We Went Pumpkin Picking

Hi honeys, you have joined me here today for potentially the most autumnal follow me around ever?! As you can see from the title, me and Chan recently went to a pick your own pumpkin patch and it was so much fun (and defo worth it for all the autumnal pics). A lil warning: this post is v photo heavy!

Last Saturday me and Chan met up for brunch and a much-needed catch up and if you have been following me for a while you will know that each year me and Chan book a festive girls trip away. The past two years it has been Birmingham and Brighton, and this year we’re off to Bournemouth – so get excited about that blog post!


After brunch, we made our way to Avon Valley’s P.Y.O Pumpkin Patch and omg it was literally every blogger’s dream!! It only costs £2 to enter, (which gets refunded if you buy a pumpkin) and you have 15,000 pumpkins to choose from! However, don’t be like me and wear white trainers in a muddy field, they will get ruined haha.


On-site there are lots of fete games aimed at kids (Did I want a go? Definitely) and a few coffee stalls, but we spent our time there finding the prettiest pumpkin and having a mini photoshoot. It has got to the point now where I have no shame whatsoever in awkwardly posing for a thousand photos of me pretending to pick a pumpkin, no matter who is watching. So when you see the pics on insta know that Chan was crouching down in the mud to get the best angles and I am pretending to naturally pick a pumpkin, when really it’s so staged and 1000 photos were taken to get at least 3 solid ones.


I settled for a little pumpkin for our new flat and ended up being free as it was only £2 and taken from the entry fee. On our departure, we were given a 15% discount card for the Avon Valley Farm and you bet we took full advantage of that. Avon Valley is home to so many animals, from sheep to alpacas to reindeers as well as having kids play areas, cafes and a mile-long walk around the River Avon. I used to go to Avon Valley so much when I was little so it was so nice to have a nostalgic day out.

So as we bought our tickets we were asked whether we wanted to buy animal food but said no. Defo the biggest mistake of the day. As you walk around the park you get so close to all of the donkeys, goats and ponies that I seriously regret not buying food – they were just so freaking cute. However, when we got to the sheep enclosure there was a little machine of food next to the pen and I was potentially the biggest child there, I had so much fun feeding the sheep that I genuinely think I have the mind of a 5-year-old haha.

After a look around all of the animals and a walk around the riverside trail, we made our way home. It was such a fun day out and I can always rely on Chan for being my adventure buddy and photographer. I hope you all enjoyed reading. I just wanted to thank you all for the support on last weeks post, it is so nice to be back blogging again. 

Until next time,
