5 Must-Have Items for Cold Weather Style

Have you ever had one of those days? You know, the kind of day where you wish you could just crawl back into bed and pull the covers over your head? Back in the days B.C. when I would feel one of those days coming on I used to be able to indulge, occasionally, and do just that — crawl back into my nice warm bed and snuggle in for another hour or three of sleep, then spend the rest of the day lazing about in my flannel pj's, flipping through glossy mags, watching daytime television, and eating soup right out of the saucepan. Then I got married. Then I had a baby…and then another one. And now I know without a shadow of a doubt that I will never again be able to snuggle down in my warm cozy bed without two little munchkins clambering all over me with shouts of, "Mommy! Mommy! I need you to make waffles! Now!" while poking me in the ribs with their pointy little feet and trying to pry my eyelids open with chubby sticky hands. Honestly, who besides a 6-year-old and a toddler can actually eat waffles drenched in maple syrup before the sun has even begun to peek over the horizon? And why, exactly, do small children feel it is their honor bound duty to be bright eyed and bushy tailed at 5:45 am???

So now you know how my day started. And it went rapidly downhill from there. Even though we were awake and whipping up waffles before 6:00 am we were still scrambling to gather books, papers and homework packets, cram them into backpacks along with snacks, lunches and sweaters and bundle everyone into car seats in the hopes of making it to school early enough to miss the four-block-long snail trail of minivans and SUV's dropping the kiddies off at school. No such luck. We ended up right smack in the middle of the bumper-to-bumper traffic jam, and by the time we made it to the front of the school, my little guy had unpacked his entire backpack looking for a "special note" that he had forgotten to give me. So now we had to circle around to the back of the school and park in the visitor lot (and why is the visitor lot way in the back behind the dumpster???) while my little man unzipped all 47 mini pockets on his backpack before he found the note… which was a reminder that I was Snack Mom today! What? I don't remember signing up for this! By the time we got everything safely stowed back into all the zippered compartments the bell was ringing, which meant I now had to physically walk my son into the school office and sign him in as tardy. In my sweat pants and fluffy slippers.Shop The Trend Boutique

After dropping my daughter off at preschool I realized that I would have to skip my Zumba class in order to prepare and deliver a healthy snack for 20 first graders. One look at the list of food allergies and "do not serve" items on the snack chart and I knew a trip to the grocery store was in order. I found mini boxes of raisins on the shelf with the Halloween Candy, some packets of lactose-free string cheese and a big bag of sweet, juicy clementines (which I peeled, quartered and dropped into a ziploc bag while sitting in the grocery store parking lot. I drove quickly (but within the speed limit of course) back to the school to deliver the snacks, and when I got there I found that I had slammed my handbag strap in the car door where it had been merrily flapping for the past 3 miles. Oh, and did I mention that it was also raining?!

So, here I am. Still in sweat pants and fluffy slippers. Waffle mess is still on the kitchen counter. Missed Zumba. Haven't showered yet. And I have to pick my daughter up from preschool in an hour, and my son right after that. But right here, right now, I have an hour of peace and quiet, all to myself! I know exactly what I'm going to do: grab the latest issue of InStyle and a cup of hot cocoa and crawl back into my nice warm bed for a little R & R! After all, I think I've earned it!

5 Must-Have Items for Cold Weather Style

Tailored Blazer: One of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe! A tailored blazer can dress up a pair of jeans or give an edge to a silky dress.

Long Skirt: I am absolutely loving this style for fall, and especially into the holiday season. As much as I adore a shorter skirt with leggings, I really love the femininity of the longer, fuller skirt. The skirt will definitely make a statement, so stick with a plain top, perhaps a fine cashmere or lightweight sweater. A pair of classic low pumps looks perfect.

Chunky Sweater: This is one of my favorite styles for fall and winter. I just adore a warm toasty sweater! Looks great with a pencil skirt, tights and oxford shoes for the office. Wear it with skinny cords, boots and a beret for the weekend!

Rugged Boots: I love boots — they are a great footwear option for a busy mom on the go. Since I am usually toting a tot as well as handbag, shopping bags and other paraphernalia I like to go with a sturdier boot with a sole that grips the ground for less chance of slipping. You'll be amazed at the selection of great style options!

Corduroy Trousers: As much as I love a great pair of jeans, there is just something about corduroy that feels right for fall and winter. Maybe it's because my grandmother used to make me a pair of flannel-lined corduroy trousers every fall and I would wear them every day if I could get away with it! And my grandmother was an excellent seamstress, so not only were they warm, they were very stylish! I like corduroy skinnies or straight leg styles because they look amazing tucked into a pair of great boots!

Well, it looks like my hour of peace and quiet was well spent! Happy fall shopping darlings!

Lavanila Healthy Baby

You lock away cleaning products for fear of baby getting a hold of the chemicals, but what about your beauty products? Many personal care products are formulated with more chemicals than most people realize. In fact, every day, children are exposed to an average of 27 personal care ingredients that have not been found safe for kids (Environmental Working Group 2007). This is why Lavanila Laboratories has created the 100% natural, chemical-free Baby Collection.

Healthy Baby Wash ($16): This 100% natural two-in-one shampoo and body wash gently cleanses without stripping skin of essential moisture.

Healthy Baby Lotion ($15): Providing daily nourishment and hydration, this weightless, fast-absorbing lotion strengthens and supports the development of healthy skin with 30 vitamins and minerals.

Healthy Baby Bottom ($15): Developed to calm irritation and soothe redness, this 100% natural formula provides superior protection and prevention of diaper rash with natural zinc oxide instead of petrolatum, a harsh chemical derived from oil wells during gasoline production.

Healthy Baby Butter ($14): Providing ultra-rich hydration to soothe dry skin and calm redness, this 100% natural nourishing butter is formulated with 30 vitamins and minerals selected to strengthen and support the development of healthy skin.

Healthy Baby Block ($20): Combining titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, this chemical-free, healthy sunscreen protects delicate skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays to provide 100% natural SPF 40 protection.

La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansers
Scrub Ghastly Halloween Makeup Away 

Halloween—the one day in the year when it’s acceptable to pile on a ton of makeup. However, the effects of all that makeup will last longer than the sugar rush from all the candy! The experts at La Roche-Posay understand the importance of cleansing, which is why they have developed Physiological Cleansers to wash away daily impurities.

After the Halloween celebrations are over, gently scrub away costume makeup with Physiological Ultra-Fine Scrub. This mild cleanser exfoliates and cleans the skin, all while respecting its physiological balance.

For that stubborn eye makeup, use Physiological Micellar Solution, a 3-in-1 cleanser, toner, and eye makeup remover. With no need to rinse, skin is cleansed, toned, and left feeling fresh.

To ensure all the makeup is gone, apply Physiological Cleansing Gel, which leaves a unique cooling effect for a refreshing, deep clean feel. The gel texture efficiently cleanses the skin without causing dryness or irritation. Providing effective cleansing to eliminate impurities, it is also gentle enough for use on sensitive skin.
