Fall is Coming

Yesterday I received one of my favourite yearly emails - the Davids Tea Fall Collection! This is easily my favourite collection they have ever done, from the tea flavours to the packaging to the mug designs.

Woodland Bear seems to be the theme of the packaging and mug designs and I'm loving it all. The urge to buy this travel mug is strong and I might have to add a new mug to my already overflowing collection.

The tea flavours sound amazing too:
- Pumpkin Chai
- Blueberry Muffin
- Carrot Cupcake
- Pom Cider
- Nutty Granola Crunch

Pumpkin Chai comes out every year at Davids Tea and it's by far one of my favourite teas. I drink it all year round because I buy enough at the end of winter to get me through until it's out again. But I'm so curious to try the Carrot Cupcake and Pom Cider. They sound right up my alley.

Once I try some of the new teas I'll be sure to report back on how they are!

S'mores Recipes

Today is the last day of IGGPPCamp (which you can read about here) and in celebration of it I made a couple of s'mores recipes recently.

A recipe for S'mores French Toast was shared on the IGGPPC blog a few days ago. You can find the recipe here. I unfortunately wasn't able to join in the bake-along for it yesterday so I made the french toast the other day when both Adam and myself were off work.

Holy crap, it's incredible! If you like s'mores and french toast please do yourself a favour and try this recipe out!

The second recipe I made was a s'mores dip. I shared the recipe on the IGGPPC blog today. You can check out the recipe here. It was incredibly easy to make and so good!

Did you participate in any #IGGPPCamp activities this past weekend? As usual it was super fun and it's a little sad that it's over for the year.

My Life In Photos

I know I say it every month but August has gone by way too quick. It's probably because I've been incredibly busy and every free moment is accounted for in some way (sewing, social plans, appointments, Pokemon). After Fan Expo I plan on spending a week relaxing. I will go to work and come home to lounge on the couch. No plans, no chores, no errands.

These are my photos from the last couple of weeks...

The turtles are getting big.

The cats have claimed the guest room. Logan has taken to sleeping right on the pillows.

One of my favourite places this Summer - Moonlight Beach.

How I spend most evenings: sewing.

I saw Gwen Stefani in concert in Toronto at the beginning of the month. It was an incredible night and she was absolutely amazing.

My face most days when I make my to-do list. Give me all the caffeine to get through the next couple of weeks!
