WHY I LOVE AUTUMN


You know how some people suffer with 'SAD' in the Autumn and Winter months? That's me in the Summer. I really don't enjoy it, I've spoken about this a lot throughout the years, especially on my twitter where I like to vent and go off on one.. but I really just don't like it in the UK. When it hits September and I can feel the season changing, a huge burst of excitement starts to fizzle inside of me and I CAN'T CONTAIN IT. 

I have always loved feeling the cold, I feel like I've naturally just got warm blood because I feel the heat super easy & it makes me uncomfortable. So I guess the first thing I will talk about is the..

Cold Weather
There is just something about cold crisp mornings and early dark evenings that make me feel warm and toasty inside. A bit like Kehlani's - Alive lyrics "Crazy, how I feel the most warm when it's cold" - that is literally me lol. 

The Fashion 
I think everyone would agree that the clothes in Autumn/Winter are what dreams are made of. I love the autumnal colours, the chunky knit scarves, the berry lip, the black boots. I love it alllll. 

Halloween and Firework Night
Two of my favourite holidays.. alongside Christmas of course. I love celebrating both Halloween and Bonfire night, simply because of the fact I love dressing up and I also love the vibe that comes with both of them. Last year, I remember walking around a field with my camera in one hand and a glass of prosecco in the other, waiting for the fireworks to start. Smoke in the air and the smell of fried onions for the hot dogs is something I will never get tired of. 

Pumpking Picking 
This is an event and activity in itself haha. But it's fun, it's really fun. Depending on what you have nearest to you, you will find a pumpkin field or a garden centre almost anywhere that sells Pumpkins, all different shapes and sizes. And although it gets kind of messy, carving them is fun too. 

Hot Chocolate
I actually drink hot chocolate all year round but I feel less guilty for drinking it this time of year. There's something so cosy about snuggling up to watch Hocus Pocus with a hot chicolate in hand. Last year I actually wrote a whole post on different recipes and different flavours, which you can read here. 

Autumnal Walks
You won't ever see me walking in the summer unless it's walking to a park for a picnic lol. I just can't bare to do any movement when it's hot if I'm honest but I bloody love going for long walks in the Autumn! Even if it's raining, I'll just chuck on a pair of wellies, a big coat and head on out. I like walking on crunchy red leaves and kicking conkers lol. 

Weekends In
I feel like it's easier to save money during the colder months because I much prefer to stay in on the weekends, rather than to go out and spend money on things I don't really need.. for example, money for club entry, drinks etc. Saying that though, I'm quite eager to get takeaways on the weekends, especially when it's cold outside so.. I'm not really saving money at all, am I? Lol. 

What do you like most about Autumn? Or do you not like this season at all? I'd love to know.

Lots of Love,
Charleigh
