So here are a couple of my favorite things from this week:
1. Jasmine Pearl Green Tea
Although it is expensive (more than the green tea you buy in the supermarket) I can bring my own containers and have the store fill them (no packaging to throw out and recycling old jars), there are no bags, strings, wax paper, cardboard box, or staples to go into a landfill or to pollute the air with their manufacturing. Plus, I use something like 5 pearls for a good size cup of tea, so it lasts forever and there is nothing, NOTHING like the heady aroma of jasmine to pull a girl out of a winter funk.
2. Aveeno Body Lotion
It is nothing fancy, and it smells slightly medicinal but winter is hard on a girl who likes a HOT shower. All of my skin is dry, tight, and itchy, but this lotion works wonders. At the end of the day, I still feel like I just put it on (in a non-slimey, non-sticky kind of way).
What are your favorite things this week?
