Winter Essentials

For the last few days, we in the South West have been hearing a great deal about the massive storm that is heading our way!

I am quite a whimp when it comes to this sort of thing and scare mongering really effects me, so I have to admit - I am pretty terrified at the thought of this monster storm and I have mental images of our house being swept up in some sort of tornado!

Whilst I really hope that doesn't happen, the thought of the terrible weather conditions has had me pondering what sort of things I need to pick up to survive this winter in comfort and style.....

1. Hot Water Bottle


I love snuggling down in bed under the covers on a cold, wet night and listening to the rain outside but theres nothing worse than getting into a freezing cold bed when you're already feeling chilly - so a hot water bottle is a must!

2. Hot Chocolate


You can't beat a cup of steaming hot chocolate on a cold night, particularly when you've just got home and your hands are turning blue! You need something to warm them up on and it might as well be something delicious!
I don't think you can beat Twinings Hot Chocolate - it's pretty pricey but oh my gosh, it is worth every penny!

3. Stylish and Warm Winter Coat


Of course a super stylish winter coat or a really on-trend parka is a must for the winter season - I actually ordered this one online yesterday and am currently waiting for it to arrive! I can't wait to snuggle into it to brave the elements!

4. Slippers

I usually like to be barefoot at home, but in the winter there's nothing better than a snuggly pair of fluffy warm slippers....especially if you warm them up by the heater before wearing them! Bliss!



What is on your list of winter essentials? As always, I'd love to hear from you!
