Expectations vs. Reality: Autumn Edition

(Pic from Pinterest)
I really love Autumn and I know most people do (especially us bloggers) and we all get super excited for it because it means Christmas is getting closer and Lush releases their A/W collection! OMG! And how could I forget about the pumpkin spice lattes?! I finally tried one over the weekend for the very first time and I now 100% understand the hype. I have been craving one ever since! #BASICBITCHANDPROUD

But sometimes our expectations are completely different to our reality so I rounded up a few that make me giggle and are soo true.

So, here are 9 expectations vs. reality for the autumn months...

warm drinks = burnt tongues

wearing layers = having to strip off every time you walk into a shop

cold weather = catching a cold or getting the flu..this has already happened to me this season 

bold lips = constantly being paranoid that you've smudged your lipstick all over your face

cozy nights in= having the lights on from 4pm or stubbing your toe on every piece of furniture

autumn walks = slipping on soggy leaves

cold weather pt 2 = windy and rainy days where your umbrella blows inside out..ffs

snuggling up = wearing fluffy socks, pj's, dressing gown and still being cold..

new skincare = not being able to fix your dry skin no matter how many layers of moisturiser you apply


What are some of your expectations vs. realities for autumn?






P.S I actually love the autumn time and it my favourite season..<3

  2. I love layering but it is annoying when you have to keep adding on and then having to take off layers! x

  10. I am with you no the burnt tongue for the hot drinks!
    I don't like tea or coffee so I normally just stick to water. The odd time that I have a hot chocolate I always get a burnt tongue or I have to wait half an hour just to be able to take a sip!

  14. The one about stripping off all your layers when going into shops or other people's homes is so on point! I always end up peeling off loads of layers and then feeling really sweaty and gross. Lovely post, super refreshing and funny.

  20. Ahh this post is fab! So true!! I'd also say that there is an expectation of 'bold lips' but the reality is 'chapped and dry', haha

    Love it :D
