Number 7 – Night in with Ghost and the Power Crew

Winter night in, winter at home, Winter Netflix, Netflix, winter tv binge, winter survival, winter style, winter fashion, winter beauty, winter pamper

You were just minding your own business watching a bit of Netflix and Ghost walked across your TV with his top off. Take a seat ladies, you don’t need to go out this winter, a six season binge on the sofa under a fluffy blanket is where you need to be. If Ghost wasn’t enough 50 cent makes more than one appearance and Tommy makes for extra eye candy. There is a storyline in there and it’s all very exciting, did we mention they all spend a lot of time topless?

Number 6 – Hot Chocolate… Enough said!

Winter night in, winter at home, Winter Netflix, Netflix, winter tv binge, winter survival, winter style, winter fashion, winter beauty, winter pamper, Winter treat, winter chocolate, winter hot chocolateHot chocolate with all the extras and some extra chocolate on the side, preferably under the same fluffy blanket while watching Ghost on Power. If you want to turn this into a true winter indulgence add a face mask on but no cucumber slices on the eyes, you don’t want to miss a thing! Where are you getting the face mask? Scroll on…

These products are made for black skin and hair. Highlighters that pop on black skin to natural hair treatments you’ll love for your own private pamper session while you read a magazine in the warm. The next edition has a British Nigerian Star on the cover but we won’t say who just yet!

Number 4 – Pepper Soup Gang

Pepper Soup gang! Those who know, know and those who don’t are simply missing out on the wonder of pepper soup on a cold day. This Nigerian staple won’t just warm you up, it will start a slow burning fire makıng you radiating heat. No LOL here, this is serious winter survival food. So make friends with the nearest Lagos Aunty and get her to make you a pot.


Number 3Winter body care

For winter body care it has to be the duo  Astral Intensely Moisturising body wash and Astral Intensive moisturiser to tackle the effects of the harsh cold weather on skin. Tried and tested by our team we have to say the body wash is fabulous at moisturising, leaving skin feeling smooth, without feeling tight or dry. We all carry the cute little Astral moisturisers in our handbags, particularly handy because they double up as face and body creams so no dry hands or cheeks!

Number 2 – Greenleaf is a Degree in Winter Fashion

Greenleaf , Greenleaf fashion, Greenleaf inspiration. Greenleaf church, Greenleaf ladies, Greenleaf inspo, Greenleaf inspired

Those ladies were rolling up to Church in clothes fit for a Paris runway in all sizes. The more conservative angle on some of those dresses made us think warm winter class for nights out and special events. The stories sucked us in with every turn but you have to pause to take notes on hair styling and and their fitted jackets!

Number 1Holiday
