It’s cold outside! 2021 is proving to be an unusually cold and long winter for North Americans—thoughts and prayers to the people suffering in Texas. Canadians are fine, but what about the rest of us? And on February 2, the groundhog did see it’s shadow, so there is about another month of cold weather ahead.

New Yorkers are being reminded of 2018 when they woke up to two feet of snow on April 1st! But there are ways to cope with and even get some pleasure from colder temperatures. Fashion Reverie has curated a list of items—some practical, some sexy, some just plain fun—to keep you snug and comfortable all winter long!

Cosy House Weighted Blankets

The latest trend in sleep hygiene is weighted blankets. The idea is that the pressure from the blanket can increase serotonin, a chemical in your body that makes you feel happy and calm. Experts refer to it as “deep-pressure therapy.”

 While there’s not much scientific support, many people who suffer from anxiety or other ailments swear by it. The weighted blanket from Cosy House has smooth, evenly weighted glass beads for ideal comfort. This blanket is perfect for couples to snuggle under on freezing nights.

Smoko-Heated Potato Slippers

Everyone knows once the mercury drops it’s critical to have a soft warm pair of slippers to protect your toes from frigid floors. Smoko-Heated Potato Slippers from Urban Outfitters are lined with super soft fleece that provide a much-needed sense of whimsy with their fun design. But much more than that, use the USB port to heat up them up when your feet are turning to popsicles!

Zadro Luxury Towel Warmer

One of the major downsides of apartment living in New York City is your landlord often controls your heat.  A friend of Fashion Reverie spoke of his absolute dread of bathing in winter. Being wet and naked in a cold apartment is the worst. One thing to make this less awful is a towel warmer. Not only will you be able to slip into a warm towel (or bathrobe) after stepping out of the shower, but it will keep mildew from forming on towels extending the time between washing.

Duck Window Installation Kit

It’s odd that so few people take advantage of plastic window installation kits. Not only are the plastic panels quick and easy to install, but the benefits are tremendous. All you’ll need is measuring tape, scissors, a hairdryer, and a few minutes. Your home will become significantly warmer, and you will see a reduction in energy costs. Block drafts and prevent heat loss for less than $10.
