And so the autumn content begins… and I couldn’t be happier! As much as I like the warm weather and bright blue skies of the summer months, golden leaves, cosy jumpers and crisp air have me living my best life.
This year, autumn is a little bit different. There’s a chance that everything might be a bit restricted, or completely shut down over night, but after the absolute travesty that was the last six months I want to make a real effort to enjoy the autumnal season as best I can, whilst still adhering to the guidelines of course. And, as I love spending this season outdoors, fingers crossed the global pandemic won’t get in the way too much.
So, to get myself into the spirit, I thought I’d write a little autumn bucket list for this year. Just a few things I want to do or see to get the most out of this time of year, and maybe some inspiration for you too!
Watch all the cosy autumnal films – I’m thinking You’ve Got Mail and every single Harry Potter film.
Enjoy fall inspired music – I’m looking at you Red and Folklore…
Take many walks in the park – There’s nothing I love more than the fresh air and crispy golden leaves crunching under my autumn boots at this time of year!
Go on a breezy beach trip – You can combat the cold sea air by wrapping up with fall toned scarf and even taking a blanket!
Go on some autumnal dates – A trip to a pumpkin batch or a sweet hot choc cafe date maybe?
Take a walk in the woods – Perfect for capturing autumn Instragram snaps and being surrounded by leaves in fiery shades of red, orange and yellow.
Go cosy jumper shopping – I love to add to my collection each year; I’m thinking of a burnt orange one this time round!
Have a Halloween film night – I’m not a big fan of horrors but there is definitely Halloween themed films that aren’t too scary – Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown!
Do some pumpkin carving – No matter how old I get, I always wanted to carve a pumpkin – I’m thinking of designs already!
Do some Autumn themed baking – I need to find some recipes! I’d love to make pumpkin cookies, or something toffee apple or cinnamon-esque.
Go to a scare experience – If they’re open! Although I don’t like horror films, I love a scare experience!
Visit a fall themed castle – Again, if they’re open! I know Warwick castle does a great Halloween themed event that I went to a few years ago.
Go to a Bonfire Night celebration – Fireworks displays are one of my most favourite parts of the autumn period. Hopefully we’ll be able to go to a socially distanced display this year.
What do you like do to during the autumnal period? Anything else I should add to my autumn bucket list this year?
