Hello Autumn

I have waited for this for so long. Autumn is my favourite season. I love everything about it and thought I'd share just some of my many favourites with you.

1. The weather. It's not hot but it's not freezing cold. I love the cool crisp air in the mornings, the breezes, the smell of wet leaves, the dark nights when you're all cosy at home with a hot drink and your nearest and dearest around you. The sound of the rain hitting off the windows and the howl of the winds during the night, I'm not sure why but I find it so cosy and comforting.

2. The colours. I love the reds, browns, oranges and yellows. My makeup bag has a makeover, my wardrobe has a switch and my home becomes a little bit festive with lots of cute autumnal accessories. The throws are back on the couch, the fluffy dressing gown is hung on the back of the door and the central heating is on constantly. I love it and think everything is much prettier and cosier during Autumn.

3. You know Christmas is coming and that really excites me. Christmas time is one of the very few times I get to spend with all of my family and one of the very few times throughout the year that my partner gets off work as he's self employed so rarely takes annual leave or holidays. It's lovely to spend quality time together with the people we love most. It goes without saying.

The bikini's are packed away, the passport put in the draw and the bbq in the shed. It's time to make Christmas lists and start thinking of festivities. I love making plans for the Autumn and Winter months, there's always lots of fun local events going on and I get so excited about markets, they're one of my favourite places to go and there's always lots of them happening around this time of year.

4. Television. Now, I'm not a huge fan of tv, there are some shows I do love watching but I can take or leave tv but during Autumn I always find tv choice much better! I'm a big soap opera fan and find the story lines much more exciting, this is when they start building up to the big Christmas finale. The movie channels get more interesting too as producers know more people will be having nights in rather than nights out and some of my favourite shows start again such as X Factor, I'm A Celeb and Saturday Night Takeaway. I just love me some Ant and Dec, fellow geordies and all that.

5. Food - I'm so excited to use my slow cooker again. Eating beef stew mid July just doesn't feel right but during Autumn I've always got something delicious simmering away in our slow cooker. Anything from chunky veg soup to homemade rice pudding or a nice joint of roast beef ready for a delicious roast.

I love the smell that drifts through my home from the slow cooker, food always tastes so good from it too, especially meat. It's so juicy and just melts in your mouth. I couldn't be without mine during Autumn and Winter.


I'd love to know what you love about Autumn in the comments below.

  1. I also love autumn though we don't have that season in my country (Philippines) we can also feel the weather getting colder but not too cold and not that hot like during summer. This means that the Ber months already begun and Christmas and New year is just few days ahead.

  2. Autumn isn't my favourite month as I'm always sad once summer is over. It is such a pretty month and I do like being tucked up at home when it's wild outside too. I'm with you on the slow cooker, love getting it back out again and cooking stews again.

  3. I think summer is my favorite season, but autumn means the holidays are coming, and I definitely like that. Thanksgiving and Christmas are when my entire family comes from all over southern California to enjoy a meal and good times together. That's my absolute favorite time of year. I guess I begin to look forward to that in Autumn. Thanks for the post.

  4. What a fun post! You actualy make me excited about fall too! And a little jealous! I live in Florida and it is going to stay hot here for a while. I already started fall shopping though. 😂 Enjoy the season!

  5. It's sad that I live in a tropical country so we only have summer and rainy seasons. I would really love to experience autumn and winter, and I wish could travel to foreign countries in the future to finally get to experience all four seasons.

  6. I love Autumn and winter, just to see the leaves turn brown, pumpkin biscuits and the night air.

  7. Very true Autumn is beautiful as there are colorful trees with rustic shades all round. People are ready to welcome festivals and fresh snow.

  8. I agree, autumn is such a beautiful season with all those pretty colors of foliage. Although I love spring more as I am more of a summer and that season is the beginning of warmer days.

  9. I love Autumn for the cool brisk chill. It is so refreshing. It is my season. Perhaps one day I'll experience a real Autumn with a full seasonal color change.

  10. I'm not at all a fan of autumn weather -- where I live it means allergies and 6+ months of grey winter is coming. The food is definitely an upside though. I can't wait to start cooking squash, and soup, and pies again!

  11. Autumn is my favourite season purely because of Halloween - I'm a spooky kid at heart and I love any opportunity to show that off!

  12. I love Autumn too but then I love all four seasons especially when they are typical and don't act up weather wise. (Like being freezing cold with rain in the summer) Autumn colours are so inspiring and I love hanging my Autumn door wreath on my door at the end of Sept where it stays until I replace it with a xmas wreath.

  14. My favorite thing about fall is all of the pretty colors! I love wearing burgundy, greens and yellows so it gives me an excuse to find more clothes in those shades. I'm also super excited about wearing light jackets again - I'? a fall girl through and through!

  15. I also love the Autumn and Winter season. Collecting colorful fall leaves is my favorite things to do in this season. Apple picking,leaf-peeping,Take a hot-air balloon ride are great outdoor things to do in Autumn season.

  16. I also love the very start of autumn with the beautiful golden light in the evening, the warm colours of leaves, the comforting food, but I really struggle with the lack of light :(
