Autumn Mix

Pumpkin Mugs: Pottery Barn Pumpkin Snack Bowl: Pottery Barn Pottery Barn Bark Charger: Pottery Barn Blanket: Nantucket Looms c/o 

This weekend was perfect for staying in and watching movies -- cold and rainy.  Kiel and I worked on a lot of projects around the house and tried out a couple of delicious fall recipes. We were inspired to make the Autumn mix after seeing a picture on Pinterest :) 

Here a few things to try this Fall: 

Apple Cider Floats
(Serves 1)

The perfect fall drink -- delicious and easy to make. Great for those cozy nights at home

Local Apple Cider (I always keep a half gallon in the fridge this time of year)
French Vanilla Ice Cream 
Whipped Cream 
Apple Slices
Brown Sugar (or caramel sauce) 

1. Add one scoop of ice cream to a cup and pour in the apple cider. Make sure to leave a little room at the top for the whipped cream. 
2. Cut an apple slice to garnish the rim of the cup.
4. Top with whipped cream, brown sugar, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. 
5. Put on your favorite movie and enjoy!

Autumn Mix
I don't think there is any right way to make this. Kiel and I got creative and combined a lot of our favorite snacks into one mix. I love anything that is salty, sweet with chocolate and peanut butter! It's perfect for parties or movie nights :) I plan on bringing the leftover mix to the office this week. 

Chocolate Chex
Original Chex
Chocolate Toffee Pretzels 
White Chocolate Pretzels 
Candy Corn
MallowCreme Pumpkins
Peanut M&M's
Honeycomb cereal
Reese's Piece's 
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (mini cups are ideal. We cut larger cups into wedges) 
Chocolate Chips
Peanut Putter Chips
Kettle corn
Reese's Puffs cereal 

Pumpkin Flower Vases
I cannot leave Whole foods without bringing home a bouquet of flowers. They always have the prettiest arrangements. I was excited to make a pumpkin vase with the flowers I purchased this weekend. It looks so pretty displayed on the kitchen table and would be the perfect decoration for a dinner party. 

1. Cut top off pumpkin
2. Take out seeds and hollow out as if you were making jack-o-lantern. (Bake seeds to enjoy later)
3. Fill halfway with water
4. Arrange flowers 

Halloween movie recommendations:
1. Stephen King's It
2. The Lost Boys
3. Hocus Pocus 
4. Harry Potter
5. Halloween (the original starring Jamie Lee Curtis)
6. Scream
7. Edward Scissorhands
8. The Nightmare Before Christmas
9. Teen Witch
10. Casper
11. Donnie Darko (one of my favorite movies)
12. Stranger Things (Technically not a movie but this series on Netflix is one of the best I have watched in a while.)

  21. This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back. You could contact him via email at { } or reach him on +1 (914)-517-3229. He will help you in anything.

  22. My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.
