Winter Accessories | H&M

I don't know about you, but when it comes to winter accessories, my go-to items are definitely scarves. They just come in sooo many different shapes, colours, patterns - which makes them perfect for bringing any outfit out of the ordinary and spice it up a bit. With that being said, I don't usually wear hats. BUT! I recently found this cute knitted bobble hat from H&M (and, by the way, this was not intended to be an H&M exclusive post). I am very much fond of the way it sits on my head and - I think - it looks very adorable on. Especially with that faux fur bit on top. 
Secondly, I bought a very thin and simple necklace, also from H&M. If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am a person who enjoys very much wearing just basic and simple jewelry and accessories like that. So, naturally, I picked this up from the array of necklaces they had. It is a golden fine necklace with a round/circle detailing on it. I love it and I think it goes so well with a ton of different outfits.

What are some of your favourite winter accessories?

The Contour and Highlight Picks

I'm not sure if any of you do the same thing I do, but recently I find that when it comes to face products I will some days go for bronzer and highlighter, whereas on other days I will simply go for blush. I only usually go for all three when I do my makeup for an event or just more special occasions.

That being said, I thought I would share some of my most recent go-to products when it comes to the contour and highlight job. The first thing I apply to define the face is the Avon Luxe highlighting concealer in a v-shape under the eyes and blend it well. I will then contour with the bronzer that comes in the Sleek Face Form kit (I have it in shade Light) and, finally, I apply the highlighter from the same Sleek palette. This highlighter is one of the best I have ever tried, it's not too shimmery or powerful, just the right amount to give that dewy glow to your cheeks.

Those are mainly the products that I go for when it comes to contouring and highlighting my face. What are your usual picks for this?

Winter Bundle-Up | What I Wore

Sweater: New Look  |  Jeans: New Yorker  |  Scarf: New Look  |  Boots: Deichmann  |  Watch: New Look

We've been having some very cold and dreary weather lately, all foggy and not so much fun to have to deal with everyday. So my outfits have basically remained as comfortable, bundled-up and warm as possible. That's the reason why I've been loving this thick sweater from New Look - it is one of the warmest items I own. And that weather is also the reason why I didn't take some full shots of my outfit - it has made it impossible to take pictures with even decent lighting in them, so I decided to just take some like this, which are at least more bearable than the other ones I took of this outfit. Can't wait for warmer and longer days, so I can actually go outside and take better pictures.
Anyways, this outfit is basically a combination of greys, blacks and burgundy, a combo that I really like wearing and that is very winter-appropriate, if you ask me. I hope you enjoyed seeing my outfit, even though it's not a full shot of me wearing it.
