Defining the ‘Café Vibe’

It’s difficult to describe exactly what I mean by ‘café vibe’, but I’m sure that you already know what I mean by it already.

Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Blue Skies and Brick Walls

It’s been just over a month since Jordan and I were in Ghent. Looking back on it now, it almost seems unreal.

Investeagating T2’s Stainless Steel Flask

Please note: this post is not sponsored. I’m just trying something new! It’s 7 am, and I’m gazing out the bus window with sleepy eyes.

I Consistently Spill Tea On Myself. Help.

We all drink tea differently. It just turns out that one of my tea drinking traits is consistently spilling it all over myself… At a daily rate. I need help, I know.
