10 Things to Love about Autumn

10 Things to Love about Autumn

Summer is by far my favourite season- and although I love the start of any new season, they all tire eventually, except summer! The light nights give us more hours in the day and there’s something about the sun, as well as the free time that comes with educational holidays that but’s everyone in high spirits. But, alas it has come to an end, and although we managed to enjoy some cracking weather throughout September the nights are already drawing in and it won’t be long before we’re battling the wind and the rain!

Things I love about Autumn

In the interest of looking on the positive side and finding the silver lining, I thought I’d make a list of my favourite things the season has to offer!

  1. Wearing all black is universally acceptable- and you don’t face the prospect of over heating
  2. You can finally get a good nights sleep without turning into a sweaty mess
  3. You can buy a new coat, new boots, new scarfs, gloves, hats- the list is endless!
  4. It’s the season of festivities- Halloween and Bonfire night both fall in autumn and give us plenty of things to look forward to, plus Christmas is just around the corner!
  6. It’s socially acceptable to spend the whole day inside- and every Saturday night, who want’s to go out in the rain anyway?
  7. BATHS- I get far too agitated if I take a long bath during summer, I can last maybe 20 minutes tops, when the weather cools though there’s nothing more comforting than a nice long soak after battling the elements!
  8. Treats- Drinking Hot Chocolate aged 21 at a meeting suddenly becomes acceptable, the shops are filled with sharing boxes of chocolate and with no summer body to worry about ordering pudding is a sure thing
  9. More Pamper time- this one kinda goes with it being acceptable to stay indoors 24/7 but the colder weather also has a HUGE impact on my skin so extra pamper time is practically a necessity…. (are you convinced?)
  10. Berry Lips- need I say more? Although I am partial to a brown-y pink, there’s something extra special about a berry shade at this time of year, it is weird if I say it just feels right?

I’m sure there are plenty of other reasons to look forward to, if you’re a lover of autumn please let me know your favourite things- the longer the list the better, once the clocks go back I’m going to need a constant reminder of why to stay positive!

    • They’re so lovely when it’s chilly outside too, a real sanctuary!

  • Waking up without that oily film on my face is the thing I look forward the most. Autumn/winter are my seasons of choice when it comes to my skin as it turns completely normal and I can use beautiful, glowy foundations. <3


    • That sounds like the perfect situation! I wish I could say the same for my skin…

  • Della Driscoll

    Love, love, love this post! Everything about autumn is super cosy and festive xxx

    • I have to say I much prefer the warmer months, but the light at the end of the tunnel- Christmas!- kinda makes the cold worth it?

  • Peppermint Dolly

    “All the candles”, that made me giggle – so true though!!



    • I mean I burn them all year round but there’s something extra special about all the autumn/winter scents!

  • Jasmin N

    Autumn is my favorite season! Although I’m not enjoying it when it gets so dark so early.

    • I’m definitely not a fan of the dark evenings either!

  • I love autumn! And not just because it’s one season closer to Christmas haha. I love the cozyness!

    • It’s proximity to Christmas is one of the best reasons to love Autumn for me- I’m feeling festive already!

  • Yes, autumn is the best because I love wearing all black!


    • I still wear all black outfits regularly throughout the year but find it suddenly becomes normal once the cold hits?!

  • Lauren Clare

    Yes to everything on this list! Autumn is my favourite season, ’tis the season of coziness & lazines🔥☕️ I love it!

  • Love this list! I love Autumn for the fashion and cozyness but I really hate the weather and the short days! Nothing annoys me more than going to work in the dark and going home from work in the dark! I am excited about wearing darker lipsticks though ha

    • I completely agree- I’m definitely not a fan of the cold dark days which is why I have to find little things to look forward to each day, like cosy clothes and a nice mug of hot chocolate in the evening!

  • Ashley Laughlin

    That tobacco pipe candle really caught my eye! I adore the smell of pipes, but not so much the tobacco. That candle is brilliant!

    • I complain about it but I know I’d miss it if I lived somewhere with warmer weather year round too!
