Summer is without any question my favourite time of the year but that does not mean that I do not love autumn or winter any less. Actually, I am quite looking forward for the upcoming seasons for many different reasons and I thought it would be fun to share them with you.
Summer is all about sun, sea, light clothes, bare face and nice holidays but there are things that I truly miss that aren’t really summer appropriate and that is why I am always looking forward for autumn/winter. This year isn’t any different and here is why:
I love finishing a long day with a nice and relaxing bubble bath but there is no way we can do this during warmer months. Yet, autumn/winter are the best seasons for this. I love throwing a nice bath bomb in there, have a lot of bubbles and sit there for I don’t know how long reading a book or just scrolling down my Instagram or Twitter while I have a face mask doing it’s magic. I feel much more relaxed after all of this.
Rainy days & TV Shows
Sometimes, staying at home can be quite boring specially if it is a beautiful day outside. On the other hand, if it is pouring rain, it feels great to just sit on the sofa all day long with a fluffy blanket and a nice hot drink while watching your favourite TV Show or a nice film. It makes everything better!
Hot Chocolate & Marshmallows
If you didn’t know by now, my favourite hot drink is hot chocolate. I never drink tea and only drink coffee on work days or if I am still too sleepy to do anything but hot chocolate is something I can have any day, at any time apart from when its 40ºC outside and not even an ice cream will cool you down.
And whilst I am trying to diet and not eat rubbish, I can’t resist a nice cup of hot chocolate with a bit of cream and mini marshmallows on top. Irresistible.
Layering clothes, scarves, boots, cozy socks.. what else? In my opinion, during these two seasons is when you can play around with clothes more. Layering is one of my favourite things. It makes it all so much more interesting and you feel so warm and comfortable too! A/W fashion is one of my favourites.
Makeup & Dark Lips
One other thing that changes with seasons is makeup. During summer, a bronzed eye with a glowing skin and nude or glossy lip is what most of us want.
But autumn and winter scream dark burgundy lips, matte skin and neutral makeup- this is all I am about during these seasons and I can wait to bring my dark lipstick back, ’cause I truly missed it!
And these are only a few things that make me look forward for A/W this year – and every year. Not forgetting about my boyfriend, moms and my birthday. Followed by Christmas – Manchester Christmas Market is something I am also excited for -, New Years and my brothers birthday. So many things to look forward to!
What are you most looking forward for this A/W ’16?
