Cosy nights in
As the nights draw in and we welcome a new season, I have been loving spending time creating the perfect cosy space to hibernate, relax and reset before a gorgeous nights sleep. The clocks went back this weekend and there is something very comforting about the thought of cosy nights in with a warm dressing gown on and all the candles lit. Here are a few of my favourite products and rituals I swear by for an evening full of zen during Autumn.
Hibernate Scented candle
Celebrate the hibernation season with this stunning new candle which I can’t get enough of! The ultimate cosy night in and for me it all starts with lighting my favourite candle to set the tone. This has the perfect mix of Vanilla, Patchouli and Cedar Wood and instantly evokes a warm, cosy, autumnal feel. Check my Instagram post for details on how to receive a free travel size!
Rose Gold Brightening Eye Mask
A face mask is the epitome of a night in and are great for some instant skin TLC. 111SKIN are my go-to for power masks that feel amazing and promote a radiant glow. The Rose Gold Brightening Mask soothes, hydrates and brightens... So sit back, relax and let it do its magic.
Perfect Sleep Pillow Mist
A nighttime ritual I swear by! If you need help drifting off into the dreamiest sleep, this mist enhanced with sleep-enhancing essential oils is the answer. Neroli, Lavender, Geranium and Chamomile help relieve stress, anxiety and tensions; whilst the Rose quartz crystal water soothes your senses, quietens an overactive mind and sends you on your way to the land of nod.
Mia Soft Double Cotton Pyjamas
A cosy evening starts when you get into your comfies and these beautiful cotton Pjs are the perfect go-to! With an elasticated waist and double-faced cotton, this set was made foe comfort!
Renaissance Body Scrub
Pamper your skin and exfoliate the day away with Oskia! This heavenly scrub is formulated with a combination of MSM, Pink Himalayan Salt, Fermented Pumpkin Enzymes, Vitamin E and Starflower Oil. Who doesn't love the feeling of slipping into those freshly washed, crisp sheets with the softest, fresh skin?
A blown out match is up there with one of my favourite smells, so these scented matches are a dream for me! BULY have designed the perfect way to quickly and elegantly perfume the ambient air and they have 8 stunning scents to choose from.
Sparkly Fairy Lights
These are one of my favourite features in my house! I have these fairy lights around the fireplace all year round but they're much more magical in the autumn/winter months! I love the little twinkle in the corner of my eye whilst I'm watching a film. These are from John Lewis, available in lots of colours and give a subtle amount of sparkle.
Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil
Start (or end) the evening in bliss with this GORGEOUS bath & shower oil. Chamomile and vetiver calm all senses and soothe an overactive mind. This is the perfect gateway to relaxation. It works wonders after a stressful day and my skin feels so nourished and hydrated after a soak in this, I feel like I'm in a spa... Dreamy.
Staple Slouch Socks
Such a staple for a cosy evening! These lovely chunky, ribbed knit socks are the perfect amount of slouchy and chic! They come in 8 gorgeous colours including green, blue, black and camel and are 3 for £30! These gorgeous socks would also make a lovely Christmas gift.
Aarti Cosy Robe
I start winding down as soon as my dressing gown goes on! I take a deep breath and I'm in a completely different state of mind. These dressing gowns are like being wrapped up in a cloud, they are the absolute staple part of a cosy night and would also be perfect as gift!
Firming Body Oil
Let this luxurious oil sink into your skin whilst you watch your favourite film. This aromatic and hydrating body oil helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks and leaves skin SO soft and silky-smooth.
