Autumn in London

As you can see I’ve partially embraced Autumn by wearing my thickest jumper on bare legs.  There is always mix of emotions at this time of year. Some of us want to cling onto every drop of Summer but some of us are desperate to be able to order a pumpkin spice latte while wearing our snuggly jumpers. I guess I’m somewhere in between. Summer is my favourite time of the year, but here in London the summer is short and usually not as hot, although I’m like a lizard, and only feel hot when it’s 35 degrees or more, so I appreciate every second of it. Long days and warmth just make me happy and I’m never ready for grey and cold days but the one thing I like about Autumn is that Hygge feeling. I use to hate Autumn but now actually I don’t really mind it and while thinking about it I came up with some reasons why you all should love Autumn.

 

  • New TV series. I’m a bit of a TV series addict, and during summer when I have days off with nothing to do I miss having some shows to binge watch. At the moment I’m so happy that my favourite shows are back: How to get away with murder, Designated Survivor and Scandal with some new great ones: Sinner and Absentia
  • Chai latte. Or Pumpkin Spice latte. Or any other latte that will give you that feeling of happiness.
  • Candles. My flat is full of candles but I never light them during the summer. I’m so happy that now I can light up all the candles I bought during the summer.
  • Fairy lights. I wanted to keep my fairy lights on the wall during the Summer but I ended up putting them away and was too lazy to put them back up. Well this weekend they are finally back!
  • Bonfire night. After this time, talk about Christmas can officially start. Anytime before is just too early. I just love bundling up and walking to the nearest firework display with a cup of hot chocolate, and a marshmallow
  • Cinnamon Buns. My favourite pastry ever. I’m always on the lookout for new cinnamon bun places in London. Currently, my number one is Fabrique Bakery with Nordic Bakery as the runner-up.
  • Evenings in. When it’s dark and cold outside you won’t feel bad staying in under the blanket with a glass of wine and your loved one.
  • Markets. I know you can go to markets during the Summer, but there is something about crisp autumnal mornings that make the stroll around markets so nice
  • Big Jumpers. Finding the softest and warmest jumper to keep you cosy is the ultimate Autumn goal.
  • New Coat.
  • Parks. Most people love parks in Summer, especially in London where I get the feeling that every Londoner just moves to the park during the Summer. From boot-camps, yoga, fetes, to picnics and BBQ’s, parks are always crowded. But in Autumn it’s so much nicer to wrap up and have a quiet walk as the leaves change colour.
