Chill day at home essentials *

Over the last 6 years or so, I’ve started spending most of my time at home. There’s a bunch of reasons for why this is which I’m not going to go into but going from a teenager who was basically never at home, to someone who spends most of their time there, it’s a pretty huge change. But sometimes you really can’t beat a day or an evening at home. Going to the cinema, to the zoo or out for a meal is all great fun but sometimes, a chill day and night at home without having to worry about going anywhere at all is absolutely ideal. Especially now the weather is getting colder and I’m sure chill homey days will become more common for a lot of people! Here are some of my absolute essentials for a perfect chill day at home!

Comfy clothes

It’s time to get your comfies on! There’s no-one to impress, no-where to go and nothing to dress up for so optimum comfort is a must when I’m staying at home. I’ll usually opt for leggings, which are my go-to in the Winter (literally you probably won’t see me in anything else but leggings from October until March!), cosy jumpers and fluffy socks are a must too. But underwear is also important because what’s underneath needs to be comfy too!

Recently I’ve been wearing the Magic Body Fashion Dream Braletteย * under my comfy clothes which makes a really fabulous change to underwire bras. They’re so comfy, are seamless and have a pretty crossover strap at the back to add a fashionable touch. They also come in a bunch of colours from Black, Rose, Snow White, Raspberry and Blueberry! (Pictured in the grey one which unfortunately is no longer available).


I try and do Yoga every day anyway (although I’ve been so rottenly ill throughout the end of September and beginning of October that it appears all my strength has disappeared!) but on a day where I know I’m not going anywhere or have anything to do outside the house, I always make extra time in the morning for my Yoga practices and opting for a longer or more high intensity practice!

A takeaway

A chill day at home always comes with a takeaway, it’s the perfect thing to look forward to in the evening to reach ultimate chill factor! My takeaways of choice are usually a Chinese (deep fried shredded chilli chicken, chips, rice and spring rolls!) or a Pizza Hut (the Vegetable or Hawaiian and pineapple does belong on pizza!) My boyfriend and I used to be devoted Dominos fans but then we gave Pizza Hut a try on a whim one evening and was so impressed and we haven’t gone back since. Plus, it’s much more affordable!

A good TV series

I’m a huge lover of TV series and I’d much rather get stuck into a series than a movie. Unless I really enjoy a movie, I find them hard to commit to and I prefer how much more we get to know and love (or hate) characters in TV series. We’re currently watching season 2 of Ozark on Netflix at the moment, starring Jason Bateman and I’d highly recommend it for any Breaking Bad fans! Other binge-worthy favourites of mine which are currently on Netflix are Orphan Black, American Horror Story, Grace and Frankie, Stranger Things, Dark and How to Get Away With Murder. Or the other option would always be Disney movies!

A tidy room, blankets, fairy lights and a hot water bottle

I can’t stand having a messy “space” when I’m spending all my time in it. I’m a very tidy person so my room stays clean more or less all the time anyway but I always make sure it stays that way during the day. Blankets are crucial are cosying up on the sofa with a cuppa and a book and fairy lights always make everything look that little bit prettier. I also wouldn’t be without my hot water bottle, especially in the colder months because I rarely put the heating on so a hot water bottle keeps me nice and toasty!

  9. Apart from the Yoga you pretty much described a chill day for me. There’s nothing like watching a good TV show or film, snuggled under cosy throws & blankets whilst enjoying a tasty takeaway.

  11. I am pretty much the same as you!! Although I do have a job, it is as a softball coach which means I wear sweats all day long. When I have a day off it is all about catching up on shows. I enjoy shows over movies as well. Ozarks is amazing, btw!! Maybe someday I will be motivated enough to start yoga at home as well!

    1. Weโ€™ve almost finished season 2 and my GOD ITS SO GOOD! You should definitely give Yoga a try ๐Ÿ™‚
