All Bundled Up for Winter with Zero Femininity? How to Be Amazing When You Take It Off All Bundled Up for Winter with Zero Femininity? How to Be Amazing When You Take It Off
GINZA SIX EDITORS Vol.92
"It looks like a 'warm winter' this year." I was so cold that I was relieved to hear such a rumor that I had heard since autumn. But. Isn't it getting colder and colder recently as we go to the end of the year? That's why, above all, I spend my time with the coordination that puts the first priority on "cold protection", and I rush into the annual "expansion" season as soon as possible. In this season, the overall silhouette is always "carry" because various things are worn by pursuing excessive warmth. Naturally, there is no endless "female", and when you go to work in the morning, you often see your movements in the mirror in front of the entrance, and your motivation to go out often drops. In such a case, always chanting secretly in your heart is the word "I look like this, I'm sorry if I take off!" The point is, "In fact, if you take off this" carry ", Fif…I hold something full of femininity.…It is a slightly uncomfortable self-minded control operation that makes you think yourself and makes you feel positive, but the basis is that you say, "I actually wear wonderful lace underwear today." Or "In fact, this morning I was immersed in a bath of a trotoro bath that boasts high moisturizing power."…I'm sorry. That's why the first New Year of Reiwa is right there. I went to GINZA SIX to welcome the new year as a woman in the real world, "I'm really crazy if I take off."
For example, if a woman suddenly passes by a subway platform, a woman who rides an elevator, a woman who accidentally meets at a cafe, etc., accidentally gives off a good scent of goods, `` Oh, this woman, I'm sure I'm not just a person. " Regardless of the actual appearance and fashion, it's like a feeling that the wonderfulness and feminineness of the "raw" part clearly emerges so that you can't see such a thing. The power of fragrance is so great. First of all, the first mission is to use the power of aroma to stand up at the moment you take off the heavy coat to remove the "femininity" of the woman, and to increase the "smooth feeling when you take off". Set. Chanel, who has produced a number of famous incense in the world, should always find a scent with "magic power" that brings out the feminineness of me, and immediately go to B1F's "CHANEL FRAGRANCE & BEAUTY". Just passing through the gorgeous Christmas display at the front of the store, the motivation to clear the first mission has already increased.
"Chanel N ° 19" dedicated to Omage on August 19, 1883, the birthday of Gabrielshall, "Chanel N ° 5", which was released in 1921 and is also a synonym for Chanel fragrance, as well as "Chanell N ° 5", which is popular for all generations "Chance" and "Kokomadomo Azel" all the familiar fragrances are satisfied in the store. By trying various scents by various people, even if many kinds of scents are mixed in this way, there is no fight at all, and on the contrary, you can enjoy the feast of scent that can only be tasted there at that moment is the true top of the streak of Meika. It is.
And this boutique also includes the fragrance collection "Rezex Cruzi Footshirene", which is only available at 15 limited stores in Japan. This special collection is based on the creation and elegance of Madmo Azel Chanel of the times in each scent, and the essence of the scent by successive dedicated incense masters who have worked on incense has been inherited. It is a feeling that among these 17 species that did not allow any compromise and made, there is one of the fate to bring out my "femininity" buried in the "carriage"!
However, it is quite difficult to select the scent that comes to you from among the many scents.…I'm sorry. While thinking, I was hitting the wet from one end to the nose for the time being, and the heavenly voice said, "What kind of scent do you like?" There is a dedicated fragrance specialist in this boutique, and this is from the person's taste, atmosphere, image of wanting to be, etc.! They will help you select one. Thank you!
That's why I finally chose this "BOY" (the second 200ml 46,000 yen * + tax's "BOY" (the second from the right in the photo, 200ml 46,000 yen *) This scent bearing the nickname of Arthur Kapel, a legendary lover who continued to love Madmo Azel Chanel throughout his life, gives a masculine nuance to the woman's skin and mixes with the other person's scent when embracing someone important. A special "fragrance of love" that shows a new face again. If you look closely, the distance between the CHANEL logo and the BOY logo is closer than other fragrances of the collection, and the design of the bottle shows how deep the love of Madmo Azel Chanel for BOY was. I'm convinced that this trivial anecdote I've heard this time, and that this "fragrance of joy loved and loved" will definitely raise my "slim of life".
