How to survive winter

Now I would like to clarify that it’s not actually winter yet, Winter solstice is on the 21st December (sounds so magical doesn’t it!)

However, what with there being snow on the first day of December and very cold temperatures all round, it basically feels like winter now. With the crisp mornings and snowfall comes the disaster: cracked lips, waterfall for a nose, flaky skin, frozen toes etc etc. I’m sure you guys know what I’m talking about!
So how to combat it? I haven’t quite mastered the art of getting through winter gracefully but I’m willing to have a good go at it this year! Here are my top five tips, some may seem just a tad obvious but here we go:
  1. Lip balm, carry it everywhere! You too, men. Cracked, bleeding lips target everyone so go grab a tin of Vaseline and shove it in your bottomless pockets! BONUS, it can double up as a hand cream! Just rub some onto those dry patches on your hands; been there, done that. Would recommend!
  2. Now this is for the makeup wearers among us, I’ve decided that I don’t like matte lip things anymore. More so in the winter, just the thought of having to deal with matte lips is making my shoulders tense up, eugh. I’ve started getting into lipglosses, there are some out there that aren’t super gloopy! They’re a better alternative in my opinion because they kinda help out in the dry lips department instead of making it worse, as matte lipsticks would! I’ve only got one lipgloss at the moment, so I’ve taken to layering it over existing lipsticks I have to mix it up a little!
  3. Packets of tissues, have multiple. Your friends may not be as prepared and that stuff runs out fast so try to have at least two packs on you at any one time. Maybe one in your coat pocket and then another in your bag?
  4.  Ok this one may not work for some people depending on the type of shoes you wear, but I’m planning on wearing those fluffy “bed socks” with a pair of heeled boots that I have that are a size too big. Also, why are they called bed socks? Who wears socks to bed? My feet would get so sweaty :/ Do you wear socks to bed? Let me know! But anyway, even if you can’t wear fluffy socks, you could wear some ankle socks over your tights or wear multiple pairs of socks! Anything to keep those toes intact.
  5. Speaking of tights, don’t you hate it when you take one step out of the door and your tights have already fallen down well below your crotch and you have to do that awkward pulling-tights-up and-trying-not-to-flash-anyone thing? The only semi solution I’ve come up with thus far is tucking my top into my tights and then putting my skirt on. It isn’t foolproof but it has helped my tights stay up for way longer that they usually would’ve. This trick can usually last me the whole school day!
That’s all I’ve got today guys, until next time!

I feel you about the matte lipsticks, I never wear anything but lip balms. And I tip I learnt from my mum is wear a pair of black underwear or really short shorts over your tights.

Oh that’s a really good tip!! Thank your mum for me 😂
