Tea: White Chocolate Peppermint (Teavana)
Finally! A tea from Teavana that I actually love!! Containing white chocolate, cocoa, and candy cane pieces, the smell of this tea alone is delicious! Steeped, this Rooibos blend is nice and light with just the right amount of peppermint flavouring. The fact that it’s caffeine free makes it even better! My only problem with this tea is the price, which is a little bit too expensive for my taste. As long as you are willing to spend a bit of extra money, however, White Chocolate Peppermint Rooibos is a delicious treat to curl up with over the holiday season!
Book: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
2013 seems to be the year of Rainbow Rowell for me! I can’t get enough of this author! After waiting on the holds list at work for over a month, I finally got my copy of Attachments to read! Unlike her other novels, Attachments is a work of adult fiction. The novel focuses on Lincoln, an internet security officer who has just started working at a newspaper. Tasked with reading flagged emails for inappropriate staff conduct, Lincoln comes to loathe his job as the office “spy.” When the emails between Beth and Jennifer start popping up on his flagged list, however, Lincoln becomes intrigued. Beth and Jennifer’s conversations are witty, interesting, and very very personal, but despite his greatest efforts he can’t stop reading. The real trouble begins when Lincoln realizes he’s started to fall in love with a girl he has never even met. Cute and sweet, I can’t seem to put Attachments down! At the pace that I’m reading I’ll probably be finished it by the end of tonight!
