Cosy Autumn Evening Routine | #Blogtober day 2

As the evenings start getting darker and darker some people can feel the blues coming on and being someone who suffers from anxiety myself, I always try to create as much of a relaxing atmosphere and routine as possible towards the end of the day.

The first thing I do when I come through the front door is go straight to the kitchen for a cup of tea! I usually drink PG Tips or Twinings (the decaf versions of course) or a cup of Pukka's Chamomile, Manuka Honey and Vanilla tea.

I like to eat very light in the evening. If I'm really hungry I'll have a bowl of cereal. For a light snack I'll just have a cereal bar. If it's my period and I'm treating myself then it'll be some chocolate or pizza lol!

I get changed into my favourite dressing gown, fluffy socks and slipper boots. My hair goes up in a messy bun. Scented candles are lit (Apple Cinnamon and Mulberry by Glade and Mulled wine by Air Wick are my favourites at the moment. They are so affordable, smell gorgeous and last quite a while) and I either scroll through Netflix or browse Youtube.

I also check social media to reply to any messages and retweet/read some blog posts. 

Some evenings I'll just stay like this for a while then get my things ready for the morning before I hit the hay. I also have a bedtime routine which I'll include in a future post. 

On other evenings I'll head upstairs to the bathroom for either a good soak in a bath full of bubbles or a quick shower then I'll come back downstairs and chill for a while with my candles, social media and a movie or some youtube videos till it's time to get ready for bed.

I find scented candles so relaxing but I also like fairy lights too. I'm a big fan of soft, relaxing lighting in a room. I think it really sets the scene and can help relax you. 


Well, that's my autumn evening routine. It isn't glitz and glam but it's relaxing and certainly does the trick for me after a cold, stressful day. What's does your autumn evening routine involve? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me at: @CaledonianTweet
