Hi hi! Wow I honestly can’t believe how little time there is in a day. Between this blog of mine, my job during the day, school at night and somehow trying to keep up with all the relationships in my life and I don’t know find time to eat…. IT’S NUTS OVER HERE YA’LL. But thats ok, it will all be worth it when I’m a practicing esthetician with my own spa one day very soon. I mean, how exciting does that sound?! But, I just wanted to formally apologize for not posting last week. I pinkie promise I will never let it happen again, ok? Ok.

So anywhoo, one of my all time favorite things about fall & the whole Holiday season in general ( besides EVERYTHING ) is all of the fun festive coffees for sale everywhere. The thing is, I’m not a millionaire, which makes spending $5 on a fun festive coffee every morning a liiiiiittle difficult. And we all need coffee, especially on a Monday, am I right?

SO last year I was just browsing through Trader Joes ( because seriously that’s one of my favorite ways to de stress I’m not even kidding ) and I saw their cute little jar of Pumpkin Pie Spice. I just had to buy it. I started to putting it in my coffee every morning and oh my god ya’ll, it tastes just like a Pumpkin Spice Latte.


Glasses: Zenni. Kitty Cat Mug: Anthropologie ( a gift from my best friend last year! But still in stock! )

If you don’t happen to have a Trader Joes near you I’ve noticed they sell different brands of Pumpkin Pie Spice at other grocery stores like Kroger and Target as well. Or you could just make it super easy on yourself and order it on Amazon :).

Literally ya’ll, all I do is brew my coffee like normal in our coffee pot, pour cream into my mug ( we like to use heavy whipping cream or coconut creamer, it’s just so much creamier and yummier than half and half, i know it’s not very healthy but i don’t careeeee LOL ) pour in the coffee, and then sprinkle kind of an obnoxious amount of Pumpkin Pie Spice on top. Bam! Homemade PSL, basically for free.


I have more festive coffee hacks like this for winter drinks as well, so be on the lookout for those coming in a few weeks. That reminds me, like can ya’ll believe October is basically over?! What?! This year is flying by.

What are ya’lls favorite fall coffee drinks?! Have you tried the Pumpkin Pie Spice trick?
