BRRR IT’S COLD IN HERE
“I said there must be some Toros in the atmosphere”. Oh yes, I’m currently watching Bring It On whilst writing up this post. Winter to me is like a trial and error phase, buying things that will hopefully keep me warm then not return it if they fail on first impression. Wearing my signature oxblood coat since late autumn, it didn’t keep me warm as I had wanted so I had to venture for a new one. I get cold easily, afraid and sensitive to it I would say.
During the January sales, I had stumbled upon this Zara coat. When I had received the package, the coat looked like a duvet by the way it was folded and thought Zara was pranking me. I was surprised that it wasn’t fully lined with the oh so soft fur, just the hood and lapels. The coat is thinner than I had expected, however, the quilted lining is just perfect and warms me to the point I may KO at times at work, it’s that comfortable. The perfect coat.
Another must need piece is a scarf. This Zara scarf is like a blanket to me, it’s that big and oversized keeping my lower face warm. Beanies are my to go. Bed head, greasy hair, hair disasters, a beanie just resolves everything. This ones from H&M 2 years ago and have been constantly wearing it. I can’t go a day without using lip balm. The Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour (not pictured) is my go to lip balm. Thick enough to prevent my lips from cracking plus adding a hint of colour. I will be doing a full review of this very soon.
