There’s nothing better than Fall. In all honesty it’s my favourite time of the year, the crisp leaves, the smell of rain on the air, the subtle waft of spices on the wind and best of all sitting down at night, blanket wrapped around yourself watching Halloween/Spooky films with a hot chocolate in hand. So it’s probably no surprise to anyone that some of my favourite things in life are associated with the season.
My first favourite thing about the season is walking through the park near my home. The leaves have turned golden and dropped to the ground crunching under feat, squirrels are in abundance collecting nuts for the winter or just scurrying about playing in the leaves. There’s something homely or comforting about walking through and taking it all in even if the wind is nipping at my cheeks or the rain is pouring down heavily. I’m quite lucky that to get to univesity I get to walk through this every day.
There’s something about carving a pumpkin that brings about a childhood whimsy, a sort of nostalgia of simpler times. That’s why every year I try to carve at least one, I love sitting down, tools in hand some cheesy halloween movie like Halloweentown or Twitches in the background and carving away. Either something classic like a spooky face or something unique and complex like a film reference or interesting design.
My last three favourite items I consider my comfort items for the Fall season. I adore feeling snuggly and warm which is why my go to items either for daytime or nighttime, walking about my town or walking about my house are a good pair of fluffy socks. At home I wear slippers or slipper socks and out and about I wear knee high woolen socks (depending how the weather is). I usually pair this with a dress or a jumper, and a dark vampy lip my two favourite colours in Fall being Collections Gothic Glam in Scorned and Collections Lasting Colour in Aubergine Kiss. I tend not to wear matte lip colours in the Fall because I like to be kinder to my lips so these two colours in particular are really mosturising and the colours are still bold enough that I don’t feel naked.
And lastly what’s better on a crisp Fall day than a steaming mug of something hot, in my case it’s usually a Chai Tea Latte from my local Starbucks or something similarily at warm and comforting made at home from my Teapigs set of teas. Seriously the amount of tea, coffee and hot chocolate I go through on a regular basis pales in comparison to my consumption during the Fall season, it just makes sense to me.
To me there’s nothing better than being all bundled up, with my knee high socks, vampy lip, surrounded by leaves, pumpkins, squirrels, the sweet scents of spices and enjoying a large mug of tea or coffee.
