Things I love about Autumn

autumn things

Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer sunshine (when it actually shines!) but Autumn is just all kinds of pretty. From crunchy leaves under foot, to extra layers, fresh and chilly mornings, dark and cosy nights. Candles burning, heart warming foods and wearing fluffy socks to bed. There are so many things to love about Autumn, here’s a few of my favourites;

Halloween - Be it a fancy dress party or a night of gorging on sweets with the lights out and as many scary films as you can get through, I love halloween. I really want to decorate the house for the festivities and I’m dying to actually, finally, for the first time in my life - carve a pumpkin!

Bonfire Night - I love fireworks! I’m not sure what display I’m going to this year but I’ll be there in the middle of the field, wellies on, wrapped up warm, munching on some treacle toffee and looking for someone to light my sparkler!

Cosy nights in  - Nothing beats wrapping up in a thick blanket and curling up on the couch when it’s cold and blustery outside. The wind whistling past, the rain against the windows, I’d take a night in over traipsing across town bar to bar at this time of year!

Warm everything - No more cold breakfasts of cereal, or lunches of salad sandwiches. I love having a good, hot breakfast, usually porridge with lots of fruit, cinnamon and seeds, and a extra big mug of green tea. Lunches of soups, leftovers and jacket potatoes, whatever warms me up from the inside out!

Autumn Walks - As much as I love being all wrapped up and warm in doors, nothing beats a refreshing Autumn walk. Boots on, hat on, scarf wrapped twice around and hands buried deep in my pockets. I love walking through parks through Autumn, watching the changing of the leaves, hearing them crunch under foot. Who needs to wear headphones when the natural sounds around you are so good?

Fashion - I’m no fashionista, but I love Autumn wear; skinny jeans, boots, extra long sleeved jumpers. And scarves! All the scarves! I love being able to warm up summer dresses too; thermal tights, knee high boots and waterfall cardigans - and more scarves! I’m all about the layers!

Spiced everything - from lattes to candles, nothing screams Autumn more than spiced flavours and scents. I can’t wait to pick up some cinnamon stick Yankee Candles and get them burning! I even go for more headier, spiced perfumes too, who doesn’t want to smell like Autumn?

Christmas is coming - All the decorations, gift sets, cheesy jumpers and decorations are slowly starting to appear in the shops and I'm loving it! I love all the hustle and bustle in the build up to Christmas - from events to markets, new lines and limited edition seasonal specials, it's all so exciting!
