Tea + detox = teatox

I am working on improving my health, mind and body, and like any rational person I check everything out...symptoms, doctor orders, ideas, suggestions, natural remedies, etc.  something I have been reading about lately and seeing everywhere it seems is teatoxes.

Well I found several companies, but the company I liked the reviews, what I read etc. the most was a company called Your Tea.  They have several teas for several health related issues and a detox tea.  The detox tea comes Ina gluten free version as well!! My interest is up already😜, especially with the havoc gluten has been throwing my way lately! They have 14 and 28 day products so since I am a newbie to the land of teatoxes I played it safe and got the 14 day!

Well it showed up about fast service!! I bought it on Monday..thank you Memorial Day discount👍🎉👍😄 and I got it first thing today.  Not going to lie I felt like a kid on Christmas morning between this package and another package that will get a blog later on this weekend😳🙈

I wanted to share the packing and my excitement...and then in 15 days I will let you know how it went and how I feel!

Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!!

May's Must Reads

I am trying a new thing that I have enjoyed off the vlogs I watch for beauty and hair tips!  haha no worries, I am not branching out least not quite yet:)-

This is a monthly feature of books that just won't get out of my mind.  The genre's will be mixed, the authors varied.

Please check these amazing artists out and let me know some authors that I should check out!

Kristen extraordinaire!  Really I could have chosen any of her books, but this book is just delicious.  Tack is sweet but bad, harsh but gentle, loving but brutal...and all in the same package.  Red aka Cherry aka Tyra sounds like one of the coolest characters of all time...seriously her fashion, attitude and approach to love/family/ NEED to check this book out.
Easy to read, easy to follow and better yet...huge amount of support from on line communities.  I read it and then googled about it...immediately I found online support on Facebook, Pinterest, Yahoo communities, etc.  However, I will say it is more on my mind for the exercises & recipes provided then the suggested meal plans.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Christine Feehan makes books that people who like thrillers, mystery, romance, sci-fi, scary, sweet, sexy, etc. can all enjoy.  I finished this book last week and still think about the characters and how she deftly interwove these characters into the overlaying story line of her series..
I will try to have a more diverse selection next time, but I have not really read any history, political, religious or pure thriller type books recently that have stuck in my brain.  So that is on my to read and do list!

Memorial Day 2014

To the men and women who have served and gave their lives protecting our great nation...and to the families who have lost loved ones...Thank you.

Super Exciting News

I love to read..for some people reading is a little hobby, for others more of an addiction..and well I am definitely closer to the addiction side.

BUT now I am super excited because I found a way to read more books and share about them!  I will soon get my first book to officially REVIEW!! 

I picked my book and it is on its way I will have another book review posted soon!  I can't wait to find new authors, read different genres just immerse myself more into the world of words and different descriptions!

Do y'all read book reviews? What do y'all look for?  What makes them something you enjoy reading?

Did you know?

North Carolina (I ♥️ my home state) has a toast,

I did not know this until I was searching for some new poems and local authors.  Once I came across it though, I loved it and had to share!

I mean it must be good if it made me want to come back & create a new blog (sorry for the long absence) get yourself a little beverage, enjoy the beautiful weather we are finally having and here's a toast to all of us, but especially any North Carolinians😜

Here's to the land of the long leaf pine,
The summer land where the sun doth shine,
Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great,
Here's to "Down Home," the Old North State!

Here's to the land of the cotton bloom white,
Where the scuppernong perfumes the breeze at night,
Where the soft southern moss and jessamine mate,
'Neath the murmuring pines of the Old North State!

Here's to the land where the galax grows,
Where the rhododendron's rosette glows,
Where soars Mount Mitchell's summit great,
In the "Land of the Sky," in the Old North State!

Here's to the land where maidens are fair,
Where friends are true and cold hearts rare,
The near land, the dear land, whatever fate,
The blest land, the best land, the Old North State!
