As much as it pains me to say it, it’s still very much the Winter here in the UK. It’s cold and dark, the days are gloomy and spring seems like it’s forever away. I’m not a fan of this time of year and I’m longing for the spring days to arrive. Despite the cold miserable days, there are steps that we can take to make the winter months more enjoyable! These are my 5 winter essentials to make you feel good!
A hot bath and candles
One of my favourite things to do during the winter months is to run a hot bath, light some candles and relax. After a long day at work, nothing beats sinking into a hot bath and having time to chill out and unwind. I’m currently loving using Lush bubbles bars as I received lots of them for Christmas.
A blanket and a hot water bottle
It’s so cold at the moment, and despite the fact the heating is turned on, the house still feels cold! After relaxing in a hot bath I like to snuggle on the sofa under a blanket with a hot water bottle. Sometimes I even make a hot chocolate as well!
Warm, hearty foods
Homecooked dinners such as casseroles, chilli, roast dinners and cottage pie are a must during the winter months. When I step through the door after work I like to know I’m having a nice warm meal to heat me up after being out in the cold.
Products to hydrate your skin
On the whole, my skin is usually quite oily, but this winter it’s really dried out with the cold weather. Nothing makes me feel worse than having dry and sore skin. This winter I’ve really been loving the Simple, Hydrating Gel Cream as well as the Origins, Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. These products have worked wonders for keeping my skin feeling healthy and hydrated.
A good TV series to watch
There’s nothing nicer than settling down for the evening on a cold winters night and watching a TV series. I’m currently watching Lost as I’ve never seen it before. I’m also watching Riverdale and How To Get Away With Murder. This is my favourite way to chill out and relax during the evening.
