The Liberator: Dark Chocolate Mocha Tea

Today, I made myself a cup of Dark Chocolate Mocha Tea. It was heavenly! If you are interesting in coffee tea, you neeeeed to check out this website: 

Java Tea Co. has the coolest website ever and their unique coffee teas are amazing. I got to try The Liberator (what they call their mocha tea) for my tea reviewing job. I loved it. I made it how the Java Tea Co. suggests so I used frothed milk (more like whipped cream) and shaved dark chocolate on top. yum.

Peach Melba Tea

Ever since I received my first shipment of tea, I've been drinking 3 or 4 cups of tea a day. I'm also pretty sure this is the best job ever. I get paid in TEA! What could be better? (Other than getting paid in books!) Hopefully some of my reviews will be up at teaviews soon. 

Today, I enjoyed a few cups of this Peach Melba Tea from It was by far the best peach tea I've ever had and I can't wait to write my review on it.

New Photography

I've been experimenting with different lighting and different camera lenses. Here are some of my favorite pictures I took last week. I'm hoping to do some senior pictures sometime soon! I just love photographing people but lately all I have is myself.

Still Knitting That Scarf...

I've been so busy with school and whatnot that I haven't been knitting as much. I think I'll make a list of things I want to knit every week so that way I have a plan!

Also, I might be attending this Vogue Knitting event at Chicago in November: 
They have some really neat classes you can sign up for.

Guess who just got a job as a tea reviewer? I could die with excitement! I'm officially apart of the team at and I will be writing reviews on various teas in the near future! Once I begin writing reviews, I'll share pictures of my tea along with a link to the review I wrote.

Anthropology Mug

I bought this beautiful Anthropology mug in Chicago yesterday and I've already used it 6 or 7 times! I'm pretty sure it's the perfect size and the colors are lovely. They typically have sales online so if you don't have an Anthropology near you, you should definitely look online for good deals.

Early Morning Adventures

This morning, almost 4 hours before I'm normally awaking on Saturdays, I went on a lovely fishing trip with my brother. 

The beautiful, smoky mist hovering above the lake.
The sound of birds singing morning songs in the trees. 
The turtles splashing about. 
The lily pads floating on the still water. 

It was perfect.
