Gone are those days when I wished for snow as a kid. Now when it snows, I pray that it doesn't snow much because I still have to chug through the snow to get somewhere. When I trudge home in the cold, I sometimes think if only I had another article of clothing on. There are a few items that you might consider investing in to stay warm to beat those (literal) winter blues!

1. Warm Lined Pants from UNIQLO

These were half-price in late January (forgive me if there are any other times during the year that they are on sale because I haven't noted them) but are low stock again because they are awesome! Imagine walking around with comforting soft fleece around your leg and a pair of pants that you can wear with any outfit. Perhaps I'm incredibly biased towards inner fleece lined products, but they sure make the cold weather seem less daunting!

2. Infared Wooden Foot Sauna from Wellspring Products, Inc.

People tend to have poor circulation at the extremities, so our feet and hands feel cold easily. Luckily, you can buy a sauna to bake your feet in! It takes five minutes to heat up, and this therapy is soothing for feet that can't be warmed by socks and/or feet that have been freezing from shoveling the outdoors.

3. Brondell L60-EW LumaWarm Heated Nightlight Elongated Toilet Seat

This one's more of a no-brainer because who wouldn't want a warm toasty seat to sit on first thing in the morning or in the middle of the night? There's a toilet bowl light and also three different heated temperature settings for you to use to your heart's content.

4. Ember Mug

This smart ceramic mug will keep your hot beverage nice and warm wherever you are. It's available in a cup version as well as a travel mug. You can control the temperature by simply rotating its bottom portion. The travel mug was also the winner of the 2017 IDSA IDEA Industrial Design Awards, giving credit to its beautifully sleek and functional design.

5. Smart Parka 1.0 from North Aware

If all that isn't enough for you, go ahead and order this new product! With built-in gloves, tech pockets, scarf, hat pouch, and the ability for extension, it gives the indecisive buyer all the features one could possibly ask for in a coat. This garnered 3.5 million dollars of support on Kickstarter, so many can vouch for its insulation reputation.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive.

These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.