With "BOY" with a beautiful ribbon on my hand, before going to the next mission, I was caught by a lip vending machine that I was worried about every time I passed in front of the boutique. This playfulness of putting high-quality cosmetics into "vending machine" like this! My favorite! But unfortunately, the color you wanted was sold out, so please look forward to it again.
By the way, wear "fragrance of joy loved and loved" and feel like "always take off!" At a speed of "(← but no one wants it)", jump on an escalator and go to EYESTYLE, an eyeglass Shops "EYESTYLE" on the 5th floor. This stylish Shops, which has a stylish concept based on the concept of "adult hobby room in the 70's", has 500 to 600 kinds of glasses collected from Japan and abroad. So, why did you come here? Yes, my second mission this time is to select glasses that look good. This is because an acquaintance who professes that women wearing glasses loves, said before, "Only wearing glasses that look good, especially adult women become more colored by 60% extra. Because the frame effect of the glasses makes the black eyes look very beautiful. And when I look at the impressive eyes, I want to unintentionally remove the glasses and see the eyes as they are, and when I remove them, the gestures are even more colored.…"I remember my distant eyes and said…I'm sorry. Certainly, "eyeglass beauty" is intellectual but somewhere moist, and it may be "smooth if you take off". Let's have that idea!
To tell the truth, several years ago, due to the start of alle (← old eyes), the frequency of wearing glasses in daily life has been increasing, but it is functioning first anyway! So I don't have the experience of choosing glasses that suit my face. I was a little nervous about what to do, but there was a sign of someone behind me.…I'm sorry. When I turn around, it's awkward!
The identity of this handsome is, of course, the staff of this shop, Mr. Tani. As expected, he looks like a staff member of a discerning eyeglass Shops's unique eyeglasses are dressed up and cool! Under the advice of Mr. Tani, I try glasses of various shapes and materials. Finally, these three points were left as candidates. From above, SAINT LAURENT SL26405 Front: Plastic material tenple: Metal material (40,000 yen), OLIVER PEOPLES STILES MSYC Front: Plastic material tenple: Metal material (33,000 yen), GUCCI GG0611OK 01 Front: Metal material Tenple: Plastic material (47,000 yen).
As expected, there is only an eye-catching select, all of which are hard to beat, and compare many times. Shimai is the mismanagement of asking Mr. Tani in a tone, such as "Which one looks like a" moist eyeglass beauty "wind?" I would like to take this opportunity to apologize. Sorry.
In the end, I got stuck with a new black classic gucci. I was lost to the end with the classic type of gray juice, but in addition to Mr. Tani, Mr. Otsuka, the store manager, said, `` If the type with a large black eye like a customer is a thin black frame, the casual intellectual unique to an adult woman I think you can get the color. " It is a policy that this shop adjusts very finely and finely so that the selected glasses can be put on the most wonderfully. By the way, according to Otsuka, when wearing glasses, when the lower eyelids come to the center of the frame, they seem to be the most feminine and attractive, and of course adjust accordingly.
If you put on a temporary adjustment, it's certainly good! Good for a loach! Until now, it was often the case that the people of Momoya's commercials did not reach the point, but rather, they felt like they were just one step before the nose glasses, so at first it was eh! Can I raise this up? I thought, but it is true that the impression of the black eyes stands out, and the feeling that the color moist feeling comes out. After all, I don't pretend to be professional advice! In this way, I was satisfied with the fact that I got the "moist beauty glasses" and further improved the "great feeling when I took off", and headed for the next mission.
With the effect of the scent and glasses, the meter of "slim when you take off" is steadily approaching full, and the third mission is finally "improving the texture of the actual skin". In addition to the cold and dry weather, the beauty editor said, "It's a season that doesn't come out anyway, it's a season that doesn't come out." To give moisture and gloss to the "Schovoy" body, and to transform it into a well-known "smoothy skin with suction" in BNSFRI.
Speaking of crans, since the opening of the aesthetic salon "Instance Clarance" in Paris in 1954, all-handed methods "Crans Touch" and "Plant-derived components" have been used to polish the skin and mind of women around the world. A long-established beauty salon. Even if you don't like it, expectations for a "absorbed body" that can be removed at any time will increase. The treatment curriculum started with counseling by veteran Naito of the therapist calendar 13 years. When I saw Mr. Naito's gentle and soft smile listening to the story while looking at this eyes, I didn't think, "Because of the severe drying of the skin, when I went to bed to sleep at night, the shin of my feet became severe. As a result of scratching and scratching, I was able to scratch the wound.…I followed the embarrassing confession, but Mr. Naito smiled and said, "Please leave it." Yes! I'll leave everything to you!
