The yearly planning is over and the goals are set. I’m excited about starting this new year fresh and giving priority to the things in my life that I hold most dear and I’m excited to start this monthly roundup of some of my favorite things…things I actually own and use in my everyday life. Today’s January Favorites are all about my Winter Essentials.
January and February are the coldest months here in PA and they always seem so long and dark. I keep holding on to the idea that spring is closer ahead than summer is past, and I focus on the fun parts of this time of year like fun boots, cozy hats and life planners.
That pretty much sums up my current favorite things, appropriate for January and what I’m using most in my life right now. Here we go!
J Crew Nordic Wedge
I snagged these on sale right before my birthday last month and I’ve been living in them ever since. I have booties and winter snow boots but these kind of fall right in between. The color is beautiful and the wedge makes me feel a bit more polished than my snow boots. Oh and did I mention they are super comfy and warm? Yeah, they are like the perfect winter every day boot.

Warm Hat (mine is old)
My sister-in-law got me a beautiful hat and scarf set a couple years ago and I’ve been wearing them through every winter since. I always get compliments on them when I wear them and they are both actually warm and comfortable. Here are a couple similar. Here and Here.
North Face Gloves (mine are from last year)
I have always felt like mittens are warmer but the boys destroyed my favorite pair so last year my sweet brother and sister-in-law got me these gloves and they are my new favorite. They don’t feel bulky so I can wear them to drive. They have the rubber areas for grip and it still works my phone screen. They also clip together so I never lose one and they fit in my purse so I don’t forget them when I’m on the go. Similar Here and Here.
I’ve tried a lot of different planners over the years for my business. I love my phone but there is nothing like having a physical planner to organize my life. This year is my third year for using this particular planner. Not only does it come in some beautiful designs, it’s also perfectly organized by month, and days. I love that each day has it’s own page so I can really get detailed about what I need to do each day. It’s almost like a bullet journal that’s already set up for you. Shop this planner here.
Grove Collaborative Mint Lip Balm
Winters are harsh on my skin and lips and I have tried my share of lip balms over the years. I have a few favorites but Grove’s mint lip balm is a current favorite. It has a soft and creamy texture on my lips and gives a subtle cooling sensation when I apply it. The smell is light and not at all overpowering and no weird flavor either. Find it here.
