If I were a “Spice Girl” my name would be Pumpkin Spice.
That big, round, orange gourd sparks so much joy in my fall-loving heart that even all the magical Harry Potter spells can’t dampen my excitement for the season that is upon us.
All Hail The Grand Pumpkin!
To me pumpkin is anything but basic. Not only is pumpkin THE unofficial symbol of fall it’s also the taste and smell of Fall- PLUS it’s GOURD-geous burnt orange hue is also THE color of fall!
I count down the days until the seasonal products hit the shelves then I grab my favorite sweater (no matter what the temperature is) and head-out to stock up on what the season has to offer. I’ve already crunched through the leaves and did all the footwork for you!
“National Pumpkin Day” is just around the corner (October 26th), so I thought it would be the perfect time to share a few of my favorite GRAND PUMPKIN picks from Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Resort- this one-stop shopping destination will be sure to help you embrace all the “fall feels”.
Now grab your cornucopia and get ready to fill-up on this season’s spicy bounty, who knows you may just Fall in love with everything pumpkin too!
INGLOT 02M Breathable Nail Enamel Shade #628
Not only is this THE most perfect pumpkin spice shade for you to deck out your digits with this season, it’s also GOOD for your nails! Most nail polish formulas create a barrier that seals your nails and doesn’t allow oxygen (which your nails need to be healthy) to pass through. This can cause your nails to be dry, dehydrated, discolored and brittle. INGLOT’S revolutionary formula allows water and air to pass through thanks to its special ingredient – a highly advanced polymer. The product helps keep the nails in the best condition while wearing nail enamel. It’s also 4-FREE and Vegan! Grab a few for your ghoulies too.
Nectar Bath Treats
Those aren’t cookies- although they look good enough to eat- they’re bath bombs and I just LOVE a good bath bomb. Those sweet smelling bubbling bath treats can turn any frown upside down. NECTAR Bath Treats just released their Halloween collection (handmade right here in Las Vegas) which features a Candy Corn Scented PUMPKIN bath bomb and it’s fruity fusion ghost sidekick. Both products are Cruelty Free, Vegan and loaded with beneficial ingredients like detoxifying bentonite clay, moisturizing sweet almond oil and soothing Epsom salts. Stock-up grab a bushel full!
Smith & Wollensky Autumn Breeze Cocktail
This is like Pumpkin Pie, in a cup, with alcohol. Does it get any better than that?
Crafted with Uncle Nearest Whiskey and Pumpkin Butter this delicious cocktail is the perfect way to give Happy Hour a seasonal flip and the ultimate way to unwind on your shopping trip.
It gives you all those fall snuggly feels and with one of these in your hand you’ll welcome fall with open arms.
Once you’ve had a sip you won’t be able to stop thinking about this delectable cocktail which is why Smith & Wollensky shared the recipe with me so that you can mix them up at home and enjoy them all the way through November! Trust me- this little guy might beat out pumpkin pie as your Thanksgiving dessert. They even included the recipe for homemade Spiced Pumpkin Butter! When you wrap up your shopping, stop in and try it- after that you’ll definitely come back and download this recipe.
