Autumn Clichés We All Love to Hate


Autumn is in the air, the leaves are falling, the air is getting crisper and with that comes some of my little peeves about Autumn and the clichés that come with it. Through talking to people on Twitter I know I'm not alone so get comfy, sit back and have a read...

Pumpkin Flavoured Everything - 
I don't know when this started but I blame Starbucks for making the trend even bigger. Pumpkin's smell and taste vile, the only thing they're good for is carving to make lanterns for Halloween but everywhere I look now it is Pumpkin flavoured something, Pumpkin pie, roasted Pumpkin seeds, Pumpkin muffins and the main culprit, the Pumpkin Spiced Latte. I tried it, I wanted to throw up and then moaned about the £3 or so I'd just spent on a cup of puke. Hand me a boring old latte any day.

Autumnal -
That bloody word! I didn't even know it existed before I started blogging, if anything I used the word Autumny but everywhere you look is the damn word. The first time I ever said it out loud I received a look of disgust from a friend, the same look she would've given me if I'd run over a squirrel. If there was a blogging dictionary, this word would be in it along with a  photo of a woman straight off the boards of Pinterest looking very Autumnal. (Ps. Of course a blogging dictionary would have pictures...duh!) 

Berry Lip Posts - 
I'm not going to lie, I have one going up this week (on the official day of Autumn) because we all love a berry lip right?! I almost feel like the minute the clock strikes 12am on the 1st September all the blogging elves in our heads start thinking of all our favourite Autumn shades in prep for the Lipstick post we all have to immediately post the first week of September. Mac Diva? Check. Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry? Check. We've all done it and yes, I've included both of those shades in my own post...

Instagram Autumn Overhaul - 
The jumper photos, Starbuck's oh so beautiful new cups, downward boot shot in crunchy leaves, your new wooly hat and gloves, Autumn inspired quotes, Halloween, sparklers, fireworks, the list is endless, just take a quick look at Instagram and you'll see what I mean... We are all so guilty of it #autumnclichés #autumn #autumnvibes #autumnfeels #cosy #blablablablablablablabla.

If there are any other Autumn clichés that you can think of please let me know in the comments below as I'm sure there are plenty more!

  4. I was so surprised to see Pumpkin Spice the other day at Starbucks, they usually appear around October. Guess Autumn came earlier this year, great post! xx

  5. Totally agree with the pumpkin flavoured things! What even if that, it seriously tastes grim - chai tea latte on the other hair now that is still an autumn cliche but it is a bloody good one! x

  10. Pumpkin is awful! Although the Starbucks cups are pretty. Totally guilty of everything else though.

  11. I'm guilty of all of these. I also find myself constantly taking photos of 'Autumnal' (I prefer Autumny too) leaves everywhere I go. Pumpkin drinks are just plain rank but apparently Starbucks are releasing a Salted Caramel Mocha this Autumn, that's a drink I could get behind!
