september favorites I howsweeteats

A list of all the things I loved in September! xo


This copycat guacamole greens salad. This is one of the best at-home salads I’ve ever made. It’s ridiculously good and if you love the Sweetgreen version, you’ll love this. I add corn to mine and keep everything else the same, except I chop the heck out of it. I chop everything super small (even the lettuce) and it’s just so good. The dressing is the best. It’s incredible.

Pumpkin Spice it Up Bread from ALDI. I just found this in the last week but HAVE to include it, because it’s amazing. It reminds me of old-school cinnamon swirl bread, but pumpkin. It’s delicious, the kids love it, and even though I don’t generally lose my mind over pumpkin things, this it the business.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew (with extra foam!!). So it’s funny that I’m talking about ANOTHER pumpkin thing. This is a repeat from last month because I am fully obsessed with this drink. I wish I could get it every day. I order it with extra foam and it’s even better.


American Royals. This was such a GOOD fun read. I absolutely loved it.

Fleabag, season 2. I liked season one of Fleabag but I LOVED season two. Oh my gosh. I am so upset that there won’t be a third! I’ve already watched it over again. It was so, so good.

Bad on Paper Podcast. Lacy turned me on to this podcast and I can’t stop listening. I love them, they love to read, and it’s basically girl talk.

On another note, we are still LOVING and listening to Lover on repeat. All day, every day. The kids love it.


GreenPan x Food 52 Pans. These are by far the best pans I have ever cooked on. I’ve had multiple greenpans over the years but splurged and bought these ones last month. I am in love with them. I actually bought every single pan they offer (the oval roasting one is gorgeous!). They are so pretty but also incredible on the stove top. Love ’em!

MacKenzie-Childs Spooky Pumpkins. I’ve had these since 2016 when I visited the MC headquarters and they are my favorite fall decor! Mine say “beware,” but I like these spooky ones every better. After Halloween, I just turn them around so you don’t see the words, making them a great item to use the whole season. These make me so happy!

Nest Pumpkin Chai candle. I used to be a crazy candle lady (you know, instead of a crazy cat lady?), but over the last few years I had lost a lot of my candle love. There are very few I enjoy anymore, but this is one of them. I always buy one at the end of every season on sale to have in September… and let’s be real – August. Burning through one already and this is the best scent ever.

Mrs Meyers Apple Cider Hand Soap. Surprise surprise! But not really. I get this every year and you don’t even want to know how many I stocked up on. I tend to use this through the new year and skip over all the pine scented hand soaps.


Halogen V Neck Long Sleeve Shirt. I was SO EXCITED to find my favorite short sleeve top in a long sleeve, v neck version! Woohoo! You know I’ve loved the t-shirt version for years. This is exactly like it. Also runs big like the t-shirt so keep in mind!

Alice and Olivia Raja Leopard Print Dress. Between my obsession with black, leopard print and neon, this dress was MADE FOR ME. I basically want everything that alice and olivia is making this season. It’s just all so pricey that I usually get ONE thing per year, and this is it. Love it.

L’AGENCE ankle zip black jeans. Another win for trunk club! These jeans came in my box last month and I am loving them. Actually, I love this brand right now! I got a pair of regular blue jeans by the brand in my trunk a few months ago and they were also good. But these black ones are fantastic. I like them just as much (if not more) than my black good american jeans.

APL neon pink slip-on sneakers. I’ve regularly stalked the APL website for a few years and especially after getting a pair of black slip-ons. While I’ve had these for a few months, I haven’t wanted to wear them that much because I don’t want them to get dirty. Ha! But I can’t help it, they might be my most favorite ever – and you know what a crazy person I am over my adidas ultraboosts. I love these with black and with army green. Not to mention, they are so super comfortable. I wouldn’t run or do high-intensity workouts in these, but they are great for everything else.
