10 Things To Do This Autumn

Autumn marks the start of crisp, chilly mornings, the browning of the leaves and practically all things cosy. October is my birthday month and is full of the excitement of Halloween, Bonfire Night and the start of the festivities. Autumn is hands down one of my favourite seasons, so today I am sharing with you some of the activities I want to do over the next couple of months. 

Go To A Pumpkin Patch | I never made it to a pumpkin patch last year due to timing, but this year I've made it my mission to locate one. Pumpkin carving is a fun activity to do over the Halloween period. Autumn runs from the 22nd September right through to the 20th December, so if you're not a fan of pumpkin picking, you can definitely pick your Christmas tree later in the year or go blackberry picking instead.

Switch Up Your Home Decor | Whether it's hang out a few decorations, incorporating leaves and Autumnal colours into the home through throws and ornaments or setting up your Christmas tree, Autumn always bring a change to my home decor. I am excited for carving pumpkins and decorating my new fireplace with lots of candles like this Zoella Lazy Days Candle.

Pick Up The New Lush Launches | Autumn is full of new launches, but the ones that are most anticipated in my household are the Lush Halloween and Christmas ones. Full of warm spices, pumpkin themed bath bombs and of course the Butter Bear, it definitely means I can treat myself to one or two!

Change Your Phone Wallpaper | Pinterest is ((((a god send))))) when it comes to Autumnal inspiration, full of home decor and photograph ideas, but it's actually the iPhone wallpaper backgrounds that I have been sourcing lately. I currently have been switching between a deer, leaf and pinecone offering and a cartoon pumpkin background to really get me in the mood. 

Buy New PJ's | I don't know whether it's the change of season or the fact that I am moving house, but I have had the sudden urge to get rid of all the items of clothes I no longer wear or are worn out. PJ's are the first items to go, so I have been eyeing up a few fresh sets like this ASOS Galactic Space Print Set. I have also been lusting after this ASOS Fluffy Bear Robe and these Cosy Christmas Footlets

Autumnal Cooking | I say this with every change of season, but eating seasonal fruit and vegetables are so important to me and I always make the effort to incorporate them into my cooking. Corn on the cob, cauliflower and carrots are all on the menu over the next couple of months, so I'm going to make it my mission to find some yummy recipes on Pinterest. Aside from nutritious and delicious meals, I have been eyeing up some tasty treats too like baking a haunted gingerbread house or whip up some pumpkin cupcakes

Find A New TV Show To Delve Into | Gilmore Girls, Merlin and Friends are three of my favourite TV programmes at the moment. They're perfect for drizzly days in or evenings when you just want to have something easy to watch. 

Go To A Firework Display | On the 5th of November I will be venturing out to find a firework display to go to. I am already visualising being wrapped up in my thick coat and scarf, drinking hot chocolate staring up at the array of colours in the sky. 

Take Lots of Autumnal Photographs | I touched upon this in a post a couple of days back; that I want to take more seasonal photographs for stock imaginary to use on my blogs. I can't wait to photograph a bright orange pumpkin patch, crisp leaves and capture the cold morning in photography form on a brisk walk to my nearest park. 

Buy More Candles | I've now bought a Bath and Body Works candle and there is no going back - I am obsessed. On the back of this obsession, I have been lusting after the Anthropologie Burnished Candle, a copper marble duo which would look dreamy as well as smell lovely. 

What would you like to do this Autumn?
