Tea Trip!

Yesterday lovely Amy and I dressed up and went to visit the tea shop/house in NY, called Harney and Sons. It is only a little over an hour from us so we took a morning trip to get there. Because we went to enjoy tea and get new tea for our tea parties we had to dress up Lolita. I chose to go classic, one: because I haven't had many chances to wear this outfit and two: didn't want to go too "crazy" for Amy's mother. Here is a pic of me and my darling Amy. We are so close to truly being sisters!

At the tea house there is a shop, a small luncheon cafe and tasting room. After we enjoyed a delicious meal we went to the tasting room and had a great time trying all sorts of tea, from oolongs to black and green teas. It was great! When you purchase tea from Harney's every tin tells you the right amount and brewing time, so each cup of tea will be perfect.
These are the teas I bought. Organic Peppermint and Winter White Earl Gray. The peppermint leaves a wonderful tingle in your mouth and the white earl gray has an almost sweet taste to it. No need for sugar!

Visit the website, you can request a catalog and start exploring new teas.

Enchanted Forest Sprite

In the hours after a snow fall , while the forest is still, this is when the enchanted forest sprite emerges. She travels the forest making sure all the creatures of her domain had kept themselves safe and warm.

In the stillness she takes the chance to play and dance among the trees. She is able to enjoy the enchantment and wonder of the soft covered forest.

But soon the snow will melt and spring will come and the forest will awaken! Then the sprite wont be alone in her journeys through her magical forest.

So at the moment I'm kinda half living back at my parents while my knight is off fighting the battles. I have moved into the guest room so I don't have the ability to completely my room my own. I have found someways to give it my flare and wanted to share this with you.

On the dresser I display all my lovely jewelry on my new dress holder (x-mas gift from my friend). I also love my Ariel box from the days when I worked at the Disney store, and my little frog prince.

My collection of headbands decorate my mirror. Yeah they are mostly black and red, my favorite colors.

Pile of Gothic and Lolita Bibles are always next to my bed cause I can't stop looking at them. Also there is my Angel Sanctuary pillow.

Next to my bed is some photos of the love of my life and the talking bear he left me that says "Goodnight Kittydragon, I love you." Isn't he sweet, I wish he was here.

This is my newly organised closet. My growing Lolita collection is starting to take over.

Hope you enjoyed my little tour!
