Do you like to think of yourself as a hip lady who doesn’t just give in to silly little trends that are way way overdone? Me too. But are you also a lady that loves to drink yummy drinks, do cozy things, and has a seriously bad caffeine addiction? ME TOO. This fall, you may find yourself holding back from daily PSL runs to Starbucks for two reasons: you are too embarrassed* or you are too poor**. I’m here for you. This pumpkin spice syrup is super easy to make, it has reeeeeeal pumpkin in it, and Amy even liked it a little and she hates coffee. Mix ~2 tablespoons into your morning coffee for a treat that tastes naturally sweet, but not too sweet, with the perfect amount of pumpkin & spices.
*don’t be embarrassed, girl, you do you.
**if you have a daily $10 coffee fund, please dm me so we can talk about investing just a few of your beaucoup bucks towards a good cause, aka arley cakes.
