7 Reasons Pumpkin Spice Rules Fall

Hey, everyone! Sorry I’ve been on hiatus for so long. Computer troubles + starting college = a busy life! I just published my first article as a part of my college’s Her Campus team, and I’m reposting that article here!

7 Reasons Pumpkin Spice Rules Fall

1. When pumpkin spice starts appearing, people celebrate.

The start of Semptember is known for back to school, the Green Day song “Wake Me Up When September Ends,”  and the return of the cherished Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.

2. During fall, pumpkin spice means that breakfast is never boring.

Pumpkin-flavored bagels, Frosted-Mini Wheats, Pop-Tarts, muffins, pancakes, the list goes on.

3. Pumpkin spice flavored coffee. Enough said.

Everyone knows about Starbucks, but don’t forget about Dunkin’ Donuts or even grocery-store keurig cups!

4. Pumpkin spice is equally delicious for dessert as it is for breakfast.

Pumpkin pie will always and forever be the best way to finish Thanksgiving Dinner. Or any dinner.

5.  Pumpkin spice + classic candy = an awesome combination.

Pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses, M&M’s, and candy corn are the way to a girl’s heart.

6. Pumpkin spice candles instantly make a house smell like fall.

Ah, the sweet autumn scent of artificial cinnamon and pumpkin.

7. Pumpkin spice is taking over the world as a pop culture staple, and we aren’t even sorry about it.

Only a little over a month until Halloween, and pumpkin spice lets the world celebrate every day until then.


College Has Begun 

As I get into the swing of things at college, my posting may be a little more irregular and infrequent. Grades come first! I already  have begun getting involved on campus, and I’m having a great time, but life is so busy!

Hope everyone’s back to school went well. Have a great rest of your week!

Sorority Recruitment: What I Wore

Last week, I moved into my dorm room and began the process of sorority recruitment, or rush. You can see the list of tips I rounded up on this post!

One of the most stressful parts of rush is making a good first impression, which is why picking the perfect set of outfits is so important. Typically, rush fashion starts off cute but casual and gets fancier as the week progresses. At my university, recruitment is four rounds but lasts five days because there are so many sororities that open house takes two days! For rounds one and three, dresses and skirts are preferred, and round two requires a t-shirt. For round four, or pref day, most people go classy with a favorite LBD and heels.

For many college students, fall of freshman year is Greek recruitment season. A week of waking up exorbitantly early, wearing dresses, applying layers and layers of makeup, all in an attempt to find your best friends/sorority sisters. Sound stressful to you? Same here. I haven’t gone through the process yet (two weeks left for me!) so I don’t have any advice…yet. Luckily, the Pinterest community is absolutely full of people who have been through the process and want to help you make a good impression.
