My Favourite Colour this Winter..

This Winter and Autumn season I have loved the colour burgundy. Its just so nice its just, wow. I have chosen my top 5 items of clothing in the colour and I have written a bit about them :)
This is my knitted zip-up jumper. Its soo comfy and I just love it. The zip at the back doesn't make it the easiest to put on, but after a couple of minutes of trying to see how far your arm can bend, you'll probably get there (if you're a little less lazy than me, you can always walk downstairs and find someone to zip it up for you :P). I got this from New Look and it was £17.99 which I was willing to pay as it was burgundy. It also came in a navy and a cream colour.
I also picked up this infinity (aka snood) scarf from New Look too. It is so comfy to wear (comfort is always a must with any kind of clothing) and I just love infinity scarfs. It isn't too heavy, which is why I chose this one instead of a cable knit ones as I feel like they can be a little heavy, if you get what I mean.

The next thing I have loved which is the colour burgundy is this knitted beanies. I decided this year that I will allow myself to buy one beanie each year, one and only one. This is because if I didn't restrict myself, I would buy about ten each year and only wear one or two. So this year, I picked up this burgundy knitted beanie. It is quite thick and it does keep you warm. It also has this pom-pom on the top which is fab because how can you not love pom-poms?
The next thing is this burgundy top and yet again its from New Look. Its kind of lacy in a way but not too see-through but I would recommend a black vest under it. This top isn't the warmest but it does look quite nice on. Its thin but its what you would expect from a top really. I would normally wear this with some black skinny jeans and some gold jewellery but really, how you style your clothing is completely up to you.

My last fashion piece is this knitted cardigan. I got this last year, from yet again New Look. Its a chunky knitted cardigan and keeps you very very warm, perfect for the winter. Its lasted me a year and I can see it lasting me longer. Its perfect for lounging around days and just going shopping or something :)

My Favourite Lip Balms

So far this Winter, I have been having days of chapped lips and so I have been trying different products and balms. These are a few of my favourites;

Firstly, I hve been using Baby Lips by Maybelline. This one is in the tint "Cherry Me" and is a quite bright ruby colour. I have been wearing this sometimes just to go around town etc. and it has been quite good. It is really moisturising but it doesn't really feel like it works against chapped lips that well.

 This is the Nivea Essential Care, which I picked up for a pound. I wasn't really expecting much from this balm but it does work better than the Baby Lips by moisturising your lips.

My final lip balm is Burts Bees lip balm. I had this as a Christmas present in a set. It feels like quite a minty kind of lip balm because it includes peppermint. I was expecting it to be a bit more honey like but I do like this product and it really works against chapped lips.

Little side note: This is my first blog post and I am interested in blogging. I hope this was an okay introduction and thanks for reading :)
