Flannel PJ’s

Nothing says winter comfort like lounging around in your flannel PJ’s in front of a roaring fire while eating tomato soup and cheese toasties watching a chick flick.

Iyanla Vanzant in her book Don’t Give It Away: A Workbook of Self-Awareness and Self-Affirmations for Young Women lists a pink & a white pair of flannel PJ’s in her Girls Survival Kit. Personally I think the kit is a fabulous thing to have for girls of all ages so I have listed most its contents below along with some of her suggestions on using it.
