The October Bucket List



  • Make a leaf pile, jump in it.
  • Be a common white girl and have a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
  • Have a movie marathon with friends involving lots of blankets, cushions, popcorn and warm beverages.
  • Wear lots of oversized jumpers. And beanie hats.
  • Read a book.
  • Carve pumpkins and attempt to do so artistically.
  • Decorate your house for autumn because we all know how badly you want a pinterest worthy house.
  • Take loads of pictures of everything Autumnal.
  • Make an October playlist.
  • Toast Marshmallows over a fire.
  • Cuddle with an animal or human of your choice because hugs are amazing.
  • Watch Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare before Christmas at least 7 times each. Why 7 you ask? If you’re Potter fan you’ll understand.
  • Speaking of Harry Potter, October is the perfect time to have a Potter Marathon with all your nerdy friends.
  • Find or make a kickass Halloween costume.
  • Have a Halloween Party.
  • Eat way too many sweets and more chocolate than you’ve ever consumed before!


That’s my October Bucket List, let me know  some of your ideas in the comments below.

Having Fun For Free

Being a teen on a budget I find that having a good time with my friends that doesn’t leave us with empty pockets is incredibly difficult!

So we have found that one of the best ways to have fun without paying a single penny is to have a mock photo shoot ourselves.

This is brilliant in the summer because it means that you get to go outside and enjoy the weather as well as capture great memories. So if you’re stuck for things to do this summer then get outside with a group of friends and take pictures!

You don’t even need a proper camera, a phone will do and there are hundreds of app to help you edit and take photos.

Here are some of my favourite pictures of me and my friends. Although they are mostly of me because I didn’t want to put them on here without the permission of my friends.

Thanks for reading!!!

Comment any ideas you have for having fun on a budget, I’m sure everyone would love to hear about them.
