4 Good Things this Autumn
Did somebody say November? Where did time go but also, let’s get out the Christmas decorations, am I right? Even though I still like to enjoy November as Autumn mostly, it’s also a month to reflect and be still for a while before the craziness of Christmas hits us. I’m not a summer baby at all and really prefer more moderate temperatures and I also find all other seasons to be much more exciting and colourful. autumn always feels like a fresh start to me and instantly grounds me. its so cozy and really makes me fall more in love with my home. it makes me want to spend time by myself doing DIYs, decorating but also exploring my surroundings preferably with my family and boyfriend. it’s a beautiful season and actually, there’s nothing like the golden autumn sun shining through bright yellow and orange leaves. it’s magical. so let’s talk about 4 good things that happened this autumn.
1. ‘Tis the Season
I love taking part in seasonal activities and really going all out with every season and this year, I made a bucket list with everything I wanted to do. I started with apple picking which was one of the most fun afternoons I have had all year. Not only it is very therapeutic, but it also made me enjoy seasonal fruit and its also very picture worthy. always a plus when you are a blogger. I also made it to a pumpkin patch, did a haunted hayride and decorated tons of pumpkins for my home and went to a Halloween party. can it get any better? topped off with tons of autumnal wood walks, it was perfect.
2. Autumnal Fashion
is there anything better than autumnal fashion? I feel like every store comes to there truest form in autumn and if I had never ending funds, I would have to rent a whole new flat just for my clothes. I love everything this year. corduroy, knits, leopard and over knee boots as well as bold autumnal prints such as this beautiful h&m dress which is part of the morris & co collection. the print is a statement but the muted colours make it work for me and it’s so beautiful and flowy. how can you not love dressing up in autumn?
3. Time for Family
October is a month for family time as it’s my mums birthday on the 1st and my granddads birthday on the 31st. it’s basically a month of family celebrations. as a family we not only celebrate with a lovely dinner or afternoon tea, we like spending a whole day together in order to create memories which ultimately is the most valuable thing. for my mums birthday, we went to a garden to find some inspiration for the new family home and for my granddads birthday, my sister and I invited him to a day at a museum and went to one of the berlins most famous currywurst stands and it was beautiful. my family is probably one of the things I’m beyond grateful for.
4. Being cozy at Home
as soon as autumn hits, I get out my blankets, pillows, and candles. its just the best and spending an evening by myself with a big cup of tea or hot chocolate is just what I need. I feel way more comfortable at home as soon as its getting colder. maybe its because my flat isn’t boiling hot anymore or maybe its because there’s something so calm about this season. I didn’t do any major changes to my flat but I decorated it according to the season and I plan to do the same this Christmas. I can’t wait.
