It’s December and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Too many baked goods early sunsets make me want to work out never. Personally I am not a fan of the cold weather so I’d like to see this season come and go quickly, but with Farmer’s Almanac predicting a very cold and wet winter I don’t think I’ll get my wish. Weather you love this time of year and all the cheesy made for tv holiday movies or not; here’s a list of some items to get you through the winter.
When you need something warm to drink I recommend this Good Earth Tea. With all natural flavors and packaging made from recyclables what’s not to love?! They’re flavors unique and are stronger than most brands which is always a plus. Having water that kinda taste like tea is never good. It’s carried in most major grocery stores, but it is online if you can’t find it!
Trying to shop with a purpose this year? Then check out Freedom in Fashion. They’re an Atlanta based (yay!) social business helping marginalized women get back to being independent and learning job skills. They have a wide variety of scarves with my favorite being the skinny scarves. They even have a collection of College game day colors so check it out and shop with a purpose.
Cold weather means netflix and If you need a good quality show then I suggest When Calls the Heart. Season 4 starts after the new year so you have time to get caught up in the story. It’s a wholesome show with the main characters showing good christian morals. No foul language or sexual content in this one. It’s about a one room school teacher who grew up privileged and ends up working in a coal mining town. Makes for a good mother daughter show. It airs on the hallmark channel.
Winter always reminds me I have a crock pot to cook with and I recently made this Beef stew. it’s easy and good. You can get the recipe here at Life in the Loft House.
