Switching the lights off is the easy part, switching your mind off can prove altogether more complicated. Tossing and turning, unable to fall asleep night after night is frustrating and can negatively impact your day. Equally, the day you’ve had can negatively impact your sleep cycle. Making just a few small changes to your daily routine can help you to get the shut-eye you desperately crave (and no, we’re not going to suggest counting sheep).
It’s official, we’re in the fiery depths of autumn, and from the looks of things, there’s no going back anytime soon. The wind’s blowing, the leaves are golden, suddenly an umbrella has become something we can’t leave the house without “just in case”, but it’s time to embrace it! That’s right, we’re immersing ourselves in all things autumn, and do you know what? It’s not all that bad! Snuggly blankets, all the reality TV you could possibly watch, and even better – the perfect excuse to get crafty! With Halloween just around the corner, there are plenty of little ways to prep your home for the season!

So here are my 10 steps to the perfect Autumn night in to help ease you into these chilly evenings!

Don’t leave your home fragrance in the house, it makes a great car companion!
Some car air fresheners lose their scent after a matter of weeks, offering a quick burst of fragrance on the day of purchase before rapidly fading to nothing. It’s time to get scent savvy.

An increasingly popular method of home fragrance, reed diffusers breathe a constant release of scent into your home. Unlike scented candles, reed diffusers require little to no supervision, simply set them up and they’ll take care of themselves, ensuring that you and your guests are always greeted by fresh and beautiful fragrance.
