The Christmas Jumper | #ICovetChristmas

It's no secret that I love a good Christmas jumper (just check the stash I have tucked away under my bed from the last five years) and when it comes to picking the right festive attire, it's usually the tackier the better. This December though I've gone down a completely different route with an understated grey number from H&M.

Being a fan of the monochrome wardrobe - black, grey and white make up the majority of my outfits these days, this slots in perfectly and the simple 'Dear Santa, I Want It All' slogan written in cute silver balls which A) couldn't be more relevant and B) adds just the right festive touch.

It's also a jumper I'm not ashamed to be seen wearing in public - unlike the bright red light up snowman equipped with 3D nose and scarf I have somewhere in my collection, and have happily wandered around in it all week with Mariah Carey playing on repeat in my head.

Have you found this year's Christmas jumper yet?

Christmas Party Make Up | #ICovetChristmas

When I think about the festive party season one word stands out to me; glitter, glitter and more glitter. It just isn't Christmas without it, so for this year's party look I've gone for a beyond sparkly gold eye and of course, lashings of red lipstick. This also marks the start of my countdown to the big day - look out for the hashtag #ICovetChristmas, where things are going to get sickeningly festive around these parts.. you have been warned!

Serozinc Comes to the UK

The moment all skincare lovers have been waiting for is finally here, La Roche-Posay's Serozinc Zinc Sulfate Solution is now available to buy in the UK! This little blue can just about clinches the title for 'most hyped skincare products of the year' (who thought a toner could make me giddy with joy when spotted in the aisles of a Parisian pharmacy?) but unless you were planning a trip to France or willing to drop more than double the asking price on eBay, it's proved practically impossible to obtain.

Thankfully though the skincare Gods have heard our calling and Serozinc will be stocked for the first time on Escentual. Still not quite as easy as popping down your local Boots, but fingers crossed with the likes of Bioderma now being rolled out across the country, we may not have to wait too long before picking up a can of this skin soothing, blemish fighting wonder becomes as easy as buying toothpaste!

Three Winter Coats

The Winter coat is probably my favourite item of clothing ever, but since finding 'The One' isn't always easy I've picked three different styles that cover all bases - the smart option, the throw on jacket and something warm and cosy. Put those all together with some chilly-weather appropriate outfits, a few awkward in-car changes and a very cold Saturday afternoon and you have three minutes of Winter wardrobe goodness!

Winter Skincare Staples

It doesn't take much to get me chatting about skincare, especially in Winter when a combination of bad weather, central heating and scoffing as much Christmas chocolate as I can get my hands on turns my skin into a dehydrated, dull mess. When the colder months roll around I like to bulk up my routine with a few extra steps and re-introduce the products that I know will keep things as soft and hydrated as they should be - my Winter staples!

November Favourites

The second to last edition of this year's favourites videos - my how time flies when you're hoarding lipsticks. I've found an unexpected nail polish love, a body butter that will make you want to eat your own arm it smells so good and a handful of new make up items that I haven't been able to say no to all month!
