It's that time of year again, Autumn! In my opinion Autumn and Winter are the best seasons and here's some reasons why :)
There's nothing better than an autumn candle! When it's miserable weather and dark outside it's always nice to dot candles around but also because of the variety of fragrances that come out around the season. My favorite is Yankee candles because of the amount of smells they do (although very pricey!). Or you can always buy some none scented candles and buy fancy holders to decorate your home.
Guy fawkes/firework/bonfire night is the ultimate autumn event. People usually celebrate on the 5th November at home with friends or go to a local event being held. In my town, the night is held in a large field area and consists of fun fare games and rides, stage/band performances, food, bonfire presentation and of course the firework display. I love getting all layered up in warm clothes hat/scarf and setting out with my friends for the night.
Of course there's no denying that in the colder months everyone eats a lot more 'comforting' food like hot meals for lunch and soups/slow cooked meal (maybe it's a british thing). I usually take a lot of time to plan meals ahead when I'm busy so it's easy to grab a nice soup with some granary bread for lunch. There's obviously the naughty foods too like dark chocolates and desserts that everyone eats more of!
There's something so easy after a summer of indecisive outfit building of grabbing a jumper, scarf and coat and heading out the door. This autumn burgundy's and leather seem to have made a huge appearance and I love it! Layering is the most important thing when dressing for a day out in autumn and it's good because it means not having to ditch all your t-shirts from summer. With layering, a t-shirt, cardigan, scarf, jacket, coat make a great combination with still looking on trend!
