Things I Love About This Time Of Year

This time of year is my bloomin' favourite. It's acceptable to drink Hot Chocolate morning, noon & night (yup, nothing is more satisfying than a big mug of hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows) and everything is just so snug and cosy! In an ode to my favourite time of year, I thought I'd do a little roundup of all the things I love...

Darker Evenings

I must admit, I'm definitely not as much a fan of the darker mornings that come in hand with the darker evenings, it makes it 10x harder for myself and my boyfriend to drag ourselves out of bed for work on a weekday (especially when it looks like the middle of the night) but I absolutely love darker evenings. There's nothing cosier than putting on fairy lights and lighting umpteen candles whilst its dark outside. If only we had a fireplace!

The Fashion

YES. Okay, so I'm literally the worst person to dress during Summer. I'm so fussy when it comes to Summer fashion, I just feel bleurgh in everything. Plus I'm cold like 90% of the time whether its 30 degrees or not (yep, one of them) so nothing is more enjoyable than throwing on big, thick, chunky jumpers and a snuggly scarf - I could spend an absolute fortune on an A/W wardrobe. Looking at you my newly purchased Zara camel coat. Not to mention the colour scheme, black, grey, black... oh and the khaki, navy, shades of orange and burgundy/red. I feel like A/W fashion is just the one.


Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year. That's so much more exciting than Easter, right? Despite the freakishly cold weather around this time, I love nothing more than layering and getting wrapped up to go and see a Firework Display or going for an autumnal walk through the park on a lovely crisp morning with the aforementioned hot chocolate, yum!

It's almost Christmas!

The most wonderful time of the year. Like srsly. The people, the atmosphere, the mood. How can anyone not like Christmas? Scrooges are just not welcome over here, I'm the kinda gal that has Christmas tunes playing like now. I actually just popped on Darlene Love - Baby Please Come Home to get myself in the Christmas mood because... why the hell not? Oh, and I LOVE the Christmas Markets, it's one of the many things I like about living in Manchester and working in the centre, right by them!

What's your favourite thing about this time of year?
