Hello October, and hello Autumn. What does Autumn mean to you? To us, it means the weather beginning to change, the leaves turning and the nights starting to draw in. For bigger jumpers and more candles, for the start of festive hot drinks and warming sweet treats like apple crumble. We love welcoming the colder seasons and all that comes with it. So this week on the blog, we thought we'd dedicate a post to Autumn and the the many joys of it.
One of the best things about Autumn is a walk through the orangey leaves with a chill in the air. There's something so refreshing about it after a summer of warm weather (not that we had much this year!). If you need some help staying warm as the weather starts to turn though, then we might be able to inspire you. The new Powder autumn/winter collection has arrived and is making us feel oh-so ready for cosy season. With gorgeously luxurious quality materials and beautiful design, the gloves, wrist warmers, hats and socks are so perfect for the new season. They also make for fabulous gifts too, as they come with their own little gift bag for free. So for anyone getting onto their Christmas shopping, these could be a fab option. Be sure to check out the full Powder collection here!
If a new pair of gloves isn't quite enough to keep you warm as the temperature continues to drop, then a hot drink in hand certainly helps too. We're a little bit in love with the new Emma Bridgewater x Chilly's coffee cup design Dogs in the Woods, the colours just scream autumn! And that's all there really is to it. Just imagine taking it on a crisp, cold walk amongst the orangey leaves, perhaps with pup in tail. Heaven.
It wouldn't be an autumn blog post without the mention of candles, would it? This really is the season for candles. Not only do they add a welcoming warmth to your home, but the scents available at this time of year are just fantastic. Our particular favourites for autumn have to be The Country Candle Company's cinnamon and apple scent, or the vanilla spiced orange scent. They're warm and spicey enough to bring a snuggly feel to your home without being overpowering, just glorious. Alternatively, to get into the spirit of Halloween, we've got the fabulous pumpkin shaped candle from Talking Tables this year. It's unscented, but it's so cute and a great way to decorate for spooky season in a stylish way.
Now then, last but certainly not least and on the topic of pumpkins, let's talk Halloween. Whilst Autumn is not solely about Halloween, it has definitely become a big part of it. Of course we will dedicate an entire blog post to one of our favourite times of the year, but we couldn't resist giving it a mention here also. So, when you're ready to get into the spooky season spirit (pardon the pun), we've got you covered. With Emma Bridgewater covering your homeware for it, and Jellycat and Talking Tables sorting you out with the fun stuff, we're sure you'll be having a happy Halloween.
