Happy Tuesday readers! For a while, I have wanted to do a series where I share with you what I am currently enjoying in my free time (when I'm not writing or creating!). After lots of thought and struggle to come up with what it would look like, I finally have created Tea and Tell. In this series, I will be sharing 5 things I am enjoying right at this very moment in time along with what tea I am drinking. I am not a coffee person but I am OBSESSED with all things tea (peep the Drop it Like it's Hot tea bag plate). These can be movies, books, recipes, fashion pieces and more! Below are my 5 things I am loving right now:
1) Podcast: How I Built This By Guy Raz
My boyfriend got me hooked on this podcast during a road trip to watch our favorite college team (Go K-State!) play our rivals over in Lawrence, KS. This podcast is created by NPR and features innovators and entrepreneurs and how they built their businesses or inventions. The episodes range from Starbucks to Kendra Scott to even how Spanx were created. Since this blog is sort of my entrepreneur endeavor, this podcast is a great motivator whenever I feel like I can't do it. Also, this podcast will keep you entertained for hours with the wild stories on how well know names came to be! Listen on the podcast app or here.
2) TV Series: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
From the writer and creator of Gilmore Girls (another all time fave!) comes this fast-paced comedy about a housewife turned comedian after her husband leaves her. It is set in 1950s New York and even though I am only about half way through I LOVE THIS CHARACTER. Midge is a firecracker and her passion and fearlessness is just what we need this new year. This is a perfect binge watch for anyone who is looking for some laugh-out-loud comedy. Check it out on Amazon Prime and try to keep up with the dialog!
3) Favorite item in my closet: This blue shirt from Nordstrom
I got this Gibson Ruffled Handkerchief blouse for Christmas and let me tell you this is probably one of my favorite pieces I own right now. It is perfect for any occasion (I recently wore to both a Bridal shower and out to a nice dinner this weekend) and it insanely easy to care for. I ordered a small and it is a little loose but still looks great. Bonus: it comes in 5 colors!
4) Song on repeat: Little of Your Love- HAIM
This song came up on my suggested list and it makes me break out into a happy dance every time! It is up-beat and poppy without being over the top. These ladies have some serious talent and their entire album is a dream. It puts me in a good mood every morning and makes me ready to conquer each day with a grateful heart. Check this song out here.
5) Tea I'm Drinking: Twinings English Breakfast
I first tried Twinings when I lived in London and now I feel like I can't drink any other brand of tea! Ok that is an exaggeration but this stuff is absolutely glorious. English Breakfast has a bit of a bite so I like it with a bit of milk but it is just as powerful and full of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Savoring my last tin before ordering more! I got mine at World Market but you can also buy it here or at a local grocery store. Best part? It's only $3!!!
