5 Ways to Embrace Autumn


With the first day of autumn a few weeks ago and October just beginning, I felt this blog was appropriate and a little change from my wedding blogs! I was walking around the local park the other day and realised how much I loved the autumn and how good it made me feel! It got me excited about autumn and I started thinking about all the things I love to do in the autumn! I thought it was only fair to share it with you on my journey of happiness!

So here goes:

  1. Go for a walk

Take a walk and take in what you see, the trees are changing colour and they are BEAUTIFUL right now! Good excuse to chuck on your favourite coat!

  1. Create a cosy place

Turn on a lamp and light a candle. As the evenings start to get a little darker earlier, embrace it! Turn off your main lights, turn on your cosy lamps and light your favourite scented candle; I am currently loving the candle below from Anthropologie. I got it a little while ago so it’s not there anymore but they have loads of amazing candles, I also like ‘Angel Food‘. Candle light and lamp light can make a room so cosy and if you can hear the rain outside, even better!


  1. Get those knits out (haha)

Grab that big cosy jumper that’s been packed away for the summer. I am absolutely a summer girl; I love flips flops, vests and flowers in my hair however, for some reason, this year, I could not wait to get my cosy jumpers out and I am fully embracing them! I packed away my shorts today and, for the first time in a long time, this didn’t make me sad! This jumper I am wearing is a Topshop number from last year so isn’t available anymore but if you click here, it’ll take you to a beauty of a jumper that’s very much on my autumn/winter wish list!


4. Cover those feet up

As I said, I love my flip flops but, a good warm sock on a cold evening feels just as good! Dig out your big cosy socks or slippers. I love my Bedroom Athletics slipper boots and feel so cosy with them on! I also love big chunky socks from Fat Face or Joules! I tell you what I also love, are socks that stay soft, I swear by these Bamboo socks by Braintree, I LOVE THEM! They stay so soft after every wash! I REALLY recommend! I get mine from No.47 in Narberth but you can get them online here! Honestly, BEST SOCKS EVER! A pair of these under my slipper boots, oooo!!

5. Duvet day

There’s no better excuse than a chilly day outside (or even better rainy), to have a duvet day! It’s a little harder to justify in the summer when its hot outside but it’s never more perfect than when its blowing a little, getting dark earlier and raining outside to drag the duvet downstairs and put on a film or Netflix!

So there you have it, my top tips on how to embrace autumn! I’ve ALWAYS been a huge fan of summer and I still am however, autumn is fast becoming a favourite of mine!

Happy autumn everyone!
