The winter months are always so long, they seem to start earlier and earlier. Of course they don’t however it sometimes seems that way. During the winter months I love nothing more than trying to achieve that hygge feeling of cosiness, fire, candles, hot drinks, warm blankets and great book.
After a cold day, nothing is better than coming home and putting our log burner on. Then after the children are tucked up in bed nice and warm getting changed into my pj’s and a super soft dressing gown and enjoying a good book.
Cosy items from Damart.
Damart recently sent me a gorgeous dressing gown and slippers to help me on my quest to find the perfect cosy evening.
When they arrived I couldn’t wait to get the children to bed nice and early, get my new book out and have a read. Getting the dressing gown out of the package I was really impressed with how soft and cuddly it was. I love the grey and the floral pattern within the fabric, it is also really quite long on me, but I do really like that for a dressing gown. As I am only 5 foot it was to be expected really.
To go with the dressing gown I was also asked to choose a pair of slippers. I love slippers and wear them all year round. And I even take them round to friends and families houses to keep my feet toasty warm while out and about. I even took them on our recent trip to Lapland.
I often opt for a ballet slipper style, something that quite cheap normally as I seem to go through slippers quite quickly. It doesn’t help, I guess that I wear them outside to take to rubbish out and then to hand washing out. This time I opted for a pair of moccasin slippers in a lilac colour. I have never had moccasin slippers before, but they looked really warm and comfy. Plus they come with a rubber sole so should be more hard wearing, which is just what I need.
My cosy evening
We managed to get the children to bed nice and early. Having already put the log burner on earlier in the afternoon, it meant that the living room was already nice and cosy.
I got changed into my pj’s, put on my lovely new dressing gown and slippers. I then made us an indulgent hot chocolate each and got my book out.
Blissful, cosy and warm. It was so lovely to enjoy a couple of hours of relaxing in front of our log burner, all toasty and warm with a great book. I cannot wait to have another evening like this. I think we should all take that bit of extra time for ourselves to relax.
*Thank you Damart for helping with my evening of cosiness. As always thoughts and opinions are my own.*
