My life is one big assignment at the moment. My second year of university has been pretty good so far but it has also been eating up my blog posting time, along with my sleep time. Thankfully, I've just got an hour of university left this week so I'll be embracing the free time whilst I have it! I'm currently cosied on my bed, watching the rain fall on all the poor souls outside, so I thought it'd be the right time to share my latest list with you all. Today I'm sharing my 50 things to do this autumn/fall period. 

Autumn, for me, is all about attempting to go into hibernation, treating myself to lots of comfort food and embracing time with my loved ones. It's also about abusing our Lovefilm subscription, moaning about university deadlines and braving the buckets of rain! Despite being a summer baby, I have quite an affinity for Autumn, it perfectly illustrates my character: cosy, laidback and a little bit pissy. Luke and I are heading back home next weekend for his 21st birthday and for plenty of cuddles with little Woody bear; it feels so strange to think that Luke will be 21 when I can still remember celebrating his 18th! Life really does fly by! Anyway, enough of my sentimental rambling - here's my list of things to do this autumn. Enjoy!


 Duvet, hot chocolate/tea/coffee/milk, Dexter seasons 1-6
♥ Paint your nails a deep berry tone
♥ Head out for bonfire night: breathe in the bonfire smoke, coo at the fireworks and eat take out food
 Alternatively: hold your own firework show, wrap up warm and serve jacket potatoes from the oven
♥ Bake 
♥ Treat yourself to the ultimate bubble bath 
♥ Take lots of walks in the leaf blanketed woodlands 
 Prepare yourself for the possible outbreak of snow - check your hat, scarf and mitten collection
♥ Make your own fresh face mask  
♥ Go fruit picking amongst the brambles and apple trees
♥ Experiment with different types of tea
 Survey your/the local horse chestnut trees for conkers
 Send out 5 penpal letters noting your plans this autumn
 Go to the theatre and book the good seats, for a change
 Wear your 'big' pants 
♥ Watch a classic film/read a classic book that you've not seen/read before 
 Learn how to make the ultimate roast dinner - keep perfecting it weekly!
 Embrace the produce that Autumn has to offer. Overload on root veggies and fruits.
 Throw out all your holey tights and invest in new ones - heavy derniers very welcome!
 Purchase some good reads and enjoy them by the fire/radiator/under the duvet
 Knit something for someone else. Note to self: learn to knit!
 Learn to knit or crochet!
♥ Make some preserves - these could be little favours for friends
 Make a big batch of soup - pour yourself a big bowl and freeze the rest
♥ Write

 Start an autumnal playlist. Here's one song to start it off: Home

 Feast! Make comforting food, invite friends over and watch it disappear 
 Carve a pumpkin
 Dedicate a couple of autumnal Sundays to country pubs, yorkshire puddings and dog walking
 Surprise someone with a morning coffee and breakfast in bed 
 Get re-aquainted with your blanket and fleecey PJ bottoms
 Watch 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' and sing along, loudly
 Find your perfect backpack 
 Brew something - a mulled wine, warming cider or a coffee with a twist
 Get comfy but don't stagnate. Do something that is out of your comfort zone!
 Prepare an autumnal care package for your cupboard - it must include flu-fighting remedies, the perfect autumnal lipstick and a letter writing set, for those days where you really don't want to leave the house!
 Live in your slippers/slipper boots
 Keep the sweet jar stocked, in case of emergencies/autumn weepies
 Purchase a couple of disposable cameras and document the arrival of autumn
 Dust off your slow cooker/crock pot and fill it with stew-y goodness
 Tend to your veggie patch. Not got one? Start considering one now!
 Lie down and do nothing 
 Brave an early morning car boot sale
 If it's not raining, head to the library, pick a topic you've not researched before and READ!
 Erect (heh) an indoor tent/cosy fort in your living room
 Have a fire on the beach (if it is safe to do so, obvs) and don't forget the marshmallows!
 Making homemade gifts for the festive season? Start them now!
 Do something cultured - visit your local galleries, museums...aquariums!
 Blog photographs of your hometown as it adopts a few autumnal changes 

I hope this has given you lots of inspiration for things to do this autumn. I'm definitely going to be perusing this list when I have a spare moment from university work/sleeping. What things are you looking forward to getting up to this autumn? What list would you like to see next? I'm off to cook tonight's roast chicken with all the trimmings. You have no idea how much I am looking forward to shoving it down my gullet! Classy bird, as ever. Bye!

  3. Loving this- making me feel better after getting rained on at the hospital yesterday, and again going to work this morning.

    May I also add... Chuck out the PJs that don't fit/are beyond repair and treat yourself to a nice pair... I'm hitting up M&S this weekend to buy a really nice pair, then Primark for some extra ones.

  12. I love writing lists, so reading this was so lovely. I'd definitely recommend memorandom if you haven't already heard of it--it's perfect for writing lists <3

    The one thing I look forward to when it's Autumn time is knowing that Winter is around the corner. I LOVE winter fashion and cuddling and drinking tea.
