Part 2 of my Winter Dress series. This beauty is from H&M. It is a gorgeous print of birds and butterflies but because of the darker tones and long sleeves its the perfect winter dress. I love this with my trusted Jigsaw belt (many years old). Of course this dress will look amazing with winter ankle boots or long boots.
This was featured in the Guardian which I thought was worth mentioning!!
And of course must work well with a chunky cardigan!
Everyone needs a good basic polo neck and this one from Zara is perfect (£12.99). Its a lovely dark grey with a slight shimmer and its not too tight but not too loose either. Of course this is easy to wear with jeans but I am planning on layering this under dresses etc.
I discovered Bath and Bodyworks when I was in Malaysia and I have to admit that I became ever so slightly obsessed and bought too many things! The interesting thing is that the packaging verges on tacky but for some reason that works! I love the slightly retro feel and have to admit the scents are amazing!
My favourite product is the shimmer mist so I got them in three different scents – Warm Vanilla, Japanese Cherry Blossom and Magic in the Air. These scents are infused with beautiful shimmery particles that you can use on your hair and body. The scent really lasts and the shimmer looks amazing!
Warm Vanilla Sugar smells like – vanilla & sheer florals.
Japanese Cheery Blossom smells of cherry blossoms, crisp pears, mimosa petals & sweet sandalwood
Main the Air smells of almond flower, white iris & whipped vanilla
I had to get the Warm Vanilla body mist just because I wanted a non-shimmer version for everyday
The I had to get the Magic in the Air Body Foaming Sugar Scrub.
They were out of stock of the Vanilla so I had to get the Pink Cashmere instead! This smells of pink jasmine, creamy sandalwood & white amber. The scrubs are thick and moisturising and a real pleasure to use, leaving you smelling amazing.
Then I spotted the hand washes so ended up with these two – Vanilla (again) and Gardenia. These are the Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps which are mean to be like “a 60-second manicure..specially formulated to effectively cleanse and exfoliate, while conditioning Aloe and Vitamin E leave hands feeling soft and smooth”.
I love all these products and probably would have got more if I could have fitted them into my suitcase!
Chunky winter cardigan are an essential for me, especially those that double up at coats (coatigans!). These two are from Primark (£13 each).
First is this lovely light grey hooded version.
And second is this marled, pink one.
