Autumn Favourites 2016

Hi friends, it’s been a while hasn’t it? You are probably wondering where I disappeared to over the past couple of weeks! A couple of weeks ago I was on a school camp where we had no access to Wi-Fi or a signal which was hard but a really nice break from the social world:) This week has been literally filled with exams and for that I apologise deeply! I will try my best to get back on track with my posts and I want to thank you all so much for your everlasting patience and constant support<3

As I haven’t done one of these in a while, I thought I would share some of the things I have been loving this season! Let me know your thoughts in the comments and I would love to hear what you all have been into! Here we go!


The last few months have been amazing when it comes to music with so many new albums coming out and so many people kicking off their tours! From Drake to Beyoncé to Calvin Harris, the hits have just kept on coming and sometimes, it’s just too much to handle! Besides all the awesome new music, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Beyoncé have kicked off their world tours and I couldn’t be more excited! So without further ado, here’s the rundown…

  1. ‘One Dance’ by Drake, Wizkid and Kyla.

I honestly cannot get enough of this song… it’s just so catchy and makes you want to dance every time it plays!

  1. ‘Never Be Like You’ by Flume and Kai

This song is literally been stuck in my head for the past month and I can’t help it at all! It’s just so catchy and it’s nice to hear a song that has a deeper meaning than most that you hear on the radio today. Ahhh…just so good…

  1. ‘Hypnotic’ by Zella Day

Ok, I know this is a little bit of a throwback but I recently discovered this song from a friend and I’m kind of obsessed… The first time I had heard Zella Day was on the ‘Insurgent’ soundtrack but I didn’t really look into her music until now, and I’m so glad I did!


I’m kind of hating on myself for the lack of books I’ve read this season, but I’ve really had no time! So, instead of my seasonal favourites, here are the books that I hope to read in the near future:)

  1. ‘The Finisher’ by David Baldacci
  2. ‘Cat ‘o’ Nine Tales’ by Jeffrey Archer
  3. ‘Looking for Alaska’ by John Green
  4. ‘Damage Done’ by Amanda Panitch



Here are just some of the random things I’ve been loving this season:)

151397-L-LOAcoustic Guitar

Ok, my guitar has got to be the most exciting thing I purchased this season and I am absolutely in love with it! It’s a Monterey Acoustic, which is a very basic acoustic guitar that is perfect for beginners like myself!


Once Upon A Time

onceuponatime_season5_poster1Many of you may not know, but I absolutely love this show, which I was introduced to early last year! Season 5 wrapped up a couple weeks back and it was probably one of my favourite seasons yet! I absolutely can’t wait for the next season, which will premiere later this year:)



50136193-2-lowresNow that it is finally getting cooler again, I have  wasted no time in
lighting my favourite candles again! I absolutely adore candles and my room constantly smells of something  different everyday, which I absolutely love!


Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Ok, I love Reese’s all year round but I have just been addicted to them over the past couple of 05980l36651months! They’re just the perfect mix of salty and sweet and the way they melt in your mouth is simply divine:)


There you have it! My Autumn Favourites for 2016:) Let me know what you have been loving this season and what you’re excited to try out!

I’ll be getting on top of my posts and I’ll see you all very soon<3

Signing off,

Shreya xx

    HEEEEYYYY I love “One Dance” too! I know a lot of the words, which is quite surprising, considering I almost never listen to that kind of music.
    Looking for Alaska….that book wrecked me. AGGHHH.
    Also, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are life. ’nuff said.

        I love you too <3! Looking for Alaska really is quite depressing, though mostly at the end… I won't say what happens :).
        Also you already know me… I just started a new website but you knew me from my old blog,!