In order to guide my dry skin to the target "absorbed body", Mr. Naito selected the "body silhouette" that gives moisture and tension to the skin with hand treatment using plenty of vegetable oil. The menu is to add "Body Renew" (11,000 yen for 30 minutes), which removes dry and hardened horny layers, to the "body silhouette" (17,000 yen for 60 minutes). Now, the treatment starts with a scrub that gently removes dry and thick horny layers. Starting from the back, removing horny layers from the whole body to the legs, stomach, decollete, then taking a shower time and going to oil massage. Thanks to horny layer care, my body is absorbed by oil to make it more interesting. It's already, Mr. Naito also grinds, "Oil, no matter how much." It's just a level to do. Honestly, in the second half, I do not remember what I did with a deep sleep in the second half, with the comfort of Mr. Naito's hand touch like an example of "I feel like exquisite power!" However, the feeling of snuggling with the hands of the thighs that I touched immediately after waking up was exactly what I was looking for. Of course, my whole body felt like this "putter" and touched my body on my own. Thus Mission 3 is perfect.
By the way, the items used in this treatment are from the right: "Smooding Body Club" (200g 5,500 yen), "Body Oil" Tonic "" (100ml 7,400 yen), "Extra Farming Body Cream N" (200g 8,500 yen). You can also buy a crans boutique on the B1F. Although it is not as good as the therapist's technique, if you use home care using carefully selected plant components, you may be able to continue this "sticky feeling"!
By the way, the last mission of the three missions so far is to get a "great feeling when you take off" and "a really absorbed skin even if you really take off". Care from the inside of the body is also essential to keep the "smooth feeling" of the various things obtained through today's GINZA SIX visit as long as possible. Look, as you get older, your physical condition is remarkably good and bad, which leads to your skin condition. Due to the physical exhaustion caused by the last work of the end of the year, which is expected in the future, many of the "sugosa" that have been gathered together will be the original tree Ami, so you can not cry when it comes to it! Here, you have to take a lot of "fermented foods" that can be expected to improve immunity and antioxidant effect, and avoid such catastrophe! That's why we carefully selected foods that focus on "fermentation" from Niigata and Uonuma and collected them together, and went to "Ginza SENNENKOUJIYA.
At the cooking teacher's house I heard last month, I was feasted on homemade amazake, which was made by fermenting raw koji with a rice cooker, but it was very delicious, and after receiving it, my body I felt somewhat lighter. I want to make this myself and make it a "vital source" every day! Do you have raw koji? There was a place where I was so excited. A pile! Here, it is a specialty raw koji made from sake brewing at Mt. Hakkai, famous for sake. In addition to amazake, it can be used to make salt koji, soy sauce koji, and miso.
By the way, put the raw koji you want in the shopping basket and turn around to the cash register. Seasonings such as original sauce and soy sauce using koji are calling me side by side.…I'm sorry. But there are too many things to worry about, and I don't know which one to take back.…I'm sorry.
That's why I decided to specialize in what I was worried about. From the right, "Koji no soy sauce" (200ml 600 yen), "Kojipon vinegar white sesame" (200ml 600 yen), "Kakedashi Kojire" (200ml 600 yen). It's a gentle taste without corners, so it's probably because of the "maromi" caused by the power of the koji, or it's going to be very good as it is!
Then, in addition to raw koji, purchase one soy sauce and sauce, and finish shopping for inner care. Recently, I was busy and skipped self-catering, but I got an excellent fermented seasoning, and even if it was cold and wet this winter, I decided to do my body detox for me to be `` smooth if I take off '' I was on my way home with a positive feeling, whether to resume from today.

