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.
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.
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.
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 – but 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, so 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. Complete with two blankets and one huge pillow at the back that’s almost the size of me, my bed is a little cosy haven.
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, so binge watching is kinda my thing at the minute, plus they (Suits and The Originals) are so good to get your teeth into I’m always left wanting to watch more!
Are there any particular things you do for a cosy day in at home?
