Life: 10 Things I Love About Autumn

October 04, 2015

I'm still feeling a little sad that summer is over so at the start of October, to get me excited for Autumn, I've made a list with ten things I love about the new season.

1) Hot chocolate - I drink hot chocolate all year round but in the colder months I really step up my hot chocolate game and enjoy a cup most nights, preferably with a big helping of whipped cream. I also love it when the coffee shops bring out their winter flavours of hot chocolate- Costa do an amazing orange hot choc!

2) Getting cosy inside - it's such a nice feeling to be snuggled on the sofa whilst it's cold and rainy outside, knowing you don't have to go anywhere and can stay cosy.

3) Autumn TV - in September all of the Autumn/Winter TV comes out and I love it. X Factor, Strictly, Downton Abbey...bring it on!

4) Scarves and hats - it's acceptable to bring out the warm scarves and hats. I love being bundled up as warm as possible.

5) Hibernating - in the warmer months I always feel guilty if the sun is shining and I am indoors watching YouTube videos. In Autumn you can stay indoors all day and hibernate as much as you like, guilt-free!

6) Halloween - last Halloween we had a fun family party at my parents house. I think we are doing the same again. Love getting dressed up and playing silly Halloween games!

7) Candles - over Summer I don't use candles so much but when it hits the colder months I have them on all the time. 

8) Indulgent baths - I also have baths all year round (I just love them) but in Autumn I like to go all out with my bath pampering routine. Baths are so amazing after being all chilly outside, and I like to use bath oils and Lush products to make them extra special.

9) Comfort food- there's something about the cold that makes me want to binge on all of the carbs. Pies, pasta, spag bol - so much delicious comfort food!

10) The C word - dare I say it, Autumn means that Christmas is creeping ever so nearer!

  1. Yes, yes yes! The only thing I'm not a fan of is the shows around this time, but otherwise this list is down to a T. I will be doing each and every one of these things :)

  2. YESSSSS, my favourite thing about autumn is the hot chocolate varieties that Costa come out with. Seriously excited - always love their mint hot chocolate, but don't think I've ever seen my local ones do orange? Because I would snap that up in a heartbeat. Autumn is basically heaven for me because of all my shows returning. And gurrrrrrl, I have candles going all the time, but yes - love the scents that come out around this time.

    Autumn, I adore thee.

    1. Costa rock it with hot chocolate! If they don't advertise the orange hot chocolate just ask and they'll probably make it for you! I did that after they finished advertising it :) thanks for the lovely comment xx

  3. Love all of the above, especially the hot chocolates and X Factor combined! I always feel a bit sad when the summer is over but as soon as we're a few weeks into autumn I actually really love snuggling up in the sofa and watching my favourite tv shows :)
