Icey Blue Watch for an Ice Slicked Winter Wonderland
Sun shining in, a perfect day for a photo shoot… Unfortunately it’s MINUS-A-MILLION and the trees have MOTHER F*CKEN HOARFROST ON THEM! But I have this brilliant idea that because the sun is shining it must be bearable… and I really want to do a quick outfit post. Well I couldn’t bear it long enough to grab a photo, not only because it was over -30°C with the wind chill, but because my coat was so damn warm I wasn’t taking it off for nobody!
The point, was to caption my new watch in a complimentary setting and, to that goal, I’d say my photographer and I accomplished that. The frost carpeted ground and piercing blue sky picked up the powder blue face of my new chronometer excellently. It also really shone bright against the green hue of my down filled jacket (thank god, because I refuse to part with it).
I don’t care that everyone was looking at me like I was crazy because I was just hanging out around campus on one of the coldest days of the year… it’s a tough job… but someone has to do it. So if you ever visit my glorious northern country in the winter months be prepared that when people say you have to dress for the cold or risk freezing… take note! It can get SO COLD that if you throw a pot of boiling water into the air it will turn to snow instantly.
Here is a video if you don’t believe me (and just as an aside… it was colder when we took the photos! BRRRRRRRRR!!!) :
Quick hair tip: In winter, to keep your hair from drying completely out be sure to wash it less frequently than normal. To keep it from looking like you just cooked a pack of bacon on your head, use spray-on dry shampoo to give your hair a freshly washed look and keep in your hair’s natural moisturizer. Day old hair is also a lot easier to style because of its thicker texture.
