That winter we just had? It was long. I'm a December-born, snow-loving ski bunny but I was cold all the time this winter and forgot what it was like to feel warm. New York froze me to my bones and I was (and still is) this close to dropping some dolla dolla bills on le Canada Goose.
The other day I tried a sample of a very moisturizing coconut facial moisturizer. As soon as I breathed in the coconut fragrance I melted into its rich, warm, and exotic scent. I wanted to live in that fragrance. In addition to exfoliating with a deliciously scented almond coconut scrub every day, burning coconut milk scented candles (currently Voluspa Bella Sucre), and eating lots of thai green curry, I've been talking Bahram's ear off about Hawaii and checking flight deals several times a week. Until I feel the warm sun on my skin and see coconut trees in my line of vision*, I will immerse myself with coconut scented things.
What is your favorite scent right now?
*but not right above me, because coconuts falling on your head is no bueno
This was my fourth outfit for NYFW, one that was totally appropriate for -15 deg C weather as you can see. But even if I did lose all feeling in my lower extremities, I thought my winter white skirt and sweater went well with the frost on the ground. Priorities!
