There’s never been a better time to hunker down, chill out and put your feet up with a film and your favourite treats. We caught up with Karina of @StyleIdealist who shared how she likes to make movie night in a stylish affair - queue the coolest PJs, soft snuggly blankets and the perfect fury film companion!

Sometimes it’s hard to separate work and home, but over the last few months my living room has become my solace after a hard day’s work spent in my office upstairs. I have a rule to try and not sit on the sofa during the day in a working week, so I don’t get distracted by TV and Netflix. This means that at the end of a working day movie nights are extra special and most importantly, relaxing!

As my husband, Pete, works long hours, it’s a great opportunity to snuggle down with my cockapoo Cooper and relax on the sofa watching the films my husband usually hates! Tonight I’m watching She’s The Man with Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum – a classic noughties teen film which is based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. It’s hilarious, easy to watch and just an all-round, feel-good film which is always the perfect remedy after a long day.

Is it even a movie night if there’s no popcorn? The same (rhetorical) question also applies to glass of wine! Pete usually joins me halfway/towards the end of the movie, once he’s finished work so I make sure to have a glass poured ready for him! I’m such a crier when it comes to watching films; I swear I’ve cried whilst watching Freaky Friday before. My most annoying habit is I’m a chatter, I’ll ask a million questions all the way through - which drives my husband mad.

Get cosy! Get the chunkiest, fluffiest blanket you can find so you can get really cosy and snuggle during the film. I love the Frosted Sherpa Throw Blanket – it’s so soft!
