It’s Pumpkin Season!


Hey everybody! Guess what season it is? Yuuuup, it’s PUMPKIN SEASON!

I look forward to fall every year simply because I get to overdose on limited edition pumpkin offerings. Last year, I went to a Pumpkin festival that is held annually here in Central Ohio. It’s taking place again this week, but I haven’t 100% decided if I’m going to go or not. (I’m definitely going to see Carrie, though!)

If I don’t make it, I will have had enough other Pumpkin-flavored products to completely tide me over for the season.

As pictured above, I’ve already gotten my hands on some Limited items from Pop Tarts and Eggos. The Pop Tarts are literally so good, that next time I get paid, I am stocking up on them. My current box is good until July 2014. I think I’ll be ok hoarding a few more boxes. And the Eggos are delish as well! But I won’t be stocking up because I know how to use Bisquick to create my own using Libby’s Pumpkin or a related item that’s available year round.

I haven’t grabbed a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard yet. I went at the end of September and they told me it’d be back in October. Well, it’s October!

I’ve heard Trader Joe’s is a treasure trove of delicious Pumpkin items, including Pumpkin Bread Mix, Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Ravioli, and even Pumpkin Macarons! So I will have to make a special trip and see for myself. (Besides I need more Cookie Butter)

I’ve been looking for the Limited Edition Yoplait (Light) Pumpkin Pie yogurt, but I’m not sure it really exists. And I think this despite seeing advertising and pics of it on Twitter. They even have a special page for it on their website. I’ve checked all the available stores in my area and nothing! I live in the 15th largest city in the country. I figure it should be around here somewhere, right? Well, someone on my Facebook page, directed me to the Yoplait’s product locator page, and voila! Now I know where, in my city, to go to get these. I’m going in a few hours!

Anyway, I’m enjoying my fall, so far, thanks to my #ALLPUMPKINEVERYTHING lifestyle. Is anyone else as obsessed as I am?

Will I Regret Yearning for Jason Wu?

Jason Wu for Target

So, you may or may not have heard that Target has teamed with another celebrity designer and will release a special, limited edition line beginning tomorrow. This time around that designer is Jason Wu. (Probably known by most non-fashionistas as the man who designed Michelle Obama’s inauguration dress back in 2008).

Target had another release, for Missoni, back in the fall and it was utter chaos. I’m not into the Missoni look (far too crazy for my fashion tastes), but from all accounts, pandemonium isn’t even a strong enough word for how that release went off. People camped out for hours, fought each other in-store, and the website crashed many, many times before ultimately selling out of items. A lot of the people who managed to get their hands on the products, first, only did so for eBay resale purposes. In doing so, they robbed real shoppers of the opportunity to buy for the Target price. eBay mark up was often times twice or even 3 times as much. Buying an item from the real Missoni line would be cheaper, thus defeating the purpose of the Target partnership. Basically, it was a hot ass mess!

First Impressions: Revlon’s ‘Spice It Up’ 2011 Holiday Line

Revlon FTW

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about makeup (I know, what’s wrong with me), so here’s one for the masses!

I was at the grocery store today, and like any other trip, I just had to walk past the makeup aisles to see if there was anything new. And of course there was! My favorite drugstore brand, Revlon, had a nice display up advertising their “Spice It Up” Holiday line.

Now, usually my grocery store doesn’t get the special displays and limited edition products, so I was already pleasantly surprised. Then I saw it… the beautiful purple shaded Colorburst lipgloss. I’d been on the hunt for a drugstore purple lip color (still looking for Maybelline’s ColorSensational The Jewels Limited Edition lipstick in Amethyst Ablaze), so when I saw this gloss, officially named Decadent, there was no way I was leaving the store without my own tube!

I was already a Revlon Colorburst disciple. I have 10 lipsticks already, and had 3 of the relatively new glosses. Today, I added 2 more glosses to my collection; the aforementioned Decadent as well as a sparkly clear shade called “Chilled Frappe”. If you’re familiar with the Superlustrous line, it favors “Shine City” without any hint of pink (look at my pic above).
