What To Buy in September, Using Mayo to Shine Your Table & More with Our DealPros
I can't believe it's almost fall! Living in LA, we lack the four seasons so all I can go by is the really hot heatwave that comes through before we move into fall. With fall coming closer, all I can think about are pumpkins, warm soups and Halloween.
Personally, it brings up such great childhood memories. My mom making pumpkin porridge, entering into my school's annual Jack-o'-lantern contest and of course the highlight, dressing up for Halloween.
