Some / Things : Winter Essentials


"My picks for keeping warm, well-dressed and cold-weather ready all season long."


Wherever I go, I always have a toque in tow. I love the texture and muted colour of this hand-knit toque by Westlake Designs. To keep my lips moisurized I love Rosebud Perfume Co.'s Minted Rose Lip Balm. A little dab on a dry nose works wonders too.  I protect my hands with J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Salve. The beeswax base and natural oils are great for nourishing  your hands overnight. And I love the refreshing lemon scent. Speaking of bees, I keep these adorable handkerchiefs by Jenna Rose on hand or tucked in a shirt pocket. They are soft and lightweight and come in the prettiest prints. As someone who commutes and walks downtown, I rely on my Canada Goose parka or buffalo plaid coat from J.Crew to keep me warm all winter. But they keep me so toasty, that as soon as I board the train or step indoors, I can't wait to take them off. Silk shirts like this one from Joe Fresh help keep me cool and composed while travelling and at the office. It gets dark early so I like to add a bit of shine to my day with bold jewels from J.Crew. And for an afternoon pick-me-up, Mast Brothers Chocolate does the trick.
