Hello September - 12 Things You Can Do If You're Not Feeling The Autumn Months

1 Sept 2020

Can you believe it's September already? Autumn officially starts on September 22nd but it's okay if you're starting it early like me. 

I'm excited to dig out my woolly hats and also my burgundy dress (as you can see on Instagram HERE) that I wore on a night out weekend just past. I'm  also looking forward to enjoying a hot chocolate from a Miss Bohemia mug or planning a Halloween outfit. Even if there's no going out this year I'm still planning an outfit and full makeup look as it's one of my favourite times of the year. There's also cosy movie nights in, extra blankets and hot water bottles.

Autumn lets us remember the many things that are important and we're grateful for, it's the prettiest season in my opinion with all the leaves changing but there's also the downside.. the days are shorter, nights longer/darker. If you struggle with the upcoming months then check out my list below of 12 things you can do to bring a little brightness back into your day. 

1) Revamp your wardrobe - prepare and plan outfits, do a little shopping! (Primark Scarves will be out soon! *Fingers crossed*

2) Have a relaxing bubble bath, light some tealights and grab a feel good book! 

3) Enjoy a movie night in with friends, a partner, family or even by yourself! Means you don't have to share your snacks then! 

4) Have an Autumn theme photoshoot? It's less expensive than it sounds! I usually plead with my sister to take my pictures! 

5) Go for a walk in the fresh air and stand on the crunchy leaves as you go. 

6) Treat yourself to a hot chocolate or your favourite warm drink.

7) Get crafty - you don't even have to use alot of money for it. Colouring-in helps you relax, you could even try making your own Christmas cards. The Works and Poundland always have cheap but amazing quality items available. Or why not start a bullet journal?

8) Jump in puddles! You are never too old!

9) Plan a romantic night away or even a fun trip with your bestie. 

10) Change up your space and redecorate. Home Bargains always have modern, little items to include in your home.

11) Light some spicy candles - have a look for some new scents. If you're like me then the month ahead will be spicy and cinnemon. 

12) Start planning Christmas - Sometimes it's good to start planning a little early to prepare yourself from rushing. I know I'm starting my Christmas planning this month as well or plan some trips for the months you enjoy. I find it helps having something to look forward to.

Do you enjoy the coming months? What's one thing you do to enjoy the darker days? Let me know in the comments below!

  3. It's sad that it feels like summer here on our end (it's supposed to be rainy season). I hope you enjoy the autumn season!

  4. Love these ideas! I recently went thrifting to buy some fall decor for my apartment, and that definitely helped me get in the autumn mood :) Thanks for sharing!
