21 Reasons Why I Love Autumn

20150908-124709.jpgAutumn is just around the corner, and for many people this means the end of sunny, summer days with treks to the beach, barbecues, and roasting marshmallows around a fire pit during a family camping trip. For me, this means no longer having to apply SPF60 sunscreen every time I want to leave the house so my paper white skin doesn’t burn to a crisp. In short, I welcome autumn each year with open arms. But it’s not just the lack of sunscreen that makes this my favourite season. There are so many amazing things about autumn that I could just go on and on about, so I thought I would set myself a limit and share with you 21 reasons why I love autumn, in no particular order:

  1. Breaking out the scarf collection!!!
  2. There’s nothing like curling up in front of the fire with a good book.
  3. All the leaves start changing to such beautiful colours and being raked into piles on people’s lawns and and cascading through the air, etc. I love everything to do with autumn leaves.
  4. Warm pancake breakfasts with fresh maple syrup. . . Yum.
  5. Staying in bed on weekends and catching up on some sleep without the sun obnoxiously peering in the window at you at 7am.
  6. Berry toned lips and nails make their annual comeback into everyone’s beauty regime.
  7. School starts back up, which means a fresh batch of sticky notes for studying.
  8. Rain boots become fashionable again (and where I live, totally necessary; 100% function over fashion when it comes to 10cm of rain every day for weeks).
  9. Watching movies in pyjamas with a cup of hot chocolate (and mini marshmallows, of course).
  10. Mittens. Mittens. Mittens. In case you haven’t guessed, I really like mittens.
  11. Berets and toques and fedoras, oh my!!!
  12. No more worrying about sweating off your makeup in the summer heat.
  13. Over 800 pages of the September issue of Vogue to pore over.
  14. No need for blush with the slight pinkish hue on cheeks from the cold.
  15. Pumpkin-spiced everything makes its appearance in stores and Starbucks everywhere; new additions always coming soon!!!
  16. As the weather turns to daily rain, that means more time inside bookstores looking for the next good read . . . or two.
  17. Wearing tights under dresses to stay chic and warm.
  18. Candles, candles, and more candles!!!
  19. Autumn nights are perfect for having a bubble bath.
  20. Tons of anticipated books from top authors are published in autumn.
  21. The peppermint mocha returns to Starbucks.

So let’s start saying our farewells to summer because autumn can’t come soon enough!!!
