The Warmest Winter Coats at Wellensteyn

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Although it hasn't been cold yet in New England, we all know it's coming. Having a really warm winter coat is essential to get you through the winter months filled with snow, freezing rain, slush, wind and bitter cold. 

Wellensteyn, a German outerwear brand, just opened its first two stores in the United States, one of which is at the Wrentham Outlets in Wrentham, Mass. I was really excited when the company invited me and a friend to come visit the store and try on their huge collection of winter coats, jackets and vests. 

Their coats are super warm, waterproof and wind resistant, perfect for the New England winter conditions. My favorites were the long coats with fur lined hoods and high collars. There were also some really cute short puffer coats, vests and jackets for slightly warmer weather. Overall, they had tons of styles in different lengths, fabrics and colors.

I think the best part about these coats is that knowing you will be really warm and comfortable when you wear them. I have no doubt that I'll be wearing mine a ton this winter. I ended up getting the Stavanger coat in black. 

Thank you again to Wellensteyn for hosting us at your new Wrentham store!


Current Makeup Routine

Monday, December 14, 2015

I haven't done an updated makeup routine post in a long time and I've been watching a lot of YouTube tutorials lately so it's the perfect time to fill you in on the makeup I've been wearing on a daily basis. I've gotten a few new makeup products recently and have integrated those into my routine so this includes some new items and some longtime favorites -- and both include some drugstore and some more pricey brands. What are some of your current favorite makeup products?


Dry Skin Essentials

Saturday, December 5, 2015

During the last few weeks, I've really felt my skin starting to dry out because of the cold weather and the heat being on indoors. Every year there are a few holy grail products I turn to to keep my skin hydrated as much as possible. The best part is, most of these products are pretty affordable so no need to worry about using them sparingly! 

What do you use to keep your skin hydrated during the winter?


On My Bookshelf

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

After You by Jojo Moyes: This is the long awaited sequel of Me Before You and I can't wait to read it and see what Louisa is up to!

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Currently reading this and really liking it so far. It's a "Sliding Doors" story about a girl who moves back to her hometown of LA and makes an important choice. The story plays out each scenario of her decision.

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff: This book has been getting a lot of buzz and since I liked Gone Girl, One Day and other love/relationship stories, this one sounds like it has potential. It's about a marriage between two people that goes awry and as a result, secrets about each person are revealed. 

Room by Emma Donoghue: My mom saw the movie and then recommended the book to me. It's the story of a mother imprisoned in a single room and how she survives and raises a son.
