COLD WEATHER CHIC

Over a week into January - a belated HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

It's been a cold start to 2019 and I was pleased to wear my beanie with the faux fur pompom from Primark, bought at the beginning of the season.

From my existing wardrobe, I found some beautiful winter warmers that I bought last winter:  
Black Suede Sock Boots trimmed with small studs from Topshop, a Black Scarf with fringes and black mittens with faux fur pompoms, both from H&M.


It was so nice to receive H&M gift cards at Christmas from the family and I have already spent some of it on a couple of warm things.  Living in a flat with polished wooden floors, slippers are an essential for me and I bought these soft grey, cable-knit slippers trimmed with a bow and pompom and lined with a lighter grey faux fur. The soft soles have anti-slip protectors. It will be lovely to slip my feet into them on a cold morning! 

Amongst the "new arrivals" for the new season in H&M's Divided range, I found this warm, soft-knit black jumper, with ribbing around the round neck, cuffs and hem.  The shape is fashionably short.

Cold weather can make skin red and sensitive.  You may have read my post "La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Daily Moisturiser" back in the summer, when I reviewed my sample of this product.  If not, you might like to read it, so please just click on the link below:-

I mentioned that I had a spare little sample tube and that I would save it for the winter.  La Roche-Posay claim that it helps to reduce redness very quickly and I thought that I would try it out when my face was affected by cold, wintry weather.


Yes, it did calm the redness down really fast and soothed away any feeling of soreness.  I think this is a very soothing moisturiser and well worth buying.  Although I have used the same excellent moisturiser for years, I am thinking of buying Toleriane Ultra as an additional treatment when needed.

Now I am going to warm up with a lovely hot drink - a cup of Twinings Blackcurrant and Blueberry tea!
