Winter Evening Essentials

I think it is safe to say winter is officially here and it is becoming so so cold. This is why I thought it would be the perfect time to put together some of my favourite things available at the moment to get you prepared for the cold and dark nights which will keep you warm, cosy and comfortable. 

I don't know about you but I actually like the cold and dark nights as it means you can get in from a busy day of work or whatever you've been doing and just get some comfortable pjs or lounge wear on and get cosy. Sit back and relax whilst drinking hot chocolate and watching movies - I don't think anything beats it actually. Especially on a weekend when you have nothing else to do. 

I think one of the essentials during winter is of course the hot water bottle which keeps you extra toasty and I found that filling it up and putting it under the bed sheets 30 minutes before you go to bed helps warm the bed through and makes it that extra special when you get in. You can literally buy hot water bottles everywhere and they come in a variety of styles, sizes and colours. 

 I came across this one whilst I was browsing the internet one day - it's the 'Heart Fairisle Hot Water Bottle' from ASOS. In this gorgeous red colour and print it is perfect for Christmas time as well and oh so cute. Priced at £10.50 you can't really go wrong.

Another must is of course slippers! Definitely need these to make sure our tootsies are kept warm and snug. Now usually I don't take much notice of the ones I buy I just get those that look cosy but then I came across the UGG Scuffette II Slippers and it completely changed my view. They are so toasty and soft on the foot and if you love UGGS as much as I do then you're going to love these as well. They come in a variety of colours and other styles are also available. 
They are priced at £75 for these ones but I guess you get what you pay for.

Now if you're not into slippers then why not try some slipper socks instead. They are obviously lighter weight and are just a bit thicker than socks so you will barely even fee you have them on. And again whilst I was browsing the internet and looking on one of my favourite sites I came across these cute little Christmas Santa Cosy socks. They are so cute and remind me of being younger and wearing those tote socks that meant you didn't slip on hard surfaces ha! They are only £8 for a pair which I think is reasonable for the festive season. 
They are available to buy from here

Seeing as though I was already browsing the ASOS website looking for new items to add to my ever growing collection I came across this gorgeous Fleece Onesie with ears in a light pink colour. It is £28 and is absolutely adorable. I've never been a one for the onesie trend however this just looks way too cosy to pass up on on. It's so feminine and is one of the nicest ones i've seen.
It is available to buy here

I'm not usually a hot drink kind of girl they make me kind of flustered and warm (yes this is the point ha but it's just too much for me) however I can't deny the fact that at this time of year I love nothing more than a nice mug of hot chocolate with the occasional cream and chocolate sprinkles. And to those that know me it's no secret that I love Marie from Disney Aristocats and as soon as I seen this mug I knew it had to be added to the collection. It is £9.95 from the Disney store and to be honest I think this is reasonable I have a number of different ones and they've all lasted so long.

These are just a few of my favourite essentials at the moment but i'm thinking of running a blog post sometime over the next couple weeks on a huge winter wish list of items perfect for this time of year.

I'll be posting a lot more of the next couple of weeks and I apologise for my lack of posts recently it's been such a hectic time for me. 

But I will try to keep this more up to date and I will start doing a lot more hauls and things I am loving at the time. I have been collecting a few items recently ready to do a couple of posts.
So please subscribe and follow and keep an eye out for whats to come.
