Hello November - Autumn Hopes and Autumn Tag

I can't believe it is already October, this year has flown by far too fast. The beginning of summer feels  like it was only last week and the start of September feels like it was only yesterday. I would be lying if I said I was not excited for October to come around as Autumn and Winter are by far my favourite times of year. I have recently got very excited for Christmas slowly approaching, I have always been Mother Christmas because I love how everyone tends to get together and have a generally happy outlook on life around Christmas and Winter time and it always makes me happy.

I couldn't think of a better way of bringing a touch of Autumnal joy to my blog than by creating an Autumn Tag!

What signifies the start of Autumn for you?

Autumn really begins for me when I am finally able to wear my favourite coats and not overheat as soon as the sun comes out. Wearing coats and layering makes me much happier than it should do and I am not ashamed to admit it because it all makes me very very happy! Warm coats and scarves and hot chocolates are my highlights of Autumn and something I look forward to every year.
Also finally seeing the beautiful leaves this time of year never fails to make me happy!

What is your favourite Autumn colour?

This year I have two favourites for two different things! In clothes this year I have become absolutely obsessed with burgundy and the wine reds in my boots and jumpers and will no doubt acquire a large amount of these shades in my Autumn and Winter wardrobe. I love these colours the most at this time of year because they are still dark, as I am a lover of black or monotone shades of clothing however it means I can add some beautiful rich colour to my style!
My second favourite colour is oranges and deep burn orange colours for home accessories! I am an absolute lover of decorating my room to the time of year, sometimes its more obsessing over things I wish I could buy on pinterest (follow me here!). My absolute favourite shop for really great quality home accessories is HomeSense, those who haven't heard of it, its basically the home version of TK Maxx and is owned by them, you can find really amazing great quality items at lower the retail prices. Another really fab place to look for home bits and bobs is Matalan, I have fallen in love with so many bits on their Christmas and Autumn sections online! Burnt orange is such a warm and cosy colour and its my idea of heaven this time of year. 

What is your favourite Autumn fashion trend?


What is your favourite Autumn drink?

If I am out and about I always love to order myself a Peppermint Hot Chocolate from Starbucks if I am in town, and Costa do some really amazing signature Hot Chocolates closer to Christmas I love getting. At home, a good cup of tea is always a winner for me (in my new massive burnt orange mug from HomeSense of course!) or one of my favourite flavoured teas, Apple and Cinnamon. 

Whats your favourite music to listen to in Autumn time?

I love feeling cosy in Autumn as I am sure most people do! Therefore when I am sat alone in my room for some reason I am really into Jazz playlists they just give me a really homely feel. As it gets closer to Christmas Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble are a must! I have no shame in admitting the Michael Bubles Christmas album has already been played and sang along to numerous times in my car.

Staple Autumn item of clothing?

Its got to be boots, its a very close second being a big cosy jumper but boots are a must for me as the weather gets colder and colder it saves my poor toes from freezing! I always get really cold feet in winter so boots and thick cosy socks are a staple for me at this time of year!
