Please excuse the singular post this week; I got sick…again. It’s so annoying! This is twice in one month I have caught something, and this rarely happens to me. Hopefully, this is the last time I will be ill this season (knock wood).
I guess not feeling well inspired this week’s Fantasy Wardrobe Friday. I decided to put together sort of a sick day outfit, as well as showcase a few things that help me to be a bit more human when I am really feeling like a piece of junk!
First of all, I love to drink Celestial Seasonings India Spice Chai Tea. It’s my absolute favorite! I am not a big tea fan, but I like teas that have spices in them. I always add milk, sugar (the naughty stuff), and a little organic coconut oil for some extra health benefits. This tea has become almost an addiction for me, and no other brand has come close to the flavors this one has. It’s sooo YUM! It’s even better in a cute mug…
Another thing I like if I am coughing or have a dry throat are organic lozenges by Zand. I hate medicinal tasting cough drops like Halls, and so normally I would do without. However, these blueberry flavored lozenges taste like candy. Have them on hand when you are sick and you will want to constantly have one of these lozenges in your mouth!
A couple of other essentials that make me feel a bit more energetic and less crappy are a good lip balm, and my tinted moisturizer by TheBalm. Winter is already dry enough. When you have a cold, you just feel as if every part of you is drying out even faster (except if you have a runny nose, that doesn’t ever seem to dry out fast enough).
Aside from the items already mentioned, my idea of trying to be comfortable on a sick day is to keep warm and wear relaxed clothing. You will usually find me wearing sweatpants or pajamas, a long sleeve shirt, and cozy slippers. I loved these printed pants from Topshop when I was looking for clothing for this post. They looked super comfy, and I adore prints (granted, I probably would not wear $90 pants to take a nap and be ill in, but that’s why this is Fantasy Wardrobe Friday). I chose a basic gray sweater to wear with them, and some toasty looking slippers.
Hopefully, you all find yourselves healthy for the rest of the season! I am counting the days until warm weather is here and I don’t need to worry about catching as many nasty bugs!
