My Friend, Winter

It’s here. It’s really here. The big chill, the big freeze, the big miserable me. The dark days that seems to drag on for eternity. The sun kissed skin that's now long gone and all I have have left is dry neon white skin that looks like gross undercooked toast that no moisturiser seems to be able to battle. It’s here, Winter has arrived.

Winter Warmers

If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, it’s currently full of pictures from friends who have escaped to the sun in the northern hemisphere. There are Italian beaches, Portuguese streets, and sunshine at midnight (or close to) in Scandinavia. While my jealousy levels might be quite high, I also know winter holidays can be awesome… but you do need to be prepared. Whether you’re heading to the snow, the seaside or the country here are some essentials for winter holidays.
