My Winter Essentials 2016

Hello everyone,

Over the past few days the weather has become ridiculously cold all of a sudden here in the UK. There are people like me who are picky with the weather when it comes to the temperature. For example – if its too cold, it annoys me and makes me grumpy and I don’t love it. I like it to be semi cold. Not really really cold, but; somewhere in the 15s. Yes. 15 degrees.

Anyway. Today I want to share with you a few of my winter essentials which are absolutely necessary during the change from October to December.


The first one – of course, is a lovely warm cup of tea. Now, there are lots of different types of tea out there but I like to be very original and have a nice cup of Tetley’s. You can’t really go wrong in all honesty. And make sure you make it properly, the right way in the right order of steps. Tell me how you make your cup of tea in the comments. Let’s see who’s really doing it properly. 


The next essential is a little bit odd but when you read ahead you’ll understand why.

I am asthmatic (not majorly, don’t worry I won’t collapse on you), therefore I have to now start getting my flu jab. I also had this done last year as I found out I was asthmatic back then. In previous years I have found myself feeling absolutely rock bottom with colds and flu’s and viruses etc. Therefore having my flu jab done is an absolute necessity.

It may be a little odd for some people, but I promise it makes the cold and flu season much easier so you avoid getting ill.


My next essential is something I’ve not actually managed to get yet, and that is a scarf. I’m hoping to visit Primark within the next few days to go and get myself one. If I can’t find one in Primark I’ll end up in New Look and there is one in there I do quite like. Its navy blue and has white and red and black combined into it, but Primark ones are much more affordable.


After Bonfire Night for me, it means Christmas  is drawing nearer and we can finally start getting excited for it. During the winter months leading up to Christmas, I absolutely love to get fairy lights. I currently have a multicoloured pack in my room waiting to go on my little Christmas tree, and I also have some purple / pink fairy lights trailing around my bed cupboards. I love coming home and making my room feel cosy and warm just so I can block out the cold for a little while and concentrate on warming up.


Those are all my current essentials for Winter and I’ll be sure to do an updated one in about a month or so to see if I have any more (which I definitely will). As I said earlier on in the post, let me know how you make a cup of tea. Which way is the right way to make a cup of tea? We’ll find out! ?

Thank you all very much for reading and if you want to hear of my updated winter essentials in a few weeks – a month, don’t forget to follow my blog and join my little family 🙂

Much love,
