5 Fave Autumnal Things


I bet many of us can agree, when I say autumn is beautiful and definitely needed. If you ask me autumn should just continue until it's spring again. Who needs winter and -20 degrees in their lives? That would obvisouly be ecologically messed up, so in all honesty, I'm very glad we still have a season we can gladly call winter with all that snow. That being here, up north, where I live. But autumn is amazing. I feel like spring and summer are the seasons to get up, go and do, but autumn is all about relaxing, getting cosy and pampering, which in my opinion sounds just perfect. Listing just five things I like about this season, was honestly blooming hard work haha, there are so many things I could have mentioned, but these are definitely my faves and they are in no particular order.

Scarfs
Scarves are my number 1 fashion accessory and I wear them almost all year round. The reason why I love them in the autumn time is that the colder it gets, the bigger the scarves and the warmer my neck. I seriously have a long and delicate neck, which doesn't get along with cold weather very well. So scarves are my saviour and I have many. I also find them really handy in meetings because if a meeting is really long and I have to sit down for a really long time, I get cold. And if I have a huge scarf with me, I can easily wrap myself inside it, stay warm and look like a sensible human being at the same time :D 

Candles
I don't generally burn candles in the spring and summer time, but the minute summer turns into autumn I bring my huge candle collection out again. As it gets darker and colder, candles bring some pretty light to those cosy evenings under the duvet. Most of my candles are from Ikea. They have some lovely affordable ones, which smell so lovely! Now that I've moved closer to Helsinki, I also have one of the very few shops in Finland that sell Yankee Candles, and I might have visited it already a couple of times. Somehow they never let me leave that shop with empty hands...How dare they.


Bold & berry lipsticks
Bold lipsticks are again another thing, which tend to stay at the very back of my drawers during the summer. But all the gorgeous autumnal colours, such as mustard yellow, rusty red and forest green, almost demand a dark lipstick. They just go hand in hand. And it makes physically sense to wear a dark lip: it gets darker outside so you obviously need to have darker lipstick, otherwise the shade won't show! My fave bold lipstick at the moment is the Rimmel Kate Moss in 107 and the best berry shade is Brave by Mac. Those two have been on my lips constantly!

Nature
I'm sure we can't argue how pretty nature gets, just before the leaves fall completely off the trees and everything turns gray. When the sun shines and it's still clearly or at least almost over +10 celsius, walks outside are the best way to relax and have some me time. When its dry, I've even actually sat down beside the sea and enjoyed the pretty views for some time.


Evenings
When it gets dark earlier and rains more often you basically have a very good reason to stay inside under the blanket, have those candles lit and read a book, watch a film or two and get totally hooked on different Youtube channels. Wearing some woolly socks, drinking a lovely hot drink and possibly doing a bit of pampering as well... I'm feeling all cosy already! It's like after a very energetic spring and summer, autumn comes just in time for the need of relaxation. <3

What are your fave things about autumn?
How do you get cosy?

  1. I love autumn, it's got to be my favourite season by far! Scarves and candles are an absolute must! I love early morning runs when it's cold but sunny and I am totally addicted to PSLs but they're not so good for the diet haha!

  2. I really love how when it's just getting cold for autumn, we start focusing on everything warm. Colours, drinks, candles, and snuggly materials. All the best things!

  8. Reading this just made me feel all cozy and warm :) Thanks so much for sharing yet another super inspiring post, sweetie. I was literally nodding along to every point to mentioned, honey. Just like you, I feel like my scarf obsession is a serious deal lol. My scarf collection needs a closet on its own to be hung and displayed properly! And I won't stop because there are just so many beautiful options out there haha!! :D
    Love all the dark autumnal lippies! It's always so exciting to pull them out once the cold weather rolls in ;) Candles and cozy evenings - that's another massive favourite thing of mine (well, ours) to do :) It's the best just to relax together with your other half and enjoy some chill and quality time together <3 There is one thing I feel like I am missing out on and that's nature. I want to be more outdoorsy and active outside but I just really have zero time. I know it's an excuse at the end of the day. Your post and your super fun snaps are always motivating me to move and get out more, darling. Many many thanks for being so lovely and awesome!! Couldn't be more grateful to have made such an amazing bestie even though we live miles and miles apart. You and Kay are my ride-or-die buddies for life <3
    Hope you have a fab weekend, sweetie!! Love ya to pieces!

  9. I couldn't agree more with everything you just said, Emma. I love dark toned lipsticks, how leaves turn colorful, candles, cozy evenings in and scarves. Also, Halloween makes autumn so much better for me, haha :)

  10. Your lovely post got me in such an autumn mood babe, thank you so much for sharing! <3 I always look forward to autumn, something about it is just so cosy and relaxing. :) I actually don't mind it getting a little colder either, because I get to wear comfortable jumpers, which are actually my favourite thing to wear, ever! :) x x x And I'm the same as you with candles - I don't tend to burn any during spring or summer months, but I just love using them in autumn. I've been eyeing up some pumpkin spice candles, and I always get very excited whenever Yankee Candle bring out their autumn season collections! :D <3 Thank you for sharing this amazing post hun, and also, thank you for the lovely comment on my post about veganism, it really put a smile on my face - thank you for being such a fab inspiration, always! Hope you're having a fab weekend so far. <3 <3 Sending lots of love your way, my darling. x x
