Firstly, happy Friday! I don’t know if it’s just me, but lately I feel like I’ve been lacking inspiration as my current work project comes to a close. My days are spent either working, sleeping or trying to fit in a workout, but during my lunch break yesterday, I took some time to browse through some of my favorite blogs. I came across The Everygirl 2017 Fall Bucket List, and the article got me excited about the coming season. I’d almost forgotten about the other fun things to do, and thought there was only Thanksgiving and Halloween to be excited about, but there is so much more!
THE 2017 AUTUMN BUCKET LIST
Attend a football game
I still haven’t been to a Football game yet, but would love to this year.
Decorate for Autumn
Visit a pumpkin patch
Make your Halloween costume
Every year my Halloween costumes have been rushed. I really admired a friend who made her and her boyfriends costumes a few years ago and they both looked amazing! It might be time to dust off my sewing machine and get the buttons and sequins out.
Go apple picking
Picking fruit from the gardens and fields on the Isle of Wight was a regular occurrence. My Nan still makes treats and dinners with her homegrown fruit and vegetables. I’d love to go apple picking and make a crumble or pie.
Host a bonfire with s’mores
This would help if you have somewhere to start a bonfire of course, but for those of us living in a city, fear not, as Amazon have a special smore making device here!
Update your fall fashion
This is something that’s been very big on my list lately, and you’ll start to see some more fall looks popping up on my Instagram.
Host a scary movie night
Some of my favorite Halloween movies would be; Hocus Pocus, Practical Magic, The Adams Family, Edward Scissor Hands, and anything Harry Potter Related.
Learn to cook a new warm hearty soup
Send Thanksgiving notes to friends and family
Bake a pie from scratch
If you’re going apple picking, and visiting a pumpkin patch it only makes sense to turn your newly acquired fruit / veg into a delicious pie.
Take a scenic drive for some ‘leaf peeping’
Attend a harvest festival
Hike in a forest preserve or park
I felt like The Everygirl’s Bucket List was missing a key event and that might be because I’m totally obsessed by this idea, and that’s having an Autumn inspired picnic in a leafy park. Just because the summer is going, it doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy the beach or park.
