I’ve been on the hunt for my signature scent ever since Ami became my perfume mentor, and I think I just found it: Pumpkin Pie Cologne from Demeter Fragrance Library. I know I like fragrances with vanilla undertones — why not toss some cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin puree into the mix? Just in case the idea of smelling like pumpkin pie in public freaks you out, the scent is also available in shower gel form, which is a bit more subtle and perfect for lathering up on Thanksgiving morning. Whip cream-scented lotion optional. [Refinery 29]

Weekend Project: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Cocktail

Make Vanilla Bourbon
So easy. So delicious. Read More »

I’m not a big fan of meals composed of Thanksgiving leftovers (my dad used to literally put all of the scraps of turkey, stuffing, green beans, and mashed potatoes in a blender and serve it as an opaque gray “holiday stew”). When it comes to cocktails, however, I’m all about getting creative with whatever ingredients you have on hand. This particular drink caught my eye because it makes use of a handful of gorgeous fresh cranberries, pairing them with ginger ale and vodka. If you have any green apples left over from pie-making this week, I think a couple thin slices of those would be another great addition. Cheers! [Book Cooker]
