Make staying at HOME the new going out this autumn

Staying in is the new going out - here are our 5 ways to make staying at HOME  this autumn exactly what you need.

Crisp bright mornings, red wine and trees cloaked in gold – autumn is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful times of the year. With seasonal changes pending, many of us will feel like September marks a fresh start – the school year cycle we just cannot seem to shake!  

So whether it’s ‘autumn’ cleaning your HOME, preparing for a more active routine at the office or with your family, or escaping into the pages of a beach novel to extend that summer vibe – we've got something for you. Let’s recentre, reorganise and refresh this month...  

Stay in and reignite your kitchen skills 

Whether lockdown led to your calling in the kitchen or not, eating mouth-watering food should always be on the cards. When we saw this incredible ‘Stuffed Courgette Flower’ recipe with our friends over at The Handbook we had to share it with you. Whilst cooking with Le Cordon Bleu London isn’t on everyone’s wish list, this recipe will no doubt tickle your tastebuds. Perfect for a Dinner Party or a late summer BBQ! Click here to get cooking.

Escape back to summer with this sensational read 

Summer holidays sadly haven’t been on the cards for many of us, and so, what better way to escape than with a trip to 1980s Malibu. Cliff-side homes, crashing waves, lush white sands and the pure joy of surfing. Ride the waves of Taylor Jenkins-Reid’s latest novel and get sucked into decades of the Riva family’s tantalising history. You’ll be researching surfing lessons before you know it. Click here to get a copy of Malibu Rising.

Re-organise your HOME like you mean it 

It’s the perfect time to get organised – forget spring cleaning, we’re ready for an autumn organisation. That’s right, clear out your HOME and get your gear inline. Start the new season right with HOME organisation inspired by Marie Kondo. You can even watch her new show “Sparking Joy” on Netflix from 31st August to get you truly inspired.

Re-centre with these calming yoga sessions 

Whilst we’ve craved getting back in touch with friends and family, many plans can feel overwhelming when you’re not used to it. Spend some time reconnecting with yourself through calming and re-centring activities.  We love Yoga with Adriene’s Nurture playlist on YouTube, each session is designed to help you recentre and find balance ahead of a week at work and the ongoing uncertainty in the world - Click here for Energy Practice - Yoga With Adriene.

Quench your thirst with our mixologists 

Picture this. The autumn weather is gorgeous, there’s a weekend ahead and you’ve invited your closest friends and family to relax with a drink in hand. BUT you are stressed about which drinks to serve? Your mixology skills are not up to scratch. Fear not, we've got the solution for you. Choose from our range of talented mixologists here, to come and take charge of the bar.
