Life is chaotic.

So, I am really sorry for the lack of posts right now. I haven't had the time.

My Nana is staying with us for the moment. She had surgery, and a few complications along the way.


I got a few things in store when I get back.

Almost There!

Tomorrow is Friday, guys!

I am excited, are you? I'm not really doing anything for the weekend, but are you?

Anywho, here are some videos to help you make it the next 24 hours!

Happy Almost Weekend! :D

A very long update.

Hey guys.
Sorry I haven't been posting. I have been drinking tea, we'll get to that.
But my lack of posts has to be for the fact My Nana had to get tests done, she just had surgery, and to top it off, Mom has not gotten any better. :/. So, I have been running around trying to do what I can to make things as smooth as possible. So. Yeah. -deep breath-
So. Tea. Yeah. Lol
I can't remember the order I drank in, so here are the teas I drank over the time I was gone.
Gold Peak Tea: Sweet Tea. This was an ok tea. I think it was too sweet. If there is such a thing.

I made Blueberry tea in this ice tea maker I picked up in. It says you can make loose leaf in it, and you can, just it takes a lot to get a good strength. So, I think I'll stick it tea bags. :). Otherwise, this is a good tea, and a good tea maker!!

Nana had testing, so I stopped for a Pumpkin Chai Late from Caribou coffee. Omg. Heaven. That is what is in that cup.

I got a nice sampler from Zhena's Gypsy Tea. I have tried everything. And it's so good. Zhena's never ever disappoints :). I loved the Egyptian Mint the best.

A nice mix of Ginger twist and Bangkok from Spice Merchant. It was a nice mix, and honestly I think the reason I didn't get sick. My whole family came down with a sinus infection. I haven't gotten it yet. -fingers crossed.-

Chai tea from Sahara Bar and Grill. It was ok. Not the worst tea, not the best. It hit the spot though. :). We also smoked Berry Mint Hookah, and that was amazing. Dave wanted to take me out to relax. :). It was much needed!

That's about it on tea.
I am watching my Papa's dog, Cooper. He's a cutie!

So. What have you been up too??

Tea Swag Review: The Ingenuitea and Teavana Perfect TeaMaker

So, I wanted to start reviewing the stuff I (And my Mom) have.

I thought first I'll review these, together, since they are a lot alike, I think. We have The Ingenuitea by Adagio Teas ( Which I have no teas by them! I must buy some soon! And recommendations?) and Teavana's Perfectea Maker thingy. Mom's is the Ingenuitea. I have an older model of the Perfeatea. I got it at GoodWill for 3 bucks. If you're not as lucky as me, it'll set you back about 20 bucks. And I think it's worth every penny.

The Two Brewers

The only difference I think between the two, it the Ingenuitea mesh comes out. You can either see it as a good thing, or a bad thing. I hate it. It also tea stains.  But I like how all of it is see through, and the handle is pretty cool, with the grip and all.

(Today's tea!)

What I like to do, is fill up the cup you are going to use with boiling water, (or regular, and you can just microwave the water to get it hot) add the tea to brewer, and then add the cup of water to the brewer, that was you have the right amount of tea :).

Here's some random pics while I was waiting for the tea to brew! :D

             If that's not sexy, Iunno what is.    


All set! 

When you are done, you're tea leaves is right there. You can either steep again, or just throw it about. :).

I would buy one of these. They are so worth it. :)

What do you steep in?

Weekly Tea!

This week in tea!

I learned how to do a Late. Did you know you can froth milk with just a mason jar? Add milk to the jar, and shake it for about 45 seconds. Taa Daa! Frothed milk. Put it in the microwave for a minute, and you got warm milk!

Spice Merchant Florence tea is a chocolate black tea. And it's amazing as it sounds.


Didn't do a whole lot of tea drinking this week. Saturday I ventured to Whole Foods for the first time. It was ok. It was a little over whelming. I got some tea. -shrugs-. It was to expensive for my taste. And everything fresh, I can get from my farmers market. Steaz was good. :). Nice lemon flavor.


Dave and I went garage sale-ling. I came across this thing:

It was in front of someones house. It's called a Little Free Library. I took a book and a book mark. It had book crossing books! Yay! It was the coolest thing.


I got this tea from Whole Foods. It was really good! I made another Late! Zhena's Gypsy Tea is Coconut Chai. Heavenly. Not too too coconuty and the right amount of chai!


First day back to school. Mom and I went to a little diner down town called Daner's Diner. I love that place. They know us by name, and we know them. They always ask us about our day. They're so nice. I love Mom and Pop places.

Well, Barb is a tea drinker. And she's been a waitress for a while. She always hates the taste of the ice tea that has been out all day. She freshly brews her tea, and it is the best ice tea I've never had from a food place :). It had to get mentioned!

