Bonsoir of London Blue Paisley GownSomething I adore about this time of year, is how everyone's attention turns to comfort.  It's all about how best to keep warm, stay cosy and achieve a general sense of wellbeing.  I'll be the first to admit I get ahead of myself with the seasons, which lately has resulted in curling up on the sofa watching Christmas films (oops), surrounded by candles.  But the question is, how can we embrace this season? Using the weekend as an example - it both starts and ends at home.  Things tend to quieten down on the social front between now and the festive season, providing the perfect excuse to indulge in a very, very gentle weekend...

Okay, moving on to the widespread favourites.  Fur throws and fleece blankets are a must and it doesn't hurt to have a magazine to hand, for that early morning inspiration.  Muffled soft music can also add to the ambience, drifting in from another room.  I've currently got my eye on the new Panasonic CD speakers that function as multi-room speakers for CD, radio and smartphone - something that's shot to the top of my wishlist since rediscovering an old Britney CD of her greatest hits (don't lie, you love her too).  Oh and needless to say, I'm a huge fan of luxurious nightwear and loungewear; with Bonsoir of London quickly becoming one of my favourite go-to brands for those special finds (see Luxe Getaway | 6 Ways To Indulge from this past summer) - scroll down for details on this silk and paisley look!

There really is something beautiful about completely immersing yourself in a new season.  I dread the thought of not having totally 'embraced' a season, though thankfully there's one million and one different ways to throw yourself into A/W - so there's no chance of missing out!  Which reminds me, candles.  Because is it even Autumn if you're not stockpiling warm and woody scents?!  A couple of my current favourites include Cire Trudon's Scented Christmas Candle and Neom's Christmas Wish 3 Wick Scented Candle.  Spot the theme....
