Why I Bloody Love Autumn

Why I Bloody Love Autumn

It's officially September and in my mind that means it's Autumn/Winter Season! I probably sound like the typical blogger right now because I love the season so damn much, but I genuinely do and here are a few reasons why..

1. Sweater Weather 
I love wearing thick woolly jumpers that you can layer over leggings, a scarf and long/ankle boots. Just thinking about it is making me want to put one on right now, I also love the fact that half my uni wardrobe will be this.

2. Dark Colour's 
Clothing that is dark can be hard to pull off during the summer but towards the end of the year you don't have any excuse! Wearing everything black/grey is perfectly acceptable and the best thing it doesn't even have to match. 

3. Hot Drinks aka Starbucks PSL
Here comes the American inside of me, it's nearly time for the Pumpkin Spice Latte to come back in stores and also a bonus if you don't like coffee try the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate - divine!

4. Smelly Candles
Long time reader then you should then I love candles and will always buy them (even though my university doesn't allow them). Around this time of year I always repurchase the same ones eg Vanilla Chai and Salted Caramel - for more recommendations have a look at my previous posts.

5. Boots
I briefly mentioned these in 1. but it deserves an entire ramble - BOOTS! Knee Length, Short, Ankle, Leather, Pleather, Suede - all of them. I love buying and wearing them because they go with everything and look so stylish at the same time. Primark always have some great ones as do BHS and now is the best time to get them because they sell out quickly. 

6. Movie Nights
Any excuse to watch a film all year round but during the winter when you don't want to be going out then staying in is the best option. A good old girly film, blankets, popcorn and of course hot chocolate with marshmallows to top it all off. I watch all the same films, Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Notebook. 

7. Leather Jackets
Another fashion favourite this time of year has to be leather jackets, I have a nude one from Primark that is stunning. Looks amazing with leggings and a jumper and they are oh so snug. It takes a while to get used to them again as they can feel sticky at first.

8. Red/Berry Lips
There is going to be a whole post on this very soon but I still had to mention it of course. Dark, berry lips are a staple in my beauty routine - so many options to choose from as well from berry berry to deep reds. I prefer matte formulas as they last longer and look much better, however I hate dry lips. Pain!

9. Smell
This is a weird one to talk about but there must be someone who understands what I mean. The fresh, smell of Autumn is a good one. The crisp leaves and dark nights create like a breezy smell and everywhere I go I can smell it and just admire the area around me. Ooh and the sound of walking on leaves - adore. 

10.  The C Word
Dare I even say it but as soon as September hits I secretly start counting down to Christmas. There I said it. But it is really just around the corner, I am a planning freak so have to get mentally prepared from now - sad I know.

I have become that obsessed that I just had to create a Pinterest board, which you can find over here and it includes lots of cute photos like the one above and a series of blog posts coming your way very soon!

What do you love about Autumn?
