Leftover Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

An over-the-top delicious milkshake recipe using a big slice of leftover pumpkin pie (yes, the whole thing - crust & all)! It blends up in less than 5 minutes and is simple to make dairy or gluten-free if desired. If you've ever needed an excuse to bake a pumpkin pie (besides Thanksgiving) and don't have any leftover right now - this is it!

Put on your comfiest stretchy pants cause things are about to get real cozy.

Especially if you love...

1) milkshakes

2) pumpkin pie

3) burying every slice of pumpkin pie under a mound of whipped cream (the logical thing to do)

If you said yes to any of the above, then you NEED this pumpkin pie milkshake in your life ASAP.

I'm not exaggerating in the slightest when I say it's glorious. Imagine a milkshake that's uber creamy, thick, and not too sweet with plenty of vanilla bean + pumpkin pie spice flavors AND even small chunks of actual pumpkin pie. Sounds heavenly, right?

DIY Lava Rock Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet

Learn how to make an easy essential oil diffuser bracelet using inexpensive non-toxic materials like citrine stone, porous lava rock, and hemp cord. Decorate the bracelet with your favorite accent beads (I prefer wood) to make it look unique while you enjoy the aromatherapy benefits. This makes a great DIY gift for both gals and guys and is a simple enough craft project for kids to help out.  

DIY Lava Rock Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet

Ever since I shared a tutorial for how to make clay essential oil diffuser necklaces, I've been jonesing to try my hand at diffuser bracelets. Mostly because I prefer rings & bracelets over necklaces and I love the look of lava beads, which are popular for essential oil bracelets.

I'm also semi-obsessed with citrine stones right now, so I wanted to create a DIY diffuser bracelet with that as the centerpiece. Why? Citrine is a yellow and white stone that is good for drawing abundance, success, and positive energy. 

I've been wearing a wire-wrapped citrine necklace along with a turquoise stone ring on almost a daily basis for the past few years. This combo has a calming, grounding + good vibes effect! Plus, they're both gorgeous.

11 Comfort Food Recipes & Self-Care Ideas For Fall

Want to slow down and truly enjoy the fall season? Check out this inspiring list of fall-themed self-care ideas and comfort food recipes from some of my favorite blogger friends. Add a few to your weekly routine & you'll be feeling relaxed, present, and nourished in no time.

11 Comfort Food Recipes & Self-Care Ideas For Fall

Two years ago, I wrote a post called 30+ Ways to Relax When You're Feeling Stressed or Anxious. This was a month after experiencing genuine anxiety for the first time in my life. For me, those feelings stemmed from fear and worry over health issues and manifested as a rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, and a non-existent appetite.

It was both a wake-up call and a revelation to me. Time to take better care of myself emotionally (no more stuffing away all my feelings) and physically (more than just prioritizing real food).
