Helloo my lil’ pumpkins 🎃!
Good morning, good afternoon and good evening 💞! It depends on where you live really 😅! ANYWHO…
Sometimes, life gives us questions. Therefore, here is a question for you… WHO DOESN’T LOVE AUTUMN *random person raises hand*?!
*Gasps dramatically* Well… YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO SOCIETY 😠!
*Random person cries*
I’M ONLY JOKING 😊! I’m not that cruel… I think 😁! I’m going astray again. Ahem. Today, my fellow bloggers, I will be doing an expectation vs reality post! Yippee 💖! Before I start, I would like to do the polite thing and say…
Well, you’re not really here yet but… heehee 😆! Disclaimer: All photos are from the wonderful world of the internet.
An Autumn Weekend (Expectation):
Oh my goodness. The expectation…
Well. Whenever I think of autumn, I think of cute lil’ dogs rolling around in leaves or amazing Pinterest/Tumblr-worthy photography 💞.
LOOK AT THE PUG. LOOK AT IT 😍! You know what… I just can’t… I mean… ugh!
An Autumn Weekend (Reality):
This is literally me:
*Ties hair into the messiest top-knot imaginable*
*Throws on a million sweaters (yep, even the abandoned, ugly ones from last Christmas)*
*Slouches on the sofa, turns on Netflix and drinks the most basic, ‘no-frills’ hot chocolate*
Now this, ladies and gentlemen, is reality!
Hot Chocolate (Expectation)
You can probably tell that I am OBSESSED with hot chocolate whenever it is Autumn ☕️! In my mind, hot chocolate means marshmallows, whipped cream, cinnamon and overall… yummy goodness 💖😋!
Hot Chocolate (Reality)
I normally have the Cadbury hot chocolate powder with boiling water which is still delicious 💗! However, a few toppings and whipped cream would be an absolutely perfect autumn drink!
I love having candles around the house since they smell phenomenal and they also set a really tranquil and cosy atmosphere ☺️! The expectation is having many different candles each one smelling an autumnal scent like Pumpkin Spice or Cinnamon ✨!
The reality is tea lights. Boring, old, £1 tea lights 😁! Although these candles still set a calm aura over your home, they don’t have any scents 😕! They are still kind of cute though…
Cute bobble hats, bulky scarves, comfy sweaters… *gushes* 😌! This is the expectation.
Since the autumn weather here in London is extremely chilly (it is sweltering at the moment which is unusual 😂), I normally wear leggings/joggers, wellies, a plain cardigan and a thick winter coat 😅! It is cosy though 💖!
Can you relate? Do YOU have any other struggles that you want to share? Comment down below 💞!
That’s it for this blog post! I hope that you enjoyed reading it although it was quite short 😉!
Until next time.
With much love,
