Autumn. The season for cosy jumpers, long walks in the changing leaves, scented candles and snuggly blankets. Potpourri bowls, one-pot recipes and cold, crisp mornings. Autumn is my favourite season.
Here are some of my favourite things to do in the autumn months:
- Getting the jumpers out. I am definitely a lot more into autumn and winter fashion. Over-sized baggy jumpers, skinny jeans and chunky boots. I can’t wait for the day I can wear my new coat for the season and throw on a scarf and hat. There’s just something about the simplicity of a jumper and a pair of jeans that never gets old.
- Cosying up. Weekends in the autumn are ones I really look forward to. My perfect set up is making myself snug on the sofa, under a blanket in front of the TV watching Harry Potter with the boy (we are currently half way through the fourth film and I can’t wait to continue this upcoming weekend!) Not forgetting that all important glass of wine and
some healthy snackslots of chocolate…
- Candles and potpourri. OK. I am a candle addict. At the moment because I live at home with my parents I don’t use them here. My boyfriend’s place on the other hand…For me, there is no such thing as too many candles. Spiced apple, cinnamon, fig and Christmas scented candles are my favourite!
- Crunchy leaves. I absolutely love gorgeous autumn leaves underfoot and the sound of them crunching on a long country walk. As someone who regularly walks, (the boyfriend drags me out which I am grateful for) the change of weather and scenery is something I really look forward to.
- One-pot stews. Honestly, if you don’t have a slow cooker, what are you doing? Chicken stew, beef stew, lamb stew! All the stews! In one pot! There’s nothing better than a warming, hearty meal at the end of a long day and if you put it on in the morning it is ready for when you get home.
