Autumn Essentials
Autumn is my favourite season, not just because I can stop trying to lose weight as under my coat and jumpers it doesn't matter anyway and I adore autumnal days as they're chilly and cozy! I love coming in from the cold, putting on my comfiest clothes, cozy socks and reading a good book. Here are some of my autumn essentials:

*Heat Holders Snuggle Ups Luxury Fleece Blanket (£23.99, Hot Chocolate)
Blankets are an essential on our house, everyone has one, it's like being in a nursing home! I have a couple that my auntie has made for me which I love but massive and super cozy blankets are essentials for this time of the year. The Heat Holders blanket is 180cm by 200cm, it has a 1.4 tog rating and it's the softest blanket ever!

*Heat Holders Ladies Socks (£7.99, Dark Lavender)
Since I was a child I've always been told that these cozy socks were called bed socks...The socks are so cozy and soft; they are perfect for around the house or with high boots. They have grippy pads on the soles so there's no chance of embarrassing slips (they remind me of the socks I had as a child but they had Eeyore on them).

*Flame Homeware 'Fireside Snooze' Candle (£6.99)
Candles are such an important home decor and home fragrance essential for me as they not only make any room look cozy but they also release gorgeous autumnal and wintery scents. I burn candles all year but the majority during the colder months. I love this scent from Gift Company which is musky, rich and perfect for autumn.

*Molton Brown Ylang Ylang Hand Cream 
The Molton Brown Ylang Ylang range is one of my favourites as it's such a gorgeous, musky and floral scent that I cannot get enough of. I have eczema on my hands so they are perpetually dry but especially at this time of the year. The cream keeps my hands smooth and comfortable for most of the day and it smells incredible.

*NutriBalm Balm in Relax Me & Energise Me 
Lip balms and cuticle balms are also essentials for me! These little balms are handmade in Yorkshire, suitable for vegans and vegetarians and they contain 100% pure natural active ingredients such as cocoa butter, sunflower oil, argan oil, rosehip seed oil and more. The 'relax me' balm is my favourite of the two mainly as it smells like lavender and that's one of my favourite scents ever! The 'energise me' balm works just as well and has a musky, almost spicy scent.

*English Fairytales (Pan Macmillan), The Canterville Ghost (Alma Books) &  Crane Pond (Europa Editions) 
Last year I could count the number of books I read on one hand but now I'm onto my 64th book of 2016 which I'm SO happy about. Reading has very quickly become an entertaining, relaxing and anxiety relieving hobby and it's even more relaxing under a cozy blanket with candles burning. One of my favourite books of 2016 is Crane Pond by Richard Francis as well as the gorgeous Pan Macmillan English Fairytales edition. Alma Books also have some beautiful and affordable editions too.

  12. I love blankets! Nothing makes me feel cozier than sticking on a pair of fluffy socks, lighting a cinnamon candle, and wrapping myself up in a blanket. Great post, and I really love your pictures!
