#9 Blogmas - Winter Items I Can't Live Without

Hey there!

It's starting to get colder and winter is slowly settling in. Slower than expected, but it's definitely made a strong appearance - even the winter bugs are starting to do their work! That's still no excuse to be miserable in this festive season.

We all have those particular essentials that complete our Winter evenings when the weather turns bitter and the grass is glazed with frost. I always try to organise myself for these cold months with a stock of my favourite bubble bath products and fill my wardrobe with a whole rack of knitted jumpers and wooly tights. I am determined to fight off the cold this Winter and power my way through the nasty bugs - I will not let it ruin my Christmas!

#9 - Winter Items I Can't Live Without

Here are my favourite items that I just can't live without at Winter:

1) Fluffy Dressing Gown

There's nothing better than to snuggle on a cold, winter's evening wrapped up warm in your favourite fluffy, dressing gown - I practically live in mine! Let's not forget to style it out with a pair of matching fluffy, socks too. 

2) Frothy Hot Chocolate

I always like to treat myself after a long day at work with a huge mug of hot chocolate to warm my tummy. You can't go wrong with a trip to Starbucks for an extra special mug, topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles - doesn't that sound yummy!

3) LUSH Baths

I've never been a huge fan of baths, despite my obsession with LUSH, I'd much prefer a quick dip in the shower! There's just something about this time of year that makes baths seem exciting. I love a warm, bubble bath to relax me on a cold, winter's evening after a hard day at work - especially with my favourite LUSH products! 

4) Candles

Every blogger loves a good candle - no matter what time of the year! I have a whole stock of them stashed away in a pretty, little box. You can't go wrong with Yankee candles and it still amazes how incredible they smell! I plan to purchase their new selection of their Winter collection this Christmas as a little treat - I just can't help myself! 

5) Festive Novel

Every evening, I love to pick up my favourite book to settle myself down before I sleep. Christmas novels are always a nice way to get you in the festive mood - full of romance and cheer! I love reading with my favourite candles burning away, wrapped up warm in my reindeer onesie - told you I was prepared!

If you liked my first day of Blogmas, I would recommend you challenge yourself to this festive tag - it would be nice to read some of your posts!

Bye for now! Xxx
