In my Finish 7 by Summer, I have a collection of tea, makeup, a book, and something that smells super yummy.
I have a couple of teas from Davids Tea that I want to finish. The first is the “Me to We” tea which was a promotion to donate the entire cost towards the “Me to We” charity. The tea only has a little bit left in the tin, because it was that delicious. It is a fruity blend, no black tea or caffeine at all. The taste is bold and bright, like cherries and raspberries.
The other Davids Tea is the White Nectarine white tea. This one contains: Apricots, white tea, blackberry leaves, safflowers, and natural nectarine flavours. It is a very light, delicate tea that I find is amazing for unwinding in the evening. As much as I enjoy this tea, I haven’t been reaching for it, which is why I am setting a goal to actually finish it.
The last tea was actually given to me by one of my coworkers. Steeped Tea is a home based company, similar to Epicure, Mary Kay, Avon, Tupperware, etc. I haven’t experienced them until I tried this tea. When I lived in Victoria, BC, there was a tea that I used to get from a locally owned and operated tea store that was a woman’s tea blend. I remember it had cinnamon and juniper in it, and since then I have missed it greatly. This one is pretty similar and is a nice tasting tea that is also medicinal. The ingredients are apple pieces, rooibos, ginger pieces, cinnamon, cardamom, fennel, juniper berries, raspberry leaves, chamomile, lady’s mantel, cloves, orange peel, St. John’s wort, black pepper, silver weed, and natural flavours.
I have two makeup pallets that I want to try to get some decent wear into. The one on the left is by Quo and the one on the right is by Pacifica. The Quo pallet already has some good use for the darker colours, but I want to try to use the brighter colours this Spring. The Pacifica eyeshadows are very light on the skin, even the dark blue. They all blend together quite nicely but I find they don’t last as long as the ones from Quo. Still, it is a natural product that is made from coconuts, I believe, and so I would like to get my money’s worth.
I love incense and candles. I always have something burning when I am at home. This pack of chocolate chip cookie dough incense has been hanging around my basket for quite awhile, so it is time to use it up. I love the scent but it makes me hungry so I have been avoiding it. Not anymore!
My book choice is Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, the second book in the Lunar Chronicles. This one is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and so far it is pretty good. I am on page 30 and so far so good. I’m immediately sucked into the environment and I can tell I have many good nights ahead of me.
That’s it for my Finish 7 by Summer post. What are yours?
