Winter essentials

1 Jul

In Australia winter has come and the temperature is dropping, heaters begin to turn on and it’s freezing outside.
Hi everyone! I’m going to tell you about some products I recommend for wintertime. (Teen/tween girl)

❄ Baby lips lip balm

Maybelline New York have a range of lipbalms called “baby lips” there are many types ranging from clear flavoured ones to tinted lipstick-like lip balms.
I’m collecting them at the moment and I have Mango pie, antioxidant berry, menthol and berry pink glow. The price for these are around $3.50 to $4.00 depending on where you buy it.

❄ Bedsocks or slippers

There are a WIDE range of slippers and bedsocks from retail shops such as target, Kmart and big W. They are comfy and soft and amazingly warm. I’m more of a fan of bedsocks compared to slippers but they’re both good for winter. Slippers can range from the prices $5.00 – $20.00 depending on what type you buy and where you buy them. As for bedsocks they are ranging from pieces as low as $2.00 – 10.00.

❄ moisturiser

Moisturisers are an all year rounder essential but you skin can get dry in winter if you’re going to be layering and staying near heaters. Also during winter you fall sick easily and your skin becomes really dry whilst being sick so you MUST have a moisturiser of some sort. I have to literally wear moisturiser every day because I have dry skin! Moisturisers come in different price ranges depending on the size and brand.

❄ pocket tissues

I don’t know if you call them pocket tissues or travel tissues but they are the same thing. During this time of year colds come around and tissues are a must have. During teens/Tweens busy lifestyles we don’t have time to bring a box of tissues so what I do is keep some in my bag and If I have planned to go somewhere, the night before I make sure to put some tissues in the bag I’m bringing. These pocket tissues come in multipacks and the can OBVIOUSLY fit in your pocket.

Okay, so I’ve started this approximetly weekly nail challenge thing called Nailify This. Autumn or Fall – whatever you call it, has just started in Australia a day ago so the theme is Autumn Ombre! So what do I mean? I mean warm colours in the Ombre style.

Example of what this is about

If you don’t know what Ombre is look above. This look can be achieved with any colour but I’m using oranges and reds.

You will need:

  • Base coat
  • top coat
  • red, pink and orange nail polish
  • blush makeup pad
  • White nail polish

How To do this:

1) Paint your nails in your base coat colour then paint them all white.

2) Once they are dry grab your makeup sponge and paint a small area in the colour red and sponge a small bit of it on the bottom of your nail (just a little bit) Continue doing this from Darkest to lightest until you get to the top.

3) Wait for all that to dry then clean off the excess with nail polish remover and then [paint your nails with your top coat.

Hope You Enojoy. Please request stuff for me to try in the comments section.
