Snowbound and Homebound

You Northeastern folks may think I am crazy, but I was so badly wishing that I was having a blizzard weekend. What a better excuse to stay inside, light some candles, open a good bottle of wine, and cozy up doing all the things you want to do but feel guilty doing on a clear weather day. So besides a quick walk outdoors, I tried to spend the remainder of the weekend indoors pretending I had a snow day. I thought it would be fun to round up a list of some excellent blizzard necessities that I would surely have on hand if I was living in a winter wonderland! Now Dallas, I am ready for a snow day!

Ideal Snowy Scene

A picture perfect snow day.

Sferra’s Dorio blanket has soft fringe trim and a pretty palette of neutral colors for the ideal blizzard accessory.

Lisa Vanderpump Fur Throw

Lisa Vanderpump fur throws are quite a delight (I received one for Christmas). The tassel detailing on the corners adds a chic touch.

Cashmere Shawl by Subtle Luxury

I hate to say it, but I live in this cashmere shawl wrap. It is by far the thing I wear the most. I have it in other colors and always find it keeps me the perfect amount of warm indoors. By Subtle Luxury

Garnet Hill Cashmere Socks

Cashmere socks are a necessity in your snow boots or your bare feet. Garnet Hill makes some that are feel good and affordable.

Shanghai Blue Soy Candles from OKL

I also received these for Christmas, and they were a delightful surprise! Beautiful chinoiserie pagoda soy candles from One Kings Lane. They make the ideal compliment to a coffee table book and they don’t smell bad either.

Nest 3 Wick Grapefruit Candle

If you don’t have a fire place, candles often have to suffice.  Nest makes the most fragrant three wick candles that burn beautifully. The grapefruit smells intoxicating in all seasons.


Andalou Naturals 10000 roses shower gel

I am obsessed with this body wash. It is made out of 1000 roses and has a smell that is very intoxicating. Also, it is free from all the bad stuff that lurks in other body washes (I recently read an article about SLS in literally EVERYTHING we use and how bad it is for you!). If you love the smell of roses, you will adore this.
Beauty Counter Lustro Jasmine Face Oil

Beauty Counter is another brand that I have taken great interest in. This Jasmine oil not only smells like heaven, it also offers wonderful moisturizing  properties that leave your skin flawless in complexion.

Dyson Heater

In case you are short on heat, or worse- your power gives way- this Dyson heater is stylish and very effective!! Tried and tested!


Read And See


The ightingale by Kristin Hannah        The Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham                                         Troublemaker by Leah Remini           Elizabeth Strout My Name is Lucy Barton

These books are all binge worthy. True page turners that will have you wishing snow days lasted forever.


Making of A Murderer        The Man in The High Castle

The Americans     The Good Wife

These are just a few of the shows I have binge watched recently.

If you haven’t seen Making A Murderer you are missing out on a very compelling documentary series that captures a real life corrupt court.

The Man in the High Castle is a show that has a very interesting storyline of what would have happened if America didn’t wine WWII.

The Americans is a show with a complex tale of a seemingly American family who are in fact Russian spies. It makes for compelling entertainment.

The Good Wife is a true delight of court cases, romance, and enjoyable banter,
