Hauling like the Sky is Fallin'!

I do not have a shopping addiction I swear! After Boxing Day though comes something called Sidewalk Sales where stores once again, drop their prices lower and I couldn't resist picking up a few bits and bobs here and there! 

David's Tea, Lasenza, and The Body Shop 

First up! David's Tea!

I stopped by David's Tea again to try some more of their delicious concoctions and picked up Bravissimo. A herbal tea that has licorice, peppermint and chamomile that's soothing for the throat and caffeine free so you can have this tea before bed! The tea was so light I had to get a full tin and a little in a bag to get the 100 grams I asked for!

Bravissimo Tea

I thought this tea would be perfect since my current tea from David's Tea (Honey Bee) has quite a strong dose of caffeine but blech! I really didn't like the taste of Bravissimo! It's a little nicer if extremely hot and mixed with sugar and milk but the licorice in it turned me off of it. I went back to David's Tea the day after I bought it to get an exchange and picked up Birthday Cake instead. They let me keep the Bravissimo though since they can't sell used tea. Perhaps I'll grow accustomed to the licorice flavor but I was happy to get Birthday Cake. It tastes amazing! Just like cake with it's sprinkles and freeze-dried ice cream bits; definitely an enjoyable treat! It's also caffeine free so I won't suffer from insomnia if I drink it before I sleep.

Since I'm at home all the time now I think I'll be enjoying my new teas immensely! The tins from David's Tea are also really beautiful and I'm happy to add two more of them to my collection! I dislike getting tea in those little silver bags they have, they're not as visually appealing.

Adding these two rooibos and herbal teas to my tea repertoire!

Next up, The Body Shop!

Recently I've fallen in love with scent and benefits of coconut! I have the Body Shop's Coconut Body Butter and love it to bits so I also picked up the their Coconut Shower Cream! It smells exactly like the body butter  and was completely inexpensive at 10 CAD for a 750 ml Bottle! I tried it and love it! It makes my skin smell just like a dessert, not to mention coconut is very good for keeping your skin soft and hydrated! I'm even considering getting a tub of coconut oil just to remove my makeup with! I'll get to moisturize my eye area and remove the gunk off my eyelids too!

The Body Shop's Coconut Shower Cream

As for Lasenza...I'm not showing you what I got since underwear is kind of personal...XD

...and last but not least! A little book on dog care! Why would I pick up this book? BECAUSE OUR FAMILY MIGHT BE GETTING ONE!!! I really want to get a male pug and name him Fabio but pugs tend to shed like the dickens so we might need to reconsider the breed. We need to prepare ourselves and the home for a new member and this little guide should be quite helpful!


I may be doing full reviews on some of the products mentioned today! Be on the lookout for those!

Thanks for reading and ciao for now!


  1. A dog! Ahh! I'm excited for you. =D Will it be a puppy or an older dog? I would suggest getting one from the pound, normally they're house trained already and you can be saving it's life.

    1. that sounds great! Unfortunately, doesn't look like our chances for getting one are very high at the moment...maybe I won't be able to get one until I move out :(

  2. I like tea so much, too. I´m drinking about 5 - 6 mugs a day. The tea which you have bought seems really yummy.
