So as you can see in the title, I have been working on a collaboration with Erin from KittyJade. It was so much fun working with her and we’ve come up with such an amazing post. Honestly Erin, I would love to do this again.
So for this post, I’m gonna give you 5 of Erin’s top things to do in autumn and 5 of mine.
Early September is the perfect time for blackberry picking. Autumn is the time of foraging and you will always see an insane amount of conkers in my house. I recommend you go blackberry picking during the golden hour – it is a beautiful experience and such a lovely walk! Come back and bake yourself a lovely crumble, for autumn is the pie season! I have recipe for a blackberry and apple crumble on my blog here.
2. Pumpkin Patch
I have never gone to a pumpkin patch but I would love to! When it comes closer to Halloween, it would be amazing to pick your own pumpkin to carve. Look for some pumpkin farms near you and go out with your friends! It may be an expensive ordeal but, from what I have heard, it is worth it.
3. Chai Lattes
A great part of autumn is when the coffee shops start introducing their pumpkin spice lattes and gingerbread hot chocolates. However, you could have a go at home! I rarely go out for a coffee so my special treats are when I make them myself. Chai lattes are quite complex but well worth it. I always use Zoella’s recipe (which, for copyright reasons, I cannot share).
The absence of candles in the summer only makes you more hungry for them by the time autumn comes around! I enjoy pumpkin or cinnamon scented candles for this time of year. Not only do they smell delicious, but they leave everything in the room with a spiced layer of scent.
5. Attend A Local Fireworks Display
By the time we get to November, everyone is wrapped up in scarfs from head to toe! It’s so crazy how fast this year has gone, and we’re already back to autumn. November 5th is high time for celebration and I love going to a bonfire night in the closest village! Though bad for the environment, it is truly a wonder to see a firework display. I always go with my family and meet up with my closest friends.
1. Go apple picking
Of course, you can’t not go apple picking during autumn. This time is when the trees leave us natural goodness……for free
On top of that…it’s a really exciting and time consuming thing to do. But once you do this, you’ll think: Why have I never done this?
2. Go for a hike + have a picnic
Honestly, my favourite outdoor memories would have to be hiking, especially in forests, full of cool, crispy air. It’s amazingly satisfying.Plus, you get to run away from life for a few hours.After that, maybe on the same site, just set up a little picnic spot. Obviously you can’t go alone. Trust me, i’ts not regrettable. I actually am going hiking later this week.
3. Collect colourful leaves + listen to the sound of crunching leaves
This is one of my favourites. It’s incredibly satisfying and beautiful to watch leaves falling. While you do this, you’re also going to be enjoying the cool autumn breeze. It’s also really healthy, to go for a nice evening walk in autumn, so that’s definitely a to do.
4. Attend a fall festival
Getting together with family, friends and neighbours is one of the best things about autumn. Because you can attend, or even host a fall festival.This will bring so many people together and I can bet that everyone will have a great time…..in so many different ways.
5. Make Autumn goodies
Everyone knows you can’t go through autumn without having some autumn treats, as i call them. You can make these at home with your family or friends.Some ideas of autumn treats are: Candy apples, caramel apples, all sorts of pies, pumpkin bread, cider doughnuts, and many more. You can find a recipe for blackberry and apple crumble on Erin’s blog. Linked above.
