Cosy winter nights in have become a regular occurrence here in the RosyChicc household and I just love to get all warm and fuzzy while it’s cold and miserable outside. Now with the holiday season right around the corner it’s the perfect time to relax and get those positive vibes fill you in. I have a lil’ list of evening loveliness that involves switched off phone, a hot uplifting bath and endless snuggles in cosy loungewear and beautiful aromas filling up the room. Divine. If you want to know exactly how I get cozied up and ready for a good night sleep, read on…
It wouldn’t be a cosy evening without soaking in a lovely hot bath, am I right ladies? That’s my favorite way to warm both by body and soul and it’s the very thing that calms my mind and preps me for a nice trip to lala land. Recently I’ve been loving this The Bathory Deton Bath Soak (here), which is infused with Chamomile, Frankincense and Sandalwood organic oils and not only smells divine but also draws out the toxins of your body. Brilliant isn’t it! After I’m done with my bath I like to do my skincare routine (nothing beats the amazing feel and freshly cleansed and moisturized skin, right?) and then it’s time for a cuppa (this Gifts & Pieces mug though!). I usually go for peppermint tea but if I fancy treating myself a cup of hot chocolate topped by unreasonable amount of marshmallows is a must. Before I jump in bed I fill in my Christmassy knitted hot water bottle from Primark (similar here) for some added cosiness and warmth – love!
After I tuck myself in my little sanctuary (a.k.a my bed) I make sure that I’m covered in multiple layers of loungewear, including my beloved fuzzy Polka Dot OYSHO sweatshirt (very similar here), which is softer and warmer then a hug and it’s the epitome of coziness in my books. I can never feel warm and cozy enough until I have a pair of fluffy socks on. They are cute, they are fun and so soft and squishy – such a staple in my cosy routine and I can’t be without a pair! I am quite the cold feet sufferer and when I really want to warm things up I also put on my trusty Primark slip-on slippers (here), which are reserved only for in-bed time. They keep me super warm and I love comfy they are, creating the barefoot feeling, minus the cold. Get a pair!
Now that I’m all snug and cosy it’s scented candle time! My favorite part and this divine Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Candle (here) has been keeping me the best company. It’s not your typical spicy wintery scent but I love that it offers an incredible spa-like experience. It’s warming but fresh at the same time and the hint of citrus still makes me feel a bit festive. While I enjoy the beautiful candle scent and sipping on my tea I like to switch off my phone, get off social media and just relax. Reading a nice book, catching up on some YouTube videos (how amazing everyone’s Vlogmas is this year!) or just watching a funny film – take your pick. I personally find that reading a book is what calms me the most and I love to just dive into the magic world of the characters. I’m currently rereading Pride and Prejudice (here) and I just can’t put it down! Last but not least, I like to give my pillow a few pre-snooze sprites of my favorite This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (here). Inhaling the calming Lavender, Vetivert & Wild Chamomile vapors fights the physical and mental fatigue and helps me drift off before I can count to 10. My nightly ritual cannot be complete without it. Zzzzz
