Tea, Books, Lush & Handmade!

A couple of weekends ago I went to the Eaton Centre in Toronto, and decided that I hate malls.   At least around the holidays.  There are way too many people for me, especially since I sometimes have panic attacks in the mall when it is barely full at all.  So, I decided that I'm going to do all of my Christmas shopping online through Etsy, DavidsTea, Lush & Chapters.  Handmade items, delicious teas, yummy smelling handmade bath & body products, and books?  Okay, so I totally just described my favourite things (add in some yarn, of course!), but you can find something for everyone on your list from those stores.  And have fun shopping while doing so.

Today I'm stuck in bed with laryngitis (does anyone have a home remedy?!  It's driving me crazy, ha.  I have no voice at all.) and drinking lots of tea to hopefully cure it.  So, I figured why not put together a list of some things I'd love to get from DavidsTea... hahah! 
I'm actually drinking a mug of this right now, but I'm running dangerously low on my supply.  Haha.  I would love some more Cocomint Cream!  It's perfect.
Somehow I don't own a glass mug, but I would love to so I could see Glitter & Gold better when it's shimmering away, or the pink in Forever Nuts.  And the strainer (steeper?) that comes with their perfect mugs are the best.  No small pieces of tea floating arou anymore!  Haha.
Vanilla = one of my favourite flavours.  Orchids = my favourite flowers.  Vanilla Orchid = my new favourite tea?  I'd love to try it & find out!  
I looooove the colour of this teapot (it would look perfect with my green teapot!) and it's 45oz.  AWESOME.
This tea has mini candy canes in it!  AH.  
Right now I could totally use some Cold 911, ha!
Are you planning on going shopping in the malls this year for some Christmas presents?  Or are you sticking to mainly online shopping?


  1. We just got back from the mall and it was NUTS. Also i don't have any money so it was pointless, lol.

  2. I'm a mall shopper generally but around the holidays I only go first thing in the morning or on the weekdays. That cocomint cream sounds so good!! Hope you're feeling better soon! x

  3. I'm not really an internet shopper unless it's something I can't get locally. I am finished my Christmas shopping, and try to get it all done before others even start thinking about heading out to shop. Lol. The malls were all mine a month ago. I'm a dork.
