The year's last, loveliest smile.

I saw this post on Abby's blog a few weeks ago (originally from Maisy Meow) and I thought it would be a good post for me to do to express my love for all things autumn. Check out Abby's reasons to look forward to autumn and winter here! As usual, the seasons have merged from summer into autumn very rapidly and I'm definitely looking forward to all of these things in the near future:

1. My favourite kind of weather, crisply cold but really bright and sunny.
2. Jumpers, scarves and the general layering of clothes.

3. New season clothes shopping. The search for the perfect winter coat has begun.
4. Cosy weekend nights spent in front of the telly watching X Factor.
5. Autumn leaves. They make the city look so pretty.
6. Soup, lots of soup. I've already made Moroccan chickpea and spinach soup last night and I'm planning to make sweet potato later this week.
7. Wearing boots, with thick fluffy socks purchased in mass from Primark.
8. Drinking lots of cups of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, hot juice...just any hot beverage really.
9. Candles. I might be tempted to buy one of the nice winter-y smelling Yankee candles that Abby mentioned in her post after payday.
10. It's that time of year when, if I'm at home in The Borders, my mum will have the coal fire in the living room roaring every night.
11. Puddings, especially homemade apple crumble with custard.
12. The autumn sunsets. The colours always seem so much nicer at this time of year, especially that orange hue that lingers after a sunny day. I'm a sucker for a pretty sunset.
13. Being able to put your pyjamas on as soon as you get in, regardless of if it's only's almost dark outside!
14. Curling up in bed with Netflix and a hot water bottle. 
15. The shops starting to get all their things in for...CHRISTMAS!
