How to have the ultimate cosy weekend

So I felt like a proper adult this year as I've managed to remember the clocks are going back tonight. With the extra hour in bed (read: extra hour to stay up scrolling Instagram in true zombie-like fashion), come darker evenings. I tend to go into hibernate mode this time of year and it takes a lot more effort to leave the house - I'll always stay in if I can - but there's more to do from the comfort of your sofa than just vegetate! Here are my fave cosy weekend activities, which can all be done whilst snuggled up with a blanket.

Whip out a box set - This one is pretty obvious, but TV gets so good around October and I don't need to tell you that Netflix is also there to amuse you. My favourite comfort watch though has to be my Harry Potter box set. Nothing like a trip to Hogwarts to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Paint those nails - Every weekend I sit and give my nails a file and a coat of something. It makes me feel like I've got my shit together come Monday. Plus it's a great excuse not to move for half an hour because they need to dry! My most used this time of year is always Bordeaux by Essie as its the perfect wine shade.

Read, read, read - If you're not the binge-watching type or want to get back into reading, this time of year is perfect for unleashing your inner bookworm, Whether you're into magazines, novels, poetry or self-help there's something out there to keep everyone entertained.

Ditch the makeup - Whenever I have a busy weekend out and about my skin gets a bit congested and the spots start popping up. A cosy weekend at home is a chance to go makeup free, stick your hair in a top knot and slap on a face mask. My favourite at the moment is Lush's Cosmetic Warrior which smells really weird because it contains garlic and apparently eggs (what) but has such a calming effect and you sort of get used to it!

Keep the hot drinks flowing - We like to keep  constant flow of teas and hot chocolate on the go when having a cosy day. I'm a big fan of Options as they contain less sugar but still satisfy my sweet tooth!

What are your top tips for a cosy weekend?

  2. You've now made me want to stay in on Saturday! Let's hope it's pouring down with rain so I have an excuse to sit in front of the television all day. I am a winter baby at heart, so I do love cosy days/nights in xx
