I decided to make a series on my blog! Maybe a seasonals one. I’m gonna start looking for a blogger for Winter chat. I talked to the lovely Estelle on twitter @JeSeraiReine Follow her, she’s the cutest, and she agreed to my chat. So make a cuppa of tea, coffee or even a milk with cinnamon, and enjoy.
1. What makes you excited for Autumn? Is it the festive decorations or just the season?
I’m excited about everything really ! Like the atmosphere, the feeling of a new beginning and fresh start. Decorations obviously are a bonus but the whole season in general. I’ve never been a huge fan of summer, so when Autumn starts coming, I’m excited.
Yeah, something about the atmosphere gets me really festive. It’s all the fairy lights, pumpkins etc. I literally hate Summer, and colder and chilly evenings make me happy so much.
It’s the exact same for me, cold cosy nights makes me sooo happy.
2. What are your top five activities to do in Autumn? Do you prefer doing them outdoors or indoors, and why?
Hmm I don’t really know to be honest, I love trying to travel for the occasion, I spent Halloween once in Belfast, twice in Edinburgh and LOVED it. Also I love pumpkin carving and I love seeing what’s on in my city at the time! You?
Im literally the same, but I love to read books indoors. With cosy blanket, cup of tea and hearing the pouring rain outside. That’s my favourite thing about it. Really? It’s my dream to spent Halloween in NYC or even in Autumn. How was these cities? Which one you enjoyed most?
This sounds amazing, I’m definitely going to do that as well. One day maybe you’ll go to NYC for Halloween, my mum did when she was younger and she told me it was such a nice experience !
Belfast was great because that’s where Halloween comes from so basically EVERYONE celebrates it, but I have to admit I fell in love with Edinburgh (that’s why I went twice at this season) ! Also I’m such a huge Harry Potter fan and this city is amazing at this time of the year for that.
That sounds like a great experience really! Always nice to meet a Harry Potter fan.
3. Since we both love Autumn, what do you think of people naming their kids Autumn, Summer, Winter etc? To me it’s lovely, because Winter sounds so nice for a girl! But I didin’t see someone naming a kid Spring. But the whole concept is nice.
As you said, I feel like the concept is nice, but I believe some people make fun of them so I unfortunately wouldn’t. I used to know one girl call Autumn and I kind of really like it, though I had a bad memory with that person so I guess I would definitely not call my children that way ahah! I said I don’t like summer that much, though for a name I kind of like it!
I see! But you’re right of the laughing part, I met once a girl named like a brand who makes face creams. So it’s really strange!
4. Is there anything you don’t like about Autumn and why? Is it the activities or just the colder weather? Have you ever got bored in home while it was raining?
Well as much as I love being indoors when it’s cold, or even outdoors in parks with crunchy leaves, going to work when it’s basically night time outside, and coming back from work when it is STILL night time outside, and dead cold, isn’t the best part of Autumn ! What do you think ?
You’re right, because going back to home from work / school sucks when it’s so dark out there & cold! I’m an adult, but I’m so scared of walking all alone. Sometimes I even go with a flash light, maybe it’s silly but I’m scared. I have a flashback of someone following me couple years ago, it was Autumn and I was scared to death.
It isn’t silly at all, unfortunately we never know when we’re safe or not and it’s totally understandable, I feel the same if I stay outside in the dark for too long. I think it’s sad we have to feel that way though! And because something like this happened to you, I can understand 100% so don’t feel silly for this, at least it makes you be careful and aware !
5. Do you always celebrate Halloween? What do you dress up as? Is it the cat woman like Monica from Friends, or maybe a pink bunny? I always liked to dress up like someone from Addams family, I thought it was funny!
Ahahah so you go more for the ‘scary” part than the dressing part, I mean I feel like people don’t dress to scare anymore all the time (but that’s funny though!) I love celebrating Halloween, yes. I try my best to do it every year, although my ideas for costumes aren’t the best as I most of time just go for a witch. I will try to be a bit more inspired this year !
What are you doing this year for Halloween? By the way I love the reference to Friends eheh ! I would be like Ross : the potato!
Haha yeah! I love dressing up so scary, when I’m screaming on horror movies and covering my eyes! Witch sounds cool, they always have the best clothes! I’ll probably buy a big pumpkin basket, buy some candy and watch horror movies, as long as I can! Although I’d love to go trick or treating!
Aaah I would love trick or treating too omg ahah! It would bring memories right? I’d love to watch horror movies during Autumn but I’m waaay too sensitive and scared so quickly so that’s a no for me.
Thank you so much for this amazing chat, you’re so lovely! I hope It came out nicely.
Thank YOU for that, I was feeling a bit down right now so it kind of cheered me up a bit and you’re lovely, so That was really nice.
So that’s the whole chat, wow it’s a long one but who cares! I could talk about Autumn for hours really! See you all soon.
