Oh yeah! The nights are getting longer and the days are getting shorter, which means one thing… snuggle weather is coming! I for one, love the cooler seasons! I love spending time at home, looking out at the gloomy weather outside and snuggling up with NetFlix or a good book. It’s perfection, and this year I am doing it right!
There’s no better way to snuggle up than with a comfortable, luxurious pillow, so to get you snuggle ready the fine folk over at Sealy have given me two super cozy Nature’s Rest Pillows to give away to one of my lovely readers. Be sure to enter my giveaway at the end of this post. Trust me, you will want them in your life!
A Good Book
I’m dying to get into the debut novel from Joseph Knox called Sirens. Lee Child called it “Razor Sharp”, which sounds like the perfect thriller to sink my teeth into this winter. In front of the fireplace perhaps, or on a dark and gloomy night? It’s about a young, disgraced detective, caught stealing drugs from the evidence room and then blackmailed into going undercover.
The undercover operation sends him from the upper echelons of the super-rich to the low-life squalor of Manchester’s drug scene. He spends his nights tailing The Franchise, a sophisticated gang operating out of the city’s booming bar culture, but when David Rossiter, a powerful member of parliament, discovers that his runaway teenage daughter has turned up in their custody – everything changes.
Whether you’re cozing up on the couch, or getting your beauty rest, cute, comfy PJ’s are an absolute must! I wish I could wear PJ’s all day – every day! And it’s no wonder, with such cute two-pieces, like this Flannel set from H&M (R399).
I know flannel has had it’s moments, especially loved by lumberjacks – but this print is gorgeous for winter, and just looking at them makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
Cozy weather and candles go hand in hand and Autumn Night by Yankee Candle is a great scent to get you in the mood! Think brisk earthiness combined with dreamy lavender and woodland notes. Mmmmmm!
Now these slippers… they are like heaven for your feet! I bought a pair over Christmas (on sale from Cape Union Mart) and thought I’d save them for winter. But you know what, my feet could not resist their fluffiness until winter, so I’ve been wearing them a ton lately.
They are super soft inside and out and they are sooooo fluffy, you will die! They are made from faux fur with a leather patterned sole, so you can stroll around the house without slipping. Plus, you may just forget how comfy they are and fall asleep with them. Also, not a problem since they feel more like socks than shoes!

A comfy, snuggly, luxurious pillow is a must, and I love the Nature’s Rest Pillow from Sealy.
This 200 thread count, cotton percale quilted pillow is the best way to snuggle up! It’s finished with ‘Vital Protection’ that repels insects, including those nasty bed bugs and mozzies. Inside, it’s filled with 450g of Comferel to provide luxurious support, plus you get an extra 100g bag inside in case you want to fluff up your pillows a little more.
These are currently the pillows I have on my bed and I can say from experience that they are amazing! Do yourself a favour and invest in a good pillow and you will have good night and an even better morning waking up fresh and rested. Or, you could enter my giveaway -at the end of this post- and you might just be the lucky reader to get a set for yourself.
Blankets & Throws
Blankets and throws are my little indulgence over winter. Actually, if I’m being completely honest, I like a blanket even in summer. It just makes me feel cozy and comfy!
This Forest Woven Throw from Woolies look positively snuggle worthy! Those true autumn colours, knit and tassels make it so inviting! Wouldn’t you want one?
