Product review – Dr.Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips

My mum recommended this multi-purpose balm to me, she buys it from Space NK and swears it’s the best lip balm out there. She spends a lot of time outdoors riding her horse and gets really dry skin in the winter.

It was originally made for sore nipples, it is now used as a multi-purpose intense moisturiser. It is perfect for lips, dry cuticles, dry elbows and feet and any other super dry patches you have.

I mainly use this as a lip balm, but occasionally I use it on my dry ugly elbows, and my super dry heels. It is an incredible intense moisturiser, it is really thick to apply, but it feels good on your lips. It lasts for ages, and softens winter chapped lips brilliantly.

It also softens my elbows and heels like nothing else. It’s like putting 10 layers of body lotion on!

I have this at the bottom of my handbag and a tiny bit goes a really long way. It’s odourless, and fuss-free, it literally just works as an incredible moisturiser and skin softener. Click here for the Dr Lipp website

Today I’m wearing…

Today I’m wearing too many colours for a cold winters day, but never mind! I’m wearing a vintage polka for dress, with bright pink House of Holland tights. My feet feel very snazzy today because I’m wearing my favourite vintage Chanel shoes. They are from the 80s, and the button fastening has little interlocking C’s on.
I’m also wearing a brightly coloured ring with and Rebel nail nail wraps.

I’m a tea drinker and I love it!

I love Teapigs tea, I love them so much I have blogged about them before, and this is meant to be a fashion and beauty blog! They make the most delicious teas using the whole leaf. They come in biodegradable tea bags and you can see real leaves, flowers, berries and what-not in the bag. They are really special and really delicious! If you are not sure if you should try them or not, it might be time to watch this, and see what Teapigs is all about! There are more videos on Teapigs TV.

Also, Teapigs have kindly given me the following discount code, so you can get 15% off your tea purchase. Just use the following code at the checkout TPTVBLOGS (small print, can only be used once, excludes gifts, cheeky deals and matcha kits) Go forth any buy all the tea bags you want, I strongly recommend the peppermint, camomile and rooibos creme caramel! But to be honest, they are all amazing!

I also love storing my Teapigs in vintage Kilner jars, they look too lovely to be hiding in a cupboard.

Hand candy

I love dressing up my hands! Today I’m wearing my Sagen Sweden ring, it’s made from a vintage plate which is set into silver. I bought it ages ago and I love it! I’m wearing it with two Vivienne Westwood rings. On my nails I’m wearing L’oreal Titanium nail varnish mixed in with Rebel Nails nail wraps!

Love letter!

I spotted this ring the other day and I thought it was the cutest thing ever! I really want this little K ring from Daisy. It does of course come in every letter of the alphabet, you can wear just your single initial or you can layer them up to spell a word! They are made of silver and gold, they are a great price, making them a great gift.

Today I’m wearing…

Today I’m wearing an old vintage dress, I bought it years ago but I’m still in love with the print. I love the black base and bright, ditsy flowers! This dress needs a few accessories, so I piled on two of my favourite pieces of jewellery, my Chanel brooch and my beautiful Gemma Lister jewelled collar. Since I got this collar I have barely taken it off! I just love it! It seems to make every jumper and every dress so much better!
