    THE BEST WAYS TO KEEP WARM THIS BONFIRE NIGHT

    November 5th - Bonfire Night! Not only does today's date mean fireworks, but it also means we are OFFICIALLY entering the BEST time of year. It's time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, (faux) fur coats and Christmas music (can you tell I'm excited for December 25th already?). I love this stretch from Bonfire Night up until Christmas and going out to watch a display is one of my favourite ways to truly kick of winter celebrations!

    Now, whether you're planning to get cosy and watch the fireworks from the comfort of your sofa, or you're heading out to a display, I've rounded up the perfect ways to get you warm this Bonfire Night!
    REMEMBER YOUR LAYERS
    If you're planning to head to a display, you need to wrap up warm! It's suddenly got SO cold, so if you're braving the elements to go stand in a field for a few hours, you're going to need to master the art of layering! A turtle-neck body, under some thick black leggings with a cosy knit jumper and my trusty teddy coat is my go-to look for keeping warm. Team that with a pair of heavy duty biker boots and a beret and you're good to go!

    KEEP YOUR FINGERS AND TOES TOASTY
    My secret weapon for keeping my hands warm when I'm outdoors? HotHands. They're single use heat pads which are designed for keeping your fingers and toes warm in the cold! You just open the pack, then they start to heat as soon as they're exposed to the air - within 10-20 minutes, you've got yourself a nice warm little bean-bag that will keep you toasty for most of the evening! You can buy them from Amazon for around £7.50 for two packs of five and are an absolute life-saver when you're standing out in the cold!
    HAVE A COMFORTING DINNER
    Autumn dinners are the best. They're stodgy, comforting and perfect for warming you from the inside when it gets chilly! On Bonfire Night, there's no better dinner than Chilli Cheese Hot Dogs! Gather all your mates, get a big pan of chilli on the go and pile up your hot dogs while you enjoy the fireworks! Proper winter warmer food!
    BREW YOURSELF A WINTER WARMER
    Talking of winter warmers - Bonfire Night usually marks the first Mulled Wine of the season for me but if you're looking for a good alcohol free alternative (because Monday is a School night after all), go for a luxurious hot chocolate, piled high with whipped cream and marshmallow. Perfect for keeping you toasty from the inside!

    What are you plans for Bonfire Night?
