7 Things I Like To Do In Autumn

7 Things I Like To Do In Autumn
I cannot put into words how thrilled I am that it's finally Autumn! Crispy leaves, purple lipsticks, knitted socks, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice lattes and finally it is acceptable to start planning all of the festivities we have coming soon.

Here are some things I like to do that gets me in the mood for autumn

1. Bake: I like baking all year round but once autumn is here I like to bake lots of Halloween, Christmas treats. If you follow my Pinterest you will know how much I love re-pinning foodie treats to bake.

2. De-Clutter: Every season I like to give my room a little bit of a revamp just to keep it fresh and in season. I have started to get my coats and winter clothing on display, ditched the bright pink lipsticks and added a lot more fairylights around my room.

3. Stock Up: Every single time autumn/winter is here I will stock up on countless amounts of candles, thick socks and bath products. I have baths a lot more in the colder months so these are all essential for me to stock up on to keep warm and relaxed!

4. Go On Walks: I think it is important to try and keep active just as much in the colder months as well as summer. Going on walks to parks, kicking my feet through crisp brown leaves whilst sipping a pumpkin spice latte or walking through winter markets smitten over the little trinkets is always a hobby I enjoy to do.

5. Drink Chai Latte: Chai Latte is my favourite autumnal drink to order when I am in a coffee shop. The cinnamon spice and milky taste is like autumn/winter in a mug and the perfect drink to have during the colder months.

6. Write Lists: Since Autumn/winter is one of the busier times of the years for keeping on top of things I decided now is the time for a new notebook, any excuse. This notebook will be used for writing Christmas lists, birthdays and other festive occasions. You can purchase this marble notebook from Uniqfind* which if you love marble, ceramic designs you will love this site!

7. Relax: Even though this is simply the busiest time of the year I like to relax a bit more from now till January. All of the above are ways I like to relax that don't take much effort to do but make such a difference.

  26. Staying active is a good point. I tend to go to more fitness classes in winter but I don´t spend as much time actually outside. Maybe if the weather is being nice, I could go on a walk just to breathe in some fresh air and get a clear head.
