Winter Beauty Essentials and Favorites

These are a few of the things that have been keeping my going the last few weeks. It's not a far stretch to say that I'm not a huge fan of winter. Don't get me wrong, I love the changing seasons and I try to make the most of it with winter specific activities like skating and snowboarding but I'M OVER IT!
I don't know about where you live but it has been way too cold in Toronto to do anything but indoor sports and sitting on the couch in my Snuggie. This brings my to my flat lay of favorites pictured above. 
Even in the dead of winter, my morning ritual barely changes (and when I say barely, I mean that I sub in a hydrating serum or layer a deeper perfume.) 
It may sound trivial but having a morning routine can nix stress and always make you feel on point. Don't forget that when all else fails, there's coffee!
