MAGIC TOUCH Ok so this L’oreal Magic Retouch has been my absolute lock down life saver and that’s not changing anytime soon. With all the uncertainty with whether the salons are open or closed you could do worse things than having a can of this in the bathroom cabinet on standby ready to blast those roots at any opportunity. L’oreal Magic Retouch Dark Brown Root Touch Up XL £13.99

SLIP THESE ON These are without a doubt this seasons number one totally cool under-the-tree present. My advice when looking to purchase a pair of these modern fluffy sling back slippers are, GO hard or Go Home! They just so happen to be the perfect partner for your favourite lounge suit too – I’m sure you have one of those by now? UGG Fluff Yeah Logo Slide £100
For maximum fabulousness with minimum effort please meet the Katie coat by Jakke in pink. This luxurious faux fur beauty is 100% recyclable too. A made-up face and a cute outfit underneath is optional but no way essential.
AT YOUR BEST Anyone remember saying I’m ‘saving that for best’? In an attempt to not be wasteful in the current climate, it’s time for that cute puff sleeved dress or that silky pussy bow blouse to be re-purposed into your school run and supermarket uniform. Add your finest sunglasses to hide behind if your show-stopping outfits are to blinding for those who have not received the memo.
Jakke Katie Faux Fur Long Coat ‘Wear & Care’ Pink £239
The Vampires Wife x H&M £34.99
ADD SPARKLE Creating a fun vibe is a must at the moment ladies and sequins definitely have the fun factor right? These leggings from H&M get me right in the Christmas spirit. I’d rock both with a slogan T-shirt, sweatshirt or even a roll neck with a longline coat sitting over my shoulders. Whether I go for a stiletto pump or cute trainer really would depend on how I was feeling on the day. H&M Sequined leggings £17.99

WINTER VIBES Make the black or the white roll neck/body and the 70 denier thick black tights your best buddy this winter. I love this M&S heat-tech one. These two key pieces are just what you need to wear under all of those midi and mini dresses that you didn’t get a chance to wear last summer to recycle them into acceptable winter attire – finish off with a cardi, done! M&S Heatgen™ Thermal Polo Neck Body £12
