Afternoon Tea (NM) - A Cuppa and Dressing Gown Day

Autumn brought with it the cooler weather, falling leaves, wind, rain and just everything I love to be honest with you. I dug out my dressing gown long before Autumn was here but today's post is all about the perfect dressing gown and cuppa day! Whether you are a mamma, student, working hard or just in need of a little self-care a cosy Autumn day is perfect for you.

I'm going to start off by saying the only way to have the perfect cosy Autumn day is to put on your biggest and fluffiest dressing gown and a giant cuppa! A cosy Autumn day isn't cosy if a dressing gown and cuppas aren't involved! Now that's cleared up let us see what the less important things that you need are!

A cosy Autumn day can be anything you make it, a film marathon day, hot chocolate and baking with your friends, a journaling/planning day or even reading a book and watching the rain. This post is going to be a little bit longer as I thought I would break down each suggestion into its own little heading.

Film Marathon Day:

This would be my first choice if I've had a long week at uni and I'm in need of some me time not really thinking about anything. The things I would suggest are...

- Blankets and fluffy socks 
- Crisps, popcorn, sweets and chocolate
- Netflix, DisneyLife or even your favourite DVDs
- Lots of pillows and cushions 
- A cuddle buddy if you have one

Baking Day:

This is my favourite thing to do when the cold weather starts to hit us full force. It's also perfect if you and your flatmates or even friends have had a busy busy week with not much time to catch up or speak to each other. The main things I would suggest are...

- Ingredients for baking your favourite cake or brownies
- Music
- Board games 
- Maybe a little bit of alcohol is ya feeling fancy 
- Lazy clothes 

Journaling/ Planning Day:

I feel like these days are perfect for students and mamma's or even when life is a bit hectic and you need to get everything down. I feel like this is going to be a big list of suggestions...

- A notebook/ diary (new or one you are currently using)
- Coloured pens
- Stickers
- Washi tape
- Post-it notes
- Paper clips
- Pencils
- Relaxing music 
- A comfy spot such as a desk with a nice comfy chair filled with lots of pillows and blankets

Reading a Book with the Rain:

This is one of my favourite things to do when I have had a pretty chilled out week at uni when I'm not reading lots and can actually sit down to enjoy reading again. This little list is probably going to be the shortest...

- A book of your choice
- Pencil or highlighters if you annotate books
- Blankets
- Candles
- A cosy spot near a window if it's raining so you can watch or listen to the rain outside
