6 Reasons To Why I love Autumn

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons which I look forward to every single year. Period.

The leaves are starting to change, the air becomes crisper and all the cosy jumpers and blankets are coming out to play. It is time to say goodbye to the somewhat summer of 2020 which we all know was a bit of blur. It was like I blinked and it was time to say goodbye to the warm sun in August and hello to the fresh month of September.

However, if you are not ready to mourn the socially distanced summer memories then take a read about why you should look forward to the autumnal months to the end of 2020. It is the season of ambers, orange and red! The crunch of leaves under your feet on your afternoon walk, the misty mornings making its way through the amber sun, the air getting crisper, conkers falling from the trees and the smell of bonfires and candles lingering under your nose. If that doesn’t sum Autumn up as the best season, I don’t know what does.

A change in the season

It is the season of ambers, orange and red! The crunch of leaves under your feet on your afternoon walk, the misty mornings making its way through the amber sun, the air getting crisper, conkers falling from the trees and the smell of bonfires and candles lingering under your nose. If that doesn’t sum Autumn up as the best season, I don’t know what does.

Reading upon reading 

As the nights get darker and the air gets colder, it is time to wrap up in a blanket and catch up with all the books you never have time to read throughout the year. I find reading to be very therapeutic for the mind and when it is pouring with rain outside and you have the fairy lights on there is nothing more calming.

Scarves, sweaters and socks oh-my!

If you are like me, I love layering it is one of my favourite parts of the season just knowing I can throw on a hoodie, a jumper or a warm cosy coat. No risk of getting burnt from the sun or feeling sticky in the humidity, it is all about the ankle boots, turtle neck jumpers, cosy scarves and socks to keep us warm. My favourite holiday of them all besides Christmas, of course. Packed with lots of yummy snacks, a horror movie marathon, dressing up for a spontaneous night out on the town but we all know that will be different this year. Nevertheless, working in fancy dress means I work most of the holiday but I know I will be coming straight home to snuggle up and watch some of my favourite horror films. Does anyone love the idea of being scared? Not just me.

Halloween

My favourite holiday of them all besides Christmas, of course. Packed with lots of yummy snacks, a horror movie marathon, dressing up for a spontaneous night out on the town but we all know that will be different this year. Nevertheless, working in fancy dress means I work most of the holiday but I know I will be coming straight home to snuggle up and watch some of favourite horror films. Does anyone love the idea of being scared? No just me.

Lots of good TV and films

Does anyone else agree that the TV schedule in Autumn is just the best? One of my favourites of the Autumn period is that The Great British Bake Off returns which will mean snuggling under the blanket on the sofa ready to judge each bake every week while admiring Noel Fieldings iconic shirts. There are many more dramas coming this season which should keep our spirits alive during the troublesome times.

Candles

I love candles all year round, they are such a staple decoration to any room in your home but there is something about candles in the Autumn season which make it so much better. If you are like me when it gets to this time of year, I take an essential shopping trip to my local Home Sense and TKmaxx which house shelves upon shelves of pumpkin spice, apple cider, and cinnamon candles. They add the cosy element to any cold evening and help me relax after a long hard day. Heaven if you ask me.
