10 Things To Do This Autumn

Autumn leaves
How is it October? More to the point, how are we a week into October? I genuinely feel like this year is flying by faster than any before and I can't believe I caught myself looking at Christmas baubles earlier. This year, I thought I'd make the most of the autumn/fall season so I've compiled a list of 10 things I want to do.

1. Carve Pumpkins - I've only started doing this in recent years but I absolutely love it. Sure, it's a tonne of work, incredibly messy and emotionally draining (Am I selling this yet?) but the end result is brilliant.

2. Buy Bath Goodies - Can we all take a moment to appreciate Lush's new collection? I love that it's Halloween themed and I'm happy that the Christmas goodies have started coming out. Queue bath season.

3. Burn Candles - Need I say more? I'm all about the tobacco candles for this season, I love their rich smell and can't get enough of them on these colder nights.

4. Wear Cosy Jumpers - Naturally none of the jumpers from last year fit me now so I've placed a tiny order with Very. I'm feeling mustard yellow and green.

5. Go to a good pub - Cosy by the fire style after a delicious Sunday roast. Are you feeling me yet?

6. Plan your social calendar - Halloween parties, sleepovers, bonfires, you name it get them all pencilled in with your best pals.

7. Go For Walks - We all know how beautiful the sunshine and leaves are in Autumn. Let's get out and see them instead of liking them on Instagram.

8. Cook Hearty Meals - Sunday roasts, juicy steaks, bowls of chilli and most definitely a good stew. I love eating meals like this in the colder months.

9. Read a book - Sometimes I actually forget about reading. With all of the content available on the internet these days, picking up a book is not something I think of doing - but I want to. I'm determined to read a couple of books over this season. Let me know what you recommend!

10. Blog More - For me, sometimes the cold weather can be unbearable so what better excuse to blog more. Think of all of those autumnal themed posts. I can almost see it now.

There you have it, a list of 10 things I want to do this autumn - I'll let you know how many I tick off.

What’s on your list? Let me know!



  1. This is a great list! Pumpkin carving is definitely on my list too. As well as lots of long walks

    1. I put it on the list expecting to have done it by now but I'm losing motivation. I love long walks with lots of leaves and sunshine 🍁☀️ X

  2. I imagine living in the middle of fields would make for good walks huh? I love the cozy jumpers and the candle lighting. Finally, I live in a place where I can light candles in my room! I did a post similar called "What I Love About Autumn." I want to make a video as well but I need help filming and a location lol

    1. Definitely, there's fields and woods everywhere! I love it. Candles are great and definitely make everything feel super cosy. I'll definitely check out your post, let me know if you end up filming a video! X
