Christmas Countdown: 15 Days Till Christmas
Earlier this year, I uploaded a post titled 5 Girl Struggles in Summer, listing 5 common struggles that girls have to deal with when it is hot outside. Quite a few people commented on how they could relate to the struggles I listed as well as including some of their own so I thought I would upload the Winter version, listing 5 more girl struggles.
We have all been there, you spent ages straightening your hair this morning to look nice for work, only to get to work, take your hat off and discover that your previously straightened hair now has taken on the shape of your hat. And to make matters worse, the hat has also made your hair static! Why do we even bother?!
Being Too Cold Outside and Being Too Warm Inside
I love the fact that everywhere has the heating on in winter because it is a welcome breath of warm air whenever I go inside the office or a shop, but spend more than 5 minutes there and you will find yourself getting too warm and quickly stripping down to your t-shirt. This would be fine if you were there to stay but often it is when I am getting a coffee to go or shopping that I find myself getting too warm and end up having to carry my jumper and coat around with me whilst having to juggle the other three things I am carrying.
The Constant Need for Lip Balm
No matter how often you apply lip balm, you always seem to find your lips dry and cracked. You even buy the lip balm that promises 24 hour moisturisation but still your lips are dry and cracked within 20 minutes! And to make matters worse, you cannot seem to hold onto your lip balm – you are already on to your fifth lip balm of the week. Seriously though, has anyone actually ever finished a lip balm?!
Looking Like A Snowman
If you like your nose being clear and being able to breathe, you need to wrap up warm when the temperature drops. But is there actually a way to look both cute and be warm?! Whenever I bring out my thick winter jumpers and coats, I always seem to resemble a snowman, just with a red nose instead of an orange one!
Snow is magical for the first one or two days after it falls but then it becomes a huge inconvenience. You are constantly slipping over and bruising yourself and no public transport is running so you are practically house-bound. You cannot invite your friends over because no one wants to leave their house and no one can get to your house even if they wanted to because the roads are too slippery. At least you can make a snowman or snow angel I guess…
What is your number one struggle in winter?
