5 ways to stay warm this Autumn!

Howdy folks. It feels like since the calendar flicked into October the whole of social media has tipped into autumn. Like all the Autumn, everywhere. 
Whether you love it or loath it, it's undeniable that Autumn is a season with a character all of its own. 
One undeniable part being the weather soon turns bloody miserable! 
Don't despair, today post is some handy tips on how to stay warm and cosy throughout the cooler months!
1. Layers: I'm not gonna lie, if you tell me you're cold when you've only got a Tshirt on then expect eye rolls. One of the main purposes of clothes is to keep us warm, and it's the perfect to roll out a load of thick cosy knitwear that's been absent during the sunny season
2.Hot water bottles: literally the granniest  thing you may ever own but when you're frets are toasty you seriously won't care.
3. Wheat packs: so this kind of comes under hot water bottles but I felt they deserved their own category. Why? Because they're even easier to use! Bing one in the microwave and hey presto instant heat with no need to remember to empty it.
4. Hot beverages: Even if you're not into the seasonal specialties hot drinks really come into their own this time of year. If your not a big tea or coffee drinker why not rustle up some extravagant hot chocolate? Or even keep it simple with a hot water and lemon? So soothing and refreshing.
5. Electric blanket: even though this came second in the granny stakes it's still one of the best things I've ever bought. If you're not sure what I'm on about, it's basically a mat that goes under your covers sheet in bed that HEATS up. Diving into a ready for snoozing bed is just downright awesome. I picked mine up from Argos a while back and it's always been great. They're designed to be left on over night and most are even washable! 

There we have it, a few useful tips to stay toasty! Now I actually use all of these for the specific purpose of avoiding putting the heating on. Last year we made it to November before we needed and in determined to do better this year!
