Falling into Autumn.

It’s getting into that time of year again when everyone falls in love with Autumn and all the seasonal delights which come with it. In the UK we seem to get to the back end of August, having wished for warmer weather for months, and everyone is just so ready for Autumn. Those crisp dark evenings which draw in earlier by the day, the sweet smell of the burning harvest lingering in the air as you leave the office, all those gorgeous new outfits to buy in new key shades of the season, the pop of a berry toned lip or nails, adding instant style to any look. It’s a total blogger cliche, and I’m sure there are far too many posts floating around the internet about everyone’s “favourite season”…

But I love how, in the UK, there is always something around the corner to look forward to. Once the excitement and fun of Christmas is over, when we’re all feeling totally fed up of over indulgence (yes, even I can get sick of tooooooo much chocolate and cheese!) there’s a nice quiet January to chill, catch up on Netflix & promise yourself you’ll go to the gym. Then comes the fun of that first big night out at the end of January to toast the fact that we all made it through the.most.boring month of the year or to simply enjoy the pay check you’ve been dying for. Next, Valentine’s Day is upon us (like it or loathe it) and before you know it – Easter is here and Hi, more chocolate indulgence and a lovely long weekend full of feasting is due. Well, once that’s all over all hail the double ended May bank holidays and then boom you’re on the highway to Summer. Fun packed with holidays, picnics, weekends spent outdoors, and anything other than having to spend every day at indoor soft plays trying to entertain children (hell).
