This is old news, I know, but my excitement that Justin Timberlake is once again making music has yet to subside.

Winter must-haves

In the winter time I always fall into ruts both good and bad. The following are my three must-haves for this cold and terrible winter season. 

Always a good choice, Burt's Bees has saved my lips on countless occasions.

This is one of my favorite colors this season, it's Penny Talk from Essie. It's perfect for all the upcoming holidays, especially Presidents Day.

This little tub of Rosebud Salve is the best thing for winter. It completely eliminates dry spots of skin, including dry elbows.

A Spring in Your Step

Winter in Ohio isn't the loveliest time of the year, and it's hard to not wish for spring as soon as winter starts. Especially when TOMS announces their new Crochet Classics that will be released this spring.

Natural Crochet Women's Classics ($58)

It looks like some color crochets will be making their way into the TOMS line-up, along with the natural and black crochet TOMS that are available now. Sign up right here to be notified as soon as they become available!

Map out your Valentine's Day

I know I posted not that long ago about my friend Kelly's Etsy shop and the awesome, handmade envelopes she sells. I have to post about her shop again because I just saw her vintage map Valentine's Day cards and guys, they're freaking amazing.

There are two different sets - one set includes five cards and envelopes for $5 and the other has six cards and envelopes for $6. I'm recommending you place your order for these sooner rather than later - they're so cute, they might sell out!

Welcome back ...

It feels good to back here at Ohio is 4 Lovers ...
I'm sure that there are many things that happened over our break that we will share but today I have chosen to share maybe one of my best discoveries of December — boyfriend sweatpants from American Eagle.

Sure, this probably isn't something I should freak out about but I bought a pair of these during my Christmas shopping. I have never owned a pair of sweatpants so comfortable. Now, I promote these with a warning — they are reminiscent of long-johns, which makes me a laughingstock to my family.
I don't care though, they are so awesome.

Missing Gossip Girl?

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday! It was definitely a struggle getting back to the swing of things after my holiday break, and I was especially sad that I didn't have "Gossip Girl" to look forward to on Monday nights. I feel like I may not be alone in that sentiment, so here are a couple fun (and somewhat silly) things I've found recently to help curb your "Gossip Girl" cravings . . .
