Happy October! + Your Yearly Reminder To Wash Your PUmpkins

Hi my beautiful friends! Happy October!!! After a lot of thought, I think I’ve officially decided October is my favorite month. It means changing leaves, cozy nights in, spooky movies, cooler weather and pumpkins. All the pumpkins!

Speaking of pumpkins… I’m re-sharing a secret I learned last year with you today! If you’re the proud owner of 48 pumpkins like I am, you’ll want to keep reading!

But before we get to it, I just wanted to say sorry that I missed the last few days! We’ve had a lot going this week, but hopefully next week will slow down a bit! Oh… and I’m like actually old now. So that’s fun. (How is it that birthdays get worse as you get older? HAHA)

A few of the pictures in today’s post are from my birthday weekend! All I wanted to do was get cider and donuts and watch Hocus Pocus! So that’s exactly what we did. The cider place we went to was also a farm with a bunch of pumpkins and it was the cutest!! If you’re in the Metro Detroit area, check out Three Cedars Farm in Northville. You won’t be disappointed!

Alright loves. I’m signing off up here just in case you’ve already read this post and don’t need a refresher 🙂 If not, enjoy! I hope you have the best weekends! I’ll talk to you soon 🙂


PS… I can say now that this trick totally works! My pumpkins stayed beautiful until Thanksgiving when the neighborhood squirrels had a feast of their own 😂

Hi Friends! I’m back today with a super quick post that I know is going to come in handy all season long!

If you’re anything like me (aka Basic AF), you’ve been ready to buy pumpkins, pull out your cozy sweaters, and live your best life since August. (Cuz Fall is a state of mind. FYI.)

I wasn’t planning on buying any pumpkins until October, when the weather in Michigan chills out. Literally. But, while watching Instagram stories last weekend, I saw TWO of my favorite influencers share that they picked up their pumpkins and started decorating their porches. Both live in the same climate I do… so I was pretty shocked. And apparently so was everyone else, because later that night they both shared this tip that I had ZERO idea existed.

You ready to be mind blown???

The secret to keeping your pumpkins from rotting and looking pretty all season long is….


I’m not even kidding! So I grabbed a scrubby and some Dawn and got to work! Have you tried this trick before ? Does it actually keep them from rotting?! Let me know in the comment below!

So, take this piece of knowledge with you to the pumpkin patch this weekend. That way, you don’t have to restrain yourself from buying all the pumpkins 🙂

Alright my loves. I’m signing off for the day. I’m SO ready for it to be the weekend! Is it Friday yet??
