Tea Tuesday October - Teavana White Ayurvedic Chai Review


Hey, everyone!  Welcome back for Tea Tuesday, but not just any Tea Tuesday... we've hit October.  Being a Halloweenaholic, October is a very magical month and therefore, required a very special tea to review.

This is the most amazing time of year -- in my opinion :) -- and I needed to chose a tea that fit the bill.  You know, crunchy leaves, chilly nights and glowing jack-o-lanterns... you know, the season of FALL kinda tea ;)

With that being said, I chose Teavana White Ayurvedic Chai Tea.  I wanted something sweet, something spicy and something warm.  This was perfect.

Teavana describes this as a "white tea + warming chai spices balanced by tropical coconut + pineapple".  I've always been a fan of white tea blends in general and the pairing with the chai is a nice twist.  I also love the addition of pineapple which gives a bit of sweetness.

A spoonful of honey is my favorite sweetener for this tea and it makes a wonderful drink on chilly days.  I definitely recommend!

I adore this very seasonal appropriate tea :)  The smell reminds me of fall.. very cozy and spicy!  I wish I could find this scent in a candle!

I really enjoyed October's tea and I hope you give it a go!  What are some of your favorites?

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,

LOVE FOR 5 - September's Favorites 2017


Hey, everyone!  Welcome back for another month of amazing products and new favorites.  I discovered some special items in September and wanted to share them!

Here's my Love for 5 :)


First, I wanted to share my newest fragrance love-- YSL Black Opium :)  This adorable mini has become my go-to scent and once it's gone, I DEFINITELY need a full size!  The key notes are Coffee Accord, Orange Blossom, Cedarwood Essence and Patchouli Essense.  I've never had a signature scent, but I think I finally found it!  It's the perfect blend warm and spicy.

Here's a skincare must-have!  I've always adored Mario Badescu's Original Rosewater Facial Spray, but I actually love this one even more!  It's a very soothing and I love to use it as a toner before moisturizer.  I also love the smell!

Onto this drugstore gem.. say hello to my FAVORITE lipstick!  I'm not a fan of regular lipstick (I love tinted balms & matte liquid lipsticks!) but Revlon Black Cherry is the exception :)  Just tapping the color to create a tint is the main way I use it but of course, it's very buildable!

This is the most gorgeous nude polish!  I've worn it a couple times this month and I can't get enough of it!  The formula is amazing and very long lasting.

This is was recommended by my best friend and I'm so glad I got to try it!  This herbal tea has a sweet honey and orange flavor that's great before bedtime.  I need my own box!


There are my September Favorites!  What are some of yours?  Let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,

Nails of the Week : Favorite Nude Polish!


Hey, everyone!  Here's Nails of the Week, featuring my favorite nude polish of all-time.  I love writing these nail posts and figured I was long overdue!  I kept things pretty simple... my favorite nail looks always are :)


For this manicure, I started with OPI Barefoot in Barcelona which is definitely the sole reason for this post.  I never thought my fair skin would suit nude polish, but that was until I found this gem.  Two coats were more than enough to create an opaque wash of color.  It's the perfect nude... not too light or yellow-based and very flattering.

Then to top it off, I sealed the darling nude with my most used top coat.  Essie Gel Setter Top Coat has been a long time love.  It leaves my nails protected with a nice shine.

4 Days Later... no chipping whatsoever! Such a great polish :)
