Turn Your Winter Blues Magenta

January 27, 2011

By Katrice

This week, the weather in Atlanta has been so dismal that it seems like winter will never come to an end. I miss the lush greenery and riding with my windows down. Ahhh ... I was born to live in a tropical climate. One day, perhaps. But, until then, I have my carefully curated list of cure-alls to stave off the winter doldrums. Try one or all of them, and tell me what you think!

{You're welcome.}

1. Keep your tootsies pampered. 
Of course, summertime is when most women flock to salons to pamper their feet, but it shouldn't be the only time. Keep the same schedule with your pedicurist that you have when it's warm or save a few bucks and devise your own at-home treatment, and you just may be surprised at how the sight of neatly primped toes lighten your mood. 

Kaliko Tailored Pea Coat, $99; Leather Ring Detail Buckle Satchel, $105; Missoni Crochet-knit Zigzag Scarf, $800; Beauty Is Life Lipstick, $28; Not Too Coy Strappy Boot, $111; Red Cocktail Ring, $8
2. Add a splash of color.

Sometimes, I get the urge to check into a hotel with an indoor pool and jacuzzi, and enjoy a few nights away from home {even if I am just a block away}. 

4. Give yourself or your home/work space a makeover.
It could be as simple as a new lip gloss or as elaborate as going from carpet to hardwood floors. Changing things up is one of my favorite pick me ups. #Love

5. When the days are long, we enjoy the outdoors. When they're short, why not enjoy what's happening indoors around your town? 
Commit to finding something to do to that stimulates your senses every Friday or Saturday. After a couple weeks, you won't even think of staying home. 

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater comes to The Fox Theatre in Atlanta Feb. 10-13, 2011
Tickets start at $20
