My Bonfire Night Essentials




Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and...
trying to smile while you’re freezing.


Bonfire Night has never really been a massive exciting time for me, I'm a massive Halloween lover and I'm pretty sure on my blog in the past I've mentioned that when I was a little girl, my Grandad used to light a massive fire on Halloween and we would all sit around it whilst he told us ghost stories - so for me Halloween and Bonfire Night were kind of celebrated on the same night. Also my family have always had animals when I was growing up and most of my Bonfire Nights were spent at home watching movies really loudly and comforting them, which I didn't mind at all. So just for this blog post lets pretend I do celebrate Bonfire Night on the actual day it's on and I'll share with you some of my essentials for when I'm sitting around a Bonfire on Halloween.

My Coat and Scarf I need something to keep me from being freezing cold and soaking wet.

Fluffy Socks and Boots Fluffy socks is one of my favourite things about autumn time.

Hot Chocolate I love having a hot chocolate whilst sitting around a Bonfire.

Sparklers I don't care if I sound five years old, writing my name with sparklers never gets old!

My Family Having my family around my on Bonfire night is the best thing about it all.


I hope you all enjoyed reading this blog post, and please stay safe this Bonfire night.
I hope you all have a really wonderful time whatever it is you're all up to.

With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  1. Never forget a jacket! Just because the fire is warm doesn't mean you'll be standing in it! I always love having hot chocolate and some good food. My friend recently discovered some item to put in the fire to make the flames change colors and it's so cool to see! (: Thanks for sharing this.

  12. I've noticed lots of people drink mulled wind to warm them up at bonfires, but it seems too early for that! I'd much prefer a hot choccie, like you. I did have a hot cider on Saturday though, and that was lovely!

  14. Such a great post, I love bonfire night and have just wrote a post about it myself. Although the freezing cold can be a pain I think it can add to the feel of Bonfire Night http://everydayadventure365.blogspot.co.uk/

  15. Ahh I missed seeing the fireworks this bonfire night because it was so rainy, and because it was being held in a park, I didn't fancy standing around in mud - I don't even own wellies! I do love a good firework show though, gets me all emotional because I feel like a Disney princess, hahaha. Hot chocolate is a must right now, I'm not a big fan of tea or coffee so it's definitely my go-to this season :)
