Christmas has seriously worn me out- I think I'm getting too old to drink and party for more than one evening a season. I need another break to get over this break. I've spent most of yesterday (and planning most of today) in my pjs, drinking this amazing English Rose tea from Whittards and blog reading with Chris watching bass tech videos on YouTube.

This tea is seriously amazing and a great excuse for using my tea-submarine (I rarely buy loose leaf tea)  I'm not going to lie I bought this tea purely in the name (I wanted to tell Chris I was drinking him as his last name is Rose and rose related jokes are my favourite hobby), but I am surprised with how tasty it is- I knew I would enjoy it but I didn't think I would this much. It's delicately floral and super yummy. Perfect blogging companion.

Like Wendy I have tees from the past I no longer seem to wear (it's the boobs) so updating them into halter necks seems a great idea. Therefore her DIY is perfect.

Although it's cool and rainy outside I love Emily's pink dress...

... and the more weather appropriate layered look from Sara (serious jacket envy) .

  1. I love the tea submarine! I'm not a massive fan of flavoured tea though, just the standard English tea please!

    I also need a day or week to get over Christmas. I also needed a day between Christmas Eve and Christmas day just to be still for a bit. Ha.
