5 Bucket List Ideas for this Fall


Need some motivation? Read on for five bucket list ideas you need to try this fall.

Have a bucket list? Good! They are important, as we only get to ride once this crazy merry-go-round called life. It’s easy to get bogged down in the monotony of day-to-day schedule and lose your inspiration. If you haven’t written a bucket list, do so now, and refer to it often and always. Autumn is a great time to chip away at it, as we all want to get in as much as we can before we’re trapped indoors with the heat cranked to high.

1. Travel

Stop postponing that trip or trips you’ve wanted to go on for years. Your excuses not to travel will always be there, but the opportunity might not be. Pulling the trigger on this bucket list item will never be a mistake. And fall is a wonderful time to travel; you’ll likely experience nice weather in many places and you’ll get better rates than in the summer. Whether you do it solo or surround yourself with your favorite traveling buddies, traveling is simply good for the soul. Remember to take your journal as well as lots of photos. About that last part, though—don’t take so many pictures that you’re not living in the moment, okay?

2. Land the Job of Your Dreams

So this doesn’t sound like a bucket list item but it is when you’ve been slaving away at a job for years that you don’t enjoy. It might be time to take the leap. Of course, you need to assess the pros vs. the cons, and you obviously don’t want to make a huge life change if you’re the main breadwinner in your family and this decision could affect everyone. If you’re in a position to do it, however, take the chance. Open the wine and cheese shop you’ve envisioned your whole life. Become a personal trainer. Teach yoga! Find your passion and do it. Or if you’ve been longing to take a hiatus and are able to do so, fall is the perfect time to indulge.

3. Dress Up for Halloween

Have you been that person every year? The one who shows up in “street clothes” when ghosts, ghouls, and goblins abound? Don’t do it. It’s a downer to all who attend Halloween parties. This year, commit to finding Halloween costumes for you and your significant other or your whole family. The Tipsy Elves options are easy and sure to be a conversation starter—you’re not reinventing the Halloween wheel here.

4. Get Active

We’re not just talking about a jaunt on the elliptical or the hike you’ve done a thousand times. Think about signing up for an adventure race, go bungee jumping and/or zip lining, or climb a mountain. Fall is such a gorgeous time of year, so get out there and take advantage of the crisp air, comfortable temperatures, and changing leaves. Check out Cloud9Living to find some excellent fall adventures in your area.

5. Go Wine Tasting

Fall is an ideal time to go wine tasting, as this is the time of year that many vineyards have their harvest festivals. They often pair up with other vineyards nearby to offer food and wine pairings that will knock your socks off. You might live close enough to do a road trip but, if not, think about traveling to a place like Napa, Sonoma, the Oregon coast, Santa Barbara, or even France! While wine tasting is different at some vineyards, it typically consists of about six to eight pairings of red and white wines. Some places offer nibbles while others have restaurants on site. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to walk around the grounds or get a guided tour, as vineyards are often on land that will take your breath away.

Between the pumpkin spice-ification of all things, the stunning weather, and the opportunity to watch far too much football, fall is really hard to beat. If you’ve been letting your bucket list gather proverbial dust, this is a great time of year to change that.

Wolford seamlessly fits into your wardrobe

Under to outer wear – why Wolford is the name to remember.

When top fashion designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Zac Posen and Karl Lagerfeld want to work with a brand, all fashionistas need to pay attention. Wolford – which is an Austrian company known for their high quality hosiery, is now also making more more “to be seen’ pieces with the same durable yet luxurious textiles.

When Wolford sent over some of their thights and their best-selling Fatal dress ( I already owned one but was happy to get another!) it was a no-brainer for me to write this article.


I am wearing Wolford’s multi-functional Fatal dress (as a skirt) and their tights.
Perfect for those of us who want to show a bit of leg without showing skin.

Zooming in, you can see the high quality weaving that makes the Wolford tights durable.

Here’s why you should be checking out their high-end pieces at www.wolfordshop.com
or at a Wolford Boutique near you.


Their Luxe 9 tights – one of the most sheerest tights in the market and it makes your legs look like airbrushed perfection.


Look how invisible Worlford’s Luxe 9 tights are. It makes your skin looks flawless and yet you need to peer really closely to see it. PS : I hardly wear my skirt this high but I needed to show how invisible the thights are.
They come in a variety of shades to fit a wide range of skin tones.
