By Polly Florence - December 21, 2017

Who else is struggling to believe that it's almost the last week of 2017? This year has flown by and I feel like the last few months have gone by the quickest. As autumn is my absolute favourite time of year I try and savour every moment and wanted to relive some of my favourite things and moments from September to November.

Autumn has been filled with lots of cosy, quiet days with lots of coffee and books but also with some favourite stand out days...I realised that I had two blog posts already up about those days so instead of basically repeating those posts, I thought I'd just link them here— Pumpkin Patch Adventures from October & A Couple of Days in Amsterdam from November. ♡

Although I've been in a pretty bad reading slump recently there have been three books that I have loved this autumn— The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Artemis by Andy Weir & my annual reread of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, they were all five star reads for me and I definitely recommend them all if you're looking for something new to read- I've linked their Goodreads pages if you want to check them out!

I wanted to mention two things I watched and loved this autumn— Thor, Ragnarok which I definitely wasn't expecting to like as much as I did & Stranger Things 2 which I was expecting to love but it completely blew my expectations out of the water, I LOVED it so much and it's become one of most favourite tv series.

Other bits and pieces I loved; a new hand cream from Lush which I've definitely been needing during the colder months, the one I use is Handy Gurugu; my Classic Ashfield watch from Daniel Wellington; my favourite brown leather shoes from Office which are perfect for autumn as they're not quite shoes but not quite boots either and my favourite Pumpkin Spice candle from P. F Candle Co.


Some of my favourite Instagram feeds at the moment that are giving me so much inspiration...

I hope you've enjoyed this little look back at some of the things that have been my favourite at the end of 2017, I would love to know what you've been loving recently whether it's books, Instagram accounts, songs or any random things—  let me know in the comments! Hope you all have a lovely day!