It’s going to be a warm winter, apparently. I’ve been hearing this since autumn. Since I’m extremely sensitive to cold, I’m breathing a huge sigh of relief. And yet, it’s gotten awfully cold awfully fast recently, as the year’s end is drawing near. Every year, I’ve taken to bundling up early, with a single-minded focus on staving off the cold. As the cold sinks in, I initiate a fevered pursuit of warmth, wearing layer upon insulating layer. The end result, unfortunately, is a rather dowdy silhouette. My feminine quotient nosedives to zero. In the morning, when I look in the mirror before stepping out for work, I see dowdy in motion, and my motivation to go out frequently takes a hit. But I’ll always silently recite the following words: “I may look like this, yes, but when I take it off, I’m amazing!” In other words, when I slough off this dowdiness, you’ll see an abundant femininity hiding beneath. At least that’s what I blatantly kid myself into believing, to boost my confidence and mood—a form of self-encouragement. Obviously, it’s quite not as convincing as wearing some exquisite lace lingerie or having a hot highly moisturizing bath one morning. And so, with the first New Year of the new Reiwa era just around the corner, I decide to greet the new year as a woman who is truly convinced to be ‘amazing when she takes it off’, and head off to GINZA SIX.
Here’s an example: When you share an elevator with or pass a woman on the subway platform or happen to sit next to a woman at a café who, by chance, is perfumed in the most refined fragrance imaginable, don’t you reflexively think: This is no ordinary woman? No matter the person’s figure or fashion—aspects you may not even notice—there’s a clear and powerful sense of the wonderful corporeal femininity. Fragrance has enormous power. So, as my first mission, I decide to reinforce this sense, this sense of an amazing revelation of veiled femininity, through the power of perfume wafting gently into the air the moment I shed my heavy coat. Chanel produces a number of the world’s most famous perfumes. Undoubtedly they make a magic fragrance capable of accentuating the femininity I’m hiding within. Without further ado, I head to Chanel Fragrance & Beauty on the first belowground floor.
I make my way through the gorgeous Christmas display at the front of the store and, instantly, my motivation for my first mission goes through the roof. The store has all the Chanel fragrances we know and love, including Chanel N°19, an homage to Gabrielle Chanel’s birth date—August 19, 1883—and, of course, the iconic Chanel N°5, available since 1921, along with Chance and Coco Mademoiselle, which are popular with all generations. The store is full of spellbinding aromas. Even with various people trying on various perfumes and any number of fragrances swirling and intermingling, one encounters no bickering or conflict among scents. In effect, it’s an opportunity to enjoy a complex aroma that can be experienced only in that moment, the true test of a famous perfumery.
The boutique here at GINZA SIX also carries the fragrance collection, Les Exclusifs de Chanel, something sold by just 15 stores in Japan. Each fragrance in the collection embodies the creativity and elegance of Mademoiselle Chanel at different phases of her career. Each carries on the essence of scents developed by successive generations of the company’s perfumers. It’s a distinctive collection. Of these 17 fragrances, all made without compromise, I have a premonition one is meant for me, the one that will draw out the femininity cloaked within dowdy me.
But with such an array of choices, making the ideal choice suddenly feels something beyond mere mortals. As I’m thinking this, holding a blotter to my nose, I hear a voice from the blue: “What scents do you like?” What a relief! The boutique is attended by fragrance specialists, who help you choose the perfect perfume based on your preferences, hopes, and general disposition.
Ultimately, with their help, I chose BOY (photo, second from right, 200 ml, 46,000 yen; all prices listed before tax). The fragrance is named after Arthur “Boy” Capel, the legendary lover of Mademoiselle Chanel, the love of her life. The scent adds a masculine nuance to a woman’s skin; when she embraces a special person in her life, it mingles with the other’s scent and unveils another side of itself. Truly, it’s a distinctive fragrance of love. When I look closely, I see that the CHANEL logo and BOY logo are positioned closer to each other on the label than for the rest of the collection, expressing, no doubt, Mademoiselle Chanel’s love for Boy. I’m completely taken by this covert consideration and convinced a fragrance inspired by the joy of loving and being loved will boost the amazing femininity of my own living flesh.
I take in hand Boy, with a lovely ribbon around it. Before moving on to my next mission, I stop at the lipstick vending machine, which catches my eye every time I walk by. I love the whimsy of putting high-end cosmetics in a vending machine! But the color I want is sold out. I’ll just have to look forward to it the next time.
