“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”F. Scott Fitzgerald
Autumn has finally arrived! If you’re like me and you enjoy the cooler weather, the orange and fallen leaves, and the scent of pumpkin in the air, you’ve come to the right place.
Here, you will find a thoughtful guide with all the Autumn necessities required to survive and enjoy the next few months.
Essentials for the Autumn Season
Frankly, I love wearing a chic jumper. They are my most favourite items of clothing as I love the cosiness and styles of them! As it is starting to get a little chiller, now’s the time to start digging out your sweaters and strut down the streets. Another reason to like wearing jumpers is that they are easy to accessorise and never go out of fashion 🤩
It’s such a cliché, but one thing that I enjoy all year round but crave more in autumn is a hot drink ☕ It is the season of pumpkin spice lattes, mulled wine, maple bourbon hot toddy, and more. It is great to have all these delicious spices and scents in the air to really set the atmosphere.
I look forward to my go-to autumn order which is a hazelnut hot chocolate with oat or coconut-rice milk and chocolate sprinkles on top.

Add a little pop of colour to your favourite lounge seat and keep your body warm during the colder evenings with a stylish blanket. According to Sleep Consultant Alanna McGinn on her appearance at CTV’s Your Morning (2019), blankets help balance our nightly core body temperatures. It also increases serotonin and melatonin levels in our brains which enables us to relax and drift off to sleep.
There are many different blankets to choose from such as weighted, quilts, sherpa (LOVE! 💗), bamboo, and more.
