I’m so excited that we are now in Autumn as it’s my favourite season although I do miss the longer days and lighter evenings in the summer but I love that I can see the leaves changing colour, it makes my heart happy as well as cosy jumpers, fluffy socks and all the hot drinks. I just love everything about it. Scrolling through social media it’s quite clear that a lot of people love Autumn.
Here are my reasons of why I love Autumn so much..
Who doesn’t love long walks?! I think there’s just something refreshing about taking some time out to go on long walks, the fresh air, walking through all the crunchy leaves on the floor. It gives you the perfect time to just relax. I also love taking my camera out and getting some shots because nature is super pretty and as a blogger I can’t miss taking some photo’s outdoors in natural light.
I’m an October baby so when Autumn rolls around I know it’s not long to wait until my birthday. EXCITING.
It’s strange that even though the leaves are dying off, they look so beautiful. I love that I can see the leaves constantly changing colour, I think it makes everywhere just look super pretty. We have quite a few big trees at the bottom of our garden and I couldn’t be happier with seeing all the different colours on them all. I remember the excitement when I was younger and saw the biggest pile of leaves and jumped in, that was the best feeling. If you read about what I got up to in New York, you will know how obsessed I am with the city. I can just imagine how pretty Central Park would be in Autumn, that’s definitely a reason why I need to go back.. Again.
I absolutely love Bonfire Night, I love the feeling of being all wrapped up in a massive coat and big scarf, standing outside and looking up at the sky watching all the pretty fireworks as well as standing next to a bonfire to keep warm. Oh and how could I nearly forget.. Sparklers! The last couple of years I haven’t been outside I just watched the fireworks from inside but this year I’m determined to get outside and enjoy the night.
Cosy indoor days
There’s no better excuse for a duvet day than when the weather is rubbish. A massive throw, candles, a good movie, lots of chocolate and your pyjamas, how can you can go wrong? Definitely one of my favourite things to do all year round as well.
Hot drinks from Costa
OMG. The best hot drinks come from Costa later in the year. The white hot chocolate though?! I’ve never been a fan of anything pumpkin spice that everyone raves about, I’m just fine with a hot chocolate and lots of cream with little marshmallows. Plus the themed cups from Costa and Starbucks are the cutest.
Honestly, this is my favourite thing about autumn haha. I literally live in jumpers as I’m always cold so I have an excuse to buy more. Nothing can beat wrapping up in a big cosy jumper.
To be honest I love bonfire night more than Halloween, I don’t know why I just find it a bit over hyped. I loved getting dressed up when I was younger to go trick and treating with friends, carving pumpkins and eating all the sweets and chocolate but now I don’t celebrate it too much. Maybe that’ll change this year, we’ll see..
I put a tweet out saying I was obsessed with buying candles recently and how someone needed to stop me. Guys, it’s becoming a problem but I just love how they make a room super cosy and smell amazing. Although I tend to light candles throughout the year I definitely step up my game from September onwards. I keep telling myself you can never have enough haha
With the colder weather, you can’t beat some comfort food. The chill in the air provides the perfect excuse to have a bowl of homemade soup.
Lush addict over here. I always look forward to when Lush releases there new bath bombs and I can’t wait to pick up some up. I’m pretty sure I will be needing to buy a massive basket or something soon to put all of my Lush products in as they are taking over my room..
One of my main reasons why I love when Autumn comes around is that I know Christmas is coming.. Okay, I won’t start going on about Christmas just yet.
