Stay INSIDE! I’m thankful for the seasons, I truly am. It’s one of the reasons why I won’t move out of the tristate area (for now), because I don’t believe that other areas of the United States can experience the seasons in their totality. But this weather right here (anything under 40 degrees) is NOT for me!
It-is-cold! And not just that kind of cold where you can throw on a cute fur jacket or your ugg boots and be good! It’s the type of cold where you really shouldn’t leave your house, and if you have to leave, you need to wear leggings under your jeans and multiple sweaters; not cute!
My only feasible option on how to deal with this weather is to stay inside, but if you must face the cold winter air, you should have one of two things with you!
TEA or COFFEE! Funny thing is, if you would have spoken to Kelsley 2-3 years ago, neither of these two items would be in my personal pantry. I try to avoid caffeine at almost all costs because of the effect I’ve seen it have on my skin. As far as tea goes, I’ve always thought that only a particular type of person enjoys tea, because it’s always been nasty to me! But as of lately, that’s been the only two consistent things in my diet!
I may be a little biased when I say this, but Wholesome Pantry’s mint tea is by far the best mint tea I’ve ever had! I find myself drinking two cups a day which is definitely not the norm for this non-tea drinking girl! I can’t pinpoint what it is, but it has just the right amount of mint to soothe my mind, body and soul!
GIVE ME CAFFEINE! Like a said above, I really do try to avoid caffeine, but when I need it, I try to stick to the coffee in my house (dunkin and starbucks give me the jitters) and I add a tonnnnnnnn of sugar! Because in my personal opinion, it’s not the taste of coffee that keeps people coming back, it’s the low key addiction that they’re in denial about. Coffee never tasted good to me until now. Peets dark roast coffee is delicious, it’s the only coffee that I’ve been able to drink with no sugar, no milk, no nothing! And the best part of it all, is that it gives me the boost of energy I need without feeling like I’m going to have a heart attack!
So if you’re currently staring out your window at the frigid winter air then grab a cup of tea or coffee, your choice, kick up your feet and stay cozy inside!
These Winter Winds keep blowing…
