Can't wait for half term so I can have a week off! Been quite tired lately but at least the environment at work is so much more calm workmate-wise which is great! 
We'll be going to a Chinese buffet in the town for dinner to celebrate my niece's birthday, she's turning 14!

Cashmere, wool and mohair, just the right fabric materials you need to keep warm and cosy during the winter. If you have never tried anything cashmere, I really think you should give it a try as it is the softest and warmest natural material you can think of to use during the colder months. It adds a touch of luxury to your outfit and you can find it in a range of different garments and prices, from gloves and scarves to jumpers and even coats. Tesco, Uniqlo and H&M have quite affordable cashmere options, especially when on sale.



Vaseline Hand & Lips Gift Set

Vaseline intensive care rosy lips
The Vaseline Hand & Lips set is one of the gifts I received for Christmas. The set includes the Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in Rosy Lips and the Intensive Care Hand Cream. I had used the Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream before when trying to stop my hands from peeling so much (I discovered the cause and they've stopped now). It has a light, non greasy texture and absorbs quickly which is nice.

What I was really interested in trying was the lip balm. As the name Rosy Lips suggests, it offers a very light and natural looking tint to the lips, smoothes out any dry skin and makes lips look glossy without being sticky. This petroleum jelly improves the look of lips in just a few seconds thanks to the rose flower and almond oil but I don't think it has deeply nourishing properties that would fix very dry or chapped lips. 

Find the Vaseline Intensive Hand Cream and Rosy Lips Balm in Superdrug and Boots.
