Friday favourites: Autumn

I'm really sorry this is a day late, it completely slipped my mind!
Hello! I've not done one of these in a while, so because we're getting into autumn and it's a new month I thought I'd start it up again.
I am so so so excited for autumn. It is absolutely my favourite time of year; it's still not bitter enough to be winter, but its chilly enough for big cardigans and woolly tights- both of which I'm wearing right now. All the trees look magical, and crunchy leaves are one of the best best things, especially when you find some that aren't a bit soggy from British rain. Plus, autumn is the perfect excuse for a warm milk or hot chocolate (apparently it's not acceptable to have these at four o'clock in the afternoon during English summer).

 1- Soft, woolly blankets to snuggle into
 2- Building super cozy forts with said blankets
 3- Super crunchy bright leaves that aren't damp
 4- But even when it rains you don't mind so much, because it's a great excuse to curl up on the sofa
 5- Pies that come in every shape and size. You can see how to make this one here
 6- Hot chocolates bigger than your face
 7- Bonfire night and fireworks and, um, bonfires
 8- Getting all dressed up with no where to go, also known as halloween (or, you know, every other day of my life)
9 & 10- The bestest chunky knits and cute outfits

This is what I'm looking forward to most about autumn. I'm less looking forward to being in my last year at school, but life goes on and I'm sure it'll be okay in the end. I just need to organise myself, and not burrow down with blankets and hot chocolate and books until all my work is out of the way. As much as I would like to.

Love, Shay. xo
