Autumn: Why It’s My Favourite Season

Posted in Lifestyle
hot chocolate

So many of my friends are moaning that the sunshine and any chance of summer has gone but I am the opposite I am so happy it’s Autumn. Autumn is my favourite season and i’m happy to embrace the colder weather. Here are some reasons why I love this time of year:

Hot chocolate and tea can become staple parts of my diet again 

During the winter months I will start every day with a mint/ green/ fruit tea and end the day with a hot chocolate because it’s a bit chilly and you want to warm up. In the summertime the last thing I want to do is warm myself up when i’m already hot and sweaty. I’ve recently discovered peanut butter hot chocolate which is insane!

You can sleep properly tucked up under the duvet 

Okay it might still be a tiny bit warm now but during the Summer you have the internal debate of do I sleep above the cover, under, arm in, arm out etc… But during Autumn there’s no debate, you get under the duvet and cuddle up.

netflix and book
It’s totally acceptable to stay in and watch TV all evening 

When it’s the summertime people message you to go to pub gardens, on outdoor walks or just generally enjoy the sunshine. When it’s dark and a bit cold that goes out of the window and there’s more chance of staying in, cuddled up and watching Netflix. I’m not a social recluse I swear.

It’s almost the time of the year when I bust out the Onesie

Yes I was against the Onesie to begin with but they’re warm, comfortable and the BEST thing to wear in the Autumn time. In the summertime it’s hard enough to wear any form of nightwear never mind a massive fluffy Cheshire cat costume (Yes I do have a Cheshire Cat onesie and it’s amazing!)

It means Christmas isn’t far away 

I have already seen Christmas things in shops now but when it hits Autumn and October properly kicks in you know it’s the month after next. Yes I have started my Christmas shopping and I am not ashamed of this. I love spoiling my family and friends and Christmas itself is a magical time of year. From now until a few days before Christmas my flat is usually full of presents in every available space!

We can wear boots again (hooray!) 

The Autumn time of the year means that I get to start wearing boots again and I have to admit i’m so happy about this. Boots are so much more comfortable than sandals or slip on shoes and it means I can wear unicorn print fluffy socks underneath and no one has to know!

I don’t have to dress summery 

I don’t dress appropriately for the seasons and in the summertime I wear pretty much the same stuff I do all year round but with cut off sleeves. I hate shorts and I don’t really like dresses or skirts that much, and I hate showing off the tops of my arms. Autumn means I can wear jeans and jumpers and not worry that i’m going to melt into a puddle.

Candles can be used all the time 

During the Autumn (and Winter) months I tend to light all of my Gingerbread/ Cinnamon/ Mulled Cider smelling candles and make my flat smell like you’ve stepped into a Christmas workshop. Lighting a candle when it’s warm and sunny outside just isn’t the same.

We get an extra hours sleep at the end of October 

That’s right October is when the clocks go back, so for one night we get an extra hour of sleep time (yay!) Sunday mornings have never felt as amazing as when you wake up at the same time as normal but feeling a little bit more refreshed. Or you could stay up until 2am and get the closest you’ll ever get to time travel.

Gig season is set to start back up

The summertime is full of festivals and very few bands tend to tour during the Summer which means that when the beginning of October kicks in gigs spring up all the time. October- December usually see’s me at around one a week and I can’t wait to see some of my favourite bands soundtrack my Autumn.

  • Yes, yes, yes! I do love autumn like you do. It's my third autumn and it's still a novelty for me but, oh bhoy I am loving the snuggles under the duvet and the boots and all. I can smell the Christmas around the corner as well. Hot chocolate drinks, I'm in! xx

    • It's amazing. I love being able to snuggle up with hot chocolate x

  • I hate Autumn coming as it means Winter is on its way, but you almost convinced me at the cuddling in the duvet, definitely a plus point.

    • I don't love winter quite as much (apart from the fact that it's both Christmas and my birthday) but Autumn is a nice in between x

  • Yes to so many of these! If it weren't for work I swear I would live in comfy clothes and watch movies and read in bed with candles and tea! I love autumn :)


    • I wish I could just hibernate in Autumn and snuggle up all day! I'd get so many series' watched! x

  • So many of our favourites are similar! Although gotta say that I found the peanut butter didn't live up to galaxy hot chocolate!
    Liquid Grain

    • I only ever use options hot chocolate because of the calories/ syn value within in (I do slimming world) but I love peanut butter so that one is great for me. x

  • Autumn ranks pretty highly up there in awesome seasons, for sure! :)

  • I just love Autumn themed post's they just get you in such a cosy mood ready for Halloween and christmas. Theres's some great tips in there. Thanks for posting . k x

    • Thanks. Writing it reminded me how much I love the season! x

  • I am not too sure whether I have a favourite season. I am not a fan of the cold and love the sunshine and heat, so probably Summer if I had to choose would be it for me!

    • I don't like it when it gets too cold. When it does I just snuggle up and hibernate x

  • That's so true, I love autumn so much! Nothing is better than cozy under duvet and watch my favorite tvseries and drink hot chocolate xx

  • Autumn is my favourite season and like you I love evenings in, duvet delights and boots, always boots. Plus I have really fond memories of walks with my late parents crunching colourful leaves. Great post.

    • That's lovely that you have such nice memories of the season! x

  • Oh yes, I completely agree and autumn's my favourite season too – halloween, Witches Brew Yankee Candle, hot chocolate, movies snuggled under a blanket, hot dinners and comfy clothes haha. What's not to love x

    • Oh that isn't a candle I have tried I might have to give it a go! x

  • Wearing boots again is a definite plus, I just hate dark mornings, I mean who wants to shower and get ready for work when it is dark outside x

    • There is that, but I have blackout curtains which don't get pulled until I am dressed so I never feel any different in the winter! x

  • Haha I love all of these reasons…though I tend to try and get away with them all year round haha

    • I always try to get away with them but a onesie just gets too hot in the summer time! x

  • Love Autumn, all the glorious colours of the leaves. Oh and the boots get bought out. I have a couple of cheapie 'ugg' ones that I slop about in. It's a good time of year!!

    • I need to get some more pairs of boots, there's nothing better than new boots 😀 x
