Setting The Mood For Autumn

Autumn is officially in full swing I couldn't be happier. Autumn is my most favourite time of the year, there's just so many reason to love this season. It's time for crisp cool air, golden leaves, candles, knitwear and of course getting cosy with a hot chocolate. There's something rather special about the leaves changing colour and the need for layers as the nights are getting colder. Autumn also means Halloween and then Christmas ekk, it comes around so fast.
 Autumn is all about comfort and there's no better way than to have cosy nights in. This is probably my favourite thing about Autumn, snuggling up with blankets and hot chocolates. I love lighting candles and catching up on TV Series or of course The Great British Bake Off (currently obsessed). Hot chocolate is my number one everyday must have when the weather turns chilly, galaxy hot choco topped with marshmallows and cinnamon sticks is amazing!!
Autumn means it's time for me to switch up my skincare routine, I shall be doing a full blog post on my Autumn skincare saviours so keep an eye out for that. Pamper nights in with candles are my favourite thing to do, I recently picked up the Origins GinZing copper peel off mask. The GinZing mask is designed to brighten the skin and tighten pores while lifting away dead skin cells to leave your skin feeling smooth and refined. This is the perfect mask for this time of the year, it leaves my skin with a lovely glow. Bath time treats are of course a must have, making time to soak in the bath tub is so relaxing and an ultimate Autumn comfort. I love using bath oils and luxury scented products to give that spa like experience, they make me feel very relaxed and I never want to get out of the tub. 
I'm a huge fan of candles all year round, I'm forever burning them all day long and night. My current favourite candle right now is The White Company Autumn scented candle. The White Company candles are amazing this smells absolutely divine, it's exactly like smelling Autumn in a little glass jar.. I'm obsessed! I have quite the collection of blankets and throws, I recently purchased three new ones and couldn't wait to add them to my bed. Blankets are an ultimate comfort, snuggling up on the sofa underneath a blanket is perfect, when it's cold outside there's nothing better than feeling cosy in some fresh pjs and fluffy socks. Fairy Lights complete the whole cosy feeling, there's something about them that bring a relaxing calm feel to any room.
I don't tend to decorate my room for Autumn but this year I just added a few pine cones for decor along with some new cushions and throws to make it extra cosy. I really hope you've enjoyed reading this post, be sure to let me know what your Autumn comforts are in the comments below. Keep your eyes out for lot's of Autumn related posts.
