Autumn, is without a doubt my favourite time of year. Yes, I am one of those annoying people that once we’ve had a week of warmth and sunshine, I am wishing it away and praying for that cold, crisp weather where I can wear beanie hats and cosy jumpers. I have become such a big fan of list blog posts, so I thought I would tell you why Autumn is my ALL TIME FAVE.
Beanie hats. I absolutely love beanie hats. Of course, they keep your head nice and toasty during the colder months, but also, how good do they look?! They add so much more to an outfit and in my opinion, pulls the whole look together. I am starting to develop quite the collection and, they are the perfect thing to wear when you’re having a bad hair day.
Scarves. Like beanie hats, I think scarves make any Autumn outfit look 10x better! Big, chunky, woolly scarves – I love them!
Ankle boots. As most of my friends and family will know, I am the least girly person when it comes to clothes and shoes. I live in my Converse and my Vans, so when it gets a bit colder and the ankle boots come out, that is as girly as I’m ever gonna get, and I kinda like it.
Hot drinks. To be honest, I’m still a lover of hot drinks in the Summer too, but there is just something super cosy about having a hot chocolate or a cup of tea when it’s cold outside. Plus, is there really anything more Autumnal than a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte?
Candles. I am obsessed with candles, particularly at this time of year. Cinnamon, especially. I love any warm, spicy scents. They are perfect for lazy days in, and just make any day feel warm and cosy. I am obsessed with Yankee Candle ‘Sparkling Cinnamon’, I have the candles, the car air fresheners, the ones you put in the vents, the lot. I love them.
The makeup. This is quite possibly my favourite part of Autumn. I love being able to go slightly smokier on the eyes, and dark purple and plum on the lips. My go-to Autumn lipstick is Glastonberry by Charlotte Tilbury. And, I am loving the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette; it is the perfect palette full of Autumnal shades – deep reds, burnt oranges, and dark, smoky browns.
Say goodbye to bright, pastel nails, and hello to khaki, wine and plum shades. Admittedly, I do love pastel shades during Summer, but I am SO excited to be able to wear darker shades (not that I didn’t anyway, but it just feels much more appropriate).
Leaves. Is it just me that finds it so unbelievably satisfying to stand and walk on crunchy leaves?
Lush. This is probably one of my all time fave things about Autumn. I am OBSESSED with Lush products; bath bombs, bubble bars shower gels, the lot. I use Lush bath bombs etc, all year round, even on the hottest of days; there is nothing more relaxing or comforting than a bath using a whole load of Lush products, especially after a stressful day. I am even more obsessed when the seasonal products come out; the warm, spicy scents, I love how cute and festive everything is! I can’t tell you how excited I am for the Autumn/Winter range to be released next week (I will of course be doing a big ol’ Lush Haul when I manage to get my hands on everything!).
Pyjamas. Oh my goodness. Is there really anything better than getting all wrapped in a pair of super cosy, festive patterned pjs after having a Lush bath? I think not.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what your favourite things are about Autumn!
