My autumn decorations

School is started again, the leaves are slowly turning orange, the weather is getting colder... Jup it's definitely autumn again. Even though it's getting colder, the beginning of autumn is still one of my favourite times of the year (also because my birthday is in the beginning of October!)  When autumn starts I like to put some autumn decorations in my bedroom to give me that lovely cozy autumn feeling.

I haven't spend much on these items, most of them are form Xenos (a shop in the Netherlands and in Germany). The green tin candle is from Primark and has fresh citrus & ginger scent, which I love! The white pillow with the leaves on it is from Ikea, and my hat is from Zara. :)

Around this time of year, I drink tea more often, especially cinnamon flavoured tea. I also love these cinnamon candy sticks. I have a super soft blanked on my bed which I like to wrap myself in when I'm watching a movie or something. I also like to have lots of candles in my room. 

When I was younger my grandma always gave me some chestnuts around autumn. She told me if I kept one in my pocket it will bring me luck and nothing bad would happen to me. When I was younger I used to have really bad panic attacks so I always kept one in my pocket. My grandma also died in autumn, 4 years ago. One of the last things she said to me was "Try to find the biggest chestnuts, they bring the most luck". Luckily I don't have these panic attacks anymore but around autumn I always collect some of the biggest chestnuts that I can find. This year I have put them all together in a cute little bowl as you can see on some photo's above.

Hope you like these decorations! If you have any questions about these items just let me know :)
