For those of us who are still working from home, isn't it glorious to wake up to thunder and lightning in the comfort of your duvet? Amidst the relentless heavy rain this morning, I woke up with a smile on my face to cool temperature, lazed in my bed for a while and still managed to fire up the computer in time for work.
But for those who are required to brave the rain to get to the office, not so much. Is it me or have you also noticed that when it rains, it pours? According to a report by the NEA, the cold rainy weather is here to stay, at least until the end of the month. Doesn't it feel like Mother Nature is undergoing a cleansing of sorts, helping us wash away the old and in with the new.
Do I hear cheers and claps for those of you who are so ready to break out your down jackets reserved for travel that have been relegated to the depths of your cupboards? Yes, it's finally time to put them to good use again, for now.

No more wet feet
One of my pet peeves about the rain, even as a self-confessed pluviophile, is wet feet. These durable waterproof, work-approved boots will keep the feet dry and toasty, and look put together. Now, you can confidently step on any water puddles, and still stay dry; I kid you not!
Umbrellas may not offer adequate coverage for the recent persistent rain. Add on a lightweight waterproof jacket to brave through the weather wherever you go. Get it; you will need it.
Keep all your important documents and laptop dry and safe from the rain with this trusty backpack and still look good for work and play. You never have to be at the mercy of Mother Nature again.
Keep your make-up intact, always
If you, have found yourself in embarrassing situations where the make-up streaked, you will know why these water-resistant beauty items are essential to any lady's beauty arsenal.
