Before I go any further I’d like to send a massive thanks and virtual hugs to the wonderful girls: Beth, Laura, Kristen, Aqy and Joy for taking their time to share thoughts and pictures- it wouldn’t be possible to create this post without you ❤️
Although the weather outside is truly lovely and much more expected in July than September, everything reminds us that the new season is just around the corner- high street brands happily display their back-to-school collections, Starbucks persuades us that the end of August is the best time to introduce pumpkin spice latte, glossy magazines present purple, cherry and brown lipsticks spotted on the catwalks… autumn is nearly there!
And although I’m sure none of us wants summer to end, especially bloggers have quite a few reasons to dislike autumn: the days are rainy and windy so it’s hardly possible to take a good picture, it’s permanently dark so everyone’s just depressed and demotivated and after a happy summer flow of inflatable flamingos and young coconut drinks there’s nothing interesting to post about before the Christmas madness. Bloggers must obviously hate autumn, right? Not quite!
I personally think it’s a wonderful season and guess what- I’m not the only one! Today I and a few of my favourite blogging girls would like to tell you why we absolutely love autumn. Here we go!
Bethany, Adventure & Anxiety
I love autumn because the changing of the seasons reminds me that sometimes letting go of the past is a positive. Hot lazy days are replaced by crisp, cool evenings surrounded by the most beautiful colours you can imagine. There’s an inherent cosiness in autumn, with thick knitted jumpers, pumpkin flavoured drinks and long bubble baths all becoming daily routines. Autumn to me means crackling log fires, hot apple cider and two of the best holidays within a week – Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night. I can’t wait to put on some cosy clothes and jump into piles of golden leaves.

My favourite season by far is Autumn! I love earth colours and Autumn just suits my dress sense the most. Creating dark smoky looks with a bold or nude lips gets me so excited. Also being able to snuggle indoor with a good movie, tons of junk and a steamy hot chocolate with marshmallows! What else could I ask for?
Kristen, Suburban Renovation
My summers are always exciting and jam packed with adventures, but there is nothing like feeling a cool fall breeze in early September and knowing that it’s time to slow it all down. Fall reminds me of back-to-school which still gives me those butterflies in my stomach. I love everything about fall, including the gorgeous fall foliage, apple and pumpkin picking, cider doughnuts and of course, fall fashion! I can’t wait to bring all of my boots, sweaters and blanket scarves out of storage!
Aqy, Skinny Decxf Latte
I love autumn because it means that Halloween is just around the corner! I love how the weather starts to get colder in autumn, and that I get to wear layered clothing and also rock a dark coloured lip daily!
Joy, My Traveling Joys
Autumn is one of my favorite seasons to photograph. The leaves seem to magically turn from green to shades of colorful crimson, burnt orange and golden yellow. I love capturing all those different shades in my photos and sharing them with my blog readers. As the temperature drops in autumn, I also enjoy eating hearty, warm dishes like beef goulash, chicken soup with homemade noodles and cinnamon-laden apple desserts. What’s not to love?
Me, Into The City
I love autumn because there’s always so much of a creative spirit in the air- after lazy summer we’re all back on truck, motivating and inspiring one another- magazines are suddenly twice as thick and there are tonnes of different cultural events all over the show. Autumn colours are reflected in clothing and makeup and I still hope this year I’ll finally find a perfect dark cherry lipstick and just another oversized grey jumper. Autumn to me also means apple crumble, pumpkin everything and watching MTV Unplugged shows (with AIC’s being my all time favourite).
I hope by now you realise what a wonderful season autumn is and why we love it so much. Don’t forget to check out all the blogs- they are amazing!
