I am definitely one of those people to drink hot chocolate all year round, but there's nothing better than sipping on a double hot choco whilst you're waiting for the train in the cold!
Now, I know a lot of people see pumpkins as the face of Halloween, but personally I'm looking forward to experimenting more in the kitchen this year and perhaps whipping up some spicy pumpkin soup. Mmmmmm.. yummy!
3. Falling fire-y leaves
Just look at the photo above. I don't think I need to explain to you why it is that I love the colours of Autumnal leaves so much.
4. Fluffy socks
It's actually pretty cold as I write this now and eeeeee my lil' toes feel oh so comfy in my thick fluffy socks! These are a daily essential come Autumn for sure.
5. Warm, hearty meals
I'm just going to come right out and say it: I love carbs. Nothing is more comforting to me during the colder weather than a delicious hot pot or jacket potato. Bring it on I say! Goodbyyye salads! :P
6. Cosy jumpers
I'm someone who really does feel the heat, so I can struggle quite a bit during the summer. I could go out naked on a 'cool summers evening' and still be sweltering hot so I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to dress in something a lot more comfy, and a lot more 'me'!
7. Seeing fairy lights prop up everywhere
I just don't know what it is about fairy lights, but I'm pretty sure they can manage to make just about anything look pretty. I just put some new batteries into mine and they are soooo bright! I love it when people start getting in the festive mood approaching December, and you slowly see more and more trees magically lit up at night. Bliss.
8. Seeing cheeky Christmas displays pop up, that everyone seems to moan about (but we all secretly love)
I know I just touched on this with the fairy lights, but what I mean is the increasing levels of gold, reds and greens propping up everywhere. Personally, I absolutely love Christmas, so the sooner people start to embrace that it's coming, the sooner I can start barking on about how much I love it!
9. Warm evening baths
As I said before, I just get sooo hot during the hotter summer months, which means I don't get in as many baths as I would like to! I'm starting university next week and I'm so looking forward to coming in from a long, tiring day and warming up in a LUSH-infused bath. Weeeee!
10. Reading books whilst snuggled under the duvet
I only really like reading books whilst in bed. I can't really concentrate anywhere else and definitely can't make myself as comfortable. We've had a pretty hot few months in London as it goes so I haven't been able to read as much as I'd like - so I'm suuuper looking forward to those colder evenings where a book reading session in bed sounds nothing less than perfect.
& there you have it! There is so sooooo much more I could have covered, so I definitely think there will be a 'Part Two' coming your way soon! Do you love Autumn as much as I do? Let me know what some of your favourite things are in the comments below!
