midweek wishlist: winter essentials
001. Twinings Calm Camomile, Honey & Vanilla Tea £1.29 - 002. Petite Military Coat - Topshop - 003. Autumn Leaves Candle - Yankee Candle - 004. Wonderland Set - Models Own - 005. Amber Stud Strap Zip Boots - Topshop
Winter Blues are setting in over at the Honey Hut (that's the name of our student home, named after the fact we have the only bright yellow door on a street lined with dull brown entrances), it's not a pretty sight with sniffling and coughing galore. We're all dosing up on Lempsip Max in the hope of banishing beastly coughs and splutters and so in order to cheer ourselves up we run afternoon movie sessions (mainly Disney or romcom, come on we're a house full of sick girls) and tea runs to try and liven our spirits whilst still trying to not let Uni work slip out of control. The obvious essentials would include medicine, Kleenex tissues, and a hot water bottle but I thought I would compile a wishlist of the not so essential essentials that can bring a smile to any soul suffering the dreaded flu...

Adding honey to our tea has been a savior to the throat as it acts as a natural soother and so, whilst adding items to my online Asda shop, Twinings Calm Camomile, Honey & Vanilla Tea is right up there on the top of my list! Us honey's are avid collectors of all things tea related with our own tray housing an assortment of fruit and herbal teas ready to get us through.  I've also been on the look out for a new winter coat and khaki green's are what I tend to eye up on every occasion and would go very nicely indeed with the burgundy topshop boots that have been in my basket awaiting bursary day...

I've recently stocked up on some autumnal scents to add that little touch (or should I say, smell!) of home to my room by completing an order to Yankee. I picked up two candles, one of which I might give to my mum for Christmas, I'm not sure yet, it really does smell delicious; which I will be putting a post up about very soon, so keep those eyes peeled!

Is your household becoming bogged down with cough and cold? What little treats do you like to cheer you up when you're feeling a little under the weather?
