The days have been gradually getting shorter, the air is cooler, the garden is winding down, and we’re back into the rhythm of our daily lives. Have you noticed all the wonderful colour changes? Deciduous trees have turned brilliant hues of yellow, gold and hot orange set against bright blue skies.
As Autumn comes to an end, take this opportunity to check-in on your year so far. Here are some of our favourite thoughts and activities to end the season.
Recent nation-wide events have helped remind us of the importance of being there for each-other and the strength in coming together as a community.
Even if it is just remembering to check-in with those around you; your neighbours, friends, family etc. They may not show it, but everyone needs a little support sometimes.
Have you prepared your wardrobe for the colder months? Autumn is a season of transitions, both in nature and in your wardrobe, so it’s the perfect time to get ready for the winter months.

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.
When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug. If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.
To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.
Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.
Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.
Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.
Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
