Well Hey There Autumn

What is this? Two posts this weekend? I honestly don't think this has ever happened before! It's probably down to the fact that I should be revising for my exams in two weeks but as per usual i'm procrastinating and doing everything I possibly can to avoid revising (I promise I'll get round to it tomorrow, don't worry).
At 2am this morning (Sunday 27th October 2013) British Summer officially came to an end. You could almost hear the joyful screams of teenagers all over the country, last night, at the news that we got an extra hour in bed.
But now summer is officially over (although when it comes to the weather, summer ended about a month and a half ago) we're into the autumn/winter period. Personally, this is one of my favourite times of year, for a few reasons, and I thought I'd share some of those reasons with you!
Everyone loves a good old cosy oversized jumper during winter! They're so cuddly and comfy and they look so cute!
I think Autumn is the prettiest time of year (except for maybe winter when we have really heavy snow, but that rarely actually happens) when all the leaves are gorgeous shades of orange, red and brown and they all fall off the trees.
Autumn/Winter is the time of year when all the candles in my room make a re-appearance and are used non stop. Yankee Candles are my favourite candles in the whole world, especially they're Christmas scents, so I spend most of my life in the cute gift section of my local antiques centre (also known as Yankee Candle heaven) buying far too many candles.
One of my favourite holidays (is it a holiday? I think it is...) apart from Christmas! I've always loved fireworks and how pretty they are. I can remember one bonfire night when I was younger, I went on a walk around my local village in the dark with my guide pack and about 100+ rainbows/brownies/guides with lanterns, and then we watched the firework display. It was beautiful and I wish I could do it every year!
I love Halloween. It's a holiday were it's completely ok to eat far too many sweets, what's not to love? One aspect of Halloween I especially like are the Halloween films you always see around this time of year. My all time favourite has to be Hocus Pocus!
Although I drink hot chocolate all year round, there's something special about a lovely warm mug of it at this time of year.
I'm not going to put Christmas on this list, purely because i'll be here forever talking about how much I love it! But one of my favourite parts of Christmas is the Christmas music! I think it becomes ok to openly listen to Christmas music in November, although I rarely follow that rule (I'm actually listening to it now oops). It really helps you to get in a festive Christmassy mood and I think each Christmas song has a particular memory of listening to it/singing it etc that comes with it, which is fab.
If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know I'm obsessed with Lush! They do the most amazing Christmas products ever ever ever and I just love them so much. To be honest, Lush is the reason I never have any money in the winter! I'm going to Lush at some point in the next week to splurge on their Christmassy goodies so I'll do a haul.
Autumn/Winter is roast dinner season for me, as I seem to eat more roast dinners in November and December than I do in the rest of the year! I love a good roast dinner so this excites me so much!
What are your favourite things about Autumn/Winter?
Lots of Love
