Hands up, who’s looking forward to Autumn? Its nearly here, just round the corner… I can almost smell the Pumpkin Spice Lattes….
For a lot of people including myself it is their favourite time of year and here are my 10 reasons why…
1. The Weather
Its not too hot or too cold, its crisp and fresh, there’s the smell of log fires in the air and you can go for nice walks without feeling you are going to keel over into a puddle of sweat.
2. The Changing of The Colours
Autumn colours are just beautiful all the oranges, browns and dark green leaves falling from the tree’s you just can’t beat it.
3. Sweater Weather
Its time to transition from your summer to winter wardrobe, dust off those boots and furry gilets, and reach for this chunky knits.
4. Pumpkin Spice Latte’s are BACK
Does this one need an explanation, hurry up Starbucks we can’t wait.
5. Comfort Food
Warming food cooked in the slow cooker,its time for stews, soups and crusty bread.
6. Autumn TV
To me, as soon as X factor starts its Autumn in my eye and then you know when it finishes it’s Christmas. Autumn TV is generally lots of reality TV. I love it all, X Factor, Strictly, Im a Celeb… I’m hooked!
7. Plum Lips
You’ve been itching to do it, its been in your make up draw sitting, waiting patiently, yes its time to bring out MAC Rebel.
8 . Candles, Candles, Candles
Cinnamon, Fireside Treats, Marshmallow Fireside, Spiced Apple….whatever your Autumn scent of choice, clear away those floral candles and open up those warming scents and fill the air with fall.
9. Cosy Nights
There’s nothing nicer than getting in from work, slipping on your PJ’s and fluffy socks, drawing the curtains and curling up on the Sofa with a blanket and a hot drink. Bliss.
Yes, when Autumn finally reaches, to me it’s almost a Christmas countdown….another one of my favourite times, but I will write another list for that 😉
