Why I love Autumn- Autumn Falls

Hey!Long time, No see. I apologize for the fact I haven't posted for like 2 weeks. My laptop is broken, I am currently using my sisters and also I went back to school last week and although I am enjoying it, I am being bombarded with extra work and homework to do which leaves very little time for blogging. I hope you understand, hopefully I will get a bit more free time to blog soon. . But anyway, Autumn is near  here. The summer holidays have ended and there's no longer sun shining in the sky. This makes me really happy as Autumn is definitely my favourite season of the year and with a new season comes a new secret blogger project and this is my first post from Autumn Falls. So here are the reasons why I love autumn,

Hot chocolate, although for me I drink hot chocolate all year round because I am a bit fan addict, there's nothing better than drinking a warm hot chocolate after a cold windy day spent outside.

Dark lipsticks, now I love my deep purple and red shades especially in the autumn, its such a great makeup trend. Look forward to a post where I share my favourite autumnal lipsticks.

Jumpers, jumpers are just so warm and cozy during the colder months, they are so comfortable and look effortless whenever you wear one.

Boots, these are my favourite type of footwear, there are so many different styles and are just so good to wear during the Autumn.

Cozy nights in front of the TV,  I mean this is all year round, but its expecially nice, in autumn, to cuddle up with blankets and watch a cheesy Rom-Com or your favourite TV series, 

Candles, the autumn is a perfect time for candles. I love how they can bring a room to life, I like to have candles lit in our Living Room whilst we watch the TV, it creates such a perfect atmosphere.

Walks with the dogs. Autumn is such a perfect time to go out walking, you can hear the leaves crunching underneath your feet and you can wrap up warm and just walk for miles.

So those are a few reasons why I like Autumn? What do you like about Autumn?

DIY- Quote Notebook

Hey, so this is my first ever DIY on my blog. For my friend Bethany's birthday I decided to make her a notebook. I watched a video on youtube and got inspiration to do this. It is really simple to achieve, but is such a cute and fun way to spice up a normal notebook

You Will Need

                                    A notebook, preferably with quite a strong cover
                                                                    Paint Brush
                                                      Sharpie/permanent marker
                                Image or stencil relating to the theme of the notebook

For Bethany's I decided to do a disney theme, because she loves disney. But you could do anything you like, a film, singer, book as long as you can get quotes to use.

Firstly I painted the front cover of the notebook white, It needed quite a few coats, i then left it to dry.
I then found the quotes, and wrote them on the notebook with the Sharpie, it really is that easy. 
I then printed out a Mickey Mouse picture and made it into a stencil and I painted that in the middle of the notebook and drew around that with a sharpie.

There you go, it's that easy and doesn't take any time at all. I think this is such a unique gift to give, and it also looks really cute.

Let me know if you want to see more DIY's from me?

Until Next Time Katie x

Telling your friends about your blog?

Hey, so I thought I would write a quick little post on how I told my friends about my blog. I know it's different for most people whether they want to keep their blogs private or share with the whole world, and it doesn't matter either way. To begin with when I first started writing this blog I didn't want to tell anyone, it was my secret and to be honest I was a little embarrassed, because I'm quite a shy person believe it or not, but my blog was a way to let me come out of my shell and talk about whatever I wanted to talk about, and I was worried some of my friends would judge me for it. 

The first person who found out about my blog was my sister, she was snooping over my shoulder and noticed blogger, she then told my mam and the rest of my family. Because she really can't keep a secret. Hi, if you're reading, Beth. After the audience of my blog grew and I started the Secret Blogger Project, I gained more confidence in my blog and myself and was ready to tell more people. I first told my best friend Katie, I think I just dropped it into conversation, and it wasn't really a big thing.

The second person I told was my friend Kyra, this actually happened by accident, my camera had broken and I was taking blog photos on my phone and I tried to send them to myself on facebook and of course I sent them to Kyra, so I  had to explain why she was getting photos of my clothes sent to her. I then told the rest of my friends by asking them whether I could use the prom photos on my blog. 

In the Secret Blogger Project kik chat we had a conversation about telling people about our blogs, and after that I put it in my Instagram bio, so I have no idea how many people who I know have read my blog, but I'm not that bothered. No one has ever said anything bad to my face about it. So i guess that's my exerience with telling people about my blog. Sometimes people might not understand it, my parents definitely didn't at first. But you shouldn't be ashamed to be proud of your blog and if you want to tell people about it you should.

Have you told your friends about your blog, why or why not?

Until Next Time, Katie x
