Favorite Finds: Winter Edition

One of my favorite things to read on other blogs is [wait for it] . . . the "favorite" list! Whether it's a list of favorite shops, favorite scents, or favorite t-shirts (American Apparel tri-blend tee, anyone?), I love that these lists offer a glimpse into a blogger's personal style.

I thought it might be fun to post a few of my favorite things on the blog. So, without further ado, here's a "lite" version of the favorite list: 3 things that are keeping me happy (and warm) during this blustery January in New York:

1. Wolford Tights

Wolford tights are the Cadillacs of winter hosiery. They're not cheap, but they're totally worth every penny. They're luxurious, well-made, and without them, your favorite dress will spend a long, dark winter in the back of your closet.

2. Kiehl's Whipped Creme de Corps
I have used Kiehl's Creme de Corps moisturizer for years, and I was a little skeptical when this whipped version hit the market. I am a skeptic no more. I may even like the whipped version better than the original. It smells great, it's rich without being heavy, and provides the perfect amount of winter weather protection.

3. iPod Touch

I have only recently discovered the real magic of the iPod touch. Sure, you can load tons of mp3's on it (I currently have 6 on mine). But what I really love about the iPod touch is that it can be transformed into an e-reader (mine is now a Kindle and a Nook) and a Netflix player -- for free!!! I've spent the past few weeks watching episodes of The Tudors and reading classics on my tiny little iPod. And yes, I realize that I'm probably the last person to appreciate all of the neat things that can be done with the iPod touch. But that doesn't make me any less thrilled about the amazing capabilities of this little machine.

[Note: This is not a sponsored post. I really do love these things.]
