When the temperatures drop and the days get shorter, it’s time to snuggle up with some of my favourites:
Scented Candles! Oh I do love the flickering light and a flavourful scent in my nose. Pumpkin scents in particular are a favourable fragrant for the autumn. As I work with candles, my standard is quite high and the average IKEA candle doesn’t do the job for me. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a good quality candle. TK Maxx often offer high end candles for the fraction of the original price. A good place to start looking. My favourite candle dealer in Germany is of course American Heritage. 🙂 They offer a huge variety of Kringle and Country Candles.
Oversized Jumpers! There is nothing better than snuggling up in a comfy sweater. No matter how cold it is, your jumper nestles around you like a comfy blanket. The material is key when it comes to a cosy pullover and again, I usually opt for better quality than quantity. Outlet malls and end of season sales are a great find for oversized jumper, as you don’t have to worry too much about sizing (it’s OVERSIZED anyway) and the price tag seems a bit friendlier as well. Recently I bought a French Connection jumper in the sale for about £20. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Nature Walks! The older I get, the more I realise how much I’m craving these moments in nature. For me fall is the perfect season to enjoy a long walk in the forest, breath in some crisp fresh air, admire the beautiful colouring of the leaves and keep an eye out for our woodland friends. 🌲🐿 Leaves and chestnuts also make a beautiful fall decor, so I usually come home with a bag full of collected nature treasures.
Everything Pumpkin! What is better than a steaming hot pumpkin soup or a pumpkin casserole to warm you up after a nature walk. Simple to make, easy to keep (I always freeze some extra portions) and sooo delicious. There is no pumpkin patch secure from me, much to my husband’s regret as many of my pumpkins end up as decoration in the house. I just love the look of those colourful squashes!
What makes you happy in autumn?
