Helloo my lil’ pumpkins πŸŽƒ!

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening πŸ’ž! It depends on where you live really πŸ˜…! 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 thatΒ cruel… I think 😁! I’m going astray again. Ahem. Today, my fellow bloggers, I will be doing an expectation vs reality post! Yippee πŸ’–! Before I start, I would like to do the polite thing and say…


Well, you’re not really here yet but… heehee πŸ˜†! 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 πŸ’ž.



LOOK AT THE PUG. LOOK AT IT 😍!Β 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, uglyΒ 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 β˜•οΈ! In my mind, hot chocolate means marshmallows, whipped cream, cinnamon and overall… yummy goodness πŸ’–πŸ˜‹!

Hot Chocolate (Reality)

I normally have the Cadbury hot chocolate powder with boiling water which is still delicious πŸ’—! However, a few toppings and whipped cream would be an absolutely perfect autumn drink!

Candles (Expectation)

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 ✨!

Candles (Reality)

The reality is tea lights. Boring, old, Β£1 tea lights 😁! Although these candles still set a calm aura over your home, they don’t have any scents πŸ˜•! They are still kind of cute though…

Outfits (Expectation)

Cute bobble hats, bulky scarves, comfy sweaters… *gushes* 😌! This is the expectation.

Outfits (Reality)

Since the autumn weather here in London is extremely chilly (it is sweltering at the moment which is unusual πŸ˜‚), I normally wear leggings/joggers, wellies, a plain cardigan and a thickΒ winter coat πŸ˜…! It is cosy though πŸ’–!


Can you relate? Do YOU have any other struggles that you want to share? Comment down below πŸ’ž!

That’s it for this blog post! I hope that you enjoyed reading it although it was quite shortΒ πŸ˜‰!

Until next time.

With much love,
