LET'S TALK: Autumn

It's beginning to feel a lot like Autumn...

After our lovely walk around Sywell, it got me thinking - I am actually really looking forward to the cooler weather - so why not share the reasons I love Autumn! I'm sure many of you will agree that it's always hard to say goodbye to Summer but the changes in fashion, foods and weather are all exciting ones.

Here's why I love Autumn:

1. Soup making - I love making soup and spend a good chunk of time throughout Autumn and Winter doing so...and Spring and Summer too actually. The exciting thing about Autumnal soup is the fact I can have Pumpkin soup every single day. Hooray!

2. The colours - reds, oranges, yellows. Love love love! One of my favourite places during this season is the Peak District. The colours are incredible.

3. Hot chocolate - specifically soya hazelnut; yes, I'm a fussy one (and with good reason). If you haven't tried this, get down to your nearest Costa - they have it spot on!

4. Crisp but sunny mornings - Opening your curtains to bright sunshine, those colours and knowing it'll be a little cool out so you can layer up - PERFECT 

5. Boots - There's something lovely about waking up in the morning, putting on a lovely outfit and heading out into the cool, crisp mornings with a thick pair of socks and some boots on. I've been on the quest for the perfect pair of brown or tan knee highs for around 5 years now and the search still continues. This Autumn I am determined. 

6. Layers - Layering up is my favourite. It can make an outfit look so much better than throwing on a summer dress with bare legs and sandels! 

7. Blankets - there is nothing better than wrapping up with a big mug of tea, a bar of chocolate, throwing over a blanket and snuggling up to watch a film. Autumn is the perfect excuse for this.

8. Crunchy leaves and long walks - I love going for walks but team that with the crunchy leaves under foot, the crisp mornings, the colours and a little bit of sunshine...absolute perfection.

9. Scented candles - berries, cinnamon - Oh, stop it! Yankee always have the best range of candles, for any time of year, but their Autumnal candles are amazing. A little pricey but they last a very long time and are worth the cost!

10. Mulled drinks - typically not coming into pubs and bars until December time, who says you can't get your mulled drinks on the go at home?! 

What are you favourite things about Autumn?
