This may not seem like a big deal to the rest of North America, but it rarely snows in Seattle. The city isn't really equipped to handle it, and also - most of Seattle is built on treacherous hills. The city essentially shuts down when it snows. Having not lived in a snowy climate as a kid, I find snow enchanting - but only for a day or two, before it just becomes gross and slushy and ew.

So I thought I'd share fun winter things. Like my earmuffs. They were a gift from S. two Christmases ago - they're owl earmuffs from Capo and Stubs. They fold up into a little sandwich which makes them easy to store, and I love them.
I have also been favoring this easy, "winter bright" look - just a touch of warm color on cheeks and lips (paired with neutral eyes and shaded brows). The two I've been rotating are Becca Beach Tint in Strawberry (unfortunately a discontinued shade, though I think Papaya is probably nearly identical), and Illamasqua Libido. The cream shades are nice for that natural, lit-from-within flush of color. I stipple them on with the RT Stippling Brush, and finish with MAC Whisper of Gilt all over my face to give winter skin a bit of a boost.
