10 reasons to love Autumn
Packing away the suncream, the short shorts and summer swimwear can only mean one thing...Autumn is upon us. AND WE LOVE IT.
- because with nights getting longer, TV getting better and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes back in at Starbucks, how could we not?
- No Netflix needed. There's always something on the telly! Whether it's Strictly, X Factor, or a brand new drama series you're spoilt for choice.
- Autumn colours. The reds, the oranges, the yellows...all very pretty. All perfect for you edgy Instagram photographers out there. (Deviantart.com)
- Leaves, everywhere! Dive into them, kick them at each other, throw them around. These days it's more exciting than seeing your presents on Christmas morning. Admit it! (Huffingtonpost.com)
- That winter wardrobe. Woolly scarves, cosy hats, onesies, ALL THE LAYERS. We love them, and what's more? They're comfy!
- Cold weather = hot drinks. A hot chocolate before bed, a warm cider, mulled wine and Starbucks' seasonal menu. Oh my.
- The clocks go back. So, an extra hour in bed to make you feel top notch for that 9am lecture.
- Staying in > going out. Missing that Friday night out for a film, a hot chocolate and your big fur blanket is now completely acceptable, and boys, you can even get away with a few Xbox nights in if you like!
- Mmm food. Whether it's hearty soups, steaming stews or chocolate puddings with hot fudge sauce, autumnal dishes are divine.
- Halloween. For all of you who love to dress up, are into your art and all things creative or just looking for an excuse to party.
Pumpkins at the ready!
- Countdown to Christmas. That's right! It's officially acceptable to start putting together that list for santa and tucking into those mince pies.
So, throw on your onesie and make the most of Autumn before the Winter arrives...
