Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Creamer

Just because “pumpkin spice season” has moved onto more peppermint pastures, doesn’t necessarily mean my taste buds have. Which is why today I’m sharing my absolute favorite recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Creamer that I recently discovered! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to channel my inner barista, but thanks to Better Home & Garden’s I’ve skipped the coffee shop lines more than a few times and kept some extra change in my pockets where it belongs! It’s 10 min prep time & long shelf life makes for a fridge staple, and one I’ll most likely keep around all year switching out the main pumpkin for a few other savory fave’s. Take a peek below for this tasty treat and visit BHG.com/pumpkincookies for some other delicious delights!

A Little Chunk

It’s that time again, the quintessential cool crisp has set in the air and it’s time to whip out the fall version of tea time…cuddled up in a BIG chunky throw and your favorite book! I’m definitely an advocate for self control… but when it comes to throw blankets I’m all for a little indulgence.

A throw blanket is basically the adult version of a baby swaddling wrap, right?! It’s a necessity for feeling completely cozy during those afternoon naps, the perfect warmth on those chilly movie nights, and the ideal accessory to change up the seasonal decor in your living room or bedroom. If you’re in search of the BIG chunky look check out some recommendations below!

Nature is Cheaper than Therapy

This statement is SO TRUE! In today’s world we get so wrapped up in our devices sometimes we forget to just log off and look up. So while we appreciate that you’re reading this post right now (thanks!), take some time today to put down your phone, move away from the screen and enjoy your surroundings! We were meant to touch, feel, hear, taste and see. Use your senses and reconnect with yourself and beautiful Mother Earth.

This vintage graphic tee is a true testament to that, and so is the brand it came from. Thanks for the reminder Folk Rebellion. Rock on 🙂
