Caramel Shortbread Latte

This is one of my favourite Christmas lattes. I like to save some so I can have throughout the year. It’s so creamy and rich. I love it so much. I have so many mugs, that I have to rotate them throughout the seasons, and soon it’s almost time to put away my Christmas and Winter mugs and bring out my spring and summer mugs! I thought I would enjoy it in my cozy sweater mug.

This is an herbal tea. I enjoy it so much, I wish I could order it all year round.

Yoga

Every week I like to write small ways we can boost our happiness. I know that some people, like me, are still in their winter. Going through winter can be really difficult, because the majority of the days are dark, without a lot of sun. Although I realize that it can be worse if you are in Alaska, since they go months without sunshine. Winter can just be unbearable. So I have thought of ways that can boost our happiness, with very little effort, and mostly at a cost of nothing. I like to call it Feel Good Fridays. I was inspired by talking to one of my cousins because she was going through life, and came to me, looking for ideas to help boost her energy and motivation. Which is basically how this blog idea was inspired.

The other night, I couldn’t fall asleep, so I thought I would practice doing some yoga. There are various types of yoga, there is calming yoga, and there can be workouts, like core strengthening added to yoga poses, too. I am slowly starting to get into a yoga routine again because of the other night.

If you are new to yoga you can find lots of beginners videos on YouTube. Since this might be a new habit for everyone. But if you like yoga, and would like to practice yoga every day. I suggest starting small. You can find 10 minutes videos. Then before you know you will like to do more. I find it’s easy to start a habit by starting out and taking baby steps, and then you will be able to add more to it.

Yoga has a ton of benefits, aside from the obvious of making you more flexible, but it has other benefits, too. Yoga can help you with digestion, it can strengthen your immune system, it can also help you sleep better.

I have always loved practicing yoga, so I am glad that I am starting to get into a habit again.

Day 40

This lesson is from Tuesday.

For those who are new to my blog, I like to write about a lesson and an affirmation that I either learned that day, or sometime ago throughout my life. I hope my wisdom helps inspire others.

I got the pleasure to baby sit my niece on Tuesday. I love that I get to hang out with her. It’s currently our winter right now, so I am able to take her outside and let her play in the snow. She loves sledding. I make sure she is all bundled up since it has been really cold over here. It sort of reminds me in the fall time, that even though it may look nice out, I should still bring a sweater with me, just in case. In the winter time, I like to bundle up, too. But it just brought back a memory of the times where I felt like I didn’t need to bring a sweater, and in fact, I actually did.

Today, I will for sure bundle up to ensure that I stay warm and cozy, no matter how nice the weather may be. It’s best to be warm, and cozy, than cold, and sorry.

Day 33

Right now, where I live, it is our winter time, and I am not a fan of the snow, and the icy sidewalks that comes with the freezing temperatures. Although I enjoy being cozy in my house because I can wear my cozy socks, and big sweaters, and be under my fluffy blankets. I also like lighting my candles, too.

I really miss seeing and feeling the sun shining on me. I miss the warmth I would feel on my skin. Sometimes I feel sad, when I can’t see or feel the sun. There are some hours throughout the day, where I can see the sun, which makes me happy. I normally like to drink a lot of orange juice as a replacement, since orange juice has a lot of Vitamin C.

Today, I will do or eat something healthy as a replacement from something I am currently deprived off. Especially something that has a lot of vitamins in it, so I can feel replenished. Eating oranges, and drinking orange juice will help me feel better since I am not getting much vitamins from the sun right now.

Let it Snow Latte

It’s another Tuesday which means it’s another edition of Tea Tuesdays. Earlier I had enjoyed Let it Snow in one of my winter mugs. It tastes like eggnog. It has a nice sweet cinnamon flavour with cloves. It is amazing! I love eggnog, and I look forward to it every year.

I love this mug, my boyfriend bought it for me a few years ago.

Day 175 of 192

Hey everyone! I am so happy that I made it to week number 25, item 175! This is truly amazing! I am almost done this challenge. I still have a bit more stuff to do, so I might do another challenge for the new year. I will keep you posted.

Today’s item is my sister’s shirt that I ended up having since it was in my container we quickly packed from our mom’s house. I am going to see if she would like this shirt back. I know she wouldn’t be able to wear it now, but it will come handy in a few months from now, when it is our summer.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 14

I thought of this cool concept that instead of having to go into debt, or stress yourself out buying something for someone, we can simply show them how much we care about by practicing random acts of kindness.

Today’s challenge is do donate unwanted clothes to charity, or you can exchange them with family and friends. This challenge is perfect because where I live, the weather is getting colder, so this will be able to help others brace the cold weather.

Day 167 of 192

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

In my container of things that I am trying to organize and downsize my possessions. I came across an old pair of knee socks. I bought them so long ago that they probably no longer fit me. I am going to give them to my sister, for some reason she loses a lot of her socks. There’s a chance she might appreciate these when she goes on walks and to the park with her daughter.

Day 123 of 192

Hey everyone! I can’t believe there are only ten weeks left of 2020. That is absolutely crazy!

Today I have decided to ask my mom if she wants any of my scarves. She decided she wanted this scarf, and she had told me that most of her coats are black, she thought this scarf will compliment her coats.

I am glad that me departing my items is helping so many people.

Day 121 of 192

This is Wednesday’s item.

I have cleared through my excessive winter gear. I have kept two of everything right now. That way I can wash my gear and not have to worry about not having anything to wear when I need to do my errands.

Unfortunately this beautiful scarf that my mama crocheted didn’t make the cut. But I have worn it several years growing up.
