My Essentials For A Cosy Night In


Today I'm sharing all my essentials to have the perfect cosy night in, I felt this was the perfect time to create this kind of post as Steven and I are about to move out of our family homes and into our own place together which is very exciting but also very expensive so we won't have much money to go out and do things for the next few months while we get settled so we'll definitely be having lots of cosy nights in!

This post is being sponsored by Panasonic who is currently promoting high dynamic range television (HDR) which is great because let's face it the number one thing you want to have for a night in is a TV. Generally when I'm having a cosy night in I will go straight to Netflix as they have so many movie options or I can catch up on the series I'm obsessing over at the time.

Here are some of my favourite things to watch:
Bates Motel
Slasher
Riverdale
Gilmore Girls
Friday Night Dinner
Scream
13 Reasons Why 
Evil Genius 
Mind Hunter
The Originals 


A lot of my favourite things to watch are thrillers and horrors, not necessarily gory horrors but anything that keeps you in suspense with a sinister vibe. I especially love to watch these kinds of films on cosy nights in when I have company because I'm not brave enough to watch scary things if I'm in the house on my own. 

The next thing you need is some cosy blankets and pillows, I love snuggling up on the couch with a big fluffy throw particularly in autumn/winter. To go along with this I would suggest you put on comfy clothes or your favourite pair of pyjamas, 90% of the time if I'm in the house I have my pyjama bottoms on but it's a necessity for a cosy night in. I'm also a big fan of oversized fluffy socks, I find these more comfortable and easy to wear than slippers.


Okay, so one of the most important things for me to have for a night in is snacks! A good one is probably the most classic, popcorn, these days you can pick up so many different and interesting flavours which can be very low fat if you're trying to be good or if you don't care, grab a bag of that ultra sugary delicious Butterkist Toffee Popcorn which just so happens to be my favourite. When you can't be bothered cooking treating yourself to a takeaway is always a good idea, my favourites are pizza or something from the chip shop......yum! Some of my other favourites are chocolate, crisps and ice cream.


The perfect start to a cosy night in starts with a bubble bath and some scented candles, this is one of my favourite things to do when I'm feeling stressed and in need of some self-care. You can even take it a step further and pamper yourself with a face mask etc.

Finally, if I'm having a cosy night in by myself then I like to read a book, I pretty much exclusively read psychological thrillers as these are my favourite but I think I'm going to try and branch out more in the future and find some other genres that I like.


So there you have it, all my cosy night in essentials!
If you have any good movie/tv suggestions let me know!
