I grew up in New England, and I currently consider NYC my home. Since I’ve lived in the North East my whole entire life, I’ve disliked February since before I can remember. It’s the one month out of the year where I feel completely miserable. By mid February, the snow is no longer a stunning bright white, but a yucky brown that has iced over. The temps are well below freezing. And the wind chill hurts my face and dries out my skin. I also become hermit and only leave the house for necessities, like work and grocery shopping.
Deep down I know spring is almost here, but it’s hard to remember when you’re experiencing -7º temps on a regular basis — and this winter has been extra harsh due to all the snow. Just go away! We don’t think you’re pretty anymore!
Due to my winter blues, I’m starting to crave color again — both in my wardrobe and my beauty routine. For our February 2015 Wish List, you’ll find beauty products that’ll make your skin glow, colorful accessories, athletic ware (because bathing suit season is on its way), tea, and stylish shoes that you can still wear in the spring — all for under $39.00. Woot!
