A Cold Winter's Night

Old man winter came for a visit, liked the CLE and decided to stay.  As temps have been hovering in the teens (with wind chills headed below zero) even the snow lovers are cold.  Locks and doors are frozen and you'd better keep that shovel right next to the scraper in the trunk.  When you're out and about there's nothing like a heated seat and being bundled up to your eyeballs!  When you're inside, crank up that fire and check out these snuggly ways to stay toasty.



Craving a Starbucks eggnog latte? No chance in h*ll you're leaving the house? Making one is super easy.



Steam equal parts egg nog and milk.  I use fat free (milk) since I'm not a fan of the super heavy custard-like texture of nog.  Add a shot of espresso, a little cinnamon or nutmeg and you're good to go.  Top with whipped cream if you're so inclined. 



This pairs wonderfully with Trader Joe's Almond Snowman Cookies.  Actually, anything with these cookies is super fab.  They are so good I think I'll be hiding them from my husband.  They have a delicate almond, butter, sugar cookie flavor sprinkled with sparkly (snow-like) sugar on top.



Snuggle up with your nog and some of these super cuddly treats.  Go ahead, gift yourself!


Restoration Hardware cashmere cable knit hot water bottle $39

I know, I'm probably the only person under the age of 70 that uses a hot water bottle.  But when you live in a drafty 150 year old house you get chilly.  Fill it with hot water from the sink, get on the sofa and you'll be warm for hours!  And who doesn't love cashmere!


RH monogram cashmere robe $249

RH mini cashmere hand warmers $15 (reusable) perfect for coat pockets

RH cashmere cable knit throw $184 (was $379!)




Banyan Tree headbands $20

Banyan Tree fleece lined leggings $26

So stay in and treat yourself to a snow day.  Everyone else is getting one, why not you?
