Tea Straw + Lovely Links
Is it me or did this week just fly by? This weekend we have a packed schedule. Tonight we’re disco dancing in the park as a family under the stars. G’s hoping they will play a little ABBA since she’s pretty much obsessed with Mama Mia since we listened to the movie soundtrack 1,000+ times on our “Baby G Tour 2013" last summer in the van. *cue the soundtrack playing in the loft again…sorry W…* On that trip we may have sang every song at the top of our lungs through 6 states. I can’t wait to take her to see the play live when she’s a little older!
My hair is officially in the “WTF?!” stage of No Poo.
Saturday we’re drumming in the park at a large African Drum Circle. DTLA is so great for free fun stuff like this, the bar is high for London town. That evening I’m sneaking away to help a girlfriend on her website and have some adult time. Sunday we’re off to the Santa Monica Farmers Market to meet up with G’s LA BFF to celebrate her birthday with pony rides and yummy wholesome food.
I posted about this tea straw on my instagram and people were really into it. It’s a nifty little invention making it possible to drink loose tea without the hassle of a tea bag. I planned to talk about more DTLA small businesses on here which obviously didn’t happen but if you do find yourself downtown I recommend popping into “Create Your Health Tea" on West 5th Street. They are super friendly and have a tea for just everything plus every tea accessory you could think of under the sun. All the teas are prepared in their at home kitchen and lovingly packaged with hand written labels. I’m currently drinking the "Looking Good" mix which promotes healthy weight loss and reduced bloating.
And if you were to need some weekend reading for over a cup of tea here’s some posts from around the web that have entertained me this week. Have a wonderful weekend friends!
THIS woman just melts me when she talks about anything love releated, just so sweet.
I literally got sucked into watching THIS for 15 (ok like 30) mins this week. It just blows my mind these people are hitting play at the same time and don’t know it. I love things like this that organize the “chaos” in the world. Good job Spotify.
THIS story blew my mind…how is it even possible to accomplish this, I thought Mac would be set up better….His story telling of the Secret Service showing up is just great.
After blogging for almost 10 years now THIS made me smile.
Can you tell I have everything marriage and babies on the mind lately? can’t get enough of THIS instagram lately. The brides are SO beautiful.
THIS long but good read. Work environment is such a big thing to me lately as I look for a new position.
THIS made me miss home (Red Hook BK) a LOT.
Been trying to work THIS video into a post unsuccessfully for sometime now since it’s SO relevant to young girls. I cringe a little every time G asks me if she “looks pretty” after I put lipstick on her (for play). This video is fun and dead on with it’s message.
