I am SO excited for fall. As "basic" as some of these may be, here's a list of my favorite fall-ism. Pumpkin Spiced... Everything! I adore anything pumpkin spiced. I recently bought Pumpkin Spiced Baileys - it is freakin' delicious with coffee, chai tea or on ice. It's available at the BCL for $31.50. Worth it. [...]
