View The Change In Season

Other than the sudden chill in the air and the oh-so obvious darkness in the mornings, the trees are starting to change colour and lose their leaves! From bright and vibrant green to beautiful, deep and rich shades of brown, auburn, red and orange, the city it transforming into an autumn wonderland! And what better place to view this seasonal change than by visiting one of the city's parks and taking a leisurely stroll through the leaves? Don't forget to take your phone along with you to snap a few shots for Instagram! A few parks to definitely visit during this season is the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens and the Water Sisulu Botanical Gardens.

Declutter Your Wardrobe & Space

A change in season means a change in wardrobe. This is the perfect time to start packing away all those summer shorts, flowy sundresses and sandals and replace them with warm jerseys, bulky jackets and stylish boots. But while you do the wardrobe switch up, why sort through all your clothes and donate the items you no long want to the less fortunate? Not only will you be doing something kind but you'll also be making room for new seasonal fashion must-haves! We all know how cold our city can get during the chillier months, so why not do something nice and donate your old clothes and other pre-loved items you no longer need or use.

Pamper Yourself 

Now, just because you will be wearing cozy boots doesn't mean it's time to neglect the toes and not enjoy a well-deserved pedi! Any season is the right time to have a spoil and get your toes done so that they look amazing when they do come out of those new fashionable boots you bought for the upcoming chilly season. And not to worry, you don't need to bust the bank to enjoy beautiful toes! Here's a few spots in Johannesburg where you can get a pedicure for under R350!

Start Prepping Your Garden

Although we are embracing the new season and everything that comes along with it right now, there's no harm in planning and thinking ahead, especially when it comes to our gardens! It's tome to start prepping your garden for spring! To get your started and to get the best advice on what to plant when and where in your garden, visit one of the city's plant nurseries and garden centres. One garden centre we highly recommend you visit is Lifestyle Home Garden Centre in Randpark Ridge. Not only will they have plenty of inspiration for your garden, but they're also currently hosting their 2021 Lifestyle Garden Design Show.

Make Your Home Cozy

A change is as good as a holiday, so put away all of those brightly coloured scatter cushions and vibrant decor and replace them with items with a more autumn colour palette and feel. Think soft rugs on bare floors, throws over couches to cuddle in when the evenings get colder, and perhaps a little heater in the corner of your living room. But if you're looking to save on electricity during the colder months (because let's face it, we use more electricity to keep us warm during winter, resulting in sky high electric bills), then here are a few tips and easy changes to keep you warm without the heater this winter. Be sure to visit your nearest homeware stores to shop for some chilly night essentials!

Visit Joburg's Top Markets

Before the cold hits, why not enjoy the cool yet still warmer days of autumn by visiting one of the city's top markets? Not only will you get to enjoy the fresh autumn air and enjoy the scenery, but you'll also just to shop for some lovely, locally made items, tuck into some delicious season treats and even get a few steps in along the way as your wander through all of the stores. This makes for a lovely autumn day out and about in the city. We suggest a trip to the Fourways Farmers Market at Modderfontein Reserve, just 10km from Sandton.

Why Not Start A New Hobby? 

Since you will be spending a little more time indoors as the seasons change and the weather gets chillier, why not pick up on a brand-new hobby to do in the comfort of your own home? This one isn't only fun but it'll most definitely keep you warm! If you don't know how to knit, now is the chance to learn! You can make your own scarf, beanie, quilted blanket, and if you become a knitting master, even a few jerseys for you and your loved ones! Here's where you can get started on your winter knitting journey. Trust us, it's easy to start!

Catch A Movie!

A new month means there's a bunch of new movie releases at a cinema near you! So, what are you waiting for? Head to your nearest cinema, buy some snacks and a ticket to a movie of your choice and enjoy! No matter what you're in the mood for, be it something hilarious that'll leave you laughing yourself silly or something for the entire family to enjoy, you're bound to find the right movie at the cinema. Wondering what's on the big screen this April? Click here to see what films will be released throughout April 2021.

