My Autumn Goals for 2016

Autumn goals for a beautiful fall season

It’s finally arrived – my (very) favourite season of the year. I wish I could live in a country where it’s late September/early October all the time. I mean, what’s not to love? The weather is perfect, the air is crisp, it’s cosy inside, you can snuggle up with layers and scarves again and everything looks golden. As a constant goal-setter,  I set some autumn goals as well (if you can legitimately ‘make apple pie’ a goal) and here’s my list:

As mentioned above: make apple pie ;)

Or apple crumble, another big favourite. I just think there’s something so incredibly cosy about a rainy Saturday spend at home, reading books, drinking coffee and baking some fresh pie. Just think of the smell!

Take part in a (creative) writing competition

Autumn is the time to write in my opinion. I’ll naturally spend more time at home filled with inspiration from my travels and the long summer. Sitting down to write, even if it’s just for me, is so relaxing.

Make socks

I really want to get back into knitting again and what better time than autumn? Furthermore, I want to get a little head start on making Christmas presents, so I’ll better start now.

Make spicy hot chocolate (like the one at Tinderbox in Glasgow)

Put marshmallows in there. I always miss Scotland this time of year, so spicy hot chocolate is the right cure for those days.

Take short morning walks right after waking up

This is actually quite fun if I make myself go – it’s just that staying in bed is so much more tempting…

Go vintage shopping

I’m on the hunt for a great trench coat, and this year I’ll definitely find it. Otherwise I’ll just buy more sweaters ;)

Start calligraphy

I try one new creative hobby every year (last year it was candle making). Calligraphy has been on my list for ages and starting now would be the perfect timing to make Christmas cards!

Make homemade bread

Fresh bread plus cheese are my love language.

Put cayenne pepper in my tea

I read this somewhere and it sounded interesting. Did you ever try?

Light all the candles!

What better way to let some hygge into your life?

Make pumpkin pie

I actually never had any before let alone make it! Any good recipes?

And even more autumn goals

+ Get a new and cosy pyjama and some slippers.

+ Make scented candles.

+ Find a great autumn perfume.

+ Take a walk through the woods and go on an autumn hike.

+ Read all the books.

+ Make blackberry crumble.

+ Go to the hamam.

+ Have lots of bubble baths and reeelax.

+ Drink all the cider.

+ Go apple-picking.

+ Continue going to Pilates once a week.


Autumn, I’m ready for you! What’s are your favourite autumn goals or new traditions that you can’t wait to start?
