Burnt orange - the colour of Autumn. Is it possible for one colour to sum it all up? When I think of Autumn, I think of autumn leaves covering the ground, pumpkins in various shapes and sizes, multiple new autumnal flowers at work to play around with and consuming copious amounts of tea. Evening walks in the crisp air and then coming inside for a cup of tea whilst snuggling up on the sofa. I know I mention this all the time and I don't mean to sound like a broken record but for me the transition from Summer into Autumn is the best time of the year. When we went into town the other day I spotted all the new things that has been brought out for Autumn and when this happens my mind instantly seems to think Autumn is here. Not to mention colours like burnt orange, mustard yellow and deep red really help set the scene. Who could possibly resist getting swapped up in the autumnal spirit?

I've been browsing the shelves in all of my favorite shops for boots, coats and scarves. I've fallen in love with bown-copper-burnt orange clothing and no one I know is more excited for Autumn than I am. When Summer transitions into Autumn shopping becomes my favorite thing! Updating my wardrobe with autumnal staples and wearing layer upon layer of chunky knits is what I've been looking forward to all year. The only thing missing now is the feeling of breathing in the crisp air, to the sound of crunching leaves under your boots, when the temperature has slightly started to drop as the evenings get darker. I absolutely love it when Autumn comes!

We picked these the other night.

For breakfast this morning I had greek yogurt with blackberries and banana slices. A cup of black currant tea and toast!
Oh, and a sneaky shortbread biscuit..

October is by far my favorite month and in my opinion, apart from christmas, the best time of the year. I'm sad to see October end. But luckily for me, November and December are some of my favorites aswell and I've already cheated and went out and purchased a few new christmas decorations. We've now got ourselves a tree, baubles and wrapping. But to keep autumn around a little longer I did some online shopping and ordered the complete box with all seven seasons of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. This used to be one of my absolute favorite tv series when I was younger and I thought why not relive the whole experience again? I always tend to go for shows like Buffy and the Vampire Diaries in the autumn and since I watched (and read) the Vampire Diaries last year I thought I'd go for Buffy this time.

β€œLife starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
- F. Scott Fitzgerald πŸ‚


​​​​​​​​​​​​​Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter. Evenings get darker and the weather gets colder. There's nothing better than bundling up in knitwear and going for a walk in the cold crisp air. This year I'm sure there will be a lot more walks than last year as we've now got our little pug in the family! To me autumn is a fresh start. I like to redecorate, update my wardrobe and stock up on as much tea as possible! As you may or may not know I'm a huge fan of reading and it's one of my favorite things to do. I'm also a bit of a film enthusiast and I have an on going list of films to watch every year, Sweeney Todd being one of them. Autumn is the time of the year when I'm at my happiest. It's when I feel the most inspired and everything feels more exciting and there's so many things to be looking forward to. Working in a flower shop summer can feel a bit slow and autumn is one of the times when I feel we get to bring out our creative sides again. Not to mention all the new pots, plants and tiny bits and bobs we use for decoration. When it comes to autumn one of my favorite things is when you get home in the evening and the whole house smells of food and apple pie. And since this is the time to invest in new things I've purchased a new baking book in the hopes of improving on my baking skills. What better time to curl up on the couch with a mug of hot tea and a plate of baked goods to munch on in front of the tv.
