A Snuggly Throw

So treat yourself to some utter luxury this Winter with a Treacle Faux Fur Throw by Helen Moore. This exquisite throw is silky soft to touch and is lined in a sumptuous faux suede, perfect for a cosy night on the sofa.
The first casualties of Winter are without a doubt your hands. Often left exposed to the elements, your hands typically receive a lot of damage because of the cold. Dry, cracked skin is one of the most common side effects of the cold, so save your delicate fingers with a beautiful pair of gloves. The Marilyn Pure Wool Gloves by Powder Design Limited come in a gorgeous design which will perfectly compliment this seasons fashions as well as keep your hands nice and warm this winter.
Let’s be honest, the worst things about winter is the lack of heat and light, so why not create some of your own with the very decadent Voluspa Maison Noir Black Figue Chypre. This gorgeously scented candle features notes of currants & black fig infused into a heart of hysteria chypre to fill your room with a unique scent. Beautifully presented in a black, gold and red casing, this candle is a must have home accessory for winter, or if you’re feeling particularly generous it would make the perfect Christmas gift for a loved one.
A Lovely Pink Hug
With coughs and colds flying about all over the place, sometimes its completely unavoidable to feel a little under the weather, especially in Winter. So invest in something that is guaranteed to keep you warm and feeling just that little bit better with a PILL Hot Water Bottle. Designed for comfort the PILL fits comfortably against the body to relieve pain when heat therapy is recommended, such as circulation problems, relaxation of muscle aches and relief against cramps. Not only that but with every pink PILL bottle purchased a 20% donation is made to Breast Cancer Care.
