The Pumpkin Wardrobe: The Fall Must-Have


If there’s one thing that I can’t get enough of in the fall, it’s anything that has to do with pumpkins. I love pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin tarts, pumpkin cheesecake (one of my favourite things to bake and stuff my face with), pumpkin soup, even just pieces of pumpkin on their own are delicious. Of course, you can’t forget the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, but with amazing restraint, I’ve managed not to get one yet this year, despite passing two Starbucks on my way to work each morning (I have, however, chowed down on a pumpkin scone. Mmmmm…).

Trying to bring as much pumpkin as possible into my life has resulted in this small collection of four products:

Philosophy Pumpkin Icing 3-in-1 Shampoo, Bubble Bath and Shower Gel
This is possible the most heavenly-scented product I’ve ever had the privilege of smelling. I was at Sephora giving all the holiday-scented shower gels a sniff, but wasn’t really impressed with any of them. I’d been wanting to get Cinnamon Buns for a while, but that is available year round. It appears that The Bay has the Canadian exclusive on this product, so if you’re interested, run over there and snatch one up.. you won’t regret it!

Michael Todd True Organics Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask
The last time I placed an order for Michael Todd products, I decided to add a mini of this into my bag, and didn’t open it until today after my shower. It smells and looks exactly like the filling for a pumpkin pie – sweet, spicey deliciousness. It’s meant to be a chemical exfoliant that also moisturizes at the same time, and after the first use, I can’t say one way or another whether I like it yet, but when I put it on at first it tingled, so it felt like it was doing something!

Bath & Body Works Mason Jar Candles in Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Spiced Pumpkin Cider
We all know how good the scents are at Bath & Body Works where the candles are concerned, and though I’m a recent convert to scented candles, I decided I had to have some pumpkin-scented stuff. They had a deal on the mason jar candles, so I picked these two up. Not much to say except… go to your local Bath & Body Works and check them out before they’re gone.

What are your go-to pumpkin-scented products come fall?
