Okay, so I don’t particularly the evenings getting dark super early and I really don’t do well with cold weather, there are still some things I absolutely love about this time of year; here’s my list of my favourite things about autumn!
1. Wearing boots
During the summer I tend to wear trainers a lot (or sliders if I’m pottering round the garden). Now that it’s getting colder, I prefer wearing boots because I can wear them without sweating loads!! I have an extensive collection of boots; including a few pairs of ankle boots and two pairs of knee high boots!! I also have a pair of mid-top Converse with fleece lining which are perfect for cold weather 🙂
2. Drinking hot chocolate
The colder evenings are perfect for snuggling on the sofa with a big steaming mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Not only does it feel super cosy, but it also warms up my hands 🙂 We love the Asda instant hot chocolate and after making it with water, we add a little bit of milk to make it feel creamy!
Talking of snuggling, during the summer months, snuggling is a no go! It’s hot, it’s sticky and sweaty and it’s just all kinds of unpleasant! Now the weather is colder, snuggling is much nicer, whether it’s in bed or under a blanket on the sofa watching films!
Although we don’t actually celebrate Halloween in our house, and we’ve never had trick or treaters turn up at our door, I absolutely love the spooky season (goth for life). I love the decorations in the shops, the “spooky” treats and all the horror films on TV! This is one of the charity shops in Brighton, they always go all out for their Halloween window displays!!
5. Watching fireworks
We have decking at the front of our house and amazing surrounding views of the Sussex Downs. There are loads of firework displays around Bonfire night so we often sit outside and watch them all for free!
6. Wearing jumpers
I have so many cute jumpers and I hate having to pack them away in summer. Now it’s autumn, I can start wearing them again 😀 I absolutely love this pumpkin jumper from Fae Folk Co!
7. Autumnal décor
I love getting out the pumpkin ornaments during autumn, it feels so festive 🙂
Not only do I love the changing colours of the leaves, I love going on walks through big piles of crunchy leaves (as long as there’s no hidden poo underneath!!)
9. Comfort food
Autumn is all about getting the slow cooker out and making delicious hearty recipes like beef ragu, sausage casserole and lamb tagine!! Autumn is also great for making desserts like apple crumble and syrup sponge pudding 🙂
10. Mr Bear gets into bed
During summer, Mr Bear rarely comes into our bedroom and tends to sleep on the sofa in the lounge. When it starts getting colder, he loves to snuggle on the bed and often weasels his way under the duvet and sleeps in the bed with us 🙂

Thanks for sharing, I’m not a massive fan of autumn as I don’t like the cold, but the leaf colours make up for it 🙂

The fall time is my favorite season – definitely a great time of year! I have been eating lots of apples and making pumpkin goodies, and it has been fantastic so far!

It makes me so happy seeing all the orange and red leaves everywhere 🙂 xx
We live for Halloween in this house – best time of the year! That being said, I have to say I totally connected with your last point 2. Our two dogs always sleep in our bed, however, during the warmer weather they sleep at the end of the bed in front of the fan that we have there. As the weather gets cooler, they prefer to spend the time curled up actually in bed under the covers with us.
I wish we celebrated Halloween more!! Awwww, got to love those pet cuddles!! 🙂 xx
I definitely love the leaves too! Thank you for sharing what you love about autumn! Your cat is really cute too 🙂
Leaves are just so pretty at this time of year!! Awww, thank you 🙂 xx
I love Autumn too! I love your pumpkin jumper, and Mr Bear is adorable! My cat sleeps on my bed this time of year too xx
I love my pumpkin jumper too, it’s so soft and cosy!! Thanks, Mr Bear *is* adorable! Awwww, I’m glad your cat sleeps on your bed too 🙂 xx
I totally agree with you, I absolutely love Autumn too! Hot chocolates, chunky knits, the changing of the leaves, Autumnal baking, cosy nights in and home decor are all things I look forward to during this season 🍁🎃
I’m glad you love autumn too 🙂 xx
I totally agree wth this list! I love wearing boots, drinking hot chocolate, and eating comfort food too!

Oh I LOVE Autumn! I’m with you, I am so here for the snuggles!
Snuggles are the best!! xx
I’m with you on all of these! Especially the snuggling under blankets, jumpers and boots, and all the hearty warming meals and puddings! Love this time of year!
I think my favourite thing is snuggling under blankets, it’s just so cosy!!
These are very similar to my Autumn loves.
Although my cat doesn’t get in to my bed! Your cat is adorable 💕
Thank you 🙂
