When it comes to making ourselves and those around us happy, we’re world experts here at Heyland & Whittle. Not only do we make beautiful products that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face, but we also know that it’s the little things that boost our mood and last long in the memory.
So, here’s some of the things that we’ll be enjoying this autumn:
Walking in the woods
Nothing beats a walk in the woods and during autumn that pleasure steps up a gear. There’s the dappled light that falls through the trees, the crunchy leaves underfoot and little treasures that nature leaves behind. It’s a fun activity collecting all these acorns and conkers up and then deciding what to do with them all when you get back home.
Back in the house, sit and relax after removing your wellies and outdoor clothes with the Clementine & Prosecco Gift Set. In here, you’ll find everything you need to ensure your home smells bright and fresh throughout the autumn months.
Watching the leaves on the trees change colour
Forget Netflix, the best show in town during autumn is the changing colours of the leaves on the trees. While we all know that they can be green and yellow and red, it’s all the different shades of intense auburn, vivid crimson, lemon-lime yellow and forest green that contrast with each other and ignite a special place in our memories.
It’s no secret that at Heyland & Whittle we love homemade cake, so pack a tin of cake and a flask of tea and go out in search of the best autumn leaves. Once you’ve found a good spot, you can warm your hands on the tea and enjoy the sweet cake while taking in all the colours.
Enjoying an unseasonably warm trip to the seaside
The weather is being particularly kind to us this September and we’re enjoying some unexpected warm days at the seaside. Even as the months creep on it’s worth keeping an eye on the weather forecast for those unseasonably warm days, as they will pop up and are the perfect time to head to the beach.
Tap into the Blue Mind benefits - the therapeutic effects of being near water. Let the sound of the waves relax you and enjoy looking out at the expanse of the sea. Fresh air and autumn sunshine will help to revive you, leaving you refreshed and ready to face anything.
Cooking from scratch
Nourishing our bodies is a basic requirement, but doing it in a mindful fashion can bring a huge amount of joy. There’s something ritualistic about carefully and systematically going through the different processes involved in a recipe, chopping, boiling and stirring up a meal to thoroughly enjoy. Take the time to select your ingredients and cook from scratch.
Whether you’re making an old family favourite or testing out a new recipe from your current most-loved cookery book, you don’t want the house to smell of onions and spices for the rest of the week. Use the Chef’s Friend Candle in a Tin to keep the house smelling fresh after creating your culinary masterpiece.
Wearing all the colours of the rainbow
Introducing a little bit of colour to your wardrobe has the ability to lift your spirits more than you might think. You don’t have to go out in an outfit that covers the entire spectrum in one go, but a pop off yellow in the form of a scarf will introduce a sunny outlook or a slick of red lipstick could brighten your day.
