Another holiday, another onslaught of marketing junk that clutters your inbox.
Heart emojis, kisses, thumbs up. It's the 14th of February, people!
"Look at me! Love me!"
Your inbox, the perfect analogy for the state of humankind.
Every person, quietly desperate to be noticed, significant.
"I'm here!"Maybe you wonder, "Why is this? Is there something wrong with us?".
We are not faulty.
We are hardwired for love.
Over the years, I have occasionally come across people I am particularly drawn to. They are different. When they walk into a room, they don't consume the atmosphere and announce "I'm here, look at me!". Their smiling eyes quietly speak without words as they look at you, "you're here!".
So many of us are trying to get love.
I believe love is supercharged by the act of loving first.
It's the act of sacrifice, of looking past the ugly, pushing through barriers, seeing someone for who they can be, loving them, simply because that person is human.
And for us humans, it's in the small gestures that this is communicated.
A squeezy hug.
A little smile.
A kind word.
And when you love first, without even realising it, you are the very thing you desire to be - loveable.
May your 2022 Valentine's Day be filled with a love that sustains beyond human understanding.
Indulge in life.

You're closing in on the start of your day and feel like you already need a break.
Conversations out loud with small people buzzing at your feet.
Conversations in your head with big people who are most certainly wrong.
You've sorted them all out. You don't feel any better for it.
Where did all the energy go?

You've probably noticed how your day flows better when you start with a cup of tea.
Time for yourself. A moment of clarity.
Your morning cup sets you on a good path for the rest of the day.
Combine that with a mid morning cuppa, early, late afternoon sips and an evening herbal and your day is broken into approachable chunks of time.
It's no secret that habits form the basis of success, and a day built around habitual cups of tea creates a perfect framework to organise your day.

If you're just as excited as we were that this could even be a thing, hold on to your knickers, this white tea party is just getting started.
Remember how white tea is jam-packed with antioxidants and supports skin elasticity?
And how can we forget about theanine, that magical amino acid in white tea that gives you a massive mood boost?
Well, what if we added some lemon, a little honey, and GIN?
