31 Days of Pink

Hey Guys! I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while. Things have been kind of crazy lately!

Today I want to explain why I am doing 31 days of pink on Instagram. 
I took up this "challenge" to wear a something pink everyday for the month of October. 

I did this for my mother, who happens to be a breast cancer survivor, and for many others who have battled or are battling breast cancer. (If you didn't know October is breast cancer awareness month.) 



I know that October is almost over but I think it would be really neat if you participated in the 31 days of pink "challenge" to help support those who are fighting or those who have fought a battle with breast cancer. 

If you want to do this great! I have been posting all of my pictures on Instagram but if you want to post them on Facebook or Twitter go ahead. I don't think that the 31 days of pink is just for Instagram. 

If you do post on Twitter or Instagram tag me!

Thanks for reading!
I hope you have a great day!

(I put quotations around challenge because I don't think it should be very challenging to wear something pink. You could do something as simple as paint your nails pink for the rest of the month to show support.)

A Tea Adventure!

Hey Guys!!


I recently told a coworker that I love tea and she asked if I have ever been to a place called Dragonfly Tea. I told her I had never heard of it so last Wednesday I went with a her and her brother to the tea shop.



When you walk into the tea area this is what you will see. (The owner has a section where she sells tea and the other area is used for massages.) She offers a tea of the day everyday and Wednesday the tea was a blackberry tea. You can try it in a sample cup or you can buy a cup.







 She has many different types of teas, tea pots, jars, and containers. I bought three different types of tea and I bought a tea holder. 

The teas that I bought are... 

Wild Berry Green tea. I can't wait to try this one. Its smells really good!



The second tea that I bought is Chai. I have drank this one and I highly recommend it. I wish I had bought a bigger container. I'll just have to go back and buy more.







The last tea that I bought is Pumpkin Spice. This tea is great! I got 1-2 brews out of a strainer full of the tea ingredients. 





Here is the tea holder that I bought.







Oh, I forgot to tell you that the owner has a book of all of the teas that she sells. In the book it explains how a certain type of tea can help you and it has the ingredients listed for people with allergies. 
I will definitely be returning to this place for more tea. Let me know down below what your favorite tea is.
Thank you for reading.
I hope you have a good day!