Tea on Lovelies!

Weekly Tea!

Hey guys. I am attempting to do this from my iPhone. There is a app called Blogpress. It's given me trouble in the past, but everyone needs a second chance, right?


Awake Latè from Starbucks. I did a favor for a friend, so she picked me up some. :)

Thursday- Sunday.

No tea. Sorry guys. I was cleaning my room. I seriously did belong hoarders. I am still straightening everything out, but I will post pics nest week. Putting it out publicly really helped. Thanks for all the support and stuff, guys. :). Thanks


Black Current tea by The Spice Merchant. I love this stuff. It's nice and light, but a huge caffeine kick. We ran out of coffee, so I am relying on Tea for my buzz :)


Strawberry Mint Lavender Tea by Tea Haus of Ann Arbor. It's an oldie but a goodie. One of my favorite teas. :).


I have been going through some female problems. And this seemed to help:

Made the cramps stop at least. Thought I should share.

What are you sipping today, Lovelies?

Cleaning my Room.

I think I am going to publicly say this, to get my ass started....
I am a boarder line hoarder. My room, I haven't cleaned since Febe was a puppy. She's turning 5 next month. I had piles upon piles in my room.
I kept putting it off, making excuses. I haven't had a sleep over, or any one in my room. I'm embarrassed of it.
This morning. I woke up feeling sorry for myself. I wanted to make a change. So, I just started cleaning.

I will be gone this weekend, hopefully with before and after pictures.
May the force be with me.
And I hope you have a good weekend. Lol.
What is the biggest thing you ever tackled? What was the hardest positive change you made?

Sharpie Tea Pot and Cup! :D

So, I found this on Pinterest. 

So, I gave it a try.  I also used color sharpies, to see that it'll do. And it stayed. :) I also put mine on a baking tray. You don't wanna touch anything until it 100% dry. It'll smudge. It's also hand wash only! 

So that is what I did today. :). How was your day?

Weekly Tea!

Hey Guys!
Weekly tea! :D

Last Week:

Wednesday: (7-14)
Frutto Blanco Pearls mixed with Precious White Peach. Also, a little nick nack my Mom got me :). It was a good tea. I put a little agave in it.
Twinings Earl Grey. I bought it for the BF. And it still was just 'ok.' tea. So, I took it back. Lol.  D:. It's good tea for bagged stuff! I think. 

This week.

Earl Grey Late from Starbucjs. Also got a Jimmy John's Vito for a dolla! (Dolla's make me Holla~! (Sweet Jesus, Honey Boo Boo)). It was good. I love Starbucks's tea. Tazo <3 br="br" nbsp="nbsp">
I got something quick at Meijers before we went off to Ohio. :). It's ok. I'ts got High Fructose Corn Syrup. So, Snapple really isn't 'made from the best stuff on Earth'. Just Sayin'. 

Coming home.  This stuff is seriously the best. I love love love Peace tea. Peace tea and Sweet Leaf. Screw the rest of the pre-made crap.
Mint-Chilla Chai-Nilla from The Spice and Tea Exchange. :). Good stuff. I love The Spice and Tea Exchange stuff. I just wish one was closer! I should have *should have* made this a late. But, it was good with just some cinnamon agave. 

 Mom and I made some Lemon Ginger with Cold Brew tea. I put some honey in it. And it's really good. It's settling my tummy too, with a caffeine bonus. 

What have you been brewing lately?

I interrupt this ONNM for a Recap on my Weekend!

So, OMG.. I had a great weekend. I went to Ohio. We went left Friday night. We went to Cedar Point on Saturday. And we went to the Toledo Zoo on Sunday then came home.  I had a blast. I think I got sun stroke and got blisters on my feet on Saturday though. That's what I get for being indoors 24/7. That was pretty ew. And Dad made me get a wheel chair for Sunday. That was fun. I crashed into a Baby. The baby didn't even wake up, so no therapy there. I'm a winner. Lol.

We got lost, on Saturday, driving back to the Hotel. We got into the ghetto. Which, for those of you who don't know, My Dad grew up in the heart of Detroit. He was a spec of salt, in a whole lot of pepper type thing. So, we started with Ghetto Jokes. He told me he once saw a Check cashing place, laundry mat, and a party/liqueur store, all on one. lol. I had to share. Also: Alan's tip of the day: If there is a bank, you are safe, if there is bars, run real far.

So, I give you the big pic dump of my vacation:

So. Yeah.
I am not sure if I like the water mark thing or not. I just wanted to try.
I hope you have fun looking at my pics.
I promise a Om Nom next Monday :).
How was your weekend?
