Well look no further I have complied a list below of ideas for you and your family to make a longer life of your pumpkins that served you well over the festive season of Halloween.

My Cosy Autumnal Bucket List

So it is now officially autumn season (my favourite season!) and this means I have so many activities and places I want to visit to help myself and others get in the ‘autumnal’ mood. I’d love to hear what your favourite season is and why?

I do love the typical autumn walks with the crunchy leaves and the trees turning orange and brown. I also love the crisp mornings with the dew on the grass and the not so much ‘pitch black’ skies but the darker moodier mornings. Below I’ve complied a list of a few things I want to do/places to go during autumn:

  • Visit a Pumpkin Patch.
  • Buy and carve/decorate a Pumpkin.
  • ‘Cosy-fy’ the flat (fairy lights, candles, throws and cushions).
  • Evening walks in the crunchy leaves.
  • Movie Nights with hot chocs, candles & Halloween films.
  • Visit a Bonfire around Bonfire night.
  • Coffee shop dates.
  • Celebrate Thanksgiving in some way.
  • Go Conker picking.
  • Bake cookies / buns / cakes etc.
  • Make my own hot drinks (Pumpkin spiced lattes etc).

If there are any other things you think I may have missed off my list please be sure to comment them below or let me know somehow. I am excited to see a lot more autumnal content and all the neutral colour schemes that will be bracing our Instagram feeds soon (if they haven’t already).

If you have a favourite season, let me know what it is and why!

Thanks for reading,

Why I believe there are NO rules, when it comes to having your life together!

About The Author:

Sunshine Sarah is a blogger from Harrogate, North Yorkshire who loves nothing better than long hot bubble baths accompanied by a glass of wine, walks in the countryside preferably with a dog and a visit to a pub and brunching with friends.

When I was a teenager, I always believed that by 25 Iโ€™d have my life together and would be pregnant with twins – a boy and a girl naturally so Iโ€™d get it all over in one pregnancy! At that time I thought 25 was OLD (ha!) so therefore Iโ€™d have the husband, my own home, a dog and a white picket fence!

Is being ‘Single’ all that bad?

No. That’s my answer to that question. Thanks for reading. If you want to figure out why that’s my answer, some things that I’ve learnt and realised from being single and a bit of advice from single friends, please read on.

I didn’t know how much of my ‘personal’ / ‘private’ life I was going to share online however I realised I can write posts like this without the need to share much at all. It’s more of a ‘what I’ve learnt’ and ‘advice’ style post but I hope you like it and hope it helps even just one person.

I’ve listed a few below but there are hundreds of little things that we should be more grateful for that go un-noticed.

This is a Guest Post – to find out about guest posting on my blog check out my contact page or message me on social media. Thank you to Nicola from NicsHealthyLife for this post about minimalists.

Some people say minimalism is hard. I disagree with this and think that not only is it easy to be a minimalist, but in turn it will make your life easier. However, when you first embrace minimalism, you might find that there are several obstacles to overcome.
