10 Favourite Things About Autumn/ Winter!

I don't know about you, but I flippin' love autumn and winter, it could potentially be my favourite time of the year. Anyway I thought I would share some of my love for autumn and winter in this post!

1. Christmas
How could I not mention Christmas? Obviously as it gets into the colder seasons Christmas isn't too far away. I love Christmas a lot as every is just so happy and the atmosphere is just amazing. I thought I might as well mention that this year I am doing Blogmas once again, so you can look forward to daily posts from me during the build up to Christmas.

2. Layering
I love autumn/ winter fashion in general fur, checks, scarves, grey, maroon, all of it but my favourite is layering. Wearing several things at once can look super trendy but it keeps you super warm at the same time. Every year I look forward to the autumn and winter collections because I think that it is the best part of the year for fashion.

3. Matte Lips
Again, I love the makeup trends during autumn and winter to but the best one for me is the matte lips. Usually I love a glossy/ wet lip look but in the colder months I just constantly wear a matte. There is something about matte lips that I find super autumnal but I love it.

4. Darker nights
I know a lot of people don't like the darker nights (including my parents) but I love them. When I walk home from school it is already so dark and there is something about it I find super comforting. One of the reasons I love it though, is the fact I can go to bed earlier and wake up later until it is brightening up which allows me to get more sleep.

5. Cosy nights in
I love to be in the comfort of my own home, wrapped in a blanket, drinking a hot chocolate and watching TV, in summer I never have night in, I am always out doing stuff but autumn and winter allow me to have a lot more chill time.

6. I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here
This is my all time favourite reality TV program, it's so good! It is really exciting when I'm a Celeb starts because it is just that extra step closer to Christmas. If you have never watched I'm a Celeb before, you should give it a go. When I am having my cosy nights in, this is what I am usually watching and it starts this weekend, I am so excited!

7. Festive shopping
Shopping is one of my all time favourite things to do but when it is autumn/ winter shopping, or even better, Christmas shopping, it is ten times better. I am one of those people that could spend hours shopping and Christmas shopping is my favorite things to do during the colder seasons. I love walking around the shops with warm doughnuts in my hand, lights all around and deciding what to get everyone. Not going to lie, I don't really like the spending money part though.

8. Hot chocolate
I cannot drink hot chocolate when it's not autumn or winter, it feels too wrong but when it is cold again outside, it's all I drink. With whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate chips it's my favourite hot drink.

9. Starting a new year
I love change, not so much that I do it on a weekly basis but enough that I don't get bored. A new year is always a great thing for me because I love a fresh start, a clean slate and a new beginning. Not going to lie, I don't celebrate new years in any interesting way, usually just a home and I fall asleep before midnight but the idea behind it, I love.

10. Cold Mornings
In my opinion, it's better to be too cold then too hot just because it is a lot easier to solve. I love my cold mornings, when it is frosty, I have a hot chocolate (can you tell I really like them?), and I am covered in scarves, tights and fluffy jumpers. Again, I just feel super cosy when it's cold even though it can be a pain sometimes, cold mornings are amazing.
