Happy Autumn

Happy Autumn!  With today being the first day of autumn I thought I would share a few things I love to do during this season.

 -Collect apples from my grandparents tree to make lots of yummy things with.
-Go for long walks in the moors or park and find crispy leave to kick about.
-Start a new crochet project.
-Watch practical magic a million times.
-Read, a lot!
-Start watching Sabrina the teenage witch boxset with Penny.
-Overkill my love of pumpkin spiced things
-making these. Hearteyes! 

I'm pretty sure this list will grow rapidly but so far that my must do's.  Do you have any autumn/fall rituals or traditions?

Getting Autumn Ready

A Character Cottage : Country style living room by Heart Home magazine
Once again it's that time of year (is it just me or is it flying by?!) where summer is starting to slowly creep away and signs of autumn are close by.  I love seeing the transition between seasons and switching up everything to fit.

During the summer months I love everywhere to feel fresh, light and airy.  Everyday, wherever possible I like to open all my window and doors and spend as much time outside as we can.

But now those days are very much numbered I want to create a warm and comforting space.  The base of my home is very simple and easily transformed with accessories and soft furnishings, usually the first place that gets a seasonal makeover within my home is the living room. 

The first thing I like to do is change up all the cushions on my sofa and chairs, it's such a simple and quick way to refresh a space plus it doesn't break the bank!  I reach for much richer colours that are earthy in tone, also I love adding anything with an interesting and cosy texture.

Candles are my next port of call, I'm a huge lover of a scented candle especially in my living room.  I'm one of those people who has a fragrance that suits the current season.  During autumn I choose scents that are warm, woody and spicy.

Not only do candles smell gorgeous I love the comforting glow they give off on an evening, which make any room automatically feel snug and the ideal setting for curling up with a good book. Also what bohemian home would be without them?!

The final thing I like to do to transition my living room is add in some more blankets and throws, I have one I crocheted which stays in all year round but adding something in a faux fur or sheepskin really add that comfort that's wanted as the days get colder.

The best thing about these mini makeover is they are not expensive to do and you can easily suit them to your budget, you can really refresh and change up a space without having to dedicate much time or money.  Plus you can always store away your other items and get them out next season instead of purchasing things each season.

Spanish Summer

Things have been a little quiet as we decided to take a little trip and go on an adventure to the Spanish sun in Mallorca.

It's somewhere I have visited to many times,  it's only a two hour flight  so its the perfect quick escape to the sun. Plus it's the first time we took the kids on a plane!  We usually sneak away like this time here, here and here.

The weather was perfect not to hot for the kids but bright, sunny and warm, and sea had been warmed up nicely through out the summer leaving it the perfect temperature for swimming in.

On this trip we travelled to the east coast of Mallorca, it was a love quite town just outside all the hustle and bustle.

We took a mini sight seeing bus around the town which the kids loved! Spend many a lazy day by the pool and beach, so it was a perfect mini break.

But now we are back to reality and getting back to routine.

Have you ever been to Mallorca? is it somewhere on your travel list?
