I am a tea drinker lover all the way and for the summer I like to have a nice cold tea. I been loving this one by Teavana. This Tea is part of their  summer collection teas . It smells & taste like fresh Peaches.  IN addition it  has Sweet Pine Apple & Lemon Verbena that creates calming . To sum it up it a awesome fruits relax Tea .

2.Caribbean Caly[so Mate Tea ( right side)

This is my getaway Tea.  It has sweet mango, Pineapple , red apples with toast coconut & lemon grass.  Its like having a Caribbean drink  with out the Beach . I love this during the afternoon hours where I want something more sweet & tropical.

Both of the these tea are great cold   and hot .

Andalou Naturals -Body Lotion Lavender Thyme

20131023-175655.jpgThis product by Andalou Naturals  is great just like many of their products, which they have a pretty good variation of products and scents. Andalou naturals products are natural  and cruelty -free. They are  at a great price point too, which I love.

Why I love it : I love its light texture and its refreshing scent. I would use this lotion more for summer due to its lightest compared to winter that I need a heaver cream formula because of my over dry skin. If you like light texture creams you should try this for sure.Plus its a great price .  🙂
