A surprise in the mail via Goodreads

I love getting mail, I love the surprise of opening your own mail and pulling out something new. 
I recently was sent this from the author Christina Moore. I entered a contest on Goodreads to receive this book which I was sent before it's public release to review for the author. I love helping out a upcoming author and I love reading new books so its a win - win situation for those involved. 
The book is called Beautiful Death, look for a future review or follow me on Goodreads for more. 
Thanks for reading!

Snakes and Lattes

It was my girls birthday and since we were all kinda busy but still wanted to hang for a bit. She decided to take us to this really cool restaurant on Bloor street downtown Toronto. It's called snakes and lattes. It's a really chill place were for $5 you can play any board game for as long as you want, have some lattes and kick your friends butts. Really liked it, it was fun and pretty cheap, they had hundreds of board game and the staff are down to Earth. Try this place out, you won't regret it.
Thanks for reading

Lush Christmas Collection 2013

Lush is my secret addiction and surprising not many people in Toronto actually know about it. 
I went to get a face mask only to be introduced to their new holiday winter collection and it was love at first sight.Plus I felt like spending some of my hard earned cash and treated myself and my sister to these lovelies below.

 This is the Rudolph fresh face mask and the Santa's lip scrub

The coolest part about this lip scrub which I didn't know (first lip scrub from Lush) it's all edible and it taste like cherry coke which little hearts, how bomb is that! 
Price - $8.95
Main Ingredients - cherries, dates, coconut oil 
And it's currently out of stock online!

The Rudolph face mask is very hydrating and there's a little cherry in the middle to symbolize Rudolph red nose. Isn't just adorable! This face mask is very hydrating which is exactly what I need for this Canadian winter. My face gets very dry.
Price - $6.95
Life - $ weeks
Limited edition
Uses - At least 10 or more
Main Ingredients - cucumber, lavender, oatmeal, aloe & fresh mint

Homemade Pretzels

Happy December!
It's been a very busy week and it's only going to get crazier as the terms ends and exams start. Also everything just gets a little bit more hectic with the holidays fast approaching.
On to the post!

So when those cold winter nights hit and you want something warm to eat thats not heavy and works great with tea, how about a pretzel.

My brother taught me how to make these from his cooking class and the best part you can make them just the way you like.
We made two types a garlic, herb butter pretzel and a sesame pretzel.
It takes about 10mins in the oven and the secret here is to brush some baking powder-water mixture on top to help them brown faster.

 Delicious and simple.
