Pumpkin Everything! Get Ready for Fall with Fun Pumpkin-Themed Items

It’s official: Autumn is finally here! It’s time to bring out those cute sweaters and get ready for some wonderful, cool weather. This fall, ‘tis the season for pumpkin-themed everything. From pumpkin-flavored coffee to pumpkin-colored fall fashion trends, we have the latest scoop on what’s hot to get you excited for this season. We’ll help you kick those summer blues away with these pumpkin-themed items.


Pumpkin Spice Latte

A day doesn’t go by in the past week where I haven’t seen someone upload a picture of this drink on Instagram from Starbucks. There’s a good reason why Instagrammers are constantly uploading this drink – it’s absolutely delicious. Made with espresso, pumpkin-flavored syrup and topped off with some whipped cream, Starbucks brings their Pumpkin Spice Latte around only during this season, so get it while it lasts! If you’re more of a tea lover (I’m a fan of both) or want that same pumpkin taste without the calories, try their Dirty Soy Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte: a tall size latte only contains 180 calories, but still has that sweet fall flavor!

Pumpkin Fragrances/Candles
Want to spice up your life? Pumpkin fragrances bring a flavorful aroma into your house and leave a lasting scent on your skin. Plus, the smell of pumpkin can surprisingly turn your guy on. In a study, 40 percent of men were aroused by the smell of this fall scent. Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin is a must-have sensual fragrance. Want to give your apartment a long lasting pumpkin scent? Try Yankee Candle’s Pumpkin Patch or Pumpkin Butter cream; these candles are great for the living room or for your own room!

Pumpkin Orange Fashion Trend
Fashion alert! Orange is the new black for fall. This season, vitalize your wardrobe with orange clothes, accessories and shoes. The great thing about this color is there are different shades of orange, which creates endless possibilities for fashion. Remember when wearing this color to accentuate with neutrals; orange is a very bold color and tends to brighten and overtake an outfit.


Pumpkin Cake Pops and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing beats homemade chocolate chip cookies, except maybe if you add a little pumpkin to them! These treats are not only delicious, but also easy and fun to bake. Impress your friends with these cute and tasty homemade recipes. These pumpkin cake pops and pumpkin chocolate chip recipes can be found at http://foodnetwork.com.

Orange Colored Eye Shadow
Orange is a great color to make your eyes pop! Go for a pale orange eye shadow with a dash of shimmer to make green and blue eyes glimmer. Remember when wearing this color to go lighter on your blush and accentuate the orange eye shadow with dark brown or black eyeliner and mascara. Two of my favorite orange eye shadows are Jezebal by Stila or Amber Gold by Mac.

Pumpkin Seeds
Looking for a healthy snack? Head to your nearest store and pick up some pumpkin seeds, or even better, buy a pumpkin and bake your own that are in it! Although they are high in calories, pumpkin seeds contain tons of healthy minerals like phosphorous, magnesium, iron and copper. They also contain a good amount of protein.

Have some fun this fall with pumpkin-inspired everything. Happy Harvest, collegiettes!
