During the Autumn months there’s nothing I love more than a good woodland walk or to stretch my legs around a country park. It’s the perfect season for spotting wonderful wildlife, taking in natural beauty and of course, pulling on a warm jumper to keep the cold at bay.
For today’s Blogtober post I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourite knits – Autumn-appropriate jumpers for cosy Sunday afternoons.
Next month I turn the big 3-0. I can’t quite believe that I am leaving my twenties behind, I still feel a bit like an overgrown child if I’m being honest.
For today’s Blogtober I thought it would be fun to share a ‘birthday wish list’. At this point in my life I honestly don’t ask (or want) people to buy me specific gifts so everything you see here will more than likely be purchased by myself over the course of the next few weeks!
When I bought my first ever house one of the things I was most excited for was the garden. I couldn’t wait to build an aviary, plant a bunch of flowers and put up lots of bird feeders. My garden was a wonderful haven for wildlife – I once counted 4-5 hedgehogs in it at a single time and regularly had interesting birds on the fence (including a big sparrowhawk!)
So obviously it’s no surprise that one of the things I miss the most, now that I no longer have my home, is my garden. Throughout my years of blogging I have always documented my gardens – whether through a taking a look at the garden birds that were visiting my feeders or the plants that were growing in my borders – I loved discovering and sharing the nature on my doorstep. So despite the fact I no longer have my own garden, I have been taking lots of photos of my Mums (which is where I currently live) and have been utilising it to the best of my ability. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d share my (current) garden in Autumn and all of the wonderful changes the season is bringing about.
I love Halloween – next to Christmas it’s my most favourite time of the year. I enjoy all of the spooky events, the dressing up, all of the themed snacks and seeing porches lit up by carved pumpkins.
Last year I had a whole house of my own to decorate. I didn’t go mad but I definitely had pumpkins on my doorstep and a whole host of hanging things adorning the living room as well as orange lights in the window. I gave out goodie bags to Trick or Treaters too. But this year things are a little different and I’m back living with my Mum. I was pleasantly surprised one morning to discover (as I was leaving for work) that both my younger brother and Mum had decided to decorate the front garden! So for today’s Blogtober I thought I’d share how they chose to decorate. Considering this was done on a fairly low budget I’m impressed! Carved pumpkins will follow shortly…
Autumn evenings are ideal for relaxing, getting snug under soft blankets and living your best Hygge life. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d share my perfect cosy night in – perhaps this will inspire you after a long and tiring day at work!
One of my favourite things about Blogtober (besides challenging myself to create content and generally taking lots of lovely Autumnal-themed photographs) is reading all of the fun posts that pop up in my reader. One blogger who I have been following for sometime now (and whose posts I always enjoy reading) is Hollie over at Beauty and the Bookshelves. Hollie is also taking part in Blogtober and recently posted a fun Autumn Tag (which you can read here!)
For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d take part in the tag too. Make sure to check out Hollie’s post and please feel free to give it a go yourself if you’re taking part in Blogtober and fancy writing something fun and lighthearted!
Pools of sunlight ripple on the river, a warm Autumn sun breathing life in to the marshes. I scan between the reeds and pond weed for a flash of golden eye, expertly camouflaged, easily missed. I’ve trodden those same wooden boardwalks countless times; followed all the beaten pathways. No matter how many times I make the journey, I always scan the water hoping to catch a glimpse of a frog.

The rain is coming down in sheets, darkness rakes its fingers across the morning sky. Long gone are the days of heading out in a cotton dress and bare legs – October is finally here.
And with it, comes Blogtober.
September seemed to fly by in a haze of lazy Sunday mornings and woodland walks, endless cups of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and warm bubble baths on chilly evenings.
October is here and with it comes Halloween, firework displays, toffee apples, dark mornings and of course, Blogtober.
