winter is all about the comfort food. carbs & sugar are basically my life at this time of year. on these increasingly cold, damp, blustery nights when the thought of leaving the house is just too much to bear there’s a clear solution: hit up your mate JUST EAT (ok, takeaway is never going to be the healthiest option in the world but we all need a bit of natural insultation for the winter & sometimes you’ve just got to treat yourself).
as big advocates of the cosy night in, my fella & i have got it down to a fine art so here are some of our tips for making the most of your much-deserved down-time:
step 1: food
order your grub. on this occasion we went for indian, our absolute favourite, with an enormous platter of poppadoms, bhajis, puri, tandoori chicken, lamb xacuti, saag paneer, rice & naan bread (oh my!).
step 2: get cosy
put on some cute nightwear (i love this london-print pj set) & grab a snuggly blanket. pop on a face mask or reach for the mani/pedi kit, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous.
step 3: viewing material
dim the lights & cue up a dvd or 5. we usually compromise with a his & hers mix but at this time of year it has to be the ultimate crowd-pleaser that is elf, amiright?
step 4: indulge
there goes the doorbell, time to enjoy your delicious delivery! then, later on, treat yourself to a hot chocolate (with all the trimmings of course) out of a cute little cup or, as christmas is less than 2 weeks away, a generous glass of mulled wine.
how do you spend your cosy wintery nights in? happy saturday!
