Skiny Accessories to Battle the Winter Blues

Skiny Bodywear Accessories

I'm not sure what it is like on your end, but it has become really dark real fast over here. Though the temperatures are still pretty high, it is starting to look more like winter. And with the winter coming, we can also expect some winter blues. Now Skiny Bodywear has kept that in mind and gave me two pretty accessories to help battle those darn winter blues!  

You may remember Skiny Body from my post about how I spend most of my days: in comfortable lounge wear, yay thesis time. I received a sleeping mask with a kitty look (super cute!!!) that will go wonderfully with my grey lounge pants and vest, so if I ever need to take a nap during the day -because reading makes one tired quite easily- then I can now wear these matching sleeping mask! More realistically (I avoid daytime naps) would be me wearing it in the evening when my boyfriend wants to do some bedtime reading and the lights are still on. We also have curtains that do let some daylight through, so if I want to avoid all light and wake up feeling more refreshed, then this sleeping mask will be my new go-to accessory! 


Surely sleeping well is one of the most important things to battling the winter blues -and just feeling good in general- so let's hope my sleeping mask will help! Besides sleeping well, one needs to be able to focus during the day and feel energized when a good night's rest doesn't do the trick completely. This is where a cool and sleek coffee mug for on the go comes in! This pretty black travel mug is not only cool because it has cute writing on it ("Life Happens, Coffee Helps"), but also because it has an isolation mug that will ensure your hot drink stays at the right temperature for a longer period than a regular travel mug would! To get access to your beverage you need to slide open the opening at the top, so your drink will not spill out easily. I'm pretty much loving this travel mug! 


With a little help at night and a bit of help during the day I think I am making a great start with my battle against the winter blues! The cute kitty sleeping mask is part of the Sleep & Dream collection, comes in one size and costs €12,99. I also noticed that Skiny Accessories offers really pretty makeup bags! Not sure how that will help me battle my winter blues though, ha! Do you have any sleep/day-time regimens that you will be implementing to stay fit and energized during the winter? How do you battle the winter blues?

  1. I desperately need a new sleeping mask. My husband prefers to have the blinds open, claiming he feels imprisoned otherwise, and I wake at the smallest bit of light. Right now I use one from a travel set, but it is too old and I loose it throughout the night...

  2. Zo'n slaapmasker klinkt eigenlijk best handig, alleen moet ik eerlijk toegeven dat ik thuis nooit wakker blijf van het licht als ik moe ben; ik blijf meestal alleen wakker als ik nog te actief/onrustig ben. Voor als we uit logeren gaan lijkt mij het wel echt een uitkomst, omdat ik dan sowieso al moeilijker slaap.

    1. Oh, ik vind licht best irritant! En eentje om mee te hebben voor op reis is altijd wel fijn :) ik heb ook nog een andere die ik gebruik voor op reis met de tekst "I'm not here". Heel leuk in de vliegtuig bijvoorbeeld :P
