The Great Pumpkin Products Roundup!

These are your must have items for your next trip to the grocery store!

Well folks, it's that time of year again! As soon as your calendar turned over to September, the pumpkin spice foods started rolling out! I searched high and low, and came across a huge assortment of pumpkin spice products. Today I'm doing a round-up of my top ten favorites. These are your must-have items for your next trip to the grocery store!

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

That's right, you can now get your favorite pumpkin spice coffee drink in a bottle at the grocery store! Thank you Starbucks, for never letting us down.

Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Caramel Squares

I'll be hitting up my Target soon for these bad boys! Chocolate + pumpkin spice + caramel? I'm there!

Pumpkin Spice Cheerios

I love the idea of something so classic, having an autumn twist. Cheerios are an American favorite, and I have no doubt that these pumpkin spice ones will be a best seller!

Noosa Pumpkin Yoghurt

Thanks to my Mom's love for Noosa Yoghurt, I first tried the pumpkin flavor last fall and absolutely loved it! Think pumpkin pie meets creamy goodness.

Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice-cream

I've never met a Ben & Jerry's flavor that I didn't like, and I know that this Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor will be no exception! You can never go wrong with Ben & Jerry's.

Pumpkin + Spice Triscuit Crackers

Something about eating a pumpkin Triscuit intrigues me so much. I imagine these would be perfect paired with a creamy goat cheese, topped with a cranberry reduction. Or perhaps a nice brie cheese, and some crispy pancetta. My inner food network chef is running wild with the possibilities!

Harvest Pumpkin Tortilla Chips

This may sound a little weird, but I promise that these are some of the best tortilla chips out there! They add a little something extra to your normal chips and salsa. Speaking of chips and salsa....

Frontera Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa

Of course we need pumpkin salsa! I've yet to try this, but Frontera is my go to salsa brand, so I know anything by them will be delicious!

Alternative Baking Company Phenomenal Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Do you ever get a craving for pumpkin cookies? Look no further than these bad boys! Vegan + delicious!

Pumpkin Spice Oreos

Okay, I'll admit it- I have a secret love for Oreos. I don't even keep any in the house, because I know I'll just want to eat them all. I've heard wonderful things about these pumpkin spice Oreos though! Since these are limited edition, I think I'll have to make an exception!

What are your favorite pumpkin spice foods?

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.


I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.

I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!

If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!

One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.

When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.

For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
