Three Things Autumn Edit

Autumn truly is my favourite season, especially when the days are sunny, dry and just slightly crisp. I love getting cozy, layering up clothes & cooking warming autumnal dishes. To me autumn is the season of hot spiced cider, scarfs, boots and red leaves. 

One: Cozy Knits

Now is the perfect time to stock up on gorgeous knits and layer them for maximum coziness. Some of my favourite pieces come form the gorgeous H&M Studio AW 15 line and the Oasis & Warehouse AW15 collections.

Two: Orchard Glow aka Spiced Apple Juice

One of my favourite things to do in Autumn is to hit the Dublin food markets, head to the Llewellyn's Orchard stand and get a cup of their Orchard Glow which is a hot spiced cloudy apple juice with a shot of apple brandy. It's practically autumn in a cup!

However if you can't make it to one of the Dublin food markets it is really easy to recreate this at home! Heat some cloudy apple juice with a stick of cinnamon, some cloves, cardamom pods and let them infuse for a while. To make it extra warming add a dash of calvados (apple brandy) or whiskey.

Three: Fire

My fire place is one of my favourite places in my house. There is nothing as cozy and comforting as a crackling fire when the nights get chilly. I also love burning scented candles around that time of year. Two of my all time favourites are the This Works Black Spice & Cedar candle and the Pomegranate Noir one from Jo Malone (I need to buy another one of these!)Fireplace and candle

Link Love

There's no point denying it, I live with my phone, laptop and iPad pretty much physically attached to me. It's not ideal but I just can't get enough of the amazing sites that are out there! I love discovering new amazing sites so thought we will share some of our link love with you...

stylemepretty.com (29 Popsicles to Beat the Heat)

PopsiclesStyle Me Pretty is one of my favourite websites ever and I visit it daily. So. Beautiful. Just recently their article with summer popsicle recipes popped up in my Pinterest feed. Not sure how the weather is where you are in the world but here in Dublin summer has decided not to make an appearance just yet. I however am determined to at least pretend it's warm and will be eating popsicles at home looking out on the rain.
