That time of year...


Well, folks, it's that time of year again. Cold & flu season is upon us and I got hit hard this past week. Here are my tips to kick it, QUICK and get back to shopping and eating cookies from the break room.

1. I've posted about Avibon before (and so has Gwyneth), but it really is tops for dry skin. Especially the real gnarly patches up under your nose.

2. A good DVD is essential to beating a cold. Preferably something you've seen before, so you can doze off when the meds start kicking in and not worry about missing the plot. This is one of my favorites.

3. These. Tissues. Saved. My. Life.

4. I basically live in these J.Crew sweats on weekends when I'm well, but they really feel good when you're nursing a cold.

5. I can't begin to explain the power in this little spray bottle. It's like a vicks smoothie in really sleek old-timey packaging. I spray it on my pillow before bed, or in a steamy shower. Experience the wonder yourself and buy it here!

6. Let's be honest. Sometimes when you have a cold, you have to go out on the town. And there's no better drink to sip when you're on the mend, than a HOT TODDY! I've convinced myself that the alcohol kills the bacteria in your body (old wive's tale? don't care.) and the lemon and honey soothe your throat. There's no way you can go wrong with this thing. Here's a great recipe.

Get well soon!
