The College Girl's Ultimate Autumn/Winter Checklist

Summer's over gals. Get ready for the comfort zone.

A Good Pair Of Boots


You might not need them now but you will need them. Need. Mid calf, knee high, over the knee - whatever you decide, make sure you invest in a good pair. These babies are gona see rain hail and possibly snow, they need to be good quality and durable.

A Wooly Jumper


For obvious reasons. Also, the right one can actually look great. Get your Granny busy knitting. Come on nan, hurry the fuck up now.


A New Season To Get Stuck Into


Netflix. The best boyfriend ever. Autumn and Winter are the times that you can binge watch shit and not really feel that bad about it. Pretty Little Liars, Orange Is The New Black, American Horror Story, The Killing... the list in endless. No excuse now - get under those covers and get to work.

A Cuddling Partner



Yes, a boyfriend would be ideal for the winter months but if you can't bag yourself one of those, just find someone who will come over over for movies. preferably male (if you're that way inclined) and share that couch with possible hair stroking and even hand holding. Okay, well maybe not hand holding but they could at least let you into the nook.

Your Own Umbrella


Stop borrowing your Dads golf umbrella and go out and buy yourself one. They're not expensive and you can get one in any colour you want. That's right, you heard me; Any. Colour. You. Want.

Some Skin Altering Products



Yeah yeah, pale bitches look flawless and fresh and pure. Fuck that. The lack of Vitamin D isn't a good look for anyone. Even people with sallow skin go a weird wishy washy colour and pale people just go a blueish grey. Do yourself a favour and pick up some facial fake tan or even just tinted moisturiser. It'll mean that in the Summer when you're looking back at winter photos you won't go "By Christ was I really that pale? Sick"



Yeah, we know you're not a granny but that doesn't mean you can't feel like you're in heaven by purchasing some super comfy slippers. Seriously, don't even worry about how they look, because on that Sunday when you're hungover to fuck, you're gona slip into those puppies and have a foot orgasm. It'll look like this.




Go on, treat yourself. Fuck the t-shirt and tracksuit bottoms, pyjamas are made from a magical material that will remind you of being a kid and getting out of the bath and being dressed in pyjamas while you have a hot chocolate before bed. That unparalleled safe feeling of sitting by the fire while your parents watch Frasier or something. So comforting.




Yup, it's glove season again. You'll probably lose them so buy cheap and easy, like your sister.

A New Playlist


Summer's over gals, no more Milky Chance and Klingande, it's time for Winter music. No, that doesn't have to be depressing, you just can't still be listening to Len - Steal My Sunshine, because that would be weird. It came out like 15 years ago you loser.

A hot water bottle



Like a very miniature boyfriend you can spoon at night that won't talk back. Perfect.



Because fuck it, why not get fat in the winter.




Buy all the socks. Seriously, just buy so many socks. And not those crappy thin ones that get holes in the toes, get some manly socks. Thick ones with massage comfort. Winter is all about extreme comfort. Socks are where it's at.

A Blanket


Lying on the couch watching Netflix is nice. Lying on the couch watching Netflix under a blanket is fucking euphoric.
