Winter storm Jonas is expected to rumble its way across the East Coast this weekend, bringing Northeasterners blizzard-like conditions. And while we've prepared with extra bottles of water and our go-to snacks, successfully tackling our first snow-in of the season requires more than just a dutiful mix of Netflix and chill. Hence, our handy-dandy guide below to a snowed-in weekend.
To turn heads on any last-minute run to the grocery store, take a cue from Hollywood’s A-listers and pack on the layers with panache. Let Karlie Kloss, Rihanna, and Chrissy Teigen inspire your bundled up ensemble, or see how Jamie King and Kate Bosworth each slay in a parka. If you’re a tights kind of girl, these three options are sure to block any wind-chill. However, you may want to quickly hit “add to cart” if you’re missing the fashion essentials and cold-proof staples you’ll need to truly brave the storm.
Once you’re safely at home, consider how you’ll want to spend your time indoors. Is relaxing on the couch your move? These affordable space heaters provide the definition of cozy. And if you’re literally always cold, turn to an oversized throw, ballet slippers, or a porcelain mug for help. Food can help heat things up and entertain you, too. Opt to finally take on that rotisserie chicken recipe you’ve been eyeing, or explore a unique, Japanese take on the traditional Hot Toddy.
Most importantly, don’t forget to make time to simply relax. Use fresh, easy to find ingredients to implement “me time” with these three DIY masks for your skin and hair. Don’t have time to shop for the essential items? Head to your kitchen and create these hair masks with things you definitely already own. Better yet, boost your pampering mode with 10 beauty products that not only cleanse your skin, but also turn up the mercury.
Looking hot while staying in? Sounds like the perfect weekend to us.
