7 Ideas for Getting Through Winter

7 Ideas to get you through the rest of winter • @SavvyHome

There was an article on The New Potato this morning that starts like this: “So help us, if one more flake falls, if one more sweater pills because of ridiculous overuse (seriously, looking at our white cable knits that were so fresh and so clean at the start of the season is starting to make us physically ill), or if one more person hits us with their umbrella again…we’re moving. It can be anywhere along the equator, a place called Sticksville, as long as it’s 70 degrees fahrenheit or higher; we don’t care. Forget all our ambitions: We’re cold as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore. “

Sound familiar? I picked up a friend to go to dinner the other night during yet another snowstorm and as soon as she got in the car, I lost it: a full-blown rant about how I really can’t deal with this weather any longer! My skin is beyond-repair dry, my vitamin D levels are at an all-time low, I can bear to look at my winter clothes for another second. I am done. Good news: daylight savings is this weekend! So technically we can all start Spring cleaning and updating our wardrobes, because before we know it, it’ll be Memorial Day weekend.


1. Sprinkle in a few new arrivals into your wardrobe like lighter jackets and sexy heels2. Seriously kickstart your skincare routine with water replenishing masks, skin relief serums and intense antiaging treatment3. Enough with boots! Sandals, flats, heels, get your feet ready for summer! 4. Nothing says Spring like fresh greenery. Pot a few of your favorite plants to refresh your home. 5. Spring clean! Use these great tips (and amazing products) and throw away, dust, scrub and air out. Your home will feel brand new. 6. It’s never too early to add a few summer essentials to your wardrobe. Plus, if you’re going away, you’ll get to use them sooner rather than later! 7. Organize: clean out your closets, invest in baskets or even organize your keychain. Mine needs some serious editing.
