Cosy nightwear for winter

I don't know about you but I'm definitely beginning to feel the chill at night now! And one of my favourite things about winter is being able to snuggle up in warm, cosy pyjamas and socks. So I really wanted to put together my favourite picks of girly nightwear for this winter!

I love onesies, I think they are so cosy. But I think you'll agree that they're the most annoying things to be wearing when you need the toilet! I love this pink and white christmas print onesie - it's so cute! And the hood adds extra cosy-ness!

If there's one place to go for pyjamas it's Cyberjammies! They do lots of gorgeous printed nightwear. I love this perfectly festive red checked one for Christmas.

These are the cutest slippers I've ever seen! They come in lots of other colours too. They look super soft to walk in with their fluffy insides!

Bed socks are an essential at winter, and M&S always come to the rescue for me. These are great value as you get 2 pairs in one pack and the designs are really cute. 

This dressing gown looks the right thickness to keep you perfectly warm. Sometimes I wear gowns that are so thick I actually get too hot and end up having to take them off! 

I love to wear eye masks at night sometimes if I'm struggling to sleep or I'm travelling. This one is made with satin and is filled with lavender seeds so smells amazing!

Wishing you a warm and cosy winter! xxx

How I Keep My Nails Long & Healthy

It's a question I get asked almost every day... how do I keep my nails so long? Are they real? Well, in this blog post I reveal my not-so-secret 3 easy tips to maintaining real long, strong and healthy nails all year round! And they're pretty simple...

1. Don't bite your nails!
This is kind of an obvious one... but seriously. I don't bite, pick or barely touch my nails which definitely helps to let them grow. If you're struggling to beat the habit, try one of those nasty tasting formulas like this one from Boots. Once you stop you'll be on the right track to longer, healthier nails. 

2. Condition with oil and hand cream
I use hand cream regularly every day (my current favourite is this one from Crabtree & Evelyn). Whenever my hands feel dry in the day I'll quickly pop it out of my handbag and apply some. Also once a month on an evening whilst watching Friends I take off all my nail polish and apply some CND SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Conditioner. This oil is award winning and is infused with jojoba oil and vitamin E, creating stronger, healthier nails and hydrated cuticles.  

3. Invest in a great manicurist
I always try to have a manicure once a month. Not for gels or acrylics, but just for a simple normal polish manicure. And you don't have to go to these top beauty salons and spend £50 on them... those little Chinese nail parlours do just the job for as little as £10 depending on which one you go to. And I find that as long as they spray a little nail polish fixer on afterwards, my manicure lasts weeks! Having a manicure once a month keeps nails tidy and trim. (Plus I'm awful at painting my own nails!)

It sounds simple but that really is it! I hope this helps xxx

Your Ultimate Winter Boho Dress

I'm not a very boho kind of person normally but when I saw this dress I immediately thought the print was amazing, and as I've been wearing it out a few times I've had a lot of compliments! It's such a statement dress so can easily be styled with a simple pair of black tights and boots for winter. The dress is made of a warm, thick fabric making it equally suitable for the colder weather. And on top of that, it's super affordable! Get it on your winter wish list, now!
