Blogmas Day 10: Cosy Evening

One of the things I love best about this time of year is the excuse for cosy evenings. Hot chocolate, candles, fairy lights, blankets, fluffy socks, TV, films, baths, onesies… etc. all make for a lovely cosy autumn/winter evening.

Today I thought I’d share with you some of my favourites for a cosy evening 🙂

Bubble Bath

Complete with my trusty rubber duck 😀 I love a good bath and bubble baths on winter evenings are great! Especially if you’ve put your pyjamas on the radiator so you have warm PJs to change in to 😀

Fairy Lights

I love my fairy lights and LED candles at this time of year and love curling up in bed with a film on with these on 🙂

I wish I was more of a candle person but I’m always terrified of forgetting to blow them out so I never leave them on long enough! But I love my candles this time of year.

Christmas Lights

Christmas time isn’t complete without some kind of Christmas lights!

Books and Films/TV

Curling up in bed with a good book or film definitely feels right at this time of year too!

Hot Chocolate 

So I kept meaning to take a photo of this but kept forgetting 😂

Cosy Pyjamas 

So there we have it, some of my favourites for a cosy night in 🙂 I hope you enjoyed today’s post and I’ll see you again tomorrow!


What I got for my Birthday

So last week I turned 24 :O Last week wasn’t a great week for me… I’m not sure why but it was probably mostly due to the long wait for hearing back from an interview I’d had (for a job I really wanted)… which I then didn’t get 😦 I was also dreading getting my uni results on Friday (my birthday) because I had set myself up with the expectation of getting a distinction in my masters.

Anyway, Friday was my birthday and it turned out to be a pretty good day as I managed to pass my masters with distinction (the highest mark you can get at masters level) so I was already in a bubble that no one could burst at 9 am!

Friday was spent out shopping with my mum followed by presents and pizza takeaway in the evening 🙂

So what did I get for my birthday?

Fat Face Boots – I wanted these boots to go with my dress that I’d picked out for my graduation but I couldn’t afford them at the time when I’d seen them on the Fat Face website so I didn’t get them. Anyway, while I was in the Lake District last week for my interview we found a Fat Face in Ambleside and I found these boots that I liked. I didn’t get them assuming I could get them online, anyway, I checked online that evening and they’d sold out :O So we went back to Ambleside to get them the next day and my grandad bought them for my for my birthday present (as they were £75!).

Abercrombie and Fitch Jeans – I desperately needed some new jeans. All my jeans were getting really old and worn. Anyway, me and mum went to Ashford Designer Outlet on Friday and I found a couple of pairs of jeans for £30 each (£62 usually) and mum bought them for me for my birthday.

Moana DVD – From my brother, cause you’re never too old for Disney!

Joseph Joseph Rolling Pin – I’ve wanted one of these adjustable rolling pins for soooooo long and I decided to ask my brother for one for my birthday and he got me one 🙂 I can’t wait to use it 🙂

Malteasers white hot chocolate – I love hot chocolate and this was from my aunt/cousins 🙂

Piping nozzle cleaning brushes – from my mum, because piping nozzles can be annoying to clean!

Cath Kidston Polar Bear Print stuff (inc. pyjamas, towels/flannel, bed socks, jumper and mug). I love this polar bear print that Cath Kidston currently have and I couldn’t resist a lot of it! I mean it’s too cute… especially when you’re a marine biologist! The mug was from my aunt while the other bits were from mum and dad 🙂

So now I’m another year older and now I can start to think about Christmas! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you again soon 🙂
