Winter is here and amongst us whether we like it or not.  Since we change our wardrobes and other things during the cold months, why don’t we make our rooms a little winterproof too?  Whether you’re living in a dorm, apartment, or still at home, here are some things to get your room nice and cozy for the winter!

  • Get a heated blanket.  Once you get a heated blanket, you’ll never go back!  They’re so nice to curl up in after coming in from the cold weather. (Maybe add it on to your Christmas wish list!)
  • Purchase a fuzzy rug!  Chelsea Crockett - RugPurchasing a warm, fuzzy rug will make your room cozier and winter ready.  It’ll even be an added decoration to make your room more stylish! 
  • Buy a humidifier.  The air outside gets ten times drier during the winter which can mess with your skin and lungs.  Get a humidifier to help with any dry skin, stuffy noses, coughs, etc.!
  • Get a couple holiday scented candles!  A scented candle totally gets your room into the holiday mood.  Whether you like a Christmas cookie scent or a pine scented candle, you can find the perfect one to fill your room with.
  • Find the right temperature.  Nothing is worse than an overheated or freezing dorm room.  Find a temperature that’s perfect for you.

Have any more tips I should add to the list?  Let me know so I can try them out for myself!

When winter starts to roll in, there are certain things to do to prepare your closet for the cold weather ahead.  I always make sure my wardrobe is ready for the season, whether it be summer or winter.  Make sure you check these essentials off your list so you can be ready, too! 

  • Change your closet from warm to cold.  My closet used to get extremely cluttered with all of my summer and winter clothes stuffed together.  Switch out all of your shorts and sandals for pants and booties!Chelsea Crockett - Winter Outift
  • Purchase a neutral, warm coat that will go with a majority of your outfits.  Finding a coat that is both stylish and keeps you warm is key for the cold weather!
  • Also, purchase a good pair of snow/rain boots.  Especially if you’re in college, walking to class in the snow without a good pair of boots will be awful!
  • Know how to layer.  When it comes to looking stylish in the winter, layering up with different shirts and jackets is a necessity.  I sometimes find it hard to find a cute outfit to wear and be warm at the same time.  Knowing how to layer like a pro is the perfect way to achieve this!
  • Purchase the perfect winter accessories that go with your style.  Accessories such as beanies, scarves, high socks, tights, etc. are the best way to spice up your outfit and make your outfit warmer at the same time!  You get the best of both worlds, right?  

I hope you’re all prepared for an awesome winter ahead!

Lemme tell ya… cold weather can be rough on the skin!  As soon as the temperature drops, my face starts getting drier and drier.  I’ve tried different products that have worked for my skin type and others that have made it even worse.  I’ve found a few DIYs you can do at home that actually make a difference and cost almost nothing!

  • Egg yolk on your face might not sound like the most pleasant thing, but egg yolk contains proteins that help with shedding skin!  Mix together a teaspoon of olive oil and two egg yolks.  Apply the mixture to your face for about 5 minutes and rinse it off with warm water!Chelsea Crockett - Lemon Face Mask
  • Mix together a teaspoon of sugar and the juice from half of a lemon.  The sugar works as a scrub to remove any dead or flakey skin.  The lemon juice helps promote skin growth which leaves your pores smooth and glowing!  Scrub the mask on in a circular motion for about 10-15 minutes.  Then rinse it off!
  • Dry skin doesn’t only appear on your face.  If you have problems with dry skin on other areas of your body, put a cup of sea salt in a warm bath and relax in it for 20 minutes or so!  If you repeat this process 2 or 3 times a week, your skin will be detoxed, smooth, and hydrated!
