Today I wore my new triple strap flats from Goldenponies. I was so happy when I saw that Erandi was making these! I got them in white because they reminded me of the famous Chloé triple strap heels. So cute.
I got a haircut at a new salon that opened up in my neighbourhood this week: The Proudest Pony! After I saw the name, I knew I had to try it out. I usually go to the Aveda Academy since it's so cheap, but I'm happy to spend a little more to be within walking distance of some lovely ladies who can trim my bangs for me! I can't be bothered to go out to King & Jarvis to trim my bangs & usually end up massacring them at the bathroom sink -- I am no Erin Fetherston. Anyhow, I just got a straightforward trim, but I'm very happy with it.
Their sign is amazing.
And just to make it a triple, here's a recent picture of my little Pony, Oreo's greatest nemesis.
If only I had visited Magic Pony today! Then it would have been a quadruple.
These pictures were taken with The Impossible Project's PX 70 Color Shade film (a work in progress!) & the SX-70.
Jane Flanagan: Haha, celebrities ruin EVERYTHING! Silly tea company.
jen jafarzadeh: Thank you! I'm learning to love Rooibos myself.
Melinda Josie: Oh, how nice! I haven't tried the Earl Grey Cream although I really want to! I love Earl Grey and of course the addition of the word "cream" makes it so much more appealing. Can't wait to get my mitts on Patisserie again!
oaklandetsuko: Oh, it's so nice that you have a tea tradition! I just love the descriptions. It's such a delightful world of flavour!
broadcast.poulet: I hope you enjoyed your visit to Tealish, if you made it out!
Ringo, have a banana!: Thanks! I'm glad you like it! Oh no, that's too bad! Maybe there's an awesome caffeine-free tea out there for you.
thriftingvignettist: Thanks! Hey, Lipton's not so bad.
Marie Bee: Oh, cool! I guess ordering it online can get pricey. Maybe there's a local place that is similar! Thanks for the Rishi Tea link, I think I can get that here.
Maggie: So it turns out that chocolate tea isn't really the substitute I had hoped it would be, but after drinking nice teas for a few days the mocha I had today tasted kind of gross! I thought I'd get one as an end of the week treat, but it just went all wrong. Still, chocolate tea is tasty!
nath: I didn't like tea for so long! I understand. Hmm, maybe I will email you! That is very sweet of you, thank you!
kenzie: I had that problem for a long time -- you read these descriptions and then the tea never lives up to them! It's taken some time for me to come around to tea. I honestly think that a lot of it is an acquired taste. My parents aren't tea-drinkers so I didn't have it as a cultural thing. I hope you like the Rooibos!
Marinka: The walnut one is so good!
Poke Salad Annie: Thanks! Loose leaf is a beautiful thing!
Sarah: Oh yes, I love almond milk! That's what I put in my tea. Unsweetened vanilla almond milk is my favourite. I love Lady Grey & Earl Grey as well. I'm glad you liked the post!
Summer: English Breakfast with a wee bit of sugar and milk is a classic! So delicious!
Terri Coles: Oh yum, that sounds really good. I think it's Sushi Island, the place in Yorkville -- their green tea is so good, slightly nutty. I wonder if it has brown rice in it. It sounds like you really know your tea! Maybe you mean the Read My Lips blend at David's. I was interested in that one but the peppery note kind of turned me off. It's not a flavour that I love, unfortunately!
julie: Oh yes, cream Earl Grey is on the list! Next time.
Caitlin: Thank you! And hey, whatever works! There is nothing wrong with that!
Lexie, Little Boat: Oh, I agree! I love the smell. It doesn't taste how it smells!
jen: I'm glad you like it! I love hearing about people's little tea rituals -- it's a nice peek into someone else's life, I think!
Sara: They don't really taste like you would think they would taste, but they're still tasty! Haha maybe not the best endorsement.
Hello Lindello: I keep meaning to try the Harney & Sons Tea -- the tins are so beautiful! I'll look out for the Paris one.
Stephanie: I'll have to try Genmaicha. Oh, that White Malibu sounds so good, as does White Peony... man, these names are so excellent! Sometimes I try things just based on the name.
Miss Cris: Hm, turns out the Love Tea #7 wasn't one of my favourites. Not sure why, I'll have to revisit it. That tea shop sounds really lovely! I'll keep it in mind. I read some stuff on Chowhound from tea lovers calling David's "gimmicky," but it works for me! I can't help it -- I always leave there with multiple 50g packs.
sunshine by sara: Whatever works & whatever you find delicious! English Breakfast is one of my favourites as well.
Amy: Ha! Evening in Missoula sounds delicious (I looked up the description).
k: Dry Desert Lime? That sounds incredible. There is something so special about a loose leaf tea! Those tins and glass jars make me think of magic & apothecaries I've only seen in photographs.
sarah: Thank you! Hey, so local honey works like that? I had no idea! I should try that. I think that cream vanilla teas are easy to come by, especially if you have a good tea shop nearby! So delicious.
Bantik: Thanks so much!
sew nancy: Ha, thanks! Oh, I love the idea of lingering over tea. I'm sure it isn't easy with little ones around! I hope you get to do it more often.
erica-knits: Ha, thanks! I took them in maybe 10 minutes before work, making a small mess on the coffee table. I bought some Pumpkin Chai today and yes! Incredible! So flavourful! Glitter and Gold sounds amazing. I don't even know what's in it but the name is great. I think I went to sniff Dulce & Banana and it had chamomile in it (maybe?). Not a fan of the chamomile, sadly.
Sanne: After you mentioned cinnamon tea I tried to find some! I hadn't heard of it before. I managed to find one, and I'm looking forward to trying it. Thank you!
lark + linen: Thank you! Oh and yes Tealish is a lovely little shop. I think it was started by a couple and they just have the one shop at the moment. Tiny & amazing!
vanessa joie: Oh, you're not missing out! There's still lots of time for new discoveries!
Cassidy: Yes! I hope you can find some to try it!
