Fun things to do now that summer is ending


I am both happy and sad that summer is ending, although here in Cyprus we have an endless summer that goes until the end of October. But the weather is changing (thank god) and I am so glad that we have cooler days and nights, the heat was unbearable in July and August.
Fall is a great season to do many things and be prepared for Christmas. Yes, it is awkward to talk about Christmas already, but we must start preparing.

Here are some activities you can do now that the season is changing.

 Read the book you were planning to read but didn't

♥ Go for a hike

♥ Take photos in nature; now that the weather is changing 
you will find amazing backgrounds with fallen leaves in the most amazing brown/yellow colours

♥ Collect leaves and do craftwork and activities with your kids

♥ Start knitting; in two months you will have a lovely knitted scarf ready to wear in winter

♥ Join the gym (again) and start exercising

♥ Invite friends over for drinks and talk about how you spent your summer

♥ Clean your closet and donate the clothes you don't want

♥ Go shopping for fall clothes

♥ Paint your nails in darker shades

♥ Pick a berry/plum shade lipstick; berry shades are perfect for fall

♥ Start preparing and thinking what to wear on Halloween

♥ Order your Christmas decoration if you buying any online. You will have plenty of time to get organized so this is the perfect time

♥ Attend a festival (here we have two upcoming festivals in September and I cannot wait to attend!)

♥ Now that the days at the beach are over, plan to visit the mountains and rent a cabin to stay there and enjoy the amazing nature and scenery

♥ Plant seeds in your garden to have them blooming in spring

♥ Order pizza and have a movie night

♥ Start re-watching Game of Thrones (if you are watching or your favourite series) to be ready for the next season

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday and I will see you soon!

  31. I'm actually really looking forward to summer being over!! I don't know what it is, I'm just not a fan of the heat (and bugs!!), I like autumn months a lot more (yay for lattes and comfy jumpers! :)). Loving your list, hun, I think these things could be fun to do all year round, not just in summer! x x Pizza night? Every night babe hahaha ;) <3
