This post is a little different from those that I normally do. The lovely Savanna Rae tagged me in this, and it’s my first blogger tag so I just couldn’t resist joining in on the fun! I know it’s November and thoughts are suddenly turning towards winter – I’ve even started buying Christmas presents – but technically it’s still autumn. A colder, more dreary month of autumn, but autumn none-the-less! So without further ado, here are my autumnal thoughts…
1. WHAT SIGNIFIES AUTUMN TO YOU?
The change in the air. I love when it turns crisp and cold, and the way the world smells is just different. I also love when I’m back home in Hampshire and the leaves on the trees are all turning beautiful shades of gold and amber.
2.WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SPEND A RAINY DAY?
Inside, snuggled up with Percy Pug with a hot cup of tea. After the gym of course!
3.WHAT IS YOUR MOST FOND AUTUMN MEMORY?
It’s got to be going conker collecting. My parents always used to take us out hunting for them on stunning countryside walks. We would come home laden with conkers, ready to soak them in vinegar and do battle!
4.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN SCENT?
I really gravitate to fresh yet cosy scents in the autumn – the candle in my living room right now is a rich floral though, and it’s just gorgeous.
5.WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR THIS AUTUMN?
Crisp mornings, long dog walks and finally getting my personal trainer qualification.
6.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN SONG?
Is this a thing? I’m afraid I don’t have one!
7.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN MOVIE?
Again, is this a thing? For a cosy afternoon in nothing beats a Disney in my humble opinion.
8.WHAT TV SHOWS ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS AUTUMN?
I binge watched Stranger Things 2 in literally two days. I don’t know if I’m proud or embarrassed. It was my first week of unemployment ok?
9.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN COLOUR?
It’s got to be the golds and ambers of the falling leaves.
10.WHAT IS YOUR MOST LOVED OUTDOOR AUTUMN ACTIVITY?
Definitely a good dog walk – Percy just loves this season too, he can’t get enough of jumping into the piles of leaves!
11.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN FASHION TREND?
Chunky knitwear and a good coat. This is when my Burberry trench and poncho both get to come out to play and I love them.
12. IF YOU COULD HAVE A FAMILIAR/ SPIRIT ANIMAL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I’d like to say some kind of big cat. Maybe a leopard – they’re one of the smallest of the big cat family but still a force to be reckoned with. They’re super strong and also quite solitary…sounds about right!
13.NAME ONE PLACE YOU WISH YOU COULD VISIT DURING AUTUMN?
I adore autumn in the British countryside, but I’d love to go to somewhere like Virginia to see an American countryside autumn. I imagine it’s beautiful.
14.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PHOTO YOU TOOK LAST AUTUMN?
It’s not very autumnal because it’s on the beach in Malta, but I just think I look so happy and relaxed. My body wasn’t where I wanted it to be (it still isn’t!) but I was actually feeling fairly comfortable in my skin and that shows through I think.
15.WHAT ARE YOU BEING THIS HALLOWEEN?
Well this has been and gone, but I dressed up as Misty from Pokémon, Ed went as Ash and Percy went as Pikachu. It was awesome.
Thanks again to Savanna for nominating me for this tag! What are your favourite parts of autumn? Would love to hear some of your answers in the comments.
