For me, Autumn is all about getting cosy and hunkering down for the colder months of the year.
It's all about snuggling under blankets with a good book and a big mug of tea, or hot chocolate or even a pumpkin spiced latte with lots of cream.
This Autumn I've been settling down with Jenny Colgan's The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris and I'm in love, and have been since page 1. Don't you just love books like that, you just can't put them down.
It's about hot candlelit bubble baths and trying out the latest seasonal LUSH products.
In fact it's all about candlelight and fairy lights all the time, not just at bath time. Lighting plays a huge part on setting the scene and making a home feel warm and cosy.
And creating little Autumn displays, bringing the outdoors in.
These are definitely the reasons why I love Autumn so much.
