LIST | My Favourite Things About Autumn
Here are a few reasons as to why I love Autumn so much..
I know everyone is doing this sort of post at the moment and they’ll all pretty much be the same, but I wanted to share what my favourite things about Autumn are!
Fairy lights. Always fairy lights. If my whole bedroom could be completely covered in them, I so would do that. They’re just soo cosy (you’ll definitely hear this word a lot during this post, you’ve been warned..) and make everything feel that little bit more magical.
Candles. I sometimes light candles during Summer, but it just doesn’t feel right when it’s not dark enough outside! So Autumn is when I start lighting them excessively.
Fluffy and cosy clothing. Pyjamas, onesies, dressing gowns, loungewear, scarves, jumpers, etc. Anything that will keep you warm!
Fireworks! I absolutely love fireworks and I try to attend every single firework event in my local area. There’s something about them that feels so magical and I just love them.
Hot chocolates. When is a better time to drink copious amounts of hot chocolate? Go all out and add some squirty cream, marshmallows and sprinkles or chocolate shavings – Y U M.
Scarves. I love having them wrapped around my neck, making me feel all cosy and warm. I will have one surgically attached to my neck until next March I would have thought!
It’s officially the run up to Christmas. I know I’m getting ahead of myself, but Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I just can’t help it! I can slowly start buying my loved ones gifts and it’s totally acceptable right?!
Halloween. I don’t know why but I love Halloween. I don’t even usually do anything, but walking into various shops and seeing pumpkins, ghosts, black cats, etc. just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! I wish I could still go trick or treating, when did I become an adult?
Autumn themed eye makeup. I love using burnt oranges and creating warm smokey eyes during this season and Autumn is the perfect time to experiment!
Berry lips. Ooh I do love me a berry lip, admittedly I don’t wear them a lot but when I do I feel all sassy and very Autumnal.
Crispy leaves. I love the colour of them and the crunchy sound they make when you walk on them.
Boots. Probably my favourite shoe to wear and I own at least five pairs of black ones. They’re easy to put on and take off (read: lazy) and look great with most outfits.
Watching films. I don’t tend to watch films during the Spring and Summer because I prefer to soak up the little amount of sun that we get. So Autumn (and Winter) are the perfect months for sticking on a film in bed and cosying up.
The colours. Mustard, berry, dark green, red, etc. As much as I am obsessed with pastel, I also love deep and dark shades, so I’m excited to start looking like a walking piece of Autumn!
A change of hair. I tend to go darker during Autumn/Winter, just because why not?! My hair appointment this year isn’t until November (as I have a wedding in December and obvs it needs to be fresh for then..) but I’m really looking forward to adding a chocolate brown shade to my roots/top part of my hair and giving my ombré a refresh.
To be honest, my list could go on forever but I think I’m going to leave it here for now! I decided to post this before my holiday posts, but don’t worry, as soon as those are all posted it will be back to Autumn themed posts for CharsLittleBlog!
