Dunkin' Donuts Holiday Cup

I'm fully aware that we're not even done with October yet - but I got coffee at Dunkin' Donuts yesterday and love their holiday cup design this year!  The little doughnut snowflakes and wreath especially are too cute.  Since it's been pretty chilly here recently it feels more like we're getting closer to the holiday season with these festive cups!

Shake Shack - Pumpkin Shake

What better way to get fully immersed in the fall spirit than a delicious pumpkin shake from Shake Shack?  

This shake consists of a "vanilla frozen custard blended with real pumpkin, marshmallow, cinnamon, and nutmeg and topped with toasted pumpkin seeds".  I love the extra texture and decoration of the toasted pumpkin seeds on top, and that the pumpkin flavor isn't a super strong pumpkin pie-like flavor.  This shake is available through the end of October, so be sure to head over soon if you want to try it out!

Sophie & Lili - Sweater Weather Candle

As soon as I saw this fall-themed wood wick candle on Sophie & Lili's Instagram account, I knew I had to have it!  I pre-ordered this item and received it in the mail yesterday - it's even cuter in person! 

The packaging itself is right up my alley and I am definitely considering keeping the box just for the label, haha.  The candle is a nice sized wood wick candle and smells like apples and cinnamon - so good!  The glass candle container will be a cute storage jar after I am done burning the candle as well.  She also has a few holiday-themed candles available for pre-order as well if you're looking for some great holiday gifts.

Piketoberfest at Pike & Rose

Yesterday was Pike and Rose's annual Piketoberfest, and it was a great day to celebrate fall!  There were lots of people enjoying the festival right when it started, and the crowd kept getting bigger as the afternoon went on.  Of course one of my main objectives was getting some of Sunday Morning Bakehouse's soft pretzels - so soft and delicious! Lots of stores from the area participated with food and giveaways, as well as live music and kids' activities.  I hope they continue to host fun events like this throughout the year!
