You guys, it rained for like seven days in Athens. SEVEN. At first it was nice to have a little drizzle, but by the fourth day, people were not having it at all. I wasn’t too fond of the crappy weather, BUT I managed to keep my spirits up with a little help from World Market.
In preparation for the fall season, I gave my retail therapy a fall theme. The Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea was the best way to greet the day in the mornings. If you’re not into the pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, I would high suggest this tea because a) it tastes like fall (pumpkin and cinnamon) and b) it’s so light yet filling at the same time.
Making a cup of the pumpkin spice chai tea is also a sure way to make your kitchen smell delicious, but if you want a little something extra, you should try World Market’s Madagascar Vanilla candle. I’m usually deterred from vanilla scented candles because they smell so artificial, but this one was so homey and light, and I couldn’t resist.
During my trip, I also bought Dolcetto Cookies which were a nice treat at the end of the day.
Obviously it doesn’t take a lot to make me happy, and these little things have definitely kept me sane during these nine days without sunshine. The weather is clearing up though, so I am super excited to be able to go outside and enjoy the fall weather.
