podcasts this fall and have discovered many more. I enjoy listening to them at home while cleaning, nursing, or playing with Ruby. I’m pretty sure they help me be a better mama, because I can multitask so easily and learn something new! Jordan’s long work days don’t seem as long.
covered goods nursing cover
Covered goods sent me a couple nursing covers and they have been a life saver. I use them several times a day, not just as a nursing cover, but a car seat cover, a blanket, a scarf, and unfortunately sometimes a burp cloth. I like that they fully cover me and baby while nursing keeping it warm and cozy when it’s cold.
Those are just a few of my favorites this season, and pretty soon I will get to share some Spring favorites. Hoping it comes soon, I’m over coats.
What have been your favorites this winter season?
