Why We Love September

September is one of our favourite months and here's why!



1. Refresh your Autumn wardrobe


September is the best month to say goodbye to summer staples and say hello to crisp layers, cozy socks and new pjs! We highly recommend Bon Marche for its range of staples to take you into the cooler months.

 

2. Eat Well



It's the season of root veg and spice! Our Sainsbury's local has all the ingredients to create a fantastic Autumn curry.

3. Support Local


There's nothing to beat the start of a new football or rugby season.. the optimism and excitement builds from the end of August and burst through in September. Milder evenings and afternoon games means outdoor events are really enjoyable; not too hot, not too cold and can be experienced with family and friends. The Newport County AFC store has had a brand refresh and is worth a visit in Kingsway Centre.


Stocking snug puffa jackets and hoodies, there's no excuse to be out in the cold this month. You can also pick up club tickets from here.


 

4. Start a new hobby


Forget the new year, September is the month to learn something new. Sewing and knitting have undergone a renaissance over the last few years (think Tom Daley and his awe inspiring Olympic knits!) with everyone having a go at making homemade gifts..


Danelle's Fabric & Haberdashery (run by Danielle herself pictured) starts stocking Christmas fabric and accessories in September and all her staff have oodles of experience to help you in your new found hobby. They're also expert knitters so if you've put off making a new baby blanket, Halloween outfit or even Christmas

stocking, you're in safe hands.


You'll find Danielle's opposite Newport County AFC, stones through from Wilko and Poundland.


 

5. Look after your skin



Don't quite ditch the sunscreen, your skin needs protection all year round!


We like September as it's the best time to assess your skincare routine, ensuring that your products are protecting you from Autumn winds and the onslaught of central heating.


For quality, high performance brands, we're loving Bodycare. Stocking go-to beauty brands such as Clarins, Elizabeth Arden, Olay and Decleor, there the number one choice for radiant skin.


So there we have it! Autumn never looked this good!
