As you guys may or may not know, autumn is my favourite season. There’s beautiful aspects to all seasons, but I always find myself being extra excited about autumn. It also happens to be many people’s least favourite season. I can understand that, but I definitely disagree! Today I thought I’d share with you why I love autumn so much. Let’s go!
Sweaters & layers
One of the biggest reasons why I love autumn, is that autumn fashion is my absolute favourite. You get to wear dark, muted colours (burgundy!), layered outfits, cute ankle boots, leather… And if you don’t feel like putting together something layered and complicated, you can just throw on a comfy sweater. Oh, and let’s not forget about hats! I love love love wearing hats, I feel like they elevate any outfit.
Productivity goes up
When it’s super hot out in summer, I find myself less able to get a lot of work done. All I want is to lie on a blanket outside with a cold drink and good company. I’m too sweaty for makeup, studio lights are death, and I just lack motivation in general. Rainy weather may not be the most beautiful, but it sure helps you sit down and get stuff done.
Ok, I admit, I do drink hot beveraged all throughout the year. But they’re just so much more enjoyable when the rain is beating down on the window and you have some candles burning! Also, bring on the autumnal flavours. After a whole summer of lemony and minty teas, I’m ready for some serious spice.
Speaking of candles, they’re back! Lighting a bunch of candles in the evening is possible again now that the sun goes down a little sooner. I love lighting candles all around my room, and throwing a scented one into the mix. Which, by the way, my favourite scented candles around this time are the woodsy, heavier ones.
Getting comfortable under a blanket with a good TV show and some snacks. Need I say more?
I love the look of autumn. The look of all the leaves turning red, yellow, brown and orange is mesmerising and absolutely beautiful.
You can get away with a lot more in autumn. Think dark lipstick, dark nail polish, thick eyeliner. I like the no-makeup makeup look, but after having worn it for a couple of months I’m more than ready for a change.
Although Halloween isn’t traditionally celebrated in the Netherlands, it’s quickly gaining popularity and I love it. I can’t wait to pull out my SFX makeup and work on some awesome scary tutorials for you all! (Speaking of which, I really need to start planning for Halloween month…)
I’m so excited for apple and pumpkin flavoured everything! I love these flavours and I can’t wait to enjoy them again. I’ve actually been craving pumpkin for a few weeks now but can’t justify paying as much for it as it costs now, so I can’t wait until they’re back in season!
