    Sips By Box | Making the Sugar Cookie Tea yum!

    Sharing a look at what was inside my February Sips By Box! There was a snowstorm going on, as I filmed this video and I decided to make the Sugar Cookie Tea…comforting, sweet and delicious. I share exactly how I made this tea, start to finish! And I also share a little look at the snowstorm outside too. I was visiting Halifax, NS and it was fun to see what a winter storm looks like there!

    A special thank you to Alice Haenim for helping to “sniff test” each tea!

    Afternoon Tea Necklace | Pixie Wing

    Care for a cup of tea? How whimsical and darling is the Afternoon Tea Necklace from Pixie Wing? I first found out about this necklace from @schmoolovesbeads on Instagram. I immediately added it onto my wish list! I loved the UV-resistant enamel detailing and how each teacup moved/stacked on top of one another. It was such a clever and unique design. ☕️✨

    I couldn’t believe it when Pixie Wing reached out to me and wanted to know if I would interested in reviewing this necklace! Such a dream! It is even more special in real life and has such a lovely weight to it. A huge thank you to Pixie Wing for gifting this necklace to me ☕️✨

    The necklace arrived in beautiful packaging: a lovely white box with a cloth bag inside. Inside the bag was the necklace and a necklace extender. There was also a polishing cloth inside too.


    The Afternoon Tea Necklace is made of premium brass with a thick plating of fine 925 sterling silver. Each tea cup has eye-catching UV-resistant enamel detailing. It also available in a green colour option too.

    Pixie Wing ships worldwide and 5% of each Afternoon Tea Necklace goes to Rainforest Alliance sustainable tea growing project ☕️✨

    The necklace has a lovely weight to it. It also comes with a necklace extender option. I chose to wear the necklace without the extender (for now). You can see how I styled it below:

    I also filmed an Instagram IGTV video sharing a more in-depth review of the necklace as well as video closeups of the necklace in motion! It is so eye-catching! You can watch the video HERE or down below:

    My Favourite Christmas and Holiday Teas | Beadmas 2020 | #BeadmasStories

    Happy Beadmas 2020! I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week!

    In today’s blog post, I am sharing my two favourite Christmas teas from DAVIDsTEA, as well as two Christmas/Holiday and Tea-themed OHM Beads bracelets.

    So, if you are ready, make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let me share this collection with you!

    OHM Pretty Tea Cup, OHM Milky

    My Favourite DAVIDsTEA Christmas and Holiday Teas:

    OHM Tea Bag, OHM Lucky Red OHM Whip Bracelet

    My first favourite Christmas tea has been a long-time favourite. It is called Santa’s Secret from DAVIDsTEA. It has black tea leaves, candy cane sprinkles, peppermint leaves and vanilla flavouring for ingredients! Here is what DAVIDsTEA has to say about it:

    Ever wonder how Santa manages to deliver all those presents in just one night? He uses a special combination of Chinese black tea, peppermint leaves and spices – all sprinkled with real little candy canes. It’s both energizing and remarkably soothing. All Santa needs is one cup and his motto changes from “ho ho ho” to “go go go.”

    – DAVIDsTEA

    I love making Santa’s Secret as a latte. It is a cozy, delicious treat. This tea just brings me back to that cozy, light-hearted Christmas feeling.

    I decided to pair this tea with my Lucky Red OHM Whip Bracelet and some of my favourite Christmas/Holiday and tea themed charms.

    OHM Pretty Tea Cup, OHM Milky, OHM Milk Slim, OHM Hot Cup

    My second favourite Christmas tea is one that I discovered, last year. It is the DAVIDsTEA Gingerbread Matcha. It has just the right balance of sweetness and spiciness to it.

    Sweet, spicy & heartwarming. Inspired by the comforting flavours of freshly baked gingerbread, this energizing all-natural matcha green tea is the coziest way to get your daily dose. Try it as a frothy green tea latte topped with a dash of cinnamon a holiday treat that’s as delicious as it is comforting.

    – DAVIDsTEA

    Gingerbread Matcha has Matcha green tea powder, cane sugar and natural gingerbread flavouring as its ingredients.

    OHM Beadmas Bell, OHM Snow Angel, OHM Beadmas Tree,
    OHM St. Nick, OHM Beadmas Wreath,

    I enjoy making Gingerbread Matcha both hot, as a latte or as an iced tea. You might remember an IGTV video where I made it iced, for Christmas in July!

    Tea PAWty | Ella’s “Gotcha Day” Celebration

    Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. 

    #BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

    Yesterday (June 28th, 2020), we celebrated Ella’s “Gotcha Day”. I had never heard of a “Gotcha Day” before adopting Ella. A “Gotcha Day” is like a birthday, however it is celebrated on the day you brought your furry friend home.

    Ella’s “Gotcha Day” was so fun! I made sure the day was extra special for her. We have Ella some special new treats and bones! And I also had a fun virtual Tea “PAWty” for her. I filmed the Tea “PAWty” for my #TeaTimeTuesday IGTV series. If you would like to join in on the celebrations, you can watch the video HERE or down below:

    Have you heard of a “Gotcha Day” before? I think it is such a cute idea!

    I had so much fun enjoying tea and treats with Ella and Georgina. I hope you did too! xo
