It’s Finally Time to Hide Under the Blanket

Winter has finally hit the UK!

After a heatwave during Halloween the rain has swiftly returned and the temperature has finally plummeted.

I don’t know about you, but all I want to do today is climb under my throws and onto my bundle of cushions and play Sims4!

I’m a big fan of patterns cushions and throws but I tend to stick to subtle colours. I also love materials that are soft to the touch too as I seriously despise rough fabric and scratchy clothes ever since I’ve been little.  I’m really liking the warm wraps below 🙂

Also, I usually have my windows wide open and let the cool and fresh air circulate the room on purpose. This is so that I can snuggle up and get all cosy and warm under my thick cotton blankets – does anyone else do that or is it just me? hehe.
