Autumn is upon us! Technically, it started on Friday 22nd September in the UK (also my mum’s birthday) so it’s socially acceptable to embrace all the Autumn tings now we’re officially in the season. Although what’s the betting we get a heat-wave now? But anyway, it’s the season for all us basic bitches (absolutely nothing wrong with being a basic bitch) to come out of our shells and to flood the blogoverse with pumpkins , fairy-lights and candles galore. Here’s my own basic-ass list of things you can do to fully embrace the most wonderful season of all.
- Write some Autumn themed blog content! I have a whole list of ideas here
- Make an Autumn Pinterest board
- Write an Autumn bucket list
- Treat yourself to a new fluffy blanket / jumper
- Experiment with different types of tea, to keep you warm when it starts getting cold!
- Make DIY Autumn home décor
- Deep clean your house / bedroom / desk to mark the start of a new season
- Write down your goals for the rest of the year
- Perfect a hearty, comfort food recipe
- Organise a cute movie night for a chilly evening
- Sort out your wardrobe; give some old summer clothes to charity and bring forward your colder wear
- Try something with pumpkin in it
- Go out for afternoon tea
- Create an Autumn reading list
- Start a new hobby
- Carve a pumpkin
- Dig out all your candles
- Go on a chilly, morning walk and step on crunchy leaves
- Experiment with a new craft; painting, flower pressing or knitting?
- Watch some fireworks with loved ones
- Buy a homeless person a warm meal / cup of tea or donate tins to a food bank
- Start preparing your Christmas shopping list / presents
- Go conker collecting
- Treat a loved one to a new pair of fluffy socks to keep their feet warm
- Make a hot chocolate with all the trimmings
- Invest in new lip care to take care of your lips in the cold weather
- Just take a moment to sit and embrace the change of season
Do you have anything to add to this list? What are your plans for Autumn? Are you a fan of Autumn?

[…] I adore Autumn and everything about it. Including bonfire night and fireworks. I’ve always had such a fascination for fireworks and that time around bonfire night has always been one of my favourite times of year. To me, it signifies a time to get together with family or friends, let go of the year so far and just enjoy each others company whilst watching the magic that fireworks bring to the sky. But of course, for pets, this time of year can be hugely detrimental. […]

I love this list! I need to go autumn candle shopping! X
Me too! I had this gorgeous Christmassy orangey scented candle last year!
AHhh this post has made me feel so autumnal! I really want to make an autumnal Pinterest board! I love getting cosy jumpers and blankets, that’s one of my favourite things about Autumn!
Hehe, I am SO addicted to my Autumn Pinterest board at the mo!
Aw this post made me feel so ready for Autumn! I’m so excited for Autumn to be here – I love waking up super early and taking the dog for a walk, crunching on the leaves! I love the idea of an Autumn bucket list – but I think I’m going to bookmark this post and use it as my list of ideas to make me feel all snuggly and Autumnal! 😉
Awh yay! Go for it (: hope Autumn is wonderful to you!
Yeah girl!!🍁🍂 Autumn has come (today was the first day in like a week that it was 85° out!) and I’m so happy!! I’ve got my Fall TBR list and a new cider recipe (with 3 or 4 more I need to test out) ready to go. It’s beautiful!!❤️☺️
Yay! You go and grab Autumn 🍁🎃
It’s always deep cleaning for me. The minute the night grows dark and the weather cold it’s time for the big clean before Christmas!

