4 style tips on how to stay fashionable and warm at the same time this winter

There’s definitely a certain ‘nip’ in the air and reluctantly I have to accept that summer is finally over.  Can’t complain, its been a great one and actually I’m looking forward to covering it all up.  I think winter dressing is actually easier and as I start to bring my wellies to centre stage again this year I thought it would be fun to write about my thought’s on a fashionista winter :)

1. Layer it!

Layering is an art that I’m still working on as a traditionalist. Like the old saying, meat and two veg, I was taught that you put on your thick winter coat and that was that…BUT layering is a fashion statement in itself and means it’s ok to wear a whole host of sheer clothes and yet stay warm!

2. Wrap it up!

I love an easy life. Wraps, ponchos, scarfs – they’re right on trend and they’ll keep you wrapped up and warm! They add something interesting but more importantly, one sweep over the head and I’m done.

3. Furry animal-friendly friends

This is my fashion equivalent of comfort food.  There’s something so soothing about stroking fur (never real of course!) Scarfs, boots, hats or even earmuffs – there are lots of different ways of incorporating this year’s furry trend into your wardrobe this winter!

4. Hold on to your hats!

A hat is such a cool statement and it keeps your head and hair protected from anything winter throws at you! Whatever the choice – a knitted hat, a fury hat or a lady-like cloche hat, it’s a fab way of stepping up your style game whilst keeping warm at the same time! I’m always on the lookout as I have a big head so it’s hard to find hats that fit…obviously all that brain matter :)

The stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley combines two of my favourite winter accessories below, s0 chic and so effortless!

Children’s poor dental health

There’s been so much in the press lately about children’s unhealthy teeth and whether schools and nurseries should step in to help treat this common problem.

Unfortunately, more than 1 in 10 three-year-old’s in England have rotten teeth . It’s hard to believe that the main reason that kid’s have general anesthetics in hospitals is to have teeth extracted and what makes it worse, it’s usually totally preventable.

New guidelines by NICE for England say nurseries and schools should consider introducing supervised tooth-brushing and fluoride varnishing programmes.

They feel the reason behind the high numbers of children with poorly kept teeth is e that parents don’t see the importance of keeping milk teeth healthy as they will fall out eventually anyways. Hmm, I’m not convinced that the majority of parents think this way.

ALL teeth are vitally important, even baby ones.  They help guide the adult teeth into the right place  which means less likely need for braces.  Also kids are cruel and I often have parents asking if I can help because their children are being teased for missing or stained teeth.

My top tips?

  1. CUT OUT SUGAR.  Seems so simple but in this I have to say I blame the adults.  Babies are NOT born with a sweet tooth
  2. Adult needs to brush at least once a day until kids are about 8 years old. The night time brush is the most important
  3. Use disclosing tablets to teach kids the areas they are missing.  Key is to use it AFTER brushing to learn the areas that are being missed (great tips for adults also!)
  4. Take kids to the dentist regularly…as soon as the first teeth appear. This way they are likely to be scared of the dentist.  If you are a phobic (like me!) ask someone else to take them so your fear is not transferred

If you want to know more, here is a great link to an excellent article by the BBC.

Lots of love,

Happy Halloween!

Halloween weekend is here and you might be struggling to come up with clever costume ideas or you might not just be that into the fancy dress thing… Then I’ve got the perfect solution for you! There’s SO much you can do with the makeup you might already have in your makeup bag – there’s really no need for expensive costumes and theatre makeup.

Black eyeliner – you can get really creative with a black eyeliner, either it be a simple kohl pencil or a liquid liner. Use it to create a cat face – flicked eyeliner, whiskers and a little button nose.

Red Lipstick – use a red lipstick to create a vampy witch look or why not as blood on your face and body?! The sky is the limit here!

Colours – get out all those crazy colours you never use in the bottom of your makeup drawer – eyeshadows, eyepencils, nail polishes etc. Get your imagination flowing and make yourself into a colourful clown, a vibrant peacock or simply a cool rainbow eye look similar to the one below.

Happy Halloween to you all!
