Sick Day Essentials 

I've had the cold for about a week now and I think its almost done with me. I've been feeling a lot better now and I wanted to share some of my sick day essentials that helped me fight off my nasty cold. 

The first one is tea! I love the honey and lemon combo. Its slightly tart, slightly sweet and so so soothing. 

Chicken noodle soup, Chicken noodle soup with the soda on the side. I love the Lipton instant ones with extra pasta or maybe some potatoes.  So yummyy!!

Next up is cough drops! I always get the ones that taste like candy and not the ones that are so strong that they make you want to cry. But this weekend I picked up the Ricola Lemon Mint ones and I'm loving them. They're not super strong and still taste really good. 

Number Four, lip balm and face cream!  Keep yourself hydrated and moisturized when you're sick. You'll feel a whole lot better!

 Sweets, sweets, and more sweets! I know this one probably isn't good for you and you probably shouldn't do it. But doesn't a good pumpkin cupcake with maple cinnamon frosting make your soul feel better. (P.s. I got the recipe from this lovely blog and its amazing!) 

The last one is down time. And I mean lots and lots and LOTS of down time. My favorite down time activities are sleeping, reading, and watching YouTube. Recently I saw the trailer for the Best Of Me, so I decided to reread the book and can I just say, "Damn, Dawson".  

That's it for my sick day essentials and if you're sick I hope you feel way better soon!
