For me, the first of September marks the start of Autumn, or at least the countdown to it. Crunchy leaves, cosy scarves and steaming hot chocolates are all I'm dreaming about at the moment and I've got lots to look forward to in the upcoming weeks. Here are five things I've added to my September to-do list:
Start Planning My Birthday | I don't turn 21 until early October, but that doesn't stop me from planning my birthday outfit and ideas for what I'm going to treat myself to. I'm thinking maybe a big ASOS haul is on the cards and I need to start looking into the new Autumn makeup releases too (The Lush Halloween collection is much anticipated!).
Try and Stay Organised | With a holiday in mid September, I'm hoping to get organised before I go again. It feels like I've just got back from Paris, so I really want to make sure I'm back in the swing of things. I need to start planning my posts seriously for the month ahead as I've been feeling a tad unmotivated.
Getting Excited For Autumn | With the mornings slowly becoming cooler and I've already spotted a few fallen, crisp leaves on the ground, I think it's safe to say that Autumn is just around the corner. I'm finally allowing myself to get excited for my favourite season by binge watching cosy TV shows, getting my dressing gown at the ready and splurging on a few new candles for the home too.
Find Some Conkers and Pine Cones | I really want to get back into my Autumnal walks once Tom's fractured ankle gets better. I'm on a mission to find a conker and at least one pine cone this September because I've already seen a few about. They make great Autumnal blog props too which is a bonus and I've always put them in a corner of a room to keep away spiders too.
Shop Some Transitional Pieces | I've added a wishlist page to my blog and if it doesn't enable you, then at least it's enabled me. I've been on the look out for some more transitional pieces that will carry me through the colder seasons. I've been trying to add more colour as I recently picked up this New Look Funday Jumper, but I've still got my eye on some monochrome and blush pink pieces especially. Here are some of the other items on my wishlist:
