Cosy Night In Essentials
Cosy nights in. Who doesn't love them? Going out and hitting the town is all well and good but sometimes you just can't beat spending the evening at home on your own. After a long day in school/work it can be amazing to take some time for just me. I love to turn off my phone, not go on the internet, just cut myself off from the outside world for a little bit, clear my mind of the worries of the day and the challenges faced. Here are some of the things I like to include on those cosy nights in.
Ok this is the number one essential! Nothing says comfort like a lovely blazing open fire. It keeps you nice and warm and adds a cosy atmosphere to the room. There's something about having a fire lit in the room that makes me so happy and relaxed.
Joggers? Check! Hoody? Check! Comfy socks? Check! There is nothing better than coming home, getting out of those awful tight jeans, or un-comfy skirts, letting your hair down and maybe even removing the old bra (we all do it sometimes hehe) I spend my time in comfy leggings/joggers at home. I need to start cracking out my onesie more often!
Hot Drink & Snacks
The addition of food to any situation is always a good thing in my book. You can't beat a nice warm cup of tea during down time. Complete with some chocolate biscuits? Perfect! If you want to really treat yourself, it's all about the pizza for me. Oh God I really want pizza now, but no its 10.16pm, best not!
I'm terrible for letting my nails go really chipped and un-attractive. So when I'm relaxing in the evening and doing 'nothing' it's a perfect excuse to get my talons in to shape. I'm really loving Barry M's Lychee. It's such a popular colour but I've only tried it out recently. It's so classic and clean! I'm excited for Spring to come now and to start using some more pastel shades again, I'm kind of over most of my winter nail polishes!
A Good Book
As you may have seen in my resolutions blog post I want to read more this year. I don't know why I don't read that much as it is. I think having to read SO many novels whist studying English in university turned it in to a chore for me which is pretty sad. I asked on Instagram and Twitter for some good books to read so if you know of any let me know in the comments. I do love reading, it's a great way to escape from reality for a bit and unwind, I just need to re-enlighten that love with some good books.
Finally, how cute is that picture of Nicky's legs over my knees? I told you we were soul mates!
Do you like to stay in or do you prefer to go out and do things most evenings?
