Autumn Bucketlist

Hi y’all, are you ready for fall?


Get yourself a cup of tea, play some jazz, and get cozy!

I sure am, autumn is one of my favourite seasons (but then again, so are the others once they arrive).

Therefore, I have created a bucket list for having a great autumn in spite of the crazy state of the world.

You’ll notice there’s a section for stuff to do (which might not be a possibility for you depending on your location), what to read, and great movies for getting you into the right autumnal atmosphere! Also, the books listed in the physical picture are just my tbr, so I added some books to the new list that are specifically autumn-ish.

I originally made this as a page in my journal, so just a clarification, it’s my own picture and ideas:-) Have fun!


Note: If you live in a place where COVID-19 is still going crazy, you should of course social distance and stay at home!
