The current pandemic has seen us being much more grateful about owning our own spaces, and of course finding the best possible ways of how to make the most of this. I absolutely love the autumnal months. In my opinion, it’s the only occasion where you can put a little time aside to be completely and unapologetically cosy. However, for those of you who are stuck for ideas on what to do this “Cosy Season”, Rachy is here to help you! So without further ado; Here are my 5 ways to stay cosy this Halloween Season;
When is it not the perfect outdoor weather for lighting a candle? Especially for us Brits!
Candles have always been a firm staple in the Rachy household, as I find they help to bring the outdoors in, as well as (you know, the obvious!) – smelling absolutely amazing! And this year we are thoroughly spoilt for choice this season with shops selling their go-to, autumnal favourites, perfect to help bring in the all-important cosy.
My favourite candles have to be from Yankee. I love them as they go above and beyond their customer’s expectations of candles. Their collections are vast and range from weird to wonderful, and subtle (for those who want it) catering to all, especially in the spooky months.
Just light one up and let the cosy ambience burn!
Not that you need a reason to binge-watch anything nowadays, but if you’re struggling or lacking inspiration on what you should be watching (if you haven’t already) then here are a few tame spooky season faves;
Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas
It’s no surprise that I’ve been loving my kitchen! (My Instagram is literally full of granite – and I make no apologies! It’s my kitchen of dreams!)
However, with the darker nights and cooler days settled in, we now (more than ever) have the perfect excuse to use them! By either making something truly delicious to munch on whilst chilling in front of the fire or concoct something “wonderfully-flavoured” and warm to sip on while making the best of your indoor space.
My favourite, most-made recipe for this being Gnom-Gnom’s Cheesecake Brownies!
But not limited to..
Completely versatile and ultimately, delicious!
It goes without saying that Halloween would not be Halloween without a little pumpkin carving. And with the internet gracing us with lots of ideas of what to carve into your pumpkin this year, there are no excuses NOT to join in.
Just because trick-or-treating is officially banned this year doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate it for our family or little ones. Over the years Jacob has accumulated a large collection of spooky outfits, and you can be sure that he’ll be wearing one on that Halloween day to eat his dinners and watch his spooky films. Life’s too short not to make the most of every event or occasion, lockdown or not.
