Outfit Post – Fashion Bloggers Please Dress Warm

It is my birthday in a few days and I am looking forward to celebrating the new year in my own way. Being a January baby means I get to start the new year with a birthday and align my goals to suit my new stage in life. I am still in the process of styling my birthday outfit in my head (it has to be perfect since I am a fashion blogger right?), not really decided what I would wear or what I would do on the day. But I am sure ideas would crop up closer to the date, so look out for a birthday outfit post soon.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago. The Silver Grey Long Oversized Coat With Faux Fur Hood is a new wardrobe addition. I am so in love with it. It is the right length and it feels so warm and comfy. The faux fur trim hood is an added touch of beauty and the puffy fit is great for layering this winter.

Dressing warm is so important in the winter and we fashion bloggers need to promote that a lot more. I remember when I initially started blogging, I came across a few fashion blogs that would show off outfit posts wearing summery pieces in the middle of winter, and I thought it was so unrealistic and misleading. 9 times out of 10, these bloggers would pose outside for a few minutes to get the photos taken and get back inside to wear something more sensible. Like who walks around in a mini skirt and crop top in the winter months?

I don’t play with the cold weather. I dress warm and make sure the kids are dressed warm too. So I find it crazy to see many fashion bloggers still doing this. Fashion should be stylish and comfy. You should not have to choose one over the other, when you can have both. So my fellow fashion bloggers, please think twice before you step outside to be photographed in yet another revealing outfit in the middle of winter. It looks very silly and dangerous. Health is wealth, remember that.

Both perfumes are amazing. I only have good things to say about them. So if you are contemplating grabbing one or the both of them, just do it! Read the full review below to find out why you should.

 

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle – £49.00 – £89.00

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle image

 

This floral signature fragrance smells divine! La Vie Est Belle’ is a French expression meaning life is beautiful. And life is indeed beautiful if you walk around smelling like a million bucks!

This fragrance is an eau de parfum with ingredients – Concrete of Iris Pallida, Jasmine Sambac, Absolute Orange Blossom and Absolute Patchouli Essence.

 

PROS
  1. I adore the stunning bottle. It is such a beauty!
  2. This floral fragrance is very long-lasting. It stays on all day.
  3. It works for both day and night, and all seasons in my opinion.
  4. I love the name – La Vie Est Belle. It sounds very posh.

CONS

None. I can’t fault this perfume at all.

 

Lacoste Touch of Pink – £29 – £55

This fragrance is a lot less serious than the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle and a lot cheaper. It is a vibrant and youthful fragrance worth trying. 

Lacoste Touch of Pink has both sweet and floral elements which make it a great perfume for young women. It features top notes of Orange, Coriander, Cardamom, Peach and Blood Orange, heart notes of Jasmine, Violet Leaf and Carrot Seeds and base notes of Sandalwood, Musk and Vanilla.

  3. Touch of Pink is a great daytime fragrance.
  4. It is quite affordable, which is great.