How About An Indulgent Treat?

We don't know about you, but when the colder months arrive, we're always on the hunt for something decadent and indulgent to make us feel all warm and good on the inside! A great place to start, is by visiting 27 Boxes and heading straight to X&O Patisserie for amazing cronuts that'll most definitely hit the spot! Another must-visit for sweet delights is L’atelier Bakery in Rosebank if you're looking for a taste of Paris in the heart of Joburg (their rich and oh-so decadent Chocolate Tart is a must with some coffee). And of course, let's not forget to mention the beloved Belle's Patisserie for a slice of their iconic Rainbow Cake!

Autumn is officially here, which means it is time for new and exciting trends. The colder season is bringing beautiful and colourful trends to look forward to.

Make It Your Own

When it comes to style, it's always great to make fashion your own. This helps you feel comfortable and allows you to enjoy what you are wearing without any self-doubt.

Fashion is what you make it, don't be afraid to be expressive and creative.

Be Bold

Being bold doesn't mean going to extreme lengths, just try something that you have never tried before.

Here are three things to try and where to get them:

Something Boho Chic From Habiba

Habiba specialises in boho and belly-dancing clothing. If you are looking for a wide range of patterns and colours, then Habiba is definitely the place for you.

Lindy Tennant, owner of Habiba, has a soft spot for boho styles and has travelled throughout Egypt to bring you the most unique and daring pieces.

This boutique is situated in Cape Town, but has an online purchase option.

Check out more boho chic fashion statements here.

Sportsmans Warehouse

A Warm Jacket From Cape Union Mart

A jacket is vitally important when the weather starts cooling down. Jackets are easy to match with almost any outfit.

Cape Union Mart has many trending jackets this autumn and winter - especially over-sized jackets.

The perk about shopping at Cape Union Mart is that you can get all the clothing you need under one roof.

Find the perfect jacket here.

Tsonga

Shoes From Tsonga South Africa

Tsonga South Africa is inspired by Africa. They have some of the most beautiful shoes that are high quality and long lasting.

This winter, invest in a pair of their stylish leather boots that will last years to come.

Check out more on winter shopping here.

Document The Change In Season

If you didn't snap it, it didn't happen. So, get in the habit of documenting your city at every opportunity possible. Two of our favourite ways of doing this, aside from writing, are through photography and videography. Whether you're waking up before the break of dawn to explore the city and capture the change of autumn leaves or grabbing an afternoon walk with your four-legged bestie, it's bound to be a fun and revitalising experience.

Declutter Your Wardrobe 

A change in season means a change in wardrobe. This is the perfect time to start packing away all those summer shorts and vests and replace them with warm jerseys and thick leggings. But while you do the wardrobe switch up, why not put aside some clothes to donate to the less fortunate? We all know how cold our city can get, so do something nice and donate your old clothes and other items you no longer need or use.

Pamper Yourself 

With all the fabulous beauty salons and spas in our city, knowing which one to go to without breaking the bank can be tricky. But what if we told you, you could get a manicure or pedicure for under R350? Sounds crazy right? And yet it's so true. Plus, there's something for the lads as well, with these grooming spots for guys.

Start Prepping Your Garden

Sure it's autumn and while we embrace everything great about it, we can also start thinking ahead. Start prepping your autumn garden for spring. Think about it, getting in touch with nature when it's cool and not too cold yet, seeing the beautiful flowers and plants sprout in autumn and winter then bloom and blossom in spring. Sounds amazing doesn't it? We think so, too.

Get The Autumn Look In Your Home

Why not incorporate the look and feel of autumn into your home? Whether you want to enhance the homey feeling using autumn hues or simply enjoy switching up your furniture and decor at the change of the season, we are giving you the 411 on how to spruce up your home.