I put on this fragrance, inspired by the joy of loving and being loved, and feel empowered now to disclose myself, or to lie in wait, as I please. This is my mood as I board the elevator and head to EYESTYLE, an eyewear boutique on the fifth floor. Designed to resemble an “adult’s hobby room from the 1970s,” the stylishly appointed shop offers 500 or 600 types of eyewear from makers in Japan and abroad. Now, let me tell you why I’m here: My second mission is to choose some eyewear that looks good on me. I have a male friend who’s publicly proclaimed he loves women in glasses. “When a woman wears a pair of glasses that look good on her,” he says, “especially an adult woman, her sexiness quotient goes up 60%. It’s because the eyewear frames her black eyes and makes them look incredibly beautiful. When I see such striking eyes, I’m driven to see her eyes without her glasses. And when she reaches to take them off, she becomes sexier still…” I remember him saying all this with a distant look in his eyes. And it’s true, beautiful women in glasses have an intellectual look, but there’s an allure, too. It’s there, the “When I take it off, I’m amazing” thing. With this idea, I’m on board; let’s try some on.
For the past several years, I’ve started to have a bit of trouble making out what I’m reading. As I’d needed glasses more and more frequently just for day-to-day stuff, I decided it’s the function that matters. In brief, I’m short on experience choosing glasses that really fit my face. What to do, what to do? I’m getting flustered when behind me I feel someone’s presence; I turn around, and, oh my, a good-looking guy!
The good-looking guy here is, of course, one of the shop staff. His name is Tani-san. He ticks all the boxes for a sales attendant at an exclusive eyewear store. He wears metal-framed glasses with a lot of personality and looks very good, yet nonchalant wearing them. Listening to Tani-san’s advice, I try on glasses in various shapes and materials. Ultimately I settle on three finalists. From the top: SAINT LAURENT SL264 005 (plastic frame front, metal temples; 40,000 yen); OLIVER PEOPLES STILES MSYC (plastic frame front, metal temples; 33,000 yen); GUCCI GG0611OK 001 (metal frame front, plastic temples; 47,000 yen).
Tani-san, with his expert eye, has made such good choices I don’t know which to choose. I try on each several times. Finally, I get carried away and ask: “Which ones make me look most beautiful and alluring?” This leaves him at a loss for words. I take this opportunity to apologize to him for this. Sorry, Tani-san!
I ended up settling on the new version of the classic black Guccis. I went back and forth with the classic greige version, but store manager Otsuka-san joined in. “When people with large, black eyes like you wear thin, black frames, it brings out the subtle intellectualism and sexiness adult women have.” And, with that, my mind is made up. The store here has a policy of adjusting the eyewear you choose with extreme care to make them look their very best on you. Today, too, they make repeated painstaking adjustments to my glasses. Incidentally, according to Otsuka-san, eyeglasses are most feminine and alluring when your lower eyelids come to the middle part of the frame. So, of course, I have them adjusted to those exact specifications.
After the initial adjustments, I put my glasses on. Yes, they’re great! I always wear my glasses somewhat forward on my nose—maybe not quite falling off my nose, like the man in the Momoya commercial, but forward. So I was surprised: should they really ride this high? Almost immediately, then, I realize wearing them this way does in fact accentuate my black eyes, and I feel more alluring and sexy, as well. You have to hand it to the pros. Their advice is spot on. I’ve acquired the eyewear of a beautiful, alluring woman and feel I’ve taken yet another step forward in my quest to be amazing unveiled. On to my next mission!
With perfume and eyewear, I’m well on my way to feeling amazing when I take it off. My third mission, finally, is to improve the actual feel of my skin. Due to the cold, dry air and because I think—completely unbecoming of a beauty editor—“Well, since you don’t exactly show much skin in winter anyway, what does it matter?” I neglect daily care. My shabby frame is dry, coarse, and bumpy. I need to transform this into top-flight, supple, moisturized skin, so I head to Clarins Skin Spa on the first belowground floor.
Clarins is a day spa of long standing, first established with the opening of Institut Clarins in Paris in 1954. It relies on a proprietary massage method, called Clarins Touch, applied entirely by the masseuse’s hands, along with plant-derived ingredients, to burnish the skin and spirits of women the world over. My hopes are high now for a body that’s moist and supple that will allow me to present myself, entirely as I am, at any time. The treatment course begins with counseling from Naito-san, a veteran beauty therapist of 13 years. Naito-san hears me out while peering into my eyes. Her warm, gentle smile prompts me to confess, all of a sudden: “When I crawl into bed at night, maybe because my skin is so dry, my shins get extremely itchy. I scratch and scratch. It leaves marks.” Blurting this out leaves me feeling embarrassed, but Naito-san merely smiles. “Leave it to me,” she says. Yes! Perfect! I’ll leave it all up to you.
