It takes some serious willpower for me to get out of my very cozy extra warm bed to go run. Its always nice to have a warm cup of tea after my morning run.

Flossie Fern

For the unusual and allure (let's try this again) Flossie Fern was one of those shop that grab my attention from day one the name, the pictures and then the blends. So I finally stop lurking and decided to purchase a sample set.

My six honey pot sample pack ordered back in February was package so neatly and ready to be sniff, the ones that got my attention in her etsy shop at first read:

Basil Rose - Herbal meets the sweet and innocent and it lives up to its name, I don't get any orange, this blend goes dead on into an herbal basil when the warmth of your skin comes in contact with this balm then gentle you get a hint of rose here and there. Basil tends to do that take over anything and everything but it's a happy welcome because it plays nicely with roses.

Dark Waltz and Graveyard Dirt - Could be cousins if you ask me, dark yes they both play on the dark side with notes of patchouli (smells so dirty) and that's a plus everything these days come with the illusion of being too perfect and these two scent decided not to be the norm.  Dark Waltz is the more romantic one in the dry down, and Graveyard Dirt is just that Graveyard Dirt.

For The Love Of Tea

I love me some tea no matter the time of year I drink the most 4 to 5 cups of tea per day. We are talking about black tea, green tea and cacao Yum Yum tea.

Let me share some of my must have teas:

I will start with my morning choice Oolong Tea, it's a cross between green and black tea and it is not bitter like green tea and not rich as black. I also like adding a dash of vanilla powder to add a smoother more aromatic tea blend to get me going in the mornings.

Pu'erh Tea for whenever I need something rich something with a little more BAM, I reach for this yummy deep cup of tea. Taste even better with a little vanilla powder.

Cacao Tea, I drink this at work two cups per day most days. It taste good yes but it also has a long list of health benefits.

Jasmine Green Tea lets count the ways how I love you and want to be just like you. You save the best for last right? It rounds out all the sharp edges, melts away all the day's worries and puts you at ease. It's an amazing blend of floral and green, perfect cup of tea to end your day.

Thank You Mother Earth


Anti-perspirant are known for keeping us smelling like spring fresh and mountain breeze by reducing sweat and underarm odor. How is this achieved you ask by using aluminum based compounds that clogs our sweat ducks and this in return stop the flow of sweat. Now to my understanding our body is built to eliminate toxins and to do so we need to sweat. If we are blocking and trapping sweat from flowing this will result in the buildup of toxins in our body.

Some studies show that this is not the case because it is the liver and kidney responsibility to remove toxins from the body. In my opinion our bodies sweat for a reason and if we stop it from doing so we interfere with the natural flow and balance of things.

If this does not get your attention please take a look at the long list of chemicals in your anti-perspirant and deodorant.

To name a few:

Parabens are chemicals used as preservatives and they can also mimic hormone estrogen and can play a role in development in breast cancers.

Aluminum has been linked to causing Alzheimer's disease and breast cancer.

Propyleen Glycol serves as a principal component of fiberglass, antifreeze, and engine coolants. Ok that is all that I need to say.

Fragrance sweet poison, fragrances are synthetic compounds derived from petroleum that can cause cancer, nervous system disorder, allergic reaction and birth defects.

The next time you use your ant-perspirant be conscious that these chemical not only block toxin from eliminating itself from the body but they also get absorbed in our lymphatic and nervous system. If we do not allow our body to do its daily function it will cause build up and break down our immune system.
