I'm not sure if it's because i'm a Winter born baby or the fact that I suffer terribly with prickly heat and burn easily in the height of summer but I love Winter. Here i'm talking November/December Winter time (I know November is technically Autumn!) as opposed to the bleakness of January and February.
In light of the more biting weather looming here is the Winter TAG...
Favourite aspect of Winter?
I love wrapping up snuggly a long faux fur coat with a soft snood and a hat and heading out to watch the fireworks on Bonfire Night. My family have a tradition of enjoying pie and peas and toffee apples beside a roaring bonfire. I also love Winter in large cities, London especially when Winter Wonderland kicks off in Hyde Park and you can go ice skating around a brightly lit tree in South Kensington.
Favourite Winter lipstick?
For a festive, bright red I love 'Ruby Woo' by MAC and for a dark, plum shade 'Vamp' by Make-up Revolution.
Most worn Winter coat?
A big, fluffy leopard number from Primark that I bought five years ago and it's still going strong. You can find it in this post from 2012, it's coat pictured at the top.
Favourite Winter treat?
Hot chocolate with cream, marshmallows and a sneaky drop of Amaretto so that it takes like cherry bake-well tarts.
Favourite Winter candle?
DW Home Inc 'Molasses and Tobacco' it smells divine! Smokey, deep and classic.
Three Winter essentials?
- Lip balm for sore, chapped lips, I really like the Carmex tub which sits on my desk.
- An oversized coat to layer underneath and that doubles up as a blanket.
- A snood or scarf to keep your neck warm and to wrap over your mouth to stop you breathing in the cold air and getting a sore throat.
Favourite Winter nail polish?
I'm currently loving 'Rainbow Color Blast' by ORLY. It is a beautiful shimmery purple with iridescent green sparkles.
