Why I Love Autumn

Blogging about why Autumn is the best season is a bit of a blogging cliché isn’t it. However I genuinely do love Autumn…and Winter. I prefer the colder months, maybe because I was born in Winter? Who knows but it’s definitely my favourite time of year and here’s why:

The crisp cold weather and changing colours

It’s the first glimpse of things to come. You feel that little bite in the air and can start layering up clothes. Everything looks pretty as it starts to change colour.  I love walking in the woods in this weather crunching through the leaves, or now, going for walks along the beach. You can finally get out and about and not have to worry about sun cream and coming back a hot sweaty mess! What’s not to like?!

The Coffee shops up their game

Coffee shops really up their game in Autumn starting with Starbucks. I’m a Costa girl through and through but for those couple of weeks that Pumpkin Spiced Lattes come out I switch allegiance (but only for those few weeks) They also change their cups and then the Christmas ranges start. I’m not going to comment on that just now though as that’s a whole other post.

The warming food

Autumn is the perfect time to make use of your slow cooker to make casseroles, stews, soups and chillis. All those warming foods and you can actually make them pretty healthy too if you add lots of veggies and butternut squash! Then when you’ve eaten all the veggies, you can drink more hot chocolate! Autumn is great because you can drink hot chocolate guilt free because hey, you’re just using it to warm up right?!

It’s the start of the celebrations

Halloween, Bonfire Night, Black Friday hey we don’t celebrate it but I’ll take the sales it brings any day and then the lead up to Christmas, it’s just the best time and the decorations are fun.

September Roundup

September seems to have been and gone in a flash and as a result I don’t feel like I’ve done much but never the less. Here is my September roundup!

Firstly in September I won a competition! I’ve never won anything before in my life so I was pretty amazed when I won this gorgeous palette on a giveaway over at Sophie’s Blog

One evening after work we decided to go to JoJo Gelato in Fareham. I had this scrummy Nutella and Cookie supreme crepe. It was so good, especially after a hard day at work.

We also visited the Waitrose Farm Shop. Here is the post about our visit.

In Lee-on-the-Solent there was a super low tide on 18th September. I’m still discovering new things about living by the sea and this was one of them. The photo doesn’t do it justice but the sea really was a lot further out than usual.

At the end of September we went to Wales for 4 nights. I’ve never visited Wales before so it was nice to explore somewhere new. There’s a more detailed post to follow.

In September I did 8 blog posts which I think might be a record for me! If you missed any, they’re linked below:

Disney X Cath Kidston – Winnie The Pooh

So the first of the Disney X Cath Kidston collaboration has launched and already some of the items are sold out. They’ve released the Winnie the Pooh prints first. I’ll not be ordering anything as I’m holding out for the Minnie and Mickey items but here are my favourites from the range.

Balloon spot raglan dress and elasticated waist skirt

The dress is £75 and the skirt is £40. I love the cut of the dress and the cute cap sleeves but also love how if you have just the skirt you can team it with a plain top so it’s not as much print all at once.

A Day in the Hundred Acre Wood Placement Sweat £35

A cute design on a sweater that’ll be perfect for keeping warm now the days are turning chillier. This is Limited Edition so be sure to keep your eyes out for it coming back in stock.

Balloon spot mini reversible messenger bag £35

I have a couple of this style of bag from Cath Kidston and they are so perfect for when you have a lot to carry. They’re surprisingly roomy and with it being reversible, its like having two bags in one!

Bramley Sprig modal PJ set £40

I love the flowers on these and it’s a true Cath Kidston print. These are Limited Edition too so grab them while you can.

Balloon Spot Breakfast Cup & Saucer £16

image6

Cath Kidston crockery lasts so well. I have a few cups and saucers in various London prints and they look lovely on display but wash well and are sturdy.

There are also home ware and baby items available but these 6 are my favourites. I’m so excited to see what they release next!

Disney X Cath Kidston

The other night my phone started going crazy. Notifications were flooding in to all platforms of social media. My friends know me so well they were alerting me to the fact that two of my favourite companies were joining forces. Disney and Cath Kidston!!! This makes me so excited.

The first pictures released on Cath Kidston’s Instagram were of Winnie the Pooh. My heart sank a little, I’m not a huge Winnie the Pooh fan but then..there it was…a Minnie Mouse print!

I’m also loving that there is a Polka Dot Mickey print too!

All photos courtesy of Cath Kidston’s Instagram. This was just a sneak peek at what they’re doing but then one of my favourite Instagrammers @disneyfind posted this little beauty!

I pretty much need everything from the top row! And the bottom right picture is perfection. Some of the Cath Kidston accessories will go perfectly with the bag there.

I literally can not wait to find out more. Hurry up September!
