Autumn. I love it. (this will be a lot of writing so you might want to get comfortable!) Frosty morning walks in the woods with family and friends. Cozy days when you just stay in bed all day bingeing on disney and christmas films (because it's NEVER too early). Taking for ever to take the perfect "instagram-able" photo, with a pumpkin spice latte nestled in your hands as it's an "autumn thing!"
*sigh....why does it have to come to an end...? *Wait, snow, CHRISTMAS!!! I even love autumn so much I created a day to spend doing autumn-y things! (which was great by the way, I would highly recommend it!) I cooked up three kinds of porridge with lots and lots fruit for breakfast, before getting my family to open up their tiny packages filled with sparkly acorns that were covered in glitter, and hot chocolate mixes. Once I had finally finished planning the day, I was so full I could barely move, but I some how managed to get to of my pj's and we made it out the door without falling asleep after all that food! We then went to the local farm shop, went on a walk, took so many photos, and had a delicious home cooked meal before I fell asleep, drunk with happiness.
And then there's HALLOWEEN! A night full of pumpkins, scary movies, and enough sweets to make your teeth rot! This year, I went to a friend's party, which was SO fun!!! the trick or treating ended up being a little bit of a flop, but somehow (I have no clue how?!) it resulted in us making horror film trailers, which actually ( yet again, I also have no clue how!) looked really cool, and would make a damn scary movie. In cinemas soon...?
I especially love all the colours of autumn. From the the brightest crimson, orange and burgundy, to the dullest of browns. I have found that this month in autumn has been the best clothes out there for me. I have loved zara the most and now that there is the festive clothes coming in too, I couldn't ask for more really! I found some really gorgeous patterned tops in there, and it has been really convenient since a zara just opened in my town centre. I have also loved trying on some more daring lipsticks in some beautiful berry tones, but as Charlotte Tilbury is a little bit out of my price range, I have found that the Kiko 'Rebel romantic intensely lavish lipstick" range are amazing. And under half the price.
My essentialls these last autumn months have been scented candles, hot drinks and jumpers, the big kind that go down to your knee. My favourite jumper is a light pink coloured jumper from new look. I'm not sure if they still have it in (I bought it in September) but everyone should have one! My favourite candle has been anthropologies range in general! I have a pear and whipped cream candle, which I literally want to eat it's that good. I also saw a pumpkin souffle scented candle in store the other day, which was incredible! They are a little expensive at £14 but it is something very special, and would make a great gift. There is also a dupe of it I saw in primark christmas section which was also amazing.
I'm very sad to see Autumn go, but now winter is almost here, just think....CHRISTMAS!!!! Sorry this blog was so so long, but if anyone did read to the end, thank you! And also I would love to know your favourite thing about autumn in the comments! xxxxx
