Protect yourself from the wind

I need not go to Chicago to have my hair blown by the wind. Where I am right now is enough for me to experience the wind. It has always been like this in the Philippines when the snow from other parts of the world starts to melt and the Northeast monsoon gushes towards the Southeast. If I could no longer bear to shower directly from the shower head, it is already a sign that I should stock up on products with moisturizers and thick clothes to keep me warm and moisturized 24/7.

A lip balm to lock in moisture thus preventing chapped lips.
Burt's Bees nourishing lip balm, $2.99 at Small Flower.

If you look pale without lipstick, here is Lip Fusion  Balm by Fusion Beauty. It will give your lips color and then moisturize it up to 6,000% if you use it continuously for 4 weeks. That's a lot of moisture! Get this at for $22.

The face needs as much moisturizing as the lips. Try this Sephora instant moisturizer, $20 at Sephora. This has HydroSenn+ that not only moisturizes the skin but also prevents appearance of future signs of aging.

Never leave the house without putting on lotion. Nothing beats Jergens lotion in moisturizing the skin. Get it at your favorite drugstores. It is $5.49 in Target.

Keep moisturized and at the same time smelling fresh for hours with this Victoria's Secret Sensuous Escape body lotion with cocoa butter. It deeply moisturizes and nourishes the skin with its Vitamin C and E. Get this for $9.

Cozy up in a cashmere sweater. This A. P. C. sweater will do the trick, $355 at Net-A-Porter.

A biker jacket will also keep you warm. This Walter hooded leather jacket is on sale at The Out Net for $196.50 previously $655.

Juicy Couture ruffled chiffon jersey scarf, $68 at Zappos Couture. Scarves a great accessory during cold and windy days.

You have got to learn from the Middle Easterners to wear a Bedouin scarf. It is their armor against the windy desert. This All Saints Bedouin scarf in beach coral is just perfect, get this for $90.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
