Rainy Day with Tea (And a Giveaway!)

Hi guys

Busy season has officially started at work and yesterday was the first mandatory Saturday we worked.

But today I’m free. It is a rainy day so I’m just having another solo day at home.

I’m curling up with a cup of Tazo Tea and a cool Kit Kat treat the bae got me from the aussie Kit Kat Chocolatory (we need one in NY!). You can’t get better than customizable kit kats.


I actually have a lot of tea stored up so I wanted to do a tea set giveaway for you lovely readers! US residents only. A random winner will be chosen on Feb 19th.


The tea set will include: Melville Candy Honey Spoons, For Tea’s Sake Sleep Well rooibos tea and spoon; a jar of sugar cubes, and a Mr. Tea silicone tea infuser.

All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know how you like to spend rainy days and what your favorite tea flavor/brand is.


Enjoy the mew life,

Holiday Gift Guide (And giveaway!)

As you all know and have probably been looking forward to, Christmas is coming soon! Maybe some of you got into the holiday spirit real early and are already done with your shopping. For those of you who haven’t yet, here’s a short guide that will hopefully provide you with some ideas. A few items are pricey but for the most part the items are $20 and under.

Also, this is really a wishlist of things I would love to receive (hint hint to any generous souls out there, also a reminder to people in-the-know that my bday is also next month ;)) but nevertheless I think they’re great ideas in general 🙂

Now that we’re done stuffing our faces with great food and filling our shopping bags with great deals, it’s time to give back!

There’s still time left. So in case any of you are deciding where/who to donate to and need some ideas, here are some of the ones I’ve donated to today:

  • Your alma mater is a good choice, especially if you were the recipient of scholarships and other aid funded by donations when you were a student. #payitforward!
  • Charity: Water as it’s one of my go-to organization as I’ve written about in the past.
  • People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) is an organization that as it’s name spells out, assists the homeless, particularly in finding permanent housing and other services such as employment, healthcare, counseling, etc. Everyone deserves to have a home to call their own.
  • Your local food bank or soup kitchen would appreciate any help, monetary or otherwise
  • Your workplace might be participating in giveback projects so check with your office managers. Currently, my office is doing a canned food drive. We’re also doing a Christmas Toy Drive project in which participants choose a child’s wishlist ‘card’ and buy and wrap the items on the list.

Hope you were able to get some inspiration from these.

Please let me know in the comments, your charities of choice to help.

Also in the spirit of #GivingTuesday and this holiday season, I will be doing a series of giveaways on the blog. The items will be pretty random and a vary of things I have that I think you guys may use and enjoy.

So be on the lookout for the first giveaway in a few days!


Enjoy the mew life,
