10 Things To Do This Autumn

UntitledStuck on what to do this autumn? I feel ya. I'd be the first to want to hibernate until next season but stop what you're doing and try one or all of these things, because despite the darker days, there's a whole lot to do.

1. Go to a gallery

If you're lucky enough to live near a gallery or three, chances are there's a new exhibition on. So set aside a spare afternoon and lose yourself in someone else's work.


2. Catch a film

Come the colder weather, nothing beats heading to the cinema for 90 minutes of films and food, oh and the trailers - because no-one likes to miss those. Check out off peak times or 2 for 1 offers to save the dollar.


3. Take a walk in the park

The best way to embrace autumn? By getting out there and actually seeing it IRL, as the kids say. So dig out the polo necks and get your Insta ready for red leaves everywhere. Whether it's a casual stroll or a weekend hike, nothing beats stretching your legs somewhere pretty.


4. Have a mini spa day

And no, you don't have to splash out on a fancy schmancy place. Check out day passes at the gyms that come with a pool, steam rooms and saunas. So you might not get the massage, but with a jacuzzi and full body steam, it really doesn't matter what the weather's like outside when you're in there.


5. Have a roast dinner

Of the many great things about autumn, one of my faves is the food. Think pies, stews and roast dinners - because Sundays for the next 6 months will pretty much revolve around Yorkshire puddings if you ask me...


6. Host a dinner party

Play hostess with the mostess and invite the crew round for a night of dinner and drinks. It saves money and gets you serious brownie points amongst the squad. Here's hoping they tip!


7. Join the library

Library's are overrated. I only realised this the other week. I buy all these books and never read them again, yet you can save the cash and borrow them instead and be like a real life Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Same with films. Sorted. It's old school but losing yourself in a good book is often the quickest way to feeling zen.


8. Take part in a pub quiz

Ditch the slick bars and find yourself a traditional pub. You know the ones - where they serve proper pints, the floorboards are uneven and there's either a dart board, pool table - or both. And enter you and your friends in a pub quiz - even if you do crap (very likely), you'll have a laugh along the way.


9. It's all fun and games

Whether it's something as retro as a jigsaw or you embark on a competitive game of Articulate, bring out your inner child in a fun game or three with the family.


10. Stay home...

Ok, had to be done. With the darker nights and mornings, it technically doesn't count if you stay in bed that little longer right? Just make sure you've got allllll the snacks in, and Netflix films queued.
