January's Discover Box | TeaTourist

January's Discover Box

It's absolutely no secret how much I love tea. I recently bought a print from DotCreates which reads "A good cup of tea makes everything better" and I don't know about you but I've never heard a truer word spoken. It really does!

Last month I shared with all you fellow tea lovers, the perfect monthly subscription box. The response was incredible, I never knew how many of us tea-lovers there really were. So, when the lovely Joss emailed me last month and explained she'd sent out January's Discovery Box I was genuinely so excited! 

December's box was filled with festive flavours, I couldn't wait to see what the guys had in store for January.

HAPPY SUNDAY!!

This week I finally gave myself the big kick up the a*re I needed to dust my camera off and get round to filming, editing and uploading a YouTube video to my personal channel. I did not realise it had been 3 years since I had uploaded anything... Crazy!

Cute Valentine's Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Tuesday, February 14, 2017


Valentine's Day. A day to celebrate love, whether that's expressing your love for your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, dog, cat or even your gal friends. 

As I've mentioned briefly already (in my Sew Bloom review post, please be sure to check it out if you haven't already) S and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. This will be our 3rd and although we're not about the conventional gifts we do get each other a card. To me, that means a lot more than a bunch of flowers or a box of chocolates. 

A card and the words written in it is something I can treasure forever.  I know he's taken a lot of time deciding what card to buy and I know he's taken a lot of time thinking about what he's going to write. 

That to me means the world. So rather than buy each other lavish gifts I decided to make some super cute peanut butter chocolate cookies - because S adores anything peanut butter flavoured and although I'm a bit "love it or hate it" I wanted to experiment.

Flying The Nest | 6 months on...

Flying The Nest | 6 months on...

This week marked 6 months since I officially moved out of my family home. S and I had technically been living together on-off for 2 years previously but on the 1st September 2016 we took the leap and signed our lives away the contract for our new home. 

Looking back on one of the most stressful yet exciting life adventures I've experienced so far, I really wish I'd taken the time to get the camera out and film. For those of you who don't know we have our own YouTube channel, where we share videos (or vlogs if you're down with the kids) of fun days out and life experiences, I really think it would've been nice to have something to look back on. 

That said, while I sit here typing this post and I think back to just how stressful the whole experience was, I'm somewhat proud of myself for getting through it even if there were the odd tears of frustration.

I also can't actually believe it's been 6 months already!
