Welcome to Amanda Zips It Up Jan 28th

WE MADE IT! January is almost over!

Welcome Zipsters!

Now we can count down to Valentines, longer days and the beginning of Spring.  But it’s still bloody freezing and warm sunshine still feels like a distant dream.

Hands up who loves a cosy dressing gown? Me, for sure. Especially over a pair of White Company pyjamas and cashmere bed socks, all tucked up with an electric blanket for good measure. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

Well get this…

ALDI is selling a heated dressing gown for £35 and I say it’s a “dream come true’ to keep us warm this winter. The launch could be perfect timing as we expect snow and temperatures as low as  -7C this week.

The Kirkton House heated coat has already sold out online but it will be available in Aldi stores from Thursday (January 27).You can find your nearest branch using Aldi’s online store locator.

The dressing gown is made from soft flannel fleece, with a 28cm by 55cm heating area. It has nine temperature levels and in-built controls to stop it overheating – but you should always follow the safety advice.

For example, you should never get it wet unless you have completely removed the detachable lead cable and hand controller. Also, make sure you remove all the electronic elements before you clean it – but after that it can be popped in the washing machine on a 30C wool wash cycle.

It even looks quite stylish. Another one in the back of the net for my guilty pleasure, Aldi.

Onto this week’s instalment, and we discuss Men’s Fashion Month, plus the supplements we should all be taking to feel tip top.

Also, over this week and next, I discover more incredible TROPIC SKINCARE make-up goodies. Plus.. Don’t miss my VLOG on Facebook and Insta.
