Baby, it’s cold outside; and while this is the title of a popular song, it’s also the cause of some really ashy elbows, cracked lips, heels and parched hair that could been prevented. Everyone knows looking and feeling dry isn’t cute, but the harsher the winds whip, the more likely it seems that you’ll wind up this way this winter. You might wind up ashy by accident, but you sure don’t have to stay that way with products like these on the market that keep you moisturized from head to toe–literally.
It’s mid October and cuffing season is in full swing. If you’ve suddenly found yourself booed up and know not of this cuffing season I speak of let us look to the urban dictionary which defines cuffing season as such :
the season in which everyone is getting coupled up usually around when the weather is beginning to change and it is getting cold outside.
Often women get the short end of cuffing season. Autumn ushers in a new season of boo loving, by Christmas you’re pretty hot and heavy but it’s still new so families and gifts aren’t really a priority and before you know it, it’s spring and you’re left high and dry.
I’ve put together a quick list of rules to help you enjoy cuffing season, if you so choose, without getting burned or scorned in the process by thinking you’ve hit the jackpot with Mr. Cuffington when in reality you’ve just found a place warmer for the colder months.
When I’m being overly dramatic, I like to lament over the fact that I was born in the wrong season. While I’m what you’d call a Fall baby (Libras stand up!), I’d much rather live in a place where I experience and enjoy Summer-like conditions year round. So deep is my passion for all things Summer, that I got into a little debate with my coworkers about the superior season. Arguing, among other things, that Summer is the truth because you can run out your house, wearing a cutesie sundress and not have to worry about bringing a jacket. It seems simple, but it’s a phenomena indicative of a larger carefree nature. It’s deep.
While I recognize that Fall doesn’t mean doom, it certainly represents the imminent approach of Winter. *Chills* With the exception of the birth of baby Jesus and the first snow, I loathe Winter. (And I know I’m not the only one– you’ve heard of S.A.D?!?– I rest my case.)
But I’m about optimism, so I’ve decided to make a list of the things I do enjoy about the Fall.
For the winter season, don’t let the chill in the air put a damper on your date nights. Cast a bit of romance on those mid-winter nights with cherished moments to last a lifetime. Reserving a spot could add more warmth in the winter mist as you embark upon something more intricate and special for the two of you. Don’t hesitate to mark the calendar (from November to January) for perfect date ideas such as retreating to a favorite log cabin or cozying in front the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa in hand. Just because its cold doesn’t mean your romantic days have to go kaput!
