Spice Up Your Life!

Spice up your life!

Autumn is upon us, which means the yummiest flavours of the calendar are in full throttle. If you’re as obsessed with pumpkin spice as I am, then this is the list you’ve been waiting to read (expected latte in hand, thank you very much). Here’s how to inject a little pumpkin spice into your life



Get baking your own Autumn treats with pumpkin puree at Tesco’s! It’s super rare to find pretty much anything pumpkin flavoured over here (the US dominates all things pumpkin, obv), so the base ingredient to your own pumpkin pie is the ideal first step. There’s tons of recipes out there, but our favourite has to be from Simply Recipes, which uses the all-American method!

KYLIE JENNER LIP KIPS http://stylecaster.com/beauty/kylie-jenner-fall-lip-kits/

Your favourite Autumnal flavour can now stay longer on your lips than ever before. Following the most recent addition to her makeup range announced on October 12th, Kylie has released four new lip shades; Pumpkin, Moon, Spice, and Trick. Naturally the two shades we’ve bee-lined towards have been Pumpkin, a burnt orange shade, and Spice, a perfectly dark berry colour to get you a little more lip-ready for Halloween! These two gorgeous colours can be seen on the right of the image.

It would be entirely wrong to even think about pumpkin spice without screaming “CANDLES!!1!”. The scent is so essentially definitive of the season, so naturally it needs to be taken home. Love Aroma stocks the super spicy fragrance in all different sizes from Root and WoodWick, which you can browse through yourself here: https://www.lovearoma.co.uk/search/pumpkin-spice


If you really want to throw yourself into the seasonal spirit, why not just become the pumpkin? Boohoo’s spooky collection offers a multitude of pumpkin themed clothes and accessories for you to throw on your spicy self. Our personal favourite is the pumpkin dress. It’s certainly more of a spooky take on the classic PSL, but paired with a black leather jacket and some cute Chelsea boots, it instantly becomes daywear! You can find it here: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/day-dresses/hayley-pumpkin-print-halloween-bodycon-dress/invt/azz18377




Can this flavour ever go too far? The answer is no. Holland & Barrett now have the product to end all PS products. The Protein Works has released their protein-packed peanut butter in a pumpkin spice flavour, which really is the yummiest! Perfect on toast or to dip apples into, let your Autumnal taste buds go wild. Search for it in store or order online here: http://www.hollandandbarrett.com/shop/product/tpw-peanut-butter-luxe-pumpkin-spice-60005984

Like we were gonna write a whole article about pumpkin spice and not throw in what started it all… the good old Pumpkin Spice Latte. The true definition of Autumn; Starbucks’ staple cup of goodness is in stores NOW so go get them while they’re hot (extra, extra hot, no foam).

So to all you PSL-lovers or pumpkin-converters, get stocking up on the essentials of your favourite flavour before the season is over!
