I love being cosy. I know Spring is nearing us, but let’s be honest the weather is not getting that much better. The heating is still on, you’ve not sorted the garden out yet, spring is not here. So I still want to by lovely and cosy and warm and content. This is a safe haven where I am most happy and comfortable; curled up on the reclining chair with the fire on, candles flickering and preferably a howling gale or torrential rain on the window. It’s a lifestyle I am full on ready to embrace, and you can too for not that much money. That is until summer comes and I whinge that I’m too hot.
Until then, cosy is king and I’m happy to roll with it. So here are some tips, tricks and a few items to look into in order to transform any space, big or small, from a little bit soulless, to full of warmth and happiness.
Service interruption from Wes:
I tasted, deliberated and discussed these drinks with Amy over the last week or so. They’re great, and her review is mostly on the money… I just, as per usual, have a slight difference of opinion: The hot chocs are the hands down winners. I mean, the milkshakes are great and sugar free is greater but that mint and (this one is unfair because I’ve only tried it today without Amy present) hazelnut! Wow. I’m in love. Already placed my order for more (shhh, don’t tell Amy).
Head down towards the end of Amy’s musings for a chance to win a load of mugpod goodness! Woop.
George Clooney has made damn sure that Nespresso machines are all the rage with females everywhere. Having pride of place in the kitchen, the trendy little gadget will keep coffee running through the veins of any tired parent from dawn to dusk. However, what happens if you don’t fancy coffee? Turn the kettle on? Pssh. We’ve got a better idea.
Rather, the guys over at mugpods.com have a better idea. mugpods are the only UK distributor of Nespresso compatible pods that don’t contain the ‘C’ word (well, that’s a lie, they do have some coffee but that’s not what we’re interested in!) instead they offer four flavours of hot chocolate and three awesome flavours of sugar free milkshake. So now even the kids can get their fill of Clooney-approved goodness.
