Call me basic if you must but I LOVE Autumn. I think it’s the best season and I’ve said it so many times! Each of the season’s has something wonderful about them (although once Christmas is over, I’m done with Winter) but I’m going to give you 10 reasons why Autumn is the best.
The colours of Autumn!
Just the header of this picture is enough for me. Beautiful oranges, reds, yellows. I love going for walks in Autumn and watching how the colours change. It is a truly beautiful season.
All of them. Big chunky knit jumpers. Do I really need to explain why?
Scented candles and Bath Bombs!
I’ll be hitting up Lush for their Halloween specials, having a lot of lovely smelling baths and being glittery from them (of course). Then there are gorgeous candles with Autumn scents, I found some great ones in local discount shops last year as well as my local Yankee Candle shop. The house is going to be smelling BEAUTIFUL.
I love the fun side of Halloween, btw. Pumpkins, fun playlists, lots of sweets, dressing up. I’m not into horror films but give me a witches hat to chill out in every day of October and themed socks.
I absolutely love Hot Chocolate. It’s something a little bit different and I can go to a coffee shop with friends and it’s not weird when I don’t order coffee. Also all the new flavours come in, I’m not a pumpkin girl BUT I get very excited about the Costa varieties.
Spending rainy days under a blanket
All the blankets, with a good book or good TV, is there anything cosier? This might just be me, I really, really like blankets.
It’s boot season! Is it me or do boots make every outfit look better? Also there’s mustard yellow everything, thick tights and oh did I mention boots? I honestly look my best in the autumn those colours are my go to in life!
Socially acceptable book reading instead of going outside
No one will judge you for wanting to spend time at home when it’s rainy and cold. Give me allllll the books people!
I know this isn’t one for my followers outside the UK, but we have Guy Fawkes Night every year. There’s bonfires, fireworks and I just have the best memories of bundling up in coats, hats and gloves and going to watch the big display we used to have in my hometown. I love the smell of a bonfire.
The countdown to Christmas!
Winter doesn’t officially start in the UK until the 21st December, so the Christmas countdown is officially part of Autumn! I love getting ready for Christmas, watching the lights go up, buying gifts for friends and family. Eeek!
