Snowpocalypse 2016

It was bound to happen: New York City would get hit with some major snow.

And after experiencing some 70 degree weather during the Christmas weekend, Mother Nature was showing zero mercy on us.

According to reports, the recent snowstorm we had this weekend, or what we’re lovingly referring to as Snowpocalypse 2016, was the second largest one in New York City history. Central Park was hit with 26.8″ of snow.

What did I do? Stay home, of course.

Despite being born and raised in New York City, I’m very anti-cold weather. I loathe snow and count the minutes until we’re hit with the sweltering summer season again. To prepare for the dreaded weekend, I headed to Trader Joe’s to stock up on food – only to experience pure mayhem. You would think the world was coming to an end and we only had one final chance to savor mandarin orange chicken again.

There goes the neighborhood.

But this weekend, I relaxed in my cozy, warm apartment. I savored my day off making great use of my Netflix account. Of course, I ultimately did step outside to see what the weather was like, wearing just PJs and my father’s old Calvin Klein shirt (which you cannot see here for obvious reasons).

Yes, I was wearing my Batman pants and no eyeliner was in sight, but you best believe I wasn’t going to leave the house without a swipe of red lipstick. If I wear absolutely nothing on my face, I brighten it up and keep things fresh with my signature color: Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red ($14).

This bold red color is not for the faint of heart. It won’t budge and will stay on your pout for hours on end. As a matter of fact, it won’t even come off unless you slather your lips with coconut or argan oil. However, I believe it’s the brightest red shade on the market and I always carry a tube wherever I go.

You just never know when you’re going to need a signature red lip. Like exploring a snowstorm before midnight.
