I'm sure I've already said this at least 1000 times during #blogtober (oops, sorry), but I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR! I thought it would only be right to write a detailed list of everything I love about this season and why, to help those of you who are still pining after the summer and to appeal to my fellow Autumn aesthetic lovers.
THE COLOURS ARE BEAUTIFUL
There's just something about the red, orange and yellow tones everywhere that makes me feel really happy and calm.
MMM, COMFORT FOOD
Finally we can say goodbye to salads (🙌🏻) and hello to warm, comfort food. I'm talking soups, stews, corned beef hash, pies... the lot!
WRAPPING UP WARM
Piling on the layers and the cosy tights makes me feel so much better! I feel so much more comfortable in big, baggy, comfy clothes.
COSY NIGHTS AND BLANKETS
I LOVE spending my evenings wrapped up in blankets on the sofa watching TV!
That sound when you crunch leaves under your feet? SO satisfying.
REWATCHING COSY PROGRAMMES AND FILMS
I love rewatching the Harry Potter films at this time of year! It just makes me feel so cosy and nostalgic and gets me ready for the festive season.
HAVING LOTS OF BATHS
Baths are SO much more acceptable when the weather is cold! As a bath obsessive, I'm excited for gorgeous-smelling baths and then wrapping up in towels and comfy pyjamas afterwards.
WEARING FLUFFY SOCKS
Is there anything better than fluffy socks? And yes, I do wear them in bed!
It's much more socially acceptable to want to stay home when the weather is rubbish! My home is definitely my comfort zone.
I much prefer Autumn fashion and style to Summer! I love all of the different accessories you can add when layering your outfits, such as scarves, hats and long coats.
BEING INSIDE AND LISTENING TO THE RAIN
There's nothing worse than being stuck outside in torrential rain, but it feels lovely and cosy when you're inside listening to it rain outside!
DRINKING HOT CHOCOLATE
I don't drink tea or coffee, so Autumn/Winter is the time when I drink alllll the hot chocolates!
IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS
My FAVOURITE time of year is almost here! Christmas is such a magical, nostalgic, family time and I get so excited for it every year.
LONG, COSY WALKS IN THE WOODS
Seeing the gorgeous colours, feeling the leaves crunch beneath my feet, wrapping up warm, taking lots of seasonal photos, breathing in the fresh air... Heaven! 🍂
THE SCENT OF AUTUMNAL CANDLES AND CLEANING PRODUCTS
At the risk of sounding 100 years old (😂), there's nothing better than Autumnal scented candles and cleaning products! Having my whole house smell like Cranberry and Orange/Winter Spice Zoflora makes me feel so comforted.
THE CLOCKS GO BACK
Woohoo, we get an extra hour in bed! I mean, the nights are dark, the mornings are dark... but we get an extra hour so to me it's worth it.
COMFY PYJAMAS AND LOUNGEWEAR
What's your favourite season? Do you love Autumn as much as I do?
