A Guide To A Great Autumnal Sunday

If you had told me five years ago that by the time I was bordering on twenty I would enjoy waking up early in the morning, then I would have told you that you must be mad. Sunday's are all about lazy starts, spending the morning reading in bed and having a boiled egg or two, but in order to make the most of a Sunday, I like to wake up early. Now, I'm not saying get up at 5am, do a quick few laps around your estate, clean up and eat a full breakfast all before 8am, but waking up at a suitable time, say a little later than you usually would in the week, can be a nice way to not disturb your sleeping pattern. 

As I mentioned, Sunday morning is all about delving into your favourite book - I am currently reading Annie Darling's Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts which is the perfect lightweight reading for the weekend. I usually read for an hour, make a delicious pile of scrambled eggs on toast and then get ready for the day, feeling refreshed and well rested. 

If I'm off out, there's nothing that quite says Sunday like a long, brisk walk in the countryside. I'm lucky that I live near the Chiltern Hills, but there are some amazing National Trust spots to visit and get snap happy in. Likewise, I am always on the look out for weekend days out such as a nature walk, a fete or, as Halloween is coming up, there are already some spooky inspired events going on. Collecting conkers, going to a pumpkin patch and photographing all of the brown, crisp leaves are top of my priority list at the moment.  

If going out exploring in the Autumn rain doesn't tickle your fancy, then having a Hygge inspired day indoors certainly will. I like to light as many candles as I can, grab a pile of soft, cosy blankets and sit down for a marathon of my favourite TV show whilst dinner is in the oven. The Great British Bake Off re-runs are a great Sunday pick, but of course catching up on X-Factor is top of the list too. 

Sunday always finishes off with a pamper to ease myself into the following week. The Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Honey Bath has been my favourite for sweet smelling, soft bubbles that are good enough to eat. I follow with a slathering of the matching Creme Brûlée Soufflé Body Creme to nourish and indulge the skin. 

What do you like to do on a Sunday?
