Pumpkin Spiced Up


A few weeks ago I tweeted something about wanting to start a second blog based entirely around all things pumpkin spice. It was a joke, but people flipped out with excitement. Because they feel that strongly about the combo. I’m not sure any flavor pairing welcomes a season like pumpkin spice does with fall. Think about it, the arrival of the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks is practically a national holiday! (It really should be.) Click on the image to go to the recipe and source.

Papillon Belle

The average butterfly only lives between 1 and 4 weeks, but Audrey Botha has found a way to immortalize them. The butterflies used in her collection are sourced from farming projects all over the world and are bred in a sustainable manner. By purchasing jewelry from Papillon Belle, you are not only helping the environment, you are also providing employment for the families in third world countries who breed and raise these delicate creatures. Love that.



Things that look like one thing but are actually another? Some of my favorites. The CuppaCan is a double-walled porcelain coffee cup shaped like an aluminum can. It even has a silicone lid to complete the illusion.



They were selling these trick or treating bags during NYFW and I thought they were fantastic both in the looks and cause department. Constructed from FEED’s signature burlap, each bag generates funding to help UNICEF provide nutritious meals to children in developing countries so they can lead happy, healthy lives.


Brush Vase

I was straightening up my desk with it’s many pen, pencil, and paintbrush cups this morning when I remembered this Brush Vase by Harry Allen that I’d seen. Its intended use is to hold brushes, but an insert to turn it into a flower vase is included. (via Wantist)
