Autumn Favourites

So the temperatures already dropped below 0, we had snow for… 15 minutes and it’s almost December, which means that maybe it’s time to say goodbye to autumn. This year I definitely don’t feel like I enjoyed autumn to the fullest, however, I have found I lot of products (and experiences) that I loved.


Is there anything more adorable than a tiny little pumpkin?! When I saw it in my local store I quickly managed to grab one and unfortunately I’ve never seen them again since. It said ‘Ready to eat’ on its label, but I just found it too cute to eat it. It’s also a great decor for photos 😉



I’ve never really been a massive fan of candles but I found myself reaching for one almost every day. First I started with the small tea candles, then I became interested in the big scented ones as well. And as I’m too sentimental, I don’t really like burning the big candles (I just love to look and smell them, yes, I’m that crazy 😀 ), but I really like going to stores such as TKmaxx and choosing among them all. And the fact that there are only limited quantities makes them even more special.


Hot chocolate:

Despite my infinite love for summer smoothies and shakes, I also love a good old cup of hot coffee with a pinch of chocolate. I now also add some warm milk, cream and chocolate sprinkles on top. That’s my beloved autumnal mug, but I must let you know that I’ve just got a Christmasy one as well 😉


Phone cases:

I had a wonderful phone case, which served me faithfully, but I had to replace it because it was all broken 🙁 I finally found one on eBay and I couldn’t decide between silver and golden, so I got both.



And if you’ve been following me for a while, you’d know about my (relatively) new camera! I love it! I definitely see an improvement in the quality of my photos, and yes, they still may be not that great, but are much more bright and crisp.


Petting an owl

And of course, keeping the best for the end 😀 So we were in Edinburgh and we I saw a few people gathering on the street. They weren’t many but the first thing I thought was ‘something interesting must be going on‘ and I was not wrong. There were a few guys holding a chicken each! One of the guys and I had a quick chat, they were basically raising money to fund the bird center nearby. And then he allowed me to hold and pet the big chicken for a while and that was absolutely amazing! You can tell it by the silly smile on my face 😀


Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed it ^^ I’ve never really done proper favourites before, so it was nice to recap everything from this autumn and emphasize on the positive moments 🙂 What is your autumn favourite?

    Ooh, that’s so cool that you got to pet an owl! I also love your new camera, it’s amazing how much the quality of the photos improve right! 😀 I am also a fan of hot chocolate. Even now in spring, I still have it every few nights 😂

      You never really think about how much do you need a camera, until you actually get one! 😀 And yes, chocolate is life, all year round.

    How awesome ! That owl looks so majestic ✨ And I’m impress at anyone who can handle a “real” camera ! I would have gotten one but I’ve always been afraid of not knowing how to use it properly (along side with the fact that it’s too expensive for me haha). We’re on the same page, my own favorites are scheduled for tonight ! 😊

      It’s definitely majestic! I was really excited to hold it, but also touched it with respect 🙂
      There are many affordable cameras, especially now on Black Friday events and stuff, you could also get one second hand just to get used to it before investing in a really good camera. That’s what I did and no regrets so far 🙂
      And I guess, great minds think alike xx

    Candles and hot chocolate have been making regular appearances in my house for a month or so now! And petting an owl is too cool! Thanks for sharing! xo

    I was never a huge fan of candles either but I really appreciate them now. The photo is lovely of you petting an owl. I think an autumn favourite for me is ginger – I have an autumn obsession to that flavour in my hot chocolate and even ginger biscuits. x

    WOW, I love owls and that’s amazing you got to touch one! I’ve been to an owl sanctuary but we only got up close to them, not to touch one.
