I recently got a chance to catch up with one of my girlfriends, who called to request a little assistance in packing for a ski trip. Out of my whole circle of friends, I am the only one who loves winter temps, snow, and ice! While others dream of summer, beaches, and bikinis, I am all about the cute and cozy fashions of winter! (big coats hide my chub…just sayin’) I also enjoy winter activities: hot cocoa by the fire; skiing; ice skating; you name it. Call me crazy, but I much prefer being cold, when I can just snuggle under cozy down filled blankets, as opposed to the sweltering heat of summer, when all I can do is…just be hot. LOL.
Naturally, when my friend called, I had a list of super cute and cozy items to recommend to her, which of course, she loved! Now that most of the east coast has been hit by a frigid arctic blast ❄️, there is no time like now than to share a few winter getaway luggage essentials, for those who have trouble figuring out what to pack! Among the selections are some really cute sweaters, and my favorite cable knit Ugg socks! I’ve made sure to link all of the items for you below!
Protect your skin from winter’s harsh and frigid air, with this Ulta Winter Prestige Skincare Kit! I ordered this the moment it became available for purchase, and I am in love with the Goodal Moisture Barrier Eye Cream, and the Nyakio Maracuja & Yangu Soothing Oil! (Both included in the kit!) I have combination to normal skin, but I do suffer from little ring-wormy looking patches of dry skin in winter, so skin oils save my life! The good thing about oils made specifically for the face is that they don’t clog your pores, or cause breakouts. If you’re going to be hitting the slopes, or hiking snowy trails, protect your skin! And don’t forget about your lips!
Makeup sets like these make traveling so easy because there is no need to pack your big bulky makeup case. Believe it or not, I prefer nude lips and softly Smokey eyes in winter, as opposed to bright lips (which I love for Fall). I had been lusting after this Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Complete Look Gift Set, forever, and I finally took the plunge and ordered a few days ago. It hasn’t arrived yet, but I’m excited to try my hand at attempting this sultry look when it does!
Pack everything up in a chic and sleek, hard shell spinner suitcase, like this one from Delsey! I love hard suitcases because they stand up to all weather conditions, and protect your belongings, all while being surprisingly lightweight and easy to manage!
Are you guys doing any traveling this winter? Hubby wants to get away to somewhere slightly warmer, like Punta Cana, or even Atlanta, GA. I’m wanting to travel to Vermont, to enjoy some snow and stock up on maple syrup! Drop me a comment below and let me know what your travel plans are, and your recommendations for the best places to stay! ??
See ya next time!
