Trying to Love Autumn

Now don't get me wrong, I don't hate autumn. I mean I love it a hell of a lot more than winter but my body was just not made for this weather. I am definitely a sun worshipper. I need the heat, my body needs it, We were made for each other.

With the weather suddenly turning colder my body has gone crazy and my joints are constantly freaking out. I'm shuffling around like a 90 year old more than ususal and in so much more pain now than I was in the summer. I mean I'm not pain free and cured in the heat but I am 10x worse in the cold and my Raynaud's flares up and my hands & feet are beyond cold & painful.

Anyway that' not the point of this post. I decided to write a post about the good things about autumn to look on the bright side and distract myself from the bad.

At least the sea is still awesome even if its too cold to swim in.

1. I can drink hot drinks without my body over heating. I can drink them all the time if I want to (I do) and GINGER BREAD LATTES (Sorry but its just so exciting)

2. I can wear my onesies, fluffy socks or giant hoodies and be all cosy.

3. I can hibernate in my billions of blankets and pillows and be part of a beautiful blanket burrito.

4. Darker nail varnish and lipstick. I can wear black nail varnish all the time and berry lipsticks and I am so in love with my new lipstick I am going to wear it all the time & you cant stop me.

5. Darker evenings means more time snuggled up with a hot chocolate and my very large DVD collection

6. HALLOWEEN - Need I say more. Gonna dress up with my flatmates and look awesome and spend the rest of october watching hocus pocus, casper, and horror films.

7. It is quite pretty with all the leaves turning orange and falling off the trees - We'll just skip past how slippy they can be and how much I nearly fall and die. And the sea is still a magical place to be. It may even be more awesome in the cold minus the fact its too cold to swim.

8. Food is pretty awesome when it gets cold. Everything is so filling and usually comes with gravy and who doesn't love gravy?

9. Beanie hats. This is definitely one of my favourite parts. I am known to be lazy with my hair (washing & brushing) and you don't have to do either of these if you can wear an awesome looking hat all the time and I have a lot of them

10. Fires and candles. We have an open fire at home and it's always so lovely to sit in front of with the candles lit. Also bonfires and toasting marshmallows.

Well that was a tad harder than expected. I just love summer but gingerbread lattes, beanies and awesome lipstick next to a bonfire kinda make up for it.

What are your favourite things about Autumn please let me know to try and make me more excited?
Are you a summer or winter kind a person?
