A few of my favourite things about Autumn

Books that make you scared
The beautiful array of colours you can only describe as 'October'
The weather being gently crisp though not yet icy
Growing a pumpkin and knowing it's yours
Hearing the patter of rain whilst safely indoors
Long, evening walks before returning to a hot water bottle in bed 
Tartan and plaid finally making an appearance
Candles that spice the whole room with warmth
Pine cones, acorns and conkers everywhere
Fluffy dressing gowns and even fluffier socks
Yummy crumbles, strudel, pies and soup
The crunch of leaves under your boots 
Bubble baths and steaming showers finally being appreciated
Fireworks and bonfires that light up the bleak night 
The potent yet phenomenal scent of Lush at Halloween
Writing letters under lamplight
And finally, a hearty mug of tea anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

Health and happiness, 
Marti xx

  3. But in all seriousness, a super sweet post. I LOVE AUTUMN! I FEEL SO SPOOOKY.

  4. I'm not a massive fan of scary stories but my English teacher is. However, I admire a few things you love about Autumn. For example, the different shades of colours the leaves are.

  5. Autumn has to be one of my favourite seasons! I loved hearing about all the differences you have compared to spring here :)

    1. It's so interesting to hear about your Spring! :)

  6. I love collecting pinecones and acorns for something arty in Autumn! And for me a chai tea is the perfect drink for the season - Lily xx

  7. Apples... Cinnamon... Pumpkin spice... Just not all 3 together!

  8. Omg I am in love with your blog because it's so beautiful and there are so many posts that mean something, it's so refreshing after trawling through hundreds of lipstick reviews, I love it so much!!!! I love autumn, summer is my favourite season but I love the change from the sticky heat that you're tired of to the crisp air, the early morning mist and the way the whole world feels like a fairytale. I would love it if you had a look at my blog; I’m a very passionate teenage blogger but I’m quite new and really need the support! Perhaps we could become friends? Thank you so much, Jeani xxx

    1. This comment is honestly the sweetest! Of course I'll check out your blog, I'm sure we'll get on perfectly xx
