(Ad - Gifted) What you need for a cosy night in!

I am heading towards my 40th birthday and I am at an age now where nights out are far too much effort and are really overrated! The faff of finding something nice to wear, getting ready, finding somewhere to go which doesn't cost a small fortune and then being ready to come home by 10pm. lol

Items marked with ** were sent to me free of charge to feature in this blog post.

 At my age I would much rather spend a cosy evening in, having a bit of a pamper, soaking in the bath, burning a candle, getting in my pj's, having something nice to eat and drink and watching a box set or a good film.

A good pamper session needs a face mask and I have a new one to try. The **T-Zone Glitter Mask Peel Off - Silver. 

It draws out impurities to help keep skin clear. Enriched with skin caring Strawflower and firming Centella Asiatica Extract, to help the skin look more vibrant and glowing. Costing around £2.99 it is a lovely treat!

A bath of course needs a bath bomb and in my opinion the best come from Lush. The Snow Fairy one and the Intergalactic bath bombs are my favourites. Costing £4.95 they are a little expensive but they are a once in a blue moon treat!

When I'm soaking in the bath I do like to burn a candle. At this time of year I seem to notice candles more as they are an Autumn and Winter thing.

The **Handmade Jade Orchid & Lotus Blossom Scented Candle from Perfect4U costing just £5.90 would be perfect accompaniment to a soak in the bath.

The handmade Jade Orchid & Lotus Blossom Scented Candle has a beautiful, fresh and relaxing fragrance of indulgent orchid which is freshened with bergamot, leading into a heart of oriental lotus blossom spiced with cinnamon and cradling on a base of musk and vanilla.

Comfy pj's are a must. I love the pyjama sets from Primark and the fleecy one's are my favourites! They are so cheap too. You can get a decent set for about £12. I have my eyes on a couple of sets which I am hoping to get for my birthday in a few weeks. hehehe

For something to drink when I am having a full on treat night I want something a little different than my usual wine. The **Tomatin Scotch Whisky fits the bill perfectly! It is a Single Malt made by Tomatin Distillery in Scotland with 43% of alcohol strength.

The Tomatin Legacy derives its unique flavour from both virgin oak and bourbon casks. The young entry-level Tomatin is fresh and flavourful, with a crisp citrus nose and mellow palate.

There of course has to be something sweet too. I love this time of year because all the Christmas chocolates are on the shelves. I think my top 3 are Quality Street Fruit Cremes, the classic Terry's Chocolate Orange and After Eight mints!

What do you like to have on a cosy night in?
