Hey guys! I just got back from a day trip to Stowe, VT yesterday, which was amazing! It was my first time in the town, and it was a ton of fun to run all over seeing the sights, and playing in the feet of snow that they had! I will post on that a little later, but in the meantime, you can catch a highlighted story about it on my IG!
Anyway, while I was there, I realized that I definitely needed to share a list of products that I have kept coming back to over and over again this winter, since I brought three of the five with me that day alone. I definitely love collecting things, but in the end, there are always those few, high quality items that I use all the time, almost exclusively; shunning all the other items in favor of the few. During this period of realization, it would probably be a good idea for me to get incorporate the Marie Kondo method into my life, but I don’t think I’m brave enough…lol.
So, with all that being said, here are my top 5!
This, without a doubt, has been my favorite water bottle ever. I received it as a gift from L.L. Bean this past Christmas, and I have not stopped using it since. It goes everywhere with me. For me, hands down, it’s the quality that puts this at the top of my list. It feels so sturdy in your hand, and the mechanics of the top are the best on any water bottle I have used. I plan to buy a few more of these to ensure that I will be using this style for years to come!
I’ve been intrigued by Yeti for a while, and finally purchased their 20 oz. rambler in sea foam to see what all the fuss was about. Now I know. These ramblers are incredible! I fill it to the brim with hot chocolate and can sip it slowly for hours, and it is just as warm at the end as when I started. They make awesome gifts too!
I have worn these every day this winter, and they have not failed me. Sadly, I am a little late to sharing these with you because they are sold out online…but! their shearling lined tumbled leather boots are similar, and probably even warmer!
For all you gopro owners or potential owners out there, I have gotten a ton of use out of my adventure kit as of late. Ok, so maybe I don’t yet use my gopro on a daily basis, but I have brought it with me snowboarding and swimming with manatees this winter, and it’s been so great that the adventure kit needed to make this list. I have used both the handler and head strap on these trips, and they have been amazing! I am working on getting content together in preparation for starting my own Youtube channel (I will probably post more on that sometime in the near future), and this kit has really come in handy.
P.S. the handler floats, which means you can have fun in the water with your camera without worrying about losing it to the depths of the ocean, river, or lake!
Everyone on Instagram is constantly asking me about my nordic mittens. I got them on Ida Auken’s etsy shop. She is based out of Trondheim, Norway, and hand knits all her mittens. Even the yarn was made in Europe! I am absolutely in love with them, and recommend her shop anytime I can.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
