Autumn is my favourite time of year. Throughout the whole season, I’m just filled with a bubbling excitement because I just love it so much! Not everyone loves autumn (as I found out in a heated debate yesterday) but I thought I’d write a little list of why it’s my favourite.
- Cosy nights in
There’s nothing better than snuggling up under a blanket to watch some trashy tv.
- Hats, scarves, coats, boots and gloves
I feel so cute in a hat and scarf – and no one can tell me otherwise
- The colours
Just before the leaves fall they go brown and orange making everything look so beautiful.
- Pumpkin picking and carving
Even though I don’t have an artistic bone in my body, I adore going to a pumpkin patch and picking pumpkins. I genuinely just had a jolt of excitement go through me thinking about this.
Although I’m not big on fancy dress, I still really enjoy Halloween. I like decorating the house and having trick or treaters. It’s such a novelty to be on the other side of the door giving out sweets, it’s like handing out joy.
- Crispy leaves
I always go out of my way to crunch a really good leaf. Here is a video of me enjoying leaves. Enjoy.
I find that I’m motivated to write when it’s chucking it down, it feels super cosy too.
- Autumnal clothes
As soon as autumn kicks in, I’m straight onto New Look’s website buying all sorts of knitwear I really don’t need! I am particularly partial to a tartan skirt, jeans, boots and a cosy jumper. Oh and a hat! Definitely a hat!
- The word autumnal!
Possibly my favourite word ever?
- Beef stew and dumplings
When Storm Brian kicked in, my mum made a beef stew with homemade dumplings. So. Good.
- Halloween baking
You may have seen my previous post about baking so I won’t repeat myself. But you can read it here.
- Did I mention hats?!
I LOVE HATS
- Autumn walks
This kind of ties in with the crispy leaves but I love going for walks in autumn, in my little bobble hat and boots, crunching leaves left right and centre.
- Autumn lipstick
I definitely didn’t buy 5 lipsticks the other day. Definitely not.
- Firework night
I don’t know what it is about fireworks but they always get me so emotional. Especially in Disney, I’m always blubbing like a big baby!
