Is anyone else sad that October is over? We still have Halloween to look forward to tomorrow - although celebrating looks a little different - but the crisp fall air is quickly moving to winter. Luckily, October was an amazing month and this month's favourites definitely helped me enjoy it even more. Nothing beats a cozy fall night, wrapped in blankets, enjoying a festive fall beverage, and enjoying a show that makes you belly laugh.
I feel very late to this party, but these syrups have forever changed my morning drink game. Previously, I would go to Starbucks when I wanted something with vanilla, or pumpkin, or peppermint, or what have you. And at $7 a drink for a venti - ya girl was not having it. Coincidentally, I ended up at World Market to look at end tables, and it wouldn't be a full trip without perusing their incredible food display. And in the back was a ginormous shelf full of Torani syrups in every flavour imaginable! I ended up picking a vanilla, pumpkin, salted caramel, and cinnamon vanilla for no other reason than they sounded delicious. And they were! I have been adding these syrups to my morning drinks ever since and I'm practically a barista now. Personal favourites have included putting pumpkin in my chai, salted caramel in my hot cocoa, and vanilla in my Earl Grey. And the little pumps you can buy for the bottles complete the setup!
Anthropologie Morgan Agate Coasters
First off, yes I did mostly buy these coasters because my name is Morgan, but they are also the most beautiful coasters I will ever own. Each coaster is unique, and it's hard to choose which one I love best. Bursts of bright white and dark tortoise bring a pop to the sandy coloured agate, and the marble bottom of each looks gorgeous from the side. They are also nice and big, perfect for my larger mugs. Anthropologie has never let me down, and these coasters are no exception.
Another party I was late to, but how did no one tell me that Letterkenny is one of the funniest shows ever made? At first glance, I did not think I would like a 20-minute sitcom about rural life. I pretty much lived that in high school. But the show is so much more. The quick-witted fast pace of the show keeps it moving along, and the character development is spot on. Wayne might be my favourite, with Jonesy and Reilly being a very close second. The dialogue is beyond quotable (I will be saying "pitter patter, let's get at 'er" for the rest of my life). If you're looking to laugh - especially in these stressful times - you need to be watching Letterkenny.
