I have a friend of mine who is such a summer babe. She loves the sun, the sweatiness and endless hours at the beach, while I share a few of her sentiments, I’m not in her summer camp.
Hearing me say this is so weird since almost more than half my life was spent in a warm climate (Nigeria).
The difference between the weather in Nigeria and the one here is air-conditioning. The availability and accessibility to sweet blasts of cool air when you’re indoors. Houses here in the UK are built to conserve heat and oh my, they do so well in summer. The hold and conserve all the heat inside the house, making it unbearable to live. I can’t stand it. Therefore autumn is my to-go season.
Here are 8 things I love about this time of the year.
The Weather is absolutely amazing
You don’t have that cold blast of winter air hitting your face or summer afternoons that are too hot to bear or spring’s unpredictability. The temperature is just perfect. Nighttime at home is much more bearable, afternoons are spent still drinking ice tea, and your daily walk is spent with so much ease and enjoyment.
The Fashion Is My fashion
Autumn fashion is so up my street. I love fashion and during autumn I get to layer and experiment with my clothes. I feel my style is so much better during this time, very chic and edgy. Autumn is usually a big event in the business of fashion. We have Fashion Week. I can’t wait to see how this year’s fashion week will be done amidst all that is going on in the world right now.
Snuggle Time My Little Bunny
I can snuggle up with my little one and not be afraid that it might be too hot for her. We snuggle on the sofa while watching her favourite nursery rhymes and shows.
While it might sound as a dampening to an evening out, it is absolutely perfect for a cuddle bunny like myself. I love to listen to raindrops outside my window while watching my favourite shows. It’s therapeutic and romantic. It also gives way to a cool night where you can snuggle up with your loved one.
You Save Up Money
You get to save money since you don’t have to constantly do something as it’s not always sunny.
Indoor picnics are as amazing as picnics in the park, get all your picnic goodies and set up your picnic in front of the fireplace on your living room and enjoy yourself without the worry of bees, ants and creepy crawlies.
Autumn Time is perfect for afternoon tea
As the weather is cooler, afternoon tea is just perfect with your girlfriends. Having cinnamon-spiced scones and biscuits is so yummy.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Oh so yummy and so good. I love me a wonderful pumpkin spice latte. Starbucks anyone?
