Oh Autumn, How I Love Thee

Summer is (finally) behind us. Don't hate, you've all had more than enough sun this year, I just prefer the colder of the four seasons.
Here are just twelve reasons I've got a lot of love Autumn/Winter.

1) Layers. Layers, layers and more layers. The more layers the better in my eyes. A bit like Joey on that episode of friends.
I'm not a seasonal dresser. I wear black tights all year around, I don't do getting my legs out.

Specifics -
I love 'beanie weather'. I don't really have a face that suits hats but I got really into beanies last Winter and I love throwing one to add to the cosy look.
Turtle necks are my favourite. I'm definitely planning on stocking up on every colour I can get my hands on whilst they're in season. They're so classic and versatile.

2)Boots. I love boots, they are my favourite footwear. I'm 100% not a fan of feet. I don't do sandals or flip flops because I'm a firm believer that, unless you're on a beach, there's no reason for me to be able to see your toes. Put them away. My favourite boots always tend to fall apart mid spring which means I have to wait months for them to come back into season to restock. Annoying!

3) Getting to watch Hocus Pocus without people pointing out it's a halloween film. I obviously already know that, I just love it.

4) My favourite candle being stocked again. I only burn one candle and I don't care what time of year it is. I love the Glade Spiced Apple and Cinnamon candle but it's limited edition through Autumn and Winter so I literally form a collection to last me the year. I'm down to my last three but luckily they've resurfaced in shops.

5) Tea. Flavoured tea to be more exact. Lipton Warming Apple and Cinnamon and Twinings Gingerbread Green Tea are my favourites. They also help make any room smell awesome.

6) Rain. Call me crazy but I just love the stuff. I really like the smell and there's something seriously refreshing about rain.
7) Thunderstorms are even better. I love the sound of the thunder and lightning talking to each other. Not to mention how peaceful and clear the air gets after a big storm.

Especially when......

8) Drinking wine in front of the fire. There's nothing like coming home from work and cosying up in front of the fire with a glass of wine to watch tv.

9) Having the electric blanket on making it super hard to get out of bed. I tend to snooze my alarm a lot more in Autumn.

10) Flushed cheeks from being out in the cold.

11) When the leaves become the same colour as my hair.

12) I love finishing work when it's dark. I'm not sure why I like this so much but it's been dark when I've left all this week and I just find it really satisfying to walk home in the dark.

What are your favourite things about Autumn?
