Why Don’t You…?

winter girl


Go for a winter evening jog?

Wear leg warmers? Snazzy shorts over full length tights? Mittens? Ear muffs?

Be an English Rose?

Have a smooth clear complexion? Neat eyebrows? A sweep of pink blush? Wear a sweet ribbon tied in a bow at the top your head?

Put your handbag essentials in your coat pocket?

Phone, lipgloss, cards, cash and keys? Swing your arms with bagless abandon?

Have a television free evening?

Light some candles and crack open a bottle of red? Read a book or play a board game?

Have cooked apples for a warm winter dessert?

With cinnamon? A scoop of decadent yogurt?

Use treatments?

Moisturising facial? Exfoliating body? Hair conditioning?

Have a lazy dinner?

Tinned vegetable soup? With thick buttered toast? A side of oven cooked potato wedges?

Bring your lover a fresh coffee in bed in the morning?

Or make one for yourself and drink it in front of the heater? Reading a sneaky chapter of your book?

Have a delicious weekend!

    yes please to all of those (except the winter run, it’s not cold enough here for that)

    Love a good winter run.  agree – its all about working the legwarmers and shorts over tights look. For extra pizzazz, try a t-shirt over a long-sleeved top, with wristwarmers. Layers make you run faster!

      And dressing all cute makes you feel like you’re the star in a rom com about a chick who gets dumped and then gets all hot by jogging.
