Food Review: Pumpkin Spice Oreos


Last week, Oreo finally released their latest fall flavor, Pumpkin Spice, in stores! I finally managed to snag a box over the weekend at Target, cuz OMG Pumpkin Spice Oreos!! I have previously reviewed Oreo's other fall flavor, Caramel Apple (read the review), so I was greatly anticipating trying the Pumpkin Spice Oreos!

13 Horror Movies I’m Looking Forward to this Autumn


Ahhhhh autumn, my favorite time of year (as if you haven’t noticed!!)! Time for falling leaves, dropping temperatures (well, at least wishing for dropping temps here in SoCal), scary décor, Halloween, and, of course, horror movies! I love horror year-round, but there is just something special about autumn that creates the perfect atmosphere for watching horror flicks!

In past years, there haven’t been that many horror films released in the months of September, October, or November, except the Paranormal Activity films. We were starved for horror then, but this year it seems like a glut of horror films are being released these three golden months!

Here are my top 13 horror films I’m looking forward to watching this autumn, ordered by release date:

Food Review: Treeline Herb-Garlic French Style Soft Cheese


I recently had the pleasure of enjoying Parmela’s treenut cheese (review), so I thought I would expand my vegan cheese repertoire and try Treeline’s French-style soft cheese. Treeline was one of the first, if not THE first, vegan companies to offer fancy vegan soft cheese, and I've hear so many friends rave about their cheese, so I thought it was high time I tried some! Treeline is produced by The Gardener Cheese Company in Kingston, New York and is available at most Whole Foods and select natural food stores.

Food Review: Caramel Apple Twizzlers


Twizzlers are one of the “mainstream” candies that are accidentally vegan, so I was excited to see that they had a new flavor available for the Halloween season – Caramel Apple filled Twizzlers! I wasn't sure if this particular flavor would also be vegan, but after a quick scan of the ingredients it looks like the Caramel Apple Twizzlers are vegan as well!

Trader Joe's Seasonal Pumpkin Items

Trader Joe's has gone pumpkin-crazy this autumn season! They have everything from pumpkin oatmeal to hard pumpkin cider to pumpkin trees out right now! Hey, I'm not complaining, I just wish more of these items were vegan.

However, a large bulk of their seasonal pumpkin items are vegan (or, at least they appeared vegan after a quick scan of their ingredients - please correct me if I'm wrong). Here is a small sample of their pumpkin offerings this fall:

Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch 2014


Happy first day of fall! And what's better than kicking off the first day of the most wonderful season than with a visit to the pumpkin patch? Nothing, that's what!

I visited the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch, the first pumpkin patch to open near me, yesterday! It is located in the Irvine Regional Park on the foothills between Irvine and Orange. Not only was it a perfect way to kick off autumn, but the weather was gloriously gloomy to boot!

Halloween 2014 at Target

Target's Halloween Shop

I've been to multiple Target stores since my original post on their Halloween selection, and I am ecstatic to report they all seem to have their Halloween sections completely set up! Lots of items seem to be selling fast, but I'm sure they'll be re-stocking and adding even more stuff in the next week or so, too! 

When I went back on Thursday and Saturday, here are the additional items I found:

Haunt Horror "The Houses October Built" Coming this Autumn


The trailer for The Houses October Built debuted a week ago today, and I've been obsessing over this haunt-themed horror movie ever since! I mean, it combines haunted houses, Halloween, road tripping, awesome costumes, and a spooky story about the ultimate underground haunt that aims to scare people to death?! What's not to love???
