I love autumn.
From the colours of the leaves, to the rain as I fall asleep, to hot chocolate being an appropriate thing to drink.
I love it all.
And it only really hits me how much I've missed autumn when it comes around again. I don't hate any season, but I can safely say I'm not the biggest fan of summer; sure the sun's nice every now and again but I don't really like too much of it. Whereas I can take numerous cold days if it means I get to come home at the end of the day and huddle under my duvet with hot chocolate and a book. It's too hot for that in summer, and in England summer's usually really muggy and humid and horrible. Eh.
Autumn may well be my favourite season.
I went on a walk to one of my favourite parks yesterday and only then did it really hit me that autumn had seemingly happened. There were orange leaves discarded everywhere, and the wind whipped my hair like I don't know what. It also rained half the time, which is something I find really calming; just what I needed at the time.
I've seen a lot of people doing the autumn tag, and so I thought I'd answer some of the questions here :)
Favourite thing about autumn?
It might actually be the clothing. You can wrap up in loads of layers and still not end up feeling too hot. I like that. And hot chocolate of course, although I do drink it all the time anyway.
I like the smell of wood burning, at a campfire or a bonfire. I don't know, it just feels autumnal and like there's a clash between the warm and cold.
I'm scared of wearing bright lip colours so I pretty much avoid all the colours that most people would go to in autumn with the reds and plum shades haha. But I do like Revlon's Lip Butter in Pink Truffle, which is quite a deep red/pink colour. How daring hahah.
Go to moisturiser?
No7's Beautiful Skin Day Cream.
Go to colour for the eyes?
After pretty much not adding any colour to my eyes over spring/summer, I'm back into the browns/greys/black.
Favourite music to listen to?
I don't know why, but I get really into Mayday Parade and Ron Pope in autumn/winter (well, even more so than usual). And loads of different songs by various artists. I don't know. I like music all the time.
Dark skinny jeans, a jumper, ankle boots and a scarf (plus a warm coat if it's really chilly).
It sounds so weird but soup. Like, it doesn't sound like a treat but I tend to forget about any kind of warm food during the summer, so then autumn comes around and I get out the vegetable soup, and it tastes better than ever. Yeah. And roast dinners, although I'm not capable of making those myself, so I'll have to wait until I go home. Those, and mini marshmallows for hot chocolate, woop.
Favourite place to be?
Either at a park, in a cosy cafe or in bed. Also maybe the shower.
What are your favourite thing about autumn? Is it your favourite season too? Answer these questions too and let me know :)
Until next time.
