1. Self-Expression With The Perfect Winter Nails
Embracing your winter aesthetic starts with self-expression. Feeling the freedom to outwardly show your inner emotions is critical for both creating a personal style and nourishing your mental health.
So let's start with an easy way to show off your unique fashion and winter aesthetic. New winter nails let you express your individual style while staying bundled up against the cold!
Nail Stamping Gives You The Creative Freedom To Be Yourself
Going to the nail salon is so impractical during the winter. It's cold, and salons are overrated anyway.
Plus, authentic self-expression starts in the comfort of your own cozy bedroom!
That's why here at Maniology, we created our iconic nail stamping subscription kits. So you can get an artistic masterpiece on your nails in just five easy steps, even if you're not an artist.
In the winter months, the one thing you can always rely on to express your style is your nails. And we want to empower you to embrace your unique style.
Maniology's nail stamping isn't just about a new manicure. It's about self-expression and freedom!
Make it your own!
2. Have An At-Home Spa Day
Winter is about staying inside and enjoying cozy vibes. There's nothing as satisfying as enjoying hot cocoa indoors while snow falls gently outside (if it snows where you are!)
Take your indoor comfort to a new level with an at-home spa day. But, of course, the winter aesthetic isn't complete without some genuine self-care, anyway!
Start with a warm bubble bath, and end with a pampering, hydrating face mask. Whatever your body loves the most, treat yourself to it.
You deserve it!
3. Change Your Home Decor (Don't Forget Twinkle Lights!)
We probably don't even need to tell you this one. But the secret to the perfect winter aesthetic is string lights!
Twinkle or string lights are the best way to bring festive cheer into your home. Even if you don't decorate the exterior of your house for the holidays, you can't go wrong with a set of string lights around your living room.
Add some extra decor like wreaths, scented pinecones, and fuzzy blankets to complete the look!
4. Take A Winter Walk
We know we just said winter is about staying inside. But embracing the seasonal aesthetic calls for more than that!
When weather permits, take a walk through local parks to soak in the festive spirit. Plus, taking simple walks outdoors has incredible and numerous health benefits that extend past your physical well-being.
Taking frequent walks outdoors, even for just 30 minutes a day, greatly improves your mental health and increases your cardiovascular fitness. Plus, you can check out the Christmas decorations of those around you!
5. Bake Some Delicious Holiday Cookies
An iconic part of the winter aesthetic is hot cocoa and lattes. But no warm beverage is complete without a bakery item to go with it!
Holiday cookies are perfect during the colder months and are so heartwarming to bake. Get together with family or friends and enjoy the company of those you care about.
Here are some classic recipes to get you started.
6. Enjoy A Hot Latte By The Fire
The winter aesthetic is comprised of things like fresh, powdery snow and holiday decor. But warm beverages are an integral part of the winter aesthetic that you can't ignore.
Visit a local coffee shop or become a barista at home. Either way, it's time to enjoy a delicious latte or some classic hot cocoa.
Sip your homemade latte next to the fireplace for some immaculate vibes!
(If you don't have a fireplace, we have a little hack for you. Turn on a fireplace video on your TV for a virtual fireplace!)
7. Put Together A New, Cozy Outfit
For the perfect winter aesthetic, you need to explore your personal style. As the seasons change, our wardrobe needs to adapt, so it's time to find a new outfit!
Start by finding your seasonal color palette, then design an outfit with colors that best bring out your natural beauty. Finally, make sure to stay warm!
Here are a few tips to help you style the perfect fit:
- Wear plenty of layers
- Long coats are key
- Tight-fitting clothes help fight wind chill
- Avoid cotton, and wear wool
- Use scarves, gloves, and hats
- Make sure your shoes have enough tread
Whichever way you choose to design your look is up to you. Just make sure to stay warm!
