4 Things to Look Forward to in the Autumn

Posted on 31 Aug 2018 by Anna Scott
Last week we gave you a few pointers on how to soak up the last of the summer sunshine, but what about when we need to turn the heating on again? Well, worry not – autumn has lots of things going for it. Some of you will need no persuasion when it comes to the season’s charms and have been itching to get your cardigans back on for a while now. But if you are suffering from the end of the summer blues, here are a few things to you excited for the season of soups, sweaters and some guilt-free sitting in front of the telly.


Autumnal Comfort Food

Everyone loves the smell of a barbeque (apart from when you can’t shift it from your clothes), but let’s face it – summer food can get just a wee bit boring. There are only so many things you can do with an iceberg lettuce and some cold cuts. But not so autumnal comfort food. We’re talking beef stew, chicken pie, roast lamb and steamed puddings and custard. Basically, all the things that are great about British cuisine. If you live in a part of the country where autumn is very much showing it’s face already (hello Scotland), take the opportunity to stock up on a few autumn favourites by ordering online with Sainsbury’s. And if you’ve never shopped with them this way before, you can currently claim a great introductory discount on your first delivery.

Autumn Fashion Favourites

Just like some of us prefer the comfort of a hearty stew, others might also prefer the cosiness of a warm cardigan to a vest top and denim shorts. Yes, perfect as they may during a heatwave, it doesn’t stop us hankering after something to cover ourselves up with in a stylish manner after several weeks. As every fashionista knows, autumn is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a few new garments, or even an entire wardrobe full of cold weather clothing - chic winter coats, snuggly jumpers and all sorts of accessories are ready and waiting for you to get over the summer madness and get onboard. If you haven’t got much spare spending money, Dorothy Perkins always have their finger on the fashion pulse at a very reasonable price, and if you’ve never ordered with them before, you can get an extra 10% off when you sign up to receive their newsletter.

Home Makeovers

The thing about the colder weather is that it makes us spend that much more time inside. And the thing about spending more time inside is that you start to notice if your interiors are in a need of a bit of TLC. Whether you’ve got a whole home makeover in mind or just a few small changes here and there, autumn is a great time of year for a bit of indoors DIY or just some sprucing up. Dunelm always have lots of great deals on many different items for the home including bedding sets and bathroom accessories, and you never know what a difference some new sheets and toilet roll holder could make.

The Best TV of the Year

Talking of spending more time indoors, there’s a good chance a lot of it will be spent in front of the TV or laptop, binge-watching your old and new favourites. Of course, you can access many of them at any time of year thanks to all those useful streaming services. But there are certain TV favourites and new series that are only available at this time of year including The Great British Bake Off, Strictly Come Dancing and all the new drama releases. So view the evenings drawing in as an excuse for you to put your feet up with a cuppa and a slice of cake and enjoy all that comfort telly.
