I love this time of year for one thing: cosy. Curling up in front of a crackling fire, wrapped in a blanket with cute pi’s on underneath, with huge fluffy socks and my hair up in a bun. Hands wrapped round a huge cup of tea. I mean does it get any cosier than that? Hygge is the buzz word right now, but it’s a buzz word with a point! I plan on making the most of these autumn into winter evenings and turning cosy into an art, but I’ll need a few things first!
Must have’s for a cosy night in this autumn/winter!
Pjs - I’m all for thick and fluffy but once I get into bed, it’s just too many layers (considering I’ve already put two blankets on the bed too!) so I want my pj's to be cute, comfy and practical. Long pants paired with short sleeved tops are perfect for me, much like these Marylssa ones with the too cute to not Instagram lace razorback design. These would go perfectly under an ultra cosy…
Housecoat - It is not a dressing gown! It’s a hooded, ultra warm, extra thick and fluffy coat you wear in the house. Get me? Good! It’s got to have huge pockets for me to hide snacks and the remote control in, sweeping sleeves so I can pretend I’m the Queen of a dynasty, and a hood when I need to go into my own little world. So the Brently above is kinda perfect don’t ya think? And it just happens to match the pj's too! Winner
Socks - big fluffy slipper socks that go half way up my leg and may or may not have pompoms on them. I did have rabbit themed ones last year that had floppy ears and a bunny tail! Cute ’n’ cosy to boot!
And then comes the fun part - accessorising your living space for ultimate cosies. I’m talking fairy lights, big two handled mugs, candles, candles, more candles, and a few extra just in case, a fire if you’ve got one (If not, there’s actually a cracking crackling fire video on Netflix!), and food!
Cosy night in food is all about the feels, so I’m talking ultimate comfort food; soup, proper Liverpool scouse, warm apple pie and custard, hot chocolate, popcorn, dark chocolate, or even better, Turkish delight! And if you can get your hands on a Turkish delight hot chocolate, well, you can thank me later!
What does your perfect cosy night in look like?
Until next time,
