Guest Post – 6 Winter Essentials You Should Carry With You

Have your lips started to get flaky and dry? Does your nose look pinker than usual? Do you feel like drinking coffee at the middle of the night and cuddling? Well, if the answer is yes to all of these questions then you must know that winter is here and it is about time you should buy a few items that you cannot do without during this ultimate dry season of the year.

Following is the list of the 6 essentials that you must keep in your bag wherever you go in winters:

  1. Travel Size Moisturizer:

With winter, come ugly patches of dryness on body which leaves you looking like a zombie. You would not want to travel looking like that, now would you? Therefore, keeping a travel size bottle of moisturizer would help in keeping your skin hydrated and alive because using it only once before you leave home would not suffice.

  1. Chocolate Bars And Nuts:

The cravings for sugar in winters get heightened and the cold weather makes you want to munch every now and then. To keep you warm and to satiate your cravings, chocolate bars and a few dry fruits in your bag serve the purpose perfectly. Chocolate also helps to fight off the symptoms of cold that is easy to catch in winters. Who doesn’t want excuses to eat a chocolate or two after all!

  1. Pocket Perfume:

All our senses get magnified in winters, especially the sense of smell. Therefore, keeping a pocket perfume in your bag can leave you with a fresh and beautiful fragrance even after hours of traveling without any worries and those around you also like it.

  1. Hand Mittens:

Hands and feet are the most exposed parts of our body to the outer atmosphere and therefore, they stay the coldest. Instead of rubbing your hands and trying to produce heat, it is safer to keep a pair of knitted gloves or mittens. It is one of the most important things for your winter haul, especially if you’re traveling to a place where there is severe cold or snowfall.

  1. A Compact First Aid Kit:

Accidents in winters are increased due to snowfall and slippery roads. It is therefore important to keep a compact first aid kit with a few essential items in it that you might need in case of emergency. This will make your journey safer and you will be able to travel free from stress.

  1. Lip Cream:

Keeping a good quality lip cream with you is of great importance in winter. Whether it is pure, colourless and unscented balm or something more fancy and coloured gloss, availability of something to keep your lips hydrated is of high significance. Lips are the most sensitive part of the face and leaving them dry and flaky as they become in winters can be really embarrassing and a cause of discomfort. Therefore, while packing your bag, do not forget your favorite lip balm.

I came across Glitter Lips when I was at Clothes Show Live back in December and thought they would be absolutely perfect for Christmas parties, glamourous outings and lots of other fabulous events throughout the year that I may be attending so I was so excited to add this to my beauty collection. Slider_Diamond_in_the_buff After some debate I opted for Cherry Pie – a dark pink sparkle. I love dark pinks and purples and I feel they really bring out my hazel eyes and found it was the perfect choice for me! They have lots of colours to choose from though including golds, silvers and blues so there’s something for everyone! Cherry-Pie-Pot Model-wearing-Cherry-PieWith up to 8 hours wear and a transfer resistant finish, Glitter Lips is party drink, even kiss proof and comes with anΒ attention guarantee.

It was so easy to apply and I easily wiped away at the end of the evening with a make up remover. (Make sure you use make up remover as it doesn’t come off very easily with just soap and water!)
