We're only a few weeks away from fall but that doesn't stop us from buying all of the pumpkin spice things we can get our hands on while celebrating the beginning of the best season of the year. That’s right, we’re talking about Pumpkin Spice Latte season. It may be in the upper 80s outside but cranking the AC down to a crisp 65 degrees, putting on our thickest socks and pulling out our favorite sweaters from hibernation almost, ALMOST eases the hole in our basic hearts. We have to keep reminding ourselves, "Winter is... no, fall is coming.”
The best way to enjoy the PSL season is to submerge yourself in its spicy sweet essence. Here are five ways to stay sane while waiting for the second best season of the year (We're talkin’ about fall y’all).
Turn Netflix to "Fireplace for your Home" and get ready to make your living room/bedroom/honestly, the entire house an autumn wonderland. A spritz or two and you'll be transported into a cozy PSL.
Now, better than Starbucks is a bold claim but until Starbucks is open past 11PM, I want at least a second place competitor. Pair with a recording of rustling leaves while you curl up in an arm chair.
Don't think I forgot about those who are a little more health conscious. This vegan and gluten-free latte has only six ingredients so go ahead and make a few for you and your friends (or just yourself...).
Why buy a tiny container of pumpkin spice when you can make it yourself.. in bulk! Throw this bad boy in your homemade PSL, a pumpkin pie, bathe in it (don't), rub it all over your body (please don't), become it (uh). For more ideas on how to use your surplus of pumpkin spice, check out The Kitchn!
If you want to shake up your pumpkin consumption, why not try Spiced Pumpkin Pie Clif Bars (yum), Pumpkin Pie Halo Top ice cream (yummier), or just fill your fridge with bottled Starbucks PSL!!!!
