This is a common blog post idea I think, but it’s also one of my favourites. I love reading about autumn, seeing the nice pictures and hearing what different people enjoy this time of year, so here’s my go at it.
1. The Colours
Of course, the main thing we all love about Autumn is the beautiful red, orange, yellow and burgundy colours that fall from the trees and blanket the pavements. I also love the colours in fashion at this time of year, I love to bring out the burgundy and the browns of my clothes. I also take it upon myself this time of year to market the dark purple and red lippys and use them pretty much daily – I love them so much! I have a lovely dark purpley-burgundy No 7 one which is my fave.
Now being at uni, I’ve been far from the dear warmth and cosiness of when dad would light the fire in the living room and we’d all watch Strictly under blankets on the sofa. However, it’s still one of the things I love about this time of year and I’m very excited to have many a fire when I’m home for the Christmas holidays.
3. Hot choccys and festive drinks!
Well duh! Something I’ve started to do this year (since our house is closer to town now) is pop into town and visit a different coffee shop. Either with friends or on my own, I try and pop down every now and then and endulge in a lovely coffee/hot choc at a new spot in York (there are so many that it’s my mission to visit as many as possible before I finish uni!) and do a bit of work or just watch the world go by. Similarly, me and my housemates have formed a slight tradition involving, a box of chocolates, hot chocolates and Gogglebox and I’m loving it. I really want to try the Gu salted caramel hot choc too – sounds delish! (Mentioned on Zoella’s blog)
I personally agree that Autumn is the most beautiful time of year. I love taking photos of all the stunning colours and trees and birdies everywhere, as well as the kids playing about and everyone wrapped up warm and cosy with their families. I also really enjoy the weather at this time (mostly). I mean I’m never really a fan of rain – when I’m outside in it – but when the suns out but the airs cold and crispy, I love it! And to be honest, cosy nights in are just made better when it’s tipping down outside, aren’t they?
5. Warm baths and candles!
Sadly in our new house at uni, baths are a rare occurrence for me, and I’m still not sure whether or not we’re allowed candles so I’m playing it safe. However, this does mean two things I love about autumn once again have to be saved for when I return home for the Christmas holidays – I’m counting down and It’s now only 33 days until I have a nice hot, extremely bubbly, lush-Christmas-bath-bomb-smelling, Yankee candle-lit bath waiting for me!
What do you love about Autumn?
