I think with all this foul weather we are having at the moment, staying cosy indoors is all that appeals. Seeing some sunshine this weekend has been wonderful though and definitely makes you want to venture out. Even still, during this time of the year where there is a nip in the air, I’m not so keen on the ‘evenings’ out. I’d rather be all snuggly indoors and preferably with wine in my hand and something to eat in the other!
Debenhams very kindly sent a few items to emulate a cosy evening in and asked me to take you all through how we decided to spend the evening.
So….the perfect evening begins like this (after the commotion of toddler bedtime and bribery).
Enjoy a nice dinner
prepared loving by my husband made by me.
Crack open the chilled wine. If not already started…
Light a candle to create a cosy ambience. I do like a nice candle, typically girly but essential none the less. Give me a Yankee Candle and I’m very happy indeed. Would you believe that I’ve never owned one before? Anybody who knows their candles will probably wonder why on earth I haven’t had one before. Vanilla Lime was the one we tried. The price was most definitely a factor but I can totally see that they are money well spent. They burn, burn and burn!
Set up DVD for viewing. First checking for little people noise upstairs and attempt to watch a DVD all the way through. If it’s all quiet then proceed to enjoy the rest of the night. Wine or tea in a lovely teapot?
A few essentials…
Nb. I was sent these lovely items in return for this post, showing all the gorgeous goodies from Debenhams.
