As silly as it sounds, January in California means real winter. There is rain predicted in the forecast for 2 weeks straight and it finally feels cold. We’ve been in a severe drought so while part of me wants to miss the sunshine, I have to say I’m welcoming all of this water with arms wide open. Since this means I’m living in my warm sweaters, I’m taking some time today to share what I look for when buying, and how I take care of my sweaters.

Continuing the tradition from last year, I thought it would be fun to share your favorite blog posts from 2016. It looks like packing lists are still pretty popular, with a few other types sprinkled in as well. I feel like I finally figured out a good routine, but am always striving to evolve and change the blog, just as I do in my personal life.

Last year was one with a lot of growth and the continued evolution of Hej Doll. I’m starting to learn better about what creating content for this newly rebranded blog means. I have been aiming to stay true to myself and Hej Doll while still allowing my blog to be profitable (which pays the bills, hi!). This has allowed me to be able to create lots of other types of content for you that isn’t as easily sponsored, it’s always a balance!

That said, is there anything special you’d love to see on Hej Doll in 2017? I’d love to hear your input.

With Winter travel at it’s peak around the holidays, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ll pack for some upcoming cold-weather trips we have (hint: It’s Paris!). I’ve already shared a Summer and Fall packing list, so today I’m sharing a Winter packing list for Paris. Some of these items I have and love already, others are on my wishlist, and the rest I’ve just discovered and fell in love with immediately. I feel as though even though there is only 20 items here, there are plenty of outfit options for every type of atmosphere or outing.
