How to Survive the Cold if You Have the Metabolism of a Hummingbird

I'm sure everyone is sick about talking about how cold it is. However, I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that aside from when I'm sleeping at night under my warm down comforter, I haven't felt warm for more than an hour straight over the last week or so. Apparently I have the metabolism of a hummingbird, because once I'm cold there's no going back. So how do I survive the cold with the metabolism of a hummingbird?

I go with a pair of socks, a pair of skinny jean, a pair of knee high socks over said skinny jeans and original pair of socks, and then some boots just for added insulation.

Then on the top, I go for a tank top, a tee, a long-sleeved shirt, and then a sweater. I like to add a scarf and hat to keep heat from leaking out of my head. And then.... then. If I'm still not warm enough, obviously I turn to my hot foil press as a heat source.

And that, my friends, is how I survive the cold with the metabolism of a hummingbird. Hope you're all staying warm out there wherever you may be! And if you live in a warm location... well, just don't talk to me! ;)


  1. Heidi, this was extremely funny and thank you - it was so needed! Too bad I don't have a hot foil press that I can run to to keep my hands warm. For the past week, I have the sniffles the moment I get out of bed. Hopefully after this next snow storm everything will be back to the so called normal :)

  2. yikes! that sounds as cold as here! ugg! hunker down and stay warm for sure!

  3. hahahaha..that is so funny. We don't wear shoes in the apt because we have carpeting and stuff so I usually just have socks on with a pullover and a blanket. But.. I just received a gift from my grandmother of monkey slippers so now I'm really toasty.

  4. I'm in Oregon, not even in the extreme cold, but its reallly very cold here too.. and yes metabolism of a hummingbird is right, i burn off everything i eat and can never stay warm, so layering is all i can do to stay warm. I often wrap up in blankets and switch on heat for 20 or so mins and keep everything closed up and covered to keep the warmth in Thank you!

  5. Hahaha, I'm the same way. And I'm actually wearing a hat indoors right now, too. Bonus: it means I have to do less to my hair.

  6. yet another reason to invest in a hot foil press :) i love it.