Visit Joburg's Top Markets

We all know it's not fun to be out in the cold, so embrace the cool weather at some great markets before winter arrives. Whether you want to visit some awesome food markets around town, are more interested in markets to visit on weekends, want to take your pooch along on a shopping trip or just want to explore the top markets in the city, there's a market for you to explore before staying at home is all you want to do.

Neighbourgoods Market

Go Out And Be Merry

Whether you enjoy watching sunsets or the occasional drink after hours, check out these great rooftop bars in the city. What's better than enjoying our lovely Joburg sunset with a drink in hand on a cool autumn late afternoon/ evening? Alternatively, you can just skip the sunset and grab a cocktail at one of these fabulous cocktail spots.

Stay In And Stay Warm

There's also absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to stay in and stay warm as soon as those leaves start changing colours. You can stay in and make some hot chocolate and maybe you could start a new hobby. If you have little ones, stay in with a book or two from these children’s bookshops.

Any Season Is Ice Cream Season

Every season is a good season for ice cream! This autumn, spice up your ice cream with these nifty tips and tricks. But if you feel like braving the chilly weather, make a quick ice cream run to one of these top ice cream spots!

Catch A Movie Or Two With The Kids

Why not spend the day out with the kids? There are a number of amazing movies showing at cinema. So, grab the kids, grab some warm butter popcorn and a few slushies and enjoy a few hours of good fun. With everything from animation and action to romance and comedy, you'll definitely be feeling warm and fuzzy.

A Hug From A Cup Of Tea

There is no denying the health benefits of tea and how amazing one cup can make you feel. So, while you are staying warm and staying in, why don't you get these teas to help you relax and prepare for the upcoming flu season?

How About A Brownie?

A brownie a day, keeps the frownies away. There is nothing better to keep away the autumn chill than a warm, fudgey brownie. We went on a hunt for the top brownie spots in the city and found some delicious mouthwatering brownies for the ultimate indulgence.

Autumn

If you love warm tones of burnt orange, yellow hues, deep reds and golden accents, then autumn is the perfect season to have your wedding. The warmth of the colours of the turning leaves and the soft sunshine will result in striking photographs.

The temperatures are moderate with warm afternoons and cooler evenings. However, if you're not a fan of cool weather or early sunsets, you'll need to push to have an earlier ceremony. Some autumn nights can get surprisingly chilly enough to require blankets and heaters — this would need to be included in your budget. Luckily, venues around the city do offer fireplaces.

autumn wedding

Winter

Winter has its own kind of romance and the option of more dramatic outfits. With the cold, think a long-sleeved wedding dress, in cream velvet perhaps, a cosy venue with a fireplace and comfort food.

A great bonus with winter weddings is that it's much easier to secure a venue as the warmer seasons tend to be more popular. A little birdie tells us some venues and suppliers offer off-season/winter specials, so you can save on the venue and splurge on something else. But if you don't like the idea of a mostly indoor wedding and grey skies then it's best to avoid a winter wedding.

Spring

With a spring wedding, you know there won't be a shortage of beautiful multicoloured flowers for your bouquet and for the tables, and warm temperatures, perfect for a sleeveless wedding gown.

With spring you also get pre-season deals on wedding venues and some suppliers will still be offering off-season rates and continuing their winter deals. So you miss the gloomy weather and still spring into your marriage with some nifty savings. But there could be unpredictable rain, so be prepared with an indoor backup plan if you intend having the ceremony outside.

Summer

The summer season is the most popular as people love high temperatures and bright sunshine. Guests are likely to arrive in party mode and ready to celebrate your love and future together. Our summer is also near the festive season so you could even plan a wedding away or during the week – whichever suits you best.

The downside to summer weddings is that you have to book your venue way in advance. Also, the summer heat is not ideal for everyone so your budget must include ways to keep your guests cool and comfortable. Being peak season, keep an eye on your budget – everything is pricer and you don't want to start your marriage on a broke note.

So that's our input about the seasons and now all that's left is to wish you a beautiful wedding day and many wonderful years of marriage!
