It's Tea Time...

There are many health benefits to drinking tea, here are some of the main reasons why I like to drink them.

1) Tea contains antioxidants which helps maintain your body's defenses against free radicals.

2) Tea may reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke because it may prevent your arteries from getting clog.  

3) Tea (green tea) can increase your metabolism, by drinking a few cups a day it may help you burn additional calories.  

4) Tea has less caffeine than coffee, so if you need just a bit of a pick-me-up without over doing on the caffeine, drinking some tea might just do the trick.  

5) I personally think that tea tastes great!  There are so many different varieties of tea out there, you can always find something that can be enjoyed throughout the day or for winding down at night.
It's a pretty great stress reducer for me.  Have a sip of tea, relax your mind and body, and imagine all the problems going away :)

Here are some of the teas that I've been enjoying lately that I feel are great for aiding you through a stressful day or for relaxing your mind right before bedtime. Of course, these are my personal opinions, and they do seem to work for me, but it could also be psychological (I may feel a certain way, and therefore I think it works).


Yogi Tea is 100% natural.  Each tea has its own specific purpose and function.  I love how they have a different saying/quote on each tea bag.  As you drink the tea, you will also be inspired by the words and hopefully gain a piece of wisdom.

These are just a couple of the quotes that I've found on my tea
bag, you will have to drink them yourself to find the rest :)

Green Tea Goji Berry was the first one that I tried from Yogi Tea, it does contain a bit of caffeine from the green tea.  Goji berry are well known in Chinese Medicine for the support of the liver, the immune system, and for better circulations throughout the body. A blend of organic green teas is added to provide antioxidants for the body as well.  My favorite thing about this tea is that it smells extremely good and it tastes even better.  I love the fruitiness of this tea, but without being too overwhelming.    

Sweet Tangerine Positive Energy uses a blend of Organic Assam Black and Green Maté in combination with some herbs that are traditionally used to uplift the spirit to help you feel more positive. It combines lotus flower flavor with tangerine flavor and lemon myrtle to create a blend that smells and  tastes really good. Although the first sip did kind of remind me of a certain brand of flu medicine that I often take during the flu season, I still love the smell of tangerine in the tea.  

Woman's Moon Cycle is made with a combination of dong quai (often used in Chinese Medicine), chaste tree berry, and organic raspberry leaf, all of which have been known for centuries to address menstrual discomforts.  Chamomile is also added to this blend for relaxation of the body and mind.  This particular tea is made with the purpose to reduce menstrual discomforts on days leading into and during your menstrual cycle.  I think this particular blend is not the type of tea that you will like instantly; it's an acquired taste.   I didn't like the very first cup that I had, but after the second and third cup, the taste didn't bother me that much anymore.  It tastes like cinnamon mixed with dong guai, I wouldn't say it's the best tasting cup of tea that I've ever had, but it's not the worst. Sometimes I would drink a cup before bedtime, and it relaxes my mind and body.   


Celestial Seasonings' Sleepytime tea is also one of my favorite tea.  I normally can fall asleep pretty easily at night (knock on wood), but on days that are too hectic or stressful, I tend to have trouble sleeping at night. On those nights, I really do need the sleepytime tea to relax me before bedtime.  It seems to work for me, I like to drink it after dinner or an hour or two before bedtime, and that seems to relax my mind and body quite a bit.  I actually started dozing off in front of my computer one time, I felt pretty relaxed.    
I also like how they have a special quote on their box, and the tea bags are string-free and staple-free.  


I love most teas from Lupicia.  They are usually extremely fragrant and full of  flavors.  I received this on my birthday one year and I've loved it ever since.  It's a black tea, so it does have caffeine in it.  It tastes like a really flavorful cup of  black tea with a hint of vanilla.  I think anyone who loves to drink tea, can appreciate this one.  It's not made to aid any particular symptoms or ailments.  I don't know if it's really meant for a birthday or not, but I do think every birthday should be as delightful as this tea!

Enjoy a cup of tea, and let your mind feel free <3

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.  
I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.)

I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if you accidentally smud…

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it (Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it! 
Why I like the Formula:  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I really did apply it…

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7N Mocha Latte) Review

Oh my gosh, I think this is my favorite Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color so far.  The last couple of times that I decided to dye my hair, I went with the redder shades, they came out nice, but harder to see under certain lighting.

For this coming fall/autumn, I decided to go brown. I bought the Hello Bubble Foam Color in 7N Mocha Latte which came in the new "Girl's Day" packaging-I'm actually not sure who they are, but I'm guessing they are a K-pop group. This product is definitely one of my all time favorite!

This box came with all the usual Hello Bubble Foam Color components; it included the hair colorant, a hair coloring cape/cover, a pair of gloves, and a small packet of conditioner (I prefer to use my own).

From looking at the before and after photos on the box, I did not expect the color to be very noticeable on my hair.  The color itself seemed a little too dark to have any effect on my already dark hair.   To my surprise, this color gave me the most …
