A Special Spot in Astoria Oregon

DSCN3718

Coffee Girl located on Pier 39 in Astoria, Oregon was recommend to me by a fellow homeschooler and blogging friend I know through Facebook! I love connecting with people and finding out about neat places to visit! I had a great experience visiting this place with my family! We almost missed getting coffee though as Coffee Girl is open early in the morning and closes late afternoon (4pm).  If you plan on going, please keep that in mind. Continue reading

DSCN0989

The Francois et Mimi Vintage Double Wall French Press embodies all things vintage. It’s quite elegant in design and offers a bit sophistication when being used or set out on display. But looks aside, this French Press is fully functional and preforms well whether for making coarsely ground coffee, loose-leaf tea, or any other warm beverage of choice. Continue reading

International Delight® Creamers {Review}

14382342097534899459There’s a chill in the air and the Autumn season is in full swing. When it’s cool out I’m one for having many more warm beverages such as coffee or hot chocolate. It seems everywhere I look whether around me or through social media outlets online people are sharing or talking about their flavored holiday drinks of choice.

50031303795563717726 I have my favorite flavored coffees from known chains but getting those tends to add up a quite a bit over time. Since I’m on a budget, I prefer making my own coffee drinks to save money and I’ve learned my own concoctions can be just as good with the right creamers!

Over the last month or so, I was given the opportunity to try out the flavored creamers by International Delight through BzzAgent. I was pretty happy to find these in my local grocery stores with ease and thrilled with the variety of seasonal flavors such as peppermint, sugar cookies, gingerbread, and several more.

I’ve been using the Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer by International Delight quiet a bit. I’ve discovered that it’s not only good in my coffee but in my hot chocolate as well! It smells good and adds a pumpkin spice taste that’s not overly sweet or that overpowers the taste of the coffee. There’s sugar free and fat free options available as well. I tried the regular option.
P1160333The Gingerbread is very good as well! It doesn’t have a bite like some gingerbread flavors often do. It’s especially good in hot chocolate!

Overall, I’m eager to try the other seasonal flavors too, especially the Peppermint Chocolate Truffle! These creamers are affordable and good option for flavoring your coffee up during this season!
