28 Things I Want To Do This Autumn

1. Chop my hair off. This one I have already done after months and months of eagerly waiting, it’s becoming a little autumn tradition.

2. Buy a new coat. I’m feeling a red one this year, there is one in Primark I have my eye on, as soon as they have it in my size it’s mine. 

3. Go to a farm and pick up a pumpkin. Every year my Instagram is filled with pretty pictures of people pumpkin picking and I want to join in the fun. And yes, partly just to do a cute autumn shoot!

4. After I’ve picked a few I also want to carve a few. I tried my hand at it a few years ago and it was big messy fun.

5. Watch some really scary movies. I’m thinking some oldies like Silence of the Lambs, Jeepers Creepers and Carrie. But also some new ones like It and Mother. Now I just need to find someone to watch them with as the boyfriend is a big old scaredy cat.

6. Got to a bonfire for Guy Fawkes night. This is one of my most favourite traditions of the whole year and I never miss it!

7. Collect some conkers and play a game. If I still remember how to, I might have to look this one up.

8. Go pick up some new scarves, hats and gloves. I cannot resist the £5 scarves in Primark which is probably why I have about a dozen! I’m gonna need a wardrobe just for my scarves after this year is up!

9. Cook a few batches of homemade soup. It’s fun, it’s healthy and I feel like a super chef for doing it, even though it’s just chucking a few ingredients into a blender.

10. Kick a big piles of leaves, then quickly look around to see if there’s anyone watching a grown adult kick a pile of leaves.

11. Also stand on some crunchy leaves. SO SATISFYING!!!

12. Spend lots of guilt free nights staying in watching movies. Bonus points if it’s chucking it down outside.

13. Make lots of hot chocolate. I got given a good hot chocolate recipe book for Christmas last year and I’m dying to try a few of them out!

14. Buy all of the autumnal homeware. The boyfriend thinks we have enough, he’s wrong. Mini ornamental pumpkins and lanterns everywhere!

15. Create a den. Who didn’t love creating dens when they were younger? Except this time I’ll do it up more jazzy with some fairy lights and maybe some wine.

16. Get all wrapped up and go on a long walk in the countryside, and take lots more autumnal pics for insta! Lucky for me I live in a village with plenty of big parks to choose from.

17. Eat a pub meal. I love big hearty meals during autumn and the windows are all steamed up cos it’s so chilly outside but toasty warm inside, making a bit of a magical atmosphere.

18. Pick up a new scented candle. I’m going Yankee this year, I’ve picked up too many cheaper alternatives that smell good but after you light them they don’t smell out the whole room like I’d hoped. Yankee always delivers, but any suggestions for others welcome please?

19. Play some board games. I have an unused box of scrabble, I’m awful, I know! I also want to pick up Cluedo and Monopoly. Have you actually tried to buy a board game yourself though? They’re so bloody expensive!

20. Wear all of my thick jumpers again. I just packed up a bunch of summer dresses and pulled out all of my jumpers I forgot I had. I have a small wardrobe right now so it’s one season at a time!

21. While we’re on it, top up my autumn wardrobe. I have been waiting and waiting for the AW17 collections to hit the shops, I’m so excited to buy all things yellow, red and orange.

21. Buy some autumn scented air freshness and diffusers, bring on the pumpkin and cinnamon.

22. Pick up some new cosy blankets to snuggle up under. It seems like every shop out there is stepping up it’s homeware game. I was in H&M the other day and I saw 3 blankets that I just have to have.

23. Do a bit of boot shopping. I have already picked up a lovely new pair of dark maroon ankle boots, but a girl can never have too many boots right?

24. Is it too early to say it? It might be, but I have already started doing a bit of christmas shopping. You need to get in there early to miss the rush and spread the cost!

25. Learn to knit. I would absolutely love a Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf but they cost like £35 from the official shops!! That’s way too much for a scarf so I’m gonna learn to knit my own! Or at least try to.

26. There are so many cute autumn DIY projects on pinterest and I will also be trying these. They never turn out they way they look in the pics though.

27. Get some autumnal make up and beauty products. I’m thinking smokey eyeshadow pallets, dark lipstick and red nail varnish.

28. Get all dressed up for halloween. Do I do the easy but classic and cute cat, something really creepy or something hilariously punny. Either way it’s gonna be fricking fun, I just love halloween!!!

So those are the things I cannot wait to tick off this Autumn. It really is my fave season! What things are you looking forward to doing this Autumn?


  1. Candlewise, check out Kringle Candle! They're kind of an offshoot/rival(?) of Yankee and I adore them. They're US based but I think they do international shipping.

    And yes to all of this! My plans for this autumn are looking very similar.

    1. Ah thanks for the heads up, I will check them out ☺️Xx

  2. Lovely post! I really want to learn how to knit. x
