5 Winter Wardrobe Essentials / Fashion Staples 2017

Shop Jumper Dress Here // (Jumper dress from

Hey everyone, there are always staple items you need in your wardrobe for each season so i thought today i'd share my top 5 must haves for this winter, i do love winter fashion.

My first staple piece would be BOOTS...

A pair of boots is gonna be an every day wear for me. I reallllyyyy love knee high boots and i haven't even got a pair (crazy, i know!)....and i would have bought some too if i wasn't going to Australia in just under 3 weeks. They go so nice with almost anything and make an outfit look so trendy. But also having other options is good too, ankle boots, heeled boots, ugg boots many to choose and i just love them!

2nd clothing item would be a JUMPER...

An oversized jumper is one of my faves, also a jumper I'm wearing in the pics above. I love the big turtle neck too, it's so cosy and warm. Paired with tights and boots...OMG, I'm in love! Even a cosy sweater jumper or hoody is so nice to chuck on with outfits if your going for the casual look or just lounging about at home, i love that style so always make sure i have plenty in my wardrobe.

3rd would be FLUFFY SOCKS...

I call them fluffy socks but maybe you would know them as bedtime socks? Any thermal fluffy socks win me over this time of year and anytime i see them i wanna buy more! Even the cosy slipper boots are the best things for winter. I always have mine on when lounging at home, my ankles get cold easily so always need something to keep them warm.

4th fashion item is a BOBBLE HAT...

Or any kind or warm hat but i think bobble hats are the best. I actually quite like the double bobble hats this year, they look pretty cool :)

5th and final item i would say you need is a pair of THICK TIGHTS..

Tights are great to wear, i love wearing skirts and dresses in the winter. Adding a thick cosy pair of tights will make it suitable for the weather but make the outfit look really trendy. Pairing boots with them or knee high socks make it a little bit warmer. It's all about the layering which is something i love about putting winter outfits together.

Do you have any staple items you always wear which i haven't mentioned? I do also love coats btw, i have a thing with coats...always wanna buy new ones and love so many different styles and colours and lengths...😻

Revlon - Ultimate All In One Mascara

Hey, hope your all good? :) Christmas isn't far now, only 18 days to go (depending when your reading this) Who's excited? :) I'm not working over Christmas now as i handed my notice into work so my last day will be on the 22nd, then I'm flying on the 29th. I can't wait because i always end up in some job where i have to work over Christmas so it's nice to actually have time off!

Today i wanted to share this mascara that's from Revlon called ultimate All In One. They actually sent it out to me along with two other products that are new out this season. I am lucky to have been sent a few items from them before to try out and it's my own choice if i share them or not.
I felt like this mascara deserved a blog post tho as it is becoming a new favourite and anything i love i have to share with you :-D

I do have another fave mascara which is actually mega cheap and i think I'm gonna share that very soon on my blog cos it's one you also need to know about :)
Anyway this one from Revlon, to be honest didn't wow me at first, maybe it's because i already had a favourite and i usually stick with what i like! Once it had been applied tho i did change my mind and really liked the outcome. It's said to give volume, length, definition, lift and intense colour. It has a comb type brush too which are my favourite types. Because of the small brush head it makes getting to the lashes a whole lot easier and especially for the bottom ones. I have the colour Blackest Black but they also do Blackened Brown and a Waterproof Blackest. This is the average price for a mascara which is £9.99 and you can get it here.

You can also see me apply it in my latest #vlogmas youtube video here. I would love you to go check out my videos, if you didn't know i was doing vlogmas then check them out here :)

What is your favourite mascara at the moment? Don't forget to follow my blog as well so you don't miss the next beauty post, i can't wait to share my other fave mascara which only costs £2, i wonder if you can guess what one it is? :-D
