Winter is a beautiful time of year. It’s all about cuddling up in front of the fire with your loved ones, sipping on hot chocolate, and building snowmen. Right? Well, kind of. Winter is a time for sweet treats and fireside hang-outs, but if you live on a farm then it also means trekking through snow, hacking away at ice, and scrubbing slushy mud off your boots. Dressing in a way that’s stylish, weather-appropriate, and practical for your day-to-day life can be tricky as a farmgirl. Luckily, this guide has got you covered.

Insulated Leggings

Fleece-lined leggings are a lifesaver. They’re super warm and let you move freely, but they’re also stylish and easy to layer. Pair them with a warm coat and boots for work on the farm and dress them up with a cute top for time off.

Cozy Hoodies

When you don’t want to get out of your pajamas but there’s work to be done, hoodies are the perfect solution. There are so many available that you can always find a design to suit you…or go with the easy option and steal oversized hoodies from your brother, boyfriend, or husband!

Fur-Lined Boots

Try to find a sturdy fur-lined boot that’s waterproof, well-insulated, and durable for work on the farm. Avoid fabrics like suede and look for something hardier that’s perfect for mucking out barns and trekking through muddy fields.

Knitted Hats

Knitted hats are super cute and highly practical. After all, you don’t want to get a cold when you’re out repairing potholes or moving cattle in the harsh weather. If you won’t be working with dangerous machinery, you can even go for one with a fun bobble!

Plaid Shirts

Plaid shirts have thankfully become fashionable again in the last few years, so this farmgirl’s favorite is back on the menu for work and play. Layer up with a thermal tee and coat for outdoor work and dress up with skinny jeans and heeled boots for time off.

Heavy Coats

It goes without saying that you’ll need a good winter coat. Oversized jackets are in style at the moment, so if you play your cards right, you can find something that’s practical and fashionable. Make sure that it’s waterproof, hardy enough to survive mud and barbed wire, and full of pockets.

Don’t freak out about how to dress for winter – with this handy guide you’ll have all your winter essentials covered without ending up with a bunch of impractical items you’ll never wear.

Secrets To Achieving Beautiful Skin (For Next To Nothing!)

A good skincare regimen will give you healthy, vibrant skin. But as you walk through the skincare products section of your favorite drug or department store, you’re faced with hundreds of creams, cleansers, and exfoliates that promise to give your skin a healthy and moisturized glow, but generally fall short of your expectations. And skincare aides are expensive, too expensive to be stuck in a cabinet somewhere and forgotten! If you are serious about taking care of your skin and want to save some time and money, try these natural remedies that you probably already have at home.

Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a staple in any well-constructed deli sandwich, but it can also be used as a moisturizing cream for when you have to shave! Whether you are a man or woman, mayonnaise will give you a nice shaving lather and will keep your skin from breaking out in a rash afterward. Using mayonnaise gives you a savings of over $50/year.

Olive and Coconut Oils

While olive and coconut oils are great for cooking, these oils also do wonders for dry skin and hair. Olive oil contains vitamin E and polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants. Coconut oil protects your skin from harmful UV rays. For the best results, simply massage these oils on your skin when you get out of the shower while you’re still damp. Your skin will quickly absorb it and you won’t feel greasy.

Honey

Honey is a gift from nature. Use it as a beauty aid and use it regularly, because contains vitamin B and antioxidants that will moisturize and bring back softness to damaged skin. Mix a bit of honey with sugar and oil (or milk) and make a sugar scrub with it. You can then give your hands, feet, and face a good scrub, rinse and feel the results: super-soft silkiness. A simple honey-and-sugar scrub is an excellent replacement for the chemical peels and synthetic body scrubs found at the store.

Avocado

And you thought avocados were only for making a delicious bowl of guacamole! Well that’s all fine and dandy, but just know that they also turn magical when you use them on your skin. Make a paste using a couple of slices of avocado and apply it directly to your face for about 20 minutes. Once you rinse it off, your skin will be noticeably softer and enriched with vitamins E and C. Avocado masks are much safer for your skin than the chemical peels at the store and it’ll save you hundreds of dollars each year.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera plants have been around for thousands of years and are a natural remedy for sun-damaged skin and injuries; providing much needed moisture to your skin. Not only does aloe vera contain anti-inflammatory enzymes that soothe the skin, but it also has vitamins C and E to actually heal it. Whether you have a sunburn or are looking for a healthy glow, invest in an aloe plant. When you’re ready to use it, just cut off the outer skin of the leaf and scrape out the gel with a spoon and apply it directly to skin.

Fight off the signs of aging, keep your skin healthy and bring out the glow with these natural beauty helpers!
