So, I'm fairly certain that this Chocolate Mint Crunch cupcake from Georgetown Cupcake is identical to a previous Thin Mint cupcake, but since it has a different name I *had* to try it out, haha. Upon tasting it, it is essentially the same cupcake, with chocolate mint cookies in the cake and a thick chocolate frosting swirled on top. And just like the last one, I'm not a fan of mint chocolate flavors, but I did enjoy the rich chocolate frosting for obvious reasons :o)

This Banana Hazelnut cupcake from Georgetown Cupcake isn't exactly a combination that I would've thought of for a cupcake - but somehow it works out really well, haha.
The banana cake base is covered in a thin layer of chocolate ganache, and then rolled in plenty of chopped candied hazelnuts. All together, it tastes like a Nutella banana bread with plenty of crunch, aka delicious! As you can see it's fully covered with the chopped hazelnuts, which provide an excellent crunch in every bite. Anyone that likes banana bread will love this variation!

A while ago, I heard about the popular London Calling candle from Bath and Body Works, and thought it sounded amazing. A tea and lemon scented candle, yes please! While I never got my hands on the London Calling candle, I was very happy to see this London Tea & Lemon candle recently at the store, and immediately picked up a few since they were on sale, haha.
The smell is AWESOME. I mean, if you don't like tea then probably not, but to me it's the perfect blend of tea leaves and a sweet lemon scent. I LOVE this candle, and of course it doesn't hurt that the label is pretty cute too. Having studied abroad in London for a semester during my Junior year of college, I definitely have a special connection to London. This amazing candle just helps to reinforce my love of London even more now, haha!
