As I've ranted about a thousand times before, my life is incredibly stressful lately. Not that others don't have stressful lives! I've just been crazy overwhelmed and have barely had time to myself. It's work, study, sleep, repeat. That's just the way it goes when you're in this crazy (but rewarding!) profession.
So one of the things that keeps me going is indulging in some cozy, comforting rituals. Here are some of the things I find most comforting this time of the year.
Bath & Body Works Candles -- Marshmallow Fireside is uber scrumptious!
Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Butter
Nivea A Kiss of Milk & Honey Lip Balm
Bath & Body Works Cashmere Glow scent
Philosphy Shampoo, Shower Gel, & Bubble Bath
Hot herbal or green tea
Starbucks holiday drinks -- especially Gingerbread Lattes!
Snuggly oversized wool sweaters
Fuzzy cozy woolen scarves
Holiday songs! -- thank you for the Pandora Christmas station!
Christmas decorations -- and Pinterest surfing for ideas
Holiday cooking and baking -- especially adorable gingerbread men cookies!
