Hello all my beautiful readers!
It's been under 0 degrees most mornings on my way to work. It's absolutely freezing in Canberra right now – winter is well and truly here!
Although I hate the cold and really don't like winter, I do love the accessories that come out at this time of year. I particularly love scarves. There are so many patterns and styles and they can completely change your outfit. You can definitely get some inexpensive scarves that still look fabulous.
I recently went in to Forever New and The Body Shop picked up some fabulous new things that I consider winter essentials. And, of course, I'm going to share my purchases with all my fabulous followers!
Scarf: You can't go past a winter scarf. This one from Forever New is basic in colours but will add interest to any outfit. And because of the black and white colours it will match with lots of different jackets, cardigans, tops and even dresses.
Gloves: Everyone definitely needs a nice pair of gloves. I absolutely love these black stretch fabric gloves from Forever New. The fur around the wrist gives the gloves a vintage feel to them too.
Stockings: There's also plenty of great stockings and tights to choose from at Forever New – and 2 for $20 is a great deal for fashion stockings. I even saw two schoolgirls going halves in this deal, with each of them getting a pair of stockings for $10. So cute!
Body Moisteriser: Now one thing that we might forget about in winter is keeping our skin moisturised. We tend to cover up our skin so we don't notice when it needs some TLC. But I find my skin is often flaky and dry in winter from hot showers, so I always ensure I moisturise daily. This new body sorbet from The Body Shop is a great light alternative to body butters, and it smells delicious, as always. It leaves a sparkling dew on your skin – it is just like rubbing a delicious smelling water onto your skin!
Lip Care: I also make sure that I keep my lips in good condition too. All that cold all can creat chapped lips and no body wants that. The Body Shop has a nifty little Vitamin E Lip Balm Stick which is great to keep those chapped lips away. I use mine in the morning when the weather is at its coldest, and my lips are very happy I've chosen to do so!
Tote in a Colour Pop: I couldn't resist this hot pink tote handbag from Forever New. It adds a pop of colour to a basic black, white and grey outfit. This is why the new Mono Pop collection at Forever New is perfect for winter: take you classic black and white and mix it with a pop of colour for a fantastic winter outfit.
