Today marks 9 years of blogging here, hooray! It's been a great experience finding fun new items, especially foods to write about! While I am not writing about anything groundbreaking, I enjoy having an outlet to "talk" online about delicious eats and random store finds.
For this anniversary date, what better way to "celebrate" than with some June Georgetown Cupcake flavors! Up top is the Caramel Cookies & Creme, which consists of a "Caramel cookies & crème cupcake topped with a caramel cookies & crème buttercream and topped with cookie crumble". It's the perfect match up of caramel and cookies and creme mixed into one cupcake - I really enjoyed this one! There were big chunks of cookies mixed into the cake portion which is perfect for anyone that likes cookies and creme foods.
On the bottom is the Peanut Butter Banana Marshmallow Fudge, which consists of a "Fresh banana cupcake cored and filled with marshmallow, topped with peanut butter frosting, a fudge star drizzle". First, I have to say there's a LOT going on with this cupcake, haha. It feels a little haphazard with four completely different tastes going into one cupcake. That being said, I love Georgetown Cupcake's peanut butter frosting and that was definitely the highlight of this cupcake for me. If you like variations on banana bread like chocolate chip or peanut butter, you'll love this one!

Let me just start off by saying that I fully intended on NOT going to Bath and Body Works during their current semi-annual sale because I still have a ton of candles to go through in my home. However, I recently went to the mall for a different errand and of course wound up going home with these four candles in the end anyway, haha.
The semi-annual sale is a great time to stock up on items that you already normally buy, especially when you add coupons to the sale prices. Also, sometimes you'll find some older candles or random scents that you hadn't really noticed before on the shelves, which can be a fun little surprise if it's one that you particularly like. The Banana Split Milkshake was a surprising one for me, since banana candles to begin with are pretty rare. After seeing it as one of the big hits of the semi-annual sale purchases online, I was very curious to see how it was in person. Personally, I got a very warm but light banana pudding/bakery scent which I liked, and I had previously bought and liked some of their Banana Pudding mini candles in the past. I'm glad I was able to get two of them, as there were only three on the shelf when I stopped in. Even if you're not a crazy candle collector like I am, the semi-annual sale is still going on both in stores and online if you want to check it out!
