Sometimes when you've had a long and tiring week or you're just having one of those days the best thing to do is to have a chilled evening and a cosy night in. So before we start; take off your make-up and get in your favourite PJS, along with some super snuggly bed socks or slippers and I'm going to share with you some of the essentials for a cosy night in.

Set the mood
light some candles, put on a few lamps (avoid big ceiling lights), put on the fire and turn on your fairly lights - if you have them of course, do anything that makes the place you are going to be taking resident for the evening as cosy and relaxing as possible whether its your bedroom, living room or somewhere else.

A Lovely Hot Drink
Nothing relaxes me more than a nice hot drink whether it be a cup of tea or a hot chocolate laced with whipped cream and marshmellows, it makes me all warm and lovely inside and for me is an essential to a cosy night in - now if your day as been particularly stressful and you are of age you could swap the hot drink for an alcoholic beverage!

Food and Some Naughty Tasty Treats
No night is completely without some food; so make your favourite meal or order your favourite takeout (definitely the latter, treat yourself) and don't forget some naughty treats for afters - chocolate, cake, crisps, popcorn, ice cream, sweets - whichever you prefer and lets face it, everyone loves a good sugary treat!

Blanket
This isn't an essential i guess but if you're gonna be cosy you may as well go all out, right? So blanket is it, get all snug and cosy and lazy! In winter especially, extra layers are a necessity.

Movies, Tv Shows or Books
Whether you prefer to read a book, catch up on TV shows or just have a good ole movie night, a cosy night in just isn't complete without - however, make sure you plan ahead because sometimes deciding on a movie can take just as long as watching one!
