… a word from Amanda

Oh No, it’s mid–January, officially the most depressing time of the year.

Whether you’re doing Dry January, Veganuary or Janu hairy, there’s no denying it’s grim out there. Well, it certainly is from the vista of the Zips It Up office here in London.

Around this time of year, I tend to start day-dreaming about upcoming tropical holidays or focusing on Valentines Day. It’s only a month away and following last week’s feature on Rhianna’s Savage x Fenty Lingerie collection, I thought I’d bring you another Valentine’s gift idea.

‘Pourings Of Love’ by Samantha Hurst is a touching collection of romantic quotes and poems, likely to make that special person in your life melt.

Samantha is a mental health coach, artist and author. She fell in love and began writing prolific poems, attracting a lot of attention on her social media platforms. She felt compelled to share all her outpourings of love and published this book.

In an era when we have finally taken the blinkers off regarding mental health awareness, Samantha’s heart-warming collection of words could prove to be a hugely positive possession for you or your beloved.

Available at Left Bank Six, 55 Elm Road, Leigh-On-Sea, Essex SS9 1SP

On to this week’s instalment of Zips It Up and we discuss the Goop Vagina Candle, Ski Chic and give you the heads up on what we’ll be wearing in summer 2020.
