Fall is almost officially here and with it pumpkin spice! Pumpkin spice seemed to come early though as Starbucks announced its fall flavors, including the beloved pumpkin spice latte, earlier this month. Pumpkin spice lattes have been drawing out basic white girls for years now, (and for the first time this year, admittedly, I as well!) The craze of pumpkin spice may have started with just lattes, but it has gone soooo much further than that! From candles to every type of food imaginable, it’s EVERYWHERE!!! For some, two pumpkin spice lattes a day is enough, but for those who it isn’t, here are seven ways to literally pumpkin spice everything:
1. Pumpkin Spice Gum
When you’re not drinking your pumpkin spice latte or eating your pumpkin spice Oreos, this is perfect to keep you going! Chewing this gum in between meals or long breaks between sips allows you to be 100% pumpkin spice all of the time. Taking 2-3 at a time is recommended. Just 5 packs of this a week for the next 12 weeks and you’ll be good! (it’s certainly cheaper than smoking)
2. LIP BALM!!!
There are going to be times when you have to stop chewing and eat something. Sometimes, the food you eat won’t be pumpkin spice flavored. That’s where this bad boy comes into play! Simply apply the lip balm before *(and after) each bite and you’ll be in pumpkin spice heaven 24/7!
**(recommended not required)
3. Even The Plates!
When the lip balm won’t cut it, ensure your food tastes mildly like pumpkin spice by soaking it a plate or bowl with this dish soap. To pumpkin spice your life you have to pumpkin spice your plates! This especially helps with stronger tasting meals such as Indian food. (For scenarios involving Indian food ensure to use a pumpkin spice cleaned BOWL. This will have a higher surface area to food ratio.)
4. Bubble Up!

Granted this one says pumpkin pie, but it’s the same thing. After enjoying your pumpkin spice meal, get cozy with a nice warm PUMPKIN SPICE SHOWER!!! That’s right, what was once thought an impractical dream has now become a reality with this pumpkin spice shampoo/body wash 2 in 1.
5. Study Up!
After the shower get warmed up in bed with a good book! That’s right, it has even infected literature. But! This is what it takes to be pumpkin spice everything! You need to be thinking of it at all times!!! This murder mystery novel is a guaranteed great night in. If just one won’t satisfy your pumpkin spice needs, here’s another. (They all seem to be about murder… huh?). And if murder mysteries aren’t your thing, don’t be afraid to pull out some old recipes, read up on the history of pumpkin spice, or even change some recipes you know to add pumpkin spice! Like lasagna!!!
6. Don't Forget The Dog!

Finally, a way you can smell your dog AND have the sense of drinking coffee! While in bed reading about pumpkin spice, why not let Daisy cuddle up close to smell her. Additionally, the dog will love it and become just as addicted as everyone else has!! It’s a win-win! This shampoo will revolutionize the dog community as we know it.
If giving your dog a bath is something that hasn’t been done in years, then please do so. But if you just gave them a wash or completely disregarded the last sentence then there’s another option! Pumpkin Spice Pet Cologne!!! … yes, it is real. I really just can’t even at this point.
7. SPRAY EVERYTHING!!!
Last but not least, the go-to for all pumpkin-spice-lacking problems. Simple, just spray it! This go-to universal solution goes beyond just "rooms" as it advertises. See a wall, no a BUILDING that needs to be spiced up, SPRAY IT! See a friend that needs to get pump(kin)ed, SRAY IT! (not in their face or eyes). Are you out late bored working on homework, SPRAY IT! In all reality, it works on *everything! It will make friends appear out of nowhere, hair grow, and cause you to live forever!!!
*(results may vary)
All in all, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and you’ll be sure to make it LITERALLY everything with this list. If you follow these seven steps this fall, you will have a 100% pumpkin spiced life!
