Brrrrrr!!!! The weather forecasts freezing temperatures and snow!
From watching the weather forecast, Snow is expected to hit Britain as Artic blast drifts in this week !
How is the weather in your area? Do you have snow yet? I have put together 5 winter essential accessories to keep you warm.
Are you a winter lover or do you hate this time of year?
Accepting the cold….This time of year when the frost hits or even snow, the scenes all around the country are breathtaking.
The bit I love most is when the air is so icy fresh and seeing beautiful white untouched snow. Last year I remember watching the snow fall from my bedroom window. Looking out and watching the snowflakes fall was quite magical. The snow fell heavier and heavier which meant the following day I was able to work from home.
We have plenty of hills near to where I live and this will mean people of all ages sleighing down the hills when the snow sets. Even those that don’t own a sledge, will get their hands on something that will slide on the snow. I have even seen a person on a baking tray whizzing down the snow hills before.
To enjoy this cold weather. Here is my top 5 Winter Essential Accessories.
No.1 Boots and Wellies – 5 winter essential accessories
In the UK boots and wellies are very needed. During winter I am mostly found in boots, just like the ones pictured above on the right.
Generally, I wear my brown leather boots or my grey Uggs. However one year I didn’t listen and wore my untreated Uggs outside in the thick snow and completely ruined them and had to get a new pair. I won’t be making that costly mistake again.
This time of year comfort is trendy, how can anyone not like that?
Wellies are also a key item. My wellies are situated inside by back door as they are super handy. I’ll be putting these on for sure if the snow hits and I have to venture outside.
When investing in wellies look for a good comfy waterproof pair. I wear nice thick socks with mine, when I try on wellies I make sure there is room for the socks too.
No.2 Gloves and Mittens – 5 winter essential accessories
Unless you like blue cold fingers, gloves/mittens are essential. There are lots of different types. When my Daughter was young, I used to sew the ribbon to each end of her mittens and run this through her Winter coat. This stopped her losing her cute little mittens. Trust me, this is a good life hack.
Recently, I treated myself to a new pair of burgundy leather gloves. It was such a shame that I’ve misplaced my old pair, maybe I should attach my gloves to my coat also.
Leather gloves are a personal favourite as their a great fit and I don’t find them inconvenient. I find them great for driving also. Honestly, you will notice the difference, when you get into your freezing car with gloves. Holding the cold steering wheel with ease and a good grip is also so much safer than slippery gloves or trying to drive with your cold fingers.
Touchscreen gloves seem to be a pretty big hit also.
No.3 Layers – 5 winter essential accessories
Layer yourself up! This time of year I wear plenty of layers. I would rather take something off if I am too hot than be too cold.
This doesn’t just apply to outside but indoors as well. A large comfy throw is placed on our Sitting Room sofa so we can snuggle up and keep extra cosy.
Snuggling into the warm furry throw on a Winter’s evening, sipping a nice hot chocolate with a nice scented candle is one of my favourite past times.
No.4 Hats! – 5 winter essential accessories
Not everyone is a fan of hats. I love them, I wish more people wore them. There are so many different types. Over the years I have tried on so many to see which suits me best. My Favourite to wear is the wide brim Fedora hat. The Fedora suits my head best.
Other Ladies look so lovely with their beanie bobble hats, but it’s so sad that the bobble hat doesn’t suit me. A hat really will help keep you much warmer. If you’re having a bad hair day, it hides it! Hey, no need for that dry shampoo!
A scarf is not only useful but can totally transform your outfit. Scarves can be worn in different ways too. With such a vast range of scarves on the market to suit all tastes and budgets. For Winter I recommend a nice cosy wool or cashmere scarf.
When the freezing cold winds howls towards my face, I just lift my scarf up to protect my face.
If you have old winter accessories that you no longer use, why not fetch them from your cupboard and give them to a homeless person? It will not solve there overall problem but it will help. It breaks my heart knowing that there are people sleeping in the bitter cold.
Hope you all stay warm .
