You should all know by now that I’m a total Essie addict. They’re my favourite nail polishes by far: great colours, long-lasting and quick drying….what more could you need? I’ve been playing around with the new Essie Winter 2016 collection* and it’s pretty flipping Christmassy.

It’s highly likely that you’re sick of the word ‘Hygge’ by now. It’s everywhere. But the concept is a good one and one that you’ve probably been partaking in without knowing for a long time. As soon as the clocks go back, the warmer coats come out of the back of your wardrobe and you start dreaming about stodgy, delicious meals (stew and dumplings anyone?). You are drawn to all things comforting. So I wanted to share all of my winter pamper essentials. I hope you enjoy these, don’t forget to leave a comment with your winter pamper favourites so I can check them out!
