Top 5 Most Used Winter Items

The UK weather is so unpredictable in recent times, I feel like we've experience all four seasons in one season alone! Anyways, here is my Top 5 most used winter items:

1. Slippers
These Minnie Mouse novelty slippers are so much fun! Not to mention it literally feels like I'm walking on cushions - heaven! You can find these slippers here.



2. Knitted Snood 
This definitely has to be my most used clothing accessory of not only 2012 winter but 2011 winter too. I love how it completes my outfit at the same time keeping me warm! I got this from Primark (£4, if I remember correctly!). I wear it on average once a week and it's been in the wash many times and the quality remains the same - bargain!!

3. Coat
(Also shown in the picture above). Now this is the most obvious item in the list! I purchased this coat last winter, and yet again it is another item I'm making very good use of. I love the fitting, the colour and the button and belt design. I'm always receiving compliments on it, quite a few surprised faces when I say it's from New Look...never underestimate New Look!



4. Kintted Shawl Wrap
I am in LOVE with this wrap! The softness, the length, the colour - it's perfect! Ok so it may not keep you very warm in extremely cold weather conditions, but it is PERFECT for when you're only outdoors for a short amount of time, or when you're indoors and you need to wear that little extra clothing item to keep you warm. I wrap it around me for when I'm heading to parties/weddings, it looks so classy or even when I'm just visiting family who live a few minutes away. You can find it here from Marks and Spencers, £19.50 which is great value in my opinion. Considering getting the black one too hmm...




5. Nail Polish
So this isn't a really winter specific item, but it's something I've been using a lot during this season. I'm usually a bright, in-your-face kind of nail polish girl however this winter I'm loving the more dark, dusky, and deep nail polish colours. Currently, I am loving the combination of this grey and lilac paint. I can't help looking at my nails constantly and thinking to myself why I hadn't got these colours sooner?!


And that's my top 5! Oh, one item I would like to add to this top five winter items is a new, resilient umbrella, after the devastating consequences the great British weather had on my last umbrella...


Happy New Year everyone :D!

Love,

  2. I love the shawl, it looks so warm. Wrapping up snugly in a pashmina or shawl is the nicest thing when it's chilly. Thanks for popping in & leaving a lovely comment on my blog. x