To transform skin so dry it itches into a suitably moist and supple feminine envelope, Naito-san chooses a menu of Body Silhouette (60 minutes, 17,000 yen), a massage treatment that relies on ample plant-based oils to moisturize and firm the skin, with the added option of Body Renew (30 minutes, 11,000 yen), which thoroughly removes dried and hardened keratin. The treatment begins with a scrub to gently remove dry horny keratin. It removes keratin from every part of my body, from my back to my legs, abdomen, and décolleté. This is followed by a shower, after which my oil massage begins. Thanks to the keratin therapy, my body swiftly absorbs the oil—quite interesting! Naito-san says, with what appears to be wry smile, “Now you’re set to soak up all the oil you need.” Not too strong, not too weak, just the right amount of pressure from the hands—this is just how it should feel, I think. The touch of Naito-san’s hands feels so good, I doze off in the second half; I don’t really remember it, but when I wake up and touch the skin around my thighs, it seems to fit perfectly into my hands—truly the ultimate moist suppleness I was after. Of course, my entire body had this firm, supple feel. Without thinking, I found myself touching my skin here and there. Mission 3 ends in success.
Incidentally, the products used in my treatment are, from right, Exfoliating Body Scrub For Smooth Skin (200 g, 5,500 yen); Tonic Treatment Oil (100 ml, 7,400 yen); and Extra-Firming Body Cream (200 g, 8,500 yen). All the products can be purchased at the Clarins boutique, also on the first belowground floor. It may not quite meet the standards of a therapist’s massage, but home care using products with rigorously selected plant-based ingredients can help this moist and supple feel last that much longer.
With these three missions complete, “When I take it off, I’m amazing!” now includes amazingly moist and supple skin. This leaves just one more mission, my last. To prolong the varieties of amazing I’ve acquired here today at GINZA SIX, I need care on the inside as well. As you get older, the way you feel has a remarkable and direct impact on the condition of your skin. It would be beyond disappointing if the final rush of work I expect at the end of the year led to dispiriting fatigue, undoing all the invaluable amazings I’ve acquired here and leaving me back where I started. To avoid such a catastrophe, one thing I can do is to eat a ton of fermented foods, which help boost immunity and provide antioxidant effects. I go to Sennenkoujiya on the second belowground floor, which stocks a wide-ranging rigorously selected lineup of food products featuring fermentation from Uonuma, Niigata Prefecture.
Last month, I went to the house of a chef to do an interview and was treated to homemade amazake, a fermented rice (nama-koji) drink. The chef made the nama-koji fermented in a rice cooker, I was told. Not only was it delicious, drinking it conferred a pleasing sense of energy and fleetness. I resolved to make it myself for a reliable daily boost. So, today, I wonder if they have nama-koji to make the drink. I’m looking, looking… and there it is! They have a ton of it! This is a special nama-koji from the noted brewery of the Hakkaisan sake. The name, too, lets you know it: Hakkaisan no Kuradashi Nama-koji (700 yen). Along with making amazake, it can be used for salted koji, soy sauce koji, and miso.
I put the nama-koji in my shopping cart and turn to check out, when—hey, there are rows and rows of original sauces, soy sauces, and other condiments and seasonings here, all with koji, and they’re calling my name! There’s too much here to pique one’s interest. What to bring home?
I’m at a loss, so the proprietor grants me a special opportunity to taste some of the products that tempt me. From the right are Koji no Shoyu (200 ml, 600 yen), Koji Ponzu Shirogoma (200 ml, 600 yen), and Kakerudashi Kojidare (200 ml, 600 yen). Perhaps because of the mellowness of koji, the flavor is gentle and soothing, as if you could simply drink it down.
As well as nama-koji, I buy an original sauce and soy sauce, one bottle each, and my inner care shopping is complete. I’ve been so busy lately that my meals have become haphazard—I’ve hardly cooked for myself. Now that I have these top-of-the-line fermented seasonings, I’ll start cooking at home again to detox my body because, I must say, even if it’s winter and cold and I’m always bundling up, “When I take it off, I’m amazing!” Feeling the warmth of positivity, I make my way home.
