Its finally October (well it has been for the last week or two!) I thought that doing a post on my Favourite things about Autumn would be a great way to start this month.
The first thing that I love about Autumn is that the weather gets cooler. I do love Summer and sun and beaches and all that lovely stuff but I personally prefer the colder weather, I love cosy evenings and rain, I really hate it when you are boiling hot and trying to fan yourself and you’re all sweaty. But when it’s cold you can bundle up at get cosy! You have movies and baths and hot chocolates and cosy socks and PJ’s!!
The next thing I love is: Pumpkin spice! If I’m completely honest as much as I love it there is sometimes too much of it especially in America. But things like bread and cupcakes and drinks I really love!! I am also going to link into this Pumpkins. I love carving pumpkins! It just really gives me the Halloween feels and reminds me of when I was really young.
This leads me on to Halloween!! I did love it more when I was a. child as you could have SO much candy and trick or treat and you could eat all you want without gaining any weight! But I still love Halloween! The costumes, the spooky movies and just the amazing spooky atmosphere everywhere you go at the end of October!
Food. I love food in general but in Autumn it gets even better. I’ve already talked about Pumpkin spice, But there’s so much more!! Pumpkin pies, caramel apples, apples and blackberries and all the different and “limited” candies for Halloween. Last year I tried so hard to get pureed pumpkin. I went to Waitrose several times as well as several other shops and I just couldn’t find it, so I ended up buying some tins of it off Amazon. So this year I think I will do that too. Does anyone else find it hard to find pureed pumpkin at this time of year?
Candles!! I love candles and of course you can still light them in Spring and Summer but I think it is so much more cosy to light the in October to February. I also love to have the fire on while watching TV in the evening. What are your favourite scents and brands for candles?
The last thing (well the last thing that I am going to list today! Because otherwise we could be here all year!) that I love about Autumn is the “appearance” of it. What I mean by this is the beautiful trees, the look of the fires and candles and pumpkins for Halloween and the fashionable clothes you can wear. I love it when you go on a walk and you can see a row of trees with red, orange and yellow leaves, it looks so gorgeous.
I hope you have a great week!
PS I think that at the end of blog posts for a while I might put a question at the end for you to answer! If you like this idea then answer this question in the comments! ” What is your favourite Autumn or Halloween themed food or drink?”
