Recently my skin has been becoming increasingly dry, and I’ve purchased many lotions which have truly worked miracles for me! Here are some I’ve used a lot lately:

The ‘Pure Seduction’ Victoria’s Secret Hydrating Lotion
The ‘Sweet Pea’ lotion from Bath and Body Works
The ‘Strawberry’ body butter from The Body Shop


I’ve been really enjoying using these lately. They really hydrate your skin and keep it smooth for a really long time!


Truly do recommend these for anyone with dry skin (like mine). I’m quite picky with the products I use (considering I end up keeping them to one side and ignoring them until they’ve expired!), but I’ve moved on to using lotion regularly. I’ve found that even though I am prone to acne, moisturising and hydrating my skin is incredibly important, because it decreases rashes and irritation as well.


I’ve been especially using the Victoria’s Secret lotion (above) for a long time, and I’ve found that along with its amazing smell, it also makes my skin softer and it makes me feel nice and fresh, even in the scorching temperatures of the city!

Halloween is something everyone gets excited about – you get to dress up in different costumes, have fun with your friends and, most importantly, eat loads of sweets and snacks.


Here’s a something that can spice up your Halloween:

Hot cocoa!

Hot cocoa with marshmallow and chocolate chip eyes on FOXINTHEPINE.COM


  • 1-2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2.5 cups of skim milk
  • Around 0.5 cups of fat-free half-and-half
  • Chocolate chips
  • (You may add some vanilla essence if required!)


In a saucepan, stir together the sugar and the cocoa powder. Slowly begin to add the milk and the cream, as you continue to stir the mixture around. Do not allow the liquid to boil! Take it off the heat, and whisk in your chocolate chips at this point. Make sure they blend together, removing the lumps from the mixture. If you want some undertones of vanilla to come through the mix, stir in the vanilla pods/ essence now. Keep whisking and stirring until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour it into a glass and place your marshmallows on top.

There you have it! A wonderful drink in cold weathers; you can also “dress” your marshmallows using some edible markers.
