Life Lately | Back To Blogging & My Love Of Autumn






For those of you that read my blog regularly or follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I have not been online for about two months. I have had some very personal things to deal with in my life over the past eight weeks, and a lot of a adjusting to do. Whilst I’m not going to go into any detail right now, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of my friends and family who have been a major support system for me lately. 

So, after a two-month break I am excited to be back to doing something that I absolutely love; writing, creating and publishing blog posts. I have really missed everything that coincides with blogging; the brainstorming, the writing, the photography, the editing, uploading content to Instagram etc. etc. It has honestly felt like I have had a huge hole in my life over the past couple of months, and I am really pumped to get back into the swing of things.


I’m feeling doubly pumped because it is officially autumn now – my favourite time of the year! I know it seems like a cliché and not very inventive, but there really is something about this season that makes me feel so happy. 

THE FASHION


Autumnal fashion is one of the main selling points for me. I absolutely love styling autumn inspired fashion pieces. I find that there is a pretty yet masculine casualness to autumnal outfits, which is the perfect combination for my aesthetic. Pairing over the knee boots with a short fitted skirt, worn with an oversized, tucked in jumper and an oversized scarf, complete with messy hair and pretty autumnal makeup equals my ideal outfit. 

THE COLOURS 


It is most likely because I have pale skin and super dark hair and eyes, but I think that the autumnal colour palette really suits me. I love maroon, burnt oranges, chocolate browns and mustard yellows. I think it all just feels so warm and cosy, and I find it very flattering. It looks so pretty when these colours are not only in my wardrobe, but also in my makeup stash. So, it is around this time of year that I like to bring out all of my red/orange-toned eye shadows and deep pinky-red lip products. I just find it so pretty and seasonally appropriate. 

THE OUTDOORS


The weather also plays a huge part in my love for the season of autumn. I love blustery walks to work, the chilly/crisp mornings followed by glorious sunshine at lunch and the darker evenings that make everything feel so cosy… I also like the idea that you know where you stand a bit more. In the UK the summer/spring weather can be quite unpredictable, in autumn I feel like I can be a little more prepared and confidently walk out of the house in a jumper, jeans and some ankle boots, accompanied with a scarf and an umbrella and know that I have all bases covered. 

HALLOWEEN & BONFIRE NIGHT


Autumn also marks Halloween and Bonfire Night, two of my favourite events of the year. Although Halloween can sometimes feel a bit stressful on the build up (hello scrolling through Pinterest every night for five weeks trying to find inspiration for the perfect outfit) it is always fun on the night. I love getting ready and dressing up, or even if I don’t have a party to go to, staying in, getting a load of Halloween treats and having a movie marathon. It’s probably something to do with my love of Harry Potter, but I just find Halloween so magical and exciting!

Bonfire Night is another favourite. I love the food, fireworks, getting all dressed up in warm clothing and drinking cider around the fire. My parents usually host a huge Bonfire Party at their house, so there is probably some nostalgia thrown in there, but I always have such a good time. 



I am really looking forward to the weeks ahead, and I have some new content planned that I am excited to get published. Thank you so much again to everyone that reads and supports my blog or follows me on social media, it really does mean a lot to know that you’re still here!
