Where I'm from, when the meterologist predicts really cold weather with a chance of snow, people tend to over prepare. By over prepare, I mean clear out just about every aisle in the grocery store, especially the bread aisle. We southerns do not take kindly to the threat of snow and ice. Generally I like to keep my home stocked with groceries and other necessities, but I do have my own cold weather essentials I like to keep on hand for those really cold days. My essentials are a little less necessity and a lot more indulgence. I mean, when you're trapped inside you might as well treat yourself. Check out my snow day indulgences below.


As a fashion & lifestyle blogger and I'm always looking for the latest trends, hot travel locations, and recipes and magazines provide me with the latest in each of these areas and more. 

Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is a childhood favorite of mine. I remember being little and my mom making us hot chocolate in really cold days. I would always ask for extra marshmallows! These days I even add sprinkles as a special treat.


Being stuck in the house is the perfect excuse to snack! I usually try to keep my snacks as healthy as possible so that I won't regret all the snacking I did in the cold weather when the warm weather comes. Popcorn is always at the top of my list when I think of healthy, but still tastey snacks.


You can't be comfy without cute comfy pjs. Enough said. I mean what are cold days for if not for being comfortable?


Anyone else like to bing watch the entire season of their favorite shows? Good, I knew it couldn't just be me. When it's cold outside I know there's a 95% chance that I will bing watch some show on Netflix or Hulu. I'm currently loving Jane the Virgin. 

What are some of your cold weather essentials?
