Love Autumn

It’s that time of year again, the awkward stage between Autumn and Winter season and what is a girl to do.

Around this time of year is where all the girlies and of course some lovely boys get out their extra thick woolly jumpers, their gorgeous new coats, hats, scarves and gloves and pre

tend to look so glamorous yet not look cold at the same time. So I thought I would put together some of the essentials which I always have around this time of year, with of course some new additions.

The Essential Winter Jumper & Socks:

Nothing beats the warm feeling of an extra large layer of a thick woolly jumper, the idea in which you can get all comfy in your extra large jumper, all cosy wrapped up watching the cheesiest but best Christmas TV Films. The garish the better, it’s your comfort dressing, it’s what you’re seeing and if anyone else disagrees with you then make them buy one and see then what they say. Make sure its fluffy, big, mahoosive lets say, wide, stretchy and of course thick. Decoration wise, if you want to go all cheesy with the massive rudolph nose sticking out or  the abstract theme everything is good and the more personalisation the better!

Please please please if you are going to have a great winter purchase, buy some amazing thick socks. You know those thick fleecy socks in which you feel like you’re constantly walking around in a huge blanket with that extra comfort. Again the garish the better, but if you can stick with the winter theme it’s best.

The Warm Hot Chocolate:

If they ask you for extra marshmallows say yes, if they ask you for extra whipped cream say yes and of course anything else, but the best suggestion if they ever say “Would you like a bit of Baileys” always say yes – let the magic happen! 

My favourite hot chocolate of past years is Costa Coffee’s black-forest gateau, the idea of cherry hot chocolate is just a dream and it is always amazing first thing in the morning before work as you’re walking there and dreading every step or as a treat afterwards. As well please make sure that you always have the biggest cup going and of course never ever waste any.

Cosy Decorations and Warm Scented Candles:

All throughout the year I have these two in my bedroom and areas around the house, they not only give the room some much needed decoration but also the feeling of personality and cosiness which is definitely needed this time of year. Of course you can go all out and really decorate (but that’s for another post), the decorations I have in mind are little fairy lights, the ones that light up certain areas of the room. These can be hung over your bed, around your favourite photos or for those romantic moments.

Christmas candles or any type of candle being it is just a wonderful feeling, the warmth of the flame and the scent of the candle depending on the mood adds such an essence to any room. As the evenings are drawing in, it adds that little extra sparkle to any room (especially when the power goes off !!) Please as always make sure that you are aware of the flames, you do not want a fire filled room.

The Make Up & Nails:

I love changing my make up throughout the seasons and one of my favourites is of course the winter season. I do not often like the colour red as I find it quite tacky but deep red in the winter is just delicious (especially in lipstick – I am loving Kate Moss – Matte Red – 107 Finish). The darker the look I believe is more luxurious and rich looking, again it makes you look all cosy of course but there is a fine line between the colour and the “Goth” look (unless you do like the look then go for it!)
The nails I go for darker colours or more neutral colours, as in my mind the bright colours is for the summer and spring time. So everything is darker to go along with the sky.

Thanks for reading and remember, wrap up warm in the morning but remember you’re probably going to be sweating by the afternoon and think why did I wear these warm layers haha!
