October Favourites

 Hello there! I can't believe that it's already time for a round up of my monthly favourites, this month really has flown by. As it's getting a lot colder outside you may spy the theme of 'being cosy' to my favourites. If there is anything you would recommend along this theme, then of course I would like to hear about it! 

Shawl and Velvet Leggings

 My parents bought me this shawl from Scotland on one of their trips up there, and I have gotten a lot of use out of it this month. I love being able to wrap this round myself when I get a bit chilly, and that because it's big enough it can double as a blanket. It's great as you can put the 'sleeves' around your neck when you need to use your hands for washing up etc so you won't ruin it but can remain warm!
 Along the theme of being comfy and cosy, I had to include these velvet leggings from Primark as they've changed my life. They're thick leggings, and inside the material is velvet and I can't adequately tell you how comfy they are. My mum actually picked them up for me when her and my dad came to stay at the start of the month, as she knew I would absolutely love them. I love being able to come home after a long day at uni, and get changed into these with a comfy top. I wouldn't personally wear them out as I want to save them for more relaxing times, but I would highly recommend you pick up a pair!

Dressing Gown
 You'll have seen my dressing gown in my autumn essentials post, and I still love it as much as I did then. As it was getting colder I wanted a longer and cosier dressing gown, and this one from Next is perfect. I love being able to get up in the morning and put this on before going to make a cup of tea. It's also great for the evenings if you get a bit chilly. Just look at how cosy it is! 

Hot Squash
 Now as you know I am a lover of tea, but I've been having a mug of hot squash regularly this month. It's when I'm a bit chilly and I want some squash over tea, so I've been opting for a hot version. I know some people think this is a bit strange, but I would really recommend it, especially if you're someone who doesn't like tea/coffee but are a bit chilly and could do with a hot drink!

Strictly and Downton Abbey
 I have been loving TV at the weekend this month- both Strictly and Downton have returned! I used to really like Strictly when I was younger, but didn't watch it for a while until I got back into it this year. At the moment I really like Peter and Georgia- have you been watching it? Who do you like? Downton-wise I'm sad that this is the final series- will there be a christmas special?! I know a few people fell out of love with it after the first few series, and I can see how it did change, but I think this series is a lot better than the last one! So if you used to love Downton why not watch the final series? I wonder how they'll leave it?

 Although it's getting darker earlier, and is a bit colder outside, I do just love this time of year! What have you been loving throughout October?
