I might not be the most fashionable person but like most people, I am a person that loves Autumn. The weather, the colours, the changing of the seasons and the new energies that a new season brings – ugh, I love it all! Although Winter will always have my heart as my favourite season, Autumn comes a close second and I’m particularly enjoying it this year after an incredibly long, hot and unbearable Summer that we had here in the UK. Out with the shorts and in with the leggings and jumpers, I’m back to where I’m feel most like me and I think that shows with how motivated and inspired I am in the Autumn compared to the past 4 months. I’m not about to start bombarding you with information about what to wear this fall (because quite frankly, it’s up to you babes) I’m going to share some of my closest essentials – and home essentials – for this time of the year!
Over the last few months, I’ve seen loads of my favourite bloggers collaborating with each other on posts and quite frankly guys… I felt a little left out *wipes tear*. I kid but seriously, I’ve seen a ton of blogger collaborations and I wanted in because they look fun and it’s always a chance to support another blogger at the same time so win, win in my opinion! Lisa from Lisa’s Notebook, who’s became a good blogging friend over the last year asked me if I’d like to collaborate in October so of course I said yes and of course I suggested a Autumn-themed collaboration.
We might be at the tail end of Summer, with the nights getting longer, the weather getting colder and the pumpkin spice latte’s out in full force but that certainly doesn’t mean that we have to limit our time outside and stop enjoying the great outdoors, just because the temperature has gone down a notch. I absolutely love Autumn and Winter, they’re my favourite times of year. There’s nothing quite like stepping outside your front door and feeling that crisp air that marks the end of the long, hot Summer.
I’m about to present to you the most overused and generic sentence in blogging history. When Jenems contacted me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I jumped at the chance. But this really was the case here because they weren’t just sending me any ol’ jewellery… oh no. I was going to receive some pieces from their brand new Autumn range and if you know me at all, you’ll know that I am down for all things Autumn. Basic Autumn bitch right here.
Autumn is upon us! Technically, it started on Friday 22nd September in the UK (also my mum’s birthday) so it’s socially acceptable to embrace all the Autumn tings now we’re officially in the season. Although what’s the betting we get a heat-wave now? But anyway, it’s the season for all us basic bitches (absolutely nothing wrong with being a basic bitch) to come out of our shells and to flood the blogoverse with pumpkins , fairy-lights and candles galore. Here’s my own basic-ass list of things you can do to fully embrace the most wonderful season of all.
Anyone that knows me knows that I freaking hate summer. I hate it. I hate it I hate it I hate it with a roaring passion. The heat; nope. The bugs; nope. The hay fever; nope. All of it is just a big fat nope from me. My favourite time of the year is Autumn, especially that first day when summer is coming to an end and you step outside and the air feels fresher and crisper for the first time in months and you can feel Autumn on its way. Ugh, that feeling is just beautiful and brings with it all sorts of nice feelings for Autumn and a new season with new goals and new things to focus on.
I don’t really do an awful lot of tag posts anymore – I tend to find the questions too hard, especially book related ones and not being able to find the perfect book fit for each question stresses me the hell out. So I’m pretty picky when I’m tagged in these sort of posts but, I was tagged in The Autumn Reading Tag by the lovely Laura Noakes and this looked like a super cute and fun tag to do so I wanted to give it a try. I love Autumn too and I am the happiest person in the world now that summer is finally over and we can go back to you know, not spontaneously combusting every time we step out the front door. So here I am, embracing Autumn and all that jazz… (credit to Amy Jane Smith who created the tag)
