Last Minute Summer Bucket List Ideas

As September is only a day away!  The lovely month August is coming to end, let's take a step back and appreciate the lovely memories we have made over the last month. A month which brought nothing but warm, sunny days and amazing memories with friends and family.

Some of you have had the best time at home and taking little trips out and about, some have gone to see family across the country, or have had family and friends at home. And some of you have been abroad travelling and exploring new places with friends or family.. or both! It has been a month to remember for months ahead, a month to reminisce about when the cold and wet winter hits us! However, as much as some of you may be feeling like summer is coming to an end, you still have September to enjoy just as much as the lovely August has been, maybe even better. 

Although August is coming to end... you may feel like summer is over. But hang on.. we still have another few weeks of summer that can be spent just as good or even better than August. You should start planning ahead and start planning little trips and events for next month. Hopefully the weather will still be good so that you can enjoy some sunshine on your trips and events planned. A family BBQ is always a good idea for the weekend!

However, we know planning sounds easier said than done! Some of you may be stuck on ideas or feel like you have already done everything there is in August. A bucket list is always a good place to start; why not get out your summer bucket lists, as I'm sure many of you have and get some things ticked off that list that you have hidden in a drawer somewhere! September is the perfect month to get some of those bucket list things ticked off. Many of you may have some crazy things on there that you may feel are impossible to get ticked off. 

We have the perfect ideas that you may want to add to that bucket list of yours. Ideas that are completely easy and fun to do! Have a look at our following list, we have created for you. 

-Attend an outdoor movie. Yes! There are outdoor movies and they are so much fun to go to and should definitely make it to your bucket list!  If you can DIY an outdoor movie theater, this is an incredibly fun thing to do during the summer. Bonus points for bringing along some fabulous snacks.

-Enjoy a cozy campfire with your special someone or get the whole family together and get some marshmallows out or Get creative with various chocolate bars and mix and match ingredients to create delicious s’mores. You can also take turns sharing family memories as a way to bond around the campfire. No matter what you talk about, campfires have a way of bringing people together.

-Take a road trip somewhere you haven’t been before. Explore a new city or go to the middle of nowhere and just relax.

-Barbecue some new recipes. Learn to barbecue something new. Step away from your usual go-to recipes and barbecue a unique meal. Step outside your comfort zone this summer and try your hand at a new dish on the ‘barbie.

-Gaze at the stars. The perfect place to gaze at stars is somewhere where there are not a lot of city lights. The beach has always been an amazing place to lay down and gaze at the stars.

There are so many exciting things and ideas to do and to plan from now for the coming month. but while you are planning all these exciting activities for next month, you should do them in style!
