Current Winter Woollies

With Christmas Eve only a week away and those chilly winter nights drawing in, I've been adorning some new and super cosy winter woollies to keep me toasty in the mornings and evenings and daytime too for that matter. I've already raved about this Missguided cacoon coat, but it really is just a camel coloured, oversized, fluffy bundle of wearable deliciousness. I was then lucky enough to unwrap this big fur stole from Topshop on my birthday (birthday haul coming to my YouTube channel tomorrow fingers crossed!) and have been layering it on top of my coat ever since. I love the foxy colour and way it adds a touch of luxe to any outfit. Plus my neck has never been so warm... Finally we have a cheeky new GAP jumper peeking out here. It's a cream cable knit number that I picked up at a bargainous 40% off last week. It's such a winter wardrobe staple and really good quality so I'd highly recommend picking one up yourself whilst the discount is still on. #enabler

Get Your Snow Glow

In these cold, harsh winter months it can be hard to keep your skin fresh and bright, rather than dull and a wee bit too pasty. Obviously radiance peels and bottle tan are brilliant helpers, but on days when you need a quick fix simply follow these steps and you'll be faking a snow glow in no time-

PRIME: Before popping on any other makeup make sure to use a primer that gives your skin a bit of a glow before you even get going. I'm loving the Laura Geller Spackle in 'Champagne' because it warms up the complexion and adds a touch of sparkle as well as doing the whole standard smoothing out thing.

POP: The main way snow works to beautify the complexion is by giving you those rosy, pinched 'just got in from building a snowman' cheeks. But you won't need no snowman if you add a pop of peachy pink cream blush to your apples instead. I haven't left Benefit 'Majorette' alone for over a month now...

GLIMMER: To really amp up the glimmer and glow, you need to get highlighting. Rather than going for something strong and obvious, go for a softer powder like theBalm 'Mary Lou Manizer' that you can dust over the forehead, brow bones, cheeks and nose to really wake up the face on winter mornings.

LINE: The hardest area to fake a wake up has to be the eyes, but you can help to eradicate redness and give the illusion of widening by putting a nude coloured pencil in the waterline. Both your eyes and purse will thank you if you purchase the brightening dual ended bargain that is Maybelline 'Big Eyes'.

How do you get your snow glow?

The Winter Weekend

As much as I love vlogging my weekends, you can't beat getting proper snaps of those special weekends away, especially at Christmas time. So last weekend when me and the boy went to stay with my sister and her fiancĂ©, who are expecting a baby in March, I made sure to bring the beasty camera along. Nathalie lives in Portsmouth which is actually one of my favourite places in the UK- with a pier/seaside, lots of history and quaint little pubs and shops, it's a real good one for stay at home breaks. We spent lots of time having wintry walks, stopping for coffee, cake and Christmas shopping along the way. Rather exceptional roasts from the Kings Street Tavern also made an appearance, as did a certain adorable bump that I couldn't stop talking to and my sister's moggy, Snickers. All in all it was a really lovely weekend and I'm now feeling even more festive than I did already if that's at all possible!

What's your idea of a perfect winter weekend?
