11 Things I’m Looking Forward to in Autumn
A list of all the lovely things I like to do in Autumn.
1. The colder weather
Waking up, going outside and having the blast of cold air hit your face wakes me up instantly. I love it.
2. Massive fat scarfs
It’s not Autumn if my outfit doesn’t incorporate a massive, fat scarf. My current favourite is a tartan scarf I was bought from Accessorize last year. It’s so comfy for nuzzling into when my face is cold.
3. Early morning dog walks
The dogs are happy because they’re being walked, and I’m happy because I wrap up warm and potter along with them. As the days get shorter it’s easier for me to dog walk before work, rather than after.
4. Binge watching TV/ movies
Staying in becomes the new going out. Evenings are filled with episode after episode of my favourite new series, or I snuggle down to watch films. You can check out my recent watches here.
5. Kicking fallen leaves
Yes, I’m one of those who still can’t resist kicking a massive pile of fallen leaves. Gardeners and Ground Keepers hate me.
6. The changes of colour
Cliché, but I love the warm hues that come in. Plums, bottle green, deep reds – I think they’re all so reflective of the time of year.
7. Stodgy food
Nuff’ said on this one. Stews, soups, casseroles, salads are out, warm dishes are in.
8. Early morning Costa
Almost every payday I treat myself to a Costa, whether it’s a green tea or a hot chocolate, as it warms my hands up when I get into work. Also, I can resist the Christmas hot chocolates – Black Forest, come at me.
9. Electric blankets
This is an added luxury in Autumn. I turn my electric blanket on 30 minutes before I go to bed and I am toasty as I drift off.
10. Make Up changes
Lighter colours are out, darker colours are in. A bold, dark lip, such as MAC Rebel teamed with MAC Nightmoth as a liner is my statement colour.
11. Countdown to Christmas
I can’t not mention this. Once October is out the way, and November begins I am officially on my countdown to Christmas, and that is my favourite season of the year.
