Coconut London Fog with Lavender Simple Syrup

Happy Autumn! What better way to kick off the new season than with a cozy drink recipe! We love London Fogs and this one is tasty. The coconut milk gives it quite a different flavour, but it's still extremely delicious. I'm really excited to have this jar of lavender earl grey simple syrup in my fridge, London Fogs all week, I may even try a little in my coffee, I'll let you know how that goes ;)

We made the simple syrup by adding to a small saucepan 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar (I used coconut sugar, because it was the only sugar I had in my house! I guess that's a good thing.) Add 2 Tbsp of earl grey tea and 1 tsp of lavender. 

Bring to a boil, let it boil for a few minutes and then turn the heat to low and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Strain and pour into a sealed jar and store it for about 2 weeks. 

*Tip* I couldn't find anything to strain it with, so I poured it into my aeropress and strained it that way, it totally worked, a french press would work too,

I steeped 1/2 a cup of earl grey tea, and then added 1 tsp of the simple syrup. Fill the rest of the mug with some warm milk of your choice. This beverage tastes best when enjoyed with donuts and a good book, promise.

Cozy Corner with Article

We are a bit obsessed with this corner of the studio. For a few months we've been wanting a fresh and bright look for this space and we finally made it happen. We had a navy blue sofa and a dark wood coffee table and as soon as we switched it out with this gorgeous light pink one, and took out everything that was darker (lamp, coffee table, etc) it's completely transformed! The soft marble and light wood totally complement the room and match everything else so much better. It's insanely cozy and inviting, a place we're so excited to spend a lot more time in. This Summer has been crazy and we haven't spent too many days here working and creating content. We feel so inspired and at home here now, choosing pieces we love makes such a big difference in where we want to spend our time. 

We Craigslist-ed this cozy wicker chair, it's exactly what we've been looking for ever since we moved into this space! 

Dried Eucalyptus and candles burning make this room all the cozier, it gets so warm here on sunny days with the big south facing windows. We have lots of plants which are growing taller and longer by the day! 

I've had a lot of people ask me about this couch! We ordered it from Article after eyeing it for quite a while. A lot of people asked about ordering it online, obviously, it's a big decision because you'd think a couch is something you want to sit on it, feel, see in person, before making a big commitment. Article does a 30 day guarantee, if you aren't happy with it - they will pick it up and give you a full refund. We had a great experience ordering it, and it's comfy as heck, and will be a part of our lives for quite some time ;) needless to say, we really love it and are both looking at which ones we want for our homes in the future. I would definitely order from them again!
