This change in season is making me seriously feel like I’m losing my mojo. I want to curl up in a corner surrounded by wheat based products or mashed potatoes. I have the urge to bake like I’ve never baked before.
I think its comfort I need, comfort from delicious warm foodstuffs and cosy layers and blankets. I realise we are nowhere near winter yet but there is definitely a chill in the air and the evenings are getting darker earlier. The sunshine is becoming more vague in it’s appearance (or is that because my building is still encased in scaffolding that the light in my flat is perpetually dull? Big shout out to the painters obvs…) and I need to pull myself away from the want of hibernation by embracing autumn with both mittens and enjoy shopping for Autumn essentials, these are some of mine:
Charnos tights I have cable ribbed, striped and black with multi-coloured dots – all super soft, cosy and comfortable.
Hand knit cable hot water bottles just like Granny used to knit…
Super soft cashmere bed socks I have several pairs of these, they feel so delicious against your feet, a real treat.
Cath Kidston Cake stand to sit all my home baking on.
And if I’m feeling really decadent, some Charbonnel et Walker drinking chocolate to go with a cupcake.
Have you thought about….
Saving your money on a weekend away to a country cottage with a real fire and just buying an ‘open fire’ DVD
Buying (or making) your Halloween costume now to beat the queues at the fancy dress shop in five weeks time?
Donating all those summer (and winter) clothes you didn’t (and don’t) wear to charity instead of storing them away in case they come back into fashion/fit again (when you know you will never wear them again, with or without spanx).
