Autumn Essentials & Favourites

I promised autumn content and here it is!

I thought with the cold weather in full swing I could finally put together my essentials list. I know these are not everyone’s cup of tea but I love seeing what everyone buys at this time of year. I love seeing candles, blankets and most importantly what pair of boots I should be buying.

Autumn is definitely my favourite time of year for blogging and also some cool photography as well. I love capturing moments on my camera like the leaves that have changed and that cliche insta pick with my feet in a pile of leaves captioned with something very sophisticated such as “AUTUMN IN HERE!!!!!” obvs followed by the various leaf emojis and a pumpkin.

First thing I had to share with you guys was these new boots which I am slightly obsessed with. I think they are so comfortable and you can get them from New Look (here)They are heeled so if that isn’t your thing I would steer clear of them. They are suede and this darker burgundy shade which I think makes them very autumnal. I also picked up a new fedora hat (similar here) which is a very dark green/emerald colour and fits like a dream. I have a love hate relationship with hats because I always worry how they look on me but I can honestly say I love this one. Finally for fashion type items I got this blanket scarf (similar here) which is basically an essential in everyone’s autumn wardrobe so I will be surprised if you do not have one yet. It is super comfy and is my favourite autumn piece so far.

Moving on to books I wanted to share one of my newer favourites which I have almost finished and I think is such a cute, cosy and autumn/winter read. Hygge is probably one of the most popular trends but I was late to the party and haven’t really bothered with the book until now. I love the idea of Hygge and if you haven’t yet got a copy you absolutely should (pick up a copy here.) To go along with the book what is more autumn than a cute mug to drink your tea/coffee/coco from. It is no secret I am obsessed with the new Zoella Range (see my review here) and this mug is one of my favourites from it as well as the lovely festive cookie candle which smells incredible. (Candle available here & Mug here) I think they make such great gifts or even a treat for yourself as well.

Also from Zoella I picked up the mini mists which I think makes such a lovely gift as well. The packaging is adorable and I love the Bake My Day scent. I absolutely adore how much work actually goes into making these products and I am really impressed with the entire beauty range I have tried so far (Mini Mists available here.)

Finally I thought I would end with some tech and art. First is the Instax Mini (here) which I have had for a few months but only really started using these past few weeks. I love capturing cute moments on this but I am still experimenting with the light because I can never get it right. For art I have to share this unicorm themed print (here) from etsy which I love. I have a full haul coming soon but I am still waiting on 2 or 3 more prints to arrive before I can share them with you.

That is it for this favourites/essential haul and hopefully you enjoyed everything I had to show you. Let me know below your autumn essentials and is it anything I mentioned?
