Autumn/Winter bucket list... #blogtober Day 2

Right so hopefully none of you will notice but I've already failed on blogtober Day 2! I actually had an operation yesterday and didn't realise I would be kept in the hospital until so late so you'll have to forgive me and I will write two posts in one day at some point. As much as I love the Summer, Winter does have some of my favourite times of the year - Halloween and Christmas. You may already know that I have my Bucket List that I try to tick off a few things from every year, but I thought it would be a fun idea to create an Autumn/Winter for me to try and tick off over the next few cold months.


  1. Go to Fright Night at Thorpe Park
  2. Try a spiced pumpkin latte
  3. Carve a pumpkin
  4. Have a Halloween movie marathon night with my friends
  5. Create a fun Halloween costume
  6. Go to a fireworks display
  7. Visit Brighton for a few days
  8. Go ice skating
  9. Drink lots of Baileys
  10. Teach myself some burgundy and gold Autumn/Winter eye make up looks
  11. Throw my sister an awesome baby shower (she is expecting her first child in February!)
  12. Have a Christmas movie marathon night with my sister
  13. Drive around finding the local houses covered in Christmas lights
  14. Purchase a really cheesy Christmas jumper
  15. Go to Winter Wonderland
  16. Learn to crochet
  17. Be organised for once and buy everyone's Christmas presents by early December
  18. Make a Malteaser Christmas pudding cake (found on Pinterest!)
  19. Make gingerbread snowflake Christmas cookies
  20. Make a Christmas yule log cake
  21. Read 3 books
  22. Visit the German Christmas markets in Birmingham
  23. Treat myself to a new sparkly NYE dress

Do you have any fun ideas for me to add?
Hopefully see you tomorrow!
Love Dani x

  22. I have never tried a pumpkin spice latte and I SOOOO want to do a fright night but they generally include Freddie Kruger and it is the only thing my husband really can't stand. He was a terror when he was a child and he managed to sneak downstairs on evening and watch the movie while his mum was in the kitchen with her friends, unaware anyone was in the living room watching the TV! He was only 6 and ever since then he hasn't been able to stand anything to do with it!
