Winter Weapons

Ok, so I’m not sure about you but I feel like June 1st has totally snuck up on me when I wasn’t watching.

How is it pretty much halfway through the year already?!!

Apparently as of today, winter is officially upon us and right now as I type this I’ve got the fireplace cranking and I’m wearing Ugg boots.

When I first moved to New Zealand in the summer of 1995 from a little tropical island in Malaysia, I thought I was going to freeze to death. I kid you not, my brother and I were those weird foreign kids that looked like eskimos in the middle of summer.

Although I still don’t entirely love winter, and will always much prefer warm tropical climates, I have grown to appreciate the colder months.

Winter to me means flannel PJ’s, slow cooked meals, mulled wine, and most importantly, it’s when you’re unapologetically allowed to binge watch entire shows on Netflix! 🙂

But that also means cold and flu season is upon us, and I for one do not like to take any chances when it comes to protecting myself against all the gross germs lurking around.

Introducing my WINTER WEAPONS that I have been using for a few years now, and I swear by them. These things are amazing at warding off all sorts of winter nasties. You know the ones where the doctor tells you there’s nothing you can do but take it easy and stick it out? Well I beg to differ! I am not claiming to be a health expert but after years of research and trying things out I honestly believe that this is where mother nature kicks butt.

There are some amazing natural remedies out there that have scientific evidence to back up the claims, and I don’t know about you, but I’d way rather take something natural when and wherever possible.
