On the face of it, January is a very exciting time. New beginnings. A clean slate. Jodhpur-based exercise regimes. In reality? It needs a little help to successfully appeal to all. And this help comes in the form of…
Cosy Bed Socks, Marks and Spencer.
Super soft and snug, slip on a pair of cosy bed socks in the early evening before bed and basque in front of a roaring fire under a blanket.
Fashion Accessory #1
While some may dispute whether there is anything exciting about thermal socks (I completely disagree) January fashion is far from dull. Spruce up your favourite warm jumper or winter coat with a dark faux fur collar.
Fashion Accessory #2
Your wallet won’t mind a little sale shopping. This wool beret from John Lewis has a sweet little faux fur pom pom to keep your faux fur collar company!
My all-time favourite Kiehl’s hand cream transforms dry, irritated skin into butter soft hands in no time.
Painfully dry and cracked lips are an unwelcome feeling for January. After you brush your teeth in the evening, simply wet a muslin cloth or a flannel under warm running water and with your index finger inside the cloth gently rub along your lips for a few seconds until smooth and liberally apply lip balm all over. I’m liking the Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm at the moment!
I haven’t read either of these yet, but I am looking forward to starting The Enchanted April by Elizabeth Von Arnim and Surfacing by Margaret Atwood. I hope they’re as good as they look!
