As the winter months draw in [ can you believe its November already ] it’s dark by 4pm and it is cold enough to freeze your brass knockers off a cosy night in at home is always a good call preferably in front of a roaring log fire with a Christmas movie playing and your loved ones close by. I love summer but there something warm and comforting about Winter. Its cold outside but baby its warm inside…
Ideally I love nothing better than getting in from work; climbing into a hot, steamy bubble bath, where I let the weight of the world dissolve away as I soak . When suitably relaxed I dry myself off, change into a fluffy pair of pj’s and settle down for a relaxing evening.
Luckily Home Bargains have everything you need to make this a reality – the ingredients for a perfect cosy night in.
Starting with a Set of 3 candles to create ambience. [1 x Pink Rhubarb and Peony, 1x Ylang Ylang, Orchid and Jasmine and 1 x Neroli, Basil and Lime ]. Do you agree that everything looks better by candlelight and that you can’t have enough candles? According to the Boy Friend my fireplace resembles a shrine!
A Gin & Tonic Scented Reed Diffuser to make sure the Lounge smells delicious. We have a beautiful dog Mollie and I’m always conscious that we’ve become nose blind so this is perfect to mask any dog smells. I love the clean-looking , simple packaging. It gives off a subtle, light fragrance and the white and gold goes well with my lounge decor.
And Prosecco bath salts for your long relaxing soak …
Next just add chocolate … and nothing says “Christmas is coming” better than a box of After Eight Mints. Try to eat just the one. Impossible! I had one last night … and 15 squares of deliciousness later I was still going strong. I can resist most things apart from temptation!
A mug of coffee with Baileys Cream [obviously its approaching Christmas] is optional … or if you prefer something fizzy go for it!
A cute miniature pink fluffy hot water bottle and fleece blanket to wrap around you on the settee are essentials.
While you are snuggled up, wrapped in your blanket , munching on chocolate and engrossed in your Christmas movie it would be the ideal time to give yourself a little pampering… because let’s face it you aren’t moving from that spot until it’s time for bed.
Pop on a Montagne Jeunesse Peel Off Face Mask, give yourself a pedicure using the Professional Pedicure Kit, followed by a 20 minute Coconut Water Foot Mask.
I don’t know about you but I love nothing better than having my feet played with so if you have a better [or worse] other half ask them to do the pedicure for you. Simply bribe them with After Eights Mints!
As I mentioned earlier all the above items are available from Home Bargains who offer a range of goodies for the perfect night in … all under the one roof.
They have a lot more candles, blankets, diffusers, face masks and beauty bits etc. to choose from which are all very reasonably priced.
So what’s stopping you – go forth and grab yourself some cosy night in goodies . Its what cold, dark winter nights were made for!
Until next time, Tracey x
