Cosy Nights, Fairy Lights && Tasty Bites

It's definitely that time of year where the nights are getting darker, the crisp air && cable knit jumpers come out to play. Especially in those few days between Christmas & New Year.
Personally, I absolutely love this time of year && it's the perfect excuse to get out the winter wardrobe and indulge in a cozy night in. I don't think you can beat having a girls cosy night in, so i dragged my best friend along to show you what we love to do.
No cosy night is complete without a film to watch. It can be whatever genre you want- if you're feeling really brave, throw a horror on. I prefer to find a classic film i know I love and get all cuddled up to watch it. Some of my favourite movies to watch around this time of year are:
top left 500 Days of Summer - top right Hocus Pocus
middle left When Harry Met Sally - middle right The Breakfast Club
bottom left Silver Linings Playbook - bottom right Good Will Hunting
Candles/ Fairy Lights
You can't have a cosy night in without some festive lighting. Whether it's your favourite candle or flicking on some fairy lights, the ambient lightening definitely makes the room feel a lot cosier which is perfect for those colder nights. I like to have a mix of coloured lights && some warm neutral, it can give a plain bedroom like mine such a cool vibe. I do like a little few candles lit, this time of year I love anything vanilla, lavender && winter.
Blankets/ Cosy Pjs
I'm a sucker for big duvets & blankets, so this is like heaven to me. I always have a spare blanket or two lying around near my bed. Even if you don't have a blanket, find your cosiest clothes/pjs && throw them on. As long as I'm snuggled under a duvet I am one happy girl.
Feast of food
Snacks are an essential to have out for a cosy night in. Sometimes i like to go for a soup, clutching a mug of warm sweet potato soup is my idea of heaven. You may want a selection of nibbles like nuts, fruit && crudités. At the moment i am loving having camembert with crusty bread && olives. It warms the soul && you can snack on it all night long.
I'm not saying you can't have a cosy night in with your own company but there's something about having someone to share it with. Whether it's your partner, your best friend or a sibling, having someone to cosy up with can make it so much more enjoyable. And if you're feeling really social invite a whole bunch of people over, get everyone to bring a movie/snacks && commence the cosy night binge session (these are my favourite). If not, grab your cat/dog, put your feet up && enjoy!

What do you do for the perfect cosy night in??
