It’s mid winter now and the frosty mornings are in full swing. I for one have decided to try and embrace them, I’m not a fan of the cold but it’s nothing that a knitted jumper and scarf can’t fix. I’ve never been a pumpkin spice girl but a salted caramel hot chocolate never hurt anyone and the odd one will inevitably be consumed on the way to college to warm me up.
Being as pale as I am, I tend not to wear makeup in winter because I don’t want to get up and also the winter mornings do my makeup for me. My porcelain cheeks go a rosy red and my lips go red from dryness, but that’s easily sorted with slick of the Lanolips 101 Ointment which is purse sized and is going everywhere I do. With my skin as white as snow it would only be right to sing with the animals as I go (I’m joking of course, my cat does not appreciate my singing.)
The winter nights of course bring me the opportunity to watch films, light candles and take long, hot baths, this of course means Lush baths and inevitably Lush trips. My favourite product at the moment is unsurprisingly the amazing So White bath bomb which I picked up in a haul last year. The fresh crisp apple scent will forever be my favourite I think, it makes me feel so energised and less lazy which is probably why I also bought the So White shower gel too! On the nights I’m not huddled up in blankets I’m out on a frozen hockey pitch watching my breath in the air. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sport but it doesn’t half ruin you hands and my trusty Soap&Glory Hand Food has been used more often than not.
I want to do something different on the blog this year, something fresh and more me. It will still be beauty based, I can promise that, but I’m thinking every now and then I’ll do a post like this. A little informative post to let you know what I’m up to and how it’s all going. Sort of like a catchup with friends just without the Starbucks in hand whilst we go shopping, especially as I am on a spending ban till March.
You can expect plenty of reviews this month, hopefully also some better photography, (I’m trying my best anyway,) and some longer posts. I also want to interact more with other bloggers; I was all about the chats until I went back to college and I let my organisation slip, so much so that I couldn’t find time to reply to blog comments, let alone schedule tweets and it really upset me for a while. So I’d really appreciate it if you could leave me your link, I’ll make sure to spread the blog love and leave you a comment or two.
Happy 2017, I hope it treats you right and you get everything you wanted!
