Let’s get cosy for Autumn
Dark nights are here and what better excuse for ordering a takeaway, popping open your favourite bottle and watching hours of Netflix? Snuggle down and have a look through our Autumn shopping guide to make nights in extra luxe.
Nothing says the seasons have changed more than turning the lamps (and the heating) on as soon as you walk through the door. We j’adore these statement Flux lights by Studio Arcform, based in Leamington. It’s a double whammy of practicality and art, with sweeping gold curves.
Grab a glass of wine and head up for an hour of pure relaxation where you (possibly) won’t be disturbed. We love these bath salts with Himalayan pink salt and essential oils like lavender, rose and patchouli. They’re also stocked by Muddy award-winners Berylune, result!
Pull on your dressing gown, grab a good book and light this jar of deliciousness by Rugby-based family business Twinings. They’ve featured in the likes of Tatler and Vogue for their environmentally-friendly and bio-degradeable natural soy wax candles and wax melts. Think notes of rose, cedar and leather in this three-wick candle.
There’s nothing like getting into your jim jams, so slip into these luxury animal print pyjamas from Mint Velvet as soon as you get home. Cosy, cute and comfy – that’s the three main boxes ticked.
Snuggle up on the sofa with this super-soft white and gold throw edged with pom poms from Thrills of the Emporium – who doesn’t like a pom pom! Also perfect for layering on the bed on a cold night.
I mean, the fluffiest slippers and with a bejewelled lobster? C’mon. You can also remove the brooch and wear it on, erm, everything. Pick a pair up from Stratford-upon-Avon based Vinegar Hill.
Is there anything comfier than an oversized hoody and a pair of leggings? Don’t bother answering that. Snuggle up on the sofa in this soft, longline sweatshirt from Leamington store Driftwood. It’s also available in the prettiest pale blue if you’re determined to keep those summer vibes strong.
A warming tipple
So now you’re sitting comfortably on the sofa and have finally found something to watch, you’re going to need something to drink. What’s more warming than a brandy, and what’s better than giving yourself a healthy measure in this gorgeous glass from Dartington Crystal? I have the very same at home and it makes a drink in the evening extra special. Make mine a double.
