5 Things I Love About Autumn



Autumn is here and it is my favourite season as you should all know by now (because I don’t shut up about my love for Autumn, hehehe). I love the gradual transition from summer to winter, and I enjoy the transition weather a lot.

There are so many things about this season that I love but if I have to narrow my top 5 things I love about Autumn, here is how I would list them –

Chilled Evenings

I love how chilled out everywhere is during Autumn. After the hustle and bustle of summer with barbecues, picnics, holidays and people just all over the place, it is a breath of fresh air to just sit back and enjoy relaxing/chilled out evenings with my Sky Tv. The chilled evenings also make room for some me time with my personal grooming assistants – I like to have many bubble baths with my Yankee Candles burning in the background. I like to enjoy a massage with my massaging gadget, I like to relax and enjoy a manicure and pedicure with my mani/pedi gift set, and I like to shave my legs with my new epilator.

I have my evenings planned out this season and I plan to make the most of them.


Colour Change in Leaves

The colour change in leaves is so beautiful, I love it so much. The vibrant ambers, reds and yellows of Autumn is the best sight ever!


Chilly Weather

After the heat wave we experienced this summer, the chilly weather is needed. I like the fact that it is not too warm or too cold in Autumn, it is just perfect. The chilly weather is one of the best things in Autumn.

Autumn Fashion

I love Autumn Fashion as you all know already. The transition to layering style is so cool. I like the fact that I can throw on and off layers when needed.


The Darkness

It is getting dark already and I am not usually a fan of the darkness but as soon as I became a mother, I began to cherished the shorter days and longer nights because it is a lot easier to get the kids in bed at night, and get them to wake in the morning at a good time. Unlike in summer when it is still very bright at bedtime (7pm), my kids sometimes find it very difficult to understand that it is actually bed time, and then the sun comes out so early, they think it is their wake up time or what they call “morning time”. Good not to have to deal with that during Autumn/Winter.

5 Ways To Style Your Boots

Lunar Booties

The autumn/winter season is here again, and that means we got our coats, jumpers, scarves, snoods, sweaters and boots out ready to get our layering groove on. This is such a fun season for the fashionistas, as well as for the ‘ordinary people’ like us. I look forward to this season because I find the layering trend very stylish and comfortable. The colours of the season are some of my favourites as well, so I am loving the pieces and accessories in stores at the moment. It did take me a while to get a hang of it, but once I understood how it worked, I now enjoy dressing up during the cold months.

I love my Boots especially, I have been building my collection, and I have quite a few now; the one above, Suri Long Boot is a new addition from Lunar shoes. I love the suede look, and the small heel makes it very practical. You will be seeing more of this beauty in an outfit post, so keep your eyes peeled.

I find Boots very versatile, they make dresses and skirts wearable during the cold months, and they add a touch of glam to jeans or leggings. Here are 5 tips for you to remember when next you want to rock a pair of boots:

  • Wear short skirts or dresses with a stiletto thigh high boots, or flat heel boots with a mini. This looks are more covered, and remember your tights!


  • When rocking fuller skirts, make sure the hem of your skirt, falls just over the top of the boots. It looks more pulled together.


  • If you do not like to dress up too warm, pair your tall boots with lighter pieces – skirts and dresses. The boots would keep you warm, and you get some wear out of your lighter pieces during the cold season.


  • Pair your tall dark boots with the same colour for your jeans or leggings. So if you are wearing a black pair of boots, pair it with a black pair of jeans or leggings. This look makes your legs appear even longer.


  • Wear ankle booties with trousers for a more formal look. They slip under the pants quite easily, and appear more formal.
