Current Faves: Winter Edition

Wednesday, 4 February 2015

It snowed in London. I was not impressed. Here are a few current faves that are getting me through Winter.

& Other Stories candle in Studion: named after the brands photographic studio in Stockholm, Sweden and part of the scented candle collection they have with New York-based perfumer Jérôme Epinette of Robertet, the candle smells deliciously fresh and woodsy, with top notes of bergamot, cardamon and lemon, heart of fig, violet leaves and mate leaves and base notes of almond, coconut and blond wood. It was chosen for me by a man and isn't a scent I would normally pick for myself but it is a welcome change!

Nivea Essential Care Lips: winter really tries its hardest to make me butters but I am fighting back! My standard Vaseline and even Eight Hour Cream have just not been cutting it lately and then I found this! It is soooo thick and creamy on your lips, leaving them moisturised and nourished for hours instead of minutes and gleaming rather than a glossy mess for my hair to get stuck in. Fully reccommend! And currently only 95p in Wilko (I love that shop - and there's one open late right by my tube stop so I often find myself buying things I didn't know I wanted on my way home haha)

& Other Stories Nail Colour in Orchid Mauve: A gorgeous pink-nude colour with a great flat brush for applying, these £5 nail polishes are a welcome edition to the nail polish market. I read recently British women now spend more money on nail colours than lipstick per year. Do you?

My dressing gown (old): I'm living in it while it's so cold! I wish I coud wear it outside without all the stares...
