Autumn Inspiration Checklist


Yeah, that's a thing. I think Hallowe'en deserves to be more than one day. Hallowe'en isn't a day, after all, it's a spirit. It's a way of living, for goodness sake.

I'm lucky that where I live I get a little bit more Autumn goodness than other places of the country, with the warm weather extending the Autumn season slightly more than up North— but even still, I like to hang on to that Fall feeling as long as I can. It's cozy, it's crisp, it's colourful, it's mysterious and a little bit magickal— what more could you want? (Okay, living at Hogwarts, yes, but we'll take what we can get).

For an extra big of autumn inspiration, pick some of your favourites from the list and get to it!
