In 2014, John Oliver proclaimed that “Pumpkin Spice lattes taste like a candle tastes!” Well John, your damn right!
The colourful fall leaves are dancing, the air is crisp and temperatures are dropping. Pumpkin Spice season has arrived and every year it gets bigger. I’m sure in no time it will have it’s own official holiday along with stat pay. The Starbucks line becomes ridiculously long and their Pumpkin Spice latte is a modern day version of ‘catnip’ for women.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte has been the hot topic of so many tweets, instagram selfies & memes that there are entire pages dedicated to the hype. But why the hype? Well with being on board with any trend or seasonal favourite it makes us excited, secure and included. Looking forward to the pumpkin spice tradition makes us reminisce about passed memories and think about the new ones to come.
So pop off your Ebony & Ivory candle lid and melt away into a rustic cabin in the woods. The fire is crackling and you have your over sized knitted blanket with your favourite book. Winter is on the grey horizon and the kids are back in school, place your feet up and lay back, close your eyes, notice your mind slowly begin to unwind and take in the intoxicating scent of your pumpkin spice candle.
Now excuse me while I go light my own Pumpkin Spice candle 🖤
