Things to embrace this Autumn

Autumn is both a wonderful and weird time of year. Gorgeous colours and wonderful food come with a transitional period for both weather and fashion and it cam confuse us a little bit! Here's what you should definitely be embracing at this time of year:

Plum nails - It can be hard to wave goodbye to the brighter hues of summer, but a chic plum or deep red nail will bring your look bang up to date. Cannot go wrong.

Blankets, blankets, and more blankets - Not only does a well chosen selection of blankets, throws and cushions make a room look inviting and stylish, but snuggling up feels soooo relaxing and will help you stretch that couple of weeks longer before the dreaded moment of turning on the central heating arrives.

Sleeping in - It's blummin' dark outside in the mornings these days and it's only gonna get worse. Many of us find it almost impossible to get up for work over this half of the year, but don't feel bad about it. Your body finds it hard to drag itself into wakefulness without natural light. Give yourself an extra half hour in bed by getting everything ready the night before and setting it out so you need less time to get ready.

Moisturiser - If you're an oily skinned girl like myself this can be a confusing time of year. My skin tends to turn more combination with the odd dry patch and the same old oily T-Zone. Keep skin in good condition by slathering on a good moisturiser, and don't forget the SPF - the sun can still find your skin through the clouds and a low winter sun can sneakily do damage.

Pumpkin spiced latte, gingerbread latte, hot chocolate... - Wherever you fall on the seasonal hot drink spectrum, it's so hard to be snobby and resist these trendy beverages and their red cups. And yes it's OK to Instagram it if you enjoy them that much!

What do you love about Autumn?
