January Nights

January just makes me want to stay in, cold and dark weather is perfect for cozying up at home. First thing I do is get into my comfy clothes. I would recommend Jack Wills’ Women’s Joggers for the feeling of ultimate comfort, they are just super soft and they have an elasticated waist (this means more room for my food baby).

I next I make myself a hot chocolate, my mum bought me a Whittards set for Christmas. My current favourite is the mint option, tastes like you are drinking After Eight Mints! I always go overboard with the marshmallows too, I scoop them off the top once melted. Anyone else do this?



Now I’m ready to get comfy on the sofa, I reach for a snuggly blanket and light some candles for that ‘hygge’ effect. My go to candle is the Soft Blanket from Yankee Candle, it smells like baby powder and clean cotton sheets.

I usually scroll through Netflix for half an hour, undecided on what to watch, anyone else guilty of this? If you like nitty gritty drama I can recommend Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror and Luther. If you’d like something a bit more light-hearted, I love Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Ru Paul’s Drag Race and Gossip Girl.

A quick pamper routine will accompany my lazy evening in, I’ll opt for products that are nourishing and soothing, keeping things minimal. I’ll remove my makeup with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleanser, following that up with the Pixi Hydrating Mist. I’d finish the simple routine off with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, which is heavenly on the skin.

By this point, I’ve probably fallen asleep on the sofa or I’d be ready for bed, a few spritz of the This Works Pillow Spray and it's off to the land of nod!

How do you have a cosy night in?

  3. This sounds heavenly! Especially the hot chocolate, I'm exactly the same with the marshmallows.
    I love Peaky Blinders - we got the DVDs for Christmas, though had watched the series before that and we booked a Peaky Blinders tour in Liverpool! I can't wait!

  4. This sounds so lovely! That's one of the things that I love about winter - there's always a good excuse to curl up on the couch with a blanket and a good TV show and call it a night.
    My cozy night in involves a big bowl of soup, some whiskey, and an old favorite of a book that I've read so many times I could practically recite it. In fact, I might have to do that this weekend, I think.
    Cheers,
