WEARING snug boots
There’s nothing worse than having cold tootsies in winter and when I’m out, I live in my woolly snuggle socks. When I go out, I have to wear boots and although I’m yet to dig out my Uggs this year, I love my studded boots (Boohoo) and my tan biker-style boots (New Look). Both are really cosy, although someone called the studded pair ‘tacky’ last week – are they sure?!
TESTING Maddi Alexander rose beauty balm
Another product from the Latest in Beauty Maddi Alexander Rose Limited Edition box – I’ve finally got round to use this beautiful balm and I love it. I get such dry skin in winter, particularly on my elbows, knees and ankles. After a bath or shower, I moisturise as usual and then apply the balm to those points to keep them hydrated and free from dry skin. I love the formula and find it isn’t greasy... so easy to apply too. Plus it smells great!
SMELLING Snow Fairy
Eek, I know I mentioned this last month but I can’t help but add it to my favourites again. I’m getting through bottles of the Snow Fairy shower gel and have pretty much emptied Lush Liverpool Street of Candy Mountains! There’s no nicer smell!
EATING Christmas sandwiches
As soon as Christmas sandwiches hit the shops, I have to buy them. Along with the speciality lattes, they’re my favourite things about the season. At the moment, Waitrose are the winners with their turkey & bacon, with cranberry, port & orange chutney. Boots are second with their gammon and Marks & Spencers are third with their festive ham. I had lunch at Costa and had the praline cappuccino with a turkey, stuffing & cranberry toastie – lush!
LOVING Batiste dry shampoo
This was difficult to narrow down as I’ve been excessively using two products this month. Pipped to the post was Batiste dry shampoo which was an absolute life saver when I was on my work educational. We ended up staying an extra night and I’d already packed, so as you can imagine, the dry shampoo came in handy. My favourite scent is the cherry as you can’t actually tell you’ve sprayed it to your roots. I also love my Desire Me by Escada perfume and it’s the perfect evening fragrance – a mix of sweet, musk and spice; sophisticated and mysterious. The bottle is so elegant too; I love the black and gold.
LUSTING BaByliss Pro Perfect Curl
Now Christmas is coming, I’ve been lusting after this so bad. I need the BaByliss Pro Perfect Curl in my life... please Santa, I’ve been so good this year *angel emoji*. I got to test it out at my hairdressers and instantly fell in love. It’s so easy to use – I can’t curl my hair with GHDs and have never been able to get along with a wand. I bought rollers but they’re more for adding volume and a little bounce. I want big curls! I’m so bored of straight hair, I’ve even resorted to plaiting my hair before bed (old skool!).
