Reasons I Love Autumn & Winter.




REASONS WHY I LOVE AUTUMN/WINTER. 


Ah, the topic has taken the blogging world by storm. While everyone's been excited to share holiday plans, photos, posts and all things summer..you may have noticed I slipped into hibernation. I do like summer but autumn and winter holds a place in my heart. So although I'm aware were in Autumn right now, I want to share my love for the current season and the upcoming colder season. 

the cold.
Weird? Yes, but when you're cold you can cosy up in your favourite jumper, that super soft blanket or simply the perfect excuse to spend any spare time in bed. The layering up, hats, scarves and coats and all the costa hot chocolate to keep your insides warm. 

the colours.
another weird one? The colours and the clothes, I think this is because I suit the colours. Khaki, berry red, deep plum, black and grey. Which although I do have some pieces I want to pick up and venture into buying a few more exciting bits and pieces. 
I also LOVE the colours on the streets. The greens, yellows and oranges of the trees and leaves, including the smell of the crisp air & damp from the rain and the brightness of the frost and the colours from the ice and (potential) snow, just thinking about it excites me!! 

tv shows, candles & fairy lights.
The thing I fall in love with most during these months of the year is lighting some cinnamon and vanilla candles, dotting a few too many fairy lights around, climbing into bed and re-watching a tv series. Most winter time I'm re-watching Gilmore Girls for the 5000th time, last year I wanted Gossip Girl for the first time and this year I'm watching Boy Meets World, a childhood classic, which I never watched when I was younger. The heating on, cosy pyjamas & blanket, the smell in the air, the pretty lights in my room and the necessary hot chocolate is a must of those gloomy winter evenings. 
Something about these simple nights just fill me with joy. 

the makeup.
Autumn & Winter is usually the time of year I experiment with my makeup. I grab the palettes, I buy new lipsticks and just LOVE the chance to experiment. It's also the perfect excuse for dark colours. BERRY lips products are my must have for the next following months, and I've been loving wearing reds so much lately so I'm going to test some more deep berry red eye looks for next few months. Oh I'm also in love with copper and golden brown shades, which will be perfect for this time of year too!! 

everything else.
I thought this would be a simple post but there's just so much to mention about Autumn & Winter which I love. I think it stems from my childhood, learning about the seasons and watching the world around you changing, the cool air of autumn and also being snug in your new coat with the hat and scarf collection someone brought you the previous christmas oh and don't get me started on the excitement of christmas arriving, the possibility of snow. 

I have so many exciting things happening in the next couple of months and I can't wait to share everything I get up to with you all, I'm also excited to purchase some more winter appropriate clothing and just beginning to feel oh so snug. 
What excites you about the up coming months? Which do you prefer Autumn or Winter? Or are you more in love with Spring and Summer?

  8. I like the summer but after spending the last 5 months waiting for a decent heatwave I think it's time to give up and embrace autumn/winter with open arms!
