The only thing I ever want is for people to do the best that they can, no matter what it is. Try and fail? It’s better than not trying at all, right? We plod along, we dip and we weave, we rise and fall, and most of all, we learn what works for us along the way. It’s something that wasn’t always fostered in me when I was growing up and I’m still figuring out how to move through my fears to give something a go rather than let it hinder me trying. It’s incredibly important to me, so, I’m going to just do my best anyway.
Recently, I’ve had something on my mind that I didn’t quite know how to talk to you about, because, for starters, I’m not about to get all preachy about anything – yuck! – but also, when I apply this to my own life, I do the best that I can. I take the information that I have with a grain of salt, weigh up the risks with the benefits and figure out the best way it can fit in best with my life.
What am I talking about exactly? Continue reading

Its no secret that my favourite tea in the history of tea, is Earl Grey.
My Mum always has a box of it hand just for when my sister and I go to visit, I rave about it so much, I’ve been known to inspire others to venture into the world of Earl Grey tea (especially French Earl Grey) and I’ve got some friends that keep a box handy for when I pop by. My purse constantly has a strong scent of bergamot because I insist on carting bags of earl grey around, just in case, and most birthdays and Christmases I’m given some variation of T2’s French Earl Grey products (my special occasion tea). Earl Grey tea is my jam! (so to speak) Continue reading
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably noticed that I really really (REALLY) love tea. I love a hot cup of earl grey on a cold and slow morning, I love a bubbly and naturally sweet iced tea in the summer time, I love collecting new flavours and I even bathe in the stuff! But the thing I love most about tea is discovering the medicinal properties of the different herbs – meaning that you can drink specific teas to help your body do its thing!
From time to time, I’d like to explore with you these medicinal properties (goodness knows I need another reason to drink more tea, don’t I?) in my Tea Fiend series. Just remember, if you are going to explore these options, best to opt for organic tea (I’d be happy to give you a guide to my favourite brands within this series – just ask!), and don’t be afraid to try a pre-made blend (it will only taste better that way) or even experiment in blending stand-alone herbs that you like (you never know what you will come up with).
