Let’s not forget the cons of the winter months, shall we?

Put on your sweater, and your hair stands tall because of the winter months drying it out making it staticky, etc. Bah-humbug is what we’re looking for when the excitement of winter wonderland subsides and we’re surrounded by shoveled snow with yellow markings from folks walking their dogs.

Not everyone has waterproof winter boots, but everyone loves to have warm and toasty toes during the cold months. Here’s a clever way to keep your little piggies from running all the way home from the market in cold and soggy socks. Grab yourself two-gallon size plastic bags and place your feet in each one then wrap a rubber band around your ankles. Your feet will stay dry even when your boots are wet, but don’t take off your shoes in front of others unless you don’t mind explaining a few things, ha!
2. Foam Noodles to Dry Boots

I bet you thought you had put your summer pool toys away for a good few months, right? Wrong. Take out those pool noodles of yours because they make an ideal tool for drying your wet boots. Just cut the pool noodles into sections of three and insert them into the neck of the winter boots, so they stay nice and straight.
3. Warm-up Eyeliner
Ladies if you accidentally left your eyeliner in a place that gets cold quick then you’re left with a stiff tip that will hurt your eyes when trying to get prettied up for the day. Grab yourself a lighter and hover it over the eyeliner tip to help soften it up so that it applies a lot smoother. It will only take a few seconds.
