It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... just me?
This post could be... could be a disguise for me to express my love for the festive season. As for now, we'll stick to being cosy.
Get snug with mulled cider
I had mulled cider for the very first time this weekend and it was a true joy. What wasn't pleasant however was the journey to get to it. Jack and I won a little stay at a hotel in Falmouth and thought we'd venture into town for dinner but we had to battle the rain first. It was all worth it though, Jack sheltered me with his coat like a real hero and we legged it.
As soon as I took a sip of this goodness, the cosy vibes were rippling off me once more. We're talking rum, brandy, orange, cinnamon - everything which makes the world good basically.
Watch Christmas films early
Yep. I've already watched Home Alone and I have no regrets, I have that Christmas feeling. In fact, as I type this - my sister is singing 'I Wish It Would Be Christmas Every Day', I have no complaints. Winter weekends should definitely consist of Christmas film marathons and a lot of flavoured coffee.
Wrap your hands around an Eggnog latte
I spend way too much money on buying takeaway coffee, to be honest if you added it all up over this year, I'd probably be able to buy that Macbook Air I've always been dreaming of owning. Yet I can't let go of that festive treat - sigh, Hannah, sigh.
Blanket fort time
Mhm. Everybody loves a blanket fort.
Light a gingerbread candle
Winter is all about the candles; while you're in the bath, in bed, at the dinner table, beside the fire - you name it, a candle belongs there. I've had my Cinnamon Yankee candle burning non-stop - the perfect scent for a cosy night in.
Feel hygge with friends
I love everything about hygge and I'm not ashamed to say so, and that's what being cosy is all about. There's nothing better than getting a few friends together, having a game of Monopoly and drinking a hot bevvy.
See the Christmas lights
*Breathes heavily* yes for Christmas lights! It's that time of year to stick a wooly hat on your head, cover your face with a chunky scarf and explore those Christmas markets with a mulled cider (of course) in hand.
Shortbread, gingerbread, cake, mince pies... bake them or maybe just buy them from Morrisons - whatever the choice, it's a good one.
What's your favourite way to get cosy?
