Essentials for gettin’ cozy this fall

When the weather gets colder and dreary and the sun starts to set earlier, it’s the best feeling in the world to just cuddle up and be cozy-especially with the person you love the most! Although thats super wonderful in itself, there are a few things that make curling on those crisp chilly days a little better- things that I can’t get enough of this time of year, and totally help set the Fall mood.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good candle all year round, however I find myself lighting it daily during the colder months. Theres something about the ambiance that a candle creates that sets the mood and makes curling up soothing and dreamy.

Some people have their favourite fall scents, I’m not a huge fan of the apple/cinnamon scent (I know I know I’m super weird) which seems to be the most popular. I just burn whatever I have on hand, I typically have candles in bulk (my girlfriend always makes sure the house is stocked) and they are more than usually from Yankee Candle or Bath and Body Works!

Fluffy fuzzy blankets

My girlfriend would tell you that I have a blanket addiction, but I say that you can never have too many fluffy throws. I have at least two throw blankets on my couch at all times, one at the end of my bed, two in the Papasan chair, and my animals even have their own blankets in their bed.

You can’t get cozy without a soft blanket to curl up in to keep you warm, because being cold is so not ideal- especially when it’s already so cold and nippy outside. Also, what is better than being surrounded by something so plush, soft, and fuzzy?

The right lighting

Speaking of the ambiance of candles, the right lighting can create the perfect vibe for getting cozy. I happen to have the cutest decor that is also soft lighting, and it is not only aesthetically pleasing but definitely sets the mood.

Think fairy lights, string lights, salt lamps, lava lamps– you know where I’m going with this. Anything but the overhead light thats often way too bright for the cozy vibe that you’re going for.

Cozy sweats

Again, just like a candle, I love a good pair of oversized cozy sweats all year round but I find myself throwing them on more often during these cold, bitter months.

Thankfully, my girlfriend has an impeccable sweatshirt collection, and she knows how to keep them super soft so obviously my stealing them has been a thing in our relationship since day one.

Moral of this story- steal your significant others sweatshirts, and then cuddle up with them this cozy fall.
