Essentials for a cosy autumn day

Essentials for a cosy autumn day

It’s Autumn. It’s getting colder, the days are getting shorter (what is getting home from work in the dark all about?!) and for me, there is absolutely nothing better than a cosy day at home doing a whole lotta sweet nothing, especially at this time of year! I’ve put together a few pointers of what my essentials are for those cold autumn days at home..

Steal all the blankets

In my house, we’re blanket obsessed. We could make the biggest blanket fort ever with our collection (why have I only just thought of this..) and every single one is so soft and snuggly. When it gets to this time of year, you’ll always see me with a blanket or two because let’s be honest what’s better than being snuggled up in a blanket binge watching your current favourite series on Netflix? Not much in my eyes. 

autumn clothing

Get in cosy clothes/pyjamas

Now we’re talking – Autumn is my favourite wardrobe as I love being warm and layered up. If I’m staying at home all day, I’ll either put on some fluffy pj’s (usually Christmas themed) and that’s me set for the day. If I do need to pop out, I’ll find a big cosy jumper, choose a scarf and put on my favourite boots. I love dressing for cold weather and I love the colours I start to wear at this time of year too. For me, there’s nothing better than layering up clothes so you’re all warm and toasty when going out.

hot chocolate

Make a big mug of Hot Chocolate

Get that giant tub of Galaxy Hot Chocolate out of the cupboard and find the biggest mug in the house. Don’t forget those marshmallows, chocolate sprinkles and whipped cream to go on top too. Mmmm. There’s something really warming about drinking a hot chocolate whilst being wrapped up with the fire on.

cosy bedding

Get out the snuggly bedding

I’ll hands up admit that I am one of those girls who likes lots of pillows on their bed. Ya know, the pillows that get thrown on the floor everytime you go to bed and never *actually* get used. Those kinda pillows are essential right? I love sleeping with blankets too, so when I saw this new bedding -eeeek- I just had to purchase it. If you love blankets like me, this will be your ultimate dream.

I needed some new bedding anyway as I like heavier sheets for the colder months. When I came across this fleeced bedding from Next, I knew I was having it the moment I laid eyes on it. I mean, fleeced bedding? A duvet blanket?? HEAVEN?? I can 100% confirm that this is the cosiest, snuggliest duvet cover I have ever owned and I don’t ever want to go back to normal bedding ever again.

Netflix, Netflix, Netflix and more Netflix

Yes, I am still bloody watching so put my episode back on because I totally can not be bothered to find the remote again under all these blankets, pillows and duvets. Do Netflix really think it’s necessary to ask this question? Netflix, hun, I’m here for the long run so can you please let me binge watch 10 episodes of Suits without making me feel guilty that I still haven’t done anything all day? I’m currently in the middle of two series and have a few on my list to start next. Binge watching is kinda my thing at the minute, if you haven’t guessed!

Are there any particular things you do for a cosy day in at home?

    I *love* my cosy blankets. I’m also hoping to get some new fairy lights to make my room extra snuggly! And then I can properly curl up and enjoy the season!

    Loving the cosy vibes from this post! I have more often than not been ditching the library and staying at home to do my uni work wrapped in a blanket haha! It’s just so much comfier than venturing outside for the walk to the library! I need to have a Netflix marathon asap, you’ve put me in the mood for a binge watch!

      Thanks Abbey! Aah that really does sound so much more appealing than the library! Netflix Marathons are perfect for cold weather!x

    A warm bath with lots of bubbles and bath bombs are how I start my evening! Pop some candles on and then the rest is what you have written!! That Galaxy hot chocolate looks amazing!!

  14. October 25, 2017 / 3:04 pm

    I have some white hot chocolate that I am meaning to start using again which I am excited about and have bought myself a scarf and want a new blanket as well. Whenever I am at home I am always in pyjamas haha!
