Sick Day Essentials

Well I knew it. I am a frequent hand washer, water drinker, and expert sanitizer. However, nothing protects me from the evils of high school and over half of the population sniffling with the cold. I have the cold not. I feel so helpless and small. Its just a cold one might say. Yeah, I know, I never get sick like ever. #thestruggleisreal

When I go to sleep at night, I wear a giant night guard AND a retainer. Sometimes having these two giant contraptions in my mouth causes me to sleep with my mouth open. I felt a sore throat on Tuesday and thought nothing of it. However yesterday, I woke up at 3 am and almost suffocated because I could not breathe through my nose. So Wednesday was horrible, absolutely horrible. It was cold and cloudy and I was sick. I put together the laziest outfit of jeans, a big comfy shirt, and a big scarf. oh, not to mention the black and super warm peacoat. I drank about three bottles of water an downed about a whole bag of cough drops. To say the least, I survived. 

This is how I survived. 

And the Mountains Echoed // This is the book I am currently reading, I haven't really gotten that far into it but what from I have read, it is so amazing and very well written. I got home from school and immediately dove in. 

Smart Wool Socks // Amazing. My feet are always cold and I have just bought these socks recently. I sat by the fire and snuggled with these warmies and my book. 

Tea and Honey // What am amazing combination this is, especially on a super sore throat. And but of course, it's organic. #whatelse

HALLS BREEZERS // I LITERALLY SURVIVED ON THESE ALL DAY. THANK YOU HALLS COMPANY. Okay. Wow. But before school today I was dying because my throat was so freaking sore so I stopped at my local CVS. I hate the honey lemon kind so I was on the look out for another kind, I stumbled upon these and my throat has been happy with me ever since. Now if only these were candy, not cough drops. 

Pandora // I have mentioned before that Pandora is my favorite escape ever. I have found some new stations that I am totally crazy for. Yesterday, I listened to a lot of Lindsey Stirling Radio and French Cafe Radio. Both of these stations are easy listening and really made me relaxed and calm.

Sick at home attire? leggings. mens pullover. bun. socks. glasses. blankets. tea.

Hope you are doing very well. Thanksgiving is in a week!! Any special blog posts ideas? 

xoxo, Kira
