It’s September! And even though it’s still 80 degrees and humid here in Hong Kong, I can’t help but secretly be super excited for fall. I mentally consider seasons to have arrived probably way earlier than most normal people. Growing up, my mom used to put out different holiday decorations each month. So following my birthday on August 30th, she’d break out the pumpkins, autumn leaf garlands, and fall hand towels. I hope you’re on board with me here with my 6 tips for how to start properly celebrating fall!

I’ve decided that once a month I’m going to do a ‘link love’ sharing my favorite recipes and articles that grab my attention. I think this will be a fun way to showcase some of my other fellow plant-based bloggers, keep my creative juices flowing, and bring a little pleasant change to the blog! To start it off, I’m totally drooling over these pecan praline bars with salted chocolate by Emily who was one of the lovely ladies that first inspired me to start my blog.
I’m really on a high right now, because I just bought the cutest little pumpkins today. I walked into the grocery store on a mission for some canned pumpkin (for some vegan pumpkin donuts, recipe coming soon so stay tuned!). The first thing that caught my eye was a little pumpkin display with small and mini pumpkins. Sure, this was no pumpkin patch like I would happily have gone to in the States to hand-pick my own pumpkin. But I’ll take what I can get, so I picked out the biggest pumpkin they had and an assortment of small orange & white ones. I’ve decided since it’s bound to be an untraditional Halloween here in Hong Kong, I might as well make some unconventional, cute DIY pumpkins!
