See Ya Summer

So I know it's been fall for an entire week now, but I just have to give one last ode to Summer <3 Mostly because I found these photos I forgot about from one of our last nights in Maui, and wanted to share a few! 

We had just gotten back from dinner and it was a stormy night. It was just clearing up but the sky was doing something eerie and the water was just so tempting that Lindsay and I both just jumped in! The waves were more intense than normal too, it was just a fun time, hanging with the turtles napping on the sandy beach. Oh, what a marvelous time that trip was, hard to believe it was 4 months ago!

We also have been wanting to share about our lack of posting on the blog lately! We went into the fall with goals of getting back to our consistent 5-days-a-week content, but we have just been b u s y. The blog is our main priority, but also, we only want to post quality content. We have lots of fun posts, DIY's and recipes we've been scheming and working on that we can't wait to share with you! 

We're just catching up on setting up our studio for fall, and being away in LA last week! We're going to start sharing about it on Monday, so stay tuned. Hollywood with Pink House was amazing (we attended an Emmy's gifting event), and Joshua Tree was a dream. Somewhere everyone needs to visit. 

And as always, your feedback means the world. We will always be posting content that is full of things and places we love. We love using this platform to share our story, our journey and everything in between. We're so excited to get back to sharing more of that, we took the Summer to slow down, work on other projects, and October is going to finally start to feel a bit routine, we so look forward to it. 

Something we've been wanting to do for ages is another Let's Talk! So ask us your questions! Comment below, or send us an email to hello@treasuresandtravelsblog.com

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.
