Don't Hibernate!

20, 23, 28, 31, 27...Nope, these are not the winning lottery numbers. They are the predicted low temperatures here in D.C. for the next five days. Yikes! We are also due for snow on Thursday. I know I should be bothered by that, but the kid in me gets so excited anytime that it snows.

I consider myself lucky because I adore cold weather. However, I've noticed that for most people when the temperature drops so does the energy, but it doesn't have to be that way. I decided to make a quick list of tips to help you live it up this winter.

#1-Layer on your favorite hats, scarves, and gloves. Cold weather is the best time to enjoy wearing your best accessories. (see picture of Cameron Diaz, fab as always)

#2-Don't hibernate. Sure a cozy night in your cave is good now and then, but don't let yourself become stagnant. We are not bears. There is no need to hibernate because we wear clothes. Get dressed an go out.

#3-Stay moisturized...inside and out. Glob on the oils and lotions. Protect your skin from elemental aging. Drink lots of water. This will help you stay healthy. Nothing can ruin a good time like a nagging cold.

I hope this helps you to stay warm and happy through the cold winter days ahead. What are your winter survival tips? Please share.


  1. Great pic of Cameron. Funny thing about her - women either love her or hate her it seems. I happen to adore her!!
