5 Things I Learnt This Autumn 2016


-- Autumn glorious Autummnn --

Can you tell I just blooming love Autumn? My passion for the season is all over my blog, YouTube and Instagram (like every other blogger) and it's getting serious. I did a post last year on 10 things I learnt from the season, and you guys loved it, so I'm back with a 2016 version but with 5 things I've learnt this year. So sit back and prepare to feel how relatable this post is...

001: It's a life or death mission to find tinned pumpkin puree. Loads of people have been saying you get can them in Waitrose or Tesco but I've gone to countless supermarkets and come out empty handed. You can say I've died of hope every time and all I want to do is bake a pumpkin pie. *Cries into my laptop keyboard*

002: It's a heavenly feeling finally being able to put on flannel pajamas and watch bake off with the fire on. PLUS I can snuggle under a throw! I love Autumn because the coldness gives way to being all cosy indoors with early evening sunsets and I just love it.

003: No matter how hard I try as a white girl, it is true that you can get sick of Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks. I'll try not to milk it as hard next year, but that won't stop me drinking them in the form of frappuccinos while they still last in the shop... (They taste sooo good this way!)

004: There's nothing better than going for a walk. I've learnt that getting up early for a walk at 10am with a jumper, coat and scarf on and having a wander round the local park to see all the colours of the leaves is so refreshing. Your mind can clear, appreciate the season and you can take a few leaves home for flatlays - it's a win win yay.

005: You can never have too many baths. The Lush Halloween collection is out at this time of year, and nothing can beat buying all the products, and using them throughout the month. It's absolute bliss especially when the products smell toasty and you can have a lovely hot soak.

What have you guys learnt from Autumn this year?

  1. It's funny because I just went for a walk this morning! I've been thinking that I should go for more walks around the park, and it was great. I didn't find any beautiful leaves to take as blogging props though, so I'll have to go again! To me, autumn is also the time to enjoy hot drinks in the evenings - I can't live without my tea or hot chocolate at that time of year! :D
