An Enchanting Autumn To Do List

Autumn is my favourite season if you can't already tell! I adore all of the cosy cashmere sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, pastel pink pumpkins and fallen leaves. After reading Catherine and Sophie's blog posts, I felt inspired to write a girly and enchanting autumn to do list...

Visit A Pumpkin Patch
Pumpkin picking is definitely one of the cutest autumnal activities and is perfect if you have little ones. Last year, my friend and I visited a pumpkin patch on a gorgeous sunny day bundled up in our cosy sweaters where we picked pumpkins, walked round a little hay maze and then finished our afternoon off with a pumpkin spice latte and some cinnamon donuts.

Update Your Wardrobe With Some Autumn Staples
I absolutely love fall fashion and as soon as the leaves start to change colour, I start to introduce some new pretty and girly pieces into my wardrobe. I like to wear a mixture of sweet baby pinks, creams and soft neutral colours over the autumn with lots of fluffy pom pom hats, sweaters and adorable Ugg boots adorned with satin bows. One of the sweaters that I'm currently heart-eyed over is this pretty fluffy pink one from Pretty Little Thing.

Treat Yourself To A Hot Chocolate In Your Favourite Mug
I always think that when autumn comes around that it's the perfect time to indulge in some sweet warm drinks and cosying up with a hot chocolate and some Netflix makes for the perfect evening. I treated myself to this pretty Freya Swan Mug from Sass And Belle which has the loveliest powder pink lining and little blush cheeks and fluttery lashes which will be perfect for a fairytale hot chocolate complete with mini marshmallows and fluffy cream.

Go On A Woodland Fairy Trail 
I've always thought that it would be the loveliest idea to go on a little woodland fairy trail especially during the autumn time! Even though it may be more suited to little girls, I think it would be so magical to bundle up in a cosy scarf and spend a whimsical afternoon walking around the forest looking for little pastel fairy doors and cute woodland animals.

Bake An Apple And Blackberry Crumble 
Baking something sweet and comforting at this time of the year is always a good idea and my favourite dessert to make is an apple and blackberry crumble served with double cream. I bought the prettiest little white and gold pumpkin dishes from Next which I think will be perfect for autumnal baking! 

Paint Some Pastel Pink Pumpkins And Sprinkle Them With Princessy Glitter
I always used to enjoy carving pumpkins but now that pumpkin painting has become a trend it's totally taken over for me! Painting pumpkins in pretty pastel pink shades and sprinkling them with silver glitter and dainty confetti stars is so perfect if you want to add some girly autumnal decor to your home. I bought some of these ceramic pumpkins from Hobbycraft and I have painted them a pretty powder pink shade with little metallic silver stalks. You could also paint them soft shades of cream or baby blue and tie them with a silky satin ribbon for a Cinderella feel. 

Snuggle Up With A Fluffy Blanket And A Pumpkin Spice Latte
Cosy afternoons snuggled on the sofa under a fluffy blanket when the rain is battering down outside are one of my favourite things to do during the autumn time. I treated myself to this gorgeous cream chunky knit blanket which will be perfect for snuggly Netflix afternoons and I also have this pretty pink pom pom blanket that I bought from Laura Ashley last year (I'm really tempted to splurge on the lovely pom pom cushion to match!). A pumpkin spice latte with fluffy whipped cream is my favourite autumn drink and whether you treat yourself to one from Starbucks or make one at home in a princessy mug, they are the perfect little indulgence! 

Make Some Toffee And Chocolate Candy Apples
I love a little toffee apple as a cute autumnal treat. The contrast of the sweet sugary caramel with the crunchy apple is so delicious and perfect if you are attending a fireworks display. I also really want to have a try at making some chocolate apples too and I'd love to make some baby pink white chocolate candy apples complete with mini marshmallows and tied with a ribbon bow. 

Go On A Misty Morning Walk Through The Fallen Leaves
Going on an early morning walk when it's cold and misty is one of my favourite things to do. I love to get bundled up in a cosy pom pom hat, a big fluffy sweater and my Ugg boots and take some time out to have a walk through the crunchy leaves. I also like to take a warm drink with me in my Disney princess castle tumbler to enjoy if it's really cold and crisp.

Make Some Fluffy Cinnamon Buns
I've never made cinnamon buns before but I think they look like the perfect autumnal bake. I'd love to have a go at these ones from Manuela's recipe over at Passion For Baking and I think the sweet vanilla bun, lemon frosting and dusting of cinnamon would be delicious with a hot drink. 

Treat Yourself To A Fall Scented Candle And Some Twinkly Fairy Lights
Scented candles and twinkly fairy lights are one of my favourite things about the autumn season and I always like to treat myself to a few new ones around this time of the year. Last year, I bought a Pumpkin Cupcake one from Bath And Body Works which I've been using as pretty autumnal decor. It has the loveliest pastel design of a little cupcake on the front and the lid is silver with a pretty pumpkin design embossed on it. It smells like whipped buttercream, sugary vanilla and cupcake batter but I don't think I can actually bring myself to burn it. This year, I bought the Luscious Pumpkin Trifle and Warm Cashmere scents from Yankee Candle which both smell really cosy and autumnal and I also picked up a White Pumpkin candle from Home Sense which also smells delicious too. 

Make An Enchanting Autumn Pinterest Board
I'm totally addicted to Pinterest and I love to get cosied up with my candles on and have a little browse through all of the pretty pictures and inspirational ideas. I created an Enchanting Autumn board at the start of the season which I've loved adding to. It's made me want to bake all of the sweet autumnal treats, buy pretty pink knitwear and decorate my home with pumpkins and fairy lights everywhere. 

Go To A Fireworks Display With Some Toasted Marshmallows And Love Heart Sparklers
My last girly autumnal idea is to go to watch a fireworks display on a lovely crisp and cold evening. There is nothing better than getting cosied up in a fluffy hat, scarf and mittens and watching all of the beautiful sparkly fireworks glittering in the sky. You could even toast some marshmallows on a bonfire or take along some love heart sparklers to make your evening extra special. 

I hope that you liked this post! What are your favourite things to do during the autumn season?
