15 Reasons Why Autumn is Amazing


You know how this equation goes - whether you love or hate it, the good old Autumn’s back and you can’t fast forward time to yet another endless Summer no matter how hard you might want it. 

Personally, I was counting days ‘till my favourite season arrived and now that we’ve finally entered the glorious phase of crispy golden leaves, hot drinks, warm soups and fluffy blankets I couldn’t be happier. 

And if you’re one of those people who still feel the summertime sadness vibe, I’m begging you - give Autumn a chance and it just might positively surprise you. And here’s why: 

1. All of a sudden everything becomes perfectly moody.

2. The trees look wonderful, colorful leaves are literally everywhere and a long walk around a park or through a nearby forest is a perfect weekend activity.

3. It’s no longer hot as hell and not yet cold as ice so it’s perfect time for wandering around.


4. And when you come back home, the only thing you want is to light a scented candle and make yourself a hot chocolate. Or tea. Because from now on, every day is a tea day.

5. Yes, days are shorter and we’re not fan of that but Autumn has the best sunsets so don’t forget to enjoy them.

6. Layers, layers, layers because cheers to sweater weather!

7. All of a sudden you start counting days ‘till Christmas because you simply love it too much not to.

8. Adjective fluffy somehow finds a way into your everyday vocabulary. There’s your favourite fluffy blanket, and oh look at those cute fluffy socks and how warm and cosy is that fluffy sweater…sounds familiar?

9. Long bubble baths. No explanation needed.

10. Colder nights are made for reading books, for hours, before you fall asleep.

11. There’s that unevitable feeling of a new beginning so go through your goals, wishes and dreams and check how you’re progressing. Don’t forget there’s still plenty of time to make it happen before the year ends.


12. Because of all that colour combinations in nature, the rain, the mist, a bit slower pace of everything (at least that’s how it seems), this season brings back a lot of memories. Go through those old photos and diaries, share them with your friends and loved ones, write about them and above all - cherish them.

13. Your favourite TV-shows are back on (who else is crazy excited for a new season of How to get away with murder?) and that Gilmore Girls special on Netflix is finally approaching after months and months of waiting anxiously.

14. Has anyone said chocolate cake? Yes, colder weather is to blame for that mindset ‘I want a slice of cake and a tiramisu and pancakes all together for breakfast’.

15. Cloudy and rainy weather might not look appealing to you but they’re more inspiring than bright, hot and completely lazy summer skies. Let’s face it, we’ve been procrastinating for the last couple of months living the salty and carefree beach life, now it’s time to start working. 


And how do you feel about the new season - excited or can't wait for summery heat again?

  1. Le sigh...so many yeses right now! I just wish signs of fall would hit SoCal - we're still suffering in triple digit heat. :(

  2. Yep! Ja bas volim jesen, pogotovo otkad zivim u Helsinkiju i ovdje se bas dozivi prava promjena godsinjeg doba. Ponkead ne mogu vjerovati kako magicno grad izgleda sa svim tim sarenim, toplim tonovima lisca i drveca u parkovima i uz ceste. Volim nositi layers, volim da je sve nekako "chill" i naravno to sto mi je rodjendan sredinom 10. mj. :D

    1. Da, kod tebe na instagramu se baš vidi promjena godišnjeg doba, moram priznati da mi to malo fali jer ovdje u principu gotovo sve izgleda identično, osim kad odeš negdje van grada u prirodu. I jeeej za rođendan! :D

  3. Ma ni ja ne bi stvari ovako lijepo srocila i sistematizirala :) Bravo, tocno OVO SVEEEE! Predivno i najljepse godisnje doba i samo da nam ga globalno zatopljenje (iliti MI) ne unisti (sjecam se jedne godine kada je zima dosla odmah nakon ljeta...cak se ni siroto drvece nije "snaslo") :/ Cheers to autumn! Odo uzeti fluffy dekicu! ;)

    1. Haha hvala ti :D Ajme najgore mi je to kad se godišnja doba svedu na zimu i ljeto, a meni su najdraža upravo ona dva u sredini koja više toliko ne dolaze do izražaja pa se trudim koliko mogu uživati u ovim danima dok se jedno jutro ne probudim i shvatim da se zima došuljala preko noći. Blažene fluffy dekice! :))

  4. Jesen je stvarno posebna, baš si u pravu što se tiče svega što si napisala, ima nešto u jeseni što nas navodi na preispitivanje i pregledavanje starih uspomena. Stari Indijci su vjerovali da je jesen najbolje vrijeme za pripremu duše (pa za što god već) jer je u proljeće i ljeto čovjek više vezan za svijet i materijalno, a kada dođe jesen dođe sama po sebi ta neka okrenutost unutarnjem.

    Ja sam isto sretna što je jesen došla i nekako je i ja vežem uz dekice, čajeve i šetnje....a možda ima i prednosti čak i u tome što je dan kraći, možemo se više naspavati. Ja imam lošu naviku da kasno idem leći, rano se dižem, pa mi ovo dobro dođe da malo izjednačim spavanje. Kada je hladno nikako mi se ne da iz kreveta pa odspavam malo duže.

    1. Joj nisi jedina s tim lošim navikama po pitanju spavanja, ja imam dojam da svaku večer idem sve kasnije leći, a suludo se trudim buditi što ranije ujutro što trenutačno (da budem najiskrenija) uopće ne funkcionira jer budem ko zombi i boli me glava pa se onda dignem oko 10 i već u startu imam dojam da sam profućkala čitav dan.

    2. tako je, znaš onu tko rano rani cijeli dan je umoran...ja se nekad probudim u sedam ujutro ali mi treba par sati da dođem sebi, prema tome bolje da odspavam još sat i sve je odmah bolje.

  6. Ja volim jesen, radujem joj se. Baš mi to opalo lišće nedostaje kad sam na moru jer ovde malo ima listopadnog drveća (tj. ima gore u brdima), dole uz obalu su uglavnom palme i četinari koji izgledaju manje-više isto tokom cele godine :-)

    1. To opalo lišće mi je apsolutno najdraža stvar vezana uz jesen, ko malo dijete uživam šetati po njemu i čuti ono pucketanje. Al onda kad krenu stalne kiše, više nije fora :D

  7. Not sure how I feel about autumn because it's the season I get sick the most! >:( I do enjoy the colours in autumn though because golden leaves are so pretty! I also love the scenery last year when I travelled to Korea when the leaves were changing and it was absolutely beautiful... I can't quite relate to taking long baths though because we don't have a bathtub haha!

    BUT YES TO TV COMING BACK. I need my shows to start again :D I do wish we could jump from summer, a bit of autumn then Christmas though - all the months in between often make me so tired! Plus it's my birthday month in December heheh!

  9. Ja moram da se pohvalim da sam ove godine stvarno uspela da ne kukam za letom i da gledam na jesen sasvim drugim očima, jer da, i sama volim baš svaku stvar koju si i navela. Isto tako, ovde je dosta umerena pa se neće desiti da danima pada kiša i slično, a temperatura je nekako baš taman. Nije moje omiljeno godišnje doba, ali sam odličila da svako od njih bude zbog nečega jer klimu ne možemo da promenimo već da izvučemo maksimum iz nje :) Ja sam ti tipičan primer osobe koje voli cozy i fluffy, i iako sam skitalo, u nekom paralelnom univerzumu sam ona kućna mačka što prede pored kamina poluzatvorenih očiju :D
