We are now entering October and the leaves are getting more colourful, the air is getting colder and I am getting the jumpers out of the wardrobe.
Don’t get me wrong I do love summer but nothing can compare to the cosy nights where I can wrap up in a blanket with a hot chocolate and look around to a cute decorated room. Let’s be honest the only times of year you can decorate are for autumn/Halloween or Christmas. I did write a little haul on some things I have picked up this year, which you can check out here.
But let’s get into why I love autumn…
- The fashion
I love tights and dark colours and wearing coats, so this season is literally for me. Pretty much my wardrobe has always consisted of dark reds, blacks, greys and browns. I just love them colours, and yes I have experimented a bit more with yellows in the past few years which I love. I also LOVE wearing boots, they literally just go with anything. Plus jumpers are just so comfy and honestly I am all for comfort! If anyone wants me to do an updated Autumn/Fall outfit inspo then let me know in the comments!
2. The candles/bath bombs
Honestly I just love the bath bombs in lush during this period of time. They all look amazing, smell amazing and I can’t explain my love for them anymore. Also the candles around this time of year are pretty great, I am more for the Christmas smells more than pumpkin (as I mentioned in my fall haul), but still the candles are much better this time of year. If anyone has any recommendations of either let me know in the comments!
I know this probably sounds a bit weird but the air is just so much better when it starts getting colder. This means breathing whilst running is much better and my training is better. However, don’t get me wrong I don’t like to run in the rain as much haha, but sometimes it’s gotta be done. Plus the autumn views are just so lovely when running, so what more could I want?
The TV just starts getting better around this time of year and I love that. Of course Strictly Come Dancing has started again so that is another reason to LOVE autumn haha. But also Christmas films begin to play and I am all for it. Don’t judge me for getting into the spirit early.
What are you guys looking forward to?
Lastly, I am setting myself some goals for the rest of the year…
*Firstly, to keep up with my training (as in running and going to the gym). I completed my second half-marathon (if you want to read about that here ya go), and really want to continue to improve my runs. Therefore, I am setting myself the goal of running at least 10 miles a week. If I can run more then great but if I can just run 10 miles that will be great too. Of course I am giving myself a break for most of this week after that half-marathon my body does need it.
*Secondly, I have been applying for new jobs and I am hoping I find one. So please keep your fingers crossed for me. That is something that I would definitely like to have by the end of this year. Ideally the end of this month.
*Thirdly, I want to invest more time into my blog and I am doing some themed posts for fall/Halloween and Christmas so that should be exciting as well as keeping it real posts. Also I want to develop my blog and hopefully re-design my blog. Just might take me some time.
Do you guys have any goals for the rest of the year?
