We’re in the interim where we’re waiting for Spring in complete desperation and yet we’re not quite there yet. Last weekend’s snowfall and sub-zero temperatures was a brutal reminder of that! I don’t know about you but on these chilly days when the evenings still draw in early, I lack the motivation to leave the house. I have to force myself to get out in the ‘oh so fresssh’ air, which is particularly hard in the evening. I’ve somewhat turned into a grandma awaiting the Summer evenings to return before I regain my enthusiasm. I guess you could say I’ve been in hibernation mode and so I thought it fitting to put together a post dedicated to ‘staying in’. Haven’t you heard it’s the new going out??
I’ve collected some essentials to make staying in pretty darn exciting and I’m sharing them with you lovely lot.
First off I’ve been having baths pretty much every evening lately. You may think I’m exaggerating but my husband and more than likely our energy bill can testify. There’s nothing quite like it for warming you through and helping unwind. Recently I’ve been making my bath time all the more luxurious with these gorgeous
I’m generally quite a cold person so you’ll find me with a deceptive amount of layers hiding underneath my clothes in Winter. Finally I’ve actually found a jumper that is so cosy that I need only wear a vest top underneath…magic! The
It’s nice to have some pampering time but it’s even nicer when the pamper party comes to your own home. I don’t get my nails done often, in fact I barely ever go to a salon to get anything done (my American friends would be appalled) but that doesn’t mean I don’t love it! I was introduced to
I’ve really been into scented candles this year. I know, I know, I’m late to the party but I never really cared in years gone by, unless it was Christmas which always calls for mulled, cinnamon scents running through the house at all times! There’s something really satisfying about arriving home, running a bath and lighting your favourite candle to set the tone for your night in. I was recently introduced these beautiful, minimal candles from
Staying in wouldn’t be complete without a cup of tea, would it? I stumbled across this toasty treat in Waitrose a few months ago and it was like a match made in heaven because I’d literally been wondering if anyone made one with these specific flavours. Cocoa, cinnamon, ginger, cardamon and vanilla…what more could you want. It’s like comfort food in a tea! You can see it’s the good stuff but they come in handy tea bags to make it extra easy…and I tend to reuse the bag for more than one cup because I ain’t wasting any of these bad boys. Snuggle up under a blanket and sip one of these while you watch a good film. Perfection.
The bath salts, jumpers, socks, manicures and scented candles were all gifted to me, but each one was chosen by me and come with my own opinions.
