The #OOTD…


The outfit of the day marked by a hashtag has long been tag of choice for those who feel like they’re looking their best for the day’s to-do. Take a look at my personal Instagram and I’m quite guilty of this practice of slight self-admiration and accomplishment.

I could say I am a heavy coffee drinker, however, I could say the same about my teas.  I have a whole cupboard dedicated to a variety of dried leaves that I could steep and last me though the next nuclear apocalypse.  I am THAT obsessed with it.  Everything from Lapsang Souchong to Pu Erh, Orange Pekoe to Matcha Green.  If you need some Chamomile or Jasmine, it is in there.  Stop on by, we will have a cuppa.
