Wondering why Sir Barksalot won’t touch his dinner tonight? Or why Bing Clawsby has been super tense lately? Blame it on everyone’s zodiac obsession, but we’re looking to the stars for answers. Wild One, the makers of pretty pet essentials like sleek bowls and taupe-colored leashes, just announced pet horoscopes through its email newsletter (and we’ve never hit the “sign up” button faster).

Like we even have to list this one…Grubhub’s annual food report revealed nothing too surprising: Everyone’s still obsessed with pumpkin, and October is peak fall-flavor month.

Hard Cold Brew
First it was Pabst’s Hard Coffee. Now La Colombe, MillerCoors and Jägermeister are all hopping on the boozy coffee bandwagon. And we can see the appeal: Early tailgates (it is football season, after all), brunches, even a Friday afternoon pick-me-up. Just don’t call us when the crash-slash-hangover hits.
It’s official: Hot Girl Summer is over, and Cozy Girl Fall is here to stay. Oversize chunky sweaters, cashmere pants, fleece jackets...even Katie Holmes–approved socks with sandals: Bundling up and taking style cues from the Michelin Man is the fashion "it" girl M.O. for the next few months.
