Winter Favourites 2016


Hi everyone, now I'm not usually a fan of Winter, usually I hate these cold dark days and the thought of it nearly being Christmas, already, horrifies me!  I mean what happened to Halloween, one day of Halloween is just not enough, not when Christmas seems to go on for weeks!!  Who agrees with me?

Anyway, but this year, I've quite surprised myself; I've been really enjoying getting cosyed up in the evenings, I've been loving the selection of hot chocolates at Costa, I've been trying every single one and I've been wrapping up extra warm in a big scarf, cute woolly hat and my new gloves when I dare to go out, so I've not been feeling the icy cold quite as much as usual.
So I thought, even though it's been a while, I would show you a few things I've been 'favouriting' lately.


Last week when it was really cold, I dug out all my winter clothes from the back of my wardrobe.  My old faithful booty slippers that I loved wearing last year, my oh-so-cosy mint teddy top that I lived in last Christmas and these cute little grey sparkly slippers, take it from me they are so soft inside and keep my toes nice and warm!


I also picked up these wonderfully adorable little bunny slippers from Asda, they were only £3 and they're so soft and so incredibly cute!!!  I love them, I've been wanting a pair of bunny slippers for so long, I couldn't believe it when I spotted them and they went straight in my shopping basket :-D


Like I said, I've been loving the new selection at Costa.  Each weekend I go there with a full on mission to try a different one and something I've not tried before, my favourite so far it's probably the orange hot chocolate, oooh they're so nice and they even put tiny little gold stars on it, so cute!  Next week it's the Black Forest one and I want to try the white hot chocolate after that, as they look so tasty!  And as for that chocolate shimmer cake, omg, heaven!



I've been rediscovering a few old favourites in my makeup drawer lately too, even though I've been obsessed with the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara for ages (you've heard me mentioned it loads), I've been using my lovely Urban Decay Perversion mascara again and really loving it.  I find I do need 2 or 3 coats otherwise it doesn't really do anything for my lashes, but once they're all on, wow, I'm a happy bunny!  I've also been re-loving my old faithful UD Naked palette, the shades in this are just so gorgeous, so usable and blendable.  They're just the right amount of shimmer and the shades work perfectly together, whether I want a simple look or something a bit darker.  Sidecar and Darkhorse have just been my absolute staples every time!



Carrying on with makeup, these gorgeous lippy's have all been my go-to's lately, the only problem has been deciding which one to pick.  I've really been loving wearing darker lip shades over the last month and will definitely keep on wearing them probably for the rest of the season.  As always, my wonderful Soap & Glory Replumzel has been at the top of the list, but second to that has been the beautiful Tanya Burr lip gloss that I received in last years advent calendar, called Bewitching, it's a gorgeous deep red sheer shimmer, so pretty!


Which leads me nicely on to advent calendars!  I bought my new Tanya Burr calendar back in about the first week on November I think, I put it away in the cupboard (so I wasn't tempted to have a peek) and finally I was able to get it out a few days ago, finally!  It's been a long wait and I'm so excited to start opening the doors.  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see the bits I've had already :-)  Also in addition to my beauty calendar, I picked up a lovely Thornton's one from Tesco last week.  Call me a 5 year old, I don't care, I've been wanting a chocolate calendar so much, I never ended up having one last year and I was so excited to have one this year lol :-)




Lastly, I've noticed an extreme lack of nice thick winter jumpers in my wardrobe, despite the fact that I bought about 4 new ones last year, goodness know what happened to most of those!  So I've had a good shop around over the last couple of weeks and found several that I really, really like.  I got the lovely pale grey one and the cream one from Asda, these are so thick and comfy!  And the other two I got from Tesco and I love them all and I can't wait to start wearing them, I think I'm going to be lovely and snug this winter :-)

And one other quick mention, not promising anything but if I can figure out how to edit videos on my laptop, you may spot something new appearing on my very unused youtube channel this coming week, which will kind-of accompany this post!  It may be a one off, it might not, I'm still deciding.  But so far so good and I'll keep you updated on my social media's.

As always, I hope you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment below and let me know what you've been loving this month :-)
Until Next Time Stay Happy
