A Cosy Autumn Evening Wishlist*

Sunday 24 September 2017

Autumn is officially here, and I'm already looking forward to cosy evenings spent huddled under blankets and oversized knits, sipping hot chocolate and eating soup with chunky bread. I've made myself a list of "quiet night in" essentials for when the weather turns chilly, so I thought I would share it with you!

Nothing says cosy night in more than a pamper session, especially in the colder weather when my skin is chapped from the bitter wind. This autumn I want to try an exfoliating face mask from L'Occitane*, since my skin reacts so well to their products, and they always smell incredible. I have had my eye on the Divine Cream Mask which is a rich cream mask containing Shea Butter, formulated to help with extremely dry skin (which I suffer from almost all year round) but the Pivoine Pure Flash Moisture Mask also sounds so lovely, and apparently smells like Peonies! My skin is quite sensitive but L'Occitane skincare products are usually very gentle and soothing, so I'm excited to try their scrubs and masks.

For me autumn is also known as "bath time", so I really want to invest in some relaxing bath products to help me to wind down after work. I've heard great things about Aromatherapy Associates, especially their bath oils. I like the look of the Relax, De-stress, Revive box, which sounds perfect for soaking away the worries of the day.

It's officially dressing gown and knitted socks season, because there's nothing worse than stepping straight onto the icy bathroom floor with bare skin first thing in the morning. I have added these cashmere socks from The White Company to my autumn wishlist every year for as long as I can remember, but this year I will finally take the plunge. They're expensive and I don't really need them, but they're a little luxury that will make the dark, frosty mornings so much more bearable. 

I like to treat myself to a new fluffy dressing gown every year, and this year I've decided that I would quite like to be a unicorn, so I'm adding this one from ASOS to my shopping basket. Since I'm going all out with my dressing gown choice, I'll probably opt for some simple PJ's, this set look super comfortable, perfect for curling up on the sofa to watch Harry Potter in.

Once I've got my PJ's and face mask on, I'll be reaching for a soft cuddly blanket, and this dusky pink one from H&M will certainly do the job. I'm also on the hunt for a wicker basket to store them in, and of course this one from West Elm has caught my eye. If you know of any alternatives then please let me know! 

So those are the products on my autumn evening wishlist, what will you be adding to your pamper routine?
