Everyday luxuries

A few days ago I posted about some of the pricier items I lust over. Today I thought I might touch on the simpler things in life that I am enjoying at the moment.

T2 Melbourne Breakfast Tea


I love the hint of Vanilla that comes with this tea. It's soothing and calming. I think next time I might try Madagascan Vanilla but I have a funny feeling I might just come back to Melbourne Breakfast time and time again...I am currently using it loose but have just bought the teabags for our upcoming trip.

Macarons

They are undoubtedly the new cupcake. So many different combinations and flavours. Zumbo, the king of Macarons, is currently doing a Mont Blanc macaron (chestnut) flavour which is insanely good. Usually I am a massive fan of salted caramel and passionfruit/chocolate but really, I will try any flavour.

Belle Magazine


I love the mix of covetable and desirable items and the ability to look at other people's houses (it's the voyeur in me). I tend to find more I want to buy (or copy) in Belle than any other magazine.

Melbourne Breakfast sounds intriguing. I'm going to have to try it. Can you believe I haven't tried a macaron yet? They just look so super-sweet. Might have to look into who does the best in Melb :)

I love Melbourne Breakfast. The fact it has real - not fake - Vanilla in it really makes a difference for me. And once you try a macaron I doubt you'll go back. They are so easy to get hooked on. I have it on good authority that the cafe Liaison does really good ones, but they only bake on certain days. You didn't hear it from me...

J'adore the teas that come in those silky purses. It always seems like such a little luxury! :)

I will definitely have to try the Melbourne Breakfast Miss Kitty. I saw it the other day and wondered what it was all about! I've been enjoying the T2 Earl Grey lately and for the first time ever I bought teabags and not the loose leaf - the quality is very good :)
