Food. Wine. Two of my favourite things. Disney had the great idea to put both together and turn it into a festival quite a few years ago, and now the Epcot Food & Wine Festival draws thousands of people everyday. It runs for several months in the autumn, and is particularly busy on weekends as the locals come to Disney World to taste their way around the world. We had a great afternoon of choosing dishes.

Also on Day 9, we went for a long walk around the Boardwalk. This is another place that is more popular on evenings and weekends, but it’s a lovely and peaceful place to be at any time of the day or week.

To wrap up the day, we ticked a dining experience off our Disney bucket list and ate next to the water at the San Angel Inn at the Mexico Pavillion.

So what are you waiting for? Take a look at my new vlog and then come back for my tips and tricks below.

As the nights draw in and the days get cooler, it’s the perfect time for snuggling up in bed with lots of pillows, fluffy socks, a mug of hot chocolate and a book.

I’m always on the look out for another book to order or something else to download on my kindle, so here are my top picks for the season. Don’t forget to share your own autumn favourites in the comments, too.

I’m a summer child. I love the feeling of warmth beating down from the sun, and wearing strappy tops so that my hair tickles my back when it’s up in a pony tail. I love being able to keep all the windows and doors open late into the night, and enjoying long days where the sun doesn’t want to set.

Those days are gone for another year now and autumn has taken over.

Social media seems to go mad over this phenomenon. As soon as September started, pictures of pumpkin spiced-anything, chunky jumpers and open fires were everywhere. Instead of a cool month, though, we had a heatwave. It’s only now that the weather has properly turned and it’s time to accept that autumn is officially here. Actually, it seems like the seasons have slipped and pressed fast forward, so we’re now hurtling through winter instead.

Either way, there’s no point pining over those long summer days. Instead, it’s time to embrace autumn. Here are the top five things I’m looking forward to this season.
