Summer seems to have well and truly disappeared, and now it’s time to fold away our shorts and t-shirts for another year. Some people find replacing the flip flops for their winter boots a little depressing, but there is so much to look forward too this season, as we embrace the falling leaves and the air gets crisper. Autumn is one of my favourite times of year.
As Anne of Green Gables says: “I’m so thankful that I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
The weather is perfect, not too hot, and not too cold. Things aren’t quite freezing yet, but there is still a nice cool breeze in the air. In fact, often times Autumnal weather can pleasantly surprise us. The
Danish term hygge is still in full force, with its comfort, cosiness, and hibernating style.
One of the downfalls of summer is that we hardly find the time to cook, as we don’t want to be slaving away over a hot oven during a heat wave. We are officially fed up with barbecues and salads and craving good food. Now that Autumn is here and Winter is on its way, it’s time to get back in the kitchen. Enjoy the comfort of this season’s hearty stews, pies and roasts.
Darker days mean cosying up with a blanket in front of your favourite Netflix show (or let’s face it, X-Factor is back on. We all know we’re watching it, right)?! But why not get even cosier with a new recliner chair so you can put your feet up by the fire after a long day. Then you can enjoy some TV guilt free, surrounded by cinnamon scented candles. Bliss. We’ve all watch Joey and Chandler in their recliners green with envy (or maybe thats just me), so it would be a good way to get comfortable and embrace the season of ‘hygge.’ If you have any mobility issues, then a riser recliner chair from Fenetic Wellbeing, could be the thing for you instead. Still comfortable and cosy.
Let’s not forget that now that the sun has disappeared, surplus amounts of hot chocolate is totally justifiable. It would be rude not to include this as part of your Autumnal ritual, right? A pair of new, soft pajamas, loungewear or a onesie is a must during the cooler months. This combined with cosy slippers will have you completely and utterly relaxed. As you drag yourself away from your recliner and into the bedroom, a double tog duvet will provide you with extra warmth and luxury, guaranteeing you a good night’s sleep.
Move over summer, we’re ready for pumpkins, crunchy leaves and ultimate comfort. Snuggle up in your cosiest knitwear, cashmere blankets and all things Autumn; this season is good for the soul.
What are you looking forward to about the season?

The hot chocolate has already made many an appearance in the evenings lol.. all topped with marshmallows of course!
Sounds yummy! Who can resist?!
I can’t wait for Autumn/Winter and to snuffle under a blanket with a hot chocolate! I’m so over summer haha x
We had hot chocolate last night 😉
I love this time of year although only when I’m warm inside ha ha
I love every season. So looking forward to getting some orange in my insta feed xx
Our feed is full of autumn inspo! Orange everything!
I am loving the Autumn posts! Any excuse to have a hot chocolate right? I have been investing in cosy socks and PJ’s for the rainy mornings, have to make the rain a little more fun somehow!
Sounds like a great idea, nothing better than new fluffy pjs!
I love me some hygge, you can’t beat it. This time of year is just so beautiful and I get excited for Halloween it’s my fav, although I also think I need to invest in a recliner now hehehe! I also now want to watch friends lolz.
Yes yes yes! 🙂
The Anne of Green Gables quote is just perfect, why have i never read that one before! My whole year revolves around autumn, i love it! Hygge has just made it all even better, soft socks, fluffy blankets, hot chocolates and cinnamon scented candles, what can be better? However apparently Hygge is old news and it’s all about Lagom now (the Swedish version)! x
Love all those hygge things! I love how popular autumn is!
I absolutely LOVE Autumn too. I love everything about it (but I feel like I say that about every season). The colours, the smells, the food, the blankets and cosyness. It’s all just perfect.
I remember the episodes with Joey and Chandler with their reclining chairs. Classics!
Ditto to everything!
