What I love about Autumn

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore the Summer time, and always feel a bit Lana Del Rey when it's over (Summertime Sadness, get it?), but at the same time, I get the warmest of feelings when I see those leaves turn brown as there's so much I love about Autumn. Here's a few of the things I love about this time of year...

Cosy Scarves
Nothing better than wrapping up in a big cosy scarf, especially those of the tartan variety. 

Coats & Boots
Basically I just love Autumn fashion. Layering up with cardigans/oversized jumpers, big coats and a nice pair of boots. YES!

Hot Chocolates
Because who doesn't love them? Complete with cream and marshmallows is a given!

Cosy, Snuggly Time With Loved Ones
I've always been a home bird, and I love nothing more than closing the curtains and getting cosied up with a film on the sofa with hot drinks and loads of goodies.

We burn Yankee Candles all year round in our house, but I love love love the Autumn scents and there's something a lot more satisfying about burning a candle on a cold evening.

Trips To The Park with Little Feet
George is at a fantastic age at the moment (just turned 2), and he's such an outdoors kid. His favourite place in the world has to be the park - where he can just roam free and explore. We took him on his first conker picking trip a couple of weeks ago and he LOVED it, and there's nothing cuter than hearing his little feet crunching through those leaves. My family and I joke that if George were a season he would definitely be Autumn, just look at that hair! hehe!

Bonfire Night
Awwww now we're talking! I absolutely adore wrapping up and heading out on Bonfire night. Every year our local town (Stockton-on-Tees) hosts an amazing (& free) fireworks show on the Riverside. I don't think the Hubby and I have missed a year since we've been together and it's just so wonderful getting amongst it and watching those fireworks light up the sky. We'll be taking George this year too, as last year he missed it as it was way past his bed time.

Note: I may aswell give a quick mention to Halloween, as it's probably on the top of most people's favourite things list, but I've never been a Halloween fan, even as a child I never really bothered about it, so we just don't get excited in our house, we do buy sweets for any trick or treaters though, and I will be taking George out when he's older if he shows an interest. Each to their own eh! The only thing I will be embracing is LUSH's Halloween range. I've got my eye on that Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar

The Build Up to Christmas
Yes, I know it's only October, but if you can't escape it, you may aswell embrace it. I absolutely LOVE Christmas, from planning presents to wrapping them, to creating my own mahoosive list for Santa himself ;-) I think I will love it even more now George's little excited personality is starting to shine through.

What do you love about Autumn?
