Pumpkin Spiced Lattes
I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but somehow, come Autumn, I always end up cozied in a coffee shop with one of these bad boys in my hand (alongside a giant mince pie or treacle tart if I'm feeling particularly Autumn-y).
Warm Colours & Fallen Leaves
Call me romantic, but I can't help but smile when I see streets scattered with beautiful red and gold leaves. It also makes a great background for outfit shoots.
So now I can ditch all the Summer smoothies and bowls of fruit and start to hibernate with a giant bowl of stew followed by some sort of sticky, syrupy pudding. Yum.
I can begin the annual stocking up of gorgeously warm wool and fur coats (faux, please), not to mention the ranges of scarves, hats and boots. Sorry bank account.
Now's the time when all the blockbusters make their releases. Gone Girl and Maze Runner have just been ticked off the list, now waiting for The Hunger Games and The Hobbit! But of course, we can't forget about the golden oldies that we associate with this time of year: I'm talking Hocus Pocus, Practical Magic and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Popcorn's in the microwave as we speak.
Yes, it's not just clothing that I stock up on come Autumn. Hello, giant throws and blankets, fluffy pillows and candles (soooooo many candles).
I've decided that I have no patience for carving. This year, designs will be drawn on, and contents used for homemade pumpkin spiced lattes. Drool.
It's a tradition in my books to break out the Baileys once October hits. No more Summery cocktails for me!
Normally, I cannot stand the thought of baking (I leave that to my rather talented sister), but there's just something about this time of year that makes me want to crack out the mixer and get making! Sugar cookies and cupcakes here we come!
Now that I don't have to feel guilty about staying inside all day, I can dump myself on the sofa with my boyfriend under a huge blanket and catch up with The Walking Dead.
