Another winter storm is coming, so I will be entertaining Mr. Mickey with light snacks and a glass of wine this evening. Staying at home is often the best option these days, so I’ve learned to make some life adjustments.
I get dressed for the day, even if I may indeed be staying at home all day. However, I am dressed if I need to help my parents or go grocery shopping. No one has to wait for me to get dressed before I can show up.
All I need to do is grab gloves, a scarf, and my coat, and I’m on my way. That little crossbody camera bag has become my most dependable everyday accessory. Never leave your handbag in your shopping cart. They can disappear in an instant, as I almost learned first hand this week.
Nothing is new, so similar items are in the following links. Shirt – Sweater – Jeans – Loafers – Scarf – Coat – Gloves – Bag. Shopping links may allow me to earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.
The animal print loafers are very comfortable, but they are never as easy to style as solid neutrals. As a result, the look always feels too busy, but the white shirt, gray sweater, and black straight-leg jeans may be the best combo yet.
I’ve been doing Yoga with Adriene here every morning this month, as I mentioned earlier. I can’t always do the poses very well, but I keep showing up with a positive attitude. It has become a ritual I look forward to.
If you have large pores, try occasionally using a baking soda and warm water paste as a gentle exfoliant. My skin feels smooth but not dry afterward. (Caution: Medical aestheticians tell me this is not good advice.)
A very beneficial thing I discovered this month is Cod Liver Oil. If you’ve had long-term digestive issues after gall bladder surgery, one teaspoon per day may solve your problems too. Read about all the other benefits here. If you have arrhythmia Atrial Fibrillation and take Eliquis or any other anti-coagulant, you should NOT take Cod Liver Oil or any fish oil supplement without consulting your doctor.
