Bad blogger & bargains

I've tried out some interesting new teas and organized pop-up teas at work this month. For example, last week, we had a "Christmas in July" pop-up tea where we enjoyed Santa chocolate (a Christmas gift) with Poached Pear Brulee organic black tea. But I've been too lazy to take photos. Blogger fail!

I found this charming welcome mat for $4 at Dollarama (many items are actually $1 plus). How cute are the alphabet tea sets? It's too nice to use outside so it's become an indoor mat.

My friend made me this Taiwanese iced tea. I can't recall the ingredients. It had a delicious coffee flavour...but it didn't actually contain coffee?

Last week, I was craving ice cream at work. But I didn't want to spend $5 on a tiny cup of frozen yogurt. So I bought a 1.66L tub of Breyers Cookies & Cream ice cream at Shoppers (across from the office) and had a pop-up ice cream at the office. The ice cream was on sale for only $2.99 and it fed half a dozen people on TWO consecutive days!


  1. I am glad you are enjoying your Summer time!What a pretty mat,so happy!Love ice cream too.Hugs!

  2. The mat is so pretty, Margie, and I love the verse on it, too. You are so good to your coworkers! What a great idea you had with the ice cream social, and a bargain, too!

  3. Your lovely Taiwanese friend said it's the "cassia seed" that makes the distinct flavour for this sweet tea.

  4. Pretty mat, good idea to keep it onside. Your pop up teas sound lovely

  5. Margie, your coworkers must love you! I hate it when I'm too lazy to take pictures and then I decide to blog whatever it was, and I have to make it again to take pictures!

  6. Yeah, I'd like to work with YOU haha! I've pretty much abandoned my blog for the summer. Summer is too short here to be tied to my computer and a 'to do' list lol. But I'm enjoying watching others work haha!
