10 things to do in autumn.

29th October, 2016
As many of you might know by now autumn is my favourite season, and the opposite for some, mainly because of the rainy and windy days. I love the magical look of our gardens and streets covered with golden, brown, red and yellow colours, long walks with my dog as well as evenings snuggled up in a warm blanket sipping on a hot tea with lemon and ginger!

Things to do in autumn.
1. Put your cooking skills to use. Whether you're the top chef or a beginner, why not try out a new receipt? Let the smell of a hot soup or pumpkin bread, to fill up the whole house. Yum!
2. New amazing instagram and blog photos. To me autumn is the best season for the most beautiful photography. Capture your street or town covered in all the shades of the Earth's warmest colours. :)
3. Movies day in with your loved ones. How I love staying in a warm bed on a rainy, windy day, watching tones of films cuddled up to my fiance. I personally love horrors and thrillers, but there's nothing better than a romantic comedy on an autumn day!
4. Learn something new. It can be really satisfying learning something new or just making a project goal and watching it come to life. I've already picked leaves which I've placed inside a book, once they have fully dried I will use them in one of my DIY projects!
5. Get into scrap booking. Make a goal to finish up your album for the year or in my case, my pregnancy diary! Print out all your favourite photos from your life and stick them in your album. You can even get your family or friends involved, this is the perfect bonding activity!
6. Feed the squirrels and birds. This must be the greatest autumn activity to me. I don't know about you but I'm obsessed with animals! Head to the woods with the kids or friends and a bag of nuts or bread to try and seek out some hungry squirrels and help them fill up their nut stores for the winter. :)
7. Go for a walk. Take your dog, a friend, mum or dad or even just go on your own! Take a long walk on a cloudy November day, pick up some leaves to take home and make a beautiful decoration out of them. There's so many different inspirations all over the internet.
8. Autumn online shopping. If you don't feel like leaving your house to go to the mall, why not just go for the easier option and make some online shopping. New thick wool socks - can never have too many of them, and a warm knitted sweater - is a must! And don't forget about your pets if you have any, they want to keep warm too this autumn.
9. Host a firework dress up party. Isn't this an amazing idea? Especially for those who have missed Halloween and/or Bonfire Night because of work or what ever reason. Host a firework party at your house where everyone has to dress up just as it was Halloween.
10. Write an early letter to Santa Claus. Why wait until the last minute, think of the things that you want the most this Christmas and sneak them in your partner's or parent's wallet so they can't miss it! Make a list of the gifts that you also want to get for your loved ones.
