Autumn Loves: September Favourites

Wednesday, 14 October 2020




Another month ends in this weird timewarp that is 2020 and we move on, I’m still feeling like it was only the spring a month ago but that’s just how things are at the moment. September brought a lot of things for me, the autumn being one we all experienced but also the end of my Masters when I handed in my dissertation at the start of the month. Thus meaning I had a lot more time for other things, and I mean I haven’t done a favourites post on here since February so it was well overdue. This will be split into categories so if there’s a part of lifestyle you really want to skip you can do that easily.


Ghosts.

Ghosts came back at the end of the month with season 2, but If you missed series 1 last year it’s all on iplayer don’t worry. Ghosts is a hilarious house share style sitcom with a twist, that a young couple Mike and Allison not only have to live in a haunted house but all of the ghosts have to also live with each other. Made by the actors who brought us horrible histories, Ghosts carries the same easy humour we all adored when we were younger. As someone who loved horrible histories I knew I’d most likely adore this when it came out last year, it’s just the sort of light hearted comedy to get us through 2020. I love it so much that I can’t even decide on a favourite ghost, they’re all such original characters and just continue to showcase the talents of the Horrible Histories cast we’re all glad joined our screens 10 years ago.

The Shipman Files

I love a good documentary, especially true crime. Usually I work my way through them on Netflix, though a friend recommended me this one that’s another BBC pick. At the moment I’ve only actually watched one of the episodes, but I enjoyed it so much that I’ve decided to put it on the list. Harold Shipman is viewed to be one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers and this documentary not only looks at why, but also how his case differed in that they found the killer before working out who and how many victims he had. I also loved how the first episode questions that he went under the radar for so long because of how we view pensioners as a victim since they’ve ‘already lived their lives’. A really fascinating watch, recommend it to anyone who is interested in true crime.



Taylor Swift Folklore

This was probably the album I listened to most over the summer and I can honestly see it being my most listened to autumn album too. I never usually associate music with seasons, more with moods but to me this album screams autumn. The soft lyrics and sound just feel cosy, almost like coming home and curling up with a book. As comforting as a cardigan, this will probably be my most listened to album of the year. Taylor Swift did it again, producing the one of the only good things to come out of 2020. No one is asking, but my favourite tracks are probably Exile and Betty. 


Baby got Books podcast

Jasmine is a fellow blogger and I came across her podcast this month, I just can’t get enough of it. The book discussions are fun and refreshing, making listening just feel like you’re almost part of the book club the three girls have. Not only that but the detail and planning that goes into every week is really shown by the themed cocktails they make which are centred around each book. I’ve yet to try any of the drinks, but they’ve all looked amazing so far and I am sure to share when I do actually make one of the amazing cocktails they’ve shared.


Sewing

Now I have more time I’ve really been enjoying getting back into sewing since over lockdown I only actually made one project! I have some amazing fabrics that I’ve picked up from local craft stores around me, when getting things like sewing supplies I strongly recommend going local! I’ve found it’s the small haberdasheries who have the best selection of fabrics for almost every project you could imagine, and you’re also supporting someone’s small business so really there are no losers! The prices are fairly similar too to online retailers since any price markdown you find on a website usually adds up when you come to postage. I’m currently working on a dress mock up that I’ll probably share when it’s finished, I may even share the creation process on Instagram too! I have made a selection of masks and scrunchies to go with the season that I am debating about selling on etsy since I do think we should maybe have a little fun with face masks as they’re now part of the every day essentials.



What have you been enjoying so far this autumn?
