I put the monthly to-do lists on hold over the last few months as I felt like most of this year merged into one, but now they're back! Today is the 1st September, Autumn is in the air, the pumpkin spiced lattes are nearly upon us and so is the everything I love about the new season. I've got a lot planned over the next 30 days and I thought I would share them with you.
Get Baking! | I really enjoyed baking throughout lockdown, turning my hand to baguettes, loaves of bread and lots of cake, but this Autumn I want to start making soups and pies too. I'm starting off with mini apple pies, slowly working my way up to more savoury bakes as well as delving into different concoctions for stews and soups.
Find Some Autumn Gems | I started to see browning leaves and pine cones a few weeks back, but it's when the conkers start to fall that's when I get really excited. Although I'm sure it'll be a little while yet, just having the vision of the orange leaves and pumpkins coming into the shops in my mind is enough to get me super excited for the new season.
Plan Outfits + Locations | There's something about Autumn that makes me feel inspired to create all the content and this year I'm not holding back. I've got lots of outfits planned to share and I'm hoping to get to some interesting local locations this year as well. I've got my birthday in the first week of October, so I like to make sure that I have something pre-planned for that to celebrate - so I need to get thinking!
Stay In A Good Exercise Routine | I've actually been sticking to a really good exercise routine over the last six months, taking regular walks and bike rides outside as well as doing HIIT, circuits and kickboxing classes a few times a week on top of it. It's helped me stay in a more positive mindset and keep me active, so although it can be a little harder to keep it up when the weather gets colder, I want to make an effort to keep in this good routine.
Seek Out Some New-In Pieces | From the latest beauty releases to the new fashion, I want to keep an eye out for what is new this season. I personally enjoy chunky knits and coats coming into shops, but I also know that Lush's Halloween range will be out super soon!
What's on your September to-do list?