YES! I love a deep clean too. I tend to do a few proper big cleans during the year and the start of a new season seems to be a good time to do one! (: xx
Great post! I’ve been looking for autumnal blog post ideas and things to do during half term 😄 My favourite things about autumn are the fashion, the colour scheme and the cosy vibes 🍂❄️
I live for the cosy vibes! 💕
Autumn is the best ! I tried cooking a pumpkin quiche last year, and it was DELICIOUS. Perfect autumn dish !
Autumnal pinterest boards are simply the most beautiful thing ever! I love scrolling through them, especially since the trees in Malta are mostly evergreen !
Oh wow! That sounds lovely- maybe do a recipe post about that? xx
I love all of these ideas! I definitely want to do some more autumnal cooking this year. I’m a big fan of vegetables and hearty stews and autumn seems to be the perfect season. This year I want to branch out a little from my carrots and potatoes! I definitely need to make more pumpkin-flavoured foods and get properly into the spirit. And not food-related, I definitely want to organise a cosy movie night! Candles, fairy lights and soft halloween stories would be ideal.
Vegetables and stews are BEAUTIFUL! My mum makes the best stew and dumplings <3 xx
Hi, love this list, yes to buying a new jumper, getting out those candles and trying those teas designed for the colder months. I even walked through the leaves today and kicked them around me, love it 😊🍃🍂🍁.
I love stepping in piles of leaves too, it’s one of those small things that’s really satisfying 🍂
I love literally everything you’ve got on this list!! Autumn is 100% my favorite season of all time, and I look forward to the decor, the general coziness, and the nicer weather all year long!! Perfecting a comfort food recipe is top of my list for this autumn, especially if I can find a good one for a crockpot!
What’s the weather like in Autumn where you are? (You’re in America right?) I love it when you feel the first chill in the air ❄️
Candles is what I love most in fall! With walks in the cold! I have never cared a pumpkin but I love pumpkin sauce! xx corinne
Oooh pumpkin sauce that sounds interesting! 🎃
[…] Source: 27 little things you can do to embrace Autumn […]
Definitely my favorite season in every sense.
It is the beginning of spring here now. Both transitional seasons bring this city out in the best colours.
In terms of literature I love autumn as it is my warmest emotional season. Open fireplaces and the accompanying smells and fragrances
Great list! I just dug out all my fall candles!
I need to do the same! (: xz
I love this!! Such a great idea xo
Thank you (: xx
This is such a fab post, how have I not started an Autumn Pinterest board yet? Last year we carved a cat pumpkin with stick on ears and whiskers so definitely going to do that again! And yessssssss to hot chocolate 🍵 xx

Oooh that sounds cute! Would love to see a photo if you have one! (: xx
I’m going to put it in my next post, haha! xx
Lovely list. I like number 4 and I will actually get a few nice cosy jumpers. Why not? 😛
Why not indeed! Any excuse (;
I love a good autumn Pinterest board!! It makes me feel so cozy xx

So addictive aren’t they?!
Autumn is the best time!! And I have fully embraced it now haha. Happy birthday to your mum… she officially has the best birthday date! Xxxxxx
I’m so glad! She really does. Mine is on the 4th so I’m still a summer baby even though I HATE summer! xx
I’m so unbelievably glad that autumn is finally here! It’s by far my favourite time of year so I’m very excited! I can’t wait to drink all the hot chocolate, snuggled up with a blanket and watch all my favourite cosy shows! xx
Sounds absolutely perfect, Chloe! 💕
You’re absolutely right, there’s nothing wrong with embracing your basic bitch side during the autumn! Pumpkin spice latte, anyone? I definitely want to treat a loved one (as well as myself hehe) to a pair of new fluffy socks, and an autumn reading list is a fantastic idea as well! Thanks for making me feel all seasonal!

Although I’ll let you in to a secret… I’ve never tried a pumpkin spice latte! 🙈 xx
What a fab post!! My autumn started September 1st – oops! I went out and did an autumn haul and I am living fot all my jumpers scarves and coats! I made an autumn Pinterest board and it gave me so many autumnal feels and inspiration! Ill definitely be making note of these, I used to be a conker champion (in primary school..!)

Great list! Autumn is my favourite season – I just love it. Can’t wait for pumpkin carving, all the cuddly blankets and copious amounts of tea.
Aimee, I got SO confused just then before I realised your surname is different now haha! 🙊 I’ve only ever carved one pumpkin and it was REALLY hard. Might give it another go this year!
I absolutely love this post!! I am definitely going to buy a fluffy blanket and I love morning walks, the colours are so beautiful!
They are aren’t they! I’ve recently been away for the weekend and the colours are beautiful 🍁
I loved this post because I always have a hard time embracing autumn, especially when it starts getting cold and dark, so it’s great to learn a few extra tips – I’m off to make an autumn board on pinterest asap! <3
Enjoy! It can get SO addictive 💕 there’s such beautiful photos on there though, it’s hard to resist!
I love Autumn! It’s my favourite season, and you’ve wrote some amazing ideas down that I haven’t even thought of!
Thanks Lauren! I love it too 🍁
I plan my reading every month, I think the only thing I do in Autumn is go see a fire work display and buy Halloween related food for me.
I love a firework display too! 🎇
