One of my favourite things about the chillier months is to be cosy. I love wrapping up in chunky knits and pyjama bottoms with a cup of tea and a couple of biscuits whilst I type away at my laptop or watch a couple films! Other than being cosy on a chilly Autumn day there are plenty of things to do this Autumn, so here are some of my favourites!
1:: Visit gardens. You wouldn't think flowers would still be in bloom around the colder months but when I visited Trentham Gardens last year in October I was amazed at how many beautiful flowers I saw as I walked about the gardens.
2:: Pumpkin carving. I have to admit not the biggest fan of Halloween, I really don't do well with anything blood and gore related, you'll find me hiding indoors on the 31st! However, that doesn't stop me from carving some pumpkins. I found some really great pumpkin ideas on Pinterest, so I can't wait to get carving!
3:: Firework displays. My favourite place to visit around firework night is Alton Towers, they really do put on such a great display and you also get two attractions for the price of one as you can go on the rollercoasters in the day (or in the dark) and then watch the amazing firework display in the evening!
4:: Visit a local farm shop and buy some fresh fruit and vegetables or baked bread and pies!
5:: Bake something Autumnal. Baking is always best in Autumn, baked treats straight from the oven, yes please! Apple and pumpkin pies seem to be the favourites around this time of the year so I think I'll be searching around for some recipes to have a go at!
6:: Go for a forest walk when the leaves have turned orange and the paths covered with crunchy leaves!
7:: Add Autumnal style to your home. I love walking around shops when they have all of their Autumn/Winter homeware out on the shop floor. I just love that transition from the Summer range to Autumn, you could add scented candles around your house, comfy throws and cushions for your living room or bedroom or you could add fairy lights around the house to create a warm light in the evenings!
8:: Have a go at some Autumn DIY/arts and crafts.
9:: Dig out the chunky knits.
10:: Have a hot drink and cake at a café. Autumn isn't complete without a pumpkin spiced latte, or hot chocolate with plenty of marshmallows and chocolate shavings!
