Turtle Neck Trend | Winter Fashion

One trend I have seen quite a lot recently have been turtle necks. Turtle necks on jumpers and turtle necks of tops, so on my most recent shopping trip I purchased 2, both of which will be featured in an up and coming Boxing Day Sale Haul! One grey and ribbed from Topshop, the other white and light knit from Primark. This is how I styled them!

Nails of the Week | Winter Edition

One of my favourite past times is painting my nails, I love to do it, its therapeutic and you can have a lovely nail polish colour on your nails as the result! So for today's blog post I thought, I should show you what nail polishes I have actually chosen to wear during one week of the Christmas holidays, rather than showing a huge selection of colours, which is way to over whelming to comprehend!

The first nail polish I wore that week was Barry M's Vivid Purple. This is a lovely purple colour, very suitable for winter.

This nail polish is Rich in Heart from Sinful Colors. This is a very deep red colour. In some lights it appears black and in others in appears as a sparkly red. This is very appropriate for New Years Eve!

The final nail polish I wore was Tanya Burr's, Penguin Chic. Out of all of the nail polishes, this chipped the least! This is a more muted colour which would be suitable in Autumn and Spring too!

Thank you for reading this blogpost! Tell me what your favourite winter nail polishes are in the comments below!

In the middle of December, some of my mums friends from America came over and offered to bring me some products which are only accessible across the Atlantic Ocean! Of course being a British, beauty obsessed teen I took up the offer and sent over a list of products I wanted.

On Christmas day, I opened this box which was full of mini presents and I guessed pretty quickly that they were the cosmetics brought over from America and sure enough, I was right but it was so much more than I expected! I don't know if she will read this blog post but Mandy, thank you again for all of these wonderful goodies!

Also thank you to Jackie and Darren (Other friends from across the pond but in Canada) for the Covergirl Lipsticks, the colours are stunning!

Mouth Watering Hot Chocolate Receipe

Christmas may be over but Winter certainly isn't, this means we can still indulge in delicious, mouth-watering hot chocolates! In my opinion, I can make some smashing hot chocolates. (as I show on my twitter quite a lot, P.S. follow me, its idkitsdanielle)

Ingredients and Equipment

I have never used precise measurements when making Hot Chocolates, but use your desired amount of milk and water! I personally use 3 rough teaspoons of Hot Chocolate Powder and 2 rough teaspoons of Caramel Syrup. Howver it is up to you to experiment and see which combinaton works best for you!

  • Hot Chocolate Powder
  • Water (Is not pictured)
  • Milk
  • Syrup (My personal favourite is Caramel!)
  • Whipped Cream
  • Mug
  • Kettle (Is not pictured)
  • Teaspoon
  • Whisk
Using a whisk helps the Hot Chocolate Powder dissolve quicker, distributes the flavour more evenly and avoids lumps in the drink!

1. First of all, boil the water in the kettle.
2. While the kettle is boiling, add the 3 teaspoons hot chocolate powder into the mug.
3. Once the water has boiled, pour your desired amount of water into the mug.
4. Using a whisk, stir all of the mixture together until the hot chocolate powder has dissolved.
5. Pour your desired amount of milk into the mug and whisk, to mix it all in.
6. Repeat step 5 but with your choice of syrup (My favourite is caramel. YUM!)
7. Squirt whipped cream onto the drink.
8. To add a finishing touch (and to make the hot chocolate look instagram worthy) grab a pinch of hot chocolate powder and sprinkle it along the top of the hot chocolate!

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoy making these hot chocolates, please tag me in your photos on Instagram and tweet my on pic on Twitter!
