New Year’s Resolution

I know I haven’t been blogging much since I’ve started this blog, a lot has been going on in my life. But I promise I will do better this year! In fact, I will be making it one of my new year’s resolutions. 2017 has been like a marathon run for me. So many opportunities had been presented to me, and I tried to take them on as they came, but the whole year has just felt like non-stop running for me. Writing has always been an outlet for the introverted person I am in real life, so I’ve decided I will use this to grow into a better person this year. As I end the year with a relaxing tea ritual, I reflect on 2017 and make a plan to be a better person in 2018.

Here are my 10 goals for the new year:

  1. Be comfortable in my own skin
  2. Expand my comfort zone
  3. Learn from my mistakes
  4. Focus my energy inwards – Drink more tea, Meditate
  5. Be understanding
  6. Show appreciation
  7. Have an open mind
  8. Exercise
  9. Find my passion
  10. Live in the moment

So, cheers to 2018!

Also, keep an eye out for more updates in the future 🙂

DAVIDsTEA 2017 Advent Calendar

It’s that time of the year again, and I’m so excited! This year is special, because I got an early Christmas present/ part-of-my-birthday present from my lovely boyfriend. Here is the DAVIDsTEA 2017 Advent calendar!

The advent calendar comes in this colourful box with this winter scenery and a see through area where you can catch a glimpse of the numbered boxes inside. The packaging box feels pretty strong and hardy.

Opening up the flaps, you’ll get a better look at the actual calendar. They are actually coloured boxes that functions as little drawers for you to pull out and access your teas. The drawers are numbered for the days of the month (24 days until Christmas) and are scrambled in no particular order, which I thought adds an interesting twist to the calendar.

Once you pull out the drawers, you will see that the name of the tea and its brewing instructions listed on the bottom. The tea itself comes in a small sample sized metal tin with a window for you to see the tea leaves. I think one tin is good for approximately 2 servings of tea for me. On the back of the tin is the DAVIDsTEA logo and the name of the tea gain in English and French.

In the centre of the calendar, you will see a red box with a star on it that says ‘Joy Inside’. Wonder what it is?

There is actually a star ornament inside the box, which you can put on your Christmas tree. It also comes with a coupon to buy more tea from DAVIDsTEA.
