Early morning mist clearing over the hills, slowly revealing the neighbouring village in the distance. Gingerbread. The opportunity to wear my favourite Gryffindor scarf again. Closing chilly fingers around a mug of hot chocolate. The promise of Halloween. Everything's better when it's a bit witchy. Hazy sunshine and crisp winds. Stargazing. Film nights: The Addams Family, Dead Poets Society, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Breakfast Club, Fantastic Beasts, Perks of being a Wallflower. Knitwear. Sparklers. Pumpkin carving. Tea lights. Warming bowls of homemade soup. New playlists featuring old favourites: Death Cab, Anthony and the Johnsons, Nirvana. Caramel apples. Exercising without melting instantly. Warm pyjamas. Endless TV dramas. Peanut butter and jam on toast. Rereading Harry Potter. Spectacular sunsets. Extra blankets. Hibernating with a good book at every opportunity. Stepping outside and the first breath of cold morning air catching the back of my throat. Going back to University. New beginnings.


  1. :( :( the weather cooling off is the best, I'm so not looking forward to the heat that's coming up here. Aaah haven't watched the Addams Family in ages, loved the movies! So excited for you re: uni <3

  2. I love autumn, it's by far my favourite season! Chilly morning air and crisp leaves are one of my favourite things x

  3. Playlists, knitwear and pumpkins. I'm all over that for Autumn haha


  4. Gingerbread and that crisp autumn air in the mornings are some of my favourite things about autumn. I don't know exactly what it is but there is definitely something intrinsically autumn about nirvana and death cab, they just seem to go perfectly with the autumn weather!

  5. Good lord, I *LOVE* Autumn and this has just made me even more excited for the season ahead. I can't wait! xx

  6. This is so beautiful! I love the image of autumn you've painted here (and three cheers for Gryffindor scarves!) xx

  7. Even though it can be tough getting into autumn because that means getting back into the hard grind of school, autumn is definitely my favourite time of year. Let the festivities begin! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  8. I saw the new Fantastic Beasts trailer yesterday! I'm really looking forward to watching the movie now :) Excited to be inspired by Autumn too :) xxx

  9. So much of this, but especially: not melting when exercising, the warm pajamas, blankets, and cold morning air. I'm ready for the cooler climate, too.
