Lotions & Potions…

Flatlay

Here is a round up of a few of my favourite lotions/moisturizers and oils to use during the winter months (all year round for that matter but especially when it is cold out).

S&G Nutrix JM Diptyque

Jo Malone // Diptyque // Soap & Glory // Lancome

I love the smell of this Jo Malone body oil. I actually ordered this one but they sent me the one in this picture. I smelt it before I was going to send it back but loved the scent and ended up keeping it. A lot of the time I actually put this on my shoulders and use it as my perfume. It smells great and really helps with dry skin! This Diptyque oil I have had for a little while (previous post on it here) and I still really enjoy using it. It also smells great and feels great on the skin. I don’t use it in my hair because it makes it oily but if you have think coarse hair I think it would work great. I discovered this Soap & Glory moisturizer a few years ago when I went to Turkey. I wanted a small moisturizer¬†to take with me and found this in boots. I absolutely love the smell of it that I think this is about my 4th pot of it. Lastly, this lancome moisturizer is great if you want something that is thick but does not feel sticky. I used this when I went to the beach last summer and it worked great!

Leather and Suede…

Faux Leather

I picked up this faux leather dress after Christmas in the sales and the price could not be beat (under $30)! I actually ended up wearing it on New Years Eve with these OTK boots (which are also suede) and wavy hair (not like the disaster going on in these pictures). I like the pairing of (faux) leather and suede because I feel that the suede softens the harshness of the leather. That is why I also like this dress with these shoes here, which by the way are some of the most comfortable shoes I own. The ties just add a little bit something extra!

This coat has been one of my best investments. It is so warm. I wore it when we went to France last year and it kept me toasty the entire time.
