This week I received a care package from a friend. It was full of Halloween themed & colored sweet stuff. Pumpkin Tart cookies from Country Ma’am, Lavender Tea Latte from Maxim, and Pumpkin Pudding Kit-Kats.
The cookies are a mix bag of vanilla chocolate chip and the pumpkin tart. Country Ma’am cookies are one of my all time favorite cookie brands. The vanilla is one of their staples but this was the first time I got to try the pumpkin. Quite good. Extra sweet and a bit rich. I heated them up for a few seconds so they seemed especially creamy.
The pumpkin pudding kit-kats were good as well. More mild in taste than the Country Ma’am pumpkin tart. These had a light sweet flavor.
I haven’t tried the lavender tea latte stick yet. It’s supposed to have a lavender and bergamot taste. I like a lot of bergamot flavored things so I have high hopes here!
I think after 10 years of blogging the river of post titles has run dry. That said, I did received 3 packages this week. All on the same day actually. All after a really hard day. Almost miraculous. :)
Tokyo Skytree on the Japan Post bag. They’ve always had a little cityscape but now it has the new addition :)
Also I really like these bags Japan Post offers. The US doesn’t have an equivalent to this unfortunately.
- owl print eco bag
- rose scented hand wash and sanitizer
- rose scented bath ball
From a friend, there’s a “bag tax” here and I always need good, sturdy eco bags. The cloth ones don’t hold up for very long actually, maybe a year? So I want to invest in more like this. Durable, washable, etc.
- Moomin tea
- marimekko bag
From Anna at hotpotcat!! Marimekko prints are so full of energy, this is my first marimekko item actually! It’s such a great size to use as a regular purse + shopper. I also already enjoyed the biscuits (biscotti) with coffee and the Moomin teas which are really good and have names like “Sweetheart” and “Moomin Mama’s Magic Potion.”
- “tea” spoon
- GREAT BRITISH TEA
- Too Faced Boudoir Eyes
From Anupa! [tiny pill message, how even possible!?] I haven’t had the teas yet (likely tomorrow morning!) but I wore the Too Faced palette today and it’s so nice. All the colors are gorgeous and work for both day and night. Plus I love when major base shades are larger than accent colors. :) I really want to play with the black shade. I’m actually… getting back… into black liner/mascara… just a little bit like half the week I wear black again & not brown. WHO AM I ANYMORE, I KNOW!
