15 REASONS WHY AUTUMN IS THE BEST SEASON.





Welcome back to my blog, a new post to feast your eyes on!? I know, it's been a while. I have been so busy with work things going on last month and spilling into September, that I totally lost my blogging vibe and motivation. I went on holiday last week and half way through had this sudden wave of anxiety to get back to my blog and tweak everything, so as you can see we've had a teensy revamp. I was going to go all out and even change my blog name, however I just haven't had the time and in all honesty the cons of blog name change outweigh the pro's so we will continue as ALL THAT B for now!
Today's post is all about AUTUMN, it is upon us whether you love it or hate it. I bloody love that Summer is over, it's probably my least favourite season I don't like being hot and I don't like sweating so me and Summer are just never going to be besties and I am okay with that. I am such an autumn girl. I love every single thing about it from fashion to scented candles, Autumn brings the best of everything and today's post is celebrating that. So grab yourself a pumpkin spiced latte & enjoy!


 1. Berry toned lips - if you know me well you will know how obsessed I am with berry toned lipsticks and there is no better time to wear them than Autumn. My current favourites are: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Glastonberry & Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Lipstick in Plum Sensation.

2. Spending Hours Shopping For Boots - my favourite types of shoes to buy are boots and this year has been no exception with so many beautiful designs by all our favourite high street brands including New Look & ASOS. My top picks for autumn are boots with tassels.

3. Home Cooking - Roast dinners, casseroles & stews - all horrendously unhealthy, unless of course you follow Slimming World where you can find millions of recipes to satisfy your autumn comfort food needs, you can find lots of recipes on my Slimming World Pinterest Board.

4. Trench Coats - Probably my favourite fashion essential ever is a trench coat and autumnal weather provides you with the biggest opportunities to wear them. They go with EVERYTHING and really finish off any outfit and can smarten up the most casual of looks.

5. Halloween - Pumpkin carving, halloween crafts, halloween house parties & stealing sweets from your trick or treating toddler, must I go on!?

6. Autumnal Eyes - Gorgeous golds & beautiful browns are the perfect combo for awesome autumnal eyes, check out my top picks on my Autumnal Make Up Pinterest Board.




7. Starbucks/Costa & Coffee In General - It's always more appealing and more satisfactory drinking a hot coffee during the colder months and the high street coffee merchants know this, with limited edition flavours galore, there's never been a better time to spend half your wages on coffee every morning before work.

8. The Increase In Opportunity To Stay In Your Pyjamas ALL DAY - With Autumn comes colder weather & rain, it's universal that rain is negative, but I like to find the positives in everything. Rainy days = an excuse not to leave the house = Pyjamas & Pretty Little Liars allllll day, heaven.

9. Anticipation of Christmas - The Christmas season is my favourite time of year by miles and when Autumn comes knocking it means that Christmas is not far. I definitely enjoy Christmas more now that I have a toddler, I think I get more excited than she does. I start my Christmas shopping at the end of September so that I can prolong the excitement further.

10. Knitwear - Is there anything more perfect than being toasty and super comfy in a thick cable knit sweater!? I don't think so!

11. Burning Scented Candles ALL DAY, EVERY SINGLE DAY - There is no better time to light a scented candle than in Autumn, filling your home with beautiful Autumnal smells, mmm there's nothing better. My favourite Autumn scents are Yankee Candle's Vanilla Bourbon and Jo Malone's English Pear & Freesia.

12. Bonfire Night - Fireworks, Snuggling By The Bonfire & Toffee Apples, OH YES!

13. Trees Become Ridiculously Photogenic - The outdoors becomes more beautiful than ever, the crunch of leaves surrounding your toes and deeper sunsets drawing in earlier and earlier.

14. Leftover Halloween Treats - Over buying sweets & treats for trick or treaters on purpose to then indulge in them for the next week or so.


15. Bikini season and body shame is behind us - the ability to not shave your legs for 6 months hiding them under dozens of pairs of thick black tights and all the lucky bitches on your Facebook timeline flaunting their belly buttons all over the place are a thing of the past. No more bikini body shaming by magazines as they scrutinise celebrities on their summer holidays on the front pages.
